Hello to you, how are you doing today? Today has been ok….there have been some tears the past couple of days. This morning I found out there were large earthquakes in Italy and Nepal…..spiritual “epicenters” of this world for sure. Then there is the ongoing misery in California and Idaho (fires) and Louisiana (flood recovery). Every time I look at the news there is something that makes me go “WHAT?!” and seldom in the good way.
What’s weird is the day before last I put that world map I shared a picture of with you…that had prayers on it under my mattress along with all the other prayer lists! Yesterday afternoon I was outside enjoying the cooler temperatures and listening to the Coldplay song Midnight I had just bought and then one of those planes that leaves exhaust trails flew right over my house….I got so mad and hurt! WHY are they doing this?! Don’t they realize what goes up must come down on ALL of us?! Unless they are walking around in bubble suites….they get to breathe it too!
My middle fingers were going and I just kept thinking, “why are you crapping all over what I think of as heaven?!” Anyhew….I had a sort of tantrum with that apple tree of ours that I think I told you had all the leaves go brown on it like it got a blight or something. I must of looked like a crazy woman flinging dead leaves at the sky…all over the yard! SO MAD! Then I sat down and tried to calm myself. I layed my hands on the ground as if I were doing Quantum Touch with a person…looking for mutual comfort but I didn’t find it…it wasn’t pleasant. I felt nauseous and overwhelming sadness. and I just cried. I know the reason for the crying was probably just the “other side of anger” which for me is usually tears.
The same thing happened today…..beautiful dark blue sky and then there they come with a trail from one end of the horizon to the other! This time I treated it like a “test” and vowed I wouldn’t get mad like I did yesterday and I just cried instead. I feel pretty powerless about this “airplane poop” thing. Unless I’m willing to do something more than blogging and other things I do….pretty powerless! I doubt writing letters to the EPA and all the others who should be doing more about this isn’t going to do diddly…so I haven’t. Sigh. Not going to go into any more of it beyond what I’ve mentioned. I need to practice what I preach to others and stop giving my personal power away to people, places and things that don’t deserve it! Just have to let this go with Love or it will rot my soul!
For anyone who reads this that is suffering in any way…..my love and prayers to you. Don’t give up!!!
This drawing I did today is for you….for me…..for us…..
So today has also been a day about music. For me, music and the people that make it are my family that can be anywhere and everywhere my flesh and blood family and friends cannot! Music is the light that can pierce through the deepest darkness I may slip into. My comforter. Thank you to all of you workers of light…musicians.
I was listening to a song I first heard this week that our friends at Spirit Post shared (Shantala) and was curious to see if there were more songs like it. Well, like typically happens to me, I was then was lead to an old friend that has been a comforting voice through so many of my years….Tina Turner! I had wondered where she was as I hadn’t heard anything about her for some time….she’s been doing wonderful things! I love you Tina! Thank you!!! You are AWESOME SAUCE!
Tina Turner – Sarvesham Svastir Bhavatu (Peace Mantra)
Tina Turner – We Don’t Need Another Hero [Official Music Video] – this song has gotten me through some of my darkest times!
Kyle’s favorite: Tina Turner – Golden Eye (HD)
and just because this is beautiful and we need more beautiful sights and sounds in our world don’t we….her voice reminds me of my friend Sarah Brock.
Just for You by Jackie Wygant 24 Aug 2016
When shadows fall and all seems dark
Close your eyes and listen
In the simple song of the birds
And the passing clouds
A symphony plays
The silence is anything but silent
Embedded within every Element is a song
A melody, a prayer, a mantra, a phrase
