Hello to you – it’s 11:55 am as I start to write to you. It’s overcast and cooler today….thank goodness! Our oak tree Yolie and the neighbors cottonwood tree among other’s have begun to shed leaves and are literally scorched at their tops. Watering doesn’t seem to do much – almost seems to make it worse. With all the chemicals in the water it’s probably like putting gasoline on a fire (https://saymber.com/2015/07/03/3-july-2015-do-you-know-what-is-in-your-cities-drinking-water/). Last night as I fell asleep there were just all kinds of pops and cracking sounds as our house was once again pulled in different directions. I’m pretty sure the root systems of the large trees around us are shifting under the house too as they grasp out for water. Freaks me out lol! Hopefully rains will come soon for us and any other parts of the world that are scorching right now too.
Anyhew – I hope wherever and whenever you are stopping by here that you are finding ways to enjoy the moments you are in as each one comes.
Something I have to remind about a lot is that no matter what is going on in the headlines or mainstream media, MY life, is great and I need to stay in gratitude for that. It doesn’t mean I don’t care others are suffering or don’t try to help, but I can’t allow the shadows of others to dampen my personal light. So when I pray/meditate each day, I give thanks for the blessings in my life and pray that all other life forms on the planet may be blessed too.
Some people make really poor choices in life and with those choices come along the consequences….I’ve been there many times. The only way to deal with it is to go through whatever those consequences might be. Some of us are surrounded by great support systems and others not so much. I try, when I can, to be helpful to people who have meandered down the wrong path but I won’t carry them….you don’t learn anything by being enabled by well-meaning people when it was you that, to be blunt, fucked things up. Own your mistakes, learn from your mistakes, try not to repeat them and pay forward your gratitude for surviving the mistakes by sharing your experience, strength and hope with someone headed down the same road. It probably won’t stop the person from making the mistakes, but may help them find their way out quicker than it was for you!
Don’t know why but that was what came to me to write today. Hope it’s a message someone passing through needed! Much love and light to you today!
