Spiritual Thought for The Day

Once she became aware, she began to see the forest through the trees. ~CordieB.

She walked this earth with little ease
Since others hearts she strived to please
But once she learned to please her herself;
And still respect the needs of else
Her walk became clear and free with ease
At last, she saw the forest through the trees

~CordieB

Set Your Mind Free! 

I looked to the heavens, and what did I see….

The wonders of eternity, looking back up at me . . .

I looked to the skies and what did I see…

The vastness of infinity, empowering me

I gazed at the stars…and what did I see…

The miracle of creation shining back up at me…

I smiled at the man in the moon…and what did I see…

A sphere in perfect suspension, smiling right back at me…

Sometimes, the unknown abyss manifests possibilities

Familiarization, though comforting, often restricts creativities

Fear not the unknown, as she beckons your mind…

To explore her vast mystery…escape the confines

That limit your vision…and retard ability…

to remove mental shackles. Set your mind free!!!

Eternal Regret -I Forgive Myself; but Can’t Forget~By CordieB  

I’ve lived a lifetime of one regret

that’s dimmed with passing time; still yet

love and conscious won’t allow me to forget

 

And so I often trick my mind

to place sordid memories far behind

still… regret creeps in from time to time …

 

And then sometimes I even pretend

that day had actually not transcended

Imagine . . . starting anew again !!!

 

but reality knocks with raging force

thus I am left with grave remorse

perhaps that day changed my life’s course??

 

forever regretful, my heart still aches

but my God can NOT make mistakes

I convince myself for sanity’s sake

 

And so what IS, IS. What’s meant shall be

and that’s my whole tricked reality . . .

My life’s anchor through soul’s eternity  . . .

Regret’s but a piece of life that’s made me, me . . .

~Written in memory of my dear mother, Marion Wallace, who died of a massive heart attack when I was 15, shortly after we’d had a terrible argument and I had left the house.   I miss you, ma.

I am Who I Am…

I am who I am. . .

Am I who I am or. . .

Am I who I think I am. . .

or

Am I who others think I am

or

Am I a collective version of both?

Am I the same as I was yesterday

last year,

5 years ago?

Has there been regression

or

Has there been growth?

Have I learned from my experiences

or do I still do

the same things …

the same way

and receive

the same results

which I know are not

the results I really want. . .

or

Am I beginning to try different things

or do things in different ways

which bring forth new experiences

new lessons . . . 

new blessings

But all in all. . .

I am who I am . . .

and I am exactly as my Creator

would have me to be at this very moment! 

ok. . . it’s another moment. . .

and another. . .

I wonder how much I’ve changed……. since two lines ago?

That I’ve changed is a wonderful thing to know. . .

for…anything that is not changing…

can not in fact be living…

So, I am…a changing being…
