Balance at the Park in June

Balance -CordieB

Balance -CordieB

Late evening contemplation in the park
sipping wine till light turns dark
picking minds and hearts apart
gazing at the wonderment of Sun’s retreat
as Moon assumes command; taking seat…
Sending Troup de Breezes; defeating stagnant heat
Mindless peeping as lovers fuss or swoon…
to birdie’s perfect God-sent tune…
Life’s balance at the park in June

I Can Spread Like Wild Fires… Another Spiritual Riddle ~Written By CordieB


I can spread like wild fires

From one to another

I’m highly contagious

Among family, sisters and brothers

I spread oblivious, at times paralyzing dread

Among unwitting lovers

Many fall so easily for me

Instead of falling for love

Leaving their souls in disharmony

minds and bodies devoid of

natural defenses; protection thereof

If one soul is infected

I can spread to the mass

I have no preference or penchant

to any race, creed or class

I multiply and mutate

With a mere, whispered suggestion

I frequently blow up to pandemonium..

becoming wide-spread infection

I can began as a simple idea

Quickly manifesting into reality

a mere negative thought passed on

is how I’m always first conceived

Deceptive; I am never what I appear

I am the root of all evil,

I am the spirit of fear…

Written by CordieB.


Fellow blogger, phaelosopher, so clearly reminds us in his recent artlce, “A Matter of Choice, The Power of Fear or Love on Swine Flu .. that…

Love lifts the spirits, and with the lifting of the spirit comes an increase in life force energy within our entire being. These are not simply flowery woo woo proclamations.

Placing ourselves in a loving attitude has a calming, harmonizing effect on our cell physiology. It also increases circulation and has a structuring effect on the water that flows within the body, and the organizing effect on the energy field that flows around, and extends beyond it. This produces and enhances a field around us that ultimately influences what happens to us — what we actually experience — from one moment to the next.  More…

A Spiritual Riddle – We can quinch your thirst completely; then take your breath away!

©2007-2008 *BaGgY666  on Deviant Art

We’re an everyday family; quite familiar without doubt!

Although one often starts arguments, whilst another maturingly puts them out.

And the lightest sometimes blows her temper, but quickly quiets down

When mother speaks her peace; gathering everyone around…

We can quinch your thirst completely; then take your breath away!
Stability we promise; whilst burning energies counterplay;

We usually work together–an intricate balanced act….

Though at times our ego over feeds us; causing us not to interact;

Although you may often prefer one or two of us to another

If one were not created; the world you know would be a blunder

We yin and yang superbly; a beautiful well balanced family…

Our harmony is so transparent that you may fail to see . . .

Our fluid inner beauty; our solid grounded love…

Sometimes, flighty dispostion – bringing heat to all thereof

You exhale one of us each second; into you she gently flows…

One’s 65 percent your makeup; although you may not know. . .

One brings purity to impurities with the warmth of her touch;

Another provides homage to most of what you see; and everything you touch!

Dare not to underestimate us; we’re most powerful and vain!

If we suspect you’re disrespecting us; we’ll cause you plenty pain!

If you look into our eyes, we’ll most surely hypnotize–

Most find us quite alluring; many are simply mesmerized!

We are needed for survival; without us, perhaps there would be no birth

We are the four Essential Elements: Water, Fire, Air and Earth

The Heaven-Hell Love-Hate Rollercoaster Ride

Heaven-Hell Rollercoaster

Relationship Rollercoaster ~CordieB

This seemingly unending roller coaster ride is wearing me out

Why won’t the conductor stop this ride . . . I scream! I cry! I shout!

I hold on tight; while alternately waving my hands wildly in the air

I look to the clouds, Oh God, I whisper a desperate prayer

The roller coaster ride is making me feel ill, ill, ill!

Round and round; up and down; over and over;  never still

My stomach drops–aches with nausea; head aches; heart races

Round and round; up and down; recycling, revisiting the same stories, spaces, places

The roller coaster stops briefly; Alas, I can now get off —

Finally! I catch my breath…Enough is enough is enough, IS ENOUGH!

But NO! . . . the conductor obliviously pulls the switch again!

I curse! If I ride this damn ride once more; I’ll surely go insane

Yet, with half-closed, squinted eyes, I ascend slowly, steadily to the top of the track

I reach the top – Whoa! Here I go again, plunging swiftly, violently back

Into the abyss of twirling ups and downs; abrupt turns, turn arounds

I swear when this roller coaster again slows down

I’m jumping off! I’d much rather be bruised; broken, pray tell . . .

Not dead, from riding this never ending circle of heaven hell

…Get on a calmer ride; perhaps, maybe? the merry go round

Then again, I think I’ll stick, perhaps, maybe? to solid ground

~By CordieB


I wrote this poem today and drew the picture after being hurled down another steep rollercoaster ride – my fault though!  F…. me once, shame on you . . . F….. me twice, three, four. . . . shame on me!  Anywho . . . I read the words below on Lostwidow’s blog some time ago.  The words she shared came back clearly to me.  Thus, I clicked on over there, read it about twice; now I’m cutting and pasting to share the words with you below.  


There are people who can walk away from you. And hear me when I tell you this! When
people can walk away from you: let them walk. 
I don’t want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. I mean hang up the phone.

When people can walk away from you let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left.

The Bible said that, they came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us.[1 John 2:19]

People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are not joined to you, you can’t make them stay.

Let them go.

And it doesn’t mean that they are a bad person it just means that their part in the story is over. And you’ve got to know when people’s part in your story is over so that you don’t keep trying to raise the dead.

You’ve got to know when it’s dead.

You’ve got to know when it’s over. Let me tell you something. I’ve got the gift of good-bye. It’s the tenth spiritual gift, I believe in good-bye. It’s not that I’m hateful, it’s that I’m faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have He’ll give it to me. And if it takes too much sweat I don’t need it. Stop begging people to stay.

Let them go!!
If you are holding on to something that doesn’t belong to you and was never intended for your life,

then you need to……







“The Battle is the Lord’s!”

Buz word of the Week – Harmony

Hello World! 

Warning!  I’m a little off balanced today.  But don’t worry, that might just be a good thing!  I used to think that being well balanced was a good thing until watching the Today Show this morning.  Now, I realize that even if I am out of balance, it really isn’t that awful-because balance is not good, AT ALL.  According to James Arthur Ray, “balance is bogus. . . .True happiness: it’s not about balance; it’s about harmony.” 

Well thanks a lot Mr. Ray for tipping my scales this morning and throwing me WAY off balance.  Just when I thought I was doing great–I was feeling well balanced, I was feeling quite happy about most of my life; along comes this expert telling me that “balance is bogus.”    In fact, Ray authoritively tells us, “where there is balance , there is no energy ; nothing is happening .” 

According to Ray, “In contrast, when all pieces move together in complete harmony, like the instruments in an orchestra, levels of happiness, wealth, and success soar.”  

I was simply devastated!  I had a hard enough time trying to get somewhat balanced; now I’ve got to strive to have everything working together like instuments in an orchestra!  And guess what, Mr. Ray can show me how to obtain this harmony for only $16.47 – Imagine that!  Sixteen forty seven will not even throw my checkbook out of balance!    I’m only sixteen dollars and forty seven cents away from harmony, and thus ultimate happiness!  I can’t wait to purchase this book.  I wonder if I will be coached to sing a song in the shower and hum a melody while cooking dinner for my family.  I’ll be whistling to work and keeping a harmonic rythym on my keyboard while I’m balancing harmonizing the corporate budget.  Ooops, did I use the word balance again; THAT’S NOT GOOD. 

When I was a girl, my parents thought it was a virtue to simply be well rounded .  Now that I’m older, roundness doesn’t seem to attract anything– especially happiness from outside sources.  As time went on, being grounded became the key to happiness. . . . imagine that?  Going from roundedness to well grounded.  Every time I tried to stay stuck to the ground, something  or someone would simply push me and make me roll, because I had spent so much time practicing on being well rounded, I could easily have been mistaken for a ball.   

Soon, I realized the key was not in what I did, but in what I thought.  If I thought happy thoughts all the time, one could roll over me with a freight truck, and I’d still be laughing.  It never happened, so I can’t really prove that theory. 

After thinking all positives . . . I moved on to dressing the part.  We are what we wear was the evolutionary discovery.  So, I’d break my budget ensuring that I had the latest and greatest business suites to match the role of my ultimate goddest.  Mind you, I was only making minimum wage.   But hey, I was aiming to be the executive, so I dressed like she did!  I ended up with with FAR too many credit card bills and not enough money  – but I dressed fabulously!  No one told me that I needed a good credit score to get into management.  Silly me!   

I was feeling really down and out about this, then I was monumentally informed that happiness has absolutely nothing to do with money or having a good credit score.  It’s all about love and nothing else matters.   I could live in a homeless shelter due to lack of money and still be really happy.   This theory did help me raise my credit debt ratio though.  I didn’t buy anything extravagant, because I didn’t have the credit or that kind of cash.  I loved everything , even hard times.  But the dissolution came when I realized that my kids were being teased in school for wearing bee bops (dollar store brand) when everyone else were wearing Nike or Reebocs.  Oh my . . . I thought,  If I don’t care about making a materialistic life for myself, I must at least attempt to make a balanced life for them.   Bing!   I had another monumental revolution!  Even though money (alone) didn’t buy happiness, a little of it certainly helped.  Besides, I could not bear to see those kids cry another day.  It gave me headaches.  Who can be happy with a headache.   And plus, I kind of missed buying a nice new black pump, every so often, anyway.  

After further reflection–especially since my balance method is now passé, I’m now wishing I would have stuck with the most evolutionary  discovery ever to hit the Earth.  It is truly the key to HARMONY, thus HAPPINESS.    If I had stuck with the concept I’m about to enlighten you about, I would not be in the disharmonized (is that a real word?  It is now.)  mood I’m now in.   But I thought I’d come a long way, baby . . .so I gave up on this momentous, sweeping discovery.  However, It is not hard to do.  In fact it’s really quite easy!  You don’t have to purchase a book, you don’t even have to change your thought patterns.  I’m going to let you on to this long forgotten SECRET today – right here on this posting!  FREE OF CHARGE!!!

Perhaps some of you can remember it . . .

I’m going back to being practicing  ENGOLI !  I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan, and never let him forget he’s a man.  . . Cause I’m a woman!  Enjoli!

Talk about HARMONY!   And to think it comes in a bottle and smells joyously too! Just spray your way to happiness!  Now, that’s bliss, paradise, nervana, untimate consciousness . . . oh my what’s the correct term for heaven now.  I think I may be confused.   Anywho . . .

Perhaps I’ll go home, have a nice meal with my family, chill with them for a bit, then get me a glass of wine and blog for a while-that’s my method for happiness and bliss, at least for today. 

Peace, Light Love,
