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

pic22913

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…

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

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……

LET IT GO!!!

LET IT GO!!!

LET IT GO!!!

LET IT GO!!!

LET IT GO!!!

LET IT GO!!!
