Wow, I can’t believe it is Thursday already. I have been rather quiet this week, working on transfering and updating my server based blog over at Reflections in the Mirror. I thought I’d try my hand at this to give me more options on what to do with blog; besides I’ve been paying for the server for two years and have not made good use of it. So, this week has been rather slow in communication with you dear hearts, but do know that you are all in my thoughts, my heart, and my soul.
Today I am thankful that:
1. Tomorrow is Friday, and the weekend is near!
2. I skipped my shower this morning; however, the water is still on so I can take a shower now. 🙂 (Visit Oracle of A Pearl)
3. I’m breathing!
4. I’m seeing!
5. I’m feeling!
Remember, we have so much for which we can be thankful. We talk, we walk, we see, we hear, we think and we inhale, we exhale, usually without effort! So, why is it we spend so much time dwelling on what we can’t do, don’t have, and what is going wrong? We can immediately recall negative experiences, people and circumstances without seeing we have the ability to walk away, get away, or make a change! Perhaps we have far too many options from which to choose! Perhaps we simply like complaining? I think if we spend just a little more time saying thanks for what we have, we won’t have so much time to dwell on what we lack. So, let’s activate the devine laws of abundance by being ever greatful for the allness of life. When the universe sees we are conscious of and greatful for what we have, it is buzzed to to shower us with more. Even when it seems the well is dry, we can affirm, "I can hardly wait to see the good that will come from this!"
Peace, Light and Love my kindred spirited sisters and brothers!

More on Colors. . .Just in Case You Didn’t Know. . . 🙂
Almost all visible colors can be obtained by the additive color mixing of three colors that are in widely spaced regions of the visible spectrum. If the three colors of light can be mixed to produce white, they are called primary colors and the standard additive primary colors are red, green and blue.
Two colors that produce white when added together are called complementary. The color complementary to a primary color is called a secondary color. The complementary or secondary colors for red, green and blue are cyan, magenta and yellow respectively. These three colors are often referred to as the subtractive primary colors. When the three are combined in subtractive color mixing, they produce black.

The following poem is submitted for the fabulous Friday 55, hosted by none other than the G-Man, AKA, Mr. Know it All. I’m about an hour late on my submission, but I hope someone still finds it beneficial on any day of the week. 🙂 Here ’tis…
Our life is a mirror reflecting our beliefs
Whether laced with joy or riddled with grief
We can only see what we believe real
What we don’t believe can’t be revealed
Change your belief system and you will see
Changed beliefs manifest into reality
Remove the false veil of impossibilities
Infuse your imagination into actualities

After seeing the news today and viewing the awful incident involving George Sodini who shot into a gym, murdering 3 woman and injuring 9 before killing himself, I have decided to begin posting 5 things I am greatful for on Thursdays. Sometimes in life, it helps to remind ourselves of what we are greatful for, and not put so much thought and reverence into that which we feel we lack. Expressing gratitude sends out a message to the universe that you are thankful, and you will draw to you that more to be thankful for, like a magnet. Don’t you give more to those who reflect thanks than those who reflect anguish when you you offer them something??? It’s one of the basic universal laws! Misery attracts misery and joy attracts joy!
There are so many things I am thankful for today. Reflecting back has made me realize some things I feel thankfull for changes each day, as some things about me change—while other things remain stagnant. I believe we can see how we are growing; what we are knowing, etc. by what are greatful for.
I urge you to list five things in your life for which you are thankful. You’d be surprized how much this list can tell you about yourself and your frame of mind.
Here’s my five for today:
I am thankful that I have people in my life who expect certain tings of and from me, but truly love me regardless…whether I live up to those expections or not…uncondiionally…and the feelings are mutual.
I am thankful to be gainfully employed and earn enough to take care of myself and my son, and to share with others every now and then too. 🙂
I am especially thankful that my mind is not tormented with anger, resentment, sadness and dispair that I see and read about so often.
I am thankful that my words might calm or inspire one person who may be feeling that anger, resentment, sadness, or dispair today.
I am thankful that I have grown to find enormous joy in the so called “little things” like a red rose, a butterfly, or the wind blowing through my hair. These “little things” are far bigger than anything man has ever created, and I often wonder why they are referred to as little things in the first place; as they are oh so grand!!!
I intended to limit my list to 5, but I have one more that I just have to list…I am thankful for the icecream sandwitch my Gee just brought over ot me!! ooom, yummy…:)
So, what are you greatful for today? I’d love to know.
Peace, Light and Love. . . Cordieb.
I can clear one’s mind to move beyond
Perceived misdeeds occuring in time now gone
I can free the mind of duplicitous locks
Evading spirit with mental blocks
Blocks and Locks preventing joy and pleasure
From freely roaming at their leasure
I hold the key to unshackle resentment
That tricks one’s mind out of contentment
I can relieve the body, mind and spirit
Of inequities which, in reality, presently, hold no merit
Weaved deception and rejection I shall unweave
Derived from Love; empathy I conceive
I can release one’s spirit of the heavy weight
That dims one’s soul; unravelled fate
I empower the anquished breath to exhale serenity
I inspire the soul to dance in bliss with eternity
A humble spirit; yet many find me hard to possess
With love, I discard all trespasses
Compassion brings forth my blessedness

Repost for myself; as mine own worst enemy seems to be creeping in more often, here lately…… Do you battle with your own worst enemy too? If so, remember your best friend is always there to comfort you.
Thought for The Day: Have you hugged yourself, today? ~CordieB
This poem was inspired by a very, very good friend and confidant, who often shares with us her own worst enemy and her own best friend over at Just Paisley and Why Paisley . Also, a fellow artist, TekkieBrek, planted the seed for this poem with his beautiful artwork, shown in reduced size below.
Mine own worst enemy and mine own best friend…
an infinate circle of sainthood and sin…
have always been with me; from beginning to end
through good times; through bad times; thick and thin
Both have tugged at my soul since God only knows when. . .
Mine own worst enemy screams words of hurt and dispair…
then my best friend comes to my aide with comfort and care
she hugs me ever so gently; caresses my soul
whilst mine own worst enemy digs a dark hole
into the core of my heart creating disbelief
in the beauty of life; thus making it hard to concieve…
a life worth living; a love worth giving…
then mine own best friend again comes along
she kisses my spirit; sings me a beautiful song
of love and joy; bright sunny skies
she reminds me of the falsness of the hurt, pain and lies…
that mine own worst enemy so often spews…
she opens the funny pages in the mist of bad news…
Yes, she awakens my spirit and rocks me to sleep
as I moan, as I tremble, as I lay, as I weep…
She caresses my head; massages my tired, aching feet
Sending mine own worst enemy into a silent retreat. . .
where mine own worst enemy gathers strength for another blow
launching me once more into a wreckless, dispairing low
Yet, I endure with patient vigilence for the love within
to give renewed strength, courage and wisdom to mine own best friend . . .

My creativity has been at a stall here of late. Perhaps it’s the zoids and pain killers I’ve been taking… In any event, I don’t seem to be able to focus long enough to write anything, so, I thought I’d share something I wrote some time ago. . . Blessings to all of you….

I can be cold as the bluest, hottest ice
And hot as the bluest, fiercest fire. . .
I’m a false reflection of a conceptional misconception
Whatever your limited or infinite mind’s desire
You listen to my loud, yet gentle vibration
You believe me fully with no hesitation . . .
You see me with all colors of the beautiful rainbow
Is that really all the colors? Will you ever know?
Only if you can let me go. . .
I’m young and younger, black and blacker
Smart and wise. A genius. A true catalytic cracker
Beautiful, and most beautiful – is there really such a thing?
Breath in the melody that I most wonderfully sing!
I can be red, yellow, or indigo blue
Although I’m real in essence, I’m never the truth,
I’m at your worst, completely false;
Incomplete at your best; a simple impulse.
I can be joyfully sorrowful and sorrowfully glee, too.
But, whatever I am, I’m always completely real to you.
Do you feel me! Do you get my point!
Do you smell my noise? Can you hear my funk!
Can you see my darkness? Can you touch my light!
Can you smell my vision? Can you taste my sight!
Can you smell the painful pleasure,
Can you taste the agony of the estasy?
No matter what, I’m always YOUR reality;
I am in you and you are in me.
If you change your perspective.
I’ll change mine– as your’s reflective.
I am oh so evil, and yet so kind
The world would be nothingness if I were blind.
But, maybe not-how dare I say?
And now I lay me down to pray . . .
I pray that you free me every then and now
From your dear self, for this I vow . . .
Will free you from hypocrisies
And all the false analogies. . .
From judgements, prejudices, anger and hatred …
These no longer exist, once I am emancipated.
My negation gives you insight, free and clear
Of a far away place that is yet so near
If you could release my blessed curse and damned grace
And move beyond object, time and space
For that brief moment in that sphere
You’ll sense a unity so crystal clear
Even beyond your limited, infinite imagination
Who am I, I am simply . . .
