Hope you enjoy this amazingly beautiful piece that lifts the spirit and refreshes the soul, and a poem I wrote inspired by it’s melody. Have a splendid day!
A soft, gentle breeze reminding me,
how everything is meant to be…
A heart of flesh that beats in time
that hears the song of joy divine…
A word that grounds the truth so strong
that sweetly whispers that I belong…
A hand that leads to every light
a love so pure it fills my sight…
A broken soul that long did roam
has finally found it’s way back home.

The morning sun is shining
twin jewels blazing in my eyes
as I bask in the light that reaches to me
I welcome the rays that pour from the skies.
The tree limbs sway in a gentle breeze
casting shadows that flitter across my face
I feel so alive, like I was meant to be
here and now in this shining place.
Bursts of exuberance emit showers from within
and a twinkling sound of joy proceeds from my heart
my body alive and warm with the power of love
I knew I was born for this from the start.
The smile that spreads across my glowing face
speaks the volumes I cannot conceive to say
I pray that heaven receives this blessing in return
this love that visits and energizes me today.
Let me not utter a discouraging word
or quench this radiant spirit that joins me
but like a river let the life flow out of my pores
I hear the spirit say ‘yes’ and I agree.
Soaking in the brilliance of the sun
I give thanks and welcome the god of life
happy are those who draw him inside
and for peace and happiness exchange their strife.

There comes a time when we as humans are tempted to judge and blame others for the very things we ourselves have done in our own past. Indeed we have all done it. It can be difficult to see where our own flaws originate and cloud our judgement of ourselves. When we judge in ignorance based on our ever changing mortal feelings, we are weakened and fail to see simple truth that ties us all together as human beings. The truth that we are all essentially the same in our heart of hearts, at the core of our eternal spirits. We are all of the same race, made from the same batch of flesh and share the same genetic make up. I believe that the laws of ‘Karma’ apply the same for the wise and the foolish. ‘Karma’ does not differentiate between us based on the knowledge inside our head. The role of this universal function is to aid in the distribution process of ’cause and effect’ and maintaining the balance in the universe. So, as for me I say, I will not rejoice in your folly. I’m still busy learning from my own mistakes. I’m also learning from yours. I will never be too proud to learn as long as I’m alive. I also know that some of these lessons won’t be easy, and some will break my heart. But I will continue to grow in intelligence and enlarge my capacity to empathize with the human race. I know that knowledge comes from an open mind and happiness comes from the ability to use it properly. So, in the end, I’m glad I can be whatever you need me to be for you, so long as the journey brings you back home.
Has anyone ever learned an especially painful lesson? Do you feel that you can, or have, gained more than you suffered or lost? What would you say to someone in the midst of a personal tribulation?
Thank you for reading and for any comments left.
Love and light, Celeste.
Today, give thanks for the gift of your life and for all the good things in it.
CHRISTMAS……. Yes, it’s that time of year again. A time where we realize another twelve months of our life have come and gone with lightening speed right before our very eyes. A time of reviewing the events of the past year in our minds and what we wish to accomplish in the next. A time where we as adults are caught up in memories of our childhood, reliving the joy and magic of the season seen through the eyes of a child. The time where we open our treasure chest of precious memories of Christmases past. When we were children, it seemed as though time practically stood still, holding us against our will in a never ending prison of waiting and wanting; (child like drama emphasized. LOL!) Every second was filled with impatience and anticipation whenever we looked forward to some special event. Our excitement was barely contained, brimming over the edges with that child like wonder we were born with. Now that I have my own son, I enjoy seeing those same markers of childhood, and the fierce joy in his eyes as he tears into his Christmas gifts like a little beast. Today as you spend time with your families, remember to send a thank you for the things you hold dear; for the ones you love, for the magic of the moment, for all the beautiful memories that can never be replaced, past and present, and for the greatest gift of all, the gift of life, the breath of your spirit. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL! : )

Today is a new day. The old is gone, and a new beginning is here. Lets lift our heads and be happy in it.
I consider it a privilege to live in a time where the technology is so advanced that we can reach across the globe with our feelings and ideas and whatever else we wish to do at the click of a button. What a great time to be alive! I am really excited over having the opportunity to fabricate my own little world through this blog, and I intend to do exactly that, using this juncture to create an atmosphere that appeals to people from all walks of life and faith. A place to share my thoughts and opinions, writings and poetry, and topic sensitive articles and stories of interest. I will also post inspirational material in the form of quotes, photos and music that are conducive to peace and healing. I welcome any questions and encourage the exchange of information through respectful and heartfelt discussions with others that have similar passions and experience. Differences in opinions are welcome, so long as they are given in the spirit of good will by which this blog will operate. A spirit of brotherhood, acceptance and open mindedness, and/or for the purpose of understanding and acquiring shared knowledge. I love the exchange of knowledge, learning new things and understanding a different point of view. I hope that all who embark here will feel that they have gained something of value, and take it with them or even make it a part of them where ever they may go.
