Sharing Life

Well I am away for work again which is a necessary part of my job that I am grateful to have. However it gets me thinking as it normally does that life is so much better wheb it is shared sure we share a lot of negatives with each other but do we also share the joys. Sure a problem shared is a problem halfed but I have also found that a joy shared is a joy multiplied. Do you share your triumphs, your success, your passion and the gems in life that you have found?  I know when I am hiking solo and find a beautiful place I can’t wait to share it and drag my girlfriend out to experience it. To be a true family blood or otger I beilive you have to share life not just a roof.  I see it in the relationship my Aunt Paddy has with her children they share a lot together and it is obvious by the joy I see one thier faces when they get together. I can hear it now “but I have nobody to share with” I have felt that way myself in the past.  Try first by sharing a smile with somone walking by, share kife with a coworker, share your home with a pet (rescues please) just share life and if you do it enough trust me you will have peple to share it with.

What joy will you share today?

Calling His Kids Home

We have limited time on this earth, there is only so much time before our job in thos lifetime is done and we are called home. I don’t know why some are called home way sooner than others just that thier job during this go around is done.  This is why I feel it is important to be good to people and let them know how you feel about them while they are here. Everyday is a gift given to us try not to step on anyone else’s present.

Life

Life has amazing twist and turns 10 or even 5 years ago I would have never pictured myself where I am today.  Most of the stuff I was worried about never happened and the things that did I never saw coming.  Some of the worst things that happened to me over that time turned out to be the best and some of the best turned out to be the worst.  Which lets me know I don’t always know what I want or need in the long run.  All the worrying in the world never got me anywhere but lost to all the beauty that was around me.  Today I try to keep that in mind to bring the light of mindfulness to every moment, help others where I can and try to spread a wave of smiles wherever I go.  It doesn’t always work out that way but I try and if it doesn’t work out there is always tomorrow.  Being love and spreading peace is what its all about these days and trying to extend that to everyone I come across isn’t always easy but always worth it.  When I flex the love muscle(keep it clean) it gets stronger and my smile gets brighter.  When I was being a spiteful person in my youth full of anger and hate I thought I was strong and in control.  Showing love and forgiveness is where real strength comes in today and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Spring Foward

Spring is a great time of year I love seeing things come back to life and for me it is a time of action.  Winter is a time of building energy and reflecting on where we have been but the energy of spring always urges me to move forward.  Lately I have been diving deep into meditation and really expanding my spiritual life yet again.  The people around me are always an inspiration moving forward in all aspects of life weather its at the gym, on the hiking trail, at work or in their relationships.  I love switching gears and I tend to get into reading mode when I am doing my spiritual practice and it sometimes becomes less of a practice.  One thing I was shown after years of filling my self with spiritual/religious knowledge that a little practice would go a lot further and I have found this to be absolutely true in my life and the impact it has on others.  I try to keep reminders of where I am going all over the place to keep me on track.  My spiritual literature is staged on my night stands, my mala is around my neck and some kirtan is on my radio.  Whatever you are doing keep your motivation close at hand ever reminding you of what you are working towards but don’t forget to enjoy the journey as well.
