Good Feelings

The Emperors New Clothes and The Pied Piper of Hamelin are wonderful stories to read on a day like this. Yes we have blue skies in Kentucky this morning and the temperature is just below the freezing of water.
I feel great but mom is still under the weather with her stomach. I saw her water bottle by her bedside and I asked, "Is that was the same water bottle you drank of two days ago?" and she said, "Yes." I said no more but brought her a cup of tea and hoped she felt better today.
We wanted to go to town today and spend my "Gift Card" but that can wait until she feels better. She wanted a Blue Ray Player for Christmas.
My mother could sing and I am tone deaf but I can spread good cheer and tell folks that they are living on god's greatest gift, The Planet Earth our "Garden of Eden".
The fact that we have flaws makes us better each day we survive on the planet, that imperfection inspires greatness and moves us closer to perfection. We have not been able to reproduce our self no other way other than by love and the union of our being.
I know that feeling called love and it brings me to tears of happiness when visions before me give me the time to understand that feeling.
Wanting is our greatest sin and it dooms our days. Just be as you are.
Points of view

I have seen a different religious point of view from just about every person that I have ever meet.
Just about every point of view speaks of peace and good behavior toward their fellow man with a few exceptions.
How can I possibly tell each person that their view is wrong when in their heart their view is correct?
If I listened to their view point, I or we would come to an understanding that their view is correct and realize that we were saying the same thing only using different nouns and verbs to explain the same things.
If their view is correct and my point of view is correct then that tells me that we are all right in our views about life and that I have failed to understand their viewpoint in the past.
So I must see each person as being alive with a viewpoint that is correct and to the point.
If that is correct then I must see each of us as being an image of god and understand their point of view as the same as mine.
This space that I occupy is very grand and I believe that each one of us occupies the same grand place.
This implies that all matter as being in the image of god.

"Matter: Something that occupies space and can be perceived by one or more senses;
a physical body, a physical substance, or the universe as a whole."

So must I worship the ground that each one of us occupies?
I guess if you were standing in front of me I would have too?
Whatever I like the idea that each one of us is correct in our points of view.
Those &These
We would all just love to form our own personal group of friends.
Choose who fulfills our needs and place them on our invited list.
Of course we would have to completely ignore the idea of equality between women and men, rich and poor, smart and ignorant, thin or fat, meat lovers and meat haters, no gods and lots a gods.
And of course everyone else that falls in-between those lines like Doves and Hawks.
This morning is clear and bright.
There is a cloud cover toward the north and a clear sky to the south.
The sun is coming between the two variations of the early morning.
The sun is reflected in the morning water.
Turbines can be heard off in the distance.
Those sounds have traveled across the water from a great distance.
It is nice and I feel good about myself.
My body is heavy but my health is good.
Complicated matters and simplicity adorn my environment.

If I sat on a mat in a ritual art form, clearing my mind of unneeded clutter, placing my being onto another level of spiritual wealth could it compare with the description above about being.
My thought and body says it the same and different at the same time. Being aware of the space we occupy places us well in the space provided by life. Remember the Quote "Seeing is believing". We have read a million words that describe the truth about our environment and we as individuals add our own statements to the lengthening list of cliche's that enlighten our lives.
We read poetry and sometimes a great novel. History and biographies pass along our paths.
Sometimes we meet a human that is a novel, a human story, a biography, and a person with a life that is a story.
Could it be that each one of us is indeed that great novel?
We as individuals are cloaked in suspense and drama, veiled in insecurities and peaceful oblivion.
We share what all great writers write about, we carry our novels in our souls as we walk into that great storeroom of good words.
This is a nice thought.

  1. You're full of nice pleasant thoughts today. It's a Good Morning for all of us today except partially for Laurel who is sick, but it's still good for her because she has seen the New Day.
