It's about... reaching some new goals in my life... more peace than before..
About staying "Centered" in the face of adversity (perceived.) Taking time off from my responsibilities to myself... facing the aging process and its ability to move on at any cost. Lucky to have family, friends, a great dog... love in many ways! This brief vacation is to digest all that has happened, this past year, and redirect toward the future... I should be able to move on after Memorial Day (and a Memorial to the past - noted)
.....appropriate to the Full Moon as it passes by..........
"Sky is womb and she's the moon"
I am my mother's only one It's enough I wear my garment so it shows Now you know Only love is all maroon Gluey feathers on a flume Sky is womb and she's the moon I am my mother on the wall, with us all I move in water, shore to shore Nothing's more Only love is all maroon Lapping lakes like leary loons Leaving rope burns Reddish ruse Only love is all maroon Gluey feathers on a flume Sky is womb and she's the moon
We all wander through the days, weeks and years - judging what we have with what we want... and probably don't consider what we need. Staying centered is a learned attitude and mental state that allows us to have everything we need to be happy and prosper. No need to worry about Health, money, friendship and love - what comes is what is needed - and it never fails to be there - what is needed.
It is important to remember to "feel" this statement - in order to remain "centered":
I accept the responsibility for my life.
I accept responsibility for my Success or Failure
From now on I will not blame anyone or anything else for the things that happen to me and the things that I do. I alone am in control of my life - Past, Present and future - I am in control of my Destiny!
Some call this "Growing Up" - finally.......
If you can't stay "centered" you're fucked!
what comes easy in life - means nothing
What we have overcome in our lives is everything! My vacation continues.................................................
