Freedom Flows

Being in a cage is just a metaphor for how one is being when they loose track of their own life.

There is no mystery here.

Having your own micro-business could be a way to more flow.

Starting a business might be the wrong place to work.

Personal development is another area for flow.

Deep thinking is also a good idea.

Thinking it through will take some practice.

There is no time like the present to get on with a better life.

Better work, better lifestyle and a better life.

Slow down and let your freedom be defined by you for your own good.

Then try to decide what is your next best step.

If you can do it now or as much as you can each day but try not to procrastinate or stop your flow of freedom.

People work hard to be free everyday.

We are never alone because it is a universal truth.

Design the picture you see as freedom and work towards making it happen in your life.

Life Isn’t Too Complicated, I Am

The pain of my life is hard to define.

One day it is a combination of new ideas, old information and people.

The next it is my take on working out my problems with people places and things.

In today’s fast paced environment, I am loosing my ability to change and adapt.

I’ve listened to the minimalist, the spiritual guru and the rest.

I am doing good with my factors: aging, disease and overall health.

I am working on work, exercise and good orderly direction.

I am still trying to accept whomever or whatever.

I can’t always be on top of it all.

There will always be some ups and downs.

Processed Spirituality (Spiritual Junk Food)

Empty affirmations, multiple mantrums, no practice, no peace of mind…

With all the technology, and multiple distractions from all the devices, no wonder there is a lack of commitment to any meaningful path or way to be grounded and experience actual spiritual growth.

The cellular phone is meant to be wired into our lifestyle and for all intensive purposes addictive and permanently altering our ability to become “awakened” or self-actualized by a healthy discovery of who we are.

Peace and quite are not wanted or even soothing, without constant access we can not control our increasing need for constant stimulation.

Are we paying attention to our family and relationships? Work?, Do we have hobbies?

Do we even care about sleep, exercise and eating balanced meals?

Where is our purpose and direction?

There is the constant need for work to acquire the ‘modern lifestyle’.

Do we even know how to rest anymore?

Plant Therapy

Abele Green is my 15 year old Easter Lilly that needs a haircut.

She gets equal work for equal pay.

I have the responsibility to water, weed and repot her.

She keeps me honest and freshens up my place.

A reminder of my friendship with my mother, I try to treat her with TLC…

Earth Day Canada

A memory from September 11, 1970

As a young boy my elders gave me a lesson on why not vandalize a tree.

I eventually learned about ecology, inner tidal zones, and naturalism.

I did a lot of tree planting and forest fire fighting as a young man.

I spend a lot of time outdoors: walking, hiking and biking.

I try to recycle, recover and reuse.

All these activities are still practiced across the country.

Me and My Gallbladder

A gallstone wedged in the liver or stuck in a canal that runs between it and the gallbladder…

Huge pain, from a bundle of nerves, it radiates under the shoulder blade or is it in front by the solar plexus?

The hot pain is constant for hours, finally a change, a gag reflex, heaving and up comes everything in the stomach.

6 hours in the emergency to get a bed and a blood check.

The doc sends me home, in the wee hours of the morning.

Slash 15 years later, I check my progress.

Still have gallstones, according to the ultrasound and doctor.

I am keeping a healthy diet:  much more veggie.

Is my gallbladder worth enduring all the pain?

It’s not bad when I eat right.

And I suffer a little in the late night and wee hours, but I am staying on track with proper diet, exercise and lifestyle.

My gallbladder reminds me what is important.

And if I loose it someday, it will because of an infection, or a good medical reason, not because of a lack of trying.

I love to journal,write and walk,think, meditate and become peaceful

I want to teach and become a student in my life.

What can I do about it: journal, read, write, blog, write a book and study to do it.

Most of the time I am curious about meditation.

Most of the time I practice being calm and experience peacefulness.

I love to learn and practice how to do all of it.

I believe that is what my book will be all about.

This is my journey what will be yours?
