Love Allowed

DSC01958

I don’t know why some people feel so free to “dump” all their negative energy onto others.

I think it is important to take heed with others, because it’s so true that you never know what the next person is going through.

But I don’t know.

Perhaps some don’t realize what an impact energy has.

Perhaps some don’t perceive their energy as negative at all! (Which would be unfortunate).

Or perhaps some simply don’t care-“misery loves company…”

Well, when this happens I think it pays to be mindful as opposed to lowering ourselves to the same level.

Booker T. Washington said this amazing line. I quote, “I shall not let any man narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him.”

I love that. I love how he put that….

Narrow and degrade my soul.

When I think of this quote, I am able to imagine how ugly I can become by reacting in a similar way to a person who has offended me.

Another one I really like is, “Be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.”

I do not say that I am perfect by any means. In fact, I wouldn’t be writing this if there wasn’t a particular energy I felt was pulling me down.

But I hope to shake off that energy before the rest of my day.

Things are not all bad. We just have to force ourselves to remember. 🙂

Hope everyone has a love- and peace-filled day!

Namaste. Xx

A Word Through Song

Hage

 All the storms and oceans
All the sheltering sky
All this earth and she and I

Wait, until it happens
Wait, the moment will come
Wait, but all those are already one

And she asks me, how many sunrises
Will we watch from start to finish
How many will we witness?

And my answers are only ever surmises
Maybe a handful of times
Before the next life, before the next life

Here, we stop beneath the leaves
Here, a moment to stay
Here, a gift of pale green color, here above her

And she asks me, how many sunrises
Will we watch from start to finish
How many will we witness?

And my answers are only ever surmises
Maybe a handful of times
Before the next life

A kiss, a prayer, a laugh, a song
She won’t try to tell me, what’s right from wrong
A song, a laugh, a prayer, a kiss
She won’t try to tell me, I need more than this

All my answers, all my surmises
Will never do it justice
She’ll just have to trust it

Wait here, ’til the sun rises
Watch from start to finish
No one as our witness
With no one as our witness

-“Hymn”
