But I Meant Well.

October 24, 2019

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

English proverb

How many times have you heard someone say, but I meant well. As a parent, you always want the best for your children and family right? If you own a business, you always want to make the best decisions for your employees, right? In government, the elected officials always want to do their best for the people, right? In corporations, they want to do and be their best for their stake holders and provide quality products and or service, right?

 

I could go on and on listing ways that we all start out with good intentions, however if you do not fully understand what the impact will be, your intentions will backfire and turn into something that is corrupt, hurtful, harmful, and even dangerous. Your intentions must be grounded in spiritual law and sound wisdom. Every intention must be a conscious choose for the greater good of all. The world is in a state of turmoil and upheaval because of intentions based on greed, and the believe that you and I are separate. Families try to protect themselves or make choices based on

 

ignorance. This can be very harmful, even though your intentions weren’t meant to be. Our intentions must be based in love. They must be for the greater good. Things are in chaos due to the lack of understanding, consciousness, compassion and believing that nature is outside of us.

True good intentions, are paved with a holistic approach. It is the golden rule. What we do to one, we do to all. Your intentions are powerful. Your impact is even more powerful. Find kindness, strength, love, compassion, beauty, and virtues of grace in your heart to open yourself to goodness.

 

Good intentions come from the heart, not from the head.

Being of service and keeping yourself humble will be sure fire way to guard against good intentions turning toward hell. Keep the journey onward and upward.

 

 


Cry Baby Cry

October 25, 2018

 

When you hold back your tears, you only amplify the emotions your body is trying to release through crying.

Source Unknown

 

I just recently came back home from visiting my daughter out in Seattle Washington. What a beautiful part of the country! We went camping in her tiny RV home Big Foot.

We explored Olympic National Park and the coastal region. It was pure bliss to be engulfed by nature. After we settled back to our vacation home overlooking Mount Rainier. The view was absolutely spectacular.

Every morning I woke up to the howling of wolves that were at a wildlife preserve near by and this majestic mountain. I witnessed an eagle soar down to catch a fish and an otter who graced us with her presence now and again. It was truly magical. I had tears of joy being present to all natures bounty.

However, I also had tears of sorrow, hurt and emotional pain over an encounter my daughter and I had. Some old feelings and wounds were brought up that really felt awful. We both felt the separation and disconnect from our different interpretation of an event.  My eyes filled with tears over this.  Crying is a healthy release of emotions. It releases stress and actually makes you feel better afterwards.  My baby girl is so strong, independent and and a beautiful free spirit. After expressing my hurt to her and letting her know what I was feeling, both our hearts expanded. The love poured open and tears of joy now gushed out.

You see, when you are open and honest with your feelings and able to communicate how you feel in a healthy way, you will uplift the pain and emotional bondage that keeps you blocked from the love you have to give and the love that is there for you to receive.

So if you feel like crying, let it out!

 


Do You Want to Know a Secret?

May 10, 2018

“Nature yields her most profound secrets to the person who is determined to uncover them.”         Napoleon Hill

I love older classic movies from the 1940-1950’s. I find the acting and stories so compelling. There were no special effects to entertain you, so the dialog had to be intriguing, intelligent and emotionally gripping. There was’t even any color to enhance the scenes so using shadows and playing with angles left much to your imagination.

One movie I watch last week was Bird Man of Alcatraz, a true story based on the life of  Robert Franklin Stroud. He was incarcerated for 54 years of his life with 43 of those years in solitary confinement. In that time he became a respected ornithologist (bird expert) and  educated himself in many subjects.

It made me think of what we are capable of when we join forces with this universal intelligence. We don’t have to go to solitary confinement to uncover our  talents and gifts, but we do need to sacrifice something of a lower nature for a higher one.

When we go into the solitude of our minds, nature will begin to reveal her secrets to you too!

Are you ready for a revaluation?

 

 


Once Upon a Time

September 29, 2015

knowledge-key-to-success-written-vintage-old-book-34949738Once Upon a time, people relied on old knowledge of living off the land rather than shops, for their source of food, clothing and other such necessities.  Our modern world has evolved out of this ancient one. Unfortunately the course we took as a whole, has separated nature out of the equation. Most people have forgotten the old ways. Knowledge is the key to success, and nature is the key to knowledge. When you study nature, all the mysteries of life reveal themselves. All the answers are hidden in the very thing that we over look. Even a single blade of grass has knowledge in it. The natural laws of the universe have been given to us to explore, and live in harmony with. This is our play ground. So why would we want to  decimate our world? I believe that the only reason is, that we forgot about the old knowledge. This is the same reason why there is so much addiction, distraction, depression, and disease. Because we separated from the truth of who we are. We are creators, here to create our best life. To manifest our deep desires, we must connect with nature and the old knowledge.When we become whole in body, mind and spirit, we will remember who we really are. So let’s go back and read the story. Once upon a time when we were all connected.


Nature Deficit Disorder

November 18, 2014

nature deficit disorderIf you want to think clearer and feel better, spend some time in nature. The plant world holds the key to unlocking our confusion and troubles. It soothes our soul and provides life-giving oxygen for us to breath. I once owned and operated a horticultural business. I would install and maintain plants in homes and office’s. These plants brought the outside world inside and helped people become calmer, more productive and healthier. People need the connection with nature. In our technological world where many people sit in an office or indoors for most of the day never being exposed to any nature, a condition called nature dfecit disorder occurs. We become disconnected. Nature deficit disorder also is the disconnect from our food supply, our wanting to irraticate all insects, and anything that separates us from the natural world. When we learn to reconnect and live in harmony with our natural world, balance will be restored. So I invite you to spend some time in nature and reconnect with our life giving planet earth.


Destiny Calls

July 1, 2014

characterI recently came across an article, and in it was a quote from George Washington Carver. This is the man who is known for inventing peanut butter. This was a man of character. His quote was “When you love something enough, it will speak to you.” He loved botany. He devoted his life to it and the plant world spoke to him. The character of this man become his destiny. George Washington Carver, actually turned down a position where he was offered $100.000 a year. That would be equivalent to over a $1,000.000 today. His character was so great, that he refused to accept money for the gifts he said God gave him. He invented crop rotation and many other helpful techniques that have saved time and helped the world. We should all take a lesson from this great man of character. Love nature and allow it to speak to us.


Commune with Nature

March 11, 2014

garden of eden

Nature is always speaking to us in quite whispers.  Can we become silent enough to hear her? She reveals secrets of life that are too subtle to pick up on if we are busy in thought.  When we calm our minds and bodies, we can then hear the voice of nature. We can then commune with the spirits of the plant world. The flowers, trees, vines and all floras have properties and energies that can heal us or harm us. The more we become familiar with them, the more we can understand and appreciate life with all its diversities. Just by observing its habitat, we are able to discover its qualities. Plants have amazing medical usages. Right in our own backyards we a pharmacopeia at our disposal. If we begin to tend our oxygen producing plants with love and respect, they will provide us with a harvest of knowledge and healing. We are a part of nature. Nature is a part of us. The more we distance our self from her, the farther away we get from our true essence. Spend some time in nature. Become silent and listen. The garden of Eden is always near.
