Category: Learning To Fly
One thing that I learned in my trek out west to see my birth mother is that I was the one who separated us. I would not give her an inch. At ten or so, I had to keep my sanity stable within myself because I knew that no one out there was going to take care of me. Four hundred Volkswagen Beetles … Read More Love That Comes in Times of Trauma
NOW, in the moment, the present, I had defined it in 2014 as No illusion, All-encompassing, the W is to me, an upside down M to bring from heaven Christ’s Millenial Reign that I had been taught throughout my Christian years. I am only now (18 years later) reading The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. This book is adding dimension and confirmation of … Read More The View From Where I Stand Now
When I question if I am in the right place and did I follow the Spirit’s direction I simply need to look out my window at the three trees, double my arm-width, that stand as sentinels and give me courage. My feet step in the soft, plush grasses behind the small parking lot and I feel the breeze and admire the well-kept garden in … Read More Control Tower, We Have Landed… 😉
I have found something that allows me to be in the world and not be of it. Simply stated it is Christ. Not the cross, the punishment, and the scales of justice that you might envision if you have listened to people who consider themselves Christians or watched Hollywood depictions. I am speaking of Christ, the whole body of humanity, and all that it … Read More I Want To Share What Brings Me Joy
“I started watching the Netflix original “Heartland” while I was in the state of Washington. I have always loved horses. The mountains, gorgeous trees, etc. I can pretend I am there or a part of it somewhere in my brain and it brings me comfort. I have not been familiar with horses really throughout my life. Mainly because I feared their size. I had … Read More It Has Helped Me Transition
A ghost in an environment that flows around me. This is how I feel. I stand here as one identity and watch an incredible dance of life, destructive life, all around. It seeped into my consciousness a bit at a time. I had thought maybe it was only our family. Turns out that the same oddities that I observed in my home of origin … Read More So Sweet When Spirit Reveals Why You Are Where You Are Part Two
2007, that is when I noticed the attention of an older man at the singles group I attended. His attention was special and loving. He was a warm, big-hearted family man, whose loving wife had passed several years before. We had chats and visits through email and on the phone. He touched my heart in a special way. A family is something that seemed … Read More Strange Things Happen In This World
We Are The Christ, We Are the Salvation of The Son There is no other way to look at the doctrine of Christianity than this. We are not separated, we are a whole. We cannot be isolated, no matter how alone we may feel. Ego is threatened by the coming of Christ. Each ego believes in separation and death. There is neither. The misunderstood … Read More We Are The Christ, We Are the Salvation of The Son
No one takes away our freedoms, we believe it is possible…and so it is. Or seems to be. Do not be confused by what appears real in this world. You come from a higher place and are gently awakening to who you truly are. Praises and gratitude to our Creator. It may be through initially acknowledging Him outside ourselves that we find Him and … Read More Independence: Freedom from bondage inside or out.
I have been a Mormon for a long time. I buy in bulk and stock up on all the necessities. As a 60 plus woman who lives alone, I still hoard, as my daughter mentioned after helping clear my apartment (chuckle), when I went to the state of Washington to be near my mother whom I had been told was dying. I had never … Read More Washington and Back
I feel a bit lost. I admit that. Do I stay in Washington state, near my mother and some siblings who have decided my visiting mom is detrimental to her welfare or do I return to the Midwest and focus on my writing while being able to see six of eighteen grandchildren and 1 of 4 great-grandchildren? As a homeless person of the past … Read More I Believe It Is Okay To Feel Lost Sometimes
Being homeless sucks! just sayin….. Personally, I do not believe that homelessness is caused by economics, drugs, or such things though I agree that it would seem so on the surface and that you can point to those things in individual cases….. rather, I believe that homelessness is caused by the lack of human engagement…the inability for humanity to see one another, more importantly, … Read More Homelessness Sucks!
