War and Peace




Peace




Conflict
Young man soldier you have been tricked
Pulled blindly into this bloody conflict
Your mind plays games of judgment
As you stand upon the desert sands still and poignant
As the sky is blackened with remorseless demons
Young man soldier reflects on home and loved ones
As you enter and tread carefully towards the battlefield
Your hands washed with blood and your heart concealed
Will you ever learn to stop the fight
Too late the aftermath, the devastated bombsite
Of blood and limbs and dead man's skin
That life is so cheap, we trade-in to win
Soldier know that these are your brothers in trouble
That lay weeping and broken beneath the rubble
The desert sand will blow and drift, burn your eyes
Remember the killing of one another God despise
Reflect - how you neglected to respect life and love
As you dig the grave encircled by the mourning dove
We pray for your safe return
And hope that one day you will learn.
Where have all the flowers gone long time ago.
Where have all the flowers gone
Young girls picked them everyone.
When will they ever learn .......

Just Forgot!




Who am I, that have walked the winding distance
Following the ancient words, with given assistance
Searching for the doorway to the Divine's brilliant light
Learning to fly upon the wind like a kite in flight
Who am I, that have sat alone in a darkened room
Withering and weakening in my own created tomb
Shrouded with illusions, so it appears
Running a river of poignant saline tears
It was my great hope and love for you
Your silken hand that pulled me through
All recollection was lost and I was filled with fear
I just forgot for moment that you are always here


I guess there are times when we forget the Power that is within us IS ALWAYS HERE.

Hugs for everyone.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. - John Fitzgerald Kennedy

We win half the battle when we make up our minds to take the world as we find it, including the thorns - Orisen S. Marden


Where there is no hope in the future, there is no power in the present. - John Maxwell

Freedom



A story I heard today ... about 3 lions that had been kept in cages for many years ... working in a circus. Today through the help of human beings they were rescued ... returned to a sanctury in South Africa and are now able to to live their life in freedom ... BORN FREE
Free to roam the tall grasses of the sanctury and bask in the sun.
They had forgotten what freedom was like.

Have we ourselves forgotten what freedom is like?

Take the billionaire ... with money enough to buy anything, go anywhere, do anything ...
if they do not feel free ... is that freedom ?
They build walls to keep others out, and hire guards to watch their money and possessions, always imprisoned by the fear that others will take what they have, will not love them for themselves, will want ... do they not imprison themselves ?
And, it is not to say that having money is wrong, just that ... here, with what brings total ability on this world ... if they do not feel free, then nothing will buy them freedom
even for them ... freedom must be ... a choice ... not an attainment.
Perhaps the greatest freedom, then, is the freedom to feel free :)
And, the freedom to love.


Realization in your ability
butterfly on the breeze
born to feel free
Please feel free to leave a comment on what freedom means to you.
A whisper says that one should ... Make a wonderful day ... for it is only oneself that can choose to do so.
MAKE A WONDERFUL DAY ... EVERYDAY AND IN DOING SO THOSE AROUND YOU SHALL SHARE YOUR JOY.
Quotes on Freedom.
Albert Einstein:
All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man's life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom.
You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, butyou will never imprison my mind. -Mahatma Gandhi-
Man is free at the moment he wishes to be. -Voltaire-
Dwight D. Eisenhower:
We seek peace, knowing that peace is the climate of freedom.
an extract from Conversations with God Bk1
I truly want what you truly want ... nothing different and nothing more. Don't you see that is My greatest gift to you?
If I wanted for you something other than what you want for you, and then went os far as to cause you to have it, where is your free choice? How can you be a creative being if I am dictating what you shall be, do and have? My joy is in you FREEDOM, not your compliance.

Hills of Love















Running barefoot through the glen, passing the mercury rippling streams
A courteous audience of amethyst heathers, whisper in their dreams
Two loving souls embrace in a whirlwind, of a rose fragrant breeze
Pursuing and catching the enchantment, of falling autumn leaves
Breathless as they stand in twisted woodland, searching for the truth
Encapsulated in their eternal and ghostly spiritual youth
Reflections of light glimmer and shimmer, on the water neath the moon
Cocooned in delicate gossamer in deepest affection, united they swoon
Beings intoxicated by Divine grace, from within and the above
In their sobriety drowning upon the ocean of His ecstatic Love

quotes:Love, like a river, will cut a new path whenever it meets an obstacle.- Crystal Middlemas

There is only one happiness in life,to love and be loved.- George SandAlbert

Einstein:Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love. :o)

Alfred Tennyson:

I hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
