Simple Musings

Life as it is

Most of us spend too much time "being someone" instead of simply being. I have discovered that being is the preferred path. An authentic spirit is one that is in tune with reality. Intentional, conscious living is not always easy, but is honest and honorable.

Recognizing reality was born in each of us, but somewhere along the way we have been reprogrammed to hide feelings, distrust instincts, follow a trampled and sometimes ugly path. We cannot follow someone else's dream because eventually resentent will creep inside and smoulder until we cannot see through the smoke. Being what and who we are will take us down a new and genuine trail. The word trail seems to indicate adventure. There are new experiences and discoveries on either side.

Individuals have the privilage of being true to themselves, but not to the detriment of other beings. Kindness and compassion should be the rule. The earth should be better for our having been there.

This is my journey....far from perfection, but with good intentions.

    A lovely opening statement for your blog!

    We have found ours to be much like journaling, and while others say it inspires them, it's also a daily reminder to us of our preffered path, and helps to keep us focused.
