Thoughts for today, #371 …. “Spiritual Growth …. “!!


Growth

~~April 25, 2016~~ 

SPIRITUAL GROWTH

As I’ve aged and a retired, I’ve noticed that as days go by, I want/need less things.

I have enough with what I the material things I possess.

I’ve noticed that I don’t want any more.

Agree, “more freedom, less stuff”.

Minimalist living is counter-cultural

It is contrary to every advertisement we have ever seen because we live in a society that prides itself on the accumulation of possessions.

But there is more joy to be found owning less than can be found pursuing more.

Consider just some of the benefits of living with fewer possessions.

A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. “Proud 100% and more …. “!!

PROUD PUERTO RICAN

You can take a Puerto Rican out of the Island … for a myriad of reasons.

But you can never take the Puerto Rican out of the body heart, mind, soul, memories, DNA.

It’s with you from the day you are born, to the day you die.

REMINDS ME OF MY PARENTS

I was the fifth of seven children.

Of all of us, only two made it to adulthood.

My parents were married for 64 years.

It wasn’t perfect but it was an accomplishment.

My Mom developed Alzheimer’s and was bedridden for 10 years before crossing over. My Dad never left her side.

My Dad passed on several years after my Mom.

This is how I picture them now.

Love you and miss you much.

The void is always there.

I wish …… if only!

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

At the end of the day … “Kevin Kern: “Through Your Eyes”!!

THROUGH YOUR EYES

So much beauty can be seen through your eyes.

So much beauty can be seen in the eyes.

The eyes are the windows to the soul.

This song is so soothing.

It touches the soul and takes away feelings of stress and negativity.

Peace of mind, peace of the spirit … incredible to feel.

Hope you enjoy it.

Kevin Kern is one of my favorite New Age musicians.

EYES

Sometimes a miraculous thing happens.

The body ages,
And the skin crinkles like an old plastic bag.
And even though the body fades, the soul still fights on.
And the soul comes through the eyes.
And the most crinkled, faded old people will have the deepest eyes.

Sometimes deeper than any others.

Their soul comes through their eyes and draws everything in.
They glow with a brilliance earned over many years,
And even though the body withers, the eyes stay bright.

Thoughts for today, #216 …. “Strength and Confidence … always within”!!


OutInside

~~August 20, 2915~~

TRUST YOUR JOURNEY

STRENGTH WITHIN

Strength is not always,
Muscle and brawn,
But the feelings you have inside.

Strength is not just one thing,
But twenty things wrapped in one.
It is the strength of the mind,
Heart, and soul.
Not just the vanity,
We have all longed for.

When you understand strength,
As more than just brute,
Then you have truly become strong.
For power is obtained,
Through leadership and integrity,
Not the measure of your height and weight.

The smallest of silhouettes,
Can be mightier than giants,
With the true strength
Of the mind, body, and spirit.

Thoughts for today, #192 …. “A gift that touches the Soul”!!


MusicS

~~July 3, 2015~~ 

MUSIC

Music brings joy,
to all of our hearts,
It’s one of those,
emotional arts.

Sounds of melodies,
that we truly adore,
Brings us pure pleasure,
as our spirits do soar.

Music that touches us,
we can’t help but smile,
We’re free to choose,
genre or style.

Music clearly,
enlightens our days,
Makes us happy,
in so many ways.

Something to think about …. “Our thoughts are very powerful”!!


Toughts

~~May 10, 2015~~ 

I know there’s a typo in the graphic. But you get the meaning in spite of it. When I read the thought and found the article below, I saw myself in this exact position. Yes, I’m one of the ones nodding my head!

And this is all consuming, doesn’t lead anywhere, doesn’t accomplish anything but make like miserable. It’s like a dog chasing his tail.

I can tell you how hard it is .. in spite of years of counseling, it’s been a very hard pattern to brake. It’s recurring, persistent, irritating and almost paralyzing.

What Consumes Your Mind, Controls Your Life

DR. KARIN

What you decide to obsess over in your mind, ruminating … reviewing … rewinding … will ultimately be what controls you.

And unless you change your mind – and change the channels – you will continue to see the frustrating flicker of that thing, that face, that obsession because you can’t seem to move past whatever it is that has a hold on you.

If you are nodding your head, you have been there – or you are there right now. You know what focus has taken control of your thoughts, your dreams and your decisions. And deep down, you know that you know that you know that you need to find a way to push it away … push it out of the control tower of your mind.

You feel your energy being depleted and your time being sucked away, but for some reason you have held on. And it just might be the biggest secret you are carrying around. When you are honest with yourself, however, you know none of it is good for you at all. Not one bit. In fact, it is hurting you time after time after time.

It is taking over your heart, hijacking your once vibrant mind and eclipsing the creative energy that used to flow from your soul. And likely someone close to you has said, “Do you realize how much time you spend talking about that/him/her/them?”

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”

To start the day …. #MyBeautifulMom!!


FamMami

~~May 10, 2015~~ 

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY, MOM

My mother had me when she was forty years old. I wasn’t a late child, I was one in a “string” of seven. Of those seven, she was able to carry only four to term. Of those four, she lost one the day after he was born and she lost another one 4 days before he turned one. The other three were miscarriages.

My Mother was a very strong woman. She was born in Puerto Rico in 1910 …. a time when there was unrest during the establishment of the American presence in the Island and all that it entailed.

She herself lost her Mom at the tender age of nine. She was the only girl in a family of three boys and a brother from another mother (sadly called “bastard” at that time).

From her stories, she was raised by her godmother, a lady who seemed to be quite the disciplinarian and maybe abusive when using current terms.

In spite of it all, she went to school and college. She became an outstanding teacher. She moved to New York City in the early 1930’s … and met my Father there. They were married in 1934 and remained together for 64 years.

She lived a full life. Stopped working as a teacher when she had me. “I will always be a teacher”, she used to say. She traveled to South America, on her own, for trips related to a subject dear to her heart: “Cooperativismo”. She was a staunch Catholic, very active in her church. She taught Spanish to all the American priests who arrived. She was an incredible seamstress and made beautiful pieces for the church’s altar and huge “estandartes” to be carried during the religious processions.

To top it all, she took excellent care of her husband and the two children she had: my older brother (first born) and me.

When she was 47, she underwent open-heart surgery (1957) …. a big deal back then. She made medical history by being the first open-heart surgery done in a private hospital in Puerto Rico.

In 1989, changes started surfacing that marked the beginning of the end. She developed progressive memory loss, became bedridden, regressed slowly in an almost childlike state (diapers, bottle feedings, all around care). The last ten years of her life went by so fast. She passed on at the age of 89 only remembering the name of the love of her life: my Dad: Pepo.

I haven’t been table to tell her how beautiful she is since then.

MOM, TODAY I TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. YOU ARE STILL ON MY MIND AND IN MY HEART. NEVER FORGOTTEN AND FOREVER THANKFUL.

To those of you who still have your mothers with you, never take them for granted.

Always tell them how beautiful they are. No matter how you say it, she’d love to hear it.

This is an image that I have engraved in my mind.

As I child I remember always being told that I had a guardian angel.

This graphic was imprinted in cards and pictures around my home.

My Mom reminded me to always be good and behave because my guardian angel was always with me.

Warm memories …. on Mom and my childhood.
