WALKING INTO THE LIGHT

” The windows of my soul I throw wide open to the sun.”  John Greenleaf Whittier.

I know that pain and suffering are one side of the coin of life,

thus accept them and grow through them,

whilst remaining vigilant to the joy and light within my heart,

and let them direct me.

Meaning

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will do.” ~ Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland.galactic conception

I sit here in wonder at the immensity of it all!
As a mere spec in the universal mind
I have a purpose,
Ever so small my part,
However, I have a purpose,
And it is this purpose that gives my life meaning.
For without it I would shrivel up and die.

ALONE ON THE STAGE OF LIFE!

“All great and precious things are lonely.” John Steinbeck

A friend recently felt so alone and used, felt that all his efforts to do good were to no avail, as no one seemed to appreciate what he did. He was ready to give up, and become as selfish and self-serving as the majority, well that is what he said. What can you tell someone who feels so low and alone? Or, was he just having a bad day?

I guess we all feel these way at times, I know I certainly do. It appears to me, that there are those who do much for humanity, and that many don’t recognize that effort or even give thanks for it. That’s just how it is… When you really care about something, you don’t need to be recognized for it, you simply do it because you are a responsible person! Whilst, at the same time, there are those who are a burden on society, who do little to help themselves and are rewarded for the littlest of efforts. This does not appear ‘fair’, but that’s just the way it is… 

  I think that no matter what category we find ourselves in, from the useful humanitarian, to the lazy, the user, the abuser, we are in this life together! So, my advise to the humanitarian who is having a bad day, is to remember to follow your heart and do what feels right for you, then no matter what you do, you will feel happy. Take time out ‘for you’ at times to refresh yourself, to do the things that you personally enjoy, and to treasure your personal worth, as no one can take that away from you! Be your own best friend!

Existentially, we are all in ‘this’ alone; we came in alone, we go out alone, although we are intrinsically connected with everything. A conundrum that we all need to deal with, and the yearning to dissolve and become part of the ‘One’, some would say is an infantile yearning back to the womb, and others would say it’s their raison d’être.  I say, swim in your emotions, dive into your heart, and play the best part you can by embracing life!

Blessings and hugs, Bridget ❤

Inner Lights

And the angels sang heavenly praises by Bridget Cameron

And, the angels sing heavenly praises.

“Always be mindful of the kindness and not the faults of others.” ~Buddha

Inner Lights

When in tune,
Heart and mind align,
Causing spirit to speak directly
Invoking grace.

How do we do this?

By focusing on the ‘inner light,  in ourselves and others.

PEACE STAR

PEACE STAR

At times, I need to remind myself of ‘the peace within’ when I feel swept away by external forces beyond my control. It is always deep at my centre, where I can calm my turmoil.
