Living

I like where I live.

I look around my

apartment and see

where I’ve been in the

past.

I like it now, too.

It represents life.

If I have the

strength, I’d

rather participate

in what I have

here and gather more

in the future.

I really want

a purpose to

live.  Something

to pursue with

passion.

My own.  I

pray that I will

be clear-headed

enough to be

an emissary

for God’s

(the Universe’s)

goodness.

They’re Free

My hands are

extremely warm

right now.

Superior circulation.

That’s so good for

me because it

means free electrons

from the earth are

coming into my

body to neutralize

all of the free radicals

I’m producing each

second of my

life…

otherwise I will

be continuing with

illness

from inflammation.

I’m grounding

because I believe

it to be the best

thing for me

right now–and

always.  I can type

this!!  For the first

time in a week since

I’ve started grounding

again,

my arthritis is getting

so much better that

I can type this!!

I’m so happy!!

superman

living on the

coattails of

yesterday

is stale

and old.

no one wants

fresh

or do they?

grounded

or not

I’m a

superman

in disguise

as me.

Hold my feet.

I’m about to

take off…

my clothes

to reveal

my true

identity.

A Date

one small date

made all the

difference!

a bit of

carbohydrate

with all the

protein that

was struggling

to be broken

down for

energy was

relieved.

The Moment of Silence

I like the peace

of the land.

I listen and

silence

breaks

the silence

with a whisper

in the distance.

My body relaxes.

I offer myself

to the earth

who watches over

the settled

surroundings

I experience.

Warmth of Love

Mild weather

where I live.

I could survive

in harsher

environments

but I’m glad

I live in a

gentler one

that allows

for outside

travel.

The Abundance of The Universe

There’s always help

around the corner…

if we could only

see that.

The universe is

looking to give

from its

abundance

to those who

would be

willing to

receive it.

Do Your Best

I’ve got to admit

that I’m getting

better as badly as I

now feel.

I try to push too

hard out of fear

and am slammed

down to the

mat by the

universe.

I can only

forgive myself

for being so

insentient.

I think I know

what I’m up

against but

refuse to admit

it.  Please bring

me back into my

right mind.

Sending Energy

When we feel “blessed”

we, or at least I, wonder

how many people are

“praying” for me.  Especially

when they know I am not

feeling well.

But they do.  Sometimes

they mention it:  “I’ve been

praying for you.”

My response is:  “Oh, really!?”

“Thank you!”

That’s how I feel

now.

And many times

they show it with

their actions.

Spontaneous overflowing of Love

When you observe kindness

you get as much or more

benefit as when you do kindness.

Other people’s love warms your

heart and enlivens your mind

with enthusiasm and

inspiration at the goodness

of people’s hearts.

You just want to give

back to them in

appreciation when

you can.

They look for no

reward.
