WINDHORSE REMEMBERS SPRING'S PROFUSION
BLOSSOMS DON'T LAST LONG...
LET A TV SHOW PASS YOU BY
BUT KEEP YOUR EYE OUT FOR BLOSSOMS,
AND ALL KINDS OF BIRDS
LET THE WIND IN YOUR HAIR!
MAXWELL PARRISH REALLY CAUGHT THE ESSENCE OF SPRING
AND LOVE OF NATURE IN THIS PAINTING.
When you find
inside your heart
let it go...
PRAYER FOR ALL WHO NEED STRENGTH, PURPOSE AND COMMITMENT TO FIND THEIR DREAM, BUILD IT AND LIVE IT. MAKE AN EFFORT TO UNDERSTAND SOMEONE WHO SEEMS DIFFICULT OR LOST TODAY.
LIVING FROM THE HEART

SUBTLE FRAGRANCES~SUBTLE NURTURANCE
Pear and Chinese Apple or Pear? Blossoms; Daffodils, Violets, Hyacinth, Magnolia, Plum Trees! Fringed Grasses that dance as one approaches, heralding the Joy of Universal Love!
Anyone born after the 1950's are handicapped if they are city or suburban dwellers...to the glorious Earth Smells that ebb and flow throughout the growing season. Today in Long Island, New York, is a good one for detecting the soft fragrance...no dillegent housewives in this proximity throwing their "Dryer Cloths" into their clothes dryers. That obnoxious smell coveres all the freshness and clear inspiration of one's lungs...the air feels bright, alive, and soooo breathable when those ugly odors are absent.
Nature has an inimitable Way.
Their is a Wholeness in those natural fragrances...that leaves you Savoring, Fulfilled...instead of Wishing for more again.
And those many voices of various birds...these fill one's psyche...they fill what Father Jarema's calls the "Hole in the Heart."
so, the Great Sadness...that children today have little to no opportunity to
fine-tune their sensory apparaturs to glean the Nurturance coming through on
Nature's Winds, and by the simple Releasing of Fragrance the Flower
does...emitting and flowing their Gifts outward to be absorbed by a lucky
passerby or sitter.
These are Elixirs! Here's the fabled Elixir mighty Warriors hunted and quested for, challenged Dragons for...the Magic Elixir, Fountain of Youth that enhances Brain Function, See-ing...the Serum of "Life Everlasting"...it is those Subtleties of Nature that are the True Elixir; Fostering Wholeness; Promoting Satisfaction.
We have allowed these qualities of the Qualities to be overshadowed, drowned out...by the inventions and "creations" of "Man." The "need," nay, the lust for constant stimulation has made an imbalanced world! Patience to Wait...to be among Nature so you may Receive. It cannot penetrate your sealed-up home!
You have been hearing Wisdom Teachers everywhere speak of "Going Home." Many consider that they will go back to a particular Star or another. For us on this planet right now, however; even if later it will be a Starship that collects us...FIRST...we need to turn back and SEE Mother Gaia as our HOME. Where are you going to jump off to without Earth?? (While living?)
My vision is that if each person found their way to embrace, interact, co-create with Earth in any way that seems right for each, a new Paradise would emerge in the Heart of Humanity, and SO much more FUN!!
All this came to me this morning all because of working in my garden in the crisp early day...being "privvy" to a number of Bird species...Song Birds!! Vital, Vibrant Voices!
I 've been surprised to feel warm enough; not cold...generating heat from inside my core and all points of my Being. I feel the chilly coating on my skin and sort of a light pressure of it over the back and chest. But comfortable enough.
In a similar vein...have you ever actually chewed almonds slowly until they turned to fully mashed flavor?
SLOW DOWN! That's one of Mother Nature's first retorts!
LIFE IS LIKE A NAUTILUS SHELL WITH PARALLEL COMPARTMENTS...UNIVERSES THAT WE CAN CHOOSE TO LIVE IN, EVEN THOUGH OUR BODY SEEMS TO BE BOUND TO ONE. LIFE REPEATS ITSELF IN OUR ACTIONS UNTIL WE LEARN TO LET GO, FORGIVE AND CULTIVATE COMPASSION FOR SELF AND ALL OTHERS. WHEN WE ARE ALERT, WE CAN WATCH WHAT COMES UP IN OUR MIND, HOW FAST IT MOVES BY UNLESS WE CHOOSE TO GRAB IT AND HOLD IT. OUR INNER CHILD IS HELD CAPTIVE BY GRIEF UNTIL WE LEARN TO PARENT HIM OR HER; ASSURE THAT CHILD AND SHOW UP FOR HER LIKE NO ONE EVER HAS. TAKE YOUR INNER CHILD BY THE HAND TODAY. MAKE A PROMISE TO HIM AND KEEP IT. ALLOW NO ONE TO TREAT YOU AS YOU WOULD DISALLOW THEM TO TREAT AN INNOCENT CHILD. PART OF YOU IS AN INNOCENT CHILD. PART OF YOU IS THE ONLY PARENT THAT CAN GIVE THE BEST THAT INNER CHILD NEEDS MOST.
OPEN YOUR HEART TO DREAMS!
FIND THE KEY TO YOUR HAPPINESS
THEN OPEN THE DOOR AND WALK BOLDLY THROUGH!
WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL OF ABOUT 5, MY DAD RETURNED FROM SERVICE IN WWII AND WHEN SPRING CAME HE BUILT ME A SWING...THE KIND YOU DON'T SEE ANY MORE...WHERE HE TOOK A BOARD, CUT IT TO SIZE AND PROCEEDED TO CUT NOTCHES ON EITHER END. I WAS ASTOUNDED AT THE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILL HE HAD! HE THEN SECURED A ROPE TIED AT EACH END ONTO A BRANCH OF THE TREE AND THE ROPE HUNG IN A SLING, INTO WHICH HE SAT THE NOTCHED BOARD AND PRESSED DOWN TO SET IT. WELL I DID SOME MIGHTY SWINGING ON THAT SWING! AND WHAT I SAW AND SMELLED WAS APPLE BLOSSOMS JUST LIKE THOSE ABOVE...A WHOLE TREE FULL! IT MAY BE MY FAVORITE MEMORY OF MY WHOLE LIFE!
THANKS, DAD...I LOVE YOU!
A LOT HAS HAPPENED ON THE WEB SINCE THIS PAGE WAS FIRST MADE. THE DEFUNCT LINKS BELOW ARE SO NOSTALGIC ~
I LOVED MY WINDHORSE'S JEWLS OF LIFE...I WILL CONSTRUCT ANOTHER.
WINDHORSE PROSPERITY WAS A GOOD ONE...PERHAPS I CAN FIND A COPY. IN 'THOSE DAYS' FREE PROVIDERS WERE GIVING US SPACE TO MAKE OUR PAGES...AND WHEN THEY WANTED THEIR SPACE BACK OR TO MAKE CHANGES...TOUGH LUCK! LOL THIS BRINGS BACK GREAT MEMORIES OF 'GREEN EYES,' AKA ALEX/ALEXANDRIA...JLAED, MOYRA, FLOWERS, FRIENDS AND MUSINGS, DAUGHTERS OF THE WOLF, AND SO MANY OTHER GREAT PAGE MAKERS AND SPIRITUAL WARRIORS.
LOVE TO YOU!
