    Fear
    keeps us focused on the past
    or worried about the future.
    If we can acknowledge our fear,
    we can realize that right now we are okay.
    Right now, today, we are still alive,
    and our bodies are working marvelously.
    Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky.
    Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones.

    ~Thich Nhat Hanh

    “When I despair,
    I remember that all through history
    the way of Truth and Love 
    have always won.
    There have been tyrants and murderers,
    and for a time, they can seem invincible,
    but in the end,
    they always fall.
    Think of it -
    Always.”

    ~Mahatma Gandhi

    "Many people
    would undoubtedly consider it foolish and superstitious
    to go on believing in a change for the better.
    It is sometimes so bitterly cold in the winter that one says,
    'The cold is too awful for me to care
    whether summer is coming or not;
    the harm outdoes the good.'
    But with or without our approval,
    the severe weather does come to an end eventually
    and one fine morning
    the wind changes and there is the thaw.
    When I compare the state of the weather
    to our state of mind and our circumstances,
    subject to change and fluctuation like the weather,
    then I still have some hope that things may get better."

    – Vincent van Gogh

    Hey Sweetie,
                 
    I am dealing with pain, anger, and fear at the moment 
    I haven't allowed these feelings to consume me
    But these emotional "wild horses" are running through me
    And I'm trying my best not to grab on and ride them
    Because there is no taming them

    "Listen.
    Behind the thoughts.
    Deeper than the worries . . .
    Be still and listen.
    There is a note
    that is singing in the core of your being.
    Feel it fill your body and bathe your mind.
    Let that note breathe through you
    and resonate out into the world."

    "And if you help everyone else in your worlds to do that,
    by helping them to learn and understand about themselves
    and each other and the way everything works,
    and by showing them how to be kind instead of cruel,
    and patient instead of hasty, and cheerful instead of surly,
    and above all how to keep their minds open and free and curious . . .
     Then they will renew enough to replace what is lost...”

    This life is for loving, sharing,
    learning, smiling, caring,
    forgiving, laughing, hugging,
    helping, dancing, wondering,
    healing, and even more loving.
    I choose to live life this way.
    I want to live my life in such a way
    that when I get out of bed in the morning,
    the devil says, ‘Aw shit, he’s up!’

    “Letting go gives us freedom,
    and freedom is the only condition for happiness.
    If, in our heart, we still cling to anything -
    anger, anxiety, or possessions -
     we cannot be free.”

  •  Hey Sweetie,

    Happy Friday, my Friend!

    Today I'm going with
    Life's too short and the moments too precious
    To waste time being angry or fearful
    There is so much beauty, love, and joy to experience
    I'm aware of the anger and fear
    That's running around like "wild horses"
    Through my heart and mind
    But I still ain't gonna take 'em for a ride
    Also - just a suggestion
    I highly recommend staying away from
    Watching or Reading the News
    (Just make ya mad - and who needs that)

    My Razorbacks have another tough game this Saturday
    On paper it looks tougher than last week
    And could be the toughest of our remaining games
    The team we play this week
    Looks to have a stouter defense than the last team we played
    The experts are picking us to lose this one (again)
    And it doesn't look good for us
    But I am feeling cautiously optimistic
    Hope springs eternal!
    We shall see

    Win or Lose
    I Love My Hogs!

    Woooooooo PIG! Sooie!!!

    !!!!!GO HOGS GO!!!!!

    Brilliant!!!

    Party Girl, Violetta, is falling in love with Alfredo
    But she's unsure about falling in Love
    She's a Party Girl and should live wild and fancy free
    Hmmm - What to do?

    ~*~

    LYRICS: English Translation

    [Violetta:]
    Free and aimless I frolic
    From joy to joy,
    Flowing along the surface
    of life's path as I please.
    As the day is born,
    Or as the day dies,
    Happily I turn to the new delights
    That make my spirit soar.

    [Alfredo:]
    Love is a heartbeat throughout the universe,
    mysterious, altering,
    the torment and delight of my heart.

    [Violetta:]
    Oh! Oh! Love!
    Madness! Euphoria!

    "During difficult times like this,
    I'm feeling that the most important thing
    is our love for each other
    and remembering to express that
    and avoid the temptation to get caught
    in negative and aggressive thinking.
    Instead of polarizing,
    this is a chance to stay with the groundlessness (1).
    I've been meditating and getting in touch
    with a deep and profound sadness.
    It's hard to stay with that much vulnerability
    but that's what I'm doing.
    Groundlessness and tenderness and sadness
    have so much to teach us.
    I'm feeling that it's a time to contact our hearts
    and to reach out and help in anyway we can".
              
    ~Pema Chödrön
               
    (1) Groundlessness: (a short definition)
    When life pulls the rug out from under you,
    leaving you in a free fall into uncertainty
    and the constantly shifting sands of
    impermanence and change
             
    To better understand “Groundlessness”
    and how to learn to live with it,
    I suggest reading this article:
    in the face of uncertainty and insecurity” (link)
              
    ~*~
              
    "If you send out goodness from yourself,
    or if you share that which is happy or good within you,
    it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times.
    In the kingdom of love there is no competition;
    there is no possessiveness or control.
    The more love you give away,
    the more love you will have."
               
     ~John O'Donohue
           
    ~*~
          
    Joy and woe are woven fine,
    A clothing for the soul divine,
    Under every grief and pine,
    Runs a joy with silken twine.
    It is right it should be so,
    We were made for joy and woe,
    And when this we rightly know,
    Through the world we safely go.
