THANK YOU MR. KIPLING !

Screenshot_20180720-102753_Google.jpgI HAVE BEEN MISSING IN ACTION WHEN IT COMES TO POSTING.  TO BE HONEST AND I WILL, I NEEDED TO  “CHECK MY INVENTORY” MY FAITH IN GOD AND THE UNIVERSAL LIFE FORCE IS ALWAYS STRONG AND CERTAIN. MY FAITH IN MY PLAN AND MYSELF HAD ALSO BEEN UNDENIABLE; I MAY NOT HAVE HAD TIME LINES SET, I MAY NOT HAVE KNOWN THE PARTICULARS, BUT I WAS CERTAIN…  CERTAIN THAT THIS WAS MY LIFE’S PLAN; MY CALLING,  MY “ISH” SO- TO- SPEAK- AND THEN I DID THE UN- THINKABLE…  I LET SOMEONES ELSE’S FEARS AND INSECURITIES SHAKE MY FAITH IN MYSELF. AS ALWAYS WITH ME, WHEN AN EMOTION COMES UP; NO MATTER POSITIVE, OR OTHERWISE; I GIVE IT – IT’S RECOGNITION, ACKNOWLEDGING IT’S PRESENCE, AND PROCESSING THE EMOTION TO DETERMINE WHY IT’S THERE. IN REIKI I’VE LEARNED, WHAT YOU DO NOT HEAL AND RELEASE, YOU REPEAT. SO I SIT WITH THE EMOTION, OR EMOTIONS AND I FEEL THEM;  I PRAY, I MEDITATE, I CRY, WHATEVER I NEED TO UNDERSTAND THEM SO THAT I CAN HEAL AND RELEASE THEM, TO BE ABLE TO MOVE FORWARD IN A MORE POSITIVE LOVING WAY. AS I ENDING A MEDITATION SESSION ON MY FRONT PORCH ( I CAN MEDITATE ANYWHERE, ESPECIALLY WHERE BIRDS ARE SINGING AND THERE’S A BEAUTY TO BEHOLD ) MY FAVORITE POET RUDYARD KIPLING, POPPED INTO MY HEAD, WITH MY ALL TIME FAVORITE POEM BY HIM TITLED “IF” ( TANGENT WARNING … THIS MAN WAS  A LITERARY GENIUS. I’M A WOMAN; AND THIS POEM IS AN ODE TO HIS SON, BUT I RESONATE WITH THIS POEM SO VERY MUCH… IT’S VERY, VERY DEEP, BRILLIANTLY WRITTEN. I ALSO HAVE FOUR SONS AND I FEEL IT SHOULD BE READ AND RE-READ BY EVERY YOUNG MAN AND EVERY MAN, IT SHOULD BE THEIR MOTTO ! I URGE EVERY WOMAN AND MAN TO READ THIS POEM AND PROCESS IT’S MEANING. ) OKAYYYY , TANGENT OVER. I’LL HIT ON CERTAIN LINES IN THE POEM THAT BROUGHT ME BACK , AND WHAT THEY MEAN TO ME .

” IF YOU CAN KEEP YOUR HEAD.       WHEN ALL ABOUT YOU ARE LOSING THEIRS AND BLAMING IT ON YOU.                           IF YOU CAN TRUST YOURSELF, WHEN ALL MEN DOUBT YOU,  BUT MAKE ALLOWANCES FOR THEIR DOUBTING TOO.”

THAT PART HIT ME HARD , BECAUSE I HAD’NT DID THAT.  IT IS HARD WHEN THE PERSON THAT DOESN’T BELIEVE IN YOU IS SOMEONE THAT YOU SHARE YOUR LIFE WITH; SOMEONE THAT YOU BELIEVE IN. SOMEONE THAT YOU TRULY FEEL IS PART OF YOUR LIFE’S WORK AND PLAN, A PERSON THAT YOU UNSELFISHLY AND LOVINGLY STAND BY FOR 22 YEARS AND IN YOUR VISION THEY’RE A PART OF IT ALL… SO TO HEAR FROM THIS HEART THEY DO NOT SUPPORT, OR BELIEVE AND NOT JUST THAT, DOWN RIGHT I WILL FAIL ! I ADMIT , I WAS SHAKEN UP .  I KNOW THIS IS WHY GOD SENT ME THIS POEM, SO I’LL CONTINUE TO THE NEXT FRAME THAT HIT ME AND HAD ME THINKING CORRECTLY AGAIN.

” IF YOU CAN DREAM AND NOT MAKE DREAMS YOUR MASTER.  IF YOU CAN THINK AND NOT MAKE THOUGHTS YOUR AIM.    IF YOU CAN MEET WITH TRIUMPH AND DISASTER  AND TREAT THOSE TWO IMPOSTORS JUST THE SAME.”

“IF YOU CAN MAKE ONE HEAP OF ALL YOUR WINNINGS. AND RISK IT ON ONE TURN OF PITCH AND TOSS.  AND LOSE.     AND START AGAIN AT YOUR BEGINNINGS…      AND NEVER BREATH A WORD ABOUT YOUR LOSS.”

THIS IS WHERE IT BECAME CLEAR FOR ME . ALSO WHEN WE PRAY OR MEDITATE GOD, OR YOUR HIGHER POWER DOES PROVIDE ANSWERS; YOU HAVE TO BE STILL… YOU HAVE TO HAVE A MINDFUL PRESENCE TO PICKUP THE ANSWERS .  FOR INSTANCE: WE ALL DREAM , AND HAVE DREAMS , WE MUST BE MINDFUL AS TO NOT GET SO CAUGHT UP IN CHASING THE DREAM THAT WE LOSE SIGHT OF OUR MISSION; TRIUMPH AND DISASTER BEING IMPOSTORS AND TREATING THEM THE SAME, BECAUSE THEY  ARE , THEY’RE ALL ABOUT PERCEPTION; NO-ONE HAS EVER HAD A VICTORY WITHOUT EXPERIENCING A FAILURE, BOTH ARE POSSIBLE , SOMETIMES FLEETING, TEMPORARY, NEVER-THE-LESS THEY GO TOGETHER, HENCE THEY SHOULD ALWAYS BE TREATED THE SAME.  THE LAST VERSE, IS ALL ABOUT RISK AND THAT’S WHAT I’VE DID, I STEPPED OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE. I TOOK A CHANCE ON FAITH, AND WHAT I BELIEVE IN, NOT CARING AT ALL WHAT PEOPLE WOULD THINK OR SAY. WHEN MY FAMILY DIDN’T UNDERSTAND, OR TRY TO, AFTER I’D EXPLAINED IT CLEARLY, I THOUGHT , OKAY THEY DO NOT WANT TO OPEN THEIR HEARTS TO UNDERSTAND AND THAT IS ALRIGHT… I WON’T STOP ! WHEN MY SPOUSE DIDN’T. GOD LED ME TO KIPLING. SO THANK YOU. GOD ! THANK YOU MR. KIPLING.

  1. This Is Great. I Love It. Support From Others Can Mean A lot. And When They Want Support Or At Least Try To Understand, It Does Hurt,. Keep Pushing, Everything Thats Good You Deserve It.
