Today’s prompt Incubate brings to mind two things – the fat chickens we reared who gave us fresh eggs everyday; and what Eckhart Tolle wrote in Stillness Speaks.
Some things are written in the stars. Yet it takes so many different conditions and factors for the life to play out as astrally-scripted.
As I type, I understand more about myself, and the world, and life, much more than I started out scraping the surface with each post.
(This is not a painting. yet.)
Dance like no one’s watching. Dance like the human feet can’t.
One of the most poignant lines was 爱深埋珊瑚海 – how the love was deeply buried in the coral sea.
Here is my favourite series of photos, which I have used many of them independently in my posts, and this one puts them altogether as variations on a theme. Theme Auguste Rodin and my favourite Burghers of Calais.
There were just too many colours and pens for one hand to handle.
At the rate life buzzes and bustles us by, silent moments are extremely precious. Knowing smiles, or acknowledging smirks, speak so much of connection and how intimately one knows another.
Growth is when one realises that being comfortable in her own skin is akin to not worrying about how unglamorous one looks on the surface. Or how sad or unhappy or troubled one appears when one really is truly in that mode.
Of starseeds and stardust.
n. the habit of forgetting how important someone is to you until you see them again in person.
n. the amniotic tranquility of being indoors during a thunderstorm, listening to waves of rain pattering against the roof like an argument upstairs, whose muffled words are unintelligible but whose crackling release of built-up tension you understand perfectly.
“I don’t do this-and-that because it is not me.” Is this valid? Do we know this for sure because we know this part (depends on context) of ourselves so thoroughly and innately that we are affirmative it is beyond us?
An inner glow manifests itself in the outer world. All flowers look extremely cheery these days.
The weekend has been an immersive sense of peace and presence. The feeling of being very very present and being very very willing to be present is insanely powerful.
Thank you for opening me up to the world of emotions – the scary “iffy” part deeply hidden within me that I never dared to even brush against. It was only through you, that I finally allowed myself to feel the emotions so denied of existence.
I cried last night. It was for no reason at all, and i thought “oh, full moon again?”. So I googled around for astro calendars and it’s apparently not full moon until two days later.
Release comes in different forms; healing comes in different forms; guidance comes in different forms. Intent only has to start with a focused one.
Woke up this morning to a barely-three-year-old having a meltdown. It was not the usual “no, no, no, I don’t want you” when he clearly knows what he wants (or not). He was crying and screaming for no reason. Although, I suspect it was because my Mom went off for a health check this morning…
Universe leaves no room for complacency. Now I understand why the Universe has its own realm of Wheel of Fortune, the Total Solar Eclipse being one of its little workings. I feel like He has just flung the carpet up high, and now the dust previously happily swept under has been swung from underneath. I…
My entire soul last night was engulfed in the energies of the upcoming eclipse, its invisible governance of how my life gets absolutely upturned, and all shadow aspects swept right up the surface.
Was not exactly jiggly, just really shady grey dotted with black.
I had my wisdom tooth extracted today!
So it’s National Day today.
I see now, I see how every decision or action or consideration in life really just boils down to two polarities – fear or love.
