On being sad

On being sad

Those who turn around sadness are heroes, be it other’s sadness or their own.

One so far

Red oneI have planted many garden tomatoes called Outdoor Girl into bales, pots, straight into the ground.  Yet the very first red tomato so far, is from an up~side~down patio tomato growing in the lean~to.  In Japan it is lovely custom and gesture, to give the first of the fruits or veg to someone important in your life (usually a boss).  I’m leaving it for hubby to pick and enjoy, this will give me the giving joy.  Love

Sorry to anyone reading this who is colour blind, as the image is mostly green with one being red.

 

Suits me

There have been times when my body suit has been smaller and vulnerable, it has been larger and full of lives, it’s been strong and protective… yet I am all of these in a thought.  This body and the thoughts of who and how and why, well they all accept loving, kind, compassionate gestures gladly in whatever shape I find myself, it seems to suit me.

Suits me

Outside memory stick

Let’s face it, I use this blog not so much to share with the world and all who sail on her as you would think, but there’s a little bit more of this being used as an outside memory stick.  To put things down (was just about to type “on paper”) so to speak.  You see, not only might I bump my noggin one day in the garden weeding or when prancing about belly dancing in the lounge laughing, but maybe being my outspoken self {{{giggles}}} when some (we won’t use expletives so early in the morning) might take it on themselves to bash me on the noggin believing their stressful thoughts about me or because of their own unmet needs as they might feel obliged to be a violent (and again we won’t use expletives so early in the morning) and to be honest I bloody well pity the buggers.  

So maybe this blog is a bit like for future reference, saving my ideas… oh geez, I was so close to using that four letter swear word @?!#!~ BANK ~@?!#!  

Oh wait:  “Why share?”  Well let’s face it not many are reading this, but still:  The World needs random kindness words, vegan recipes, peaceful thoughts shared etc and the like… regardless!  For the most part this is semi anonymous and is semi log book, semi how~to that you can pick up or put down at leisure.  Will anyone read it?  I just did (as I wrote it).  It was okay, I liked what I typed and who I am to judge thoughts that are like flying insects that land where they will.  I do however work at being kind, not only to others, but also to myself and I recommend that to anyone as a good life to practice, practice, practice that kindness and compassion.  We can all get angry, upset seeing the unkind and the uncompassionate, but we might be them if we don’t question our thoughts.

Basically, don’t just “Get a life” but “Get into being a kind life and live out that adventure, practising kindness to the very end!”

a kind life.

 

The French translation bit:

Une = A

Vie = Life

Compatissante = Compassionate

Against the tide

loveGiggling is an act of love for one’s self, that also in the right place, at the right time can be an act of love for others.  Dance also can have the knock on effect for others that have eyes to see how dance joys the soul.

Yet to stand out against the tide of unkind and the cruel is such an act of love for others, but it most definitely has the knock on effect of pouring love back.

The when, the where…  it’s sometimes set, it’s sometimes spontaneous…  but it is best practised on a regular basis.  For to change this world of humans from the route they are taking, takes more than just one act, it takes a series of acts within a lifetime:

  1. Peaceful kind thoughts
  2. Kind actions to one’s self and others e.g. not consuming other sentient beings
  3. Standing up against the tide of unpeacefulness and cruelty in a peaceful way
  4. Repeat from 1.

Seeing the truth

Do we need other facts than those we see before us, to change the way we behave?
