It’s been a long time!!

Hello to anyone who might still follow even though I haven’t posted in such a long time.

I’m involved in a new movement, sharing space through online Heart Circles and we are looking for personal stories that fit with our values.

Our movement is Butterfly 11 https://www.facebook.com/Butterfly11Movement on Facebook and I thought some of you might be interested in taking a look and maybe sharing stories.

Our vision at Butterfly 11 is to create a world where everyone is heard, loved and accepted. And our mission is to empower everyone to be their authentic selves.

But perhaps most importantly, we want this movement to be bigger than those of us who initiated it.

What we’re creating is a safe space for people to show up as who they really are and for all of us to connect in our very humanness through online gathering and written stories.

If you’d like to contribute a personal story or a poem around your personal journey – we would love to hear from you.

We ask that your original piece of content is centred around our values – Unconditional Acceptance, Connection, Empathy, Respect, Trust.

When we share your submission with our audience you can choose to be anonymous or to receive credit for your post, whichever you prefer. We would simply be thrilled to hear from you!

 

The Flow

I think we are a lot like rivers, trying to find our way home, flowing and joining a much greater flow to blend and become one. Our lives are much like the river when it reaches and joins the ocean, whether we recognise it or not, we are heading towards oneness.

Most rivers run to the sea or join another river or body of water, some don’t though,  some rivers just dry up, evaporate or disappear into the ground. Like us in a way, when we loose our way or live without purpose.

I love to stand on the shore, water lapping at my feet and know that in some way I have joined something greater, to know that I am part of that flow and will eventually join something much greater than me.

Relax

Can you relax enough to let yourself go, can you loose the human and connect to your inner being.  Can you fall into yourself, let everything go, relax all of your muscles and just be.  Who are you when you let go, who is it that lives in this world, who is it that is, but is not attached or affected by anything that goes on in your life.  Who is the being who is you, who is the truest form of you?

Daily Prompt – Relax

 

Nature Lessons 98

The pathway of a the flower is clear, from bud, to full bloom to decay.  The flower continues to grow, moving through all these stages of her life in absolute beauty.   Does the flower already know her path, is she connected to the eternal source when she reaches up to the brightness of the sun, is her life just a small part of her journey home.  Be the flower in life, accept and relish each moment for what it is, knowing that it is all part of the eternal journey.
