Haiku my Heart #37 ~ Persistence

Holding true balance
through life's turbulent ocean,
ebbs and flows in waves.
I have read, and I'm inclined to agree
the occasions of perfect balance
are few, and not held for long.

My yoga practice bears this out,
persistence is the answer!

we must be
in the same flow

my haiku today
is about waves
bringing me
back
my balance...

Yes, dear Ms. Foxy, life itself is a balancing act, and we are probably balanced more often than we realize, we just aren't paying attention. It is a good haiku that reminds of this, now it's up to us to put it into practice.

peace

dear one,
even the moon waxes and wanes. it is all apart of deep mindfulness and ultimate grace.
i love the sea. such a perfect teacher always willing to reflect the light.

love to you my dear sweet friend.
My dad's favorite saying was, "Life is a series of trade-offs." The idea of balance was foreign to him. It was one thing or the other. Kinda like me!

My dear Sue,
I think that there are very few of us who live our lives in balance but the fact that you are disciplining yourself to a practice speaks well of your desire to have a deeper interior life. I think that is a beautiful thing. Water is a wonderful metaphor really. We are, after all 95 percent water so if there is ebb and flow in our ability to balance, perhaps it is because of the pull of the moon or the position of the planets. There are so many things involved here.
Here is a lovely little sutra to remind you about balance:

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …
