Processing Pain ...



As humans we want to put rhyme and reason into our experience of existence
for we are made thinking and feeling beings, and to think there is no reason, well this is absurd and unreasonable...

But when pain enters the scenario and particularly your own dear one's excruciating pain that will not go away day after day week after week then all  wise words of connection to the Divine are challenged, you are left with an emptiness, confusion and overwhelm...

You may find yourself despising your words of wisdom, even the words of poets and mystics which once soothed now may take on a hollow tone.

I keep clutching at my thoughts in desperation for the reason, they tell me it is all part of the universal unfolding, for lesson learning, my edification.
 I tell you I haven't got it yet! And, I must carry on along the path for I have no choice...



But still I cannot deny the 'awesome' in everyday, the million facets of beauty sparkling out from all directions of heaven and earth, bombarding my senses, shouting out the reason beyond reason, evident in the depth and breadth of love, the gifts galore in creation and kind hearts ~ I am forever grateful.

Holding you deeply and tenderly in this your time of darkness....my sister, my friend...for all things there is a purpose...you higher self knows this, as does his...it is ok to question, ok to doubt, ok to be angry and it is necessary to grieve...grief is the reflection of love so deep, it is the light house in the storm, the diamond in the rough, the release of the heart bursting open. Do what you need to do, Love can handle it, Love can take it all, Love listens and knows your pain, Love never leaves....ever

so much Love and Light sent to you and your across the vast lands and oceans that are between us...I know you can feel it

♥&heart;♥
Indeed your words say it well. Sometimes the words and wisdom that once inspired ring hollow - lose their meaning - their comfort in the face of life's unreasonable pain. There is no "sense" to be made of any of it, as you *endure* this. I love that you are honest about your feelings in the face of all this... not trying to sugar coat it. Even trusting "the Divine" becomes a challenge when one feels abandoned... And maybe there is no "reason" - life is just the way it is - and all one can do is put one foot in front of the other... And yet, how sweet that you are still finding solace in the sparkles of love around you... Sending you many love sparkles *~*~*~*~*

i feel that suffering is the one arrow that pierces through into the heart, putting every person's faith/beliefs into question.

perhaps it's the greatest spiritual challenge/experience. my own suffering i can accept, but that of loved ones?

what stops me in my tracks is hearing/seeing the ones are experiencing the suffering be more at peace, or more accepting, than us the bystanders. that has to mean something.

So much truth in your words, my heart aches for you and honors you in your strength. And so much wisdom and love in these comments there isn't much more that I can add, other than sending love, prayers, and peace....

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 


I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
