Do You Believe?

Do you believe?
Believe in the moment?
Believe in the power of the moment?
All of those words
where did they go I asked?
those wise words,
those very wise words?
I wanted to organise them,
to keep them secure,
I didn't want to lose them,
they were so precious.
I felt insecure for fear of losing
those words,
for fear of maybe losing myself?
My hard earned self?
I became confused,
lost and afraid!
What was I to do I wondered?
I knocked on my door, 
I asked, what to do?
A small voice whispered
'believe in the power of the moment',
I listened, I believe!

These are my musings on
 taking in information,
on absorbing things that resonate with me, 
that they go down into the well springs
 and remain there until needed?
Until needed to be drawn upon.
I have been feeling an inclination
 to trust lately,
to trust that what is needed will be there in the moment?

What do you believe?

I love this particular post, Sue. I absolutely believe this as well. I reach out looking for insight and awareness and other ways of seeing things all the time. I save (literally save on a notepad on my desktop) the things I find, either from within myself or outside of myself and look at them from time to time. Sometimes I actually write my own musings from these meaningful reminders.

My guiding word this year is "focus" and this discipline actually aids in my belief that what I need at any particular moment will actually be there for me to use - with purpose.

Oh, Sue, this is so difficult to answer. What do I believe? This has been pretty shaken up this year with all that has happened. However, it also made me really believe in the power of love, the power of kindness. Wise words, yes - if they resonate with me.
I believe that pictures - or the mood in a picture - can resonate with people, set free some feeling, a certain memory, a yearning. Like the pictures you showed here. They are very beautiful and get right down to the soul.

your blog has a new type of crystal clarity. it catches the deep reflection of your thoughts, strivings,and the beauty of nature so perfectly. i love the way "reflection" in both outer and inner worlds is central to your heart.
even when you are looking closely at the fear of losing your way...your photographs are all tied up in serenity, peace, and soul beauty, and arrival.

you are reflective, run deep, your beauty is immediate, and you share your gifts so generously.


thank you for the grace that i have found here in your honesty.

i love you sue.

O YES! Like Rebecca, I BELIEVE in YOU!!! This post brought me to tears for some unknown reason, maybe tears of JOY because I do BELIEVE!!!(((((Sue)))))))

Yes! I do believe. All of that which we encounter becomes part of us. It becomes the future that is realized. Lovely post. Your words really connected with me.

Sue, girl, that is a re-reader if ever I saw one.
A re-re-reader, I'll keep it bookmarked.
Your photos are amazing. So subtle.
I don't want to trivialize the loss of words, as I have been through this quite recently, and it is devastating. Like losing a limb I suppose.
A very small change in diet actually made a vast difference, and I can now get by without dictionaries in every room.

This is insane. It's the third post this morning, (and fourth including my own), that speaks about just 'Being", or living in the now or the moment. There is peace there. I know, i have had the experience. I can't hold it and keep it forever, but I want to.
An Elder, a spirit man, once told me to speak and think with my heart and not my head. He also told me to not look back, as there is nothing back there, it is past. And not look forward, as we don't know the future. But to be right now, this breath. It is all we have and the answers to all you seek can be found this way .
Beautiful post Ms. Foxy.

More Peace

As I read the words, I realized the images also held the narrative.

Oh Ms. Foxy! First of all, I believe your camera is magic with you at the helm! Wonderful photos! I have suggested twice already today that Spring will be here soon enough and that Mother Earth still had things to show me. I also said that I'd look for things today. I saw magnificent mountain vistas and a bright sun making shadows in the crevaces and folds of the mountainsides. Those are the words. I didn't write them down, but I do remember what I saw.
Great stuff.

Dearest Sue,
We are of one soul lately you and I. My blogpost just before today was about being lost in the wood with Dante's quote and a film by David Whyte affirming that becoming lost is truly the beginning of the real journey when the real work is being done--the discovery of the soul and the heart in a new way that leaves one breathless in search of more discoveries, more journeys and much less afraid I suspect. Look at the beauty you have created here in your quest for Self (the capital S is so important). You have left us a trail of breadcrumbs all leading back to the beauty that is YOU. I am emailing you a link to a lovely poem by David Whyte called Mameen.
Love Always,

Yes I believe, yes I believe - Hot Chocolate told me to do so.....
Thanks for this very conceptual post. Great photos too.

Have a nice day, Boonie

Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.

Gathering Myself

Today I'm taking a little me time, doing what I love to do, just digital doodling. My mind has been on dolls, motherhood, Mary and the coming season. Recently an acquaintance posted about  ' Rag Doll ',  this is me at the moment, I feel a bit like a rag doll, the stuffing has been knocked out a little. So I'm taking time to just be, to gather myself, to see where I can patch things up a bit, maybe a dash of rouge will do the trick!  I'm giving myself some 'Mary mother love'. I'm sending back my thanks via Virgin a Day Recuerda mi Corazon I once had a sweet little doll, dears, The prettiest doll in the world; Her cheeks were so red and so white; dears, And her hair was so charmingly curled. But I lost my poor little doll, dears, As I played in the heath one day; And I cried for her more than a week, dears; But I never could find where she lay. I found my poor

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'
