Action versus thought

“Do you want
*
*
to know
*

who you are?
*
*
Don’t ask.
*
*
Act!
*
*
Action will
*
*
delineate and
*
*
define you.”
*
*

― Thomas Jefferson—
*
*
*
Thoughts are broken down by action, paragraphs disassembled into words, then letters, finally placed back in the scrabble box.
*
*
Words lose power when action arrives.

See how empty looks!!!!!!!!!! A mind,,, a mirror,,,

image
.
*
*
*
In my mind, my visualization of empty (mind) looks like this, startling each boat captain, who throws anchor in this pristine harbor.
*
*
Empty is devoid of crap, like thoughts, cloudiness, doubt, unworthiness, resentment and loss.
*
*
*
Empty shines a mirror back upon this current moment, look at those boats.
*
*
*
Letting go of all of our impurities, reveals what a perfect mirror the mind can be.
*
*
By all means filter your impurities, peer inward, in a quiet manner.

My happiness does not arrive with the cessation of ?

image

*
*
Happiness did not arrive with the cessation of turmoil, the elimination of challenges, the nullification of critcism, or the eradication of opponents.
*
*
In my opinion, happiness arrives when judgment, doubt, worry, anger, and unworthiness become insignificant from one breath to the next.
*
*
When my mind is empty, open, with a giving intention, happy with a big smile is near.
*
*
In tough times, happy comes when I accept me and the harsh situation without judgment.
*
*
It comes with knowing I need not flee, need not make excuses, need not judge or destroy it, it will change.
*
*
*
I know my happy will endure, outlast any situation or person by years, now.

Sit quietly, follow the breath,,peer inward, discover you.

My awareness gets lost, —– “Frozen”. —then appeared again with direction..

image
*
*
When my healing first began, it was subtle, almost insignificant shifts easily blended in with my old behavior that healing unveiled itself.
*
*
Today, at Walmart, I purchased a “Frozen” poster for my six year old grand daughter.
*
*
Funny how mindfulness or the subconscious works, as soon as I turned the key off as I arrived home, the realization of me not being able to recollect putting that poster in that car, overwhelmed my viewing screen.
*
*
Well, it was not there, I had left it, my profound awareness, my practice, well nothing is perfect.
*
*
Before despair, judgment of loss would have prevailed throughout the day,,however mindfulness stepped in non chalantly.
*
*
Suddenly instead of loss, I pictured some needy mother, finding a small offering, a free “Frozen” poster for her daughter, from the universe, and I smiled.

A mindful jock looks at the digital bombardment

Spam about renting private yachts and jets last week have morphed into erectile dysfunction and section eight housing, dream homes for today, really.
*
*
This is all chatter, time wasters, life wasters.
*
*
We have a choice, mindless chatter or empty.
*
*
Empty has to be developed, earned.
*
*
Another choice.
*
*
*

Starts with the action of letting go of thoughts, simple!

“The most
*
*
difficult thing
*
*
is the
*
*
decision
*
*
to act,
*
*
the rest
*
*
is merely
*
*
tenacity.
*
*
–Amelia Earhart–

*
*
*
In my opinion and experience, one trait that clearly separates men is action.
*
*
Humans who can still take action in the midst of fear, doubt, worry and chaos find some happiness, some satisfaction, some sustenance for joy.

What might be?

image

*
*
In “spring training”, hope “springs” anew for every baseball fan, in this time before the competition begins, everyone has an emotional dream for a world series championship.
*
*
Likewise for us, on that flowing river of life, we all sit anxiously perched, gazing intently to scout the first sign of what awaits beyond that next bend.
*
*
The upcoming season can bring many emotions, as life’s daily challenges.
*
*
Do we paddle enthusiastically forward with a smile, accepting what life and river hold?
*
*
PTSD prevents paddling enthusiastically, in fact causes us to avoid, resist, deny, doubt and fear what is up ahead.
*
*
Reality is the same, we have so many breaths in this rented frame we inhabit, we can decide to waste them or paddle enthusiastically.
*
*
We die the same day, same time, whatever the choice.
*
*
Why worry then, risk, live, smile, be belligerent, be happy, then give that smile to all who cross your path.
*
P.S. Even if I am wrong, it is the only path where happy lives.
