Don’t Feel Sorry For The Little “Birdy”

•August 31, 2013 • Leave a Comment

I had a recent experience with a little “birdy” in my back yard. He was determined to get a string out of our fire pit that had been securely tied and tangled around a stick – earlier a play thing for my boys. The bird was a rare sort – really beautiful and it kept tugging and tugging at the string. It would leave for a while and come back over the course of the morning and I marvelled at its determination.

I thought perhaps I could help and so while it was away I went out and cut the knots and untangled the string so the bird could simply come in and pull it out to be used for whatever purpose it intended. I watched and waited a while from the kitchen window and in between got busy myself doing dishes and what not. At one point I looked up to see that the string was gone.

I was sort of disappointed to miss the moment where it was taken and I did find myself wondering and hoping that some other birds had not taken the string. There are a lot of birds in our yard you see – young robins and other birds milling around but none as ambitious as the little one trying to get the string that morning.

Finally after an hour or so there he was on the edge of the fire pit looking in and looking rather confused tilting his little head this way and that. I knew he had not been the one to get the string – the lazy robins had seen the opportunity and took the easy route grabbing that string while it was easy to take.

I felt sad and disappointed for a moment and then I had a moment of clarity about something else in my life. Some people are like that little bird – determined and ambitious but also determined that life will be hard and so it is. Other people are like the Robins – slow and steady, waiting for the easy moment to swoop in and take what has been easily offered to them. Neither one is bad but one must not feel sorry for the determined bird that chooses to make things hard nor should one judge the Robin that gets an easy ride. We all make out choices.

Perhaps Let Go – CLING

•July 6, 2013 • Leave a Comment

I have been pretty non specific on my blog here but I will say that today I am starting to feel a genuine shift. There have been things I have been holding on to. I have been seeking clarity and resolution but not really allowing it to happen. I have been clinging to something in particular and not open to other possibilities. I am not particularity comfortable with the letting go REALLY even though I understand the concept. I have so much to be grateful for but I really want to hold on to being angry and upset BUT I don’t. Of course I don’t……it will kill me if I do. Let the light shine so brightly! Let me get this – I really need to get this, for many lives are at stake if I don’t.

She Wanted To Rush

•July 4, 2013 • Leave a Comment

She wanted to rush everything but life had her own plan and pace. She could relax and trust or hold on tight and try to control the experience and the lessons. She would opt to trust for any other way would surely make her miserable – perhaps even sick. She had seen glimpses of this and her prairie girl spirit would have NONE OF IT settling in her heart. Not a chance – not in this life time.

Grasping and Desperate

•June 24, 2013 • Leave a Comment

I hit a wall and bashed my head against it for almost near a week. I was grasping and feeling desperate and wanting for answers, actions and direction for moving forward. The answers did not come….they were not ready and life’s time is not always on board with my time. Exhausted by my thought I had no choice but to surrender.

I am surrendered again and I feel very good for it. Angels certainly were laughing and waiting and then holding me tight when I finally released the grasp and LET GO.

Clarity and Purpose

I’ve always found the answers to come in the fog. In a haze and in the blur, an awareness of some sort tips the scales and things change. Life and life energy shift and then comes the movement towards greater things in life. Always moving towards our greatest gifts.
