    This present moment informs this present moment, right here. Ah, knowing what to do or not do is wonder-filled.

      Changing one’s mind is about changing one’s perspective (look through) and perception (awareness). So, yesterday being my first day to get out for a walk, I changed my mind about walking to the top of the river bank, and instead headed off across a near-by park. Before returning home I went to its playground and managed to get in a tire swing. As I gently swung, looking through ‘young awareness’ totally immersed in the delightful motion of play, it wasn’t long before my presence was discovered, and exchanges of smiles brightened the already warm sunny atmosphere. Suddenly a four year old climbed in with me to tell me his story. Then another, we were full up.

      All is well with you—-
      Spirit and you are synonymous terms. Not a sliver of separation. If you say, “I cannot do so and so because of so and so,” you are saying that Spirit cannot do so and so because of so and so.

      Let’s see and feel the beauty
      of personal and cultural diversity
      as variations of humanity’s life-themes.

      Why fear the unfamiliar if peace requires we mingle — experiencing…allowing
      new helpful ways to connect with others?

      If peace is our priority, let’s maintain interactions with all “ready and willing” — responding to this heartbeat.

    “The same moon shines over ten thousand rivers.” A Taoist statement for serious students of Truth. These Solstice Supermoon evenings draw the full statement into consciousness as the river sings, and birds dart about in these late evenings of amazing peace and tranquillity.

    At this current time of equinox, I delight in this sense of Balance, which I feel will guide me as I seemingly traverse new seasons of experience.

  5. su.child says:

    I’ve changed my mind. Since no one’s responded: Hey, Su, you messed up, you meant to say ‘equinox.’ Actually, I felt like playing to see if anyone would so respond.
    Now, since the world didn’t end, and most Christians say it’s time to celebrate the birth of the Christ Child, Jesus, and others say it’s the Child within us all – the awesome perception within when one actually experiences this ‘immaculate conception.’ So, an exchange on this topic is for another ‘new now moment.’ -wishing everyone playful Joy!

    Once again I experience the peaceful reassurance of an eternal, ever-present Balance, usually not as clear as at each Solstice when the day and the night are equal. I tangibly experience Changelessness confirmed as apparent change continues.

    I submit this meditative writing by an ‘Unknown Confederate Soldier,’ which is now titled as his poem or prayer. It grows in popularity in this new time of national polarization.

    I asked God for strength that I might achieve.
    I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey.
    I asked for health that I might do greater things.
    I was given infirmity that I might do better things.
    I asked for riches that I might be happy.
    I was given poverty that I might be wise.
    I asked for power that I might have the praise of men.
    I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God.
    I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.
    I was given life that I might enjoy all things.
    I got nothing that I asked for, but everything I hoped for.
    Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.
    I am, among all men, most richly blessed.

    How else could we ever know ‘Changelessness?’

    Oh, what a topic for a meditative writing!
