How to defeat the demons of negativity

Yoga Lifestyle with Cristina

Why not recognize how much stuff goes right in our lives? Every single day.

The other day I was in a grocery store line. There was an elderly man ahead of me, interacting with the cashier. They were sorting out a price check. The cashier was being patient and kind with the old gentleman, treating him the way we’d like to be treated.

Behind me in line stood a man and a woman. The woman muttered under her breath, “Every time! This happens every time!” Clearly, she was feeling impatient about the old man holding up the line.

I listened to the old gentleman, who was gracious and jovial with the cashier, while the impatient woman behind me sighed and fidgeted with her cell phone.

Beyond the cashier, I observed the hurly-burly of afternoon shoppers around us. Carts filled with every imaginable item…

An incredible way to look at GOD!!!

When GOD solves our problems, we have faith in HIS abilities.

When GOD doesn’t solve our problems HE has faith in our abilities.

God’s accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs . . .
-those of the canary in 14 days;-those of the barnyard hen in 21 days;
-eggs of ducks and geese in 28 days;
-those of the mallard in 35 days;
-The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.

(Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!)

God’s wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant. . . .

-The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction.

Siesta…

Stuart France

rs-587*

Sweating hours.

Quiescence lies like a crime.

*

The crack of dry twigs underfoot…

startles!

A tumultuous green-flash

of thumping rampage.

Dog legs.

Baboon haunches.

A luminous ankh arrows away.

A way out to tree-stump.

To crook torso and tail.

And splay dripping

limbs akimbo.

*

A panting swastika

pulses suspended.

*

Mimicking leaf.

Balanced in bark.

Night  flecked.

*

Slowly stretching…

it twists

an ancient neck

to glare.

*

Eon empty eyes

Blink in

the sun.

Weekly challenge

This is my entry for Hélène Vaillant’s what do you see challenge.

*******

Mother Nature’s Painting.

mother

Those were the days Mother Nature thought, she stepped back and looked closely at the painting. Then she shook her head and said, to no one in particular.” Who am I kidding it was never like that”

“What do you mean ” asked a gentle voice beside her. She jumped then smiling she replied. “You know exactly what I mean, ever since you set those humans loose they have done nothing but , rape, destroy,waste and abuse all my gifts.”

There was a silence then God spoke again “I admit after I gave them free will it did all go down hill”. Shifting , uncomfortablely on his feet God admitted “They were so cute at first weren’t they?” “Huh! I am not sure they were ever cute, they certainly are not now.” Mother…

The Path to Genocide Starts With the Label of Inhumanity

Writergurlny

The Holocaust did not start with gas chambers, death camps and mass killings. It started with words. It started with calling Jews inhuman, comparing them with rats.

It’s obvious to anyone with a brain that the American immigration policy is in need for an urgent re-write. You know who does not help when he compares deported immigrants to animals:

“You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals and we’re taking them out of country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before, and because of the weak laws they come in fast… it’s crazy.”

99.9% of those who are seeking asylum are not criminals. They are escaping a life that is defined by poverty, hunger and violence. They should not be defined by a minority who are motivated by violence.

America, as we all as know, is the land…

At the Threshold

Being in Nature

 photo prompt:
https://scvincent.com/2019/04/04/thursday-photo-prompt-threshold-writephoto/

Ryan always thought of the cave at the base of the cliffs as Plato’s cave.   Maybe that was because the local environment group held its annual beach clean day around the same time he delivered his lecture on Plato’s cave to his current lot of first year uni students.

Shouldering his collection sack he picked his way to the back of the cave where he knew plastic debris collected.   Sure enough there was the usual mounds of those hard little straws that came out of box drinks, fragments of sea worn plastic from unidentifiable sources and tangles of plastic twine washed overboard from ships.   It was always the same kind of debris in this cave.  He used to wonder why that was until someone suggested that could be because of the strength of  various ocean currents.   Different weight objects would get carried on different currents.   Whatever the…
