Poop Balls...Small Spaces & Dogs

What are poop balls and why and I writing about them today?

Over this last week I have been finding, what I call poop balls, on my bed. The second time I found one I told my lil girly that if I find another one she was off the bed for the day...she has been a good girly...until today.

At first my egoic self wanted to get mad and angry, scream at and then kick (jj) the dog, but I remained calm after raising my voice to her and booted her outside. She is grounded to the floor - actually I let her be in the chair we happen to have been given...ergo she is very lucky we even have a chair in this space.

So, I picked it up, threw it in the toilet and just BUSTED OUT LAUGHING to myself!! I realized that this "was" (not is) my life! But "is" many other's lives or at least an aspect of it. Let me enlighten you folks - we drag around poop balls daily!! I mean really, think about it...when we have bad self talk whether directly or indirectly (about us or about our outside circumstance/situation) we ARE DROPPING POOP BALLS on ourselves!

When this hit me I was like, I gotta blog this! Do you keep finding or giving yourself poop balls? It has been so liberating and freeing to be rid of my poop balls, and you too can be rid of yours.

Yes, we live in a very small space with 2 dogs, the kids are grown and on their own, yea! But I am so very thankful, even when my ego may try to butt in, that I am no longer homeless or trying to fight winter in an RV, lol! When my ego arises to the occasion to belittle or judge I start blessing everything in sight, no matter what it looks like. I Am That. I love this statement as it reminds me who I really am and also brings my mind back to the present when it has wondered off.

My quest is to help you and touch peoples lives that resonate with me. Always go by your own intuition and with what resonates for you - best advice my teacher gave me.

Yall have a Blessed Day and Blessed Life :)

Here is a pic of me and my lil girly, Rosie, ok she is actually older but a small dog still, nonetheless.

The Last Flower

My son had to do an Interpretive English essay for class and he chose the book 'The Last Flower'. Since the students email in their work, and his email is connected to mine, I got the privilege of reading it (he lives with his dad). It sung to my Soul, literally, for last weekend I devoured the 'Conversations with God 1, 2 & 3'. I love the honesty in the last paragraph as to how do we stop this insanity, as no instructions were given in the book on how we can change from this reaping of history. Alas, there is another way! Here is the essay:

After reading the story “The Last Flower” by James Thurber, there are a lot of different interpretations or themes to choose from. What most caught my eye though was one theme. History repeats itself. In the story it talks about how there was a great world war and that it destroyed civilization. Nothing was left but one flower and Human beings reverted back to their most primal state. Eventually over time though they learn and advance until the point where another great world war happens and nothing is left except for a man, a woman, and a flower. 

So in those examples it shows how life is but a cycle that repeats itself over and over again for all of eternity. From my own life I have seen examples to support my theory. In history we had a World War 1 that was catastrophic to all involved. Than about 20 years later we had another World War which was also devastating. Also there have been countless revolutionary wars from America to France, and even civil wars. History has been repeating itself from the moment it started, it is inevitable. That is what the author is trying to show people in this story.

Put very simply, a picture is worth a thousand words. That is why Mr. Thurber used sketches to portray his message rather than just tell the story in written form. He didn't want his story to be abnormally lengthy and verbose, and it didn’t have to be. With pictures he can describe exactly what he is picturing in his mind rather than try to describe it in words. In words people will think different variations of the same thing. One person’s interpretation of the details in the story could be completely different from the others. With pictures though people see exactly what he wants them to see, so everyone can imagine and see what he sees. That’s the beauty of a picture, you could try to describe a picture or an idea with as many words as possible, but none of them would measure up to the actual picture itself, it’s quite simply put, remarkable.

“The Last Flower” tells people lots about life in general and how it might affect their life as they continue to advance. It shows them how life tends to repeat itself and how people will make the same mistakes over and over again until someone realizes what they are doing. In the end of the book there is another world war and everything gets destroyed again. This shows how people made the same mistakes again and it resulted in the same events. What the book doesn’t show is how someone can figure out what they are doing and change their course of action to something else to make new events occur. That is what the author wanted the readers to get from the story by showing how no one changed and the same events happened. Albert Einstein was quoted saying”Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

I would love to start a discussion on this as for myself, after reading CwGs, I know there is another way :)

25 Core Messages ~ Conversations of God ~ Neale Donald Walsch

Here, in 1,000 words, is all that the human race needs to know in order to live the life for which it has yearned and which, despite trying for thousands of years, it has yet to produce. Carry these messages to your world:

 (1) We are all One. All things are One Thing. There is only One Thing, and all things are part of the One Thing There Is. This means that you are Divine. You are not your body, you are not your mind, and you are not your soul. You are the unique combination of all three, which comprises the Totality Of You. You are an individuation of Divinity; an expression of God on Earth.
(2) There’s enough. It is not necessary to compete for, much less fight over, your resources. All you have to do is share.
(3) There’s nothing you have to do. There is much you will do, but nothing you are required to do. God wants nothing, needs nothing, demands nothing, commands nothing.
(4) God talks to everyone, all the time. The question is not: To whom does God talk? The question is: Who listens?
(5) There are Three Basic Principles of Life: Functionality, Adaptability, andSustainability.
(6) There is no such thing as Right and Wrong, there is only What Works and What Does Not Work, given what it is you are trying to do.
(7) In the spiritual sense, there are no victims and no villains in the world, although in the human sense it appears that there surely are. Yet because you are Divine, nothing can happen against your will.
(8) No one does anything inappropriate, given their model of the world. 
(9) There is no such place as hell, and eternal damnation does not exist.
(10) Death does not exist. What you call “death” is merely a process of Re-Identification.
(11) There is no such thing as Space and Time, there is only Here and Now.
(12) Love is all there is.
(13) You are the creator of your own reality, using the Three Tools of Creation:Thought, Word, and Action.
(14) Your life has nothing to do with you. It is about everyone whose life you touch, and how you touch it.
(15) The purpose of your life is to recreate yourself anew in the next grandest version of the greatest vision ever you held about Who You Are.
(16) The moment you declare anything, everything unlike it will come into the space. This is The Law of Opposites, producing a Contextual Field within which that which you wish to express may be experienced.
(17) There is no such thing as Absolute Truth. All truth is subjective. Within this framework there are five levels of truth telling: Tell your truth to yourself about yourself; Tell your truth to yourself about another; Tell your truth about yourself to another; Tell your truth about another to another; Tell your truth to everyone about everything.
(18) The human race lives within a precise set of illusions. The Ten Illusions of Humans are: Need Exists, Failure Exists, Disunity Exists, Insufficiency Exists, Requirement Exists, Judgment Exists, Condemnation Exists, Conditionality Exists, Superiority Exists, Ignorance Exists. These illusions are meant to serve humanity, but it must learn how to use them.
(19) The Three Core Concepts of Holistic Living are Honesty, Awareness, andResponsibility. Live according to these precepts and self-anger will disappear from your life.
(20) Life functions within a Be-Do-Have paradigm. Most people have this backward,imagining that first one must “have” things in order to “do” things, thus to “be” what they wish to be. Reversing this process is the fastest way to experience mastery in living.
(21) There are Three Levels of Awareness: Hope, Faith, and Knowing. Spiritual mastery is about living from the third level.
(22) There are Five Fallacies about God that create crisis, violence, killing and war. First, the idea that God needs something. Second, the idea that God can fail to get what He needs. Third, the idea that God has separated you from Him because you have not given Him what He needs. Fourth, the idea that God still needs what He needs so badly that God now requires you, from your separated position, to give it to Him. Fifth, the idea that God will destroy you if you do not meet His requirements.
(23) There are also Five Fallacies About Life that likewise create crisis, violence, killing and war. First, the idea that human beings are separate from each other. Second, the idea that there is not enough of what human beings need to be happy. Third, the idea that in order to get the stuff of which there is not enough, human beings must compete with each other. Fourth, the idea that some human beings are better than other human beings. Fifth, the idea that it is appropriate for human beings to resolve severe differences created by all the other fallacies by killing each other.
(24) You think you are being terrorized by other people, but in truth you are being terrorized by your beliefs. Your experience of yourself and your world will shift dramatically if you adopt, collectively, the Five Steps to Peace:
Permit yourself to acknowledge that some of your old beliefs about God and about Life are no longer working.
Explore the possibility that there is something you do not fully understand about God and about Life, the understanding of which would change everything.
Announce that you are willing for new understandings of God and Life to now be brought forth, understandings that could produce a new way of life on this planet.
Courageously examine these new understandings and, if they align with your personal inner truth and knowing, enlarge your belief system to include them.
Express your life as a demonstration of your highest beliefs, rather than as a denial of them.
(25) Let there be a New Gospel for all the people of Earth: “We are all one. Ours is not a better way, ours is merely another way.”
The 1,000 words here, embraced and acted on, could change your world in a single generation.

I Am Not I Poem by Juan Ramon Jimenez

“I Am Not I”

I am not I.
                   I am this one
walking beside me whom I do not see,
whom at times I manage to visit,
and whom at other times I forget;
who remains calm and silent while I talk,
and forgives, gently, when I hate,
who walks where I am not,
who will remain standing when I die.
