the gypsies' journey...

we all are gypsies of a sort wandering traveling through this life other lives space and time here there and yon on roads less traveled - following the path of the sun and the trail of the stars to worlds known and unknown from yesterday and today into tomorrow -

this is a written and visual journal of my own travels - imagined and/or real -
imagined and/or real - a STREAMOFCONSCIOUSNESS telling of my own personal thoughts feelings experiences - interspersed with words and images of others - with things defined by most as PARAnormal which - for me - all my life - have been PERFECTLYnormal -

SO come along with me and we'll dance among the stars under the sun and over the moon - we'll share our stories around the campfire - together -

THE GYPSYWOMANWORLD

My photo
A...WOMAN IN MOTION WITH HAIR AS DARK AS NIGHT HER EYES WERE LIKE THAT OF A CAT IN THE DARK... SHE WAS A GYPSYWOMAN... she danced round and round... from the fire her face was all aglow... she was dancing... dancing... waiting for the RISING SUN... loving caring relationships are like THE RISING SUN...we are nourished by their warmth...we are energized by their strength...we grow in their light...we find shelter and solace there...they are our sanctuary... born in the sign of the sun, i am a true LEO-love the sun and its hot orange red fire-passionate in and about everything i do-i believe in instant chemistry charisma love/lust at first sight-in the magic of the eyes and the beauty of the soul-in the instant recognition familiarity in meeting someone from a past life and in the knowledge that we might meet in a future life-i believe that we are each ageless and flawless-i believe in the beauty of the moment-the whisper of yesterday-the hope of tomorrow-the power of forgiveness for even ourselves-the absolute and total beauty of love---[credit to brian hyland and curtis mayfield]

as you embrace...


As you embrace the present
and become one with it
and merge with it,
you will experience a fire, a glow,
a sparkle of ecstasy 
throbbing in every sentient being.
As you begin to experience 
this exultation of spirit
in everything that is alive
as you become intimate with it,
joy will be born within you,
and you will drop 
the terrible burdens of defensiveness,
resentment, and hurtfulness
...
then you will become
lighthearted, 
carefree, 
joyous
and 
free.

Marlene said...

What wonderful freedom it would be to think and embrace only the present...if we could forget at will the past and future worries..
I have yet to learn how to do this...

Nancy said...

Dear Jenean:

Hope you are well. The freedom Chopra explains is a priceless one but to experience it is another story.

Glad to see your work again.

Joy always,
Susan

I have caught glimpses of this enlightened realm. I have felt the sunshine within, experiencing life around me as it is and loving just being a part of it. Then it ends, such is being human, a struggle to remain an observer to the here and now while finding grace in it all, but what a wonderful place to visit.
