MY EXPERIENCES WITH CREATING ABUNDANCE — Use things to help not hinder yourself.

Years ago a ‘friend’ of mine was trying to ‘get something’ on me to use to gain their own ends. I felt betrayed and frightened and angry until one day I realized my standards were higher than hers. It struck me that if I lived under my own scrutiny, I didn’t have anything to worry about.

It worked beautifully. I could relax and go in my own direction.

Have you ever found something very good came from a challenging situation?

Today

“I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that”
Martin Luther King Jr.

This quote is not entirely by MLK. See here.

Travel Japan — Byodo-in Temple

After visiting Fushimi Inari Shrine and getting all energized, I traveled to Byodo-in Temple.

Just now I looked it up online and found there is a half size replica temple on the island of Ohau. I’ll have to see it some time when I am on Ohau.

The temple in Japan, is a World Heritage site, a relic of the Heian period (800 to 1180 A.D.). It is built without nails under Chinese influence. It is meant to look like a phoenix landing at the water with his wings outstretched.

I took this picture from the side. To the right is the ‘tail’ of the phoenix and to the left his head.

This is taken facing the phoenix.

Turning to my right, I can fit in a shot of the phoenix’s elaborate, outstretched wing.

It was inspiring. This was one man’s chapel. What a beautiful place to meditate!

This tree stood on the property.

The Japanese like to prune their trees so they narrow toward the top to increase the sense of perspective.

Thank you for looking.

A day to be grateful – my prayers go to all the earth and the people affected by the earthquake and tsunami.

I’m grateful that there wasn’t more damage here in Hawaii, and for calls and messages of concern. It’s a bittersweet Feel Good Friday. Sad, and yet the loving is brought very present.

Thank you all. Bless us all.

So many good things happened this week.

First, I got to spend a long weekend with my son in Honolulu. It was excellent and I had cheesecake too.

Second, I received this beautiful necklace as a gift from Deci at Gem Trails. I think it’s so beautiful and I love the clasp as much as the butterfly beads.

Third, Jen at Hamster Central is preparing for a solo exhibition in Japan. She sent me one of her postcard announcements. You can see a picture of it here. I love faces and I love it.

Fourth,  I got myself to the beach today to exercise and a lady gave me this.

She said, she picks up heart shaped things and this coral heart was for me. Is this a good day or what?

What makes me happy today? Well I get to go to the beach and jog a little and crochet, then I go to an art  group and work on the cover for my novel.

I finished my granddaughter’s zebra blanket and will mail it off in time for her birthday.

All my Christmas stuff is packed away, (I know), and I even mended the wise man’s hand and Santa’s foot and an angel that had been broken for years. So what could be better? Well, actually how about a 6 foot tall pop up tree. You open it out and a fully decorated tree pops up. Then it folds flat to put it away.

Lastly, I’ve been wanting to give back something and last Wednesday I started writing a series of posts about creating abundance. It’s scary because I am so exposed. It’s what I have to share with the world. Gee, I hope the posts will be easier to write than this is.

Have your best Friday ever!

Truth is, I was being weighed down by feelings of inadequacy. I felt too negative to post. Now, I just did a little get myself back together exercise I do, and I realize I was thinking that being negative is a catastrophe. As if my mother has her head in a guillotine and the blade will fall and cut off her head if I am bad.

And then I grouse at dh and judge my neighbors and myself and put pressure on myself to be perfect.

Luckily, my mother is safe. She died years ago.

And lucky, I forgive myself and realize, I am a spiritual being having a human experience and we humans do this stuff. This one does anyway.

So, no outer circumstances have changed, yet the world seems sunny again and I’m off to our local Cherry Blossom festival.

My feel good Friday a day late, not a dollar short, I hope.

Have your best weekend ever.
