Life is short and life is precious. I will never, ever understand why some people choose to live a life filled with anger and hatred.
We’ve all known these people, the ones who go to great lengths to foist their anger and hatred on others, while claiming when you might call them on it, that you are the angry person. Anger breeds anger, by its very energy emitted by others; it is a contagious, toxic thought form that permeates people and relationships, replacing loving thought with angry thought, filling up light filled spaces with darkness.
My experience with angry people is that that they carry baggage from the past that they can’t seem to let go of, even when they claim they have.
Forgiveness is the antidote to anger. Love is the antidote to fear. Be kind to one another… It is the root of compassion and the foundation of love for all beings.
It is never too late… I remind myself often of these words, by Louise Hay:
“My life is just beginning, and I love it. So many wonderful opportunities are on the horizon.”
– Louise L. Hay
Age is irrelevant… Every day we are faced with changes and opportunities. Every day is a new beginning. Every day is a change to evolve, to grow, to learn and to make a difference in the world.
Be the light you want to see…
What happens when relationships no longer serves the greater good in our lives? Sometimes we are able to extricate ourselves from those relationships in an easy manner, and other times those relationships will end with drama and pain.
But, even when a relationship ends with drama and pain, there is a still a way to redeem that rough ending, by making the choice to wish the other person well in the future. It’s not always easy to feel that way after your feelings have been hurt, but, I guarantee it is a much healthier way to move on, than carrying about anger, hurt and pain.
Anger, hurt and pain over failed relationships can drag us down. Holding on to grudges create toxic energy in our bodies that can manifest in a host of different physical and emotional symptoms. Continue reading
A simple affirmation for today… For every day:
May my work be filled with integrity and be a source of good for others.
In this mindset… There is grace.
The Blue Wave Art Gallery and Ovedia in Amesbury, Massachusetts are both featuring my fine art photography in a “reflections” themed body of small works focused on a series of work from summer 2016.
Blue Wave Art Gallery offers a range of cultural events in the North Shore region bringing forward new ideas in art, music and innovation to the town of Amesbury. Blue Wave proudly exhibits the works of both established and emerging artists, and the gallery space provides a live stage for local musicians. And, finally, we hold art classes and lectures on a regular, monthly basis. Please email Gallery Director, Asia Scudder to purchase any of the works displayed below.
Ovedia is a lovely chocolaterie and espresso bar located in the heart of historic Amesbury, just around the corner from the Blue Wave Art Gallery.
Reflections on the River captures the timeless essence of the history of wooden boat building in Amesbury, Massachusetts and intersects that history with views of reflections caught in the motion of the waters of the Merrimack River. Continue reading
I am reminded this morning of this quote from Louise Hay:
“This year is like no other year I have ever lived before.” – Louise L. Hay
There feels as if a great darkness has descended upon us and we are trapped there, penned in, with little route for escape. The darkness will hold us captive unless we find our way out into the light through whatever openings we can find throughout our daily lives.
We are the master’s of our own lives. We make the choices of our own destiny. Let us find the light where we can and rise out of the darkness not giving power to the forces that wish to hold us down. The darkness must not win. Find your empowerment where you can, and let that guide you.
