sometimes (more than likely all the time) what we focus on becomes bigger

I just had a friends husband die very quickly …
one day he was a vibrant being and the next he is now gone (all within 3 weeks of diagnose) and we shall have a memorial tomorrow.

I know he carried alot of anxiety about life, he was worried life was not fair and that things were getting worse, people were not how they ‘used to be’.

However, I truly do not believe in any kind of death and that life after life is the journey I am living.

Sometimes what we focus on to fret about and worry about can simply … kill us.

Summer is here to remind us to LIVE LIVE LIVE.

    OH my love,

    your words are exactly what I needed to read right now,
    I simply can’t worry, worry, worry…I can’t change anything with my worry…
    a stunning image that leaves me thinking still and beauty….

    thank you
    thank you xoxoxoxoxoxo

  • I mean this for all who focus on what they don’t like. There is so much power in our thinking. We don’t seem, myself big time included, to know this untill we see it effect our bodies, our well being.
    Some darling heart need a cause to feel they are doing what to relieve the feeling of being out of control here in our journey.
    You know what happened yesterday, I tripped went flying and I began to laugh. I tell you the answer to all my fretting became clear… ask… talk…
    anyway that is bloggy stuff but today is such a new day. I am lucky my signs are no longer illness… my signs are a kick in the arse. So my life has improved dramaticly.
    It never feels good to think that we can’t control others but it remains the truth.
    We cannot….
    So here I am today feeling connected to Source and all this stuff around feels like a bit of a misquote bite.. even the end of the world stuff I feel is happening … the lies of 9/11 on and on and on…
    Right now here I am, it is a most amazing day, and I shall live my life free of fret… and loving you all the while.. xoxooxox

    Dear dear Lina, what a perfectly beautiful image. Was the sudden death of your friend’s husband a contributory factor in teh image. I get the impression of travel – through time, space and dimension.

  • Yes it was Andrew,
    These people mean a great deal to me via their kindness when I was a stranger in a strange land almost 3 years ago when I started working at the boat club.
    They invited me to Thanksgiving when I had no one and Mike was always smiling.
    He was in the real estate business and that crashed bad and their whole world came crashing down or so it seemed….
    My heart is heavy for his wife, she is a love and more love .
    Thank you for asking Andrew, I felt compelled to work on this the past few days.

  • also… I have been feeling the focus of ill will and anger here on RB… I felt I needed to give these kind of details on the side bar. Conscious life here on this plane of existence sometimes feels tough till we allow the sun in once again and again.. ad infinitum
