Butterfly Beatitudes by linaji

-thou shalt enjoy each and every day no matter what the weather may be

-thou shalt love thy neighbor as if they were just becoming a butterfly, even if they have a cocoon complex

-thou shalt enjoy the flight of the bumble bee too, they make honey not war

-thou shalt pay attention to thine own stinkin thinking and turn your gaze (focus) toward something (like butterflies) that feels good

-thou shalt enjoy your life here as if you could count on getting everything you
desire. (fake it till you make it)

_thou shalt give thyself much praise throughout the day and not expect anyone else to (you be the caretaker of you)

_thou shalt eat every morsel of your chosen meal with happiness and acceptance and not demean your choices of food in any way

-thou shalt keep your view to your own garden and tend to it with gusto and brevity, for when you do others will follow the butterfly to your doorstep and will be ready to ask … “how did you grow this much joy?”

I am artist always becoming…
Endless ideas pull me forward towards endless creation.

    Yes we are our thoughts, therefore best not think down on self,
    think the best of others for who they are, and be mindful
    spiritually in a grounded way.
