Big Blue Ball

Makes you wonder why ... petty thievery.

Someone stole my children's big blue ball from our snow-filled backyard. The wind had pushed it over to the corner of the yard close to the gate. Even with all the snow raising the ball higher than usual off the ground, the thief would have still needed to reach quite a bit over the fence to steal the ball.

And I highly doubt that it was one of the neighbourhood cats that was the bandit.

Sigh ... what has this world come to?

When change is necessary

Sometimes we are faced with difficult situations in life, when we know that things are just not right ... not at all what we want. These things oftentimes make us very unhappy ... even downright miserable.

How does one know when enough is enough? Don't compromise or throw away your integrity. Don't sell your soul. It's not worth it. You and your feelings and thoughts are more valuable than you are allowing them to be ...

Take the risk, make the choice, and walk away. Rid yourself of this negativity and you will see ... the universe doesn't like voids and because you've made the choice that is true to your heart and in your gut, your life will again fill with light.

The Prostitute Archetype
Caroline Myss

None of us thinks kindly of the term 'prostitute,' and yet from this archetype we learn the great gift of never again having to compromise our body, mind, or spirit. You may have already reached the point in which the Prostitute has become a mature part of yourself that circles you with a strong vibrational field that says, "Not for sale."

The Prostitute archetype engages lessons in the sale or negotiation of one's integrity or spirit due to fears of physical survival or for financial gain. It activates the aspects of the unconscious that are related to seduction and control, whereby you are as capable of buying a controlling interest in another person as you are of selling your own power. Prostitution should be understood as the selling or selling out of your talents, ideas, and any other expression of the self. The core learning of the Prostitute relates to the need to birth and refine self-esteem and self-respect.

We prostitute ourselves when we sell our bodies or minds for money or when we compromise our morals and ethics for financial gain. That may include remaining in a marriage or job that endangers our well being for reasons of financial security.

Why don't more men dance?

Sorry folks ... only noticed tonight while making a template change on this blog that oops, it's been quite the while since my last post. It's not that I don't have lots to write about, it's just that I've been leaving all these cool thoughts where they originate ... in my head. Not a place that is easily accessible to you, right?

Well, here's my thought of the day. Why don't more men dance? We women just simply adore it.

Tonight, I went blues/swing dancing where there was lots of fun physical communication going on, and depending on the song, some pretty interesting and intimate moments, including holding each other close. Don't get me wrong, I'm not talking about sexual intimacy (though some dancers do choose to take it to this level), I'm talking about "let's trust each other and just enjoy the moment" type of intimacy. Top it off with "dance etiquette" that says it's rude to refuse a dance.

C'mon fellas, whatcha waiting for?
