First of all I would like to apologize for my rude out burst. Although, I must say, Marcel understood me well, and I appreciate his charming responses.
No need to say, but, I can get very riled up by some things that tip the scales for me, some times---not often-- but when I do, I forget to hold myself from blowing my gale force ice cold winds; Mistral.
Someone used to call me The Hurricane of Love—I liked that---at least he knew that behind my anger there is this desire to reveal Something Genuine that comes from Light and Truth in some way or other. My heart would wish to share, via my words, authentic insights that have been tried, tested and proven to be the real glimpses of God’s Grace and Its Light of Holy Living Presence that is in all things. Certainly not to bring harm or hurt through my words.
although I shared my anger, I will never use any words that would mislead or delude others— When I see that being done, then I struggle mightily to hold back my (what used to be called in the old days) righteous indignation.
Now, I know I raised a little hell here---but my intentions were noble, and that I know for myself, so my heart rests easy—or as the wise man Shakespeare said “to thine own self be true”—well, that I am--- I just need to state my points without offending (next time my wrath is so provoked).
I think I have mentioned this quote before, but, I need to really say this to MY Self, it is a biblical quote that I have always loved, It rings of Great Truth to me--- but obviously it is a quote I have not always adhered to: "How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who publish peace, who bring good tidings, who publish salvation, who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!" Isaiah 52:7
Here is the list of things I love: Those who have respect for themselves, which in turn is naturally a respect for others---reason being; that God and our self, each self, are one Self, thus any ‘other self’ is My Self. ( I think Lucy said that to me here, and she is right). The Real Identity is This One Holy Light that Is Being this Awareness I Am. So, there you go. No excuses on that one. Then, may I add to my list here these things that I think I should aspire to: Consistent moral standards, wholesome inclinations, self-control, an affirmative attitude towards life, enthusiasm and enough poise to make me immune to insult. I will not ever bow down to bitterness, retaliation, or revenge—a little puffed up anger, but not those. I re avow that my thinking and living and speaking is to be kind, tolerant, generous, considerate, honest and adaptable. And all the while I must stay true to my private ideals and not to lose sight of this Grace of This Christ Child Within that has found me and leads me.
Honest helpfulness begins so deep down inside that when it flows out into action, it glorifies everything we do. It certainly does not make others feel bad, or hurt. It will make others feel uplifted, relieved, refreshed, nurtured, safe in some way. I know that those who are honestly living in the Light of God’s Love and have truly put their ‘ego’ aside and really live in flow of oneness, those are the rare and beautiful souls who can make us better citizens of the universe just by being themselves.
I love cats, puppies, Christmas, Birthdays, the little giggle of a three year old, loving tears, holy grateful tears, gentle eyes, holding hands, kindness, thoughtfulness, graciousness, beauty of home, hearth, dinner with loved ones, cool breezes on summer nights, clean linens, soft cuddley familar warm bed, bliss, bliss, and such sweet bliss for so many things, tender, gentle love, sounds, color and time, years gone by, Blessed Life and life, life, bountiful, marvelous life which includes all the sweet sentimental dear and special things anyone with heart will love.
