Poignant Anecdote’s


Be in the Present and enjoy the Present


Present re, the moment of now.

Present re, a gift.


We are often told to “live in the moment of now”


Many of us find this very difficult, because we are all planning or looking to the future in our attempt to influence events and bring our desired experience to the soonest juncture.  Unfortunately this keeps us very much in our head, very focused on our future desires and blinkers us to the wonderful thing all around us that we can enjoy in the moment of now.


Being in the moment of now happens when we are in our heart.  When we are in our heart we fully appreciate all the wonderful gifts the Cosmos constantly presents to us.  Which in turn enlightens us to new possibilities that are often different and far superior to our original desires. 


Yield to Yield (thank you Alison Knox, Everyday Angels)


Yield re, to concede.

Yield re, quantity of harvest.


My understanding of to “Yield” is much different than to “Surrender”. 


Surrender for me is to give all our power, dignity and control to another.  To yield for me is something that we measure and agree which enables us to retain some power, dignity and control.


All too often we feel that to let go when we are locked in conflict with someone, is to lose.  This I believe is the case when we surrender, however when we yield it is empowering to us and the other and can become a win, win situation.


Reflect and Reflect


Reflect re, mirror.

Reflect re, go within to ponder.


We are all very aware that we reflect, flaws and weaknesses on behalf of others to assist and enlighten them as we dance the game of life together.  However we tend to forget that the people we reflect to are doing exactly the same for us.


So please when you are aware that you are highlighting something for someone, look within because they are highlighting the same thing for you.
