Nicely stated. I always liked the quote from the Dr. Strange movie, "You can't beat a river into submission. You must learn to use it's power as your own."

It's like surfing. You just can't go out into the ocean and faith, power, or think your way into surfing. You have to gain understanding by practicing harmony with each wave you attempt to ride. Through practice we learn what to do and what not to do to reach our goal of wave riding.

Be like water, indeed.

Ha, I just watched that movie last week. It was a fun one.

Agreed, Mike! I enjoyed the water analogy. We are mostly water anyway, so we might as well start acting like it!

Indeed Amy San ..Indeed, Yet a lot of Men take the fire and earth stand due to ego etc . Water will extinguish Fire and erode stone, Each will counter the other in some form or another, It just depends on how you use each of them and what you are confronted with..In any given situation, You cannot draw much water with a fork but you can with a spoon :)

Greetings Each Bows

It has been some time since I posted anything mostly due to being put in a pretty uncomfortable position. The last 12 weeks as been a real trial of wisdom strength compassion patience and having to put up with a lot of negative energy for emotional Blackmail.

Extended family in South Africa decide to emigrate back here to the UK. The plan they had was not much of a plan .They were staying in a B&B not from where I live. They then tell me they have to move out by 29th of March , with nowhere to go we take them in so we have 7 people living in a 2 bed apartment. It then transpires that the two childrren 4&2 have no structure AT ALL and begin to systematically destroy my house.

The father does nothing in the way of correction regarding the boys behaviour and the Mother is buried in her phone all day. No interaction with the children.

This pretty constant all day and most of the evening. I notice that some of the boys behaviour has symptons of possible autism .

To cut a long story short and me losing my temper on tree occasions due to complete arrogance and a couldn't care less passive aggresive monocoddling attitude . I am told to be patient tho they understand that I have difficulties with my PTSD . The PTSD is not the problem I say. The bloody mindness of non cooperative parents is the problem . Anyway they have moved out and I am claiming my sanity back.

Whats gets me is I did my level best to help give advice on specialist help for the boys yet I felt my kindness was thrown back in my face. That may not be fact but that is how I was made to feel.

Within tree days of leaving they are already getting complaints about noise from the children. The flat they are in is not really suitable a ground floor one would have been better, didnt even show his wife just went ahead and signed up...Utter madness lol

The long and short of it is.....Being a Jedi has helped me get throw this Mental strength and as some Tao philosophy states Just be kind regardless of what is thrown at you as you can have no fear of reprisals

Greetings Each

It is fair to say..That nothing in ones life will be more troublesome than one's own troubled thoughts :)

Correct often times our own thoughts are the most difficult things we will face it's more important that you stand strong. We all weaver but what makes a Warrior is that he can lay part of his personal burden on the shields of others. After all it is all of our sheild that make up the wall. We have you brother!

Found this on a post I did on FB back in 2011
I do like it

who I am

Eagle and Wolf are my power animals.. one on the earth, one in the heavens and my physical manifestation in between. Connecting with them helps me realize my wild and natural side. There are so many aspects to me and so many sources of truth. One day it is my eagle the next day it is the man who empties my bins.

Sometimes when the answers don't come
We really just need to ask the questions

and walk forward in the direction of our heart

and in these quiet steps we hear the answers

from the whispering wind,

from the soil beneath our feet

from the flickering flames of fire,

from the gentle trickle of water in a stream,

from down deep inside,

from a stranger on the street,

sometimes from places we would never expect

and answers come not because

some "expert" says them

but because truth resonates in our heart.

Life is not milestones

Life is a journey

it is not doing, it is being

not fighting the flow of life, but going with the flow

Some steps are in the light of day,

Some in the dark of night.

Believe in yourself always

Be not afraid.

I've added a couple of bits of my own earth,fire and water. The elements are so important in my view.
