Even if we were to sit perfectly still, calm and serene, at peace, time would continue to tick on.  Seconds, minutes, hours, days.

             And if we struggle, stress, suffer, time also ticks on.  Seconds, minutes, hours, days.  And then, weeks into months and years.

             Clearly, part of our message is about HOW we spend those moments.

Right here,


             Mindfully, with great thought, we are able to be in our time, not merely spend it.  While simultaneously, seeing what is ahead and honoring what has gone by.

             But also, we are being reminded that time just is.  It moves, it goes, it ticks along.  If we waste* it, it’s gone anyway.

*And by “wasting” I don’t mean that we’ve been reading a good book or watching the sun set, I mean by spending more hours at work than with family.  Or by spending precious moments in complaint or rage, when we could easily have used those hours to express our joy and care.

             Taking “time” to find blessings and gifts and a positive focus, can help our lessons, our healing, and every step of our journey.

             On the card altar, where I was directed for this draw, is another way to utilize our valuable seconds, minutes, hours.

heart and soul messages

“Bliss  ~

We cannot find total bliss in this world, but we can preview it, and even, at times, feel overwhelmed with joy.

This can be accomplished by accepting the universal truth that the origin of All is Love.”

             To which I would add:

when we express our pleasure instead of our disdain, we are more likely to share happiness.  It’s worth our time to try.

  1. Holy freakin’ crap. I can’t even imagine how much of that guy’s life has been spent with a bow in his hands. My husband started laughing at the end and said, “How in hell do you even practice something like that?!” Freaking awesome.

    I sent that link to my son. I will probably regret it, as he put a new, adult sized bow on his Christmas list. Which no one got him, since he’s away at college most of the year and he only plays with it off and on, not competes or hunts with it. (Kinda like his throwing knives. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a throwing knife that slid flat into the grass?) Boys and their toys. But I know he’ll really enjoy that video, so I sent it anyway. We moms are that way.
