Living a Conscious Life

Don’t become what has been done to you. Our animals show us time and time again how they exemplify this act. When I lie down at night and my head rests upon my pillow, moments before I drift off to sleep, I review the events of my day.  When there are those days, that leave you restless because words of hurt were directed at you, that often leave you tossing and turning.  Intruding upon your minds peace.

I wrestle with the thoughts but work at not denying myself the anger that another man or woman may have caused intentional harm my way. I ask myself, how did I respond to their anger directed at me?  Did I respond with respect and with love? Did I respect and love myself thru and after their rude intentions? I ask myself how am I contributing to this cycle? What can I do differently?

Because at the end of the day, it is me I have to live with, in conscience, in sleep, in the mirror, and within the heart of my soul. So, no matter how often I continue to be betrayed and hurt by men and/or women that pass thru my journey of life, the one wish I have for my life, is that I don’t become one of them. That I remain humble, accountable to myself,  to others, and continue to live life respecting & loving those around me.

    • Glad you enjoyed it. 🙂 I don’t live on the farm, but I rent a barn where I keep my horses, where I self care for them. So you might say I almost live there, I am there often enough. :-).

    • It looks like you live in Europe and love photography. 🙂 Very interesting pictures and stories. Can’t beat the photos of the landscape, the buildings, bridges and countryside of Europe.

      • Yes, at the moment I am cruising Europe in my own way adventurously. From time to time I do travel to some places in search of how life is treating other, not so much politically – but still important to listen about it. I love meeting people and listen to their stories. And I love each and every old doors and gates I come across, I take pictures of some of them – they all have a story to tell, if only they could speak. Europe is a beautiful continent. I have been to USA and I need to go on a trail back again one day.
