Falling

Posted by Mary D'Alba (Spiritualitygirl) on Friday, July 31, 2009,

I felt myself falling -
there I go!
Too fast -
I can't grab onto anything!

Down the hole,
so far down,
the walls are passing by me,
as I feel myself going faster and faster.

My mind is screaming -
"How do I stop?"
"What will meet me at the end?"
"What's going to happen to me?"

And then I feel it -
I landed.
I open my eyes, I touch my body,
I am still here.


I stand up and dust myself off.
Maybe a few bumps or bruises,
maybe even a break,
but it can be fixed.  I am here.

I walk away,
knowing that...

You MUST

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, July 30, 2009,


You MUST be the most clever
the stronger in the bunch
the fiercest on the block
the boldest - yes, bold

You MUST be assertive
otherwise, how will the notice you?
You MUST beat out the others
otherwise, how will you be successful?

You MUST climb the ladder
You MUST reach for the ring
You MUST  cross pollinate, circle back,
assimilate, conference call, meet,
re-meet, conference call again,
uh-oh - did you leave someone off the invite list?
meet one more time...
and then start over.

You MUST...

Life

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, July 29, 2009, In : Spiritual 

Life does not follow rules
it does not know how to be predictable
as much you think you have control
Life will show you that you don't

Life does not want you to lose
nor does it want you to fail
nothing comes easy that is worth it
not everything, though, has to be hard

Life will offer different paths
your choice is only yours
People will help you on that path
or fade away with the sunlight

Life is not about material gains
because it cannot cure heartbreak
it cannot cure sickness
it is temp...

Make your heart beat

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, July 28, 2009,

Speak your truth
Say what's on your mind
but say it with kindness
so you words heal the heartbreak

Walk your talk
Do what you say you're going to do
Don't let others stand in your way
You know what's best for you

Blaze your path
You may need a chisel, fire or a shovel
but the best way to get it done
is to do it yourself

Fight your battles
and know when to lay down your sword
and walk away
Defeat does not kill you but make you stronger

Everyday, make your heart beat
feel it get stronger and st...

Karma

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, July 27, 2009, In : Spiritual 

Karma - how does it affect our lives?  The thought is that Karma is not good or bad, it just is.  Based on your actions, what you get back is what you put out there, hence, your Karma.  Actually, one of the most interesting things it mentions is that if the world understood Karma, we wouldn't have a prison system because Karma laws would take care of it.  Interesting thought, isn't it?

Usually, though, we think of Karma negatively.  John Lennon said "Instant Karma is going to get you - gonna...
