Stigma of a Cat

halfcrow-2

Well, this picture is not perfect.  I have to question if it is supposed to be, because I get mixed readings on that.  For starts, it is a crow, not a raven.  This lyric first jumped into my head yesterday, and while the initial rhyme is open to interpretation, I have a certain idea in mind, particularly to encourage a persistent, calm mood and attitude: for understanding behavior (including our own).

Things are not always what they seem to be.  Depression, anxiety, mania and stigma can revert to a calm mood – and healthy understanding, when we ground ourselves, and simply take a slightly different perspective. To do this, often we must ground our decisions about events, people and mental health in the most concrete way we can find.  Make it available.  Do research if necessary. Find out what we can.  From one angle, life can be depressing or bring unreal, anxious, condemning thoughts.  From a perspective grounded in another way – away from negative judgement, we can find calm – even peace.  The thing is: sometimes the most unexpected truths will change our perspective on events and personalities.  Often these truths are quite available.  They may even present themselves.  These details, can be observed when we stretch out.  They can be described by science (sometimes found on google!) and also just by asking another person.

Diversify our perspectives, and find peace in the truths that exist in life and nature. Sometimes these truths are just a slight stretch out of our reach.  We just have to look, and listen hard enough.  Feel the big picture, or identify the details that can help us have a calm, optimistic attitude.  The animals here represent parts of the human spirit, and also the very creatures that exist.

Volatile smile that makes us wild,

Raven flies over all those miles,

Fast cat catches up to the light,

Smile again when we feel alright,

Reason for moods can be as plain as day,

Other times they are hidden far away,

Sometimes the truth is really out of sight,

The cat chased the raven into the night,

Here’s the point, with no intentional guile,

To explain the facts behind this strange style,

If you stay calm you’ll gain the best insight,

Find understanding when the time is right,

These things that happen may seem to be planned,

When stars line up, it’s not a slight of hand,

Events in our life, all the things we say,

Are sure to be lined up in this same way,

Wake up to see the cat beside feathers,

Patience for truth is in need of tethers,

Mystic bird breaks free of the night and day,

Mocks the cat and stigma has gone away

This is a living document on this website.  Updates are most likely to occur within the next month.  I post this today, as it is fresh, but I may like to improve it as I continue to think on these topics.  Happy New Year!  Hope you find health and peace.

Voice of a Loon

2006_087

When you learn that the world is mystical,

Dealing with science creates enigma,

Without worries, life may seem whimsical,

But creative fires smoke with stigma,

When praise embraces the smudge of the cloud,

We are enabled to feel clean and proud,

A message may come through quiet or loud,

Yet others must strain to get past the shroud,

Through morning fog we hear the crying loon,

Like songs we hear meaning behind the tune,

Just a bird or does it join in your dream?

Life and art may change, seen through rising steam,

Advances, grandeur, the modern day’s plan,

Pure truth still taught by an ancient shaman

What’s up?  Fill the cup,

Who is hotter?  Pour the water,

Busy God is no fraud,

Do you see pain?

When you bring rain?

Off by miles, flooding trials,

Overloaded, People-goaded,

Multi-tasking, Reptile basking,

Need the sun,

So we can run,

Creatures sensing, Resource-tensing,

Overriding, Spirit-guiding,

Chance unlocks, Paradox,

Human race,

Ancient face,

What’s down? On the ground?

Who is lying?  Science trying,

People fight for what’s right?

Do you share your views?

When you win or lose?

Last in line (blog)

Sorry for so many blogs in a row.  Always trying to straighten out the mess from the last blog – even when it seems tidy to some.  It is a one-dimensional writer’s exposition that I strive to complete… on a good note.

For some circles, I have now talked about a variety of semi-forbidden topics.  Death, prayer, and spirit… Hardly fit for a scientific journal…  So how do I salvage this string of edgy, spiritual blogs?  Well of course with more of the same.  This one was in my head – kind of catchy… Hopefully it is not viewed as narcissistic.  I expect that this view and similar plans are shared by many people today – those that are concerned.  Still, it feels a bit hard to make a difference: watching it all happen (good and bad).  Then trying to play a part in keeping it healthy, creating happiness, preventing suffering – while each of us has his or her own life to live.  Yes the rhyme is directed to a far-reaching man, but this could also be a far-reaching woman.  It just rhymes better.

Simple ‘plan’ in lyrics here, but likely the most complex that faces the world today: getting ‘excess’ money and functions to be put usefully towards areas that need it – including providing the best possible scenario for those that are suffering – including ourselves.  The ‘best possible scenario’ could be determined by achieving the optimal level of co-ordinated efforts of those that are interested and involved. This would include solving problems as they arise, including poverty, disability and other areas where resources are needed.

Where’s the far reaching man?

And I can tell the plan,

Just from knowing who I am,

Where I am,

What I am,

I can tell from where I stand,

That it’s getting out of hand,

I’ve got a better plan,

It’s who I am,

Where I am,

Here’s the plan:

We form the chain and when the weather changes,

We all pitch in, at different stages,

Can you afford to help at different ranges?

Give up the extras, your heart it gauges,

Use your head,

Don’t play dead,

Don’t break your bank or back,

But instead,

Be reasonable,

Not a bleeding heart,

But a healing soul…

Start with ideas…Build a resolve…

Reach out!!!  Real in.

Reach out!!! Real in.
