(The conclusion of “In The Breaking” )
Another walk I took recently days after my emotional release, not really wanting to walk that day but nonetheless I did go. I had felt a bit down earlier with the weight of my responsibilities of my Life so heavy upon my shoulders. All I honestly wanted was to lay on the couch and veg. Worse thing you can do when you feel blue, I know!
Pacing back and forth in my kitchen, mumbling to myself … I CAN DO THIS! … I forcibly made myself open the front door and walk through it. Now, this IS the most difficult step to make when you don’t feel like taking a walk or for that matter, going anywhere. That first step out the door was the best thing I did for me that day!
Warmth, sunshine, flowers, fresh air my senses all took in as I walked down our driveway headed towards Como Lake Park. As my feet took to a rhythm they wanted I smiled and thanked myself for forcing me out the door. Along the way I decided to whip out my cellphone to see what I could capture and wouldn’t you know I did get some unique images.
I show you me below, smirking under those big sunglasses and with a very intriguing symbol reflecting from my phone to my vest. In looking closer, I see a circle with a purple symbol that could be interpreted as a flower in bloom. Both symbols hold great meaning to me for I just recently came “full circle” regarding an extremely painful old wound and since I am so connected with Mother, I suppose you could say I have been claimed to be the “Heart of Flowers”.
The next few words I write very quietly and with great reverence. Mother clearly showed me with the circular symbol on my Heart that yes I really have come full circle in this aspect of my Life. I trust Her. She never has let me down or misled me. Also, in writing “In The Breaking” I had no idea what flower photograph to match with that post. As I was scrolling through the Crocuses I captured yesterday, the “purple” Crocuses jumped out at me which is my signal to include it in the post I am working on. I still had no clue as to the link between the Crocuses I was editing and the symbol on my vest. During the editing process the final piece to the puzzle fell into place. For in the editing, I saw that the shape and color, how I captured these Crocuses, are the exact same shape and color of the symbol that was reflected on my chest. That is when my mouth flew wide open in shock.
Yes, All is truly connected if we have the eyes to see and a Heart that understands.
As for my hair it was very windy and so I present to you my “glowing hair”. The sun was behind me and in attempting to SEE my phone I peered over my sunglasses … to no avail for I still could not see …. and laughing I said “What the heck! Just take a picture!” and so I did. Here I am smirking like a fool but I ask you do I care? Heck NO!
*Pause for reflection ….*
My eyes were pulled several times during that special walk and each time they were, out my phone came. The next few images are those very scenes I saw as I took my walk. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did and I HOPE I am beginning to impress upon all of you to get outdoors and enjoy Mother! Am I the only one who is walking these days? Well? …
