Planget Quiet: Just for You

It is time to relax, take a seat and remove the head mire in plangent quiet.

So often each day is full of frenetic movement,  help given without reserve, and mindless habits such that taking a rest is uncommon.  Yet, after exiting the womb, it is common for the baby to close their eyes and rest. Be like a baby for now; rest. Restore your mind and body.  Take a moment, right now, and relax and rest. Quiet, please.

Plangent quiet could be an oxymoron, a truly extreme juxtaposition of words. But, it this post, it is meant to remind you to relax in the place where you are right now. Delaying is not optional unless it  would thrust you into danger; then use caution but when you are safe, relax in the quiet. Injury to yourself or others is not the intent, but what is is the directive to safely take a moment to rest.

The adjective plangent means resounding loudly. Adding the word quiet to plangent implies a deliberate, resounding intention to be still and bask in the self-need for quiet for a moment. Take a few minutes then to kindle the spirit of hope, charity, love and passion-let it move into your being and cast out activity, worry, sadness, doubt, fear.

Be still, be quiet and contemplate you.

“The sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.” ~Carl G. Jung

Let there be HOPE on Earth

Let there be hope, peace, harmony, unity and joy on earth and let it begin with me and you.  This is the season to celebrate and anticipate the coming year. Share with me the spirit of hope, starting today. With hope and faith ALL things are possible. Without hope, base natures emerge such as fear, despair,  competition or selfishness. Make it your today resolution to begin each day expectant and full of hope.

Let hope abound!  Fill you mind with joy. Promote harmony and live in a space of unity with all. Accept peace. Protect the earth.

It is our responsibility to care, to care with a spiritual heart each and every day. Not just now, as a seasonal expectation, but day-by-day and heart-to-heart.  Touch that place within you that is filled with compassion and expression.  Dip deep into your well of inner riches and share those gifts with others who have yet to discover their gold mine treasures. Patiently accept each test and difficulty for each contains a lesson for growth. And banish all thoughts of misery, for there is always hope.

“The important thing is not that we can live

on hope alone, but that life is not worth living without it.” ~ Harvey Milk

Embrace every second with hope.

Cling to the truth that we -you and I – can be a beacon of hope.

Let there be hope on earth, let it begin now.
