Synchronicity… A philosophical concept first described by Carl Jung, a Swiss psychologist in the 1920’s it is a term that has had great meaning in my life lately. Funny in a way as it brings me back to the one who coined the term in a very unique way. I suppose it was meant to be in my education and evolution that I would be at this point in time sharing thoughts about synchronicity and some of my experiences with the concept.

. It is only natural that for my own personal evolution, Alchemy is a part of my path spiritually. It is quite a gift that my time spent in the blog world in reading so many great blogs has been a treasure of knowledge shared both from the writers and those that inspire them and the knowledge over the ages that they are aware of and in turn make the rest of us aware of. It is quite synchronistic that I started blogging to share my thoughts and become a better writer and in doing so have added exponentially to my own spiritual growth and evolution by becoming part of a community of writers of which many are on a path of spiritual growth and evolution as well. I learn from every writer something that helps me become a better human being than I was before I read what they shared! Thank you all for sharing!

I thought I would share a treasure and a piece of ancient knowledge that has influenced many and been quoted in part by many that perhaps are not even aware of where that quote came from. I had not even heard of the Emerald Tablet yet have many times heard the quote; “That which is below is like that which is above & that which is above is like that which is below” I had the belief that was a quote from the Bible.. You learn something new every day. I also learned that Carl Jung was believed to have fallen asleep on the Emerald Tablet and even more interestingly Sir Isaac Newton translated it and studied it in depth. Isaac Newton was also one of the most known Alchemists of all time another intriguing fact I was unaware of until I read about the Emerald Tablet. It is his translation I choose to share the excerpt I share is from Wikipedia.

Newton’s translation
A translation by Isaac Newton is found among his alchemical papers that are currently housed in King’s College Library, Cambridge University.[8]
1. Tis true without lying, certain & most true.
2. That which is below is like that which is above & that which is above is like that which is below to do the miracles of one only thing
3. And as all things have been & arose from one by the mediation of one: so all things have their birth from this one thing by adaptation.
4. The Sun is its father, the moon its mother, the wind hath carried it in its belly, the earth is its nurse.
5. The father of all perfection in the whole world is here.
6. Its force or power is entire if it be converted into earth.
7. Separate thou the earth from the fire, the subtle from the gross sweetly with great industry.
8. It ascends from the earth to the heaven & again it descends to the earth & receives the force of things superior & inferior.
9. By this means you shall have the glory of the whole world
10. & thereby all obscurity shall fly from you.
11. Its force is above all force. For it vanquishes every subtle thing & penetrates every solid thing.
12. So was the world created.
13. From this are & do come admirable adaptations whereof the means (or process) is here in this. Hence I am called Hermes Trismegist, having the three parts of the philosophy of the whole world
14. That which I have said of the operation of the Sun is accomplished & ended.

– Meditation and Alchemy are two subjects I have a great interest in on a spiritual level, embracing both Eastern and Western Philosophies It was a gift to go off the grid for a few days and sit in nature and just be with the natural world and contemplate as well as meditate after having learned about and read this piece of mystical writing shared with me through the world of blogging!

Singing to me… A poem


I woke up one morning, early in the spring
The grass and the trees were just turning green

The songs of the song birds surrounded me
They sang their songs so beautiful filled with joy and glee

I stood in wonder as I breathed the cool air
As I looked at the beauty everywhere

The birds singing such beautiful songs
The beat of my heart seemed to sing along

The Robin Redbreast as it flew by
Seeming to say it’s time for you to fly

A beautiful morning one day in spring
Joy to my heart did the song birds bring

Joy to my heart did the song birds bring
A beautiful morning one day in spring

I wanted to share a thought or two, I have been working on a number of projects and seem to at times be going backwards yet I suppose that sometimes is how it goes. I just wanted to share a beautiful thought as where I live today spring is definitely in the air. I so just want to take the day and go play in the park or the creek. I do have much to do however as I spent a week working on a new Linkedin profile and it seems it was a learning week. All my work was for not as I consulted with a friend who shared for my summary what I had written was not what I should share, those in the position of hiring reading those inspiring words just wouldn’t care… I am also getting ready for an art expo creating works of art trying to make them glow as expressions from my heart I choose to show.

I do however love to write and I love sharing with those who share here so I shared my thoughts this morning as I waited for the train, the first morning of the week when there was no rain, the feeling from my heart as the song birds sang!

Thank you for allowing me to share a thought, or two and for spending some of your time with me. I thank you as well for being you sharing your smiles and your love, making our world a better place for all we share it with. Thank you for being the positive change our world so needs!  Joe

 

Morning run… A poem


The still water reflecting the early morning sun

birds singing sweetly, squirrels having fun

the breeze gently blowing

a dog on a run

He sniffs then pauses

Scratches with his paws

I never could imagine what was the cause

I suppose it is his nature the natural law

I watch in wonder as he runs away

What wonders he will see, with what will he play

As he takes his run by the lake

This sunny, still, light breeze kind of day

Thank you for allowing me to share a thought or two.. A change from my usual unusual. I hope we can all share a smile and share some love making our world a better place for all we share it with.  🙂

The Park…


The young man I watch on the hill

Tumbling and rolling just for the thrill

Smiling and laughing just because he can

Oh how I the world is different for a young man

As his mother watched him with love

As he rolled to the bottom from above

The sounds of the laughter reached deep in me

As I watched them while sitting under a tree

Birds singing all around

Mixed with the laughter what a wonderful sound

Grass overgrowing needing to be mowed

Dandelions seedlings blowing in the wind reminding me of snow

The little girl running away from her aunt

Chocolate and pink stuff all over her pants

I laugh as she runs her messy red hair

My heart happy, smiling breathing the air

All taken in a moment shared on a day

Kids young and old in the park at play

 As I watched and listened I heard them sing

A song of love to nature and our hearts it brings

 Thank you for allowing me to share a thought or two, spending time outdoors and especially when there are young women and men present is always an adventure and quite fun. I had the afternoon free and chose to head to the park and share some love with nature and the community. I have to say it was a gorgeous afternoon.

 

Please share a smile share some love and help make our world a better place for all we share it with. Thank you for being the positive change in our world with all the smiles you share.

 

Love and thank you my Friend Clark Kent!


I wish to share a thought or two, I have been thinking about love, my life has been built upon love, a weak foundation? Or just a matter of piling up stones?  The truth of the matter is the latter, life’s experiences as I have traveled the journey sometimes have been to be quite frank brutal. Even as such there are many that have been through much worse.

I am a seeker of the truth for some reason it seems to be my hidden agenda, whether it is as the Stars express or a divine given mission, I am reincarnated and it is my Karma, perhaps I am just nuts. I do however know I am driven and the truth is love.

I read and view many perspectives as well as discuss and observe many different perspectives.  The most common theme for many of those perspective’s is to me only half-truths and some of them are just sugar coated crap.I do however know there are some truly gifted and special souls that have achieved and know such truth.

So today as I have been my whole life reaching for the truth knowing it is love that is built on a solid foundation. Those that are truly enlightened or share with the divine in co existence  have built a solid foundation of stone. Have your ever carried stones for a Buildings foundation? Have you observed how many sizes of buildings there are? The foundations of some are small and some rather large.

There are as many ways to find the truth of love and what is love true, unconditional love, Divine Love, and what ever depth of love you choose to find.  If as a teenager you experience what many call puppy love and experience that first rejection lets say. You felt the pain of that first break up and it devastates you and you choose to never pursue that type of love again you carried just a stone or two for your foundation. Over the years and experiences of life we choose how many stones we carry and how big the foundation we choose to build.

The truth I wish to share is this, there are no limits on the size of foundation we build and what we give, we get.  If you truly want to know the gift give the gift, share the gift’ that gift begins within, I have friends that don’t believe in the divine and use only logic and reason almost exclusively and deny their emotions. I know my dad used to say what the hell are you looking up for and what the hell are you praying to the wind, the wall the bed what?

The sad truth is that I Feel bad for them and I feel bad for those that just give lip service to the divine and themselves. It takes many years and many experiences or pure devotion for many years to truly live the truth and know love true. A connection with the divine on a minute by minute relationship as a constant basis and being your true spiritual and physical being. Requires minute by minute breath by breath, heart beat by heart beat, devotion to and love of the Divine.  Enlightenment at its highest level.

The foundation we build sets the level and size of our knowledge and truth as well as the depth and height of our love.” Love deep and soar high, love shallow and sink deep”. You want the truth about what is love, love is minute by minute connection and what you choose to do with it. The beauty of free will is what you do with it. You can love all that is as you are part of it or you can hide from the truth and deny yourself and all that is the gift of that love. All that is suffers and we suffer if we choose not to appreciate and love all that is. When we suffer we reach for knowledge to end our suffering or we reach for something else. When we want to know the truth about love we reach for the creator of that love.

“Ask the horse” is a common term for ask the one that is responsible, we are responsible for who we are. Our Creator or what ever term you choose for your belief for me it is and forever will be God is the one who created love with love all there is. When you ask with a sincere and devoted heart filled with gratitude and humility you will find the energy of creation love. How long you feel it is how deep you love the divine and how much you choose to devote. Minute by minute second by second, breath by breath or once in a life time when like my dad you are on your death bed saying Dear God what have I done.

There is no easy way no short cut what you give is what you get.

“ Love deep and soar high, love shallow and sink deep”.

I am grateful for the opportunity to share a little of my truth, I owe a note of thanks to many yet it was my friend Clark Kent that inspired me to read an article and seek a deeper truth.

” The Beauty or truth of beauty is not just in beautiful things as all beautiful things are also ugly”. Plato

Not many men are able to see “ Beauty”  not all men are able to know love true. To know love true you must build a foundation of stone and be love true to be love true you must find the divine inside of you and live the way of the divine being love true to all that is. Beautiful and ugly are the same.

Thank you for allowing me to share a thought or two and perhaps a smile and some love. I share my personal thoughts and feelings from my heart and encourage all of us to seek love true the shared love of the divine that is inside of you so that we may share it with all that is. Please be the change positive share a smile and share your love making our world a better place for all we share it with. Minute by minute if we make an effort we can with the power of love we all share we can become one as a human race and become beautiful human beings with the understanding and living power of love true.” Beauty” of the sharing and loving of all there is. Thank you again, and feel free to tell me I am nuts if you choose… 🙂

Change from within


The waves relentless and ever changing

The depth, height and the power

Raging my heart, mind and soul the falling tower

 

In the wind gentle or roar, birds high they soar

They flutter down to the ground

The house of cards fallen down

 

 

Rain falling, rivers flow changing currents

Deep and shallow, wide and narrow

The tears and anguish emotions my souls marrow

 

 

Sun shining cool breeze blows

Joy and happiness the bones

 

 

Snow topped mountain made of stone

Solitude, time alone a gift for my soul to grow

Always loved and never forsaken

 

 

Mines and wells filled with shadows

The pain and depth the sacred hallow

My life though dark has never been shallow

 

 

The light of the moon and its eerie glow

Love of my Lord fills my soul

 

 

Even in the worst of times

Torches burning in my mind

Loving the Great Divine

 

I share this little poem as I am moved to and wish to share a smile and some love in my own way. I hope we can all share a smile and some love, making our world a better place for all we share it with. My original thoughts to be shared will wait for clarity as the thoughts are very deep and very emotional and best shared with a clear heart and mind.

Thank you for your time and your reading my posts I am grateful for the opportunity. Please be the change positive and share a smile and your love our world needs it!
