Happy January 2017

Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be changing a few things around at 22shangrila – taking down pages, putting new ones up. Consider it a bit of ‘de-cluttering’ for the New Year.

There will be a page called, WHAT’S NEW, which will mostly be about what’s currently available to buy, with a few added ‘bits’. This way you’ll be able to check it out at your leisure rather than having to scroll down on the main section to find things.

And there will be a page entitled, THOUGHTS FOR THE MONTH. You may find a quote there or something longer. Hopefully it will in some way inspire you and touch your heart. Because we are almost at the end of January (hard to believe, I know), it will begin February 1st, the Celtic New Year.

I’ll also be changing the POETRY page periodically. Mostly you see new postings of poetry in the main section, and that will continue. But from time to time, I will scoop one of them up and tuck it into the Poetry Page. Do go and take a peek now and then. I hope you enjoy them.

I also hope you’ll stay with me as we walk these challenging times together. The year 2017 promises to be a year of opportunity, but it is opportunity cast within a swirl of chaos. Chaos, as you may remember, can be diva drama at its best. As such, it loves to pull you in and hold you in its sway. It wants you to believe it is the only game in town. It needs that to succeed. However, if your desire is for peace and harmony, a growing serenity within, a life of kindness and caring for yourself and your world, this year will be your chance to truly live that desire.

Meditate. Find the stillness within. Look beyond the illusion. Stand true to your core knowing in your heart of hearts. Be kind. Be caring. Share your gifts and talents generously. Laugh in small giggles and big HAHAs. Let people know how beautiful they are – because they are. Daily tend your garden of life that it may flourish and grow. And above all – LOVE.

 

Love is the answer. Always has been. Always will be.

For your consideration … AT HOME IN THE GARDEN

 Size: 20” x 22 ¼”

Focus: To be AT HOME IN THE GARDEN means the struggle is over and a world of harmony and love, joy and plenty, balance and serenity stands before us. The peeling of the onion skin has brought us to the oasis of being and we are ready to begin life in a new and wondrous way. To be AT HOME IN THE GARDEN means relaxing into a life lived from a different set of qualities, a different way of perceiving and of interacting – with the small self, the divine Self, and with all else. It does not mean the journey is over. In many ways, it means the journey has just begun.

So, though this is the last of this Template Series, it could also be perceived as the beginning. For those of you into numbers, this is the 33rd of 33 in the series. The half moon symbols in these templates represent the essence of divine light – our own inner Eternal flame. As it turns out, there are 33 of those as well. So whoever becomes the Keeper of AT HOME IN THE GARDEN will be asking themselves to open more to a life lived through the power of divine love and the eternal flame that resides deep within the heart, from whence all tranquility and bounty flow. It is the pinnacle of possibility. The jump has happened, the skin has been shed, and the new dances before us.

If you feel AT HOME IN THE GARDEN may be for you – if your heart calls to become its Keeper, do not hesitate. And if you do become its Keeper, be willing to put it in a place of reverence in your home, meditate with it, and let others see it as well, that they too may be touched by the opportunity of being AT HOME IN THE GARDEN. As you do, small seeds of change happen within – for you, for others, and for our world.

I look forward to hearing from you. And as always, I wish you much joy.
