Oh Lift Me!

Percy Bysshe Shelly 1792-1822

Joseph Severn's portrait of Percy Bysshe Shelley. The radical 19th century poet practiced the politics of the plate. For Shelley and other liberals of his day, keeping sugar out of tea was a political statement against slavery.
Joseph Severn’s portrait of Percy Bysshe Shelley. 

Oh lift me from the grass!

I die! I faint! I fail!

Let thy love and kisses rain

On my lips and eyelids pale.

My cheek is cold and white alas!

My heart beats loud and fast:-

Oh! Press it to thine own again,

Where it will break at last.

Some advice from The Little Book of love by Joules Taylor

~Letting Go~

Sometimes, no matter how hard you’ve worked at a relationship, or how much you want it to continue, the other person is no longer in love with you and wants to be set free. You could fight for them to stay, of course, but its wiser kinder, and ultimately healthier, to let them go.

However, this is often easier said than done, especially if you still love him/her. To make things a little less difficult, find a piece of amazonite or sodalite ( or both),  and keep them with you through the difficult times. They are both “feel good” stones, comforting to handle and attractive to look at; their colors are soothing and they may help you feel a little more optimistic about life in general.

It’s important, in such a situation, that you don’t lose your sense of your own worth. This relationship may not have been successful, but there’s no reason why the next one should go the same way, especially if you can learn from your mistakes. Keep the stone(s) with you to remind you that things aren’t as gloomy as they might appear.

Happy Holiday

Nineteen Ancient Poem

No rice in the larder, no clothes in the chamber

Gate

The mother of his children pulling, weeping at his sleeves, saying:

” Others dream of wealth and glory ,  their eyes on the blue sky above

But look you to the face of your son

Let us stay poor but stay together! Don’t go!”

But he says: ” I have no choice! Away! I’m already late!

Already my hair turns white, no one lives forever.”

“A beautiful thing is never perfect.” ~Proverb

I like to think of myself as a rational person. Yes, I have emotions that muddle my choices, and I make mistakes on logic problems just like anyone else. But when I have big decisions to make in my life, I’d like to believe that I go with the facts. But the real test of my patience comes when I fail in the quest to pursue my dream. The only question that haunts me at that time and prevents me to take the next step is whether or not should I continue to pursue my dream.

According to your faith it will be done for you. (Matthew 9:29, paraphrased)

Faith is never quiet. Faith has a voice. It speaks and makes bold declarations. When you are fully devoted to the faith that whatever may happen, what I want will happen, then Impossible is…
