We are shaped by our thoughts;
we become what we think.
When the mind is pure, joy follows
like a shadow that never leaves.
I like to think good thoughts. I like to speak them [or write them] "out loud" where anyone can know them.
It is all too easy at Present to stay in my shadow, to dodge in and out of the light, and to play small. And I think often I DO just that, fearful of ruffling feathers, so to speak.
With all that is going on in the World BEyond the Wee Cottage, I've been keeping something of a low profile. I'm practising how to simply observe, to notice yet DO so quietly.
There are things to say, things I'd like to say, yet I choose the words I "speak" aloud with great care. If they don't bring what is good and kind, better I keep quiet.
This week's theme for Artist's Play Room #33 is Shadows. With the Elections, Halloween, November, and the storming of Sandy, there is much casting shadows on Life as I know it today.
May the one I cast bring JOY, Hope, and Light. Now, and Always.
