Thank You

Social Media and Blogging sometimes just doesn’t feel quite right!! Do you ever feel that?

I’ve never really felt comfortable with a lot of it….There’s something superficial, inauthentic and soulless about much of it that leaves me troubled. It can be a wonderful way to make meaningful connections though, and I’ve made several ๐Ÿ’™ . It’s also a means of spreading beauty, peace and love; sharing creativity and thoughts…which is what I try to do.

I’m taking some time out for a while to ponder my relationship with it all ๐Ÿ™‚ . I’m genuinely, sincerely grateful to everyone who supports and follows my creative outpourings, and connects with me along the way.. Thank You..Mairi ๐Ÿ’™

Lightly

โ€œItโ€™s dark because you are trying too hard.
Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly.
Yes, feel lightly even though youโ€™re feeling deeply.
Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them."

- Aldous Huxley
Painting by Mairi

I love these words by Aldous Huxley. Beautiful, profound truths are often easy to resonate with, but not so easy to apply. Feeling lightly when you’re feeling deeply can be very challenging. I especially find this with anger, which for me is the most toxic of emotions…it always leaves me feeling as though I’ve violated my soul, and polluted the Universe.

There is much to feel angry about these days in this troubled and sometimes cruel World. I often have to take myself to a place of surrender…to accept my smallness within the vastness…to go inwards and reconnect with love…the most powerful power I have..Mairi๐Ÿ’™

Something Beautiful..

A shaft of light;
the flash
of belief..

forgiving insight;
a falling
leaf..

benevolent toil;
the butterfly's 
wing..

a merciful smile;
all fragile
things.
