"Flowering Horizons"

Today is a day of flowers on the horizon
Today is a day of vision...
a flowering vision in my heart...
bouquets of hopes and dreams
and inspired action
regardless of seeming-evidence to the contrary
buzzing around us.
Today is a day where "hope springs eternal" *
not as a passive wishing...
but as the rich soil where belief-seeds
take root...and where vision blooms.
Today is a day where the Soul's work evolves...
inspires...and takes outward form.
Yes, today...flowers of all sorts
are on the horizon
of my soul-garden...
they're coming up...right now!
Today is a day for knowing...
and trusting...
Today is a day of celebration...
of singing before the dawn...
and knowing the sunrise
of Heart-desires' bloom
is just a heartbeat away.
Trust.
. . . .
After listening to, and watching too much News...(none of it was uplifiting or empowering) something in me said "Enough! now..declare what you really know, what you know from Spirit." - The above writing "is" that Knowing. I was so divinely anchored after the above poured through me. Yes, I am thankful for Spirit that mentors me to fly higher than facts, figures and F.E.A.R (False Evidence Appearing Real) ...no matter how well it's disguised. ~ Ahh, life is good! and today is a day for seeing, feeling and living...that!

Hello Cheryl,
thank you for visiting my blog. This is my first visit to yours. Several of your mandalas spoke to me but I identify very strongly with your explanation of how this onw came into being: that if we attract what we think about then the news programmes are not good for us! Here in the UK we often have an 'and finally...' item on the news which is sweet, heart-warming or humorous. Wouldn't it be wonderful if there were more items like that in the main body of the programme, stories about ordinary yet great people who have ideas and do things to make the world a better place.
Thank you for sharing this with us.
Janice.
