I am a Health Therapists and like many others in my field I was initially attracted to a profession that allowed me to fix people. I had all the answers for health and well-being. Now that I am older and wiser still I realise that there is absolutely nothing I can say or do to make another change their behavior.

img_1319The only gift I can offer the suffering is my silence and yet after all these years, I find it difficult to really listen. The habits, patterns, motivations of a life time imprinted in my soul. O that I could be the person described in the anonymous poem below…

I know you are listening when:

You come quietly into my private world and allow me to be me

You really try to understand me even when I am not making much sense

You grasp my point of view even when it goes against your own sincere convictions

You realise the time I have taken from you has left you a bit tired and a bit drained

You allow me the dignity of making my own decisions, even though you think they may be wrong

You don’t take my problem from me, but allow me to deal with it in my own way

You hold back your desire to give good advice when you sense I am not ready for it

You give me enough room to discover for myself what is going on

You accept my gift of gratitude by saying how good it makes you feel to know that you’ve been helpful.

 

My search for the miraculous has brought me home.

Life’s Heartbeat

Hiding

in my siblings eyes.

As the words of the Good Book echoes in my head…

Love is always patient and kind;

Love is never jealous;

Love is never boastful or conceited;

It is never rude or selfish;

It does not take offence and is not resentful.

Love takes no pleasure in other peoples sins but delights in the truth;

It is always ready to excuse. to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes.

Love does not come to an end.

( 1 Corinthians:  13; 4-8)

The photos in this  post were taken yesterday. 2nd October 2016. My sister Lynda and I celebrated  our  joint birthday. There is 10 years and ten days between us. The others in the photos  are  brothers  Charlie and Paul and sister Christina. This was a first for a very long time.

Just a thought on this Monday Morning, …

If humanity is to evolve, we must believe in the power of compassion over greed.

Happy 4th July
