hello old bean!
thanks for stopping by.
i love that beautiful picture above! don’t you?
it makes me think of energy.
a light filled energy!
little by little i’m learning to attract the positive energy out there.
the one that connects us all to each other . . . just like in the picture . . .
and to the magnificent source of that energy in all of the universes.
the one that allows you to live right NOW.
the one that lets you become wonderfully aware of every present minute.
it has taken me over half my life to get here.
little by little every day now
except for my many setbacks . . . LOLOL!!!
i think i finally might be getting here.
you know. that curious ability to simply BE.
to just live right NOW. and be totally present.
do you love ducks?
i’ve always loved ducks.
there’s just something about ducks.
especially that afflac duck.
THE great celebrity in all duckdom !!!
here he is on the red carpet.
i always just like your regular every day kind of duck too.
ducks float along.
they get wet. they don’t mind.
they let it roll right off their back.
sometimes they’re known to have words with each other.
but usually when that happens
they just flap their wings
get rid of all that negative energy!
there they go
right back there
just relaxing and letting life simply
ducks know how to relax.
they have life figured out.
they just don’t spend time figuring it out and worrying about it all that much!
are here now.
dogs are too of course. oh yes. my beloved DOGS. oh my!
but then this is a duck post today.
where was i?
being here now. being present in your life now.
i’m learning that it’s the key.
the key to joy and happiness and a wonderful contentment.
i’m thinking it really is old bean! there is great truth in it.
living right now. this current moment.
it’s only what we have anyway.
the past is OVER.
it can’t hurt you anymore my dearest bean.
unless you spend this now time letting it.
don’t let it.
that seems to be the secret of the universe i’m learning.
the secret that makes the living here not only tolerable
the past is OVER.
good or bad.
the future isn’t known and CAN’T BE KNOWN.
we just never can seem to realize that. it’s hard for us.
unless we’re a duck of course!
we might as well realize that our precious LIFE is
ONLY RIGHT NOW.
and as ducks get older
they just find more about life to enjoy old bean!
they enjoy ALL their birthdays!
so what if they’re a little plump?
so what if they waddle a little slower?
so what if they sometimes forget which end is up?
it can happen to all of us old bean!
it’s all just part of the experience here.
a person could do worse than live like a duck.
til soon old bean!
