Not always with the flow

When I initially read this two quotes from World of Warcraft came to mind that the Jinyu say, “Go where the river wills,” but later they go on to say, “Don’t be afraid to swim against the current”. This post had really great ideas and a good message, however – I don’t think, “Going with the flow,” is bad either. Many of us already know that life simply cannot be THAT easy, as much as we’d like it to be.

And often times when it IS that easy, it isn’t worthwhile. More often than not though I have heard from other Spiritual individuals, teachers, wisemen and so forth that if you want very -little- drama in your life or otherwise, go with the flow. If you try to swim against these things it may make things more difficult. That being said, sometimes as hard as we try to do just this, there will BE drama regardless.

Be sure to keep these things in mind when you are reading this article. 🙂

Sometimes everything is easy and falls neatly into place. When that happens, it can be tempting to see it as proof that we are blessed, and moving in the direction some higher, hopefully benevolent force approves of. Perhaps we feel in tune with the universe, or that reality is bending over backwards to accommodate us. Either way, it can be intoxicating.

Nature is populated by things that create tides, and things that go along with them. The moon makes the sea tides, opening up coastal feeding opportunities, and then the predators come to feed on that which feeds and they are all part of the same tide. It makes good sense to use something heading your way, to go with a flow that suits your purpose.

Swans migrating thousands of miles ride the winds to ease and speed the journey. They could ride any wind, letting the air currents take…

Absolutely NO Drama Queens’ Allowed!

Drama Queen II

Taking a brief reprieve from my feverish novel-writing – I decided I had time today to at least write a short topic of interest. Whether it is a dating site or a regular networking site I’ve seen people say, “If you are a Drama Magnet, don’t be friends with me,”  “I don’t want any Drama Queens either. You better have your sh*t together” or “I’ve had enough drama in my life. I don’t need anymore“. When people say such things I often have to wonder, what do you mean? Consider this – if Drama is constituted as “Any” regular problem that may arise in our lives that helps to strengthen, shape, and hammer us into who we are as we move along the wheel of life, how can the world or people truly be without Drama?

Day One/Two of NaNoWriMo: Operation Charlie Brown

”]Cover of "Bram Stoker's Dracula [Blu-ray]...So you all know, I am going to try to participate in NaNoWriMothis month. I don’t know if I’ll write a novel that’s 50,000 words or more but the REAL goal in all of this is to finally finish a novel I started a few years BACK! Since I’m a wee bit paranoid though – you won’t be seeing an excerpts from me here or on the official NaNoWriMo forums. I’m rather protective of my work and very picky and choosy about who sees it and who helps to be my editors. However, I will be posting mini-updates about my progress – such as this. I know we are already into day 2 of NaNoWriMo and I really haven’t had a chance yet to get started back on my novel. It’s not because I am purposely trying to procrastinate. I’m being honest when I say this. It has more to with distractions or much-needed errands have to be “RUN” towards late end of the evening. Or I get incredibly sleepy (which is what happened last night). Right now, I’m not sure if I’ll try to pull up what I can of my already typed up work tonight or tomorrow. I don’t have a lot of energy I feel to do that – however I have enough for maybe writing one of my regular “Topics of Interest of the Day” sort of dealies.

What I WILL tell you about the Novel I have already started is this: More
