Keys – Blog No. 24

keys

When Alice was required to shrink in order to fit through the hidden door, the ‘Drink Me’ potion was her key. When using the ‘Eat Me’ key, she outgrew the house. These inconveniences did not deter her. They made her more curious. She decided to find The Key That Fits Every Lock. That would take a lot of looking, but it would save a lot of time.

Apart from the fact that That key could open any – and every – lock, it was also more often to be found on her keyring when she needed it most. Once a key has been eaten, it’s been eaten. Of course trying new keys was advisable when they were made available, but picking locks with That one key was quicker.

The charm bracelet that Alice carries is living. That way, it is adaptable. When she needs its bearing, she will wear it. When she does not need it, she will share it. There are occasions when she will want it – whether or not she needs it. I suspect when that happens she will get it. She is, after all, its servant and master.

Support – Blog No. 73

earth dayIf you have no support of any sort from any person other than yourself, yours is a very challenging existence.  To have the support of another human being, group of human beings, validates your life experience.  It is good to know that somebody cares.  Know that when you are in need of support, it is best to ask for it.  This is not easy for many people – there are a lot of us who find it difficult to ask for help.  Occasionally you will come across a person who offers you support without expecting anything in return.  This is a precious gift.  Receive it with grace if it should come to you.

If you are not feeling particularly useful at the moment, try being supportive to someone.  It will make a difference in their life.  Instead of standing and watching a person struggling, step in and take their hand.  Lift them with a kind word, an observation.  Sometimes people just need to know that someone can see their strife.  Burdens shared – and face it, we all have burdens to carry – are loads lightened.  Be aware of how much support you are prepared to offer.  Do not get caught in the trap of becoming someone’s crutch.  Taking someone else’s life-load on is not advisable.  Not only is it cruel – it takes away the liver’s ability to make decisions that will change their fate – it is counter-productive to your own progress.  You do not get anywhere on your life path by trying to bend straight another’s days.

Know that Nature supports you.  She supports your every move.  She listens, she hears.  You should speak aloud your heart’s desires.  They are not only for thinking about.  They are for realising.  Your human nature makes it possible for you to reach and live your dreams.  You just have to need them enough.  There are many wasted dreams lying in piles of want.  Want does not always get.  Need doesn’t either, but need drives you harder than want does and this makes success more likely.  Make sure you know what you need in your life.  Do not accept that your needs are less important than another’s needs.  Your wants, yes.  They are perhaps less important than the wants of others.  Needs need to be met.  Make their acquaintance.  Take their demands seriously.  Show support for their cause.
