The Guiding Life

A   L   O   H   A  !
"  To offer no resistance to life 
is to be in a state of grace, 
ease, and  lightness, "

Eckhart Tolle

" This City now doth,
 like a garment, wear
The beauty of the morning; 
silent, bare "

William Wordsworth

" If 
you clean the floor
 with love, 
you have done
an invisible painting. "


 Life is always guiding us. 

First it intimates, 
drawing our attention 
to what we need to know.

 If we don't notice, 
Life clears it's throat. 

If we still don't heed, 
Life taps us on the shoulder; 

All before 
Life punches us 
in the face!

 Yet we like to 
how random 
and scary
 Life is -

When it's been
guiding us
all along.

Thanks for visiting!
                          Warmly, cloudia

I suppose I often have a hard time listening to the guiding hand of life.

Big bug crawlin' on the sidewalk. Never seen tomatoes growing on a stalk before. Prefer to heed the hints before getting hit in the face.

I do love your rainbows.
Cleaning the floor with love: Invisible art work? Perhaps, but I would like some varnish to keep it in its perfection.

Great phots and words of wisdom!
If I want to obtain wisdom then I come here to see you, Cloudia.

I have had an amusing makeover!! ROFL. Details at my place!
