THE GYPSYWOMAN WORLD

My photo
A...WOMAN IN MOTION WITH HAIR AS DARK AS NIGHT HER EYES WERE LIKE THAT OF A CAT IN THE DARK... SHE WAS A GYPSYWOMAN... she danced round and round... from the fire her face was all aglow... she was dancing... dancing... waiting for the RISING SUN... loving caring relationships are like THE RISING SUN...we are nourished by their warmth...we are energized by their strength...we grow in their light...we find shelter and solace there...they are our sanctuary... born in the sign of the sun, i am a true LEO-love the sun and its hot orange red fire-passionate in and about everything i do-i believe in instant chemistry charisma love/lust at first sight-in the magic of the eyes and the beauty of the soul-in the instant recognition familiarity in meeting someone from a past life and in the knowledge that we might meet in a future life-i believe that we are each ageless and flawless-i believe in the beauty of the moment-the whisper of yesterday-the hope of tomorrow-the power of forgiveness for even ourselves-the absolute and total beauty of love---[credit to brian hyland and curtis mayfield]

be not afraid...





















We have to start teaching ourselves not to be afraid.

Strange but the Bible has 366 'Be not afraid.' Perhaps fear was the most common of human misgivings.

Have a great day Jenean.

Joy always,
Susan

I believe you cannot feel joy and fear at the same time...I choose joy!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Short and so poignant. I am often afraid of things I can not control, I need to learn to let go...

Yes, but fear is a part of us which is actually an extreme form of self preservation. It's instinct, but yes, we must learn to curb it for that is what we have a mind for...to control what we can and live the way we want to.

Love

"Be not afraid for life is short, and nothing is promised to man". A singer from the 60s I can't recall (there goes the rest of my memory lol) Very poignant post. NOTE TO BLUE SKY: I humbly disagree: When thinking on what God is, I sometimes feel a fearful joy and wonder if it's a human quality.

GYPSYWOMAN said...

ah, LBR, yes, that is the question, my dear, is it not????? i ask [rhetorically]!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

i think you are right mary ann - which should give us pause to think about where we allow our hearts to wander....

thanks so much for coming by - you know how much i love your place!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

protege - oh, control is something i know all too well - as most of us do, i guess - but control, yes, that is the issue for me! learning to let go is such a lesson!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

and deboshree - and the wisdom to know the difference?

GYPSYWOMAN said...

GYPSYWOMAN said...

hey lady janine! wonderful of you to take time to come over and leave a little [smiling] message - your notes always brighten my days!

An old Zen saying state that we never have reasons to be afraid. If we are afraid we cannot change the future of which we are afraid of, so that future will arrive regardless of our fears. Therefore, the fear is useless.
