...Like a Warm Scented Breeze

Like others, at times I feel frustrated and overwhelmed by the seemingly endless suffering of my fellow man, creatures, and as well personal difficulties, in which case I have a effective focus as an antidote - If my best efforts unsuccessful, I then ask for assistance to overcome from a greater source, in which case at some moment I find myself seemingly holistically transported to a serene state in which the answer is clear such as: "Rise above ...and carry on thing at a time".

When looking ahead the road forward seems so long and unknown, yet looking back you’ve come so far, gradually learning and growing from varied experiences.

For although the way may be incomprehensible and darkness everywhere, through the heart are illuminations from afar, yet so near – Like the caress of a warm fresh fragrant breeze, that can be felt, experienced ... known.


The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor touched ... but are felt in the heart.

Helen Keller
