Thoughts To Ponder

Excerpt from my self-published word CD "A Hole in the Middle"

Listen to everything around you. Tune up the volume in your ears and become a universal eavesdropper. You never know when what you hear is a message meant for you. It comes in many forms such as simple conversation, a line from a book or movie, or sitting quietly and listening to birds sing or the movement of the wind.

Look at everything around you. Your vision is meant to see more than what is in front of your eyes. Search for the universal connection, present in every moment. Being aware of that silver thread that binds everything together will always lead you to your next experience.

Evaluate your past and present life challenges on a regular basis. Notice what makes you proud of yourself and what does not. Strive for pride every day of your life and when you don't quite measure up to your personal standard, try harder. You can't change what you did, but you are the only one who has the power to change what you are going to do next.

Appreciate and take care of everything you have been given. Do not compare what you have with what anyone else has. You have everything you need at any given moment of your life. Be aware that anything can disappear in the brink of an eye. When you leave earth you will take what you have learned and nothing more.

Question everything until you are satisfied with the answer. If you feel it is wrong it probably is. Intuition if the universe guiding you. Do not allow anyone else to think or speak for you. You are the only one who is living your life. Do your best and the universe will reward you for your effort.

Acknowledge your pristine soul by staying true to your core values. They have been part of your universal makeup since your soul was created. Do everything possible to keep them clean. Do not get sucked into another's lesser values because of envy, greed, guilt, desperation or laziness.


  1. Remember that old piece found in a church dating way back - It was entitled "Deserdirado" or something like that. One of my favorites. Infact, I think I'll pull it up and use it on my blog. Anyways, your post reminds me alot of that! Good job, Barbara. The only thing I would disagree with are the statements that the universe is guiding me - and that the universe created my soul. I'm a God chaser, myself. The Holy Spirit guides me and God created my soul. We all have our differing opinions on something. This is mine. I'm not offended by yours - hope I haven't offended you. Thanks for sharing:)

  2. God is the universe and everything in it. Nothing would exist without our Creator. Does it really matter what word one chooses to apply to that entity?

  3. By the way, I have the piece you are referring to, it is very nice. A friend gave me a copy several years ago.

  5. Hey, count it a victory. You've got 3 comments about one post - even if they are all from me :) That's what I call a good blogger! You have me beat! So Press On. I hope you won't mind me commenting in the future. Feel free to delete them if you don't like them, I won't be offended. God bless you for sharing your talent for words.

  6. You did not offend me by anything you wrote and are welcome to comment on anything I write.

    I think we agree that there is only one Creator. I know from personal growth that the seed of that Creator resides in me as well as in everyone and everything ever created.

  7. Thanks for graciously allowing me to stop and "ponder your thoughts".
