The Intention of My Blog

Welcome, my beloved readers!

In case you're wondering, it's not a typo up there for you see the definition of goodly is:

used as an adjective to describe something
1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I am a mother who home educates her children; I would be pleased if you'd look around. You never know if I might have something to your liking. I've blogged about different topics. I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Please remember to subscribe to my blog, using any variety of methods, which are below to the right, including Facebook.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

My Contemplation of Verse 19 of the Tao Te Ching

I contemplate the Tao Te Ching, verse by verse, with Dr. Dyer's help.

It is more important
to see the simplicity,
to realize one's true nature,
to cast off selfishness
and temper desire.

I think it is important for us to find our voice.  Our style of speaking and writing is different from that of others.  We must be true to ourselves.  We've got to do things from the heart.  We must tap into the Source (Tao-God) of our creativity.

Our true natures call out to us.  We can't quiet them down.  They are aching to come out and feel the air.  We must give in to our deepest wants and desires. 

I'm not talking about sinning.  I'm talking about what drives your passion for living.  I'm talking about what drives you to wake up in the morning.  I'm talking about something that would be work but wouldn't feel like it was work.  Can you imagine what that would be?

What is limiting you?  Is it religion?  Is it financial obligations?  Is it the legalities of your situation? 

I'm not asking you to turn on your religious beliefs.  I'm not even asking you to break the law.  I'm just asking you to cast aside the limitations of doubt and fear.    In order to be true to yourself, you have to keep to your integrity--your deep beliefs of fairness and love.  Living the life you want does not mean going against your beliefs.

That's why I'm writing this all out.  I'm living out my dream.  To write has been a burning passion in my life.  It has been a blessing when I had no one to talk to.  It's been a life saver for me.

How about your, my readers?  What is your passion?  Are you living your passion?  I challenge you to think about it seriously. 

May God bless you with His peace, my beloveds.
