“When we begin to build walls of prejudice, hatred, pride, and self-indulgence around ourselves, we are more surely imprisoned than any prisoner behind concrete walls and iron bars.” (Mother Angelica) on the path least traveled…

Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..just letting the heart do the talking while the fingers do the walking while being different, being me… 🙂

Me 1 copy

( “I do not do, say or write something to been seen or heard… I do, say or write something because it needed to be done, said or written…” , no nominations please, just sharing thoughts while exploring life 🙂 )..

One of the problems in today’s world with conflicts is the desire for wealth.. not only does the desire create anger, suffering and hate…but also is the justification for one to pass judgement and ridicule on another…

Not here on the path for “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched– they must be felt with the heart.” (Helen Keller)…

I’m far richer than the rich
Wealthier than the wealthy by far,
I have gold in the sun
I have silver in the star.

I have dreams that I follow
That are more precious than gold,
As I venture through life
Eagerly watching, the dreams unfold.

I have diamonds, too many to count
With each new fallen snow,
As I see each one sparkle
While basking in the suns glow.

The mornings bring nature’s painting
Priceless, a portrait of the sky,
Impossible to duplicate
Even though many did try.

Each bloom of the red rose
A ruby, one of a kind,
With the bloom of the white rose
A pearl comes to mind.

Money have I little
But wealth I have got,
But I don’t fit in with
The wealthy and rich lot.

But I’m not going to change
A wealthy dreamer I’ll stay,
Until the rivers, they all run dry
Until the four winds, they all blow away.

(Larry “Dutch” Woller )

And “It is not the image without, but the love within that matters” (Author Unknown)…

Hello Diary,

Another problem today is with beliefs/ideologies… the problem being certain elements of world’s societies/ideologies have become closed minded, denying change (with change being the law of life) and refusing to accept another as to who they are or what they believe, that closed minded ideology has created problems….
There was a time when there were no organizations, leaders, books, etc… there were no churches, mosques, etc…. there were no Christians, Muslims, Jews, etc…..yet people did believe in something… they were not told what or how to believe, their beliefs came from the heart, they believed what they wished to believe, with love…. and for the most part, no matter the belief, they did so in harmony….

Well, the universe knows I am not into religion (I do meditate) but my cathedral is my garden… 🙂

I live in a not so secret garden
Along the path least traveled,
Quite unlike the other world
A world that has become unraveled.

A garden of peace and harmony
Being different does not matter here,
All creatures, big and small, living together
Unlike the other world, they do not live in fear.

Together we live the hand that Fate has dealt us
Not sure, or dwell, on our final destiny,
But live to enjoy the moment, the hour, the day
That is what life is about, don’t you see.

So into the not so secret garden I will venture
Along the path least traveled,
To find love, understanding, to follow one’s dreams
Unlike the other world unraveled.
(Larry “Dutch” Woller )

The sky is the ceiling and impossible to duplicate with a paint brush (photo taken last year)…

The backyard residents, the birds are my choir (photo taken last year)…..

Like the world’s societies they are different yet sing in perfect harmony, a choir second to none… I also are not told what or how to believe, sooooooooo this ole born again heathen ventures into the “cathedral” (outdoors in the summer, indoors in the winter) for meditation (photo taken last year)..

And I listen to my heart… “Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.” (Roy T. Bennett)… 🙂

So, Diary, should you find yourself confused, in doubt, perhaps you need to find your quiet “Cathedral” and listen to your heart…and, you might wish to take the advice of the Seekers and do what many have done in history’s past no matter what you wish to believe…. 🙂

Well, I had better close for now as “Everyday I have two choices, either to venture into the light, follow one’s dreams and live life, or stay in the shadows, the darkness and never know happiness…” (Larry “Dutch” Woller) so it is down the path I shall go… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…. 🙂

At night, while thinking of my dream “The only thing that stands between you and your dream is the will to try and the belief that it is actually possible.” (Joel Brown), I look for my favorite star… 🙂
