The POT

My eyes focused on the tasty looking bits in the dish, as I served my lunch. My thoughts guided my selection, the bits of meat to boost my iron levels and a good source of protein too. I added some “veg” for some fibre and was mindful of getting vitamins and trace elements too.

It occured to me that thoughts also should be chosen with care and my mind the POT as power over thoughts. Cheerful and positive thoughts empower to do good. Fearfilled thoughts stir up panic and hinder healthy responses. As the saying goes by Martin Luther, you cannot keep birds from flying over your head but you can keep them from building a nest. Thoughts may come from various sources, Corona virus news from the media, distressing events to friends and family members, bad news about one’s health from the doctors etc

Choice! Choose the thoughts that’ll do you good! Like stopping the bird from making a nest, thoughts may be arrested for prevention of harm. Healthy thoughts, like good ideas may also be embraced and developed for the good of others!

So, with news flying around daily, the need to be calm and prevent further harm is needed.

Catch the thought that’s agitating. It’s usually a phrase or sentence that keeps repeating itself and rousing fear. Confront it, it’s a bullying thought!


Address the thought. Is it helpful or dreadful? Allowing unhealthy thoughts to stay is like deliberate self harm!


Lead the thought in if its healthy or out if detrimental. Sometimes, help may be needed to get harmful thoughts out, like talking to a friend or professional help to put the distress to an end. Stubborn weed may need extra help to be uprooted!


Make a plan! #MAP What have I found helpful / unhelpful. If this happens again, what will I do?

Doing nothing increases the chance of the bird building its nest, hatching its eggs and breeding more birds over one’s head!

It looked like it would be the perfect dream, starting life on acres of green pasture, evening walks on the farm inhaling fresh clean air! The scenes started to change like a movie being fast forwarded and precious moments seemed uncaptured till gone, not to return. I started learning to cherish life, the greatest gift above all things! I needed more, so I sought the source and got to know it came from Love and with it was always freedom! The rapidly changing scenes, with years speeding by, have been stormy and sometimes still, bright and grey, with highs and low! I have found meaningful living is not determined by circumstances but rather by what goes on within. The juice in the heart powers the body, its activities and interactions. Love gives life and powers living, with freedom expressing life. I remain passionate about a journey with life, love and liberty and hopefully encouraging others to do the same, living purposefully and leading in liberty. #LoveLifeLiberty
