a daily breath...

A thought du jour, my daily breath includes collected and conceived observations, questions of life, fortune cookie philosophies, reminders, messages of peace and simplicity, unsolicited advice, inspirations, quotes and words that got me thinking. They may get you thinking too . . .

I'm like a pencil;
sometimes sharp,
most days
other times
dull or
Still I write.

Willpower Works
Posted on February 29, 2020 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

The human mind is a huge sponge, each second of every day processing information, sights and sounds, directing you through tasks involved in everyday living. In all the excitement, though every activity, bits and pieces become trapped in your psyche. Some of this information is forgotten, or put aside, other times the residue of all the activity affects your nocturnal or unconscious thought.

The human will is an amazing thing. It can guide you to success, steer you through adversity, or just help you cope with what life throws at you. Willpower works through the daylight hours, but can also mold dreams and visions. Like any activity (music, yoga, art, science, theology) dreaming takes learning and practice. With some effort, and most of it done while you sleep, you are able to empower yourself by channeling your beliefs.


Get There

How will you get there
when the going’s not good,
when you can’t get around
as you normally would?

Be it weather or traffic
or a delay on Line One,
how will you do it
if you can’t get it done?

Where are you going, or
are you along for the ride?
How will you get there,
or know you’ve arrived.

A Tricky Thing
Posted on February 27, 2020 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

It is not
what you see, but
what you believe.
What happens, when,
and why (again) is
dependent upon how
you see it. Perception
can be a tricky thing,
What is your reality?
