Lung ta - "Wind Horse"

As the sun bleaches the images on the prayer flag, as the wind kisses each strand of cloth away into the universe, so life moves on and is replaced by new life.

  • Blue is the sky, infinite space
  • White is the air, white is the wind
  • Red burns as fire
  • Green is the rushing water
  • Yellow is our mother earth

With these prayer flags, I hope for peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. I pray the wind carries these prayers out into the world, to spread peace and good will to all who walk this earth. May we learn to heal our wounds, to hold each other in high regard despite our differences. Let us find what makes us connected, rather than separate so that we can heal our earth together.

Thank you to everyone who sent such lovely healing energy my way the last couple of days. While fibro never goes away, it's back to being manageable. Namaste.

That image - those words, oh my.

You have a beautiful spirit Jood. Peace to you always.

It's a good thing I don't suffer from acrophobia or I'd have to hold others in moderate regard. Except for Cubs fans, they're always up there, the top of those ostentatious Dubai skyscrapers. ;-)

May today be a good day, and the same wish for each new day.

DivaJood said...

Fran, thank you. I don't feel real spiritual today, I feel like running over my boss.

Randal, we Cubs fans have had a very hard row to hoe these last 100 years, so we deserve a little of that Dubaius (new word, just made it up!) wealth.

Blueberry, thank you - but can I just run over my boss to make sure it's a good day?

Jood- namaste my sister and my friend. I am writing this here as I do not have your email.

Thank you for what you just wrote in a comment at my blog. It touched my heart deeply and I thank you.

Hi Diva ~ Ahh the prayer flags dancing in the wind, such a high spiritual ritual.

It sure is hard to find the balance.
I sometimes wish I could go retreat to a meditative place, away from the crazy madness of the so-called real world.
Corporate inhumanity, political chaos & corruption- seem to suck the lifeblood out of us. Those unaffirming drains are counter to what is good & healthy & humane.

Sure does feel like an endless uphill battle.

Some local peace groups fractionalized over upcoming Olympic Track & field trials in Eugene. A 10 day event, where the winers will be going to the Olympics in Bejing. there will be International press there.

I want to hld the Tibetan flag (3 x 5) to honor those in Tibet who do not have the liberty to display their own flag. And serve to remind of the genocide & oppression China has reigned upon them.

Other groups bantered they want to Focus on the US probs-- but the theme emerged--

Torture is no Game- be it US or China. It is hard for me to wrap my head around this country OUR country under our Watch, has done such horrific things.

So I join you in a prayer & hope for Peace.
A wish for sanity & stopping the self imposed suffering.

I am glad you are feeling better.

DivaJood said...

FIA, you are welcome, and you are kind.

Fran, what is it about peace groups being unable to work together? Unbelievable. And yes, knowing we live in a nation that has become one of those that tortures is so hard to comprehend - what do we do next, except to continue to send out the energy of peace.

Thank you very much for the inspiring and beautiful meditation. I hope that the healing process continues in your body. (And extends to include your boss, as well.)

DivaJood said...

B.E., thank you but I fear he is a hopeless case.

That is beautiful Diva! So happy you are feeling better inside and out. Namaste! I love that.

I should've read this post first! I'm so glad you are feeling a bit better, more "managed".

Thank you, Jood, for the lovely photo and the guide to the colors of the prayer flags. Mine brought me together with a neighbor I'd smiled at and waved to, but had not talked to. Next thing I know, I've bought some prayer flags for her and I'm offering them to her at her house, where I am treated to a beautiful backyard that's not visible from the road. It was an uplifting experience all-around.

If I may comment on what Fran wrote: I have had mixed feelings about working with the local peace group. It's more of a social group; friends who get together for various reasons and also do some peace related activities. While I think this is wonderful for them, it left me out in the cold. They didn't like any of my ideas; even suggesting that our town is not ready for such aggressive peace action. I didn't think it aggressive to plan a peaceful weekly vigil in the town park. Oh, well.

DivaJood said...

Jim, it's been a terrible week, but there we are. I feel I need to focus on what is right, rather than on what is wrong with me. So up went the photo from Bhutan.

DK, we can all be out of sequence, I'm just saying.

Pagan, it always amazes me when peace groups factionalize. We just cannot get it together. Oh, well is right.
