Mary Jane's Shoes

Mary Jane's Shoes

Musings of one person among many. Not exceptional in any way, as with all, I have exceptional experiences and varied reactions to those events. Mine is one of many life stories and how I manage and cope with the events which make my life my own, I attempt to put forth by way of my writings.

Chairs

I find moments of clarity, not when the chairs are straight, pushed under the table squarely, but when they are askew and their occupants have left them in a time excited, involved in conversation, or when one seated moves to join children and the jumbled toys on the floor.

Intrinsic in All

January 12, 2017

~

These are thoughts I often have. Upon hearing two people discuss a tree that shouldn’t be purchased due to its lack of beauty, I felt the desire to reiterate. 

~

I am accepting, and more often now embracing, the thought that chaos breeds more creativity, brings singular beauty. As this maybe so, without a doubt the perfectionist still lives in my “closing in on six decades alive” mind. Yet I do see perfection differently. I see it as encompassing more, even all, if you look at something as it exists alone. If you look at its purpose, all things, entities, have a beauty born from the purpose of their existence. Perfection and beauty are intrinsic in all, if you look clearly and without preconceived notions. 

~

Take the fallen apple, like those that fell in my backyard as a child. At first glance the pock marked, darkening, softening fruit deters one from taking more notice. It is more repulsive than beautiful. Not so to the curious two year old; he sees it with great interest. Outside influences have not taken hold. Regain the wonder. Look more closely. The decay of fruit fallen from the tree breaks down, to nutrients that nourish the soil on which it rests. Therein lies perfection, as its purpose is fulfilled. The decay amongst the chaos is then seen as a thing of beauty.

True Exposure Between Two

November 19, 2016

~

Do any of us ever expose our entirety, to one person? Are we capable of such? 

~

To the soulmate, to use the cliche term, we may believe we do. At first heartfelt response, I personally believe I do. I want to believe I do. 

~

 Why is this at all important, worthy of any discussion? To bring health to relationships, this is why it is worthy. To be fully, emotionally entwined with another is the importance. To me honesty, and being forthcoming, with all known feelings and thoughts, is paramount to trust and full all-encompassing love. Secrets cannot reside in what one holds as a true relationship. In this regard, not my usual stance on a vast majority of issues, I am firmly black and white. 

~

There is an operative word I wrote above this paragraph…known. Known feelings. This implies that there exist unrecognized emotions. There one is off the hook so to speak. One may feel but not recognize. These are not expressed to the soulmate, unless he/she can read between the lines. Once the owner recognizes the emotion, honesty is the rule; this is my guideline. It may not be your way of thinking and acting. This is your belief and is accepted as such. Differences keep the human species safe and evolving. 

~

In my mind, all thought about said relationship should be relinquished to the loved one. Relinquishing is equivalent to complete loving. 
It is as the flower blooms and gives itself fully to sunlight. It is as the water moves downstream and gives itself completely to the cut rock and falls. 

~

Again, you may not feel these thoughts are an accurate take; and again, if true, these are what bring evolution to our sameness. 

~

These are simply my evening thoughts.
