The winds today…

Well the sun is out again this early morning and I woke up to the sounds of the wind hitting the house. The winds always remind me about the trees and how they talk to each other. Trees give us air to breath and I find it important to listen to the wind and the trees lately. I know the spirit of the trees are telling us some kind of message. Maybe it’s a very simple message, and then maybe it’s a message that you need to sit down and take some time to really understanding it.

I think the trees are telling me to keep moving forward with my plans as my health goes and also just to take some more time to seeing the miracles around me as well. So I am going to get outside on this cold day and feel the wind on my face and just know how good I really have it at this time.

In closing just listen to the things around you today for you never know what your going to be hearing. Be good to each other and just know that things are in motion that aren’t going to stop in the sense of who you really are….

Looking into the tigers eyes…

Well, here I go again about something that I have passion for and that is one of the animals that I have studied in the martial arts in the past years and that is of coarse the tiger. And I thought that I would take some time out of my day to explain the tiger and it’s purpose in my life and others. Well to start this everyone knows that tigers are some of the most powerful animals in mother nature. And the things about tigers are people think that they are only after one thing is that is killing prey for there survival, and yes that is the part of the tigers way of living. And there is many other functions of this great animal, but I am going to talk about the spirit of the tiger and what it means in us.

I will share that I like to look at the tiger to see it strength and how it carries itself on the field that it walks. But at the same time the tiger likes to be calm walking down them paths alone and sometimes that is where this animal finds it most peace with this world. In my experiences in my life I have been both places where the tiger has gone. And in the end I always found myself on that path of finding some kind of peace at the end of my days. I know that when you understand the things around you more it seems like you get less frustrated with the things that are so important that you really thought that was.

See a tiger always looks you in the eyes before it figures out what it’s going to do with you. I mean the tiger can just stare into your eyes and maybe do nothing, and yet at the same time the tiger might surprise you and just want to play with you in the sense of letting you live to see another day. Then there is the part of the tiger when he looks you in the eyes, he or she sees a pain that you been carrying for quite some time in your life. When I would work the forms of the tiger it always brought the best out of me when I studied the arts. Sometimes Master would tell me to not work so hard to becoming a tiger, work on the inner soul of that peace of becoming that tiger. And then there was lessons when Master would say to me that you need to bring out that tiger today. Which meant give it everything you had, and sometimes I never felt that I truly could respect that tiger in the sense of bringing it all out in the session that we were in.

It wasn’t until years later that I realized the power of what the tiger really meant to me. Sometimes I learn lessons way to late in my life when things happen, and you sit there and tell yourself why didn’t you listen when you had that chance in your life. But getting back to this story I just remembered all these stories which might seem crazy to you, and maybe they don’t make sense now, but trust me even you take something out of this even a sentence then you have looked into the tigers eyes in this post.

I will leave you with this final story, and to me this was an important story that I never have forgotten. When the tiger came down the path and he seen the crane, the  snake, the panther, and the dragon. He stopped in his tracks. The tiger was so surprised to see all these animals together in one spot. But the tiger was really thinking who he was going to kill first and then second and so on, and then the snake looked into the tigers eyes, and asked him why he was so angry to see all of us co-existing on the path. The tiger just started to get angrier and angrier seeing what he was seeing. And the next thing is the tiger attacked the animals that were in front of him, but found out quickly that the snake already put some poison into the tigers veins. See, the tiger thought that he could out move the other four and paid the price of getting really sick. The next thing the tiger passed out on the trail to to the poisonous antidote that the snake gave him. See snakes can control over how much to inject into someones body at one time. So, the snake just gave the right amount of antidote to just make the tiger sleepy for awhile.

After a few hours of sleeping the tiger realized that he wasn’t as strong as he first thought that he was. The tiger woke up slowly to seeing the snake looking at him, and then the crane was in the background with the panther and the dragon well he was just smiling at the tiger for what he had done before. And the tiger noticed the dragon smiling at him, and the tiger was asking why are you smiling at me dragon, and the dragon replied you were like us at one time in our lives as well. And look what happened to you tiger, you had one of the smallest animals take you out and lucky the snake didn’t kill you from that. And the tiger was very thankful for that the snake spared his life.

As the tiger was getting to his feet the panther came up to him and helped him by telling him that you are apart of this world and that you are needed with us in this journey and we know that you can bring something into this world that is needed. And the tiger asked what can I bring to this world. And the panther told the tiger that you can bring anger when it’s necessary to bring it, and then you can bring happiness and calmness out of the things that matter the most to people.  And the tiger said that isn’t that what you four are doing at this time, and the panther smiled and told the tiger lets all take a walk down this path and let me tell you what we all do here in this world and our jobs and how we make things happen. So, that is what the tiger did he started his journey with this four that he never knew anything about before.

With this all said go out and do things that make you uncomfortable at this time and feel what’s different in your life when you learn that struggling is actually okay. The tiger is taking that walk and learning this message as well, not just once but everyday for that matter. And as I continue to struggle with everything in my life at this current time getting ready to loose an old lover and best friend, I feel that this story fits me to the reasons of that I am angry about why this is happening to me, and then I have that snake spirit telling me to be calm and that it’s going to be okay, and then I have this tiger that has been a big part of this and she tells me too that what your feeling is going to pass. I have become close in spirit with this tiger I have met. But, I just have to tell myself in these lessons that this too will pass. So, I try to tell this story with using my animal spirits around me, and sometimes you might not understand the purpose of these stories, but they sure help me in a time of trouble.

With this all this said, go love everyone around you and continue to pull your inner channels with the spirits around you.

 

Spring Storm…

Another March storm has hit the area today. Today totals will reach around 4 to 7 inches of fresh new snow for our region. Which I guess I would have to say that we are still into winter as of yet. But snow is always a good thing I think like I have talked about before. Nothing wrong cleanses the world that I’m in at this time. Which is a good thing that Mother Nature takes the time to do.

Well off to another Monday here. And I’m still alive and in one piece for starters. Today I will be running around in this snow getting things done for myself that needs to get done. Off to the doctors office then my father and I will go have a nice lunch together and just talk over the things that matter the most at this time.

But I will be keeping this post short but just wanted to share this last note that I hope everyone this week will take some time to focus on themselves. I just think it’s important to slow down a bit and make sure your where your at in your life. I don’t think enough people take that time out of there days just to focus on simple things. I mean just take 5 minutes is all I’m saying to just be happy that your walking around and breathing in all this great air that the trees have giving to us. Just what ever you want to be thankful in the end is all I’m asking from you this week.

In the end, be good to yourself and the things around you…

Daylight Savings Time…

Well we all woke up to less sleep this morning due to Daylight savings day. And for me it takes a week getting used to the change of loosing that hour of sleep. It always important to listening to your body when it comes to sleep. We usually sleep about a quarter of our life away. But feeling the energy we get is something more important and how that makes us function is even more important in the end.

I brought this all up because it’s important to take the time to understand what your body needs and it’s also important to feel the spirit around you when your more rested. I been thinking about a lot of things lately and I would have to say what’s more troubling is knowing I’m going to loose that best friend that I fell in love with over 20 years ago in a matter of days.

I just can’t wrap my head around this for some strange reason today. I mean I know we aren’t together anymore. But I feel at times I am because I relive the memories in my head of those great times we had together. See in the end that’s all you have of that person is some old pictures and them memories. I just feel like that it’s not fair that this is happening to me. I’m battling my health and know loosing a great friend in a few days.

But I have to remember life isn’t fair and never was meant to be fair. But I will just have to re-group my thoughts today and still try to make something out of this day. There are still good things I have to focus on and that’s how I am going to be taken this day. I just had to clean my thoughts out of my head and put them in this post. But I guess it’s that time to get this new day started and make things happen.

So in closing go see someone that you haven’t seen in awhile and spend some that precious time with them for you never know what could happen from the days to come. Time is a gift and remember that it has no price tag on it. Tell that person that you love them and put your arms around them and embrace that warmth of that hug around your heart. 

With this all said, be good to each other…

Walking on the path with my friend…

 

 

Today I woke up to seeing the sun shinning in the sky and I thought that I would talk a walk with a friend to understanding what the purpose of life is lately. So I was flying over the area I noticed a friend walking on the path today so I flew on down to see it was my friend a furry tiger just walking down the center of the trail. So, I landed next to my old friend and ask him how his morning was going, and his reply to me was that why does life have to be this hard? I look at my old friend and told him is it really this hard to live? The tiger just looked at me and said to me, “Do you see all this sadness in the world today, and to you realize that we are the ones that always try to make sense of all this great wonder that is around us Crane”. And replied to the tiger, “Yes, but that is our job in this world is to go out and make the difference in peoples lives everyday”.  And the tiger replied back to me saying, “I agree but to we ever get a break in what we do Crane? Well, do we?” I could see that the tiger was wearing a deeper path in the trail that we were walking on, as I going to reply to the tiger I noticed a tear coming from his eye, and I was going to ask one of the strongest animals on the planet why are you shedding a tear for, but then it hit me. I seen something in my friend that the world needs to do more. And that is simply to just let it out what ever your feeling at the time.

I know that everyone is carrying some type of pain in there life today. I know sometimes there is not an easy fix to the things around us that hurt the most. I can relate to the tigers pain on this trail, I found out that I might be loosing my first love of my life due to some kind of cancer. I know that we aren’t together anymore, and that’s not the point of this, but the love I have will always remain strong for her as long as I live. I don’t take news of this very easily. I sit here and use these animals to tell a story like my master before me did. He had a way of his words that you never understood, but later down the road it would hit you and then you would understand the lesson he was teaching you years ago.

I remember a lot of the stories of the tiger and the crane walking down a wooded path together, and again these two animals in the end never would ever get along in the wild, but then again you never know what happens in this world when someone in a pain that is unbearable. I would like to believe that the tiger is shedding those tears because he feels a deep pain for his friend the crane, and yet at the same time the tiger is telling that crane to remain strong that better things are coming down the road if you want to believe in that.

Being a crane in my form of my life, it’s hard to see things for what they are in the sense of the pain that really is out there in this world. And to see my family and friends in pain, is not what this life is about. I know that walking down this path everyday with my friend that tiger clears my mind in the sense of that she teaches me to be kind to others. And watch out for the things that are hurting you and learn to move around them. The tiger tells me that even though she cries, she cries to become stronger. She cries for the ones that can’t cry at this time because maybe they can’t just cry. But the tigers tears are short lived for she looked at me and told me that we will get through these storms that are ahead of us on this path. The word I want you to remember out of all of it crane is this, “Believe”.

And as I looked at my friend I told her, that is what is what I am going to start doing more than ever is to believe. That is where we need to put our faith in the tiger looked at me and said. And after that was said, I wrapped my wings and feathers around her and told her what a great friend you are to me and to this world. As I released my wings from her fur, she grabbed me before I took off, and said to me, “Remember this talk we had today, for you will use this down the road for others to learn from.” And I looked back and told the tiger, “Thank you for this wonderful day and friendship.” Then I flew off into the sky thinking all about what the tiger has taught me today. And in the end of this story, go out there and make things happen today. It doesn’t have to be big things, but leave your mark somewhere in this world that it will be remembered. Maybe not by you, but by someone else and then they can take this and use it to help someone else out.

Until then be good to each other, and I thank my master for this story years ago, and I want to tell him that I will never forget all that he did for me growing up in a time of sadness and not having a family. For in the end, Master you were my family, and you were my tiger and my crane…

Hard day…

I’m in so much pain at this time with my health and to tell you the truth I just feel like giving up today. I’m so tired of being in this pain. It’s a physical pain that I can’t even begin to describe to you. I am trying my best to stay positive. With all this emotional pain physical pain, I just hope the end is in sight for as far as this health issue goes.

But I will keep you posted on the process as I find out what’s really going on, but thank you all that have been supporting me in my journey. I can’t thank you enough. But I’m going to rest now. Take care and learn to love one another…

Being a tiger and what it means…

I had an old friend left me a comment on my post with me last night on this blog, and she was a great friend to me even though we never met before. But her spirit is so strong that the world feels her every movement through her posts. But I am writing this because I told her last night about being a tiger and what that really means. I studied the martial arts and still am studying and we have five animals that we study. One of them was the tiger, and I told her that her spirit was like being that tiger. See tigers are one of the most beautiful creatures on the earth and yet on the other hand one of the most dangerous at the same time due to what it does to survive.

I know that this person will read this post at some point and I wanted to tell her that being a tiger is one of the best things we have for being a spirit animal. The other spirit animals I study are the crane, panther and the snake and last the dragon. The tiger can’t live without the other four animals. We take a piece of everything in our lives from learning from others. So being a tiger is more than being just dangerous and beautiful. It has a purpose of healing the things around itself as well. No one things as tigers being healers, but they really are healers in so many ways.

Tigers have the ability to love more than any other animal on the planet at this time, and I see this in my friend and the way she writes on her blog. Again, I have only know this person since I have been on here for only three months and we have never met before again for the record. But if you take the time to understanding who people are like a tiger you become aware of lesser dangers in your life due to not just taking a person for who they really are. I know that I might sound crazy here but this person free spirit will carry on in everything she does in her life, and it shows in her words to the people that listen to them.

I know that this person will read this, and I know that she will be thinking why are you writing about me for, and to tell you the truth I am writing about you because I see this animal in you that has that beauty to change the world. You aren’t scared to take on anything in front of you. And you never look back on the things that already have happened. Tigers focus on the great things in life. They are family animals they care about there young and they want to help others around them. So next time you see a tiger don’t look at them as to killing you or that they are dangerous. Look at a tiger in the sense I look at this friend, that there is beauty around us if you really want to take it in. And the tiger has learned this from watching the beauty of cranes and panthers and even snakes around him. You can’t do anything alone in this world, you have to learn to have to have the ability to talk to others and understand your purpose. And when you truly understand these principles you will see life like I tend to see it for the first time.

So in closing, I hope that I have taught you a lesson about tigers in a short time span, but more importantly I hope that you see the beauty in people around you as well. I think that you can learn a lot about the people around you just by saying a warm hello, to just knowing that you can look at someone and tell yourself that your going to be alright in then end of things here.

So thank you my friend for making see the tiger today and I hope that you learn something from this post in some way that you will live your life as the free spirits as they animals do…

Well the sun is shinning…

Woke up at 4AM and there was just stars looking out from my bedroom window. It was so amazing yet to think that there are that many stars in the sky. When I was a kid I thought that the stars where for everyone out there that made a wish at some point in there life. So when I look at the stars I still think about all those wishes out there and hope that everyone got there wishes answered some way of form here. The stars are like one big wishing well to me when I think about it. But that again is my way of thinking here. I know that it just peaceful to watching the night sky.

The next things that happens as I was watching it from my room was the sun was starting to come over the horizon just a slight peak of the light coming in from that horizon line. The next thing is that the stars went to hide under the blanket of warm light. I just find this so really neat inside knowing that how God can make things like this happen. I mean I used to never look at things this way before in my life, and to take the time to study it I find that really an amazing thing at this time of my life. There is so much beauty all around us lately and I just wonder why we don’t take anytime to just stop for a few minutes and see the miracles all around us

I just know that nature again is giving us messages everyday. Looking out my window was a sign first off that I will be alright that I lived to see another sun rise. I find this totally amazing that I even get to live another day when most people didn’t make it through the night. So sitting there in my bed looking at the stars this morning at 4AM made me realize that life has so much more to offer than we know. I mean you can’t even get it all done in a lifetime what life is about. But I took the simple road this morning and realized that the sun did shine, and it didn’t have too. But it did. I must take from this message that I must go out and do something different than yesterday. And what that is who knows, and the best part is that I have the sun shinning on my back to help me today in that journey. No better way to end this post by saying this, wrap the things around you that mean the most to you, and to me spirit and energy from mother nature is what I am going to be doing. So, with this I will go out there and hang with the sun on my shoulders and know that I have another day to make that difference out in this world…

March winter snow…

March has started on a great note with snow. It’s hard to believe the white snow is coming down for the first of the month. But then again it is still winter from mother nature point of view. I got up early this morning, and went out for that walk into this fresh powder and felt the snow hit my face. Sometimes when the snow hits your face you feels like it tickles you skin. But today the snow felt so incredible to me because I felt like I was was being kissed by the angels and the angels where telling me I was going to be alright just keep moving forward in your life no matter what. Just being outside with nature there is no better things to be doing. The turkeys were walking across the land today and I felt that I just had to watch them for awhile. I was thinking about what they were doing in the sense of how they survive in this weather, and when it comes to just a life of a turkey.

I mean turkeys are ugly but beautiful birds to be honest with you. At one time this country could of had the turkey instead of the bald eagle as it’s national bird. But the point I am making here the energy of these animals and what they have to do to survive in these conditions. It just makes me realize again the importance of my own existence here in the sense of that I have to keep fighting this on as long as I can.

Walking back to the office I just looked up at the snow and told myself what a better way to starting this month of for me then seeing snow. Snow is pure, snow is something that is really special it cleanses the the things around us in our life. The power of the spirit needs this from time to time knowing that we all deserve to have great things in our lives at this time. I never ever want to go against what mother nature is doing for us. She is telling us to keep this fight going and she has giving everything she could to make this possible for us. The trees we have so that we can get air to breath, and the snow and the rain for us to get water, the wind to move the things that are bad in our life away from us. And then the ground the dirt and soil to telling us that we can put our bare feet and root ourselves when it comes to the troubles of this life time. Mother nature teaches all of that for us.

So in the end, enjoy what is in front of you, and be good to each other, and lets see where the month of March is going to take us…
