WE ARE ALL ANGELSWritten by Arleen M. Kaptur
Continued from page 1
By having just one wing, our grandparents needed each other, our parents needed others, and as children it was always easier to play games and have fun with someone else. Even if you live alone, and have only one wing, books, music, television, or whatever source of information you may have, there just waiting for you is someone with another wing. It may be a writer who inspires you with their written words, or a musician whose music soothes your soul. Whoever it is, and whatever method is used to reach you, with two wings you have strength and endurance to face a new day and accept challenges and possibilities. Now this is truly deep - no one is ever really alone. Even if you are totally isolated on an island from all other human contact, you share your garden, or your fresh fish with creatures that inhabit your area. Nature accepts and provides. It gives you earth to plant, and you give your left-overs back through careful recycling, mulching, or feeding of assorted animals and life forms. It’s fun sometimes just to think of how this entire system works.
So let’s celebrate knowing that we each have one-wing and that to soar in sky, to reach moon, and to fly amid planets and other worlds, we need each other. In whatever method your other wing may come (personally, in written word, music, or nature) accept genius in plan and rejoice that you are a one-wing delight to every form of life on our planet. The possibilities are limitless, challenges are many, and oh, wonder of it all. ©Arleen M.Kaptur 2002 June

This Side Of The RainbowWritten by Helaine Iris
Continued from page 1
As I stood there, alone, in an empty parking lot I let myself imagine a delightful land where my dreams came true. I thought about Oz and how Scarecrow, Tin man and Lion were all expressing their gifts without realizing it. I began to ponder my dreams and where I let fear and limitation stop me. Where I hold back and wait for “the right’ moment or hesitate before I step into an eager world ready to receive my gifts.
In that precious moment as rainbow faded and my consciousness returned to normal I had a renewed sense of inspiration. I was ready to live my life more fully right here, right now. Allow my dreams to come into being, express all I am with out holding back. Not wait for a Wizard to grant me a diploma that tells me what I already know.
What are you using to postpone living your dreams? What gifts and talents are you holding back from world? What if you started fully living, right here, right now? Where would you start?
Is it a new career that is courting you, finally writing book you’ve been dreaming about, taking a class or pulling out your old art supplies? Why not grant yourself diploma to be who you know you are. Why not take a step in that direction today. Right now. Live your life on this side of rainbow.
It’s your life…imagine possibilities!
