Decided to dance a little deeper in life, and wow can spirit dance!

Sunrise

A Perspective Of Life!

….continued from posts ‘As Above, So Below!’ and ‘To Live..First Allow Yourself!’

Is it that moment you look into your newborns eyes and feel a connection way beyond words. Cheer on a friend who has finally stepped into their dreams after so much work. That moment your standing at the alter watching your partner in life walking down the aisle or maybe even just by being happy because at this moment life is good…just as it is.

To achieve all of these, and many, many more of these magical moments we must experience what it took to bring them into being. The struggles, the sweat, the physical and emotional toll that they all take in some way as we build something. A hope, a dream, an expression of something that gives us meaning in all that we do.

I have spoken of these in many ways, how we must experience and know these meanings to understand them truly. One cannot truly understand and appreciate happiness unless they know and understand sadness, and on through those many emotions. They are all a ladder that we climb to see higher and higher, that beauty we can see further and further in life with the wisdom that they show.

I am currently sitting at my kitchen table, among the mess that the ambulance officers had swept away to help me through another quite abrupt ‘life’ experience. My body is still reacting to the medicine I had been on until it decided an allergic response was necessary, careening my immune system so wildly that most symptoms I told the ambulance officer left him shaking his head. My lungs are now filling with fluid and barely enough room left to breath. And after our little chat and a nebulizer to ease my breathing I could feel his empathy as he obtains a promise from me that I will ring my doctor first thing in the morning. I shake my head as I realise I’m being blocked again and need to step through this on my own. And no sleep for at least 12 hours as the adrenal rams my heart up, eyes wide open and a shaking like tree.

In the last two hours this had rapidly reached a point where this emergency call had to happen. To even move about I’m literally gasping like a fish out of water and as I had earlier looked up I see I have to go 30 feet to unlock the door to let them in. Do you know how far 30 feet is? And I am amazed at the next thought from spirit…’it just depends on your perspective’.

And in hindsight life is definitely like that..all of it is our perspective. If your just ducking out for some milk, it does not even compute. But right at this moment and your at your last breath, it has all the meaning in the world. If I don’t unlock that door, they can’t get in.

So my beautiful friends, life does indeed come right down to you, what experiences you get from those many millions of miles you travel, and is indeed in return giving its all to you. Each moment changing that little barometer within to seek that ultimate goal of unconditional love we all look for. And yes, it will step on your toes because you only have a lifetime…this lifetime…a bare 60 odd years to achieve so many things so that the beautiful flower within you will blossom and reach for the sun.

And just to make sure I was listening spirit asked me ‘now that you have perspective, what do you want to do with this time that is left you?’. I sit there and ponder…and each and every thing I come to is summarily dismissed as it no longer has meaning. Until I reach one, one thing that had automatically gone to the bin in that first instance because it just didn’t register but now in hindsight it has more meaning than all that went before…this post.

How many people really get a chance to say thank you to all those that gave him perspective, gave him a love profound in their words and care. Told him of hopes and dreams so that he could indeed find perspective in his own. And I have too, in that few feet to my door is a perspective I didn’t know I had. In feeling I was losing life I had in fact gained it, and in that one magical moment realised that it all was built on a love profound, the one that touches us all.

So remember, all it takes is perspective…your perspective to share that love. Each and every moment a jewel is being formed, a black coal pressured into a majestic diamond sparkling to the world. It takes both sides of every moment to see the heights of that beauty and realise the wisdom it shares with us truly.

So my friends, I love you all…each and every perspective of you, the ones you shared with me to make me exactly who I am. You shared something so profound in each moment we were together in heart, mind and soul. And for that I am ever grateful. Even if for but a moment…for there are worlds…even in those few steps.

Oh, and just one more perspective…in all that you do, hold your heart in your hands. It is amazing how much more gently we become in making a life with it out in front to see and feel. Could you be angry at someone who was holding their hearts up to you? Lead with your heart and this world will change beyond what you could ever imagine, and trust me, it is much, much more than 30 feet! πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  2. You write so beautifully! Such wonderful words! Would love for you to check out my blog and let me know what you think ❀😊

    • Mark Lanesbury

      Thank you Isha for your kind words, they are appreciated. I have gone to your blog and read a few of your verses but alas I tried to comment but the WordPress ‘bug’ has blocked me from commenting on yours and many other sites, even friends I’ve had for years. There is no rhyme nor reason to who I can or cannot comment to. I can usually ‘like’ a post but cannot go further I’m afraid. And there are many on here in the same boat. Who knows, maybe we are giving too much love away in our words and scaring someone into silencing us πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹ πŸ˜‚ 🀣

  3. What a beautiful Angel You are, Mark. Thank You so very much for this. Saw it over at dear Leon’s. I will carry this with me. Sending You SOOO much Love. β€οΈπŸ™πŸΌπŸ€—πŸŒ€πŸ’•

    • Mark Lanesbury

      Thank you kind lady, your words are that change that all this land needs. To finally release our pain in facing it and understanding truly that we all go through ‘our’ things so that we can ‘see’ what we are in experiencing it. Much love and light to you also πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  4. Gosh Mark, I sure hope you start feeling better soon. It’s been a rough year for you for sure. Like all hard times we learn so much by going through them. And you my friend are full of so much wisdom and love. Take special care of you. xo

    • Mark Lanesbury

      It has been a journey Michele, a very testing one at that. And hopefully a clearer heart will emerge to ‘see’ in a better light.
      Thank you for your kind words, it is a blessing to feel their strength and to give me courage to face its destination ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  5. Love your words on your front page!
    Look forward to reading your work!

    I think those of us FORTUNATE to have gone through and survived the hard times are blessed in the most amazing ways. Peace & love.πŸ•ŠπŸ¦‹

      Thank you Denise. I was one of those people that thought there was no sanity in this world and in a moment of anger I lashed out at ‘God’ (at the time in the middle of a divorce and a non believer) and asked how could this world be anything remotely like a paradise but a cesspit. And I dared/asked Him to show me. Word of warning, beware what you ask for…it just may be given you πŸ˜‚ 🀣. And so with great love He showed me stuff, lots of stuff…and even with a bonus. I got to experience everything first and then be shown its beauty in its understanding so I could indeed appreciate just how magnificent this mayhem is.
      Love and light to you also dear lady, and you are so right, those hard times are indeed the making of us πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

      • Absolutely!! There’s a group of us that has happened to!!!
        I believe just for that reason!!! While so many are lost and struggling this year, I see magick because it makes ALL THE TRAUMA of my past make sense!
        Glad we connected! Enjoy this craziness together. We will be the change! πŸ•ŠπŸ¦‹πŸ™

  6. Continued healing, love and light is flowing to you 24 hrs a day and I believe I am not wrong saying that all of our hearts are with you. Cheering you on from the sidelines and wishing you a speedy recovery and get well. I too wish you wouldn’t have to experience this and believe better times are in order. Much love my friend. Take good care of yourself. We need you. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’™πŸ¦‹

    • Mark Lanesbury

      And I thank you for it truly dear lady, I am being tested indeed and that love and energy you are sharing is a Godsend. It has been an incredible experience in itself but also from the beauty that is being shared from everyone on here and afar. And indeed it humbles me to know it, gives great strength to share it and a true appreciation that you all may be ‘human’ every single day, but underneath beats the hearts of Angels. Thank you very much, and yes, better times ahead. Love and light to you also Rhapsody ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

      • It is my pleasure and privilege being able to send you energy and if it brings just the tiniest amount of comfort, I couldn’t ask for more.
        I am so glad you are surrounded by love and light of those who care so much about you. It is indeed a wonderful and healing feeling. Amen to that and thank you for sending some of it my way. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’™πŸ¦‹

        • Mark Lanesbury

          Worth every drop of it indeed kind lady, laced with love it is a healing indeed. And yes, it has been a great thing to see and feel you and all these other great caring, beautiful bloggers to come to my aid at such a time. I will be forever grateful of its healing and love within it. Namaste ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

          • I am so glad you have many watching out for you and truly caring about your well being my friend. Namaste πŸ’™πŸ™πŸΌ

            • Mark Lanesbury

              Just as you do kind lady, I am looking forward to your healing soon. Getting into receiving mode as we speak, thank you πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

    Mark, my dear, dear friend. I was rushed this morning so I put your post aside to read leisurely. I am sorry I did. Once again you have touched my heart and I am weeping. I want desperately to hold your heart in my hands and heal you. But I cannot. All I can do is tell you how much you mean to me. How much I want to wrap my arms around you and make your pain go away. But I cannot. So I will send you my love through the ether. I feel helpless but not hopeless. You’re in my thoughts and in my prayers. I do love you Mark.

    • Mark Lanesbury

      You have healed me dear lady, your words of that love are the most powerful in the universe and they have touched the one thing that is eternal…my heart…and you moved it. No other thing comes with us if we leave this world but that beauty within us all, an unconditional that glows a little higher as we understand it more and more. For that you have my love too, a little lighter, a little brighter and most certainly knowing it has been touched by your care and prayers my friend. With much love and a big hug, thank you πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹ xox

  8. you always get me thinking Mark! God bless you!

    • Mark Lanesbury

      And God bless you also dear lady. Apparently my journey is God keeping me out of trouble and off the streets. Trust me to find another way lol πŸ˜‚ 🀣 ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  9. Mark, we only realize how relative everything is when we are not able to do the things that we took for granted. I don’t think you did take anything for granted but we realize it even more then. You described the situation very clearly and yes, perspective is so subjective. It is so hard to accept that the kindest people have to go through the toughest of experiences. But as we know, those experiences provoke the most loving insights. God only picks those who are ready to see. I am sending you the most healing vibes that you make it through this torture very soon in order to have a lot of time to bring the healing essence of this amazing insight to the world. Much love to you, Mark!

    • Mark Lanesbury

      Thank you Erika (see, I did it. Spelt it good 🀣), and thank you kind lady for reaching out and caring as only a healer can do. The love you give does indeed touch that one place in us all, as only something built from such beauty can. And in that you show that an open heart is our goal, to share, care and heal in all we do. Your new healing website shows that incredibly, the moment I landed on your page it spoke to me with the very thing that holds that healing…an open heart as each page unfolded. May it bless the many in your journey.
      And I think you are right, it is my time to face something quite confronting. My previous ‘experience’ of death was very profound…but there is no ‘safety net or backup’ in facing this as it is. And I have told everyone that death does not scare me because of what I know…but I did not ‘know’ the actual experience of it, from beginning to end. It has ‘touched’ places I never knew existed, thoughts that had never been uttered, and even been ‘touched’ so powerfully by you and others that above all creates something very deeply within me. A ‘knowing’ that even though we trip and stumble through our journey, beneath it all is a connection unlike anything we experience down here. Our hearts in its care, as we are guided to ‘see’ the beauty beyond it.
      Much love to you also Erika, and your love and healing received with an open heart, thank you πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

      • I am amazed by the love you that comes from you, and surrounds you, and which is flowing from your lines. Amazed by the example you share while going through this process. Amazed through and through. I can only imagine what thoughts and freelings are triggered which never showed up before and without this experience and the insight behind. It is such a unique experience you are going through… I am truly amazed in so many ways.
        Thank you for your loving and appreciative words. You are touching not only my heart but my soul. It is my deepest wish to provide healing with what ever I do, and your words make me so happy. Thank you!
        I saw your email but was not able to respond (actually, I am still at work… psst). Thank you for your wonderful feedback regarding my site and no worries at all about the spelling of my name. It made me smile every time I saw how you spelled it. It just came to my mind when I wrote my name and thought, I mention it… hehe. I think I replied to your email too this way… lol!
        How are you right now, Mark?

        • Mark Lanesbury

          Just spent the night in hospital, my lungs are reacting to something and blowing up like an asthma attack…but not. And in the middle of it spirit gave me a thought ‘what am I still holding onto’. Which shocked me at first but I of all people should know we cover those things we fear and some experience is trying to find itself into the open so I can heal…hence what I am now going through. Plus I also get the ‘feeling’ that a rebirth is a part of what is happening, as in…achieving that mix of what went before in my life now requires that in ‘knowing’ it I can now become something more in that knowing. Like not understanding happiness until we know and understand sadness.
          No one said anything about all this for a rebirth, I thought you just went downtown and paid the fee πŸ˜‚ 🀣
          Thank you for your loving thoughts and blessings Erika, and the permission to use the power of your name ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

          • That’s a profound insight you are sharing here, Mark. All the things we are holding on to and that are actually working against our wellbeing, need an outlet to be released. But the exit is plugged up and it needs an opener to let it drift to the surface to leave. That unplugging is mostly a painful experience (physically or mentally) but it opens a dam and finally spills the poison off. Some of those destructive things are hidden so deep that we don’t even know anymore what it is or that it is there. We are only caught by emotions in particular situations or by physical reactions which we don’t know where they come from. It is then in the process of unplugging to understand and let it go… to heal!
            I hope the painful part of your healing process is soon turning into the recovery process. Much love, Mark!

            • Mark Lanesbury

              Beautifully said dear lady, that is its process indeed. And thank you, I too do hope the dam bursts soon as I am as weak as a kitten and the wheezing sounds escaping from my lungs sound like a hissing cat too. I wonder what meanings cats have in our journey, probably midnight journeys as I have been doing in ambulances. Much love and light to you also Erika, may the winds of your gifts be held aloft with that love ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

              • It is amazing you manage to make me smile. It is priceless that you kept your humor which only proves how aware you are of everything and that you stopped identifying with anything physical. Thank you, Mark!

              • Mark Lanesbury

                Ah dear lady, I have in fact overstepped that mark of my physicality. Another ‘event’ has visited and shown me my foolishness in allowing myself to become that spirituality above this physicality. They are of the same master, in that love we seek, even in the very simple act of breathing does great things come. I had it taken away, my physicality, to make me realise, appreciate, be grateful for that poor creature I have abused, maimed, scarred and even poisoned in my pursuit of happiness.
                And like those great words have said ‘it is only in losing something does its worth sing the loudest’. I’m a bit weak at the moment but hopefully the new post will be up soon.
                Thank you for your care Erika, it has been a great soul strengthener to feel that energy as I have been going through this and it is appreciated with all my heart, thank you. Love and light to you also my friend ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½

              • I read your latest post and understand what you are talking about here. I am glad that you have so many people around you sending you loving thoughts to carry you a bit with their love. I am very thankful that this does strengthen you and provides some net for you to make it over these truly very very hard times. Much love, Mark πŸ’–

              • Mark Lanesbury

                Dear lady, the one thing that has kept me afloat is the energy from the love and care from you and others as this has gone on. In that I am very grateful.
                Much love and light to you also Erika, your blessings have kept the light on πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

              • I think that is what the majority of mankind has to learn again: giving love and accepting it! There is no greater and more healing connection between us. That is what heals the world!
                Thank you, Mark πŸ’–

        • Mark Lanesbury

          I was so focused on ‘how was I feeling right now’ that I missed your heart my friend. And in truth how could I? Your words were very beautiful and did indeed explain why I did these posts. They are a unique walk down my path even though from a very different perspective. Spirit ‘nudged’ their creation so that they too can show their is beauty in it all. Each and every experience is taking us closer, to open our hearts and become one with ourselves and in doing so, all else. This duality down here is a magic all its own, a very profound touch on our individual makeups that in experiencing them will allow us to see that ‘whole’. Thank you again ‘healer lady’, your heart is beating strongly πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

          • I wanted to know how your are doing and that was what matterd to me. But thank you for your thoughtfulness.
            Yes, the duality is a breathtaking tool to show us what works, what doesn’t work, and how things work. It is interesting that it can take us so long to understand it in particular aspects in our lives. But that law will always work, and in the end, it is our blessing. We knew before we came here and forgot in order to get our lessons.
            I thank you for your healing messages, Mark πŸ’–

  10. Heart in hand, loving kindness and healing right back at you! Be well and know that all shall be well.

    • Mark Lanesbury

      Thank you George, the care and love shared all through this has touched me more than I can say. And one thing that has stood out for me is this…regardless of what we go through, our empathy, our compassion and our love rise to the surface through so many incredible circumstances above and beyond our fears. To do this is a powerful thing indeed. And for that, I thank you for those blessings πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  11. Once again you leave me spinning my friend. How do I comment? What words can I say? I just ache inside that you must go through this suffering. Yes you have to go 30ft to open the door, but I want you to go 30,000 more to keep going and being present in our lives! I trust you are still home and not being hospitalized? Home is where you need to be surrounded by everything that matters to you. I pray the old medicine clears out of your system quickly and your body can begin to rebuild it’s strength. I wish I could send more than prayers your way. I wish I could send you a new body in perfect running condition. I cannot do that. My thoughts and heart and love are yours Mark and I will continue to send prayers your way. So glad you are able to keep us updated. I worry….Try going 35 ft today and maybe 40 tomorrow….Get well my friend…Hugs…VK ❀️

    • Mark Lanesbury

      Yes, still at home VK. I’ve even tried twice to get to a hospital via the ambulance officers but circumstances blocked me both times. I have even tried one more time to connect with my doctor to make sure I’m not missing a link to something else I need to see. He will get back to me this afternoon. Hmmm, where have I heard that before πŸ˜€ Anyway dear lady, the important part of this journey is the beautiful, loving, care and healing that you and others have touched me with. To see it rise in these circumstances with all that is happening in the world gives me great hope that love will indeed survive, thrive and create a beauty in each of us to become that unconditional love that we all are. Your love, hopes and wishes are gratefully received dear lady and held within with the love you shared them with, thank you. Now for 35, I have your hugs holding me…its the stairwell πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹ πŸ˜‚ 🀣
