As we journey through this life, we all walk many roads that are made for us to walk .

A lot of these roads come with potholes ,which is where and  when our road of life  gets rough.

When we look back we realize that we have made it through them!

No matter how many times you fell into a pothole on the road , you got up and kept moving forward!

It is these  moments that I call a learning experiences!

You can always fall back in memory to these times when you were in need of  help, however,  when you look down this road of your past, it will give you some of the answers you are looking  for when things get rough again!

Always  the road we walk is  full of potholes!  It is how we learn!

No matter who you are, remember that  just like the real potholes in the roads of our world ,you  can choose to fill the potholes, however,  sometimes they just keep coming back until we have learned what we need.  At that time they will stay filled and smooth and never become one of life’s potholes again.

You can go always back and visit when you want or when you need a reminder of the lesson you learned,  so if you hit a pothole in life use your past as a guide.

These can lead you to a new road, one without all the drama but filled with your own understanding of  your movement forward and learning .

No matter who is walking with you remember that it is still your road and the learning is yours.

Enjoy the walk, and personally I know it does get much better as long as you keep walking.

As I move forward through my life I recognize that I am getting older, and one of the ways I know that I am getting older is my changing  memory….

  • When I was a child I remembered everything, even those things I did not know that I knew from this lifetime and other lifetimes,
  • As I moved from childhood to being a teenager, memory became something of convenience, only remembering those things that I wished to remember in the moment, usually for my own advantage….
  • As I became an adult I had to remember everything for everyone including myself, my partner, my children, my job, my parents, my pets and and my world.
  • Now that I am becoming an elder, I no longer have to remember anything for anyone other than myself and it is amazing how lists have now become my new way of life.
  • When I pass on from this life to the next, everything that may be said about me will be “In Memory”

What I am learning from all of this is that memory has been a wonderful training ground for living in the moment, and if I need to remember anything beyond this moment today I need to make a list, until I no longer need to have a list as I look down upon all that is.

Peace, love, light and blessings

the name of the author is the first to go
followed obediently by the title, the plot,
the heartbreaking conclusion, the entire novel
which suddenly becomes one you have never read,
never even heard of,

as if, one by one, the memories you used to harbor
decided to retire to the southern hemisphere of the brain,
to a little fishing village where there are no phones.

Long ago you kissed the names of the nine Muses goodbye
and watched the quadratic equation pack its bag,
and even now as you memorize the order of the planets,

something else is slipping away, a state flower perhaps,
the address of an uncle, the capital of Paraguay.

Whatever it is you are struggling to remember,
it is not poised on the tip of your tongue,
not even lurking in some obscure corner of your spleen.

It has floated away down a dark mythological river
whose name begins with an L as far as you can recall,
well on your own way to oblivion where you will join those
who have even forgotten how to swim and how to ride a bicycle.

No wonder you rise in the middle of the night
to look up the date of a famous battle in a book on war.
No wonder the moon in the window seems to have drifted
out of a love poem that you used to know by heart.

The swiftness of the mind is amazing!

When I have a thought, that thought will register in my conscious mind just long enough to do what I need to do with it and then it will disappear as swiftly as it arrived once I make a conscious decision and have decided what to do!

Now here lies a problem, once I make the decision, if I don’t act on the decision that I have made right away, the decision and the thought have a tendency to disappear.

I used to put this down to the older I get the worse my memory is….however in reality when I focus in the moment and act on the decision I make in the moment, none of this creates a lack of memory and everything does get dealt with right here, right now no matter what age you are!

Peace, love, light and blessings!

I have spent many years attempting to understand human memory and recall!

I know all of the theory of the mind, that the mind is both conscious and subconscious, the fight and flight syndrome but what I was looking for came to me this morning while I was watching the fairy tale wedding on TV at 3:00 a.m.

Very simply memory is choice and choice is Recall or Not!

We always have choice with everything we do including remembering, how freeing is that!  When we need to remember we do!

Will I remember the Royal Wedding?  If I choose to or need to!

Peace, love, light and blessings as we choose to remember from moment to moment or not!

It’s a beautiful day

when the sun hides behind the trees,

and the leaves dance,as the wind blows softly,

the birds chirp their sweet melody,

almost to say they were so happy.

You listen to the wind,whistling it’s lovely tune,

as you watch the flowers,that are in full bloom.

You see the colours pink, red, and blue,

there is nothing else,you would rather do,

than lay in this grassy meadow and fall asleep,

listening to the birds,peaceful sounds.

As I lay my head down,the memory will stay,

of the scenery,

on this cool summer day

A gathering of souls
Appearing from diverse journeys and learnings
Each infused with memory cells of the wisdom that is the creator
Individually carry a diametric piece to the ultimate puzzle
The intrinsic worth of the human spirit rouses and cajoles them
To relay words, thoughts and feelings of inspiration and
That is timeless and multi dimensional
None stand in complete perfection but are perfection in their intent
To deliver an annotation to their brothers and sisters
That promotes hope and awakenings
To revive the human spirit and allow us all to soar once again
To let go of the suffocating technology and arrogance
To release the suffering and poor self image
And honour the glory of who we are
In order to celebrate the gratification of simply

Written by Rain before she passed. Peace, love, light and blessings as you travel forward my friend!
