Path-Of-Light

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

Walking on the Path of Right, the Path Of Light, does not mean that one who chooses to is not faced with challenges and temptations nor that one is or becomes exempt from making mistakes. We all make mistakes because it is more so through our mistakes in life that we learn, grow in character, with the hopes and intent at becoming better individuals as we do. Therefore, we are all really, "works in progress", with hopefully, the emphasis on 'progress'. Otherwise, we would be regressive works instead of progressive. ♥ 
"Path Of Light"

For those of us who choose
To walk on the Path Of Light,
It isn't always easy but
It is the path that's right.
It's not that we aren't tempted
Each and every day,
Because we are daily
Goaded to go astray.
With each new day, there are
New challenges to meet,
Waiting to bring us down,
Our courage to defeat.
So yes, we may falter,
Misstep some here and there,
But with the Light within us...
Strong, a compelling glare,
We cannot wander far,
From our shining star
Nor can we stray,
Nor get lost from the ray,
As long as we nurture
That which fuels our own Light
And this is Love Divine
That keeps it burning bright.
The Path Of Light
Shines bright
Because of
Divine Love.

Compassion

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

Compassion, an Element of Love, is indeed an Element this world's in desperate need of. ♥ 

"Compassion"

Art/poem by Artsieladie

Laugh and smile and the world will join you.
Cry and lament and the world will abandon you.
Drama is always drama when it's someone else's pain,
It only becomes real when it hits the home domain.

If we took just a little time to look just a little deeper,
Instead of passing judgment to appease our apathetic creature,
We might be able to help avert another's inner pain,
Bring them some sunshine through their pouring rain.

This is called Compassion, the world's in short supply
And instead of helping others, we simply pass them by,
Or we criticise and condemn, adding to their grief,
Instead of listening with intent to bring them some relief.

We must try not to be too busy for someone in need,
Never too preoccupied to hear another's plead.
Another's pain can be masked, hidden by disguise,
Concealed in their heart, behind 'happy' eyes;
Or their pain can be shown in ways we will reject,
Often and in ways obscured we will not expect.

Many times a person suffering from too great a pain
Will attempt to test the waters, trying to ascertain,
To see who'll care enough about what they're going through,
Genuinely concerned when they ask, "What can I do?"
Many put up walls to see who'll care enough
To climb over them just to call their bluff.

Sharing one's pain can be more painful to disclose,
Because of others' judgment, condemnation they impose.
There is no greater pain than the pain within.
Those without fault have forgotten their own sin.

When a person finds the courage to from others' help seek,
We must not criticise, make fun, or call them weak.
Instead, we must show Compassion, try to understand,
The courage it has taken them to seek a helping hand.

We may or may not be able to help them or assist,
But this doesn't mean that their pain does not exist.
That all too familiar, "There's nothing I can do",
Excusing one from caring, a convenient exit cue,
Is too often put in motion just to circumvent
One's lack of empathy of callous heart intent.


When others cry for help, express their own despair,
Often all they need is to know that others care.
A little validation of what they're going through,
Can make a world of difference, another's strength, renew.
But when with callous heart, a troubled soul's dismissed,
It may be the final straw and of death, the catalyst.

Oh, this world would be a much better place,
If we took a little time to see the heart behind the face,
A heart that may be suffering but too afraid to tell,
A heart that may be drowning in a painful swell.

Take a little time to listen to a heart caught in despair,
For you may need the same one day, someone that will care.

Wounds

Hello all, from Artsieladie!

There are just some wounds from life that never completely go away even when the cause of the wound(s) is done with. Since we can't rid ourselves entirely of them, we have to find a way to live with them, accept the fact they are a part of who we are. We must incorporate them into our being without wreaking havoc with our emotions, without giving us more pain and inflicting pain on others attempting to rid ourselves of these wounds and the pain thereof. How well we succeed depends on our approach, our attitude. Negative begets negative. Hatred and bitterness begets more of the same and perpetuates resentment, denies forgiveness to be possible, and keeps the wounds fresh and on the surface.

Everything we endure in life has a silver lining, although there are some things that seem like they do not have and the proverbial silver lining is very difficult to identify. But keep searching for that silver lining and when you find it, your attitude will become more positive and positive begets more positive. Enabling the inversion process, finding positive in negative, empowers us because we won't then feel we've been put through whatever it may be for nothing. Once we have uncovered the positive, we can then build on and give power to the positive instead of continually allowing the negative to be in control of us. 


We have no dominion over others, their actions/behaviours and their choices, only over ourselves. We are the captain of our ship. We either aspire to sail among happier, more placid waters or we settle for remaining in the rougher seas. We must aspire for the fore, for the breaks, where we can recoup our strength, courage, and sustainability because there will be more rough seas to come. This is inevitable in life. If we don't have these breaks, we will become more and more susceptible to being and feeling negative, inviting within us a state of hopelessness and a destruction of our self worth, our own value as a human being.

Hence, my quote:

“When we understand there's a purpose for our misfortunes and learn to use them to help others, to understand, to have compassion and empathy for others, especially in their time of need, we then empower ourselves to invert our misfortunes into blessings of unspeakable value, affording us the ability to negate the negative energy and darkness and transform it into positive energy and light.”
~ Artsieladie Quote.

Quote by Artsieladie
 "Wounds"

Art by Artsieladie

When Wounds are deep, too deep to heal,
Of memories engraved, no time can steal.
Hearts are tender, easily scarred
Will often be for always marred.

When Wounds are deep, too deep to heal,
There's endless bleeding and pain to feel.
The heart will try to offset, rebound,
Strengthen itself to work around.

When Wounds are deep, too deep to mend,
Remaining parts must rely, upon depend
Where from and of a strengthened state
Is obtained, either by Love or by hate.

When Wounds are deep beyond repair
How they're handled will then declare,
Whether the heart will rise in Light above
Or succumb to darkness, refusing Love.

When Wounds are deep, too deep to heal,
We try to numb them, pretend unreal,
But avoidance reaps more pain to face,
For seclusion of, breeds self disgrace.

When Wounds are deep, too deep to remove,
We must invert them to ourselves improve,
Use them as lessons, remind us to care,
That others too have Wounds to bear.

When Wounds are deep, too deep to erase,
We must accept them, face with grace.
When the pain of Wounds renders us sobbing,
Seek then more Love to ease the throbbing.

When Wounds run deep, too deep to negate,
Often we're tempted to, in the bitters of hate,
Bury them deeper out of mind and sight,
Denying their existence to us seems right.

When Wounds are deep, too deep to heal,
Only Love can soothe, make us better feel.
Though Love won't wipe all of our pain away,
Love provides us strength with courage to stay.

So, when Wounds cut deep with pain surreal,
If we call on Love to intervene, help us deal
With the bitter woes, pain of, life will give,
Wounds won't steal from us our joy to live.


"When Wounds come deep, too deep to abolish,
Let Love show how they can, our character polish."
As long as our hearts are kept open, receptive,
Love will reign within with its Light reflective.

Dream-Of-My-Life

Hello all, from Artsieladie!

This is a collaboration piece of art and poetry +Hans Galversson and I created together, a romantic piece depicting two people vowing their Love for each other. ♥ 

"The Dream Of My Life"
Art/poem by Artsieladie/Sir Hans

The Dream Of My Life... Has just come true,
For The Dream Of My Life...Is marrying you!

From the lady...
To cherish and love... 
To have and to hold... 
From this day forward... 
As we grow old.

I’m so richly blessed,
My life’s become whole,
For sharing it with you,
The mate of my soul.
Before you, my dear,
I was broken and beat,
You wrapped me in love,
Now healed and complete.

You rescued my heart
My gallant knight
From a heartless king
And his wicked plight.

My heart that was torn
In shreds so tattered,
Bruised and abused
Viciously battered,
Ever so gently
With patience so rare,
You pieced it together,
Tenderly with care.

So, to my heart,
The key I give
To my castle as well
With my king I’ll live.

My husband, my lover,
My very best friend,
My love is forever,
Of time, ‘til the end.
                



































                
From the gentleman...
For richer or for poorer...
I’ll remain by your side...
In sickness or in health...
With you, I’ll reside.

My life is now richer,
Poor it cannot be,
Unless my dear love,
You’re not with me.
For without you, my love,
I’m a half, barely so,
But with you, I’m whole,
My heart is aglow.

I’m infected with love,
An incurable bug
It can only be treated
With your each tender hug.

With daily doses of kisses
From your sweet lips of wine,
And romantic encounters
On, our loving to dine,
Are all that I need
To keep my infliction at bay
And your presence must linger
Onward, day after day.

My overall health,
My happiness, too,
My richness of spirit,
Depends upon you.

My woman, my lady,
My friend, my wife,
My love is forever,
For the rest of my life.

...Lady and Gentleman together...
Yes, The Dream Of Our Lives
Has at last come true,
For The Dream Of Our Lives
We now share, me and you!
