"You cannot see anything that you do not first contemplate as a reality." ~ Ramtha
"Nature never repeats herself, and the possibilities of one human soul will never be found in another." -- Elizabeth Cady Stanton
"Time is a created thing. To say 'I don't have time,' is like saying, 'I don't want to.'"
"Since you are like no other being ever created since the beginning of time, you are incomparable." -- Brenda Ueland
"You must be the change you wish to see in the world." -- Gandhi
"In any way that men love me in that same way they find my love: for many are the paths of men, but they all in the end come to me."
-- Song of God, Bhagavad Gita
"Until we take how we see ourselves (and how we see others) into account, we will be unable to understand how others see and feel about themselves and their world. Unaware, we will project our intentions on their behavior and call ourselves objective."
-- Stephen Covey
"Chronos is clocks, deadlines, watches, calendars, agendas, planners, schedules, beepers. Chronos is time at her worst. Chronos keeps track... Chronos is the world's time. Kairos is transcendence, infinity, reverence, joy, passion, love, the Sacred. Kairos is intimacy with the Real. Kairos is time at her best. ... Kairos is Spirit's time. We exist in chronos. We long for kairos. That's our duality. Chronos requires speed so that it won't be wasted. Kairos requires space so that it might be savored. We do in chronos. In kairos we're allowed to be ... It takes only a moment to cross over from chronos into kairos, but it does take a moment. All that kairos asks is our willingness to stop running long enough to hear the music of the spheres." -- Sarah Ban Breathnach
When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I am a born activist
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Education, Our Planet, Violence, Inflation, Human Rights, Our Shrinking Freedom, Other
So what is it?
Hard to explain in this spot... In a nutshell... A Mindset! Change how you look at the world and the world will change!
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
I believe people are afraid to see anything outside of their own Life-box. I watch when they mechanically repeat, almost chant-like, their beliefs. Refusing to open their mental doors to other peaceful possibilities. It is this same attitude that causes people to push their believes and at times even their behavior onto others. By any means necessary. Almost as, if they can get others to agree (or afraid to disagree) then they, of course, were right all along! I use to get very distraught over this mindset... I have since learned what you think about you attract...
Now, I realize as Rumi so aptly put it, 'You are not only the mirror, but the face within.'
Can we change the world?
More about me
My name is Marsha and over the years I have played many roles... Grand-daughter, daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, Sunday school teacher, student and most recently healer.
In spirituality, I now follow my deeper knowing which, if one needs to label it or put it in a box... Is an eclectic blend of Buddhism, Druidism, Shamanism, Huna and A Course in Miracles. My favorite role is as a single Grand-mother who enjoys healing and walking a true path.
I am a self-employed Registered Massage Therapist, and own a business called "Dragonfly Massage and Energywork'. I am certified and registered in Therapeutic Massage Therapy, Triggerpoint, Meridian Tapping and Usui Reiki Grand Master Teacher as well as many other energy systems.
I also have a Spruz network called Energy's Soul Mission dedicated to sharing alternate cultures, spirituality and healing systems with the idea to knowledge is the way to PEACE.
I love to paint, work in the garden, work with clay, read, write and work on the computer, and walk the dogs. I share my life with 2 dogs, a 3 yr old Yorkie called Miss Ibbie; and Cicada, a 9 yr old Shepherd Staffordshire cross.
Whereas, I enjoy my life as a healer immensely, lately I have developed a tremendous itch to write, I even dream about it.
Not everyone comes wearing
a red dress.
Many are content with
white shirts, plaid skirts, blue jeans.
The wounded are wearing
because for them
the world is prematurely cold.
The silly and the cleverest
are dressed as clowns.
And the angels are
naked, between the eyelashes
of our setting sun.
Not everyone comes wearing
the reminder of black,
although pain is everywhere
and loss attends us.
Those who are painted in blood
have wept in the wasting of war.
And those who are
painted with light
are here to heal us.
even if I came to you
in the rags of weariness,
the cloak of invisibility or
dust of neglect, the
web of a spider,
would you offer me a drink of water
and help to decide
a way, at the crossroads of life?
If I look into your
hands, what will I find:
a golden thread,
the strength of beauty,
a loaf of bread?
