When a Rock Melts to Molten Lava

When you refer a strong person as a rock, you think of them as a main force of a foundation in which helps you with keeping yourself steady. Often times, these rocks tend to attract more rocks which further strengthens their force which in due time can build an ultimate fortress. A fortress so strong it protects the village in which inhabits behind the fortress so the can grow strong, survive and thrive.


Of course, like any good fortress, a series of outside forces wants to make an attempt to invade and destroy the peace in which it tries to bestow. Not just from other invading villages but from other forces such as weather, time, and erosion. This is why we do our best to fortify and maintain our fortresses so it can continue to do it’s job at protecting it’s village. This why we honor the warriors of our past who go beyond the fortress to fight off invading forces so they cannot reach it in the first place. Why we respect the contractors and carpenters who built the fortress in the first place and help maintain it with constant repairs, check ups, and attention. Why when in time a fortress falls, the village gathers together to fight to the death to protect what is in their village while others evacuate their young so they can further the path of the village to get a fresh start.

Of course, it should not come to that if you maintain and respect the fortress in the first place. We get so comfortable and safe at times we do not think about its maintenance that when it does fall, we tend to put the blame on the fortress for not standing rather than ourselves for keeping up with it’s maintenance. A fortress is just a fortress, it can only do so much on it’s own for so long.

That is the one thing we as humans have a terrible habit, which is keeping up with maintenance. We do it to our bodies, our relationships, our homes, our careers, almost everything. We get so caught up in comfort that we take for granted blessings we have rather than counting them so they can continue to grow. The most thankless often feel empty because they focus on what they lack rather than be thankful for what they do have. Even I am guilty of this behavior because I am someone who strives to move forward the best I can. Of course as the years go by I see so much to be thankful for. I once met a man who told me that instead of counting sheep to put him to sleep, he counted his blessings which always puts him at ease.

So know this, if someone is your rock. Love them, cherish them, maintain your relationship with them. Of course when they start to crumble, be there the best you can to support them in their times of need as much as they have been to you. Just remember, sometimes your rock may not reach out to you because they are so used to being your rock, just keep an eye on them to make sure they’re ok.

Back From The Deep Dark Pits of Despair

Or the best title I could come up with after going through some weird depression episode. Ah depression, something a good majority of people I know who fight this terrible fight within themselves. While at times it can be difficult to overcome those thought forms, sometimes you just need to pull yourself together and keep on moving. Then again, that’s way I also bought that ” Always Keep Fighting” Tee Shirt from that one campaign since the proceeds from that went to a non-profit that helps with depression and suicide prevention.

So I have been using my facebook page a bit more

And I’m starting to post more photos with info and such. I actually got my hands on a more technologically advanced phone with a better camera so the photos are coming on a lot better and the fact I can do macro photography with my phone actually excites me. I’m going to be doing more magickal related posts along with some more success oriented posts. The difference though is all the photos I’ll be using for those posts will be photos I personally take (Which I’m well aware of eventually watermarking them) instead of taking them off the internet. So when I make posts on plants, stones, and other items they will be photos from my personal collection. This will also include recipes and other things.

Now I have other plans instore, first one being a newsletter and possible a few e-books including a couple of free materials. I’m making the time to get these done, now especially since we are in our slow season at work.

So, I end this post with a song I’ve had on repeat the past three days, it’s in Japanese but it’s become my new happy song.

Which is here
