One Should be Proud of Oneself for Setting Love’s Sail Forward my Good Mateys!

Some people, I’ve seen this, do not have the cognitive ability to see they are wrong. The closest they get to awareness is self-pity and regret for what they feel they have suffered in the instance where they are told they are wrong.

Though they do cry Oscar worthy tears for their own pain, they do not like themselves so to them your “self-love” talk is asenine. Love yourself and let that be enough to walk away.

Courtesy of Peter Paul & Mary:

There is a ship and she sails the sea
She’s loaded deep, as deep can be
But not as deep as the love I’m in
I know not if I sink or swim
I leaned my back against an oak
Thinking it was a trusty tree
But first it bent and then it broke
Just as my love proved false to me
Oh, love is gentle, and love is kind
The sweetest flower when first it’s new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like the mornin’ dew
The water is wide, I cannot get o’er
Neither have I the wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row my love and I

Last, don’t try to save them, they’re adults that choose their own path (often stubbornly) 24/7 365 just as everyone has to. You’ve chosen to love yourself, you’ve chosen right. “One Should be Proud of Oneself for Setting Love’s Sail Forward my Good Mateys!” ❤️ Damien Riley

Ps I know it’s hard. I’m gonna go cry now. Why are some people like this? 😿

Deliberate Hands, Held Up High

Deliberacy while I’m alive is come on down and make the stand. My hands are held up high. ❤️

I got a thought about being deliberate. It’s ironic how I try to let go 24/365 as a tao Buddhist. Try? Opposite of let go? Amazing.

Maybe a new song concept? Wrote it down in my idea journal.

Album concept? Wish they sold vanilla cigs.

Went to Smoker’s Paradise in Hesperia. They were closed.

Deliberation is my next Album’s name?

Then “The Stand” came on my radio. NoT the new Alarm, the one from 1979-1990 (Last Album “RAW”)

Oh baby just like that.

Deliberately is a good contender.

Deliberate Hands, Held Up High. ?

It’s Not Dark Yet but,

It’s gettin’ there.

Damien’s advice always: Don’t try. Stay open. Rest and feel good. Oh, the angelic things that will be revealed to you.

“Every decision I make is a choice between a grievance and a miracle.” from a Course in Miracles

Don’t limit the abundance already present around you with low vibrations like panic and sorrow. Everything you need is within you. Be aware of your own blindfold hold. Let go.

Stay open, focus will come. Be ready, it’s more than you think 😉 and more powerful to heal.

Beard’s comin’ in nice 😁

If nothing else makes sense, follow your desire with ever increasing thankfulness today. You are a one and only. No one has your fingerprints.

Love and light,

What the Peeper Saw 1962 7/10

Not a bed protest but on location in mine anyway. Good film, it brought up the topic of age gaps in marriage. This is part of a new series I’m doing called “The Night Owl With Damien.” To help you sleep.
