Easter Lily by Paragon-- faith to walk thy path

In the past few months, I could feel that things happened in sequence to test me to the max. I lost this and that, mostly I lost things that i need to survive in this material world. And thank God, I did not lose my spiritual side, the one thing that makes us human, that one thing that links us to the higher realm. 

I could feel that I was in the dark. I saw the ugliness of human hearts and the irony is that how this ugliness is celebrated by society and how it works well to bend those who are sided with the light. Certainly the world is full of duality. Where there is light, there is dark. At the moment I feel that the light is yet to shine brighter to maintain a healthy balance of the world. 

I asked myself many times if I need to change myself in order to adapt and survive in this world. No, i dont need to. I just need to work around it to protect myself. Along the path, two people told me not to change. They must have seen something precious in me that made them say that. If i dont keep the light, if i switch off the light, the world will get darker and darker. If more people switch off their light because they think it helps them to survive. sure the dark will win at the end. 

The world is heading to a crazy direction. Instead of spending time to admire God's beautiful creation of the world(the nature, the art), people are plotting every second to destroy each other, that is what they call survival skill. Observe nature, we seldom see animals killing their own kind, even lions dont do that, they merely protect their own land and get rid of intruders, they fight, but they dont seek to eliminate. Only when their lives are threatened, they seek to kill. But humans are not like that, the fear and needing to control and their own imagination are doing the tricks to them. When there is no dangers, they seek to destroy first. 

I hope that the world will become a better place and that people start putting more trust and faith in it. Actually there should not be fear and needing to control. Things will fall into places if we learn to trust the human heart. 

Like the easter lilies in the paragon cup, I hope that humans can remain a pure heart and keep their own light even though at times it seems that walking a dark path helps reach their goals faster. following the dark is like forcing something to happen while following the light is like letting things to happen in their own courses. The dark sure can help you reach your goals faster but when there is time to leave this world, you would have wished you had chosen a bright path. 

I am joining Terri and Martha for tea cup Tuesday. 

Have a lovely week!


  1. Oh my dear sweet friend,well not for you to change is the best advice you got. Sadly this world on earth is all run by money, there is nothing we can do about that. We can only live our lives in peace and harmony. Helping those we can along the way. Stay strong in our faith.
    I don't watch any TV at all no cable. If anything disastrous happen there are a lot of people to tell me about it.I spent my whole life, helping others, standing up for the weak,feeding the hungry. Thats what is important. We can only worry about what we can do, not what we have no control over. You're right the world is in a very bad place.We can only pray for other to find goodness in their hearts. Just shine your light wherever you can, that my dear is all you can do. I've been around a long time 60 yrs (yikees) and thats what I have learned in my life.I hope this gives you a bit of peace.
    That teacup is just gorgeous, a very special one.
    Thanks for sharing your feelings and the beautiful cup.
    PS we are tested our whole lives, just shine on my dear..

  2. Hello Felicity....
    That is a most beautiful cup.

    Your post was very insightful. My philosophy is to KEEP EYES ON THE ROCK. The rock, of course, is God.

    In the dark times, KEEP EYES ON THE ROCK.

    In life's scary times, KEEP EYES ON THE ROCK.

    When the world around you is going mad, KEEP EYES ON THE ROCK.

    When persecuted, KEEP EYES ON THE ROCK.

    Remember, He is the same today as He was yesterday and will be the same tomorrow!

    Felicity, thanks for your visit to my blog. I think Swiss music boxes are most gorgeous but sometimes "Made in Poland" ones are lovely, too. And, of course, German. Good luck. I hope you find the perfect one! Susan

  3. Felicity: I am so sorry for what you have been going through. Remember God is faithful and He will never leave us or forsake us. Sending hugs, Martha

  4. Hello Felicity,
    There is definitely something special in you...that would be YOU! lol! You alone are enough to keep sacred and safe. I think I understand your post. You said some very insightful things and I really appreciated all you said. I agree with the ying and yang aspect of life. And for me, I believe there is always a natural balance with them. But sometimes, we seem to be seeing so much more dark. But are we just focusing on it, and therefor seeing more of it? That is what I ask myself. Or is there a real imbalance in society? If the latter, our best chance of improving the world, would be for each of us to nurture our own light : )
    You are a beautiful being!

  5. You should stay on the "light side", it's at least good for your soul survival! The teacup is lovely and must be quite old since it's Paragon.

  6. Like the painting on the saucer.

  7. You're right, Felicity, we live in an unfair world, in which material things, above all money, matter much more than the human values.
    So we have to find refuge in beauty, in things that can compensate a little bit the ugliness around and that's why I'm always thankful to enjoy delightful objects shared by sweet people like you.
    The lilies'decoration on this Paragon teacup and saucer is quite a sight! Thanks for sharing.

  8. Hello Felicity,I was just wondering how you are, hope all is well with you, miss ya,big hugs..

  9. Hello Felicity, this is my first visit to your blog. I enjoyed reading this post several times, your words are written well, stay positive and enjoy all the beautiful simple things in life. Ann
