Carpe Diem #1282 Sacred Stones

Copy from Chevrefeuilles Blogspot

“sacred stones” (or Ovoo). An ovoo (heap) is a sacred cairn found in Mongolian shamanic religious traditions, usually made from rocks with wood or from wood.

Ovoos are often found at the top of mountains and in high places, like mountain passes. They serve mainly as Tengriism religious sites, used in the worship of the mountains and the sky as well as in Buddhist or Shamanist ceremonies, but often are also landmarks.

In our lives we have all places we have sweet memories at, we have points in our life that are our milestones, our sacred stones, our Ovoo. Isn’t that a nice idea that the Ovoo stands also for the milestones in our life?

My thought’s about life

Sacred Stones to me are the stepping stones in life, each point is a milestone as the years go by, in old age if you can sit back in your armchair and feel contented with what you have achieved over the years, then you can live those golden years in peace.

  1. Elsie, how true about procrastination. I like your poem and it is true. Someone will argue; what is success.😊 .
    The Squirrel is so cute, they certainly never procrastinate. /)

    • Very true, someone will argue about “What is Success”?
      Success is different in everyone’s eyes, some as very happy and have very little, but consider that they have had a great life, other have everything and think they have been very successful, but are never happy, so everyone is different.
      So really it is living a life you can feel proud of in retrospect.
      Happy days and thanks for commenting
