Being

This beautiful photograph was taken by a friend on Flickr. Natasha 86's
A wonderful photographer.









There is a kind of stillness that surrounds our silence
A mute secrecy
Soundless, boundless tranquility
Expanding blushings of ecstasy
That reach so far within the abyss of our heart
It is in this moment,
The Divine touches the soul and fills it with grace
Like the bursting of the sun at dawn
As it opens and greets the world.
It is in this stillness and silence
Being is born


Quotes on Being:

Edith Wharton
There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.

Doris Mortman
Until you make peace with who you are, you'll never be content with what you have.

Coco Chanel
How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.

William James
Each of us literally chooses, by his way of attending to things, what sort of universe he shall appear to himself to inhabit.


Addison Walker
It's not true that nice guys finish last.
Nice guys are winners before the game even starts.

In response to your question...
Am hoping so much we don't get the blizzard.
I just cannot imagine such....as it is the most beautiful day here.
The sun has been shining all morning, and it's very warm.

As it opens and greets the world.
It is in this stillness and silence

To all that have visited from afar, we are all a journey and we do relate to each others words ... because so deep within us there is no separation we are all part of that whole.

Thank you all so much for coming it has been lovely to see you all.
hugs for everyone.
