Reflect Essence of Beauty

 

“Let our souls turn into a mirror longing to reflect the essence of beauty”- Rumi

 

“Having a selfless attitude will uplift us. By helping others we are, in fact, helping ourselves. On the other hand, every time we do a selfish action, we are harming ourselves. Learn to bless everyone. Don’t ever curse anyone, because a human being is not just a bundle of flesh and blood. There is consciousness at work within everyone. That consciousness is not a separate, isolated entity; it is part of the whole, a Supreme Unity. Whatever we do is reflected in the Whole, in the one Universal Mind – and it returns to you with the same intensity. Whenever you do a good or bad action, it is reflected in the Universal Consciousness. Therefore, learn to be selfless and learn how to send blessings to everyone. Pray for everyone, because we need the support and blessings of all of Creation for our upliftment. When we pray for others the entire universe prays for us; and when we bless others the whole universe blesses us, because man is one with the cosmic energy.”—Amma, Awaken Children, Vol. VIII

Walking for Our Ancestors and Future Generations

 

Walking For Our Ancestors and Future Generations

“All our ancestors and all future generations are present in us all the time. Happiness is not an individual matter. As long as the ancestors in us are still suffering, we can’t be happy and we will transmit that suffering to our children and their children. When we walk, we can walk for our ancestors and future generations. Maybe they had to walk with sorrow; perhaps they were forced to march or migrate. When we walk freely, we are walking for them. If we can take one step freely and happily, touching the Earth mindfully, then we can take one hundred steps like that. We do it for ourselves and for all previous and future generations. We all arrive at the same time and find peace and happiness together.”—Thich Nhat Hanh

Reverie

 

High up in the mountains
The sound of the river calming me
A place for me to relax and breathe

I can almost hear the river right now
And feel the cool gentle breeze
And the soft melody of the wind playing upon the grasses

One thing I like about photography and going out into Nature
Is my mind stops chattering so much
It gives my mind a vacation

Mind’s Eye

 

Mind's Eye

“When someone deeply listens to you
the room where you stay
starts a new life
and the place where you wrote
your first poem
begins to glow in your mind’s eye.
It is as if gold has been discovered!”

—John Fox

 

“Getting centered in the light within, and then seeing from the consciousness of light, is actually a “light treatment”. When you see from the consciousness of light, you project a flow of light energy that becomes a healing influence. The Hebrew word for “eye” is ayin, which means “fountain.” There is a natural flowing forth of transcendent light from the eye. In other words, you will no longer see light—you see with light. The statement that the eyes are the windows of the soul is apropos here.”—Eric Butterworth, “The Creative Life”

Four Elements

 

Breathing in, I see the sky in this flower
Breathing out, I feel spaciousness within me. I am thankful for this breath.
Breathing in, I see the sun’s rays reflected in this flower
Breathing out, I know the sun is in my heart, pumping blood, guiding my way.
Breathing in, I see a cloud in this flower
Breathing out, I know water is coursing through my veins.
Breathing in, I know that the flower’s roots transport minerals to the iris, helping it to stand up tall
Breathing out, I feel my feet connected to Mother Earth who nourishes me.
