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”

See in God’s Light

 

See in God's Light

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls; for my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”—Matthew 11:28-30….In the book “The Creative Life” by Eric Butterworth, Eric says:

God-Colored Glasses

 

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God” are familiar words of Jesus’ Beatitudes.  In an illumined state you see God.  This does not mean you see “the man in the skies.”  But you see from the consciousness of God.  You see with “God-colored glasses.”  Your seeing projects the light of Spirit.  At the start of every day the wise student will take a few moments to become established in the light, hold this realization: “And God said, ‘Let there be Light.’”—Eric Butterworth, “The Creative Life”

The smoke tree leaves look like ornaments colored by the spiderweb glistening in the sun….

Hidden Gifts

 

“…Mediocrity is self-inflicted and genius is self-bestowed. The genius does not differ from others in their access to the light within, only in their confident acceptance of its natural outstreaming. There is a hidden genius in each person, which each of us gives expression to through commitment, discipline, and the enthusiasm that works with passion. Einstein once said that genius is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.”

Like the Swarming of Ideas, the 5th Day of Creation

 

“Let the waters swarm with living creatures.”

-Bible, Genesis, the fifth day of creation

 

“The fifth day of the creation represents the process evolving. “Waters” refers to the unexpressed capacities of the mind–your potentialities. The living creatures are the dynamic thoughts in the mind. “Swarming” indicates the suppportive activity of Mind, the creative proliferation of multitudes of thoughts and ideas…Waters can also be a metaphor for energy…Everything is energy moving at different frequencies, and that energy always gets synchronized with a frequency of like kind…This is the swarming process.

-Eric Butterworth, “The Creative Life”

 
creative impulse
sometimes an idea
a seed
acts like a magnet
holding a thought may attract other like ideas
people unknowingly may gift you what you need
sparks upon sparks
synergy

God-colored Glasses

 

This is a smoke tree. The leaves are decorated with rainbows from the radiant spider webs. I had meant to focus on the spider web, but this is what happened, blurry spiderweb. It was totally accidental. I didn’t even notice the rainbows when I took the photo. There may have been a bit of dew on them. I was seeing something different. When I got home to look at the photo on the camera, I was delighted by the magic in it even if what I was focusing on was blurry.
