The Whole World Just Wants To Speak To You

The warm Solstice air,
taking shape in every wisp of cloud.

The entire spectrum of evening colors,
reaching towards you.

Stop and Listen.
Listen and Rejoice.
The whole world just wants to speak to you.

Solstice 2016

The Shape Of Things

May Shapes

Remembering who you are
Where you come from
And the shape of ‪all the things.

I Am. Noccan Kani. Ham Sa. So Ham. Sat Nam.

“Nature is written in that great book which ever is before our eyes — I mean the universe — but we cannot understand it if we do not first learn the language and grasp the symbols in which it is written. The book is written in mathematical language, and the symbols are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without whose help it is impossible to comprehend a single word of it; without which one wanders in vain through a dark labyrinth.”  ~ Galileo Galilei

Spring Equinox Blessings

Offering up this despacho to this life affirming time: from the thawing ground, tree buds, and to all the bird songs welcoming this ‪Spring‬ season. Moving from darkness to Light and celebrating all the nuances in-between.

In nature’s beauty I walk and find my way. ‪

“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.” ~ John Muir

Saving Graces

Every tiny bud, a sign that life is returning.

As the Sun always rises after the dark night, as the Moon always becomes full again after emptying herself to darkness, Spring always returns to chase away Winter’s slumber. Light always returning after the passing of the dark.

It never ceases to amaze me, all the cycles in nature, reflected within ourselves. Everything, waning and waxing. Always in cycles.

The Season Of Renewal

Listen.
Listen to what is true.
Listen to the beat of your own Sacred Heart.
Remember it. Take refuge there.

Renewal comes in cycles.

As Spring approaches we are given the opportunity to come out from under Winter’s cloak, shake off the quiet slumber and choose again. Choose again the direction that our beating Sacred Heart whispers to us to follow. Listen.

An Altar To The Soft

When the world seems hard and sharp, when we are moving through the thickness. Be gentle with yourself. Treading softly and lightly, flowing around rather than up against.

“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.” ~ Iain Thomas
