May we all be moved by beauty today. May we all feel the passion and be moved to take flight into our dreams.And, Diane at Contemplative Photography quotes Rumi:
A human being is essentially a spirit-eye.
Whatever you really see,On this gray morning after a glorious weekend, I'm sitting in a coffee shop in Portland getting ready to go spend some time with my new adopted mom. A chasm formed last August when my second mom died. I became motherless and thought that at this stage of life, that was to be expected. It was part of my lot. But, on Friday I met Marzenda, a water sprite who lives in Portland's house boat community ... the image here is of her front porch. Almost instantly I changed my mind about accepting my motherless condition and asked her if I could adopt her. She graciously accepted and my heart feels fuller already.
you are that.
--Rumi, A Year with Rumi (May 10)
So the question for today is: what else is out there waiting for us if only we look with spirit-eyes and take flight into our dreams? The world is so full of wise and generous souls. I feel surrounded, loved, safe in an abundant Universe that may send me challenges but always, if I choose to accept the lesson, as doorways to greater love.
How wonderful: I love the hope and joy that sing through this post. Which Portland is this?ReplyDelete
Oh Diane, your words always touch my soul and resonate with my spirit -- my inner sprite awakens and I take flight with you.ReplyDelete
So glad to hear you've got a new adopted mother! And so glad you are safe in God's embrace.
LOL -- and I don't have my glasses on, have not had coffee yet -- and meant to write -- Joyce but saw Diane's name in the window above and my fingers did their thing and....ReplyDelete
Joyce, I've been away (my son graduated from NYU) and just returned. Catching up, I found this lovely post. How wonderful for you. As Diane says, hope and joy grace this post.ReplyDelete
