There are burning bushes all around you.
Every tree is full of
angels. Hidden beauty is waiting in every crumb.
Life wants to lead you
from crumbs to angels,

Good day!!! Above are pictures from Old Man's Cave in Hocking Hills State Park. We went camping down there this past weekend and it is beautiful and refreshing down there. Have a great day!!!
There’s a wooden plaque on my office door that reads: “Whatever we love becomes part of us.” What we love, and therefore honor, helps make us who we are now. We can’t ever let go of that, any more than a tree could let go of the sun, rain, earth, or wind
that nourished and grew it.

The True Teacher Cannot Be Lost
By Theresa Cordova
It is the inevitable reminder that
no matter what the appearance of
loss, there is an Indweller lying in repose,
waiting for us to connect and
beckoning us to come closer and closer.
The invitation is for opening our
hearts and sometimes
even allowing our hearts to break
in order to allow the
Light to come through,
cleansing our eyes
with tears of sadness and joy.
Then once again
we can see clearly and experience
the truth that we are wondrously made.
We again remember to stop
and set a trap
for the perspective of the Indweller.
Within this perspective, we connect
with the dragon of our feelings
as it transforms from
a monster to a mystical, magical being.
It is this being that
guides us throughout the universe within,
where we go so that we never
have to go without.

Quotes by Margot Silk Forrest
If you wait to be invited, you might never get to go anywhere interesting.
What if we decided to love each other with the same speed at which we decide to hate each other?
There’s a spiral in the healing process. Some of the things you deal with early on and you think you have laid them to rest, but as you grow and your life changes, they come around again and you get to heal them on a much higher level. This used to really frustrate me, but now I see it is part of the process.
Are we ever done with healing? I reframe this question to, are we ever done with growing? For me, the answer is I hope not. I hope I grow until the day I die.
We can’t force a flower to open or a carrot to grow. Nor can we force our own process nor make it go faster.
The real crime of the heart is never to reveal it.
“I honor your Gods.
I drink from your well.
I bring an unprotected heart to our meeting place.
I hold no cherished outcome.
I will not negotiate by withholding.
I am not subject to disappointment.”
—Druid vow of friendship
This is my guide to all of my relations.
Respect. Connect. Release attachment to results.
Please remind me of this when I forget cuz I often need reminders!!!
have a great day!!!
Don’t go outside your house to see flowers.
My friend, don’t bother with that excursion.
Inside your body there are flowers. One flower has a thousand petals.
That will do for a place to sit.
Sitting there you will have a glimpse of beauty inside the body and out of it,
before gardens and after gardens.
The Kabir Book
Robert Bly version
For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life, but there was always some in the way, something to be gotten though first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness. Happy is the way, so treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one.
