Shine the Divine:

Creativity IS a Spiritual Practice

When we see through our hearts, we recognize that every single one of us is infused with creativity. Divine Sparks are embedded in everyone and everything. It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new. Join me as we wake up to the sacred-ordinary blessings waiting to greet us each and every day.

Ever Changing

so easy to lose
myself in intricate thoughts
caught inside my mind

then I remember
beyond my own container
ever changing skies

the same and different
stormy puzzled blue gray clear
in out mind sky breathe

  14. wonderful shots of our ever changing skies. In my new home I get to watch the clouds move in and out and the weather change many times a day. It does remind us of the moving flow of life and how nothing stays the same for long.

  17. Stunning images. I share your fascination with the sky. Here the "white nights" have begun, making our evenings long and sunsets soon occurring on the other side of midnight.

  32. I love these photos, and I love the metaphor of the mind. Last night I was driving and the sky just STOPPED me. It was unlike any sky I've ever seen before, and I thought, "Just like what life feels like these days... Unlike anything I've ever known."

    Beautiful images --- thank you for sharing them. My eyes are happy!

  34. you capture the Best cloud photos, so dreamy, so beautiful, I love seeing them. When I read your words I was reminded of something on the side of my favorite herbal tea; Tulsi Tea Sweet Rose: ' real silence is when you have a silent mind, even when you are speaking. Papaji
    for some reason I was guided to share this with you. It has come back to me a number of times this night. xo

  37. Ooh, I LOVE these! I especially love the first one. The colors of the others are great, but the patterns of the first one are so cool. It reminds me of those optical illusion pictures, like the one with the young lady who becomes an old lady if you look at it slightly differently.

    Wonderful images!
