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.

Only Light Can Do That




Darkness cannot drive out darkness:
 
only light can do that. 

~Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


May each of us illuminate the world with love, compassion and respect for one another, beginning by shining light into the dark places within our own hearts a little bit more every day.

  17. Laura,

    When I saw your comment (elsewhere) about this quote, I smiled. Of all the many incredible quotes from Dr. King (and there are so many!), this one caught my eye today. So, it made me smile to learn that you had chosen the very same quote here.

    Thank you for having a blog that is consistently inspirational, positive, uplifting, and loving. You give joy to many people with your loving, caring energy.
