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.

Gathering Light VII

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish celebration that marks the birth of the world, and a New Year, begins this evening at sunset.

L'Shanah Tova Tikatevu
May you be inscribed in the book of life for a good year.
May all beings be blessed with 
chesed, rachamim, simcha v'shalom,
lovingkindness, compassion, joy and peace.
May this be a year of healing for all who are suffering.
May the hearts of all beings be filled with
sweetness and light.
I'll be out of town and away from blogging for a few days.
Gentle steps,
