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.

Resting In What Is 

A little SoulCollage® practice from this image that really speaks to my heart:

Who are you?
I am the one who rests in what is, tangled, messy, brittle, fragile. I am the one who trusts that change is unfolding even as I rest, that  these thin weedy branches are enough to support me, they are stronger than they appear and so am I. I am the one aware of light gathering around the edges of life, tender, tenuous, ending and beginning again and again.


  1. Beautiful image, Laura, and perfectly titled.

  2. Stunning in its simplicity, Laura. It is so healing to rest in what is, yes? I hope you and your family have a lovely weekend of family time and care.

  13. Beautiful words and photograph.

  14. Hi Laura,
    This post reminded me of these verses:
    Philippians 4:11 Not that I am saying this to call attention to any need of mine; since, as far as I am concerned, I have learned to be content regardless of circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in want, and I know what it is to have more than enough — in everything and in every way I have learned the secret of being full and being hungry, of having abundance and being in need. 13 I can do all things through him who gives me power. (Complete Jewish Bible)

    Your image is beautiful, and a wonderful illustration of rest.

  15. Excellent photo Laura. I like the B&W more than the color.

  16. Laura, Oh, how much I miss your creativity in healing one's heart, spirit and mind. This is no different. It brings me to the year long journey with Jan where we are learning "I am enough." This speaks volumes to me. At any moment, with any circumstance, if we stop and awaken to what our wise heart and wise mind is telling us...we will know "all is enough." Thank you for this blessing. xo my dear friend!
