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.

Counting the Omer

Day 20

Yesod Sheb’Tiferet unification within beauty, the divine spark “yod” is hidden “sodwithin everyone, everything and I’d add experiences as well. In a fleeting moment we become absorbed, no I, no you, no it, expansive and completely present in perfect harmony, one with the Oneness of Being. As I sat in meditation this afternoon with a dear friend, a chant arose from the quietude, Ayn od milvado, havayah Eloheinu, there is nothing but God/Beingness, all of existence is God/Beingness. I felt my body swaying heard the wind, opened my eyes and saw the trees moving, the same direction and rhythmic timing, one beautiful dance, Yesod Sheb’Tiferet.

toward indigo night
