“Just living is not enough,”
said the butterfly.
“One must have sunshine,
freedom and a little flower.”
Hans Christian Andersen
” … no girl had ever moved me with a story
of spiritual suffering and so beautifully her
soul showing out radiant as an angel
wandering in hell and the hell the
selfsame streets I’d roamed in watching,
watching for someone just like her
and never dreaming
the darkness and the mystery
and eventuality of our meeting in eternity.”
“I embrace emerging experience.
I participate in discovery.
I am a butterfly.
I am not a butterfly collector.
I want the experience of the butterfly.”
WOW… so those dials in Lightroom are powerful creatures. After yesterday’s dive off the cliff of creativity this beauty came to life! Or was I pushed? See what you did Ron Clifford ;o). Something tells me 2013 is going to be a BEAUTIFUL year!
“The goal of spiritual practice is full recovery,
and the only thing you need to recover
from is a fractured sense of self.”
“Give up defining yourself –
to yourself or to others.
You won’t die.
You will come to life.
And don’t be concerned
with how others define you.
When they define you,
they are limiting themselves,
so it’s their problem.
Whenever you interact with people,
don’t be there primarily as a function or a role,
but as the field of conscious Presence.
You can only lose something that you have,
but you cannot lose something that you are.”
