The true harvest of my life is intangible,
a little star dust caught, a portion of the rainbow I have clutched. 

Henry David Thoreau

There is no matter as such.  All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this minute solar system together.  

We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intellegent mind.  This mind is the matrix of all matter.

I know that in our previous life we were trees, 
and even in this life we continue to be trees. 
Without trees, we cannot have people; 
therefore, trees and people inter-are. 
We are trees and air, bushes and clouds. 
If trees cannot survive, humankind is not going to survive either. 
We get sick because we have damaged our own environment, and we are in mental anguish because we are so far away from our true mother, 
Mother Nature.

How did the rose ever open its' heart and give
to this world all of its' beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light against its' being,
otherwise we all remain too frightened.

 The "Appennine Colossus" by Giambologna
Listen closely...
the eternal hush of silence goes on and on throughout all this, 
and has been going on, 
and will go on and on.
This is because the world is nothing but a dream
and is just thought of
and the everlasting eternity pays no attention to it.
 Jack Kerouac

One day I shall leave this world, and dream myself into reality.
Crazy Horse, 1874

Still Point Manifestation

Un Sa yah (One inhale) - Still Point (Hold) - Un Sa Yah (One exhale)

Still Point between inhale and exhale is the moment for new manifestation.
Inhale, imagine what we want to create ''with emotion'' while holding the breath, and exhale it out into our body and field ''with emotion''.
In this way of making our daily breathing into manifestation moments, we can live the constant manifestation process.
Mindfullness takes practise.  Honor the free will of all Creation.

I listen to the silence of the night. 
I release my fears in the darkness. 
I heal.
Few things speak to the soul like a dolphin staring us straight in the eye. Researchers say that once you're in the water with a dolphin, it does a sonar scan of your body. You may feel vibrations and become extremely relaxed and happy.
Scientist David Cole of AquaThought conducts studies of people before and after they interact with dolphins. Cole says the echolocation dolphins use on us can radically improve our immune systems, our brains and our cells.
The Whale Whisperer

The greatest wisdom is in simplicity. Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It's not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It's encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way.
Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq'ij of the Eagle Clan
A mind that is stretched 
by a new experience
can never go back to its old dimensions.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
When we become free from certain fixed concepts 
of the way the world is, 
we find it is far more subtle, and far more miraculous, 
than we may have thought.

My Wish for You

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.

A tree says: A
kernel is hidden in me, a spark, a thought, I am life from eternal life. The attempt and the risk that the eternal mother took with me is unique, unique the form and veins of my skin, unique the smallest play of leaves in my branches and the smallest scar on my bark. I was made to form and reveal the eternal in my smallest special detail.

A tree says: My strength is trust. I know nothing about my fathers, I know nothing about the thousand children that every year spring out of me. I live out the secret of my seed to the very end, and I care for nothing else. I trust that God is in me. I trust that my labor is holy. Out of this trust I live.

When we are stricken and cannot bear our lives any longer, then a tree has something to say to us: Be still! Be still! Look at me! Life is not easy, life is not difficult. Those are childish thoughts. Let God speak within you, and your thoughts will grow silent. You are anxious because your path leads away from mother and home. But every step and every day lead you back again to the mother. Home is neither here nor there. Home is within you, or home is nowhere at all.

A longing to wander tears my heart when I hear trees rustling in the wind at evening. If one listens to them silently for a long time, this longing reveals its kernel, its meaning. It is not so much a matter of escaping from one's suffering, though it may seem to be so. It is a longing for home, for a memory of the mother, for new metaphors for life. It leads home. Every path leads homeward, every step is birth, every step is death, every grave is mother.

So the tree rustles in the evening, when we stand uneasy before our own childish thoughts: Trees have long thoughts, long-breathing and restful, just as they have longer lives than ours. They are wiser than we are, as long as we do not listen to them. But when we have learned how to listen to trees, then the brevity and the quickness and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts achieve an incomparable joy. Whoever has learned how to listen to trees no longer wants to be a tree. He wants to be nothing except what he is. That is home. That is happiness.”

 ~ Herman Hesse
May you be at peace,
May your heart remain open.
May you awaken to the light of your own true nature.
May you be healed,
May you be a source of healing for all beings.
Tibetan Buddhist Prayer
What this old world needs 
is more bouquets handed around to folks 
when they are alive and kicking. 
Flowers don't do a dead one much good.
 Robert Gonzales
Never be afraid of the Darkness,
Sometimes, it is only by Facing your Fears,
That you find your Courage to Embrace your own Light.
I looked in temples, churches & mosques.
I found the Divine within my Heart.
There is a voice that doesn't use words
Louis Armstrong playing for his wife, 1961

Within you is the light of a thousand suns.
May the blessings of the Sacred Tree 
Be with you all in your own life shifts.

Create your sacred space
with the consciousness, intention and prayer you bring to it.
