The Beauty of Life

Once you have started seeing the beauty of life,
ugliness starts disappearing.
If you start looking at life with joy,
sadness starts disappearing.
You cannot have heaven and hell together,
you can have only one.
It is your choice.

A glimpse of my new direction :-)

Here’s a brief little teaser of some of which I’ve become involved in recently…….

 

I’ve belived for a long time that the Arts, and being Creative, is a way forward through the morass that humanity appears to have fallen into, to a place where individuality within community is to be celebrated and encouraged.

A chance meeting with a likeminded person almost a year ago is now giving form to that concept, although it’s still very early days and much is continuing to evolve.

So there’s a little Light on the subject for you 🙂

Learning from Nature

A potted apple tree in my courtyard has attracted a multitude of tiny caterpillars, and they in turn, have attracted me.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThere is no other door to knowledge than the door nature opens; there is no truth except the truths we discover in nature. 

Luther Burbank
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA solitary American monk named Thomas Berry writes that in our relationship to nature, we have been autistic for centuries.  Wrapped tightly in our own version of knowledge, we have been unreceptive to the wisdom of the natural world.  To tune in again, to have the “spontaneous environmental rapport” that characterized our ancestors, will take doing something that is perfectly delightful: reimmersing ourselves in the natural world.

Sit down before fact like a little child, and be prepared to give up every preconceived notion, follow humbly wherever and to whatever abyss Nature leads, or you shall learn nothing.
