If you want to find beauty and peace, close your eyes and spin around. Open your eyes and you will find it everywhere. Once you find it all around you, then look inside and you will find the beauty of your soul, composed of pure white light. If you don’t really want to find beauty, then you will find what is dark and ugly. I, for me and my life choose the beauty. And I rejoice in the choice every day. Even on the bad ones because beauty is just around the corner.

Baroque-Inspired Photography by Mariska Karto

These are done very beautifully. I want to share them with the world.

I Want Ice Water!

Hailing from the Netherlands, this artist is bringing a resurgence of Baroque-style painting to her work. Instead of paint though, the artist uses her camera to create sensual and feminine images that echo the renaissance period. Her name is Mariska Karto and through her art she expresses the depths of her own mind and being. As an artist she brings all the elements of natural story telling into her photography and in the process creates a work that even the old masters could have admired.

Differences on opinions are wonderful, colorfulvarieties of expression, not reason to take sides or go to war. As we dissolve prejudice within ourselves, the entire planet is blessed. Today my heart opens a little more as I go about the work of creating a world where it is safe for us to love each other.

I have inherited a great treasure—the love in my own heart. The more I share this treasure with others, the richer I become. Once a day, I stretch my arms out wide to the side and say, ” I am open and receptive to all the good and abundance in the Universe.”

Weathering the Moment

And let the Divine give you compassion and caring.

“Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.”
~ Langston Hughes

Do you ever get stuck in your head?

I found myself there last night. The sort of stuckness where you’re oh-so-tired, and know you should be getting to sleep, but instead you keep worrying something around in your brain.

It’s not any good, you know. That useless kind of fretful worrying. Nothing constructive about it. It won’t solve anything, fix anything, heal anything. All it shall do is make you more tired, frazzled, down or stuck.

I have a meditation technique I use when I find myself in this kind of headspace. I like to think of it as ‘weathering the moment’. Invariably when I use this method I emerge out of the other end feeling calmer, quieter and with some breathing space up…
