SECRET OF LIFE ..

YOU GET WHAT YOU CONCENTRAT UPON ..

THERE IS NO OTHER MAIN RULE ..

therefore, as always, make of this voice what you choose to make of it…

make of me what you choose to make of me, but recognize within yourselves the vitality of your being….

and look to no man or no idea or no woman or no dogma..

but the vitality of your own being, and trust it.

And that which offends your soul, turn away from, but trust yourself

(Seth)

 

SMILE AND…BREATH

I suspect I am using my photography/artwork, writing, and music in the service of, once again, seeking my purpose in life. These are – without a doubt – far better strategies to employ than drugs, alcohol, reckless titillation, or random and casual sex, mistaking all to be connection, comfort and intimacy (nothing wrong with any of it - just been there; done that, except for the alcohol part).

 

Almost anything can, does, and will - should we so desire - fill a void inside of us. But voids within are delicate wounds and should not be filled so haphazardly. Today's internal void - poorly treated - can become tomorrow's "through-and-through," an unfillable bullet-hole where a heart or emotion once lived.

 

Now, it appears I have decided, consciously or not, to seek to work out my life in front of you. It feels…comfortable; normal, even.. Your participation comes in choosing to either read, or not read, what I write. Some of you offer words of encouragement or echo similar thoughts about your lives; past or present. For that sharing, I most humbly thank you.

 

At this time, my life is in flux: it has been for about 2 years. I know I’ve felt such a tender and aching loneliness and disconnection from this life at other times in my past (certainly during those teenaged, angst years), but I don’t remember having felt like this anytime over the last 20 years or so.

 

Mentally, emotionally and spiritually I’ve only recognized this recently, although I’ve felt a serious and mysterious disturbance in the Force (my Force) for some time. Only my art, writing, and music have provided internal solace.

 

Even fishing is not quite the soothing opiate I mainlined for so many years as a buffer against external (and internal) stress.

 

But, recognition is the first step - and I do recognize. I am moving forward. The journey of thousand miles - towards light, enlightenment, honesty, openness, love, intimacy and joy - has begun with some small, but straight-forward and strong steps onto a new path.

 

Hey, I don’t do nuthin’ half-way or half-ass. For better or worse, it’s “all or nothing at all.”

 

I am sure this path will have its share of twists and turns, rises and dips, zigs and zags, bumps and bruises; as well as spots of smooth and easy sailing when the ride will be effortless and the view, breath-taking. Should it be any other way? Nah.

 

I am not clear how my imagery figures into this: the subjects I choose, how I choose to process them, the way in which I present them to you. But, I know it does (and some are a joy to photograph and eat).

 

Such as the image above. Besides tasting heavenly this time of year, the rich color and vibrancy, shape, form, texture, implies (to me) sexuality (life force), sensuality and fecundity. Cherries, and other such sweet, ripe, colorful fruit seem of particular value to my artist’s eye and being.

"Life is good, because within its realm, anything is possible.

Life is good, because no matter how far we fall,

there is always a way to climb back up again...

 

and we will know joy when we give it a place to resonate within our heart....

Therefore, whatever it is we desire, give it a place within us to be."

 

Enjoy this sunset taken in Papuma Cape Jember, Indonesia :)

and many thanks for all your visit.

Have a beautiful life everyone!

Life delights life....

Poet William Blake once wrote

For everything that lives is holy, life delights in life.

 

Can you guess who this is and what she delights in life and who she see's?

  

The Rolling Stones has been one of my favorite rock groups and a photo on flickr was captioned As Tears Go By. All around the world, once again...there are joy and there are tears. I just decided to put this song up those who care to listen....As Tears Go By....Rolling Stones.

I seen this beautiful butterfly crawling in my yard and picked him up before my dogs crushed him. He is on his final leg in life so was unable to fly. I put him on the pumpkin to take a couple of shots then placed him on the tree so he could live out his life without being crushed. hopefully he is able to find his peaceful place without pain.

This is like deja vu all over again.

- Yogi Berra

I've snapped this tree on a couple of occasions recently. Yesterday, as I passed by, the setting sun was highlighting the tree against contrastingly dark clouds. I also like the contrast of the lush, living ivy growing on the trunk of its dead host.

 

I remember my grandfather once telling me that ivy eventually kills the tree it climbs. Looking at this dead specimen, I can see why he would have thought so. However, as it turns out, this is not the case.

 

According to the Woodland Trust, ivy is not a parasitic plant and has a separate root system in the soil and so absorbs its own nutrients and water. In fact, its presence has huge wildlife benefits.

 

At least 50 species are associated with it. Both the pollen and berries can be an essential source of food for many insects and birds and ivy provides shelter for invertebrates, birds, small mammals and bats.

 

Ivy uses trees and walls for support, allowing it to reach upwards to better levels of sunlight. So, the dead tree in this picture is actually providing a much needed foundation from which new life continues to spring.

 

That's a great illustration of what God has done for us through the sacrificial death of His Son, the Lord Jesus:

 

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)

"Teach your children what we have taught our children - that the Earth is our Mother. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons and daughters of the Earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves. This we know. The Earth does not belong to us, we belong to the Earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood that unites one family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons and daughters of the Earth. We did not weave the web of life; We are merely a strand in it. Whatever we do to the Web, We do to ourselves."

The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit. Proverbs 15

La lengua que brinda consuelo es árbol de vida; la lengua insidiosa deprime el espíritu.

מַרְפֵּ֣א לָ֭שֹׁון עֵ֣ץ חַיִּ֑ים וְסֶ֥לֶף בָּ֝֗הּ שֶׁ֣בֶר בְּרֽוּחַ׃

Life without friends is like tree without leaves. You look cool in one season but boring the rest of the time.

Life is like a ferris wheel. Sometimes you're up, sometimes you're down. In the end, you just have to learn how to enjoy the ride. ;) ♥

This picture was originally pretty dark and hence I had to push the shadows quite a bit. Even though it's not the most prettiest image, I really like it in combination with the quote above. I hope you like it too!

Lion King/Circle of Life

 

From the day we arrive on the planet

And blinking, step into the sun

There's more to see than can ever be seen

More to do than can ever be done

There's far too much to take in here

More to find than can ever be found

But the sun rolling high

Through the sapphire sky

Keeps great and small on the endless round

 

It's the Circle of Life

And it moves us all

Through despair and hope

Through faith and love

Till we find our place

On the path unwinding

In the Circle

The Circle of Life

  

A very nice week, my friends.

 

LIFE IS....

by Mother Theresa

 

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.

Life is beauty, admire it.

Life is a dream, realize it.

Life is a challenge, meet it.

Life is a duty, complete it.

Life is a game, play it.

Life is a promise, fulfill it.

Life is sorrow, overcome it.

Life is a song, sing it.

Life is a struggle, accept it.

Life is a tragedy, confront it.

Life is an adventure, dare it.

Life is luck, make it.

Life is too precious, do not destroy it.

Life is life, fight for it.

All the best to everyone.

"As autumn returns to earth's northern hemisphere,

and day and night are briefly,

but perfectly,

balanced at the equinox,

may we remember anew how fragile life is ----

human life, surely,

but also the lives of all other creatures,

trees and plants,

waters and winds.

 

May we make wise choices in how and what we harvest,

may earth's weather turn kinder,

may there be enough food for all creatures,

may the diminishing light in our daytime skies

be met by an increasing compassion and tolerance

in our hearts."

- Kathleen Jenks, Autumn Lore
