"I wanted everything; beauty, art, flesh, emotional intensity, love, sensuality, and spirituality." Daniel Odier Arrival of the Birds


"Have you ever made love, outside, on a blanket on the beach, or on a field of soft grass, under the glow and soft light of a full moon? Why not?" - BossBob


How can you not become aware and present when each day holds such possibilities and wonders anew?


It has become important for me to seek out wonderful quotes from other countries than just the U.S. or England - than from just a western philosophy or point of view. Or from just a modern, post 1900s point of view. Although it is a bit tough, even on the internet, the rest of the world, and non-modern times hold a great deal of incredible feelings and observations and knowledge as well from which, we today, can still benefit.


“The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished.”

― Deng Ming-Dao, Everyday Tao: Living with Balance and Harmony


“There was just one moon. That familiar, yellow, solitary moon. The same moon that silently floated over fields of pampas grass, the moon that rose--a gleaming, round saucer--over the calm surface of lakes, that tranquilly beamed down on the rooftops of fast-asleep houses. The same moon that brought the high tide to shore, that softly shone on the fur of animals and enveloped and protected travelers at night. The moon that, as a crescent, shaved slivers from the soul--or, as a new moon, silently bathed the earth in its own loneliness. THAT moon.” ~ Haruki Murakami, 1Q84

The circle symbol meaning is universal, sacred and divine. It represents the infinite nature of energy, and the inclusivity of the universe.

What is the most romantic place for dating? I think the beach is in your list for the romantic place. What should we do with our partner in the beach? Many people said that enjoy the beautiful of sunset is the best moment for couples. We can enjoy the sunset and We can get a lot of idea from sunset. Like dating, holiday, recreation or just relax. To remind us again how the beauty of nature also give us inspiration and new spirit in life. Grateful by enjoy the beauty of sunset is reflection of our spirituality side. I hope we can enjoy my sunset Shot.

God. Nice to see you again. God bless you!

I would like to say 1 000 000 thanks all my Flickr friends for your visits and comments !

Thank you Paintedworks for use of the texture, it was fun to work with!~

someone with whom one has a feeling of deep and natural affinity , love, intimacy, sexuality, spirituality, and/or compatibility. Does it really exist?


Sexuality and Spirituality go hand in hand for me. When you suffocate one, the other suffers! Then you are not experiencing your complete authentic self. LADIES, do yourself a favour, when you are looking for a guy, don't look for sexy, look for Sexspi! Trying to be inspiring am I doing so far? :)

"Spirituality is like a thin-thin thread, that if delicately followed guides us from darkness to light; from poverty to abundance and from destruction to safety."

We can consciously become sensitive to our own energy fields, and we can manipulate this energy to increase our sense of pleasure and enhance our spirituality. When we admire something, our energy expands to encompass the object of our desire. We are more open and receptive. The essential principle is -if we are open, and ask, we shall receive.

It is an interesting experiment to try this for yourself -fill a room with your energy, imagine it in whichever way suits you. Make the energy thick like a fog, the diffuse like soft mist. Expand outwards; cover your house, town, country to the universe itself! Then constrict it into a tiny point of awareness inside your body.

Your ability to perceive your energy field will develop as you practice noticing how you react on an energetic level. By consciously expanding energy fields (and you can use whatever inspires you to facilitate this) you can tune into t he pleasure and sense of well-being it evokes. During conflict, a challenging time to practice this, expanding your energy field will certainly have a calming, healing effect.

Allow spirit to touch your soul! This creates a certain energy (like brain waves or magnetic force) which attracts guidance in the form of synchronicity and dreams.

Along with love and joy, peace is one of the fruits of the spirit. But it is also one of the roots. In other words, peace is a necessary condition of spirituality, no less than an inevitable result of it. In the words of St. Paul, it is peace which keeps the heart and mind in the knowledge and love of God.


Between peace the root and peace the fruit of the spirit there is, however, a profound difference in quality. Peace the root is something we all know and understand, something which, if we choose to make the necessary effort, we can achieve. If we do not achieve it, we shall never make any serious advance in our knowledge and love of God, we shall never catch more than a fleeting glimpse of that other peace which is the fruit of spirituality. Peace the fruit is the peace which passes all understanding; and it passes understanding, because it is the peace of God. Only those who have in some measure become God-like can hope to know this peace in its enduring fullness. Inevitably so. For, in the world of spiritual realities, knowledge is always a function of being; the nature of what we experience is determined by what we ourselves are.


In the early stages of the spiritual life we are concerned almost exclusively with peace the root, and with the moral virtues from which it springs, the vices and weaknesses which check its growth. Interior peace has many enemies. On the moral plane we find, on the one hand, anger, impatience, and every kind of violence; and, on the other (for peace is essentially active and creative), every kind of inertia and slothfulness. On the plane of feeling, the great enemies of peace are grief, anxiety, fear, all the formidable host of the negative emotions. And on the plane of the intellect we encounter foolish distractions and the wantonness of idle curiosity. The overcoming of these enemies is a most laborious and often painful process, requiring incessant mortification of natural tendencies and all-too-human habits. That is why there is, in this world of ours, so little interior peace among individuals and so little exterior peace between societies. In the words of the Imitation: “All men desire peace but few indeed desire those things which make for peace.”


Aldous Huxley, Huxley And God

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”

Vanity, showing off, is an attitude that reduces spirituality to a worldly thing, which is the worst sin that could be committed in the church. - Pope Francis -. Find us at SIAJNAD.COM

" 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." ~Hesse

Hello again, everyone. We're back from our Barcelona adventure, tired but tremendously content. Our visit was filled with some amazing spiritual experiences, coming from both natural and human resources. We sure had our share of awe inspiring moments, and we'd love to share those with you in the upcoming days.


Of course, between us all, we took thousands of photos which need to be looked at, accepted and processed. It'll take us some time, as usual, but we'll get there *s*.


Today's photo is from this amazingly mystical place called Montserrat mountain and monastery. When we arrived there, 800 m above sea level, the mountain was engulfed with low clouds, and this made it all look surrealistic and mystical to the core. Other people in the group were sorry they couldn't take nice photos since there was no sun and too much mist. Joe, Moshe and myself were delightful and smiling. The mood around us was so special, it made us so happy *s*.

“Who is more humble? The scientist who looks at the universe with an open mind and accepts whatever the universe has to teach us, or somebody who says everything in this book must be considered the literal truth and never mind the fallibility of all the human beings involved?” ― Carl Sagan



We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.

- Carl Sagan



Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep thoughts can be winnowed from deep nonsense.

- Carl Sagan



Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge. - Carl Sagan


It doesn't matter which church you visit.

You don't have to be religious.

Enjoy the peace and tranquility of life.

Nobody can prevent you from finding it.

Unless you empower them.

If something is stopping you from

reaching it, act on it.

If it's outside your powers,

stop worrying about it.

Search inside yourself.

Shut out the world for a while.

Take the time to explore your spirituality.

Think of your loved ones, your life.



You'll be surprised...

Dear Rain, please wash away my worries ~


On my way home, I saw this man set down his briefcase and then his coat. He tore off his shirt and rolled up his pants. He stood there, hoping that the rain would be the answer to his stress.
