Flowering

"The sound of salaams rising as waves diminish down in prayer, hoping for some trace of the one whose trace does not appear.If anyone asks you to say who you are, say without hesitation, Soul within soul within soul.There is a pearl diver who does not know how to swim.No matter.

Moon Breath

"Flowers every nightBlossom in the sky;Peace in the Infinite,At peace am I.Sighs a hundredfoldFrom my heart arise;My heart, dark and cold,Flames with my sighs." ~ Maulana Rumi, translated by A.J. Arberry

Journaling with Maulana Rumi

Reading the Maulana's poems grounds me, provides comfort, and also opens doors to contemplation. They are a source of awe, wisdom, and inspiration that ever inform; that centuries after he lived his words are relevant today I find breathtakingly marvelous!

When Great Trees Fall

"When great trees fall, rocks on distant hills shudder, lions hunker down in tall grasses, and even elephants lumber after safety.

Then a... Continue Reading →

May the wonders of the earth call you forth from all your small, secret prisons and set your feet free in the pastures of possibilities. May the light of dawn anoint your eyes that you may...

Buttercup Moon: Confluence

This full moon was a Buttercup Moon here in the forest; the green a vibrant backdrop beneath prolific buttercups, nodding their shining heads, waxing poetic in glowing terms, and ceaselessly smiling at everything.  I read somewhere that 'one sign of spiritual enlightenment is smiling at everything for no apparent reason'; following this mode of thought...

Dream Deep

Dreaming big dreams with this labyrinth, where sprays of Queen Anne's Lace dance with enthusiasm. It was painted with spring fed creek water infused with fresh Queen Anne's Lace flower essence, fuchsite and sunstone. The qualities of the essences integrated into the painting facilitate the rejuvenation of joy, creativity, inspiration, clarity, and optimism, opening doors... Continue Reading →
