....My sacred moment Sunday


"When you look on another human being and feel great love toward them..
.or when you contemplate beauty in nature
and something within you responds deeply to it...
close your eyes for a moment and feel the essence of that love or that beauty within you, inseparable from who you are, your true nature.
The outer form is a temporary reflection of what you are within, in your essence.
That is why love and beauty can never leave you, although all outer forms will."
Eckhart Tolle...

Isn't that beautiful?....? It's a wow moment for me!

Tolle’ says, “Viewing beauty is one way to be in the now.”
as we look at art and it moves us we are usually fully present
.....as artists when we are at work creating and get in that heavenly groove, when everything is coming together as Spirit speaks, we are fully in the moment…..
in the Now.....
.the Monkey Mind is quiet.

It's why I love creating my figures...it puts me into some sort of stream,
I feel floaty and I tingle...

That's what being in the moment does...It puts me in a positive flow...
accepting,
letting each moment come and feeling it's all as it should be...
it's meditation.
and no wonder I feel so good when I get out into nature...
when we surround ourselves with art, music, poetry...
We are the beauty, it is our essence....
....Really a mind blowing & comforting thought.


"What art offers is space - a certain breathing room for the spirit." (John Updike)

We need art in the schools...

Oh Julie, you have totally made my day today! It is such a peaceful state of mind to know that one can be in the moment, to actually feel the soles of your feet touching the ground. To see the beauty that spring is blessing you with, right at that moment. Namaste.

Deb, you made mine too...and brought tears to my eyes...I've been wondering what to do to portray 'Being Green', which is a new show at the gallery I belong to...when I read the words...Walk lightly in the Spring; Mother Earth is pregnant. (Kiowa)...the vision was set and I know what I want to share...Thank you so much for sharing your light...hug, hug and namaste...

Eckhart Tolle ~ says it all ~ thanks for reminding me ~ When is "your being green" due? I think your dolls already are "green" ~ you use much of nature in them ~

Hugs and namaste, Carol

Great posting. I really love Mr/Ms Buddha sitting there looking all placid and serene with snow in his/her lap, and I rejoice in your experience of creating art.

Every time one of you posts, having the most gracious things to say, I feel a little lighter....

Carol...the Green piece is due the first Monday in April...the 6th, I think. I was fortunate today to have the piece flow easily to the point I'm at...I'll post a photo...but attaching and the general construction of the piece is still a puzzle& so is the total vision.

Snowbrush, what you said really touched me...You asked about Sacred Sunday awhile back and I've neglected answering...as I understand it, signing up for Sacred Sunday means that I have committed to posting something that is spiritual in content..and that would be anything I feel is enhancing to my journey.

namaste...
