In Celebration of Mother Earth

“Nature voices natural, spiritual law and divine Love,  but human belief misinterprets nature. Arctic regions, sunny tropics, giant hills, winged winds,  mighty billows, verdant vales, festive flowers,  and glorious heavens, – all point to Mind, the spiritual intelligence they reflect. The floral apostles are hieroglyphs of Deity. Suns and planets teach grand lessons.  The stars make night beautiful, and the leaflet turns naturally towards the light.” – Mary Baker Eddy

Presence is needed to become aware of the beauty, the majesty, the sacredness of nature…You have to put down for a moment your personal baggage of problems, of past and future, as well as your knowledge; otherwise, you will see but not see, hear but not hear.  Your total presence is required.”
– 
from The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”
– Isaiah 55: 12

  2. I love these photos. I live outside of the city in a heavily wooded area and it is full blown summer here in Alabama. Yesterday it was 90 degrees . It is so green and lush . I love this time of year before the oppressive humidity sets in. I was outside last night and there were lighting bugs everywhere. It seems early for them as I always associate them with mid summer and I never remember seeing them in April. I wonder if that has something to so with climate change, I don’t know. They were still beautiful though! I wanted to ask if this Otter family was the same one on your Homepage. I really love that photo there! Rick

    • I love fireflies! the only time I’ve ever seen them was when I was back east. They are magic. 🙂 I feel pretty sure we’re seeing climate change here in the Pacific Northwest – two years of little rain, and now months and months of gray. But, you’re right, there is still beauty to be found. And yes! It’s the same otter family – that was an amazing day!

      Always good to hear from you, Rick!
