Like the Sun, a radiant heart unfolds beauty

Radiant Sun

Our compassion flows out to those suffering pain and terror amidst the conflicts that ravage so much of our planet.

Our Lighted Home

Earth lights

Though the words, house and home, are often used interchangeably there are subtle differences that register in our energy response.

To see a world in a grain of sand

What a bundle of contradictions we humans can seem to be! We want to belong, to be like everyone else, and yet at the same time we desire to be acknowledged and to express our individuality within the larger group.

The Path Into Infinity

At this time of year while there is an emphasis on finishing up and fulfilling undertakings, there is also a magnetic pull into the seasonal celebrations and the prospect of a fresh start with a new year. In a way we are both poised and yet fast moving forward like an arrow still in high flight between bow and target …

Intimations of Immortality

Immortality

In our multifaceted world there are many different ways of seeing any one situation.
