You have noticed that everything as Indian does 
is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round..... 
The Sky is round, and I have heard 
that the earth is round like a ball, and so are 
all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. 
Birds make their nest in circles, for 
theirs is the same religion as ours....

Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing,
and always come back again to where they were. 
The life of a man is a circle from 
childhood to childhood, and so it is in 
everything where power moves.
Black Elk

theses were some moments.

from this past week.

from the radiance that the sun provides.

making the birds take flight and song.

to the silence that covers the land.

as the snow gently falls.

the circle.

happens in it's own time.

who am i to try and stop it.

who am i to complain about it happening.

my purpose.

is to enjoy the ride.

welcome to coffee hour.

welcome to this Sunday morning.

just BE.

...the space in which all things happen...

I am not my thoughts, emotions, sense perceptions and experiences,
 I am not the content of my life. I AM LIFE
 I am the space in which all things happen.
 I am consciousness. I AM THE NOW I AM.

...week twenty-seven of 52 photos project...

Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. 
And when it subsides you have to make a decision. 
You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together
 that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. 
Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, 
it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. 
That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are.

Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away,
 and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. 
Your mother and I had it,
 we had roots that grew towards each other underground,
 and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches 
we found that we were one tree and not two.

Louis De Bernieres

"When you rest in quietness and your image of yourself fades, 
and your image of the world fades,
 and your ideas of others fade, what's left ?
 A brightness, 
a radiant emptiness that is simply what you are"
 ~ Adyashanti ~

was talk of clean underwear.
to which someone asked.
who doesn't wear clean underwear.
what may have been missed.
is the fact that the statement.
will always.
lead to laughter.
and one day.
when my daughter.
may be having a sad day.
she can remember the moments.
when she laughed with her grandma.
about clean underwear.
that is really what it's about.
a brightness.
a radiant emptiness.
the is simply.
what you are.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.

...clean underwear...

Make sure you got clean underwear, she always said,
 in case you get in an accident & I always figured that'd be the least of my worries,
 but now I'm older & I see there's a lot you can't control
 & some you can control & clean underwear is one of those you can.
 For the most part.

my mom just said this.
to my daughter last week.
good advice.
but the moment was.
the laughter that accompanied the advice.
enjoy the moments.

Friday, October 18, 2013 the middle of the raging winds...

when life is hectic or stressed,
remember that every hurricane has its "eye"
the still point in the middle of the raging winds.
you too can retrain a calm center,
by remembering that your essential self is immune to circumstances.
trust in your ability to respond to any situation 
with the courage and wisdom you can draw from the core of your being.

Love is a force more formidable than any other.
 It is invisible - it cannot be seen or measured, 
yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment,
 and offer you more joy than any material possession could.
Barbara de Angelis 

a week.
of moments.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
