You never know…

Blessings

Weekend blessings to all of you!

I am still off-line, as all birthday girls should be.   🙂

Soon shall return to you, dear blogging friends.

Just had to share the photo of this flower!

Look how the spirit of the lily reveals itself to us so unexpectedly.

The pistols and stamens rise shimmering from the orange petals.

When we walk leisurely allowing our eyes to alight here, there, here, there, without allowing the Thoughts to direct the show–what mysteries life shares!

I have walked thus down the road marveling at Queen Anne’s lace, oh look a fawn, a shiny stone, over here that floating cloud, oh my a thought passes like that cloud, feet clap against gravel.

You never know what miracles shall be revealed next.

I am convinced at such times that we live in the Garden of Eden.  That our thoughts and busyness and opinions obscure the moment by moment delights.

We commit so much violence and pain on ourselves and others when we live by  mind alone.  (OK, maybe you don’t.  But many of us do.)

The spirit of flowers and humans shimmer when we surrender to the harmony that we are.

Peace…

    Day lilies taste good too, and they say that each color has a slightly different flavor. 🙂
