“And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth,
“You owe me.”
Look what happens with love like that.
It lights up the sky.” - Rumi #sky #rumi #beauty #grace #latergram #dayton #ohio #sugarcreek #landscapephotography #blessed #thankful #hope #faith
“A human life, I think, should be well rooted in some spot of native land, where it may get the love of tender kinship for the face of the earth, for the labours of men go forth to, for the sounds and accents that haunt it, for whatever will give that early home a familiar unmistakable difference among the future widening of knowledge: a spot where the definiteness of early memories may be inwrought with affection, and kindly acquaintance with all neighbors, even to the dogs and donkeys, may spread not by sentimental effort and reflection, but as a sweet habit of the blood.” - George Eliot
On the Other Side of Autumn by Jim Crotty on Flickr.
When November arrives. Morning moonset over meadow.
“Once the soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back. From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing that will never again let you linger in the lowlands of complacency and partial fulfillment. The eternal makes you urgent. You are loath to let compromise or the threat of danger hold you back from striving toward the summit of fulfillment.” ― John O’Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
“The way to express our gratitude for life is by being truly alive.” - Don Miguel Ruiz
Because it’s worth it. Returning to nature, again and again. This is something I’ve done all my life. The woods. The mountains. The ocean. The canyons. In those moments and places I always find the sacredness that is the bond between the inherent goodness of the human heart and the promise of beauty. In disconnecting I have found my way to connect. When lost in the light of autumn dusk a path always emerges. Back again and through all the false noise that is fear and doubt something is always there that brings me back home. The soul yearns and the spirit endures. In brief glances I see that there is so much more.
“Go into the heart of Love, and come from that place in all your choices and decisions, and you will find peace.”
~Neale Donald Walsch
“We need to be willing to let our intuition guide us, and then be willing to follow that guidance directly and fearlessly.”
