★Beauty, Depth and Richness in the World

Here’s a place where beautiful things we see can be shared. It isn’t ‘really’ all going to hell in a hand-basket – people are just forgetting to look for the good things. Let’s make a list – what do YOU think is beautiful? :)

  • All photos posted here are royalty-free (as far as I know) so feel free to share them elsewhere giving credit to the thread here – enjoy! :)

I’ll start with a snippet of a beautiful poem called ‘Renascence’ by Edna St. Vincent Millay:

Ah! Up then from the ground sprang I
And hailed the earth with such a cry
As is not heard save from a man
Who has been dead, and lives again.
About the trees my arms I wound;
Like one gone mad I hugged the ground;
I raised my quivering arms on high;
I laughed and laughed into the sky,

Love & Light to All! :)

P.S. – Thanks to Smart_Routines_With_Enthusiasm’s instructions in the Song Of The Day Thread – I got a live link AND a pic into this post. Thanks bunches! :)

Life Less Ordinary

Welcome to bmindful WolfWillow(: Must agree…perfect picture great thread idea & a wonderful poem peace & joy , selfcare

  • RICHER LIVING Today I expect the more abundant life by keeping my every thought and expectation open to new experiences, to happier events, to a more complete self-expression. Giving out more love, I know a greater love in return. Sharing with life whatever good things I have, I know life shares with me the good that it possesses. Seeing beauty everywhere, I have a revelation of still more beauty. Seeing joy in everything, I know genuine laughter. More deeply sensing the Divine Tranquility in which all things exist, I have a deeper consciousness of peace and security. Through it all I know that I am in the embrace of a warm, loving Presence forever seeking an outlet through me. Ernest Holmes

In the infinity of life where I am,
all is perfect,whole,and complete.
I believe in a power far Greater than I am
that flows through me every moment of everyday.
I open myself to the wisdom within,
knowing that there is only One Intelligence in this Universe.
Out of this One Intelligence comes all the answers,
all the solutions,all the healings,all the new creations.
I trust this Power and Intelligence,
knowing that whatever I need to know is revealed to me,
and that whatever I need comes to me
in the right time,space,and sequence.
All is well in my world.
Louise Hay

Hi WolfWillow ,welcome to the forum and you have started with a lovely thread .

Here is a beautiful video

The Ripple Effect

and another favourite
the gentle art of blessing

I have posted these on other threads and thought they would be nice on here too
love flowergirl

I picture something, it’s beautiful
It’s full of life, and it is all blue
I’ve seen the sunset on the beach, yeah
It makes me feel calm
When I’m calm, I feel good

And when I feel good, I sing
And the joy it brings makes me feel good
And when I feel good, I sing
And the joy it brings

Come on along
I know you really wanna feel our song
We’ve got some life to bring
We’ve got some joy in this thing
(x2)

I see birds fly across the sky
And everyone’s heart flies together
Food is frying and people smiling
Like there is no other way to feel good

And when I feel good, I sing
And the joy it brings makes me feel good
Cos when I feel good, I sing
Of the joy it brings

Come on along
I know you really wanna feel our song
We’ve got some life to bring
We’ve got some joy in this thing
(x2)

It brings me freedom
Got to get you some of that freedom
It’s a freedom

Singing freedom
You deserve your freedom
It’s a smile you can feel in your heart beat

 

 

Quotes•
• Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude. [Dennis Waitley]

• I’m going to be happy. I’m going to skip. I’m going to be glad. I’m going to smile a lot. I’m going to be easy. I’m going to count my blessings. I’m going to look for reasons to feel good.

to dig up positive things from the past. I’m going to look for positive things where I stand. I’m going to loo for positive things in the future. It is my natural state to be a happy person. It’s natural for me to love and to laugh. This is what is most natural for me. I am a happy person![Abraham]

 

 

 

 

 

Normal day , let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return. Mary Jean Irion

Listening is a magnetic and
strange thing, a creative force…
When we are listened to,
it creates us,
makes us unfold and expand.
Ideas actually begin to grow
within us and come to life…
When we listen to people
there is an alternating current,
and this recharges us so that
we never get tired of each other…
and it is this little creative fountain
inside us that begins to spring and cast up
new thoughts and unexpected
laughter and wisdom. …
Well, it is when people really listen to us,
with quiet fascinated attention,
that the little fountain begins
to work again, to accelerate
in the most surprising way.
Brenda Ueland

I Had A Dream

I had a dream the other night
Of a world without fools greed
And everything it felt so good
As each fulfilled their needs.

Tolerance was all around
No bigots walked the Earth
And snobbery did not exist
To rob folk of self -worth.

And everyone they walked with joy
As through their lives they danced
And love it filled the whole darned place
You could tell it at a glance.

Gentle people ruled the lands
With serenity and joy.
And folk all tried to understand
Folk’s feelings weren’t destroyed.

And wisdom flowed there like a river
And life was ruled by love
And all around rich beauty glowed
Like a blessing from above.

The simplest things are often the most true. ~ Richard Bach ~

THE FINAL LESSON

I have sought beauty through the dust of strife,
I have sought meaning for the ancient ache,
And music in the grinding wheels of life;
Long have I sought, and little found as yet
Beyond this truth: that Love alone can make
Earth beautiful, and life without regret!

By Arthur Stringer

In response to WolfWillow’s post:
My pleasure(: I Thank you WolfWillow…

Blessing Space Between Us

May the presence and power of spirit surround, support and guide us and keep us safe.
May we remember the deep love we have for each other.
May we greet our emerging differences with tenderness and tolerance.
May we call on our courage to speak our truth, and reveal our vulnerabilities.
May we reflect back to others without blaming or shaming.
May we hear the truth others speak with compassion.
May we have patience with their process and emergence.
May we pause, breathe, and let ourselves settle.
May we stand in love and strength together.
May our rough edges be doorways to healing. – Bette Acuff

THE MOMENT

Breathe in this perception
Simple acceptance of what is
Grasp the utter freedom in every moment
The nature of our oneness
With all

There is a depth we do not tap
In day-to-day busyness
But it is there with peace and joy and all the rest
Always present
We never really need to look

The quality of light in us is whole
It illuminates the truth
That we are never fragmented

The truth is that
What we are holds the All
And life itself is grace

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE- Author Unknown
I love, honor, accept, respect and approve of you as you are, as you seek to find your own special way to relate to the world, or the way you feel that is right for you. It is important that you are the person you choose and desire to be and not someone that I or others think you should be.

I realize that I cannot know what is best for you though perhaps sometimes I think I do. I have not been where you have been, viewing life from the angle that you have. I do not know what you have chosen to learn, who you have chosen to learn it with or in what time period. I have not walked life looking through your eyes, so how can I know what you need?

I allow you to be in the world without a thought or word of judgment from me about the deeds you undertake. I see no error in the things you say and do, in this place where I am. I see that there are many ways to perceive and experience the different facets of our world. I allow, without reservation your right to make the choices you make in each moment.

I make no judgment of this, for if I were to deny you your right to evolution then I would deny that right to myself and all others. To those who would choose a way I cannot walk, whilst I may not choose to add my power and my energy to this way, I will never deny you the gift of Unconditional Love that the Creator bestowed within me for all creation, as I love you so I shall be loved, as I sow, so shall I reap.

I honor and respect the universal right of free will – that you walk your own path, following your love, light and truth, creating steps or sitting a while if that is what is right for you. I make no judgment of these steps, whether they are large or small, nor light or heavy or that they lead up or down, for this is just my viewpoint. While I [may perceive that I] see you do nothing and judge it to be unworthy I honor and respect that it may be that you bring great healing as you stand blessed by the light of the Creator.

I accept and honor that I cannot always see the higher picture of divine order and that it is the inalienable right of all Beings to choose their own evolution and with unconditional love I acknowledge your right to determine your future. In humility, I bow to the realization that the way I see is best for me but does not have to mean that it is also right for you. I know that you are led as I am, following the inner excitement of your own path.

I know that many races, religions, customs, nationalities and beliefs within our world bring us great richness and allow us the benefit of diverse teachings. I know we each learn in our own unique way in order to bring that love and wisdom back to the whole. I know that if there were only one way to do something, there would need to be only one person. I love you unconditionally whether or not you behave in a way I think you should, or believe in those things I believe in. I understand you are truly my brothers and sisters though you may have been born in a different place and believe in another way than I.

The unconditional love I feel is for all of the Creator’s worlds and universes. I know that every living Being is part of the Creator and I feel unconditional love deep within me for every person, and all trees, and flowers, every bird, river and ocean – for all the creatures throughout the world. I live my life in loving service, being the best me I can, becoming wiser in the perfection of divine truth, becoming happier in the joy of unconditional love.

I love you unconditionally with no strings attached and no expectations just as you are Now. I thank you unconditionally for Being you and the many blessings your Being brings to me and my world.colors-5.jpg?w=996&h=560

What Makes Us Human by David Richo

Book: How to Be an Adult in Faith and Spirituality
 

Our innate longing to find order in chaos
Our playfulness
Our indomitable hope
Our outrage at evil
Our irrepressible sense of humor
Our ability to love unconditionally:
to go on loving no matter how we are treated by others
The durability of our capacity to love no matter
what happened to us in the past
Our willingness to put ourselves second,
even to risk our life for others
Our capacity to forgive and let go
Our ineradicable belief that there is goodness
and redemption in every human heart
Our sense of accompaniment by a protecting presence
Our knack for showing our best when things are
at their worst
Our intuition that reveals more than we logically know
Our choice to be honest when no one is looking
Our refusal to accept defeat in the face of unalterable odds
Our striving for what lies beyond our grasp:
our inclination to stretch
Our power to say, do, or be something that leads to
healing ourselves and others
Our abiding sense that the universe is friendly and that there is ultimately
a loving intent in all that happens to us.

I live a completely charmed life

I’m Counting My Blessings
 
I’m counting my blessings.
I’ve been gifted with another day
to experience being alive.
I choose to make the best of this moment,
and I vow not to take this day,
Nor its gifts, for granted.
 
I appreciate the little things
that are too often missed, passed by.
I’m intent on seeing the beauty
that’s usually hidden in plain sight,
for I know that I’m blessed just to be here,
participating in life on Earth.
 
I give thanks for the tiny miracle today,
For perhaps there are no little things.
To live at all is miracle enough.
