Miracle thinking

Hjärtan“There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle”, Albert Einstein.

Beginning Again

DSC_4100Creation is ongoing. The world begins anew each day. That is the miracle that makes not a sound, but which changes everything, if we can be quit enough to feel it happen. When we can participate in this, we begin anew each day. Consider how the sun washes the Earth with its heat and then clouds dissipate, and grasses grow, and stones crumble when no one is looking to reveal a smoother, deeper face. It is the same with us. In a moment of realness, the clouds in our mind clear and our passion is restored, and our walls crumble when no one is looking. It all continues and refreshes, if we let it. It all renews so subtly. We think it is night that covers the world, but everything living is re-created in that mysterious moment of rest that blankets us all. And each time you blink, if you pause to let your heart flutter with nothing but air to flutter about, each time you open your eyes, you can begin again. It is true. This is the moment of resurrection, the opening of your eyes. These beautiful words comes from “The book of awakening” by Mark Nepo. Today is a new beginning for me.
For the first time in many, many months I can relax and once again enjoy life fully. I have much to be thankful for, and I look forward to once more be in contact with all of you. Dear Wp-friends, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! // Marianne

Your garden

Dreaming

DSC_5903“All men dream, but not all equally. Those who dream by night, in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake to find it was all vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, and make things happen,” T.E. Lawrence.
I apologize for my absent, I long to be able to post both short and long articles but my right shoulder, and arm needs a rest to be able to heal. I am here in spirit and I hope to be back very soon in writing as well. I will also answer your comments as soon as possible. Until then, take care of yourself! //Marianne
