Nature is My Muse

I vibrate to the tune of nature. Well-being flows effortlessly through me. I am the master of all I survey. Abundance is plentiful.

"Each and every component that makes up your life experience is drawn to you by the powerful Law of Attraction's response to the thoughts you think and the story you tell about your life. Your money and financial assets; your body's state of wellness, clarity, flexibility, size, and shape; your work environment, how you are treated, work satisfaction, and rewards—indeed, the very happiness of your life experience in general—is all happening because of the story that you tell." ---Abraham

"There is a Life Stream that flows to you, and this is a Stream of clarity, a Stream of wellness, a Stream of abundance... and in any moment, you are allowing it or not. What someone else does with the Stream, or not, does not have anything to do with how much of it will be left for you. This Stream is as abundant as your ideas allow it to be." ---Abraham Hicks

One of my favorite things to do while traveling abroad is to visit a city’s botanical garden. De Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam did not disappoint. I fell into a plant-lover’s wonderland, eyes-wide brimming with joy, excitedly taking in the majestic beauty of it all. The serene energy emanating from the luscious gardens swept me into such a peaceful state of mind. Oh, how I longed to move my things in and make De Hortus Botanicus my home!

"At some point in life the world's beauty becomes enough. You don't need to photograph, paint or even remember it. It is enough. No record of it needs to be kept and you don't need someone to share it with or tell it to. When that happens -- that letting go -- you let go because you can. The world will always be there -- while you sleep it will be there -- when you wake it will be there as well. So you can sleep and there is reason to wake." -- Toni Morrison

No record of it needs to be kept and you don’t need someone to share it with or tell it to. When that happens — that letting go — you let go because you can. The world will always be there — while you sleep it will be there — when you wake it will be there as well. So you can sleep and there is reason to wake.”

This review is long over due. I took so many pictures at the Philadelphia Flower Show that I had been putting off uploaded them to my computer. Well, I finally buckled down and did the deed. I’ll start off by saying that I love the theme of this year’s show, “ARTiculture”. The interplay between art and horticulture was fantastic. I enjoyed seeing some of my favorite artists presented in such novel ways.

Love Temple Wisdom No. 26

“Listen to your being. It is continuously giving you hints; it is a still, small voice. It does not shout at you, that is true. And if you are a little silent you will start feeling your way. Be the person you are. Never try to be another, and you will become mature. Maturity is accepting the responsibility of being oneself, whatsoever the cost. Risking all to be oneself, that's what maturity is all about.”  ― Osho

From the physical perspective, most of you believe that your beliefs are the right ones, and if you disagree with someone then they must be wrong. But from the Nonphysical standpoint, it is not seen as right and wrong.   It is seen as the powerful diversity that stimulates thought, and from the Nonphysical perspective, you enjoy that diversity.   ---Abraham
