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.

Love Temple Wisdom No. 32

"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
“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.

— Toni Morrison

Today’s mantra: love.

“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
