May we learn from history and not repeat the same mistakes. May we learn from non-human animals that gratuitous violence and killing is not inherent in our animal nature, but rather a result of the deliberative process and conscious free-will by which humans choose to act (ironically, it is this evolved higher order of thinking that separates humans from animals.)
It is, ultimately, up to us, as rational, thinking beings to decide our common fate. Together, as one cohesive unit, we must make a choice that benefits and preserves humankind, the animal kingdom and our shared home planet.
Choose LOVE not Hate, PEACE not War!

Here is an animated gif created from several of my sunset shots, allowing me to revisit one moment in time.
If I could save the sky in a bubble,
capture clouds and horizon so blue,
I would be relieved of the mind-numbing trouble
of describing their beauty to you.
If I could save the sunset in a bottle,
The first thing that I’d want to do,
Is replace all your heartache and suffering
With the glow of divine love and truth.

There exists a harmony in nature like no other, a divine order and rhythm that is borne out of perfect chaos. It is by this process that the ever-expanding universe was created, the heavens and the Earth, the darkness and the light, all perfectly aligned in time and space, a precise balance and dynamic flow that never misses a beat or a turn of the wheel, a state of perpetual motion and constant change that define the infinite cycle of life. Has the sun ever failed to follow the moon? Has light ever failed to arise out of darkness or darkness to diminish light? Everything has a time, a season, a place…each moment, each breath, each experience is unique, fleeting and transitory…part of an infinite process set in motion upon the dawn of creation…an intensity of presence first rising, then falling, eventually dissipating into non-existence, while the next one manifests to replace the last…like a wave being swallowed up by the ocean…or a raindrop disappearing upon contact, merging with the Earth, or a larger body of water…once the part is absorbed into the whole, it ceases to exist as a separate entity…like all forms and phenomena in the physical plane of existence, this too shall pass. Take comfort in the present moment, just as it is, there is nothing else to attend to and nowhere else to be, except Here and Now.

Love & Light
One Swan-a-Swimming, its dark silhouette gliding gracefully across golden waters, a reflection of perfection, mirroring the glorious sunset, gold streaks splashed upon the infinite canvas of sky by God’s divine paintbrush.

Seasons shift like trends: what is now the rage, withers with the passage of time and eventually fades away into nostalgia. Until it bursts onto the scene like it never left, fresh & vibrant & new again.
In Autumn, Orange is the new Black.

“Reality Architects shape their world with their thoughts. By attracting higher frequency vibrations, or energy, from Universe, they co-create portals of light that transcend all perceptual boundaries. It is in this light that miracles manifest.”
