16864902_1296237937092072_2133649598643149384_n

The Creator gathered all of Creation and said:
“I want to hide something from the humans
until they are ready for it.
It is the realization that they create their own reality.”
The eagle said,
“Give it to me, I will take it to the moon.”
The Creator said,
“No. One day they will go there and find it.”
The salmon said,
“I will bury it on the bottom of the ocean.”
“No. They will go there too.”
The buffalo said,
“I will bury it on the Great Plains.”
The Creator said,
“They will cut into the skin of the Earth and find it even there.”
Grandmother Mole, who lives in the breast of Mother Earth,
and who has no physical eyes but sees with spiritual eyes, said,
“Put it inside of them.”
And the Creator said,
“It is done.”

“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right,
especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake.
Society’s punishments are small
compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul
when we look the other way.”

~ Martin Luther King Jr

The Wine and the Cup

Screen Shot 2017-02-24 at 10.37.03 PM.png

The wine of divine grace is limitless:
All limits come only from the faults of the cup.
Moonlight floods the whole sky from horizon to horizon;
How much it can fill your room depends on its windows.
Grant a great dignity, my friend, to the cup of your life;
Love has designed it to hold His eternal wine.

~Rumi

But even before I was born, God chose me and called me by his marvelous grace. ~Excerpt from Galatians 1:15  ✝

The real hunger we feel…

Purplerays

220px-Greed,_1924,_06_banchetto

“The attempt to satisfy greed is
like drinking salty water when
thirsty.
When lost in greed we look outward
rather than inward for satisfaction,
yet we never find enough to fill the
emptiness we wish to escape.
The real hunger we feel is for
knowledge of our true nature.”

~Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche~

#Winged Jewels . . . meet The Lilac Breasted Roller

16684326_1307727425981920_6118072740673961006_n

“The Lilac Breasted Roller feeds on grasshoppers, beetles,
occasionally lizards, crabs, and small amphibians. . . .
They make unlined nests in natural tree holes or in termite hills.
Sometimes they take over woodpecker’s or kingfisher’s nest holes.”

~ (krugerpark. co. za)
