I was truly moved by this poem and wanted to share. Unfortunately there was no author listed or I’d give the creator of this beauty credit.

“Do you see in this photo my friend, the fragility and the balance which lies Within yourself, within all others, within all creation? For as the Earth rotates at great speed, as it flies forward on its beautiful Neverending journey around our Sun, There is an illusion of stillness in the world.
These stones stand because of the inner rhythmic dance Of the MAGNETIC LOVE each stone feels for the other, Through the intent of their guide, The KISS OF THE CO-CREATOR Hidden within US ALL.
AWAKEN to that part of yourself, which is your own gift to the world. SHINE YOUR OWN LIGHT BRIGHTLY making manifest through your own GIFT of co-creation that you choose to share with the world, Whatever form it may take.”
While savouring the feeling of interconnectedness during my morning yoga practice today, I was reminded of this beautiful Native American quote by Black Elk.
“At the centre of the universe dwells the Great Spirit. And that centre is really everywhere. It is within each of us.” -Black Elk
How very true this is.
He shared the many profound and powerful visions he experienced, my favourite being one he described after seeing a great tree. (which represents the Tree of Life)
“And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and understood more than I saw.
For I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being.
And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all the children of one mother and one father.
