Quote of the Day – July 15 2012

“To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.”
― Pema Chödrön


When I was younger I used to move around a lot. I believe the longest I lived anyplace from the time I was 16 when I moved from my mother’s house to my father’s until I was 26 was about eight months and my life after that point took another ten years to settle down. With each move came various amounts of disillusionment, relief, excitement with a bit of fear. Each one increased my awareness to some extent. I threw myself down more rabbit holes than Alice ever dreamed of and came out the other side until I finally learned it was possible to learn from life without a great upheaval in physical circumstances.

Each new insight that we gain has the ability to rock our internal worlds. If we are conscious every time we discover that the universe is more or other than we have been told or believed our universe changes. Since the most we can ever understand of universal truth is a fraction this can happen every day. We are eternal children ever discovering that the universe is bigger than we’ve known. And so our fractal awareness grows.
Blessings, G

    1. Thanks…I had been looking for reference material for quite awhile, then the last night of a recent holiday, we were about to take a river cruise and these 30 senior ladies in various red hats and purple shirts all came at once. I persuaded 3 of them to pose for the image as my family looked on. They were magnificent!!!

    Indeed, that’s true.

    Love your image here. I see into the eyes of the being at the center. 7th chakra comes to mind.

  2. i adore your three of cups! and i resonate so much with what you say. i have done that too, and you put it so well, the lessons, growth, and moving around. thank you, kindred.

    1. So glad you liked it. For three years at every family function i have been trying to find opportunity for my nieces to pose for me but it didn’t materialize.
      I was going on a boat tour down the Saskatoon river last week and around 30 senior ladies all wearing various red hats and purple shirts, some quite wild all were on the tour too. On impulse I asked three of them to pose for me and they with incredible grace did so. 🙂
