"Something opens our wings. Something makes boredom and hurt disappear. Someone fills the cup in front of us: We taste only sacredness. " ~ Rumi

 “Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend... when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that's present / love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure / the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth.”

Yes, this is a picture of ME ~ emily!
I was so adorable! I am still adorable.....
but I have my moments.



1. very attractive or delightful; charming.
2. worthy of being adored.

I am NOT adorable when:

*   People are mean & hateful to me.
*   People don't "follow the rules" or "do the right thing".

*   I am excited/passionate/really engaged in an ART project.
*   I perform a "random act of kindness" & try not to get caught doing it.  

My challenge this week.....try to be ADORABLE!

A Spiritual Conspiracy

Photo courtesy of: geishaboy500
On the surface of the world right now there is
 war and violence and things seem dark.
..But calmly and quietly, at the same time, 
something else is happening underground. 
An inner revolution is taking place
 and certain individuals are being called to a higher light. 
It is a silent revolution.
 From the inside out. From the ground up.
 This is a Global operation. 
A Spiritual Conspiracy.
 There are sleeper cells in every nation on the planet.
 You won't see us on the TV.
 You won't read about us in the newspaper. 
You won't hear about us on the radio.
 We don't seek any glory.
 We don't wear any uniform. 
We come in all shapes and sizes, colors and styles.
  Most of us work anonymously
. We are quietly working behind the scenes 
in every country and culture of the world. 
Cities big and small, mountains and valleys,
 in farms and villages, tribes and remote islands.
 You could pass by one of us on the street
 and not even notice. 
We go undercover. 
We remain behind the scenes. 
It is of no concern to us who takes the final credit. 
But simply that the work gets done. 
Occasionally, we spot each other in the street.
 We give a quiet nod and continue on our way.
 During the day, many of us pretend we have normal jobs
But behind the false storefront at night 
is where the real work takes a place.
 Some call us the Conscious Army
. We are slowly creating a new world
 with the power of our minds and hearts.
 We follow, with passion and joy.
 Our orders come from the Central Spiritual Intelligence. 
We are dropping soft, secret love bombs when no one is looking
 ~ Poems ~ Hugs ~ Music ~ Photography ~ Movies ~ Kind words ~
 Smiles ~ Meditation and prayer ~ Dance ~ Social activism ~ Websites ~ 
Blogs ~ Random acts of kindness.
 We each express ourselves in our own unique ways
 with our own unique gifts and talents
. Be the change you want to see in the world.
 That is the motto that fills our hearts.
 We know it is the only way real transformation takes place.
 We know that quietly and humbly we have the
 power of all the oceans combined.
 Our work is slow and meticulous. 
Like the formation of mountains, 
it is not even visible at first glance.
 And yet, with it, entire tectonic plates 
shall be moved in the centuries to come
. Love is the new religion of the 21st century.
 You don't have to be a highly educated person 
or have any exceptional knowledge to understand it. 
It comes from the intelligence of the heart
 embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse of all human beings.

  Be the change you want to see in the world
. Nobody else can do it for you. 
We are now recruiting. 
Perhaps you will join us
...Or already have. 
All are welcome. 
The door is open.

My Wishes for You...
I look to the new year and my wish for you;

Peace within your heart

Love from family and friends
Faith to guide your way
Hope to to make it through each day
Sunshine to light the day
Heavenly Stars to wish upon
Rainbows to to let you know there is a tomorrow
A tear to show compassion
A heart to hold the love
But most of all I wish for you
to feel my hand in yours,
To know I am here if you stumble or fall.
To bring you cheer, to bring you love,
to return the love you always share with me.
