the entire universe has conspired to create you; in a singular and sacred process, from the atomic furnaces of thousands of suns, matter and energy strewn across the cosmos, birthed from randomness and uncertainty, harmonized by the unconditional love of our mother Earth, manifested from pure possibility into such exquisite beauty, we are stardust, connected to and humbled by the whole of existence; unique, united, and aware!

when I admire the wonders of the sky, my soul expands. clouds come floating into my life, no longer to just carry rain or bring storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. experiencing life on this planet is beautiful and I’m just happy to be chosen to be here.

Eduardo Rodriguez Calzado: Harmonic Images of Life and Consciousness 

Artist on Tumblr, on deviantART

With the use of bright colors, geometric shapes, dashes and dots I create extraordinary abstract imagery. I have been a painter for most of my life, taking painting classes from a very young age, but it wasn’t until recently that I started expressing myself through my artwork.

I am an artist obsessed with detail, expressing emotions through the fragmentation of color, capturing a great light in my artwork. In most of my paintings I represent the human form or some sort of human element and our connection to another plane of consciousness . In my process of painting, I sometimes have a very clear image of what I want to represent, they are images that pop into my head, and that is what I put down on canvas. At other times I just work from a feeling and start putting forms and colors down and later I look at it and find the story I want to tell.

Have you seen the work of Emily Blincoe?! These colorful tomato prints are just the most awesome! 

This is the real secret of life— to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now and instead of calling it work, realize it is play.

As you breathe in, cherish yourself. As you breathe out, cherish all beings.

MOON MOSAIC — A gorgeous image of the Moon from Noel Carboni via NASA: “No single exposure can easily capture faint stars along with the subtle colors of the Moon. But this dramatic composite view highlights both. The mosaic digitally stitches together fifteen carefully exposed high resolution images of a bright, gibbous Moon and a representative background star field. The fascinating color differences along the lunar surface are real, though highly exaggerated, corresponding to regions with different chemical compositions.” (NASA)

Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.

Our world is expressive. Reality, in its very life process, expresses itself. There is a communicative aspect. We call this duality. Duality is the world of you, me, dog, river, tree and donut. Things appearing as distinct entities—that’s duality. Only because the one continuous field of consciousness and energy is free to appear as many is this magnificent theater of communication possible.

I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.

As long as you have certain desires about how it ought to be you can’t see how it is.

The search for reality is the most dangerous of all undertakings for it will destroy the world in which you live. But if your motive is love of truth and life, you need not be afraid.

Refuse to think of yourself in terms of this or that. Fight with all the strength at your disposal against the idea that you are nameable and describable.

You are not.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, from What Is Namable? (via violentwavesofemotion)

Whatever happens, happens to you by you, through you; you are the creator, enjoyer and destroyer of all you perceive.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (via freyjageist)

I need no inspiration other then Nature’s. She has never failed me yet. She mystifies me, bewilders me, sends me into ecstasies.
