We must joyfully commit to serve each other in making an unprecedented and all encompassing shift in consciousness. What we have before us is the opportunity to create life on earth from a new consciousness that recognizes our eternal relationship with the Source of All That Is.

The Contemplative Life, Part I | April 15, 2013

dark trail in the woods

For many years, I had an intense desire to lead a contemplative life. In the past three years, I have begun to enjoy the manifestation of that desire, but it is nothing like my original vision of it thirty six years ago. I cannot even say I had a definition of a contemplative life, only an intense desire to find home base. Now I can see clearly which experiences assisted me in finally arriving at the place that A Course in Miracles calls our eternal home.

"Images have always been an important part of my life. They guide me through my desire to capture life as it unfolds around me, and they have always been a way to create scenes of my imagination and about my curiosity in the world I live in.
