 Canvas

Meditation: Canvas

What will you paint on the canvas of your life? What colors will touch others by the things you paint with your thoughts, words, and actions? What beauty – or lack thereof – will come forth from your particular art of living? Live artfully with grace, truth, love, and power. Power to forgive. Power to love. Power to Inspire others.

What will you do with the canvas, known as life.? Artfully offer your unique beauty.

When the Spirit of truth comes, She will guide you into all the truth; for She will not speak on Her own, but will speak whatever She hears, and She will declare to you the things that are to come.

John 16:13

One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.

The love of truth and beauty.

The attentive soul.

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

I Peter 3:3-4

Spirit-Soul-Body

Meditation: Spirit – Soul – Body

Who are you? Who are we? What does it mean, this sweet, impossible, mysterious life we’ve been given? The trinity that we are. Spirit. Soul. Body.

Know thyself. Know the movement of the Spirit. Honor your soul and body through the quickening the Spirit. This is life. Life more abundant.

anthony glenn miller

But when She, the Spirit of truth, comes, She will guide you into all the truth. She will not speak on Her own; She will speak only what She hears, and She will tell you what is yet to come.

John 16:13

 

Garden

Meditation: Gardens

Each person is a secret garden. A garden well tended, or mis-managed, or simply neglected. What will be your offering to this world in need? Tend your garden. The garden of your mind, body, and soul. Offer your unique beauty. Offer your particular vibration of love and light. Walk in beauty.

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:11-12

True beauty within.

Within souls aflame with love.

Abide in the Christ.

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

And how are they to proclaim him unless they are sent?

As it is written,

“How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

Romans 10:15

Beauty

Meditation: Beauty

While living in Big Sur (California) a monk from New Camaldoli Hermitage introduced me to this beautiful waterfall.  This waterfall is about 160 miles south of San Francisco, California.  We would pass this waterfall while traveling along US Highway 1, near Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park.  I’ve traveled extensively around the world.  Yet, when I return to California, where I was born, I’m reminded of the beauty that resides close at hand.

What beauty is close at hand in your world?  It could be the face of a stranger.  The sound of a baby crying.  The stories shared from an elderly person waiting to be heard.  A tree you’ve never really looked at closely.  Notice the beauty in the face of a family member, friend, or someone you see occasionally but never took the time to truly see more intently.  Notice the beauty that shines through a person of gentleness and kindness.   Notice the beauty that shines through those who struggle with their personal demons and the injustice in our world.  We are surrounded by beauty, even in the midst of the ugliness and challenges of life.  Honor life.  Honor beauty.

Beauty abounds.  Awaken.  Enjoy the journey.

earth & sky

The natural way is the way of the sage,  
serving as his dwelling,  
providing his centre deep within,  
whether in his home or journeying.  
Even when he travels far,  
he is not separate  
from his own true nature.  
Maintaining awareness of natural beauty,  
he still does not forget his purpose.

Chapter 26 – Tao Te Ching

earth & sky

Do not adorn yourselves outwardly by braiding your hair,

and by wearing gold ornaments or fine clothing;

rather, let your adornment be the inner self with the lasting beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit…

I Peter 3:3-4
