Unnoticed Beauty

The truly faithful
do not discriminate
and they are not confused,
for they penetrate
the illusion of diversity
and see only
the unity and beauty of
which is real.

Colorful Darkness

The seemingly pitch black darkness of a room can be eliminated by a single candlelight, and instantly that darkness flees, but the opposite cannot be done…

You can’t go to a well lit room full of light and truth and take any amount of darkness and have any effect whatsoever… No amount of darkness can extinguish the light of one small candle… That’s why Darkness has no truth in it… There’s color in Darkness…

Valley Spirit…

The valley spirit dies not, aye the same;
The female mystery thus do we name.
Its gate, from which at first they issued forth,
Is called the root from which grew heaven and earth.
Long and unbroken does its power remain,
Used gently, and without the touch of pain…

I found this family in a frozen lake… I have no idea how bubbles can also freeze like that in their natural shape…
