Friday

I wanted to share this moment with you . . .

"Anywhere is paradise; it's up to you. " - Author Unknown

I was sitting quietly at my desk as the late afternoon Sun gently crept around the corner of the building ready to shed its slanted light into the sheltered part of the garden.

From out of nowhere the most intense golden beam of sunlight flooded in through the large window of my room, chasing away the gloom of the previous moment as it shone.

I looked up in awe as it pierced through the heart pendant in my window
and refracted into thousands of shimmering diamonds of light
that covered me and made me gasp with joy.

I was dazzled with the light, the beauty, the moment

. . . as my heart was filled with sunshine.

"Once your awareness becomes a flame,
it burns up the whole slavery
that the mind has created."
- Osho

Thanks for sharing this moment, and the photo, and the quote...the flame of awareness spreads through your powerful sharing Susannah. My heart bows to the "ordinary" beauty that floods our days, often unnoticed...Your words are an invitation to notice the richness of the moment.

Love the photo-love the quotes, as always! My mom always has lots of prisms of different shapes & colors hanging in her window and I never get tired of seeing the living room filled with matchbook-sized rainbows. The red color of your prism is just perfect!

Susannah said...

What a gorgeous metaphor, Susannah! Not only was the physical prism gorgeous and uplifting; when we reflect others' lights off the prism of our hearts, we create starbursts of beauty and love by drinking in their glow. I am so glad you share this!

For many years I had a cut glass heart, moon and star hanging by my patio door, which sent the rainbows dancing round my living room. They were rather fragile, though, and eventually had to be moved. But a friend from work gave me a huge 'diamond' paperweight - much more stable- which sits on my desk, and produces the firefly fairies from there. I'd miss them, if they disappeared...

Susannah said...

Good to see you here Jinksy. x

Thank-you for re-sharing this lovely bit. I also love the quote at the top of your page. I will try to find my paradise now as I vacuum and do laundry after a trying attempt at painting my sons room:)
