Now that spring is showing off her sparkling wares, I’m spending a lot more time with my camera.
I take pictures.
A lot of pictures.
And it’s so wonderful to share them. Mostly on Facebook.
I am nearly unstoppable in my picture taking-sharing. Always something more. Always something radiating Beauty. Often something that will cause you to pause. Sometimes something surprising, or something you can’t quite see right away.
Yes, that’s by design.
All of it.
The Beauty, the pause, the Wonder and the wonder-what.
I’m still learning. Learning and re-learning and learning again that the Universe is always there for me – for you – for us.
She wants us to remember so that we’re ready when the good stuff happens.
She wants us to feel all those feelings so our hearts are unlocked, broken-open, so all that we need can flow through us.
She wants us to trust her.
She leaves us notes of love scrawled in the language of Beauty and Wonder. Whispering our stories to us in shimmering curves. Revealing the keys to the world in tiny droplets. Awakening our very souls with sensuous hues.
With my camera in hand I feel like an explorer, like the heroine in a brightly colourful adventure game.
Until I see one of her love notes.
Once my eyes see the Beauty, the flow of my heart rules.
Everything else falls away.
I feel lifted, connected, whole, grateful.
It’s like swimming, no, like floating, in a river flowing with everything I need.
The real Wonder of it is that it happens again and again.
And that I can share it with you.
Because it’s not really the pictures I want to share with you, it’s her love notes.
It’s the way her Beauty and Wonder make me feel.
In a world where even bright hearts and well-meaning souls spend their time mired in the sad and the corrupt and the dangerous, she still wants us to see her.
To trust her.
To let everything else fall away
And feel the flow of her through us.
So when you see these photos I take, these photos I share, remember: they are the love of the Universe.
She wants you to see, too.
How do you feel when you see Beauty? How do you make room for the flow of the Universe?
