I Am the dust in the Sunlight. I Am the ball of the Sun. I Am the mist of Morning, the breath of Evening. I Am the spark in the Stone, the gleam of Gold in the Metal, the Rose and the Nightingale drunk with its Fragrance. I Am the chain of Being, the Circle of Spheres, the scale of Creation, the Rise and the Fall. I Am what Is and is not. I Am the Soul in All --Rumi (art;e11en<3vaman) facebook.com/ellenvaman
What is a blessing? A blessing is a circle of light that is drawn around a person, place or thing, to protect, heal and strengthen. It is a gracious invocation where the human heart pleads with the divine heart. When a blessing is invoked, a window opens in eternal time ~ John O'Donohue (art;elena.ray)
When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, without pain... There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it. ~Rumi
Neolithic Stone Female "Idol," 2500 BC - 1900 BC, Anatolian, Syrian | The simple and uniform shapes make this difficult to classify: figures with a comparable structure can be found in the Near East from Neolithic times at least up until the Iron Age. This "idol" resembles a relief or a stele, more than a true statue in the round, and displays summary features for the anatomical rendering of the face and arms, whereas the lower part of the body shows no details whatsoever.
