Inspired by Awake

Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes ~ Carl Gustav Jung.

Every time I see some­ones art, the gift of nature’s beauty or a sense of spirit I’m grate­ful, I’m inspired! With some, the inspi­ra­tion is so pow­er­ful I have to weave some beads and cre­ate a lit­tle piece of art myself! It’s a thrilling ride, a color fes­ti­val and I don’t want to go home.

Again it’s time to share a pow­er­ful gift…Awake! Thoughts and visu­als pro­vided me to cre­ate another visual expe­ri­ence that will delight the eyes and lift the spirits!

Look at a tree, a flower, a plant. Let your awareness rest upon it. How still they are, how deeply rooted in Being. Allow nature to teach you stillness ~ Eckhart Tolle

The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away ~ Pablo Picasso.
