Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

DSC02733The world is a looking glass and gives
back to every man the reflection of his
own face.  Frown at it and it will in turn
look sourly upon you, laugh at it and
with it, and it is a jolly, kind companion.

~William Thackery~

It’s important to be heroic, ambitious, productive,
efficient, creative, and progressive, but these
qualities don’t necessarily nurture the soul.  The
soul has different concerns, of equal value:
downtime for reflection, conversation and
reverie; beauty that’s captivating and pleasuring;
relatedness to the environs and to people;
and any animal’s rhythm of rest and activity.

~Thomas Moore~


Emotion arises at the place where mind
and body meet.  It is the body’s reaction
to your mind – or you might say, a
reflection of your mind in your body.

~Eckhart Tolle~

DSC03879Silence is a great teacher, and to learn
its lessons you must pay attention to it.
There is no substitute for creative inspiration,
knowledge, and stability that come from
knowing how to contact your core of inner
silence.  The great Sufi poet, Rumi, wrote,
‘Only let the moving waters calm down,
and the sun and moon will be reflected
on the surface of your being’.

~Deepak Chopra~

DSC05113 Your surroundings, home, personal care,
pets, clothing, body are all reflections of
how you see and express yourself.
Do these reflect your true self?

~Christiane Northrup~

      I can understand why your paintings are selling – they are beautiful. In this one I see the beginnings of some abstract work – maybe for the TV room wall?

  2. I love that painting! I am inspired! Let Carol know she has another fan!
    Love you SE
