“Drinking the energy of the universe
Breathing along with the Cosmos
With each breath
I am reborn
Into a brand new existence.”

“All differences in this world are of degree,

and not of kind,

because oneness is the secret of everything.”

“The thing is that this life is so precious and mysterious,

I don’t know what to say about it most of the time.

Words are like birds, passing through the trackless sky.

The dog barking, the sound of the purling stream,

the wind among the weeping willow trees:

how are these not right off the tongue of the Buddha?”


Lama Surya Das

  1. How did you sneak up on the little guy at the end to get such a good portrait?

    • These little guys live here, and have become like pets. They no longer run from us when we approach, and if they instinctively skitter away, they pause from a ‘safe’ place to watch us. I was watering pots, and this guy stood there for several minutes watching. I took a series of photos of him, believe it or not, but this was the best. I got three different sets of photos of these little lizards on Tuesday. They coexists peacefully with our cat, too. Just amazing.

  2. Wonderful words to go with your beautiful images. The little lizard made me smile. 🙂

  3. Love that silver-starred begonia and great quotes, esp. the one by Lama Surya Das, who incidentally just started following my blog! 😀 A coincidence or no? I notice you are following his blog…hmmm. 😉

    WOW, Thank you, I needed these inspirational words….and wonderful photos! Feeling down with all the rain here in Houston and worrying for all the people and animals! Drinking in the energy now…

    • Laurin, I’m so glad these words found their way to you when you needed them. My heart is with you, and I’ve been thinking of the many people and animals, trees and gardens affected by this weather system. I’m glad you’re OK and online 😉 The energy surrounds us and permeates us always. We can always raise its vibration by focusing on what is beautiful and infused with love; and by expecting the most benevolent outcome in all situations, despite their outward appearances. ❤ Safe travels, WG
