Focus


The more clearly we can focus our attention
on the wonders and realities
of the Universe about us

I am putting my focus on wonder
and breathing peace into every cell
of my being.

At this moment I am focusing on breathing in the beauty of your photographs. Wow! One Buddhist writer claims that breathing in bliss/joy and warmth into every cell produces healing. Your post reminded me of his writings. I can't recall his name, but the book is "Boundless Healing".

Meri these images and colors are the perfect inspiration to focus on beauty and instill calm. Thank you.

Meri said...

Naquillity - Honing your photographic and processing skills and writing more poetry is a worthy endeavor. Keep us posted!

Jennifer - for some reason, I don't seem to have your email. I've missed posts from your sunroom and hope you'll get back to it when the time is right.

What beautiful peonies and such thoughtful words. Each day is certainly a gift and you've shared some special thoughts with us. Thank you...

These images are stunning. Stunning.

I need to focus on my husband. For the past few weeks he has really gotten the shaft with regard to my attention.

These are wonderful photographs,

I have 'unfollowed' you again. This doesn't mean that I don't like your site, I shall visit as often as I can and leave a comment. Following non-followers makes life too complicated. I like an easy life. Sorry.

Thanks, Joshi. I think I was able to respond to each of the rest of you by email, but I appreciate the comments and the time you spent on writing me and telling me your thoughts.
