Source Energy that creates galaxies, pours the seas into existence, carves the Grand Canyon with its wind or shapes the African tip from Cape Agulhas to the Cape of Good Hope does not care what you have been or could be. It is of no debate if you are an artist, a politician or a garbage man. The Divine does not wait for you to write a symphony or cure cancer or even ponder if you’ll stop drinking or go to therapy or walk away from that job. The Energy that has spun the Universe into existence cares only that you know who you are. A masterpiece, no less extraordinary or powerful than Niagra herself. That you came from love, are love and will return to love. Such infinite intelligence cares only that you recognize the noble fire that burns in your veins and in all life that you see. It waits in the deepest quiet for you to feel its presence in all that surrounds you. It speaks endlessly to you, knowing that you have an intuitive ear within you to hear its loving call. For everything, all of it, even the body you walk around in was made for you. Specifically for you. What you do with this gift is up to you and only you. There is no panel of judges or Greek chorus lamenting your choices. There’s just love for you. That’s it. Love.
There is an eternal flame burning steadily in the heart of your being that joyfully wants you to walk out that front door. Regardless of your personal story or what you think is your state of happiness or lack of it. Regardless of your circumstances: poor, rich, abused, old, privileged, employed, unemployed, alone or in a full house. At the heart of you is a fire that is never diminished. Let go of everything you think you know about yourself or your history or what potential you think is or isn’t in your future. Challenge the validity of all you think lessens or blocks you. Let go and step forward. You are a child of the Universe, your time is now and that awareness is all the Energy that creates galaxies and pours seas into life is hungry for. Your awakening.

Very beautiful pictures!
I have to say my friend that the one on the left is an ode to you. Definitely inspired by your work.
I’m flattered… Thank you so much, Noelle, so much…
Truly, I’m not trying to flatter. I’ve learned a lot about atmosphere/contrast and subject from looking at your work. There is always something mysterious or stark or poignant about your photographs. Was so delighted when you started posting again.
Absolutely magnificent, Noelle. Profoundly moving. “It waits in the deepest quiet for you to feel its presence in all that surrounds you.” I relate deeply to this. Thank you.
Me, too, my friend. Me, too!
Had a visceral reaction to this the first read and have been practicing with it, espcially the last paragraph, hoping it soaks in. Tonight from a hammock near a fire at sunset. It was very nice. Thanks so much Noelle for the exchange.
Clearly you read more than this piece, so truly thank you for the visit. Love deeply felt does have a way of sinking into our bellies like liquid Fire. And speaking of fire….A hammock by a fire at sunset, now that just sunk deep into my core, too. I shall have to accept the quiet of blue Christmas lights, against an inky black, Colorado night sky. Come to think of it, not a bad second choice. Blessings, my friend
