Your task is not to seek love, but to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.  Rumi

Self-worth comes from one thing - thinking that you are worthy.

So many shades wonderful shades of blue in the first image. As I sit typing this the wind and rain is howling outside my window, but a sunny day on Sunday I believe. Hope you have a good weekend Sylvia.

I just love your boat picture : it is so peaceful... And the reflection of the sunlight on the water is very impressive. The sunset is so beautiful !

You really are having gorgeous weather. Wish I could live your "worth" quote. Between the nuns always fussing and nothing being good enough and my parents asking why I couldn't be a good as my sister, I sometimes have trouble with the self worth thing. I know better in my head, but in my heart it still aches sometimes. I was just one of those ones who marched to her own drummer, was carefree, and wanted to enjoy life. Don't guess that is so bad after all. genie

When we feel worthy, one receives real wealth and abundance which is the vitality in Life and Living.

Seeking barriers is often a part of the first stage of waking up. A person senses there are problems in need of being fixed. With every barrier or wall that is taken down, a sense of openness and love is achieved.

However, when one lives more in the presence of love than in the confines of barriers... the landscape flips or shifts. One no longer seeks barriers or problems. One Now becomes the solution by living in a state or place of love. From this state they then may sense a block or a barrier without having to look for it as it cycles through. One then gives each moment the just attention that all things deserve. By embracing the block, it is then reabsorbed back into love and one fluently moves about until the next tension reveals its self. The tension point is no longer considered a problem... but an opportunity to bring something forgotten or forsaken back into re-membrance.

Beautiful photos, Sylvia - the various blue hues in that first one are exquisite. And your Skywatch mosaic below is superb, especially that one in the upper-left. Have a great weekend, unfortunately I have to work but I hope to find time for a hike to see the trees tomorrow.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
