Rainbow Within

“Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life.
The evening beam that smiles the clouds away,
and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.”
Lord Byron

Rainbow Obsidian: brings light and love to one’s life. Allows for the spiritual side in one’s nature to be recognized. Known as the “stone of pleasure”, it can bring enjoyment and gratification to one’s life. It is also used for “gazing” especially in matters of love, relationship and the development of one’s etheric and physical bodies.

Amethyst Flowering

“Love does not dominate; it cultivates.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Amethyst Flowers are buried deep within a layer of basalt. They are carefully and tediously worked with small hand instruments until the basalt and other matrix minerals are removed, exposing the beautiful and awe inspiring Amethyst Flower. The Amethyst Flower is believed to be a stone of love and healing… it can also help to bring many blessings to us all. It is a stone for Indigo Children, of today and tomorrow.

More thoughts on Love by Kahlil Gibran

When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams
as the north wind lays waste the garden.

For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you.
Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.

Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.
He threshes you to make you naked.
He sifts you to free you from your husks.
He grinds you to whiteness.
He kneads you until you are pliant;
And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God’s sacred feast.

All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life’s heart.

But if in your fear you would seek only love’s peace and love’s pleasure,
Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love’s threshing-floor,
Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.

When you love you should not say, “God is in my heart,” but rather, “I am in the heart of God.”
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

May we all let our love grow to become a rose!

“Give up defining yourself –
to yourself or to others.
You won’t die.
You will come to life.
And don’t be concerned
with how others define you.
When they define you,
they are limiting themselves,
so it’s their problem.
Whenever you interact with people,
don’t be there primarily as a function or a role,
but as the field of conscious Presence.
You can only lose something that you have,
but you cannot lose something that you are.”
Eckhart Tolle

Gorge-ous Light Shine

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Marianne Williamson

Perpetual Prayer

“You can study God through everything and
everyone in the universe,
because God is not confined in a
Mosque, Synagogue, or Church.
But if you are still in need of knowing
where exactly His abode is,
there is only one place to look for Him:
In the heart of a true lover.”

Shamsi Tabrizi
(the spiritual instructor of Rumi)

Spectacular Flight

“Every individual has to give himself what he needs to grow. Believe in your dreams. Have faith & hope in what you wanted in your life. In the end, have patience & keep loving yourself & your life every single moment. Once, you will see the manifestation of your desires, then you will understand how the law of universe works. Try this… It is simple to apply & be sure that you don’t keep any sort of doubts in your mind because it hampers the whole process.”
