"Observe the wonders as they occur around you.
Don't claim them. Feel the artistry moving through

Anything you lose comes round in another form."

I loved this quote, somehow in my busyness I overlooked that Daily Love (which I subscribed to because I heard about it in YOUR blog, thank you ever so much!!)

It occurs to me that this is such a deep truth!! The Universe is NOT a vaccum and because we re created from the Universe we can not live in a vacucum so it makes perfect sense in an illogical irratiional, left-brain contradicting way that anything we give up to the world will come back to settle into the place where the old was set. If we never give we grow stagnant, and never have room in our heart for anything more beautiful or more splendid to take root. What glitters and seems so imkportant to us today because it has our notice will not be as bright and shiny tomorrow when the moment has passed. Sometimes we have to let go of what we think is so shiny while it's still sparkling so we can allow new light in to keep our hearts and spirits aglow.
There's only so much room in my mind, and I tend to try to hoard all that's shiny even after its lost its shimmer. I think that is fear of famine and poverty of the spirit.
Grieving hurts, no doubt about it, but to make room for the new, we incurr necessary lost. We are each of us a creature be-coming, evolving, an ongoing creation, it's a miraculous think to look back over a lifetime and see all the things that were taken away and made us re-newed and re-created again.

your posts always make me think so much, and push out the old and replace it with new ways of seeing, thinking, sensing, being!!!

big loves to you!
