Island Sanctuary (I’ve just finished this picture, so its time let it be seen)
This is a place to go to when you've been through a hard time. An island you can escape to, away from the pains, pleasures and pressures of life. Somewhere you can restore yourself in quiet reflection. A place where you can recoup your energies.
As you sit in the contemplation places around the island, you let the insights slip into your consciousness as you soak in the sunshine, silence and solitude. This is a place of purity where only clean, clear and comforting thoughts can come. This island is a sanctuary.
Thought for the week-
Chores of Enlightenment
While chatting with a friend she was telling me that she often gets insights and wisdom as she does her chores around the house. It's not that she was thinking in a positive manner but she was focusing on what she was doing. She was in the moment.
We came to the conclusion that because her mind was still, Soul had the opportunity to get a message through. Her mind was quiet as she concentrated on the ironing, or polishing or cooking. It gave Soul a chance to slip past the mind and impart some wisdom.
So doing the best we can, doing it with love and putting our attention on the task at hand can result in enlightenment.
