"A light came and kindled a flame in the depth of my soul. 

A Light so radiant that the sun orbits around it like a butterfly."

♡ WELCOME ♡

Gaia, the beautiful, rose up,
Broad blossomed, she that is the steadfast base
Of all things. And fair Gaia first bore
The starry Heaven, equal to herself,
To cover her on all sides and to be
A home forever for the blessed Gods

Hesiod

*¨*•.¸¸GARDEN SONG•*¨*•.¸¸

We are the children of creation
Drawn out of the night
To be the stewards of the garden
and keepers of the light
Let us sing the garden fruitful
and chant the water bright
Tune the air to clarity
and dance throughout the light
May we and our descendents
walk in beauty all of our lives

~Tai~

"Throughout the journey to Paradise there will always be time for rest and spirit play; and in the career of light and life there is always time for worship and new achievement."

~ Urantia Book ~

A work of art is a mist carved into an image."

This is the prayer of each:
You are the source of my life.
You separate essence from mud.
You honor my soul.
You bring rivers from the
mountain springs.
You brighten my eyes.
The wine you offer
takes me out of myself
into the self we share.
Doing that is religion.


Rumi
