Stopping to smell the flowers…

These days I am going through some “stormy weather”
experiences,shaking up my core
undoubtedly designed to shed off some layers
…and reveal a more brilliant me.. 🙂
Today as I got my lunch at a neighbor sandwich stand
and appreciated the Jasmine flowers ,
the owner had brought from her garden
she slipped them into a paper bag adjoining my sandwich
to brighten up my day..
As they filled up my shop
with a fragrance of Grace,
I pondered upon the small folds
of humble and simple Beauty
just laying there within our daily life experiences
waiting for us to notice..
With all of life`s difficulties,
where do we choose to focus our attention
and energies?
Shall we choose to embrace
the messages of light*
even and more so
when they seem so scarcely
in sight…?

“..It is not the image you would see,nor the sound you would hear,
but rather an image you would see though you close your eyes,
and a song you hear though you close your ears…
Beauty is life when life unveils her holy face
but you are life
and you are the veil..”
Khalil Gibran
