|First snow of 2012 - oh so peaceful!|
This picture is of the big rock outside my living room window. There is a small japanese lantern in front of it on the right. It's a very peaceful sight, and one that I've thoroughly enjoyed for the last two days. The peace and quiet of the snow has given me inspiration to create. The following quote was instrumental in bringing me to a place of peace, where creativity could flow:
If you seek peace and love first, if you learn to become mindfully present, you'll find that good things seem to be attracted to you without your even having to specify them. When you think about using the power of your mind in daily life, remember that peace is the most important goal, because thoughts of peace open the heart to love, and then close the mind to fear. Peace and love are the frame of reference through which we discover the mind's true power.
