Images and words of Love, Beauty, and Darkness...in the flesh, and in my mind...

Just remember, Love & Beauty can be Dark...and as deep as still waters. Where there is light, there are shadows...and vica-versa. All things are in the eye of the beholder...perceptions...

I am fascinated with the spiritual realm and the dilemma of reconciling the Light/Dark within us. Much of my writing expresses my beliefs and or desires in this area.

What types of things seem to be recurring themes for me: beauty, trees, cosmos, nature, water, sunset/sunrise, clouds, birds, spiders, serpents, dark goddesses, warrior women, D/s, agony, anguish, fear, desire, doom, darkness, nihilism, pathways, doorways, archways, loneliness, old houses, decay, desolation, death, escape, freedom, innocence, redemption, magic, fantasy...to name a few.

Hope you enjoy what is here. :)

Quote reblogged from To a dusty shelf we aspire with 536 notes

Forget the suffering
You caused others.
Forget the suffering
Others caused you.
The waters run and run,
Springs sparkle and are done,
You walk the earth you are forgetting.

Sometimes you hear a distant refrain.
What does it mean, you ask, who is singing?
A childlike sun grows warm.
A grandson and a great-grandson are born.
You are led by the hand once again.

The names of the rivers remain with you.
How endless those rivers seem!
Your fields lie fallow,
The city towers are not as they were.
You stand at the threshold mute.

— Czeslaw Milosz, “Forget” (via heteroglossia)

Drunk on Love ~ 

Be drunk on love, because love is all that exists;Without love, no one has the right to enter His house.They ask, “What is love?” Reply: “Giving up your self-will.” He who hasn’t given up his will isn’’t chosen. The lover’’s an emperor, the two worlds are at his feet: Does an emperor notice what is thrown in his path? It is Love and the Lover that live eternally. –Don’t lend your heart to anything else; all else is borrowed. How long will you go on and on embracing a corpse? Embrace the soul that is embraced by nothing else. - Jalal-ud-Din Rumi (Translated by Andrew Harvey from A Year of Rumi)

It is Love and the Lover that live eternally. –
Don’t lend your heart to anything else; all else is borrowed.

"Seeing the divinity within ourselves enables us to see it in another. To approach our fellow man as less than divine is to deny the Source of his being. He is an arrow sent forth from the hand of the Infinite, straight and true upon its course. The ancient Norsemen shot flaming arrows into mist to guide their boats safely into the unknown. In the same way we have been sent like flaming arrows to explore the mysteries of the Infinite’s Being. All flaming arrows are of equal value to the navigator; some tell him where it is clear to go and others showing where it is not. In the same way within the mystery of the Infinite’s Being, all are equal. There is much value in mirroring to the Infinite, through the experience of a life, that which It is not so It might fully understand that which It is."
