emergence of consciousnes

This is my May´s Photo-Heart Connection

May has been a busy -and somehow chaotic- month. It has taught me some hard lessons that surely will lead me to make some important decisions about the way I am living. It has given me a new -and keen- perception of some important things, and for that I am happy and grateful, but most of the days I felt exhausted and overwhelmed. This made me think that I had been neglecting my inner work... or that I thought, till I found a group of photos of this plant and its flowers

I had forgotten it
till I went through my files a week ago or so, and the mauve and green tones caught my eye. And then I remembered: I captured them along a cloudy afternoon.  I wanted to take a break from my work and recharge my batteries, so I went to the park next to my house,  and these beauties were blooming gracefully next to the fountain

I stayed there for a long time. I observed the spherical umbels on single stalks which I have seen so many times but always manage to amaze me again

I stayed there and breathed, and danced around the flowers the same as the bees, fascinated, feeling blessed, thrilled. 
The closed buds contrasted sharply with the showy flower heads, in wide range of sizes and shades of blue, purple, white and yellow. And I took one photo and another. But what I liked best was the way that the star-shaped flowers were opening themselves up to the world

After the walk I felt much more relaxed, but I was not aware of having proceeded with my inner work. That´s why when I discovered the photos of the Alliums I realized that I have reached a decisive stage in my journey because I have started to incorporate my inner work into my everyday life sometimes without even noticing it

I have dreamt of developing my practice easily, smoothly, elegantly many times. But I thought this wouldn´t be that effortless. Indeed, I thought this could be a bit solemn, I expected the observance of some formality. I didn´t expect my practice to be so spontaneous, unaffected, so simple and uncomplicated

But I have found out that consciousness can develop at ease just as life does, without making great fuss, silently, through the extraordinary in the ordinary

This is so interesting. First, I love your photo (photos, really...I snooped around your site a bit!) But what you've expressed here is wonderful. I have spent a lot of time "willing" change, having decided in advance what my end result "should" be. It's only in the last several years that I have sought to quiet my mind...my "shoulds" in life...and listen for the spirit. Listen to the inner voice and allow myself to be guided differently. I love how you've expressed the process that you are living. Thanks!

Kinda like 'those' folks who work diligently, almost quietly...unnoticed for years. And suddenly they emerge as 'an overnight success.'

Well said...and you photo illustrates it beautifully!

You found some great personal insights this month. I think slowing down, listening to your surroundings is a great way to notice something for your camera and for your being. That photo says "bursting forth" to me. perfect.

What a wonderful discovery. I can feel the quiet joy to discover that your inner work doesn't have to be hard and solemn. It can be light and filled with gratitude for the moment. Amazing Photo-Heart Connection this month!

So often you remind me about things which are so important, so often you remind me my inner self. THANK YOU!
