a love letter…

Love-letter

A real love letter is made of insight, understanding, and compassion. Otherwise it’s not a love letter. A true love letter can produce a transformation in the other person, and therefore in the world.

in this moment…

Quote

moment

When we let go of our battles and open our heart to things as they are, then we come to rest in the present moment. This is the beginning and the end of spiritual practice. Only in this moment can we discover that which is timeless. Only here can we find the love that we seek. Love in the past is simply memory, and love in the future is fantasy. Only in the reality of the present can we love, can we awaken, can we find peace and understanding and connection with ourselves and the world.

phi spiral

The phi spiral in one direction will often be seen counterbalanced with another one in the opposite direction – called the Phi Double Spiral.

This double spiral creates natural boundaries. For example, it matches up perfectly with the human eye as you can see in this picture. The pupil appears to be colored in with green and the iris appears to be outlined, but that’s actually the natural overlapping of the lines from the phi double spiral.
