Joy Divine Faith

Joy Divine Faith Bird

It was cold winters morning. I went for a walk in nature. The sky was grey, usual for the winter. Suddenly I saw a little bird and stopped, just to look at a little creature. Well, it stopped and also looked at me. Actually a little bird started at me, it wasn’t afraid and it came closer, sat on a fence, next to me. I stretched my arm towards the bird, it didn’t fly away, I was nearly touching the bird. Little creature started pulling my finger, I thought it was hungry. I asked him; are you hungry? It just looked at me, with the fearless look and flew couple of meters away. The bird found really big worm and pecked a worm few times, bird didn’t eat the worm. Little creature flew back to me, stood buy my side and looked at me for quite some time. Well, I thought, the bird wasn’t hungry and it likes me. People started passing by and each time when people pass by, my little friend flies away and when people are gone, it comes back. After some time the bird flew away and ate the worm, that it found earlier. I thought that the bird is not coming back so, I went and sat on the bench. After few minutes my little friend came back, sat next to me, maybe few centimetres away from my body, the bird looked at me and started singing, this lasted for few minutes… I looked at this magnificent creature and didn’t believe that this is really happening. Wild bird just sang me a song 🙂 I walked back home in awe…When I came back home, looked at the calendar and it was 14 of February, Valentines day…Wow, that must be a coincidence 🙂

Then I googled little birds, so I could find out what kind of bird it was, looked at many photos and found out that it was robin. I also googled what is the spiritual meaning of the robin? Few meanings of the robin is joy, faith, trust…

After some time I heard one Zen story. Little bird says to a man, why can’t you trust God, Source? Look at me I trust Source and Source provides me food, shelter I am joyous and I fly and sing all day. Be more like me, be joyous.

I think my encounter with little bird was a manifestation of that short Zen story.

I know it’s not easy to trust or have faith, because we have been conditioned not to have faith and believe in lack and scarcity. When you look at lack and scarcity you can clearly see that it is artificially created and there are so many documentaries, videos and articles which prove that lack is artificial. Universe, Source, God… no matter how you want to call Thatness, it is always looking after you, it talks to you…

Are you willing to listen?

Are you willing to be still?

Are you willing to be joyous?

Are you grateful?

If you love nature, you love life, yours and others…life is divine…divine talks to you…listen…

Purple magic

mome

Have you ever asked yourself a question, what magic is?

What magic means to you?
One would say magic is something very exotic, foreign and far away from us.
One day I have decided to do an experiment I have set an intention to see magic in my life. The experiment would last 24 hours. So here it goes, in that 24 hours I want to manifest a purple feather and magic. In the first few minutes of the experiment I have opened my facebook and I saw a picture of a cat, well cats are magical to me and the next thing, cats name is Theodora which means, a gift from god. Very strange coincidence…
Very interesting beginning. After few minutes I see a purple feather on my computer screen, I didn’t google purple feather. Then I thought to my self well, seeing a purple feather on computer screen it is not a big deal, I want to see real feather. Few minutes later falcon passes my window, which is pretty magical.
How do I see a purple feather, that seemed so impossible, it must be on some exotic bird and where do I get that exotic bird in Europe, mission impossible. Next day I go for a walk in the park and take photos. There are lots of birds around, and I totally forgot experiment about magic and purple feather. I look at a pigeon it looks so awesome, I look at it and it seems so magical, shiny. Feathers shine in the sunlight and it changes colour from green to purple…Wait the minute purple, boom there you go, purple feather and magic. Who would thought that grey pigeon is colourful and magic, but it is…

Pigeon

I walk further and see more pigeons, loads of them and there is one absolutely white…wow there is a white dove between pigeons.
That is very special…Dove 2

Holy spirit itself decided to show up and take a stroll in the park. Yes, this happened in 24 hours it started with gift from god and continued into manifestation of holy spirit itself.

Transience Wabi-Sabi

First thing that comes in mind thinking about transience,Buddhist monks in their perfect ochre robes making a colourful sand mandala. It takes long time to make it, soon after it is made it is destroyed. Creation and destruction…Sand mandalas are representation of transient material life.

Creation and destruction of mandala is highly ceremonial.

I like to create my ‘sand’ mandalas not really from sand. One was created out of sea shells, very tiny sea shells…nobody can put a price tag on creation like that and now it only ‘exists‘ as photo image…

One day I have left message in the sand made of sea rocks. Of course the message no longer exist in material form, it was washed away by sea waves, hopefully somebody got the message…

Sea also makes wonderful drawings. Pictures are so perfect…

Drawings disappear after few hours. Sea water washes pictures away…

The next day new pictures are created…different pictures.

Everything is in constant change, well if things would stay the same that would be boring.

There is this saying; ‘The more things change the more they stay the same.’ Constant and change are different sides of the same coin.

Some people say, ‘oh those lifetimes in Lemuria and Atlantis were so much nicer better and now life is so grey’. Remember the lives in Egypt they were so cool I was trying to grasp on those moments, those lifetimes although they slipped through my fingers like sand…

Yes, that might be true. As they say, ‘all good things come to the end’, yeah, but they forgot to say that bad things come to the end too.

My sea shells turn into sand and maybe one day somebody is going to make colourful sand mandala out of that sand.

Make your own own ‘sand’ mandala every day, every moment, choose colours and ingredients that are best for you and makes you joyful. Enjoy things while they last and don’t be afraid to let go when it is time to do so…
