The Lazy Dames
It's been awhile, too long really, since I've taken a picture that turned me on.
So it was a pleasant result when this simple rose photo came out as nice as it did.
I particularly like the woodgrain effect of the wet lattice and the tail light reflections on the wet pavement in contrast to the flashlit rose. Yes the flashfired here and to good effect. The Casio EX-Z750 came through again for me.
This is Cathy and Michelle selfshot with the Canon Powershot Pro90
just fooling around. Love that articulating LCD so you can see yourself.
I've been collecting affirmations lately. Here are a few:
As I become more and more aware of myself
as an eternal consciousness,
I become more peaceful and at ease with all that happens
in my life. Physical reality reflects this peace back to me.
I boldly face the new challenges in life that awakening and becoming
aware of who I really am brings.
Today I turn within and allow the spiritual wisdom
that I am to flow into everything I say and do.
I already am everything I will ever need.
If old memories rise to the surface, I investigate the emotional content in a balanced way, and move deeper into the emotion and through it, finding my eternal self again, and making peace with the old memory.
I am free of the past and the future. The moment I live in is now,
with no history affecting my choices in the present.
I have unlimited resources of abundance, love, and knowledge.
I am wealthy on all levels, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
I am a lovable person who is loved by others. I am appreciated by others.
I love others no matter how they act, or what their faults are.
Even if I don't want to be around their personality, I love them as the eternal being that they truly are.
I overlook the shortcomings of others. I have no judgement.
I give freely and effortlessly to the universe, for that same energy of love and
abundance provides for all my needs.
I truly believe and know my good, and I choose to embody that feeling right here, right now!
I am humble, because no matter how awake I become, I realize that the human condition is a lifelong limitation and I cannot be perfect all the time.
I am gentle and nurturing to myself. I say only kind things to myself. I am my own best friend.
I am a radiant source of love on the Earth for others, rather than needing others to be a source of love for me.
I am the source of love.
There are deeper meanings under all events in life that I may never understand. I accept these events and experiences even though I don't understand why they are happening.
I remember who I am. I am a part of the vast scheme of all that is, and as such I allow the divinity that I am to be present in every moment.
I am doing exactly what I need to be doing at this time.
I am mature, wise, and intelligent. Any thoughts I have to the contrary are only illusory fears.
If I fight with another I'm really fighting with myself because we are both God.
I am free, even in the midst of limitation within the illusions of life.
I am willing to ask for help. I recognize when I need help.
I trust my inner wisdom. I trust the information I get from my deeper resources and intuition.
I am a living prayer. I am always focusing on the highest and best as already part of my life right now.
Everyone is Buddha sent to teach me. The teacher is everywhere. Life is the guru.
I love and appreciate myself. I overlook my shortcomings and love myself anyway.
The intelligence of Spirit expresses through me as right decision and right action.
I accept the free flow of life in all my affairs. I live life to the fullest.
Self hate is an illusion. Hate of others is also an illusion.
I go deeper than illusion and find the truth of who I really am.
Hate disappears in this, even self hate.
