Sunday Morning: Of Souls & Water…

Beautiful.  Mesmerizing on the way to hypnotic.  Calming with a soothing cadence.  And, Spiritual for believers and non-believers.

Yes.  I loved this.

Good Sunday Morning…

Of Souls + Water: The Mother

I feel like a speck sitting there enveloped by this landscape.  By the walls. They swallow you up in their beauty. In their vastness – There’s a comfort in that. It feels like I’m experiencing the universe.

I still have dreams. Dreams are being able to stay in the flow of life. To be able to move through the challenges that will always be thrown at us. Not to shut down. To stay open to possibilities.  Dreams are being able to nurture life and the unfolding of life without hindering, controlling or exploiting.

It’s amazing to bring a life into this world. It’s scary, it’s joyful, it’s terrifying, it’s beautiful. It’s all of those things. I think we all have the mother inside of us. I think it’s an energy more than an entity. And it has to do with the ability to love and nurture, protect – life as a whole in all of its forms.

When I was a little girl. I used to try to contemplate the meaning of life and i would stay awake half the night thinking about infinity – and the universe – and what is it – and how can it go on for ever and ever and what’s beyond it. And I would just become so enraptured – literally enraptured with that idea  — And I could never come up with a meaning or an answer – it would just make me feel very very tiny – and there was a comfort in that – I can’t explain why.

One of the questions that I’ve asked myself – that I’m trying to find the answer to – What is death? What is the meaning of life? Why are we here? Why is this all here? I’m apprehensive and I’m curious. And it’s mysterious. I don’t know what it’s going to be – and I won’t find out until I’m there. I don’t think we can understand it. It puts me in touch with the mystery of life and death. And I don’t feel there are answers to everything in our lifetime. And there don’t have to be.

It’s just wonderful to be in a mystery.

  1. magnificent…the entire effect is almost hypnotic – her hands at the outset, the music, the stillness of the water against the enormity of the rocks (the striations almost undulate too) – and her words follow the imagery. wow…happy sunday..


  2. Yes Mimi. I completely agree. (In full disclosure, I had to look up “striations” – (“striation”) stria: any of a number of tiny parallel grooves such as: the scratches left by a glacier on rocks or the streaks or ridges.. – – you’re schooling me at 5:15am on a Sunday morning) 🙂


  3. Truly magical……a beautiful way to begin my Sunday morning…….thank you!


  4. Ahhh, this touched my soul on many levels. I LOVE how comfortable this woman seems in her skin–she just emanates peace and wisdom. I love the juxtaposition between her hands and the rocks–both so craggy. I love the immutability of the rocks–they seem to say “We have endured much, yet we have survived and are more beautiful for the journey.”. So much to ponder on a quiet Sunday morning. Thank you….
