Focusing on the breath, learning to sense our connection with Earth and sky, and strengthening our physical body as a temple in which the spirit can manifest gives us the foundation for a spiritual practice.
A spiritual practice is a way of accessing the divine creativity that exists inside each one of us.
It is a process of finding our own strength and balance, of celebrating, with sound and silence, the essence of who we are. To realize ourselves as authentic spiritual beings takes a lot of physical and emotional stamina. We must be willing to face our fears and doubts. We must work to transform any feelings of separation we may hold. We must overcome any laziness or irresponsibility that is still with us. Beneath each of these states lies enormous reservoirs of love, power and authenticity, and the ability to deeply and honestly respond to life.
The word ''inspire'' means to breathe. To breath in, inspiration - to fill with spirit.
To inspire is to be filled with breath. When we breathe deeply we are inspired, filled with the creative energy of life.
- from the book by Diane Mariechild "The Inner Dance".

The Butterfly Messenger

Two days ago while I was on my walk through the canyon, I encountered this beautiful dead butterfly with a broken wing. I was contemplating its journey of transformation, experience of fullness of being, and moving beyond, back to the source. I was wondering what message it brings. I placed it in a safe place, and I offered it for the tree. This particular tree is symbolizing for me a gate between realities. Passing through it I always imagine leaving behind the physical world of form, and entering into a truly magickal garden of Spirit.
In the next day after my return I realized that around the same time one of the greatest visionary masters Robert Venosa ascended to the higher realms, and merged with his creations..

He is such a great example to follow, living up to the true creative potentials, bringing down this incredible visions, and the dimensional portals. He touched the lives of many with the light of his inspiration. And this light never burns out.
