“To these sentient beings I shall reveal
This sutra called Sublime Golden Light,
Which rids one of every harmful misdeed
And expounds upon the profound.”


Note: I have revised my haiku to use the phrase “golden light” after researching the sutra called Sublime Golden Light. Yellow, although beautiful, is not a healing color.

  11. Good morning, Noelle! You've found another intensely beautiful photo to grace our day. I like the phrase "unfolds compassionately" combined with the idea of healing. The two are inextricably linked.

  12. wow...that hot, vibrant mandala...stunning and perfect Haiku.


  13. you have ignited a perfect memory...
    once, sitting in wonder of the beauty of an open hibiscus flower, i "fell into the center". in one moment all experience of self vanished as i became the essence of this beauty.
    the next, i was above, in the vast sky looking down. what i saw was a young girl sitting on the earth crossed legged. i saw "me" shoulders, the top of my head, my hands holding the flower and from this universal perspective i was filled, so filled with profound love... that i expanded in a way that i can hardly begin to describe.
    there is more to this experience that graced me at the age of 16. let's just say from that vantage point, there is nothing but divine love. there is the perfect wisdom that we are all

    thank you for your words and image returning me to this sacred memory.

  14. Oh Rebecca! I didn't see your comment until just now. It is so beautiful. What an amazing memory. That you were able to experience that level of expanded consciousness at 16 is such a gift of grace and compassion, a wholeness of Self that comes to very few. I am glad that this image could remind you of that moment. Tomorrow is John Lennon's 70th birthday. I believe that he would have deeply appreciated your experience and your memory of it. I certainly do. Thank you!

  15. Thank you for bringing the richness of your image and haiku before our eyes and hearts!

    I would also like to add thanks for your observations of my collage, very interesting! I like to link with Jamie Ridler's Full Moon Dreamboard Group. My vision board collage is intuitively assembled from random images that 'speak to me'. I'm always amazed at what the completed artwork reveals!

  16. I like the idea of this blossom being a mandala!

  17. the beautiful brilliance of vibrant red.. it is overpowering all the more as a mandela... may the circle be unbroken...
