Inspire Means In Spirit

To be inspired is to be "breathed into" or "communicated by divine or supernatural power" (Online Etymology Dictionary).  Although I don't have the direct reference for the the title of this blog, I know I found it online as well while searching for meaning and direction of thoughts and songwriting.  Logically it stands to reason, as well.  Within this vessel called a body is the eternal soul and a living spirit.  If you have learned discernment for the thoughts that run through, spirit or divine communication is happening.  It's always a quiet voice.  On this occasion it spoke with gentle prodding to try darker images.  Below is the result.  I used techniques learned from reading the photography books by Bryan Peterson.   One such skill is to take the light reading to the side of the sun and ignore the camera's meter after you reposition.  I set the speed on 250 to freeze action, the aperature was f32 so that I could stay at the low ISO 200.  The low ISO and f32 allowed for the depth in color.  With my finger freezing the focus just to the side of the sun I moved slightly to the right pushing the shutter down as the sun came into view while also closing my eye.  When you shoot into the sun it is important to protect your vision by squinting and/ or closing your eye when the sun comes in view of the lens.  Note the sacred geometry in the snowflakes to the right.  You might think it is the sunbeam, and they might be. I cropped the first image to show that the typical green dots from a sunbeam on the left.  The last image was cropped to show the rainbow around two of the geometric shapes and one that is completely a rainbow of light. I hope this inspires your awe and compassion as you journey along life's trails.

This image has a better composition.  It's like looking down a rabbit hole of light.

The new order of light.  Everything's going to turn out alright.  Choose the light.
