Welcome to Moments Photography by Sandy's blog about photography and creativity. Always on the prowl for ways to keep learning, trying, inventing and shooting pictures. I will share my adventures, addictions, and antics below. Come visit often and share what you will. Live abundantly, giving, sharing and loving. . .
And so "they say" this and that but is it really true? There is true and there is truth. True is subjective. It can be true for you and not be true for someone else. For example I may say that beets are good. That is true for me. I do like them baked to a crisp and as chips. It was not true for my mother. She hated beets and so for her: beets are terrible was a true statement. However, truth is something that is universal. "Cause and effect" is a universal truth. In this physical realm there is a cause and because of it, there is an effect. Because you do something, anything, someone somewhere has the potential to judge you. And if they judge you, then talk about this to someone else, and it affects that person causing the effect of tarnishing your reputation, then the energy of cause and effect is moving. If you hear something enough times you might take it as truth but is it? Let's take dragons for a topic. They show up in stories from different cultures. Some stories have dragons guarding treasures of gold. Some depict dragons as spiritual guardians of the treasured human. I could speak this as a truth. Is it true? Is it not true. Is there any truth to dragons or would you have them just be legends?
In this composite Mom is taking a current picture in 2015 of the house she grew up in. Her Mom is sitting on the steps of the sepia toned house (a natural color, taken in the 1920's). I am 18 mo. on a trike in front of the same house as I knew it, with the screened in porch. The other picture of me on a bike was taken last week. Shhh, the sunflowers weren't in KS but from down the road in AL (you don't have to know that). The tree is still my favorite as it has a natural spiral of limbs taking you all the way up. I climbed that tree nearly every day when we spent a year in Kansas while my Dad was in Vietnam for the war. I didn't grow up in Kansas except for that year and few other years. My folks grew up in Kansas, met and married in this small town. But Dad went in the Army, so I grew up everywhere I went. I have spent more years in Alabama than anywhere, but if you aren't born in the South, they will tell you "you aren't from here." That's one perspective. I claim this place. I appreciate all places. Kansas will always have a piece of my heart too as I traveled there nearly every year and still have family there.
Expect us. We exist. There is truth to myths. It doesn't even take a belief system. It is dependent on frequency and energy. It may thrill you to know that all the myths and legends have some truth. Plato gives us the information to figure out that Atlantis existed but the common person thinks it is a myth. Thinking doesn't make it so or make it an untruth. Everything is energy. Match the energy and frequency and there you are. Your thoughts and feelings can shape your life.
Illuminate with love. Lighten up your life, your thoughts, your walk, your talk, your feelings and sense of being. Live righteously and love everyone. Love doesn't mean you approve of their choices. Love means that the feelings you have are to want the best for them. And why wouldn't you? We are all connected. The more love, the more each of us has the support needed to raise ourselves to a higher standard. Our mistakes are our opportunities for learning and improvement. Love the journey. And love your own self through all of this and love others through their struggles as well. Do this and you will build up around you an aura of light and love.
