A Song to The Sophia; the Divine Feminine.
Video by Simon Teddy, “Sophia’s Song” written and sung by Simon Teddy, guitar arranged and played by Mark Alvin, selected photos by Reza Delghavi.
An enlightening look at the known Universe and our place and position within it. Humbling. Awesome (in its truest sense).
My brother sent this to us:
“In November at the central market in Valencia Spain, opera singers disguised as shopkeepers were selling produce at the various stalls. Suddenly, Verdi’s Il Travatore starts playing over the loudspeakers, and the shopkeepers burst into song. None of the shoppers had a clue. Sort of like candid camera but completely charming.” He added to this, “I wept.. Isn’t this who we are?”
This is an inter-faith Kirtan Group. I love their mix of instruments and the blend of their vocal harmonies.
This guitarist’s music is haunting and rich. I listen to it while I am working. There is power in it. You can download his album free here: http://www.dreamfullofzen.net/
I like this video. I have seen over and over in my life that our collective love is powerful, transformative and healing. Even we little mortals can bless!
An intricate oil painting, a lyrical instrumental and a written message, all centered around change and the courage necessary to successfully “lean into” life’s transitional periods.

To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.
~ Lewis B. Smedes
Most of us carry around anger, resentment, jealousy, or some other negative emotion directed to others. Unless dealt with, they will eventually start to broadly affect the quality of our lives and those around us.
Forgiveness is the act of unchaining yourself from thoughts and feelings that bind you to an offense, imagined or real, committed against you. It is a commitment to a process of growth and change. The first step is to recognize the value of forgiveness and the positive impact it can have in our lives. When we forgive, we release the control and power of the offending person and stop playing the victim. We no longer define our lives by how we have been hurt and instead can define ourselves by how we have grown.
Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were.
