TBT – Stick Your Neck Out

07.17.15DesertTortoise

On this Throwback Thursday, I chose an image of this desert tortoise.

For the simple reason that she is not afraid to stick her neck out. She has to in order to survive.

It’s the same for human beings. If we stay inside our safe shells, there is no adventure, no real joy, no opening up of our sensory channels.

Follow your passions. Act on your ideas. The world needs your positive energy now in whatever expression you choose to share with the rest of us. We are all connected.

Close your eyes. Think of what you want. Make it into a scene. Evoke all your senses. Focus on details.

You attract what you love, hate or fear. Focus on love.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

Before I get into today’s post and photo, I’d like to ask all of my readers to send some extra special love and light to the victims and families of today’s high school shooting in Ohio.  I can only imagine how much they need our collective good thoughts and prayers. There’s one student dead and four wounded.  The shooter is in custody. I just don’t understand this kind of behavior or what motivates someone to take anothers life.  All relationships are holy ground. Maybe this will be the year, 2012, when we all get it . . . when we all can understand that each of us is an individual expression of one Universal Mind and what we do to another, we do to ourselves.  What we do to ourselves, we do to another.  I believe it works both ways.

OK, don’t let the title fool ‘ya.  This photo is one that I’ve always wanted to stop and photograph but usually there are a zillion cars behind me and it’s too hard to pull over.  So this morning when I saw no cars, I thought “now’s my chance.”

It’s a gate that really leads to nowhere (which could translate to now here, right?)  There was supposed to be a subdivision built there but it hasn’t materialized.  I just like the look of the gates with the Catalina mountains in the background.

Namaste.
