Blossom

The dynamic essence of this entire Universe, tangible and intangible, seen and unseen - all of it perfectly designed. All in sync, in rhythm with God's boundless, visionary, Living Presence. We discover our pure childlike, guileless innocence that is alive with living faith. This love of God is natural and innate. The Soul of our Self is like a seed that is coded to bloom into the fullness of our glory. To know God and Live It's Joyful Presence. As this natural faith comes alive within us, we grow in the Light and become empowered in this Love. This divine imprint is written within us, encoded to blossom, sovereign and free, strong and gentle, playful and carefree. We become willing, unconcerned, defenseless, floating on the holy waters of God's Being - and the seed cracks open - and the blooming begins - it does - and then - in this sweetest bliss - we know - and we let it be, we let it all be

Living Interface

All the words being spoken and written in the name of Truth are as nothing compared to our own experienced Living interface with Reality. This direct connection with God gives us access to an inner strength and ability to stand balanced and free. We find our own two feet and we can think for ourself. We Live this Truth unbeholden to the collective mind-set and not fooled by the lies based on human constructs of separation, guilt, sin, and the incorrect, outmoded science of materialism. The Truth is; we have this divine Inner Authority, it is our real Identity. It is Here and has always been with us. We are meant to Live our Life in the fullness of this Self-Awareness we already are. This Light of God is our Real Identity. This entire Universe is the Living Mind of God. We are each a diverse and individual holy Spark of This Living One, this Presence of God. Living this holy Child we have found our Self to be - we are not seduced or coerced by the false premise of a mechanistic, godless, objective belief in a world of brith and death. We find our Real Identity and Live this blessed Way of the holy Child of God, unbound and alive. We dare to be this holy Child we are - knowing our entire world is within this Infinite Mind of God and It's Awareness. We dare to Live. The fog of deception lifts and we realize that God is the Only Life here - and there is no other Life we can be. Our world is quantum and synergistic, lifted up as we Live this Light of Truth. - then - how beautiful this Love - as we watch and see.



Holy Freedom 


 Life is the best teacher of all. Do you see how the collective, the herd mentality, is always going the wrong way? How wonderful that you didn't and won't follow the others, nor join the crowd. Many of us have this pure instinct I guess. Something told us not to get caught in the popular moods, the zeitgeist of deceit. There are other ways, and we are all very capable of finding them. We do it all by ourself - alone - but strong and never lonely. We feel at peace as we rest in our own care. It may be uncommon, but it's honest and loving to ourself. We find Something within us that is free from the ways of human organization and dogmatic deterrents pushed on us. We uncover this pure Light of our Self that is in harmony and rhythm with Life. How beautiful to let ourself flow with our own currents, our creative, unbound, fearless nature. Deep within us is this balanced Joy and It's expansive, boundless freedom. It Lives like the spark of a little kid learning to ride her bike. She knows she can do it, she knows- and she does. We are this powerful knowing and we can do it. That Child holds hands with the Greater Light of ourself, the Infinite Mind of God. Of course we can do it. We can Live in these wide open fields of unbound beauty, the Light Divine that is always here, always Present. See the Quantum Magic, as we lift our view of Life - we lift our world. I love this holy time and I love you

 

The Way of Love


The holy wisdom to stand alone and be true to our Self is the Way of Love. Those who make their own Self-discovery are not swept into the panic and fear that paints the scene, nor are we made slave to the false world view, the mechanistic, measurable, objective view. Knowing who we are, we are moved to Love our world mightily and our others evermore dearly. We don't take sides, we don't take offense - we don't need to. Our power is this divine authority within us and that guiding Light leads our way in perfect harmony. This World and this Life we are living belongs to God alone and only, This Living Presence of God is Life Itself. We are This Life. We don't have to "see" certain things be what we think they should be, or shouldn't be. We find inner peace and joy as we let Life Live It's Glorious Splendor. Living this happy heart of this holy Child we are, is synergistic, quantum - so it is one by one that we change our world - as we find our Real Identity. It is up to each of us to take hold our Divine Heritage and Live It. Love is an Intelligence, Love is the very Nature of Life, the action of giving and receiving - this Is the Divine Equation of God. Everything about Life flows perfectly as Love does the work - and It does - always.

Blooming Wonder


Painting "Blooming Wonder" by Sandy Jones 


Blooming Wonder 
The real joy of this self-discovery is that I feel so earthy, full of contradictions, yet happy that this is so. I am joyfully free. I feel this sensual love that moves me, sweeps me into the arms of Life itself. I am touched by this holy, innocent, uninhibited liveliness that bubbles irrepressibly through me. I feel whole and real. Whatever this is, it is beautiful, divine, sacred, gentle and full of love. This is the sweetest wonder and childlike delight. I don't have to live up to anyone's expectations nor even my own. Perhaps mostly my own. Being alive and open to this Living Presence of Life, I find myself in the richness of being that lives from an infinite river of a sacred Love. Being full of myself is being full of Life, the whole Presence of living includes it all. The Life I am includes you and it includes everyone and everything. This is my sweet freedom, found and lived. Oh how There is only One Self, God is the Self-Knowing Awareness I am. My heart was broken wide open, out of this I know expansive vision, this heart includes them it all, all of it, all life, everything is the living joy of ongoing love I am, this Identity we are is the light and Life of God alone- All Life ts This --

This Way





 I thought about your beauty and light, this morning, as the sunrise woke me. It has me wandering the happy trails with you. I see you shine, I see you sparkle, golden sunbeams. Me, I have no plans and no intention on arriving anywhere.  I am already here, wherever I go. I hope you don’t mind. I love this sweet freedom that shows me the way. And, you know, I’m always in love with you, you know that.

I am delighted by the ever-ongoing happy effusion of surprises. The magic exudes its evidence, as I see the love in your eyes, the love pouring out as everything moving along in childlike illumination of wonder.

This whole adventure, being here, living it, this is a world of magic. Living miracles and wonders, fairytales and memories, taken into the unreasonable, into the spacious, unconstrained beauty of Infinite Love. God is Love, God's Life seen as this swirling, dancing world of you and me - It is all here in this enchanted heart of a living, beauty unleashed by the believing, knowing Faith, the holy Child of us.

She is my soul and she leads me along this path, holding hands, she shows us the way home. We return to the pristine beauty we are. Imbibing in love. Drinking Life in, the holy Presence saturates my soul.

Into the dark blue air, to gaze upon the starry night, we look up and out to see the sparkling magic and of Divine wonder everywhere, in everything.

Here, in the meadow we dream, laying next to you, the way of love is revealed. This road of life, it leads us back to the heart, the one reality that sings this livng love song we are. Feeling this love, we come alive to our whole world, back to our self.

We find a hidden glen. Fingertips and breath. Breathing you. We are the substance of things unseen. We are music and laugher in playful rapture, feeling how close, your voice whispers. We are painting the sky with pink reflections of glorious sunsets and shimmering castles floating above the silver dewdrops gleaming on the green grass and here we are in the misty rain of God's cosmic light.



I found this little sketch of Ojai, that I did. It was in an artwork folder with things I’d painted several years ago. It’s rather adorable, I think. So I just felt like sharing it.


I love Ojai, it is such a lovely home for me. I can't think of a better place to live, in these times, in these days.


The little painting got me thinking. I've been very lucky to have lived in such wonderful places. I grew up in Corona del Mar, one of the most beautiful beach towns of California. It was a very special little enclave, many years ago. It's still one of my forevrer favorite places.


Then I moved to Maui for a year or two. After that, I went to Aspen, Colorado. I met my husband to be, there. We got married, bought a beautiful, soulful home on a little creek, near the airport, Owl Creek Road. Heaven on earth. We raised our three kids there. What a glorious place that was. Aspen is known for it's blue sky and sunshine, even in the middle of winter. It would snow at night and be bright and magical during the day. I'd ski at least three times a week, all winter long. And the summers were green and lush. Spring time, rivers rushing, clear and icy, roaring with the run off from snowy peaks. Warm summer days, and the cool breeze blowing gently from the mountain tops - we'd always laugh, saying it was like natural air-conditioning.


And now, here, in Ojai, back in California, happily ensconced in 'the nest of the moon.' This town is truly sublime. It is, very definitely, a mystical and magical valley. Locals and visitors alike, get to enjoy the creative delights of my little shop, which is such a pleasure for me. And, when I can, I get to play in my rustic, but beautiful, art studio, quietly abiding in the back yard. A sweet little sanctuary for me. And then too, the ever joyful surprises of unexpected friends who often stop by to share their love, their laughter and their beautiful hearts with me.
