Which Lens?

      1. It was a rash, angry and vain question to God…’show me the truth’…so He did.
        Shocked me to pieces…but I found something so incredibly beautiful…me…the true me, not the one buried in fear.
        I just keep smiling now because of what had been hidden within all along, just waiting for me to get out of my own way 😀

      2. I have learned, still am in fact, to really “watch” what I am saying to God. I know of someone for example, who keeps praying for strength, and do you know that all kinds of situations pop up for this person to develop strength? Awareness is key when asking and seeking. I saw that again so clearly yesterday. And yes in the shedding of skins, skins that are ugly, the true Light is able to be known. And when that happens, the “reactions” from some around you are not exactly what you “thought” they would be. 🙂 Life is truly some Journey!!! ❤

    1. This picture it seems goes on for forever, does it not? I am a sure it is not as soft as I made it look, probably filled with brambles and thorns and mud and holes. Yet when I viewed this, all I saw was the magnificent beautiful this meadow radiated. We all have choices how to view Life with, Susan. Some days are more challenging then others, that I do know personally. Much Love to you, dear friend! ❤

    1. Ahhhh, honesty! Life it seems still pushes my buttons so that I too see through lenses that I much prefer not to and in so doing, learn how to switch lenses in the process. We are all amateurs, dear friend, stumbling about trying to fulfill the blueprint of our Lives. Some days we do well. Others, we fall. (((HUGS))) ❤

    1. Sometimes we do not see that which is hidden, Morgirl, for has this meadow not experienced anger when Mother lashes out in fury? Has this meadow not known hate when mankind walks on by consumed by hatred in the heart and does not see the beauty around him? This place pulled on me so strongly and I had to frame it just right. So happy you came by to see this today!!! 🙂 ❤

    1. Yet to understand and appreciate the rose colored lens, don’t we have to experinece the less then appealing lenses? Isn’t that what living fully means? And isn’t it one of the reasons why we are here is to transform the less desirable lenses into that of Love and all that It encompasses? Those other lenses are there for a purpose as well, Marissa. The painful ones have been my Greatest Teachers. 🙂 ❤

    1. Laura, it’s tough to stay positive all the time. I think our challenge is to transform the less desirable lenses or emotions into that of Love and all It contains. Learning is a continual ongoing process here in the classroom of Life. I think you are doing an outstanding job on yourself!!! 🙂 ❤

      1. So true Amy. Besides…I don’t think it’s a bad thing to be negative sometimes because we are flawed as human beings and will never be perfect. That in itself is a flaw to think we can! And thanks for the vote of confidence!

      2. There is no doubt I am flawed and I will be the first to admit it. Anyone who says they are not are pompous and arrogant. Delusional actually. And afraid to live life fully. No, it’s not a “bad” thing to be negative at times. Those emotions as well were meant to be acknowledged and experienced. Anyone again who claims they have these emotions under control is lying. And you are so very welcome for the vote of confidence!!! 🙂 ❤

    1. Yes, Kathy, on the wide angle Lens for Peace. And yes this image, this place really touched me for reasons I honestly couldn’t say. Sometimes when we are stirred deep within that stirring goes beyond mere words. ❤

    1. I do too, Brenda, yet there are times I fail miserably. For today for example. I was not having higher thoughts yet I stopped myself and deliberately began to sing a song in my “own language” to music I “hear” as I sing. As I did, my perspective shifted and again, Joy found its way into my Heart and Love right at its heels. Glorious!!! Sometimes we have to manually shift those gears to get us back to Higher Thinking and Acts. Much Love, dear friend! 🙂 ❤

    1. Thank you, Raewyn!! This scene just drew me in and I stood there for a long time, just drinking the beauty in. I carefully looked to see how I would frame this and so this is the product of that framing. Bless you, dear friend!! ❤

    1. How truly observant you are, Dan. I deliberated for quite some time as to how best frame this scene. It just tugged at me and tugged hard for reasons I am not able to explain. This park is specular with vista after vista, very different from my “favorite park” which you will see next week. Yes I am posting pics from my “favorite forest”. My new camera worked like a dream for me and I am getting used to the 9 pounds I have on my person as I hike. Hubby even offered to carry my “stuff” and I said no. The weight plus the hiking is really toning me and then some! LOL 🙂 ❤

      1. Dan, I am very careful with my neck. I am wearing the camera vest with camera attached and a fanny pack around my waist where I carry my maps, water and personal effects. All the weight is being carried by my torso. When I do just take the camera, the strap is slung across my chest with one shoulder carrying it. No weight on neck. NONE. I’m proud of myself for what I am doing, because not only does that weight tend to get heavy, but, I am using a body that is now strong that doctors said would be in a wheelchair. You never know what you can accomplish when you strive for the Stars. Which I have done and am still doing. 🙂 ❤

    1. You are so very welcome, dear Monica. The whole point of my Petals is to radiate Love, Peace, Beauty, Truth, Joy out into the world and into the Hearts of all who come here. I am so pleased that what my Intention is all about, IS. Bless you! You as well have a wonderful weekend. I have plans on going to a place this evening to capture the magic in the Light. (((HUGS))) ❤

    1. EEEK!!!! You have the exact lens that is on my dream list!! NICE!!! The lens I have right now f/4 24-150mm with my full frame camera is a dream come true so I can only imagine what the f/2.8 lens would be like. Thank YOU for this beautiful comment, Randall!!! Much Love, ❤

    1. Thank YOU kindly, Grey, for your words of thrill you shared with me! It took me many years to get this new toy and I just would not give up on my dream of owning what I have today. May I suggest you create BEAUTY and DRAMA from your anger? I do. For real. Example … When my best friend died, I was angry for 3 years and in that span of time I created many of my existing gardens today with nothing other then a shovel and a spade. That is hard work but my anger had to go someplace. And so I broiled and screamed and worked my ass off and in so doing today I have a Paradise here on our property. This world is very messed up, dear friend. Don’t focus on it. Create your own world. Yours and yours only! I so encourage you to do so. BIG (((HUGS))) Amy ❤
