The Way I See It: 

Photos are ways to turn a moment into eternity… the beauty of this world is always there surrounding us, if you can’t see it change your glasses or search for inspiring photos.

Flower Power – Delicate Defeat

History of the expression “Flower power” was a slogan used by the American counterculture movement during the late 1960s and early 1970s as a symbol of passive resistance and non-violence ideology.It is rooted in the opposition movement to the Vietnam War.The expression was coined by the American Beat poet Allen Ginsberg in 1965 as a means to transform war protests into peaceful affirmative spectacles. Hippies embraced the symbolism by dressing in clothing with embroidered flowers and vibrant colors, wearing flowers in their hair, and distributing flowers to the public, becoming known as flower children. The term later became generalized as a modern reference to the hippie movement and a culture of drugs, psychedelic music, psychedelic art and social permissiveness.

I love Toronto when summer is so close, when flowers really blossom, when people start to wear bright colors, shorts, and heavy winter coats are sent to laundry…& These photos represent this moment when I took them………

The Way I see It: I am always defeated by a flower …and it’s a delicate defeat.

A gifted flower is all about capturing a moment – a moment of love, of appreciation, of Happy Birthday, I am sorry, I love you, welcome back , feel well, goodbye, don’t forget me and I have always loved you. This is why we tend to keep them, dry them as long as we want to keep the moment close to our hearts …

If you can’t give a real Flower, share these photos with anyone you want to tell him/her something …or better go outside and breathe their beauty…this is how God speaks to us sometimes…reminding us ..we are so beautiful….

A Miracle

History: St. Joseph’s Oratory is a great basilica with a giant copper dome built in honor of St. Joseph, patron saint of Canada. The massive edifice, high on the slopes of Mount Royale in Quebec, belies its simple origins as the dream of a humble lay brother named Brother André. Pilgrims still come from all over North America to pray for healing at the shrine of Fr. André, (the Miracle Man)  who was canonized a saint in 2010.

People who received miracles left their canes as a proof of healing (see pic. above). When I took this photo, I was praying profoundly for a miracle to happen …and to heal.

My Miracle did not happen and I never really had what I was praying for…and I healed.

How many times you were standing in a sacred place praying to God, the Universe or whatever Infinite Consciousness to help you, to listen to your pain, to give you strength, to give you back your lover, money, health, to heal your broken heart, to save your child, to give you one, to save your marriage, your family? …….we all did …even if you are an atheist you couldn’t help it one day to look up the sky and say “help me”.

But then, sometimes, miracle doesn’t happen and prayers are not answered…………… Or so we think!

The way I see it:

If we open our eyes ……..if we shut up and listen …….if we stand still for a moment…….we can hear the answers. We can see and understand the “why”…..sometimes it is not what we prayed for ….(it hurts so much I know …..!) but if we trust ourselves enough, we can believe that if we open ourselves to receive ….we will not receive nothing less than a miracle  ……100% of the time …more miraculous than the initial miracle we prayed for!

Just remind yourself “I am the Miracle – Buddha”.

Peace on earth

“Peace is our work: it Calls for our courageous and united action. Do not be afraid to take a chance on peace, to teach peace.”
Pope Jean Paul II

Wish you all “peace” it is our natural state, not happiness…
