Which "Light" to Chose - For Justin

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 13 June 2014 in Abstract & Conceptual.

For our Grandson Justin

In almost everyone's life,There are milestones....
Points, where we are faced with a choice of paths to follow;
These happen many times throughout our lives, but each particular choice is unique and
only comes once....The next Choice will be different in meaning and in purpose;

It is impossible to make the right choice every time,
But perhaps, a good way to make sure the "right" choice is
taken MOST of the time - is to take the one that
speaks to your spirit....The choice that you just know is the right one; The choice that your intuition says is correct...these are not necessarily in your mind;

The lamp post, the Moon, and the Cloud, are symbols that represent choices of three paths:
The post is ridged and unbending - strong and unwavering, but also bright with light;
The moon is constant in it's movement; It travels practically the same path....almost always, but not not precisely. The moon is spiritual and soft;
The cloud is ever-changing, ever moving....Growing and receding;

So, which choice is the right one?....The answer?...Could be Any of them! Sometimes all of them!

Because THIS is where your heart comes into the picture! The flexibility of the cloud, the motion of the moon, the strength of the pole...each have their own benefits.... if chosen at the proper time. This is where your heart comes in!

Your heart is the true quiding light.... if you allow it to help you....if you always keep the heart that you now have, your heart will always be the key. Always in You

We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
