Hearts in nature

February 13, 2011

The header of my blog has one – a heart in nature. Not the shape of the web that the spiny-backed orb weaver prepared overnight, but the space in the middle of the perfectly shaped web.

The heart of the web~Praveen Suri

This photo is special because it was taken by my husband, and is like a perennial Valentine’s Day gift!

Spaces in-between words. That’s where the heart of the message lies.

A few years later, in the same garden, a wonderful being, Swami Shraddhananda, explained to me the concept of wordless prayer and how people needed to connect everyday, not asking for anything, or even having an intention, but connecting in gratitude and silent prayer with many others, for Gaia, our Mother Earth and all beings. As he spoke on the phone from across the globe, I was recording his words with a make-shift arrangement, using a movie camera to record the sound, and filming the sky, the trees and whatever else the camera captured.

When I sent the footage to Kathy, a gifted friend, who was making a video, she saw at once that the clouds had formed a special shape.

Clouds love the Gaia Minute message!

Two images from nature, two hearts fashioned in my garden. This garden has an even more special place in my heart now!

Remembering Swamiji who had told us as he left for the mountains: Look within, in love I am. That could very well be the message that Gaia is giving us.

In the silence of heart.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
