Look! What do you see?

Ah! Thank you so much for stopping by. Today the theme has emerged. Seeing the divine in others. It seems we have been conditioned to notice that which is objectionable. Then to alleviate the discomfort with ourselves. We talk with others about what you have only, perceived about them. Today I want to know that partContinue reading “Look! What do you see?”
