Life Is A Game. Play It Well.

(Late Night Fairy Flight by Diamante Lavendar)

Dimension means a measurable unit of space. This dimension occupies a space-but only a tiny space as compared to the universe.
This dimension demands attention. But usually we give it the wrong attention. This dimension demands that we take heed of its specifications. However, we need to learn that its specifications-in a large way- are brought about by our beliefs.
What we believe comes true-good and bad. We directly affect ourselves and our personal space in this dimension according to what our core beliefs are. That is why we must carefully guard our hearts and minds.
Of course, the constraints and freedoms we experience in our lives here are also spiritually determined. There is a path we have chosen to take that we find ourselves walking day after day. Our beliefs affect that path moment by moment, day by day, year by year. Therefore it is important to believe in good so that we end up in a good place-if not here, after our game here is over.
This is true regardless of what has happened to us. If our lives have been harsh then how much more do we need to believe in good! Earth is a learning ground. We’ve all come here to grow. If we grow tall in light and love despite our circumstances, we are winning the game of this dimension. Because, after all, “life” here IS just a game. But an important game. A game, if played right, of growth and wisdom.
The stronger we are-the more able we are to live according to love and light-the more we evolve. Hardship is the greatest teacher. If you’re experiencing great hardship, you’re learning invaluable lessons that will help you evolve into love, light and truth. Embrace it to the best of your ability.
After all is said and done, when you’re standing in the light of eternity, you will understand that this life has only been a game of learning. So play it well.  You’ll be really glad you did!

Sky Maiden

My new piece entitled Sky Maiden!

The Sky Maiden lives in the essence of love;
With butterflies, rainbows and peaceful doves;
The Sky Maiden reminds us to give love a chance;
To laugh, to inspire, to embrace, to dance.

We Are The World

We are the world. Together we can create peace, love and prosperity for Mother Earth. It is up to us individually and as a community to make the dream of heaven on earth come true. We hold amazing power to change for the better if we make the decision to do so.

Missing You

 

The truth of your love you left behind,
A treasure, a gift that you hoped I’d soon find;
You helped me to learn and wished that I’d grow,
I never imagined I’d be missing you so;
Life seemed so harsh many years ago,
Now darker than I ever wanted to know;
I’m not sure how to handle this agony and pain,
As I look at your pictures again and again;
A mother’s love is not taken for granted,
For children she prayed for and desperately wanted;
I’m not sure how I can go on living,
But I know you’d tell me to keep on trying.
I think of heaven and I hear your voice,
In my heart and my head where you left a deep void;
I wonder if maybe I’m losing my mind,
Because I’m wishing so hard you hadn’t left me behind;
Celby, Jazzy, my beautiful girls,
My love, my passion, my yearning, my world;
Please tell me you’re still here, right beside me,
And ask God to wrap me in his presence and hide me;
I beg Him some day to heal these misgivings,
So I know I can live in a state of forgiveness.

I am lost without you.  Love Mommy.

The Gift Of Life

 

(Available at https://fineartamerica.com/featured/1-the-gift-of-life-diamante-lavendar.html)

When life gets tough, it’s not so easy to see it as a gift. When we are hurt or bad things happen, life seems to be anything but a gift.

This is a world where we come to learn, to grow and to understand. The only way to do these things is by living through good times and bad, in pressure and in happiness. It’s a human perception that moving away from rough things is what we need. And yes, that is what we need, but only after we’ve addressed the issues presented to us.

Life is a test and a testament. A test of whether or not we can get through hardship and a testament as to what we’ve conquered.

This piece I created speaks of the gift of life. Through pain and turmoil we see and learn about meaning in even the littlest things. Life is a gift: of growth, learning, seeking, finding and understanding.

Namaste!

Introducing Artist Monika Vijay!

I met Monika on Fuzia.  She is an artist from India-a very talented artist!  I offered to feature her on my blog and social media sites.  Here are a few pieces of her work:

U & Me

Autumn Beauty

Lord Buddha

A Note From Monika:

Hello,
This is Monika Vijay. I am from Bihar. I was never into painting and writing until I got older.
With my parents’ pressure and interest, I was taught painting by Diya Mam when I was in 7th study; but after that I didn’t do much work with it until prompted by my husband.
Now, after marriage and getting free from studies, my hubby encouraged me to be a painter. He bought colors, brushes, charts and everything required for painting. Now I’m used to it and I love painting whenever I get free time. I have also started taking drawing classes.
Next, I’m going to sell my paintings for home decor or for hotel & restaurant interiors. People can contact me as per their painting requirement.
I would like to thank my hubby for encouraging me and for helping me to become a fine painter now.

Four New Photographs!

Here are some of my new pieces. All available on my art website.

The first is entitled After The Rain.

Water falls upon the earth anew.  From morning’s mist to setting sunlight’s dew.  Cascading upon nature, bringing life again.  Another simple pleasure from heaven’s blissful realm.  Celebrate rain and our earth’s health!

My photograph entitled Cotton Candy Clouds.

On a warm, winter day as the snow melts away, the clouds came out to shift and play in a cotton candy formed array!

My photograph entitled Purple Rain.

Rain is soothing to the soul.  How much more is purple rain?  The color purple uplifts and calms.  It is the color of royalty and spiritual awakening.  Purple also encourages creativity.  What more could you ask for?

My piece entitled Moonlight Branches.

On a lonely, moonlit night, gnarled branches caught my artist’s sight.  Displaying calm and peaceful gloom, their image met my camera’s zoom!  I love night time.  I see the most peaceful things in the dark of night.

Sea Goddess

My newest piece of fractal/digital art.

Water is one of our most precious commodities.  We need to respect it and take good care of it so that it can continue to sustain us.

Sea Goddess interprets the beauty of water on the planet and acknowledges that it had to have been created by divine guidance.

Angel Of Light

Here is my newest creation entitled Angel Of Light! A combination of digital and fractal art!

Angels are all around us all of the time.  We can feel them in our hearts and see them in our minds’ eye.  Sometimes we’re lucky enough to see them with our natural eyes and they can be felt too with a cool, prickly sensation or a warm, loving sensation.  They are only a heartbeat away!  (https://fineartamerica.com/featured/angel-of-lilght-diamante-lavendar.html?newartwork=true).
