Romancing Your Life
Love is the Essence of Spiritual Fire
Romance is defined as a quality of feeling, of mystery, excitement and remoteness from everyday life.
At this time of Valentine's Day we naturally ponder the idea of romantic love and often we think of it as the love between two people. Could it be that romance is really feeling a heightened sense of joy in your life and loving your life. Love and romance, in my opinion, extends into so many relationships. It can be the love we have for ourselves, enough to take ourselves on an artist date. It can be the love and excitement we feel with our special loved one. I've experienced romance through all the coming togethers I capture; friends celebrating with each other; people with their pets; people enjoying their family in the beauty and wonder of nature and individuals who feel a special joy about something they've accomplished which brings them joy, and yes, couples on their wedding day with friends and family; and proposals which are so joyful. I've come to understand that we can feel romance with all our Earth's family, and in doing whatever brings us joy -- how wonderful is this?
How can we attract that romantic feeling about our lives on a deeper level?
Being present and conscious is always a good start. When we're present, all our senses are engaged and we are open to the exquisite life we are gifted.
Could it be as simple as arising in the morning and thinking of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe - to think - to enjoy love ~ Marcus Aurelius
I feel that besides capturing celebrations of life; I really have the privilege of capturing the romance of life in this beautiful Sedona red rock country. And...most of the time I gift these whole and beautiful experiences in nature, which I so love.
What romance would you like to seize and embrace?
