A Quote by Daphne Rose Kingma on beauty, aliveness, interest, challenge, juice, vitality, passion, cells, morning, and a loving moment

Aliveness is energy. It's the juice,the vitality, and the passion that wakes up our cells every morning. It's what makes us want to dance. It's the energy that moves a relationship from the status quo to something grander and much more expansive, something that makes our hearts beat faster, our minds, and our eyes open wider than ever before. Everything is of interest to a person who is truly alive, whether it's a challenge, a loving moment, a bucket of grief, or a glimpse of beauty.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on passion, open eye, community, spirit, rumi, and unity consciousness

There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street
and being the noise.

Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace.

Close both eyes
to see with the other eye.

Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)

Art offers us a way to go beyond mere physical existence. We, the creatures with the most advanced consciousness, have been described as nature becoming aware of itself. We form art. Art forms us.
