“O God! O God! This is a broken-winged bird and his flight is very slow—assist him so that he may fly toward the apex of prosperity and salvation, wing his way with the utmost joy and happiness throughout the illimitable space, raise his melody in Thy Supreme Name in all the regions, exhilarate the ears with this call, and brighten the eyes by beholding the signs of guidance.”
“All are nourished and quickened into life by the bounty of the same rain; all grow and develop by the heat and light of the one sun; all are refreshed and exhilarated by the same breeze; that they may bring forth varied fruits. This is according to the creative wisdom. If all trees bore the same kind of fruit it would cease to be delicious. In their never ending variety man finds enjoyment instead of monotony.”
fiona (sydney, australia) left: Nineteen days of limbs reaching in length towards a unified goal of consciousness, as we collaborate our thoughts and prayers as one through these fleeting daily moments. Nineteen days of peeling off our layers and replanting the seeds within the fertile ground of our minds, as to why we are here, why we strive through our waking journeys and where it will align. Nineteen days of delicately sewing our nightly reflections into the soles of our feet, to guide us through to the next awaiting day. From the dewy dawn to the scintillating dusk, the absence of light within the lulled Winter bows gracefully down and allows for Spring to tiptoe through and embrace us all.
I’ve stuck to traditional themes, using the cress to represent new life and growth, and the old Persian necklace as a momento of the reflections for the Bahai’s in Iran.

Be thou content with it and seek naught else, for My work is perfect and My command is binding. Question it not, nor have a doubt thereof.” ~ Bahá’u’lláh
