L.I.F.E. - Let Imagination Frame Enchantment - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
I once read in a photo book, "The name of the game, is "fill the frame". The life we get is equal to the one that we are creative enough to see & create. All of the elements are always out there. But how do we see & put things together. My first book was called Mirror of Mind, as in "What you think is what you get." Why not arrange your world to create a harmonic, inspiring world for yourself? Life is short. Go create in life's magic court. P.L.A.Y. - Project Life's Answers Now

S.O.A.R. - Seeing Opens Awakened Reality
"S.O.A.R. - Seeing Opens Awakened Reality" - R.McDougal/ Isle of View
Only when we truly see, will we be able to rise above unawareness.
The word "Buddha" comes from the Sanskrit word "bodhi" which means "awake". Through mindfulness practice we can become more & more aware of the subtle vastness of our own mind. Since everything takes place in your mind, it's obviously the most important treasure to find. Take time to unwind & find your very own mind!

U.F.O. - Unusual Fruit Orbiting - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
Sometimes people think that they don't as much as others. But if you observe very carefully, you might just discover that you have some assets just waiting to be harvested. As they say, "We all create our own luck." and "The harder I work, the luckier I get." What a coincidence. So grow your own possibilities. And then maybe you can "can" it. Yes you can! We live in a very big cosmos, so let your senses magnetize a little magic for yourself. Openness opens possibilities.

Symmetry in action. I really don't know if there's anything to these numbers lining up, but it's always nice to be reminded of the magic of life. I decided that I would go down by the creek close to my studio here in Boulder. It's a beautiful day, so it was nice to be outside. I actually saw some tree silhouettes in the water reflected that actually sorted of looked like a row of ones (maybe I'll post later). And then when I was about to get back in the car, I looked up & saw these unusual clouds that also kind of looked like a row of the numeral one. Oh well, it is curious & fun to discover the unending symmetry & endless display in our cosmos. Enjoy your day & be the one. Cheers! -Russell

V.I.P. - Vision Illuminates Paradise
Yes, we are all VIP - Very Important People. Our own life matters a lot, especially to us, since this our flowering moment. But it takes vision to see who you are & who you can be in the big picture. Let your mind soar & really explore. There are so many possibilities just waiting to be uncovered. The only difference between the enlightened person & the ignorant is how they see the world. Learn to see the extraordinary in the ordinary & you will be well on your way to discovering your very own paradise. I see, said the man blinded by the light. -Russell
