A.L.L.O.W. - Appreciate Life - Let Openness Win - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
Accept the reality that right now, things are just what they are. And of course, they will surely change. But if you can ever find the wisdom to allow this moment to be what it is, you can find the silver lining in every situation. This instance is just a momentary reflection of life's passing show. So relax, appreciate it, and enjoy the show. Live in the Tao, & endlessly allow.

D.I.R.T. - Diamonds In Rough Transform - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
Yes, there are diamonds in the rough everywhere. This image is the surface of the side of an old truck. But the color & cloud-like forms are like something out of an old Buddhist painting.
Yes, if one just changes the way you see, perceive, & truly appreciate the miracle of life, you will fill your life with abundance & shimmering magic. Slow down & waken to the amazing wonder all around. You only exists right here & now, so stop trying to rush to the next thing, since right now is the only time to be the fulfilled fruit of life.

S.K.Y. - Simply Know Yourself - R.McDougal/ Isle of View
Simply know yourself...probably the hardly thing in life to do.
And may I suggest, simply know your selflessness. It's great to realize
that the crystal mirror of your own mind reflects everything, but is nothing
at all. Actually, it is empty, luminous, conscious display of your life presenting
itself. You are the sky & everything else is the weather. Mind is your unchanging
magical essence behind it all. So enjoy the show, but don't get entangled in the
passing reflections of life.

Y.E.S. - Your Essence Shines - R.McDougal/ Isle of View
Your pure, perfect essence is always shining behind it all! Just like the clouds sometimes obscure the pure light of the sun, likewise, your essence is always untouched & pure. So let go & know. Let life flow. And don't get caught up in momentary dramas. It's all a passing show. Take time for now & you will remember how. You are loved & part of the universe's grand design. Behind it all, please realize that everything is fine!

E.C.H.O. - Eternal Center Harvests Oneness - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
Realize that you are always in the center & in balance... when you "let it be". Relax into the calm center and let moving life swirl around you. Just remember that you are always in the center of time & space, here & now. Everything is an instant echo emanating from your awakened, accepting, calm mind. It's such a good thing to find...Tune in & turn on to your own magic...

S.O.A.R. - Seeing Op Art Rewards - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
I always appreciate when people use art creatively. This is a floor in a restaurant in Boulder.
I purposely got my foot in the photo, so one can realize that it's probably a floor. So open the door & let your mind soar. There's so much in store, when you use your imagination as transportation. Let your mind glide & enjoy the ride.

W.I.N. - Walk Into Now - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
Just realize that your life is an eternal nowness. Outside happenings & appearances are a constantly moving mosaic. But you are always in the center of your own mind movie of now. You are always in the center of your space: here. And you are always in the center of time: now. So find your place in the center of space. And find that in eternal time everything rhymes.

S.O.A.R. - Simply Open And Receive - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
To receive anything in life, we must be open to it. So many people close themselves off and aren’t open to the wonderful gifts of life. We have to learn that it’s okay to open, because nothing can harm your mind. Nobody can ever get inside your head and make you uptight or afraid. The thoughts and emotions are just figs and twigs and jigs floating on the river of life. Don’t worry about anything. It’s all a passing show. Open to the light, and you will be all right. Then you can become the delight of the day and the night. Give yourself flight. Open your door and let yourself soar.
