Pass it On. . . The Gift of Love

Today, I’ld like to give a shout out to Sorrow who gives of herself with her time and her art in so many ways.    Sorrow sells beautiful hand-crafted art at the Labrynth ShopALL procedes from her shop are donated to worthy charities involving the development and betterment of life for children.  I repeat, ALL proceeds.

If there is nothing in the shop , but some piece of art you would like, I am happy to due commission for this cause please just click the "request a custom item " on the side bar and let me know what you would like!
From my heart to yours, Thank you for making a difference in the life of a child! We can do only small things, with great love..

Sorrow also gives of her time.  For instance, last summer, Sorrow invited a young  teenager into her home for the summer.  She enabled the teen to experience life she may never have experienced in the situation in which she presently lives.  This type of mentering shows young people  that life can be different!  It is a blessing.  I know, I’ve been that girl living in a disfunctinal family, for lack of a better term, mentored by a loving family!  It showed me that life was not all dismal, sad, and hard.  I was able to experience nature, love, beauty.  It was a beautiful experience for me and has had profound impact on who I am today!  It was a blessing to me and I thank Sorrow for doing the same for others out there! 

Sorrow often gives begging bowls (Image below).   She may sell them in the shop.  I didn’t see them however.  Here is a short description of these bowls, as Sorrow described these to her guest last summer on her last day of the visit . . .

…I was fortunate to meet some Tibetan monks who were traveling and making Mandalas. I got into some really wonderful conversations with one of them. Then later I read a book that spoke of how these monks would go into the street with a bowl, a begging bowl. They would take whatever was put into their bowl and make dinner out of it. I was inspired to make these tiny bowls on cords as a reminder that every day life puts something in your bowl, and what ever that something is, it’s up to you to use it to nourish your mind, your body or your spirit….

So, nourish your mind, body an spirit and pass on the gift of Love. . . .

Thanks Sorrow for all you do and for all you are! 

Peace, Light and Love. . . Cordieb.

The Ego

Received this in my email today from The Daily Guru

Each of us has an ego with which our essential Identify is associated in space and time. But, this ego is not inherently evil or wicked. It is simply limited and, like any tool or a knife, it can serve a useful function, or it can cause great harm.

In its functional role, the ego allows us to walk and talk and hold down a job and pay our bills. In this sense, the ego and the sense of identity we hold about ourselves is like a coil with a bright light shining inside. The greater the illusion and the stronger the sense of false identity, the more tightly coiled the spring.

However, when we see through the illusion and the false sense of an independent and separate self, the coil begins to relax and open up, and the light of Essence shines through as Presence — naturally radiant, clear and bright.
