No permanence is ours, we are a wave that flows to fit whatever form it finds.

Holiness comes wrapped in the ordinary. There are burning bushes all around you. Every tree is full of angels. Hidden beauty is waiting in every crumb.
Macrina Wiederkehr, O.S.B
A Tree Full of Angels

rosa-luna:

Every midwife knows
that not until a mother’s womb
softens from the pain of labour
will a way unfold
and the infant find that opening to be born.

Oh friend!
There is treasure in your heart, it is heavy with child.
Listen.
All the awakened ones, like trusted midwives are saying,
welcome this pain.
It opens the dark passage of Grace.

~ Rumi

libutron:

The commonly known as Pink Bubble, Swollen Bubble, Royal paper bubble, Ship’s flag shell or Swollen bubble, is a marine snail of the species Hydatina amplustre, Syn. Aplustrum amplustre (Gastropoda - Aplustridae), widely distributed in the Indo-Pacific.
This species is easily recognized by its thin, strongly inflated shell marked with broad flesh-colored bands outlined in black. The animal is translucent cream and too large to fit in the shell [source].
Hydatina amplustre is a nocturnal species and vision is not the most important sense, so the two black spots you see in the photo are the ocelli, the visual organs that only distinguish light and dark.

Things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy. Pema Chödrön (via lightthroughrain)
