#light #sky #colors #glow #radiant #sunset #goldenhour #magical #surreal #dusk #clouds #rain #storm #rainbow #raining #nature #water #pond #lake #beauty #love #earth #dream #peace #vibrant #fountain #trees #brilliant .. this was the best light i’ve seen on a #bikeride in quite a while. my iphone se (original, four year old model) couldn’t quite capture all the beauty nor the surreal feeling & experience of being surrounded by such magical light. i would gladly welcome donations or a gift of the iphone 11 with ultra-wide angle lens so i have more photographic capability in my pocket wherever i go. i may have to start carrying my 360 degree camera with me to capture the beautiful #florida summer skies.

feeling the cool air as i stepped outside, being surrounded by a magical glow of brilliant colors as rain drizzled from the sky and off the wet trees (and moments later seeing a hint of mist or fog near other trees in the distance), and being almost completely by myself with no one else on the path/sidewalk the whole way to the park (and barely any cars driving by), it felt like i was in a dream. its beautiful how nature can so perfectly express itself in the combination of all of these aspects as the storm quickly passed just in time for an amazing golden hour. although its been over a decade since i visited hawaii, the tropical feeling reminded me a bit of being out there exploring a couple of the islands.
remember to look for the beauty in the world.  going to nature and noticing the details & the unique expressions of the trees & plants is a simple way to begin to discover how beautiful planet earth is.

together let us call forth the complete healing, permanent awakening, and flowering of the heart of all of humanity.  from this place, a new earth will naturally unfold to reflect the beauty we all radiate from within, and we'll all be able to live in perfect harmony with each other & the planet. -
as the collective consciousness awakens and we live from a more heart-centered place, we will naturally create a beautiful world where all will live with good health, well-being, happiness, peace, love, joy, abundance, clean air, organic food, sustainability, renewable & free energy, zero emissions transportation, resilient shelter, a healed climate, many natural spaces, etc, etc.  in this new earth we will see the end of war, violence, greed, control, fear, domination, oppression, hate, and anything else created by the mind that no longer serves us.

i decided to go back again to clearwater beach yesterday before it closed.  i walked north, almost all the way to caladesi island, and got some nice shots.  there were more than these, though the old iphone i’m using for the mavic mini didn’t have enough space to keep the previews, so i’ll have to download them off the microSD card later.  the fifth shot is sped up by 3.5x to fit into the instagram sixty second limit.  the filters are from the dji fly app (where the shots were cut from the low resolution preview video file). #flying #dji #mavic #mini #rc #quadcopter #drone #sunset #yesterday #beach #clearwaterbeach #florida #natural #beauty #birdseyeview #aerial #lookingdown #fromabove #dronephotography #aerialphotography #mavicmini #dronevideo #aerialvideo #sand #island #nature #water #gulf #goldenhour #landscape
we must collectively do what we can to preserve nature and protect the planet. places like this won’t exist if the sea levels rise.

it’s amazing what one can discover with good light, a higher perspective, and the beauty of nature.

after reviewing shots from my last flight on the beach and walking back towards my car, i saw the sun beginning to break through the clouds and had a feeling it’d be worth sticking around the area for another flight. i drove up the road to a public access spot that was taken by another car when i first got to the beach and saw they were gone. i parked and walked to the water to have a look, and the islands were dark at the time. i decided to go back to the car and get the mavic mini to see what i could capture. shortly after taking off and flying toward the closest island, the sunlight broke through the clouds and i got these magical images. after some days with bad light or too much wind, i was blessed with being at the right spot to get perfect golden hour light. it’s beautiful when the divine plan unfolds quite brilliantly (and unexpectedly).

this is truly a lesson in listening to one's intuition. when I was driving over here, it was cloudy and I didn't know if I'd even see the sun set. when I arrived and walked out to the water, it was absolutely gorgeous, visually and in feeling and weather. this is like heaven on earth

if we want to live in a peaceful world, we must choose to live with a state of inner peace.  we do this by facing the parts of ourselves that we may not like and fully accepting them.  by healing our shadows and subconscious programming, we free up energy so that we may naturally live in peace.

remember to practice gratitude for all you have, especially in times when you may not be feeling too well. if you’re reading this, there are most likely many others whom are worse off than you, and regardless of any struggles you may be facing, you still have much to be grateful for in this experience of life.

sometimes the best things in life are the simplest.  relax, and allow yourself to take it all in.

this is a compilation of all 72 days of the journey i took from chicagoland to california and then to florida, from september 6th to november 16th in 2012. this is running at 5x the normal speed (otherwise it’d be around 19.5 hours long). it includes all of the following parts:

– from chicagoland to california [a five week adventure]
– life in california [three and a half weeks]
– from california to florida [just under two weeks]

[...]
just because you cannot see it does not mean it doesn't exist

far better to follow your heart & live authentically (and risk being seen as crazy by some with limited viewpoints), than to be trapped by conformity.  don't worry if some whom don't understand see you as a quack.. anyone's judgmentalism says much more about them than it does about you (and besides, a duck is versatile enough to walk, swim, and fly.. while many are stuck in a heard of lemmings unknowingly following mass media social programming to their own detriment).

also remember that often the line between crazy and genius is very thin.

if you are concerned about potential chaos that any darkness may inflict, remember that there are many more of us than them, and in our unity they stand no chance to cause any further harm [our division is what they need in order to retain power]. let us let go of any divisive thoughts and remain united together, from the place of our collective heart.  as we come from a place of compassion & unconditional love, and see that we have more in common than different, we will grow together in our collective humanity, and a beautiful new earth & reality will unfold before us.  remember that this outer world is a projection of our inner world.  if we want to experience life in a peaceful world, we must begin by choosing to live from a place of peace within.  each of our individual choices of peace & unity (over division) is a prayer.

in silence and stillness, one can discover the source of unconditional, divine love.

the conservation and preservation of nature is one of the most important things we can do today.

a simple shift of perspective is all we need to see the bigger picture. i’ve driven by here countless times and have never seen it quite like this.

all we need to do is go explore in nature to get a better understanding of life and our connection to the world.
