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.

go for a walk in nature and see what you might notice that you’ve never noticed before. or see how you can perceive something you’ve always seen, but in a new way. relax, widen back, and take it all in.

do not judge, criticize, or condemn anyone whom might have a different belief than you, regardless of how bad it may seem.  others' views, beliefs, and actions are merely a product of where one is in consciousness, and one can only do as good as they can given their level of consciousness.  if any given level of consciousness appears to not be helpful to others or the world, rather than use your energy blaming those whom don't know any better, direct your focus, attention, and energy towards helping more & more people (including yourself) heal, awaken, and continue to raise the overall level of consciousness. through our collective growth we will transform human consciousness and create a beautiful new earth where we all live as one, in peace & perfect harmony with each other and the planet. (also remember that the reflection they played, regardless of how bad or wrong it was, may have been exactly what you or another needed in order to grow to higher levels of consciousness)

i redid these shots that i had previously posted (using the low res preview images) on instagram. this was the second time i intentionally took the dji mavic mini out to shoot video clips [during the first few weeks i had it, other than a couple of test videos clips, i only shot photos]. it was windy and they’re not perfect, but a good example of how i’d like some of my work to look.

it is up to us to choose to live in harmony with the planet. by collectively changing our relationship with earth, we’ll create a healthier world where both humanity and nature can thrive.

#nature #goldenhour #water #river #aerial #flying #dji #mavic #mini #rc #quadcopter #drone #aerialphotography #dronephotography #mavicmini #aerialvideo #dronevideo #birdseyeview #lookingdown #fromabove #sunset .. low res preview video clips sped up (some by a lot) to fit in #instagram sixty second limit, with trimming and filters applied in dji #fly app.

if some things in life aren’t as you prefer, rather than dwelling in the frustration or giving energy toward fighting what you don’t want, direct your focus toward visualizing & creating what you do want. if it’s difficult to do this at first, spend time realizing how much in life you can be grateful for. celebrate these and the good that you do enjoy. this simple shift in energy will raise your vibration, and you may soon forget about what was bothering you (and the very thing you didn’t like may have transformed into something more aligned with what you desire). a shift in perspective can be quite powerful, even miraculous at times.

everything in this reality is only as solid or fluid as we allow it to be.  we solidify something by giving it attention, energy, thought, or belief.  as we let go of attachment to something, by no longer giving it attention, energy, thought, or belief (conscious or subconscious), we allow for it to change.  it is in this letting go of control that we re-gain our energy & power to focus on creating what we do desire.

it is time to let go of all fears of uncertainty, worries of survival, and needing for things to be a certain way (or how they used to be). as we let go of attachments we step into the present moment, and discover the beauty, peace, and perfection that is already here & now.  in freeing ourselves of fear & control, we realize how light we feel, without the past burdens we had been carrying with us everywhere we went.  with our new found energy, we can collectively meditate, pray, and create a new earth in which everyone lives in peace & perfect harmony with each other & the planet.  in this vision for a new earth, so many (if not all) of our individual struggles will cease to exist.

#nature #water #aerial #park #flying #dji #mavic #mini #rc #quadcopter #drone #lookingdown #fromabove #aerialvideo #dronevideo #mavicmini #earth .. looks like i’ll have to share the best parts of this flight another time after i download the sd card (as the old phone only cached the very end of the video preview)
let us take some time each day to sit quietly and see the new earth we wish to create.  visualize a peaceful world, one where all of humanity lives in perfect harmony with the earth, and where everyone experiences perfect health, divine love, peace, abundance, and joy.

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
one last clip from today’s flight. i’d like to do these again in better light and when it’s not as windy so i can fly higher without the strong wind warning.

if you're feeling stuck in life, often all you need is a new perspective.  if you've been looking at life a certain way (or through the viewpoint of a certain teacher, leader, influencer, etc), simply exploring the perspective of another may open your eyes to what you need to see or hear (and the new perspective may come from a source you didn't necessarily expect.. simply follow your heart and intuition, and you'll be guided along to whatever you need to see, learn, or experience). in repeatedly hearing the same underlying message in the same ways, it may become dull and no longer effective.  hearing someone else who's essentially saying the same thing you've already heard, but using different words or a new vantagepoint, may be exactly what allows you to open your eyes and heart to the message you need to hear and feel.  with anything in life, its good to take a break from what you're doing if you're doing it all the time.  time away from a project, goal, practice, or everyday life will allow you to explore other possibilities and create the space in which you can start over (as you feel called to) from a more energized place.

sometimes all we need to do is simply stop, relax, and enjoy the breeze. being outdoors in nature can be quite healing.

learn to step out of your mind, and into your heart. this is the spiritual journey.

if you're struggling with how to spend all the free time you have, learn to sit quietly and embrace the silence.

[from the inner stillness inspiration arises.  and once you're able to face yourself and become comfortable with doing nothing, you'll discover a great joy and deep sense of peace in the quiet solitude]

#sunset #water #beach #goldenhour #gulf #nature #clearwaterbeach #florida #meditation #peace #inspiration #silence #flying #dji #mavic #mini #rc #quadcopter #drone #aerial #fromabove #aerialvideo #dronevideo .. looks like #mavicmini flew pretty steady, despite getting high wind warnings in sport mode at only 70' altitude
if its uncomfortable to sit in silence, learn to embrace whatever it is you're feeling and you'll soon discover you no longer need the distractions you once sought.  it can help to go for a quiet walk in nature or begin practicing a form of meditation where you continually bring your focus back to your breathe (or a mantra) whenever your attention wanders.

#yesterday #beach #water #aerial #sand #island #nature #afternoon #goldenhour #flying #dji #mavic #mini #rc #quadcopter #drone #aerialphotography #dronephotography #aerialvideo #dronevideo #lookingdown #fromabove #birdseyeview .. a few quick previews of video clips i shot yesterday at #clearwaterbeach #florida. these were trimmed with filters applied in the dji fly app (which works better than doing so in the instagram app). no tone adjustments or anything else was done to the low resolution videos (these were the backup copies that the app saves over wifi during the flight, rather than downloading the big original files from the sd card), other than speeding up 2 or 3 of them by 1.5x or 2x so they could fit within the 60 second instagram limit. i may stop posting to instagram as facebook is deprecating the old api that allowed me to automatically download all my posts to my website. i may have a workaround, though if it doesn’t work, look for new content on my website instead of here.
