Repost @matthewlicata: Never, ever underestimate the power of love. Even one moment of empathic, attuned contact can change a person forever. Please don’t forget that for many, they have never actually known the erupting power of unconditional holding.
While you may be burning with the need to talk a struggling friend out of their experience – overflowing with solutions, techniques, and secret spiritual processes – stay attuned… for this may not be what they are longing for. Listen carefully, not just to the words, but to what is emanating out of the center of their heart.
Through your presence, your eyes, your touch, and your language, hold them so that they are reminded that surging vulnerability, heartbreak, confusion, and uncertainty is not evidence that something is wrong with them. But is a reminder of how alive they are, and the realities of being a sensitive, open, naked human being on a star where love is present.
One of the greatest gifts you can give to another is that of a regulated, calm, soothing nervous system. Provide a permission field where they can come to rest, exactly as they are, without needing to be something different in order for you to stay close.
Together, you will be midwives of integration, weaving a holding space for the unfolding of what is longing to be met within them. The path is everywhere.

Why do we know so little about space? Why does it take so long to get to another planet? Why are we so small? What else is out there? How come we are the only planet with life? Cute pic though hey!

Цікаво, яка кількість дійсно стежить за моїми ілюстраціями🤔 Бо, зрештою, всі творчі люди є в тій чи іншій мірі марнославні 🙈 І для них важлива реакція на їх творіння, будь-яка)
I finally finished this and I’m so happy with it I have a thing for drawing girls in front of galaxies and I know this galaxy isn’t that great but I didn’t spend a lot of time on it idk how long this took but I really like it and I know the rocket ships are a bit ambitious and so is just colouring the sketch but I love how this turned out and might do something similar again. This is kind of a space version of my oc tulip but it’s not a lot like her at all so I’d categorize this character as something of her own. Sorry for rambling if you made it this for the first photo is with a filter the second one it’s without. #art#digitalart#galaxy#space#aesthetic#nasa#headphones#purple#sketch#notaquicksketch#shading#stars#planets#spaceships
The Clock Tower of Cardiff Castle (1873) designed by #WilliamBurges for the young 3rd Marquess of Bute.The theme of the batchelor apartments within, was the passage of Time through an abundant world ; in which Love must be allowed to flourish. Burges wove together in the ornamentation; strands of mythology, alchemy, gemology, astrology and heraldry, to be read for pleasure and edification like an immersive book.
On the exterior, stand seven planetary gods holding attributes, housed in a starry colonnade with four clock faces.Their feet overhang pedestals inscribed with their Latin names and carved with the appropriate emblem of their astrological house.Gold rays form escarbuncles behind them, suggesting the light of precious stones and stars.Facing South, youthful Sol is dressed in a stellar tunic presenting the disc of a moustachioed sunburst, while standing on Leo. Mars god of war, in lion-armour holds a spear with a penant of 'dawn over battlements' and a Scorpio shield, his support is Aries.Their original colours and lavish gilding was recently reinstated.
Above are the shields of Bute ancestors, left to right ; Herbert, Crichton, Stuart, Montague and Windsor (the Welsh estates came through the Earls of Pembroke).
The blue and silver chequer is the 'fesse' of the Stuart arms.The upper windows belong to the Summer Smoking Room and its gallery and a turret houses a spiral stair.The roof is topped by a crocket-finial, surmounted by a strawberry-leaf coronet and the Crichton banner of a rampant lion.
Carved in isolation on the North side is an oak : badge of the Stuart Clan and symbol of the royal 'Stewart' bloodline.The leaf and acorn had been used as a Jacobite emblem.
