Get a pretty package where even your name and address have been turned into art.
Find a lovely, inspiring card inside with beautiful words.
And a luxurious looking package as well.
Open it up and find a book (the original bow was far nicer but I had to look at it as soon as I opened it...)
Open the book and it expands!
Read the beautiful words and admire the lines and the colours and the textures.....
I can't do this fantastic book justice with my camera and scanner. Believe me, as good as it looks here, it is even more lovely in the flesh. The pages glint with metallic swirls. The covers have a lovely handmade paper sort of texture to them. And of course, there was no way I was going to bend it to make it easier to scan....
The words in full are....
each day in itself brings with it an eternity
everything on earth is being continuously transformed because the earth is alive and it has a soul. We are part of that soul, so we rarely recognise that it is working for us.
remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.
if what one finds is of pure matter it will never spoil and you can always come back. If what you found was only a moment of light like the explosion of a star you would find nothing on your return.
listen to your heart it knows all things because it came from the soul of the world and it will one day return there.
and the other side...
from the alchemist paulo coelho
the soul of the world is nourished by peoples happiness... to realise ones destiny is a persons only real obligation.
...an when you want something all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it.
never stop dreaming follow the omens
intuition... a sudden immersion of the soul into yhe universal current of life where the histories of all people are connected and we are able to know everything because it is all written there
