"we're just one solitary soul, each of us weathering our own storms. but we all have one love inside our true self. the pier has the love of the ocean. the lone fisherman has his love of fishing. the rain in the clouds loves the rainbow. and the flowers love the blue skies full of sunshine after the storm. and even a storm has a love, the love of releasing all his energy back to mother earth...and when storms pass, love always remains"― bodhinku, one love
"the sunshine never looked better until the storm clouds embellished her existence"― anonymous
"when there is great pain, there are only three rules: not to push the pain away, not to try to understand it, and not to indulge in it...make yourself as open as a pier caught in a storm. let the storm bend you at its will, do not resist it, do not argue with it either- how could one argue with the wind and the rain?...and never ever feel sorry for yourself" ― muriel maufroy, rumi's daughter
"all someone needs is some one, and sometimes all you need is one time" ― bodhinku, one
my choice of a truly beautiful tune to listen to accompany my blog today, is it the absolutely perfect song full of the meaning i wish for my impression today to give, especially with us all finding ourselves mired in these crazy stormy times, as we are all trying to walk our path through to the otherside...almost everyone has heard this song and probably know it by heart, with this song as the one tune that has really become a symbol of bob marley and the reggae movement he popularized: "one love" by bob marley...(just click on any of words in the blue links to listen to the song)...this song is just absolutely perfect with its germane lyrics so applicable for our times today...
"one love, one heart, let's get together and feel alright (hear the children crying). one love (hear the children crying), one heart (sayin') give thanks and praise to the lord and i will feel alright (sayin'). let's get together and feel alright (whoa whoa whoa whoa). let them all pass, all their dirty remarks (one love). there is one question i'd really love to ask (one heart). is there a place for the hopeless sinners who has hurt all mankind just to save his own (believe)? one love (what about one heart), one heart (what about love). let's get together and feel alright (as it was in the beginning). one love (so shall it be in the end). one heart (alright), give thanks and praise to the lord and i will feel alright. let's get together and feel alright (one more thing). let's get together to fight this holy armageddon (one love), so when the man come, there will be no no doom (one song). have pity on those whose chances grows thinner. there ain't no hiding place from the father of creation (sayin')...one love (what about one heart). one heart (what about love), let's get together and feel alright (i'm pleading to mankind). one love (what about one heart), one heart (oh oh), give thanks and praise to the lord and i will feel alright. let's get together and feel alright (give thanks and praise to the lord and i will feel alright)" ― bob marley, one love
here is also another song to give listen...it's very pertinent, timely, and appropriate to the current situation of social and racial unrest in the united states right now...it was written and sung by my absolute favorite reggae artist, ziggy marley (bob marley's eldest son): "still the storms" by ziggy marley...(just click on any of words in the blue links to listen to the song)...this song is just absolutely perfect with its germane lyrics so applicable for our times today...
"with the world so loud, who's gonna hear, when i cry in this fog of war for black gold, one diamond sold, one life got stole. society built on slavery, for me it was not so long ago. you may forget, but i still know...still the storms come, from the coast of west africa (still the storms come, from the coast of west africa). anger and rage, thunder and lightning, spirits unrest, they looking for justice...still the storms come, from the coast of west africa (still the storms come, from the coast of west africa). flood of tears rise, for stories untold, a debt to be paid, hey don't you know. they're heroes, and are my enemies, for one man's profit is another man's loss. and I see their faces in stone and steel with eyes so proud, oh i wish they could feel, for i am come with the chain and ball to shatter your images, and break down these walls. so this day may be bright and free from the shadows of giants in the light. i'm out of my mind. eternity is not enough for me to forget, and my children's children, you will regret. for i warn you of a time when empires fall, and the lowly will be lifted hey rule them all. but vengeance is no glory, hate is no pay, truth is my call and peace is my way...so i will endure, through these hard times, while i am neglected and paid no mind... eternity is not enough for me to forget, and my children's children, you will regret. for i warn you of a time when empires fall, and the lowly will be lifted hey rule them all. but vengeance is no glory, hate is no pay, truth is my call and peace is my way...so i will endure, through these hard times, while i am neglected and paid no mind" ― ziggy marley, still the storms
"there is the lesson of the storm...do not ignore the incoming storm, be prepared for whatever it brings...but just try to look past the storm towards the far off horizon, where the light will break on through first, focus there, and love will open up to shine on you again" ― bodhinku, lesson of the storm
"and who can be love? certainly, if you are not aware of who you are, you cannot be love. you will be fear. fear is just the opposite of love. remember, hate is not the opposite of love, as people think. hate is love standing upside down, it is not the opposite of love. the real opposite of love is fear. in love one expands, in fear one shrinks. in fear one becomes closed, in love one opens. in fear one doubts, in love one trusts. in fear one is left lonely. in love one disappears; hence there is no question of loneliness at all. when one is not, how can one be lonely? then these trees and the birds and the clouds and the sun and the stars are all within you. love is when you have known your inner sky" ― osho, the joy of living dangerously
"since time began, people have equated sunshine with positivity and happiness, the idea of a brighter day being better, or the idea that clear blue skies always fill up with sunshine following a storm...until now, i never gave it much thought, but now i know why...you are my sunshine. you are my brighter day...with my sunshine i am happy. the clouds part and you warm me with all the love in the world. the one love, what more is there?" ― bodhinku, sunshine is love
the impression i wish to give today with this image is the idea that every approaching storm will eventually pass, and your one love will always remain...however, we each have to weather our own storms. and right now this is especially befitting in these crazy stormy times as we are all trying to find our own path through to the otherside. but remember, the storms pass. they always pass, always. and during the storm, we always have the one love inside each of us to help us, support us, be one with us, and let us see past the storm to sunnier days...
we're just one solitary soul, each of us weathering our own storms. but we all have one love inside our true self. the pier pictured here has the love of the ocean. the lone fisherman on this pier has his love of fishing. and the rain in the clouds loves the rainbow. and the flowers love the blue skies full of sunshine after the storm. even storms have a love, the love of releasing all their energy back to mother earth...and when storms pass, love always remains...remember that, for that is the only real truth of which i am absolutely full of certainty
there are a few more quotes from bodhinku to deeper realize this meaning, because honestly, both the mountains and the stars are truly written inside each of us, we just need to see that and believe in ourselves...
"jalaluddin rumi one said: "every story is us"...but our story does not really start until you end that which is holding us back" ― bodhinku, holding us back
"just remember that no matter what, there's always a light somewhere behind the clouds, waiting and ready to show itself" ― bodhinku, light waiting
"love can sometimes achieve the impossible, just like light can sometimes shine through a rainstorm of clouds" ― bodhinku, love and light
"the silence of the thick clouds gave the darkness and the shadows such power, and simultaneously created a sanctum for the breaking light to glow and be free" ― bodhinku, light's sanctum
"paradise is not found on a tropical beach under palm trees. paradise is instead found standing side by side in tandem with your lover through both thick and thin, just like two palm trees still standing though a windy hurricane together, and still standing side by side to see the calming colorful sunset after the storm finally passes" ― bodhinku, lovers paradise
"i just need
somebody to hold.
someone to be held by.
to be treasured by a treasure
and weather all storms.
and trust everything
is going to be alright
as the rainbows appear" ― bodhinku, somebody
"equally in the words of a storm or a loving sunlight: i don't need the attention of millions, i haven't chosen life in the spotlight...so, shall we dance, talk, or just be?" ― bodhinku, shall we dance?
"you see that the dark flame up ahead lighting the mist? that is me, in the shadows of the storm, longing for you" ― bodhinku, storm shadows
"and with this storm coming it, it was a crazy beautiful sunrise this morning full of so many pretty pastel colors you love: pink, yellow, powder blue, apricot, soft purple...it was so pretty, but just missing one huge thing for me to make one of the most beautiful sunrises ever, it was missing you"― bodhinku, colors missing you
STORY BEHIND THE IMPRESSION
"time continues to relentlessly go by, stop wasting it...that one love is deep inside you, always has been there, forever will be, it cannot be denied, so embrace it now! ...the universe sends you signs to constantly be of certainty with that very fact of concourse...so, stop putting it off, act now, and be one with your one love..." ― bodhinku, one love always
pictured here is the imperial beach pier with an incoming pacific storm approaching overhead in the morning...this beautiful pier is located about 15 miles south of san diego, closer to the mexican border...
i love morning images at the beach, the colors are softer, less bold than a sunset with its yellows reds and oranges...the morning light is much more mellow with cooling blue and violet color wavelengths in the air...and there is seldom anyone out early, and on this day there was just me, the birdies, and this lonely solitary fisherman on the pier (look closely, you can see him clearly)
"you have breathed new life into me...
after this storm surrounding us
i have become your sunshine
and also your shadow
my soul is screaming in ecstasy
every fiber of my being
is raining down in love
with you in the light" ― jalaluddin rumi, in the arms of the beloved
this next song selection is another favorite of mine, poignantly familiar with hard biting lyrics full of essence by one of my favorite bands of all time..."one" by u2...(just click on any of words in the blue links to listen to the song)...
"is it getting better? or do you feel the same? will it make it easier on you now that you got someone to blame? you say one love, one life (one life), it's one need in the night. one love (one love), get to share it. leaves you darling, if you don't care for it...did I disappoint you? or leave a bad taste in your mouth? you act like you never had love and you want me to go without. well it's too late, tonight, to drag the past out into the light. we're one, but we're not the same. we get to carry each other, carry each other...one, one, one, one...have you come here for forgiveness? have you come to raise the dead? have you come here to play jesus to the lepers in your head? well, did i ask too much, more than a lot? you gave me nothing, now it's all i got. we're one, but we're not the same, see we hurt each other, then we do it again...you say love is a temple, love is a higher law. love is a temple, love is a higher law. you ask me of me to enter, but then you make me crawl, and i can't keep holding on to what you got, 'cause all you got is hurt. one love. one blood. one life. you got to do what you should. one life with each other. sisters and my brothers, one life. but we're not the same. we get to carry each other, carry each other...one, one, one, one...ne love, one life" ― u2, one
"i'm the one, natural one, make it easy...we can take it inside where i can love how i like if my woman, whatever keeps me high. yeah, we can take it good and loose on an endless spree, good because we made it and when momma's not around there's no telling what we'll do when we're free...i'm the one natural one, make it easy, we can take it inside i can have it cause i act like i love it, it's a matter of pride. yeah, we can take it. good excuse on an endless spree, good because we made it...your woman's falling down, you may as well crash with me when i'm numb natural one, it's the one natural one there's no telling what we'll do when we're free...when i'm numb, natural one, there's no telling what we'll do when we're free...it's the one natural one that you may as well crash with me when i'm numb, natural one. there's no telling what we'll do when we're free, it's the one natural one...there's no telling what we'll do when we're free when i'm numb natural one...there's no telling what we'll do when we're free, it's the one natural one that you may as well crash with me" ― the folk implosion, natural one

"sex is a powerful intent to create: the creation of pleasure, creation of love, and ultimately the creation of life. it connects and syncs two beings emotionally, physically, and mentally and is one of the strongest expressions of love that exists in this world" ― siddhartha gautama buddha, the dhammapada

“five important questions to ask yourself...
1. can you coax your mind from its wandering and keep to the original oneness?
2. can you cleanse your inner vision until you see nothing but the light?
3. can you love people and lead them without imposing your will?
4. can you deal with the most vital matters by letting events take their course?
5. can you step back from your own mind and thus understand all things?" ― lao tzu, tao te ching
“...and it is because of a great love, one is courageous” ― lao tzu, tao te ching

"her soul was utterly captivating. a warm stormy day dying to be danced in"―beau taplin
"a soulmate is a meeting of mind, spirit and body with someone whose strengths, flaws and energy perfectly complement your own. it is steady ground, a shelter in a storm, a point on a map when you are wayward and lost—the promise of a place to come home to for as long as you are here in the world"― beau taplin
"i am the sunshine that will burn you.
i am the storm that makes you weak…
i am the rain washing away the dust from your soul…
i am in your reflection, i am your shadow…
your heart whispers my name in every beat…
every word you say, echoes my name…" ― c. ara campbell
"thank you for loving that i am unapologetically strong, wild and fiercely free and for never trying to tame me. trying to clip my wings would kill me faster than a thousand daggers ever could. thank you for riding with me during all the storms that threaten our shores. thank you for waiting for me through all these desperate times of longing. and i know being present with what’s going on isn’t always a picnic, and thank you for staying hungry for our love, i thank you for valuing this place and being here with me now" ― c. ara campbell
"i am one with my body, my spirit, my heart and my mind i nourish myself and am nourished by the universe i am connected deeply to the earth and her medicine i am able to withstand all storms i am calm, centered and peaceful i am at peace with the world surrounding me i invite wellbeing and balance into my sacred space my home is my sanctuary i am fully supported by the universe in all ways everything that i desire is making its way to me i am blessed. i am loved. i am safe"― c. ara campbell, affirmations

because i love you, love, in fire and in blood" ― pablo neruda, 100 love sonnets

"it was the pure language of the world. it required no explanation, just as the universe needs none as it travels through endless time. what the boy felt at that moment was that he was in the presence of the only woman in his life, and that, with no need for words, she recognized the same thing. he was more certain of it than of anything in the world. he had been told by his parents and grandparents that he must fall in love and really know a person before becoming committed. but maybe people who felt that way had never learned the universal language. because, when you know that language, it's easy to understand that someone in the world awaits you, whether it's in the middle of the desert or in the middle of some great storm. and when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant. there is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. it is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world. without such love, one's dreams would have no meaning" ― paulo coelho, the alchemist
"love is not a relationship, love is a state of being; it has nothing to do with anybody else. one is not "in love", one is love. and of course when one is love, one is in love–but that is an outcome, a by-product, that is not the source. the source is that one is love" ― osho, the secret of secrets
"the reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected. maybe they always have been and will be. maybe we've lived a thousand lives before this one and in each of them we've found each other. and maybe each time, we've been forced apart for the same reasons. that means that this goodbye is both a goodbye for the past ten thousand years and a prelude to what will come" ― nicholas sparks, the notebook
"time is a tree (this life one leaf)
but love is the sky and i am for you
just so long and long enough" ― e. e. cummings
"i am doing my very best to make every effort because i am longing so much to make beautiful things. but beautiful things mean painstaking work, disappointment, and perseverance" ― vincent van gogh, letters to theo
"i wanna sing you a sunrise and be the dawn i know will move you. i'd like to be the strings on your guitar, touch me and play what you feel, love, let your music be mine, sing while i harmonize, let your melodies fly in my direction and take me to your paradise on a musical ride...i'm in love with your music, baby, you're music to my eyes"― lady gaga and bradley cooper
"if people did not love one another, i really don't see what use there would be in having flowers bloom after a storm" ― victor hugo, les miserables
"what a great thing, to be loved! what a greater thing still, to love! the heart becomes heroic though passion…if no one loved, the sun would go out" ― victor hugo, les miserables
“i don't like feeling sorry for myself. that's not who i am. and most of the time, i don't feel that way. instead, i am grateful for having at least found you. we could have flashed by one another like two pieces of cosmic dust....god or the universe or whatever one chooses to label the great systems of balance and order does not recognize earth-time. to the universe, four days is no different than four billion light years. i try to keep that in mind....but, i am, after all, a man. and all the philosophic rationalizations i can conjure up do not keep me from wanting you, every day, every moment, the merciless wail of time, of all the time i can never spend with you, deep within my head....i love you, profoundly and completely. and i always will...this kind of certainty comes but once in a lifetime" ― robert kincaid, the bridges of madison county
"perhaps love is like a resting place, a shelter from the storm. it exists to give you comfort, it is there to keep you warm, it is the sunshine of your life, and in those times of trouble when you are most alone, the memory of love will bring you home" ― john denver, take me home
"this person who is so special to you. you think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. you open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. you find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. you find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life" ― bob marley, lovers
"love the life you live...live the life you love" ― bob marley
"nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. the winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves..." ― john muir, the mountains of california

"if she just lets him into her world, all the way in, she gets a man who will love her completely and faithfully. she gets a man who will not only save her life, but lay down his own to keep her safe. he will provide for her no matter the cost, he will shelter her against all storms that come their way, he will be the one to bring a smile to her face when no one else can. she gets a friend, a lover, a mate, the only man in this world who can complete her and give her the other half of her soul" ― quinn loftis, blood rites
"if you want your loved ones to be happy, you must learn to understand their sufferings and their aspirations. when you understand, you will know how to relieve their sufferings and how to help them fulfill their aspirations. that is true love. kif you only want your loved ones to follow your own ideas and you remain ignorant of their needs, it is not truly love. it is only a desire to possess another and attempt to fulfill your own needs, which cannot be fulfilled in that way, ever"― thich nhat hanh, old path white clouds
"we all are so deeply interconnected; we have no option but to love all. be kind and do good for any one and that will be reflected. the ripples of the kind heart are the highest blessings of the universe" ― amit ray, peace bliss beauty and truth
"like light...in light, lit through by light, transformed into light. like the lens which disappears in the light it focuses...like light." ― dag hammarskjold, markings
"embrace your shadow self...shadows give depth and dimension to life. believe in embracing your duality, in learning to let darkness and light peacefully co-exist, as illumination" ― jaeda dewalt, shades of the soul
"only the person who has experienced light and darkness, chaos and sanctum, storm and calm, rise and fall, only that person has truly experienced life" ― stefan zweig, the world of yesterday

they say that miracles are never ceasin'
and every single soul needs a little releasin'
here i am just waiting for this storm to pass me by.
that's why, baby you're the one i want to be with
when the sun goes down....
you're the one i want to be with
when the sun goes down...
that's the sound of sunshine coming down..." ― micheal franti, the sound of sunshine
"the storms are raging on the rolling sea and on the highway of regret. the winds of change are blowing wild and free. you ain't seen nothing like me yet. man, i could make you happy, make your dreams come true. there's nothing that i wouldn't do...go to the ends of this earth for you to make you feel my love, oh yes, to make you feel my love" ― bob dylan, make you feel love
"the grief you cry out from draws you toward union. your pure sadness that wants help is the secret cup. listen to the moan of a dog for its master. that whining is the connection. there are love dogs no one knows the names of. give your life to be one of them" ― jalaluddin rumi, hush don't say anything to god
"i desire you more than food and drink...my body, my senses, my mind, each hunger for your taste. i can sense your presence in my heart although you belong to someone else. i wait with silent passion for one gesture, one glance from you" ― jalaluddin rumi, in the arms of the beloved
"from the beginning of my life i have been looking for your face but today i have seen it. today i have seen the charm, the beauty, the unfathomable grace of the face that i was looking for...today i have found you and those who laughed and scorned me yesterday are sorry that they were not looking as i did...i am bewildered by the magnificence of your beauty, both inside and out, and wish to see you with a hundred eyes a hundred times over. my heart has burned with passion and has searched forever for this wondrous beauty that i now behold...i am ashamed to call this love human and afraid of divinity to call it divine...your fragrant breath like the morning breeze has come to the stillness of the garden. you have breathed new life into me. i have become your sunshine and also your shadow...my soul is screaming in ecstasy, every single fiber of my being is in love with you...your effulgence has lit a fire in my heart and you have made radiant for me the earth and sky...my arrow of love has arrived at the target. i am in the house of mercy and my heart is a place of prayer at your feet" ― jalaluddin rumi, hush don't say anything to god
"every approaching storm will eventually pass, and your one love will always remain...however, we each have to weather our own storms. and right now this is especially befitting in these crazy stormy times as we are all trying to find our own path through to the otherside. but remember, the storms pass. they always pass, always. and during the storm, we always have the one love inside each of us to help us, support us, be one with us, and let us see past the storm to sunnier days... " ― bodhinku, storms will always pass
the impression which you see here is a single exposure composition...in my photography i always use filters to create longer exposure effects and to balance the light in my composition in camera...i often use as many as four filters at time, and i always use at least one filter...
for this exposure of imperial beach pier with an approaching pacific storm incoming, to get the effects and balance and saturation i was looking for, i used two filters...for this, i chose to use the magnetic1.8nd progrey aurora filter (and progrey g-120z holder) to allow for a much longer exposure (6 stops) to blur the waves in the ocean as well as clouds in the sky a tad bit, making them softer, and allow for more saturation of the red/yellow in the pier lights and blues in the clouds and waves to be present in the image...plus in combination with the 0.9gnd progrey g120 aurora filter to help balance in-camera overall the image the way i envisioned it, as the sky was much more brighter, about 3 stops brighter than the rest of the darker parts, especially the darker shadows under the pier in the image composition...
i wish to openly thank my sponsors who have always supported me through both the good and bad times...for truly this long exposure impression would not be possible without the use of my trusty dolica tripodsin combination with theprogreyusa filters which i use with every photo i take...
"she once said, "we are sunshine", but that is not true, not at all...for she is the true sunshine, i am just the dark stormy clouds waiting for the sunshine to break on through me"― bodhinku, break on through
"contemplate without thinking. stop the world. slow down everything. shut off the noise. relax. seize this moment. reconnect. feel and sense what surrounds you. listen to all the colors of light that envelope you. see the melody and harmony that floats about unnoticed. taste the solitude of all this wonderment. smell the beautiful silence. now discover your peaceful serenity. then, reach out and touch your faith with all your senses. this is my world. awaken!" ― bodhinku, my world
