The Way to the Source

Eckhart says, “Even a stone, and more easily a flower or a bird, could show you the way back to God, to the Source, to yourself. When you look at it or hold it and let it be without imposing a word of mental label on it, a sense of awe, of wonder, arises within you. Its essence silently communicates itself to you and reflects your own essence back to you.”

Photographer Michele Penn explains how she was drawn to flowers through Eckhart’s teachings and through her own life experience. “This is what happened to me. Flowers brought me to my source. A sense of awe and wonder DID arise in me. My passion is capturing that moment of beauty in a flower and sharing it with the world. My passion is fuelled by the feedback I get from helping people everywhere to open their hearts and souls to the beauty of nature, so they are able to look within. My passion is more than floral art photography; it is about getting closer to the exquisite beauty and peace that is nature.”

    1. Thank you so much Sandra!I’m so glad you enjoyed my photographs. I really try to capture the “soul” of the flower 😉 I call them my “soul shots” Have a great day. Peace and love, Michele

  1. No sermon ever preached or scripture read ever, revealed God’s love to me as clearly and deeply as flowers. Thank you.

  2. Ever since I was little I have drawn to trees and rocks. I would wonder and still do what they got to be as a part of history. I wonder what the tree has witnessed during its life from a sampling to a old bare branch backless tree. I love to explore them with touch and sight. Love taking pics of them parts that stand out to me. Talk to them. Rocks, I have a few. My grandmother had a rock garden and one rock i would seek out at all visits. It had lots of interesting markings. When she left I went back to take that rock home with me. Another rock I own is from the north, the cuts and quarts poking out so beautiful. The smooth parts of days gone by with the ice age passing tumbling it smooth. I feel so at peace on walks exploring what the universe, God has created. I believe they are life.

    1. Rocks are beautiful too. It’s amazing if we just look close enough what we will see. I understand your love for rocks because it’s exactly the same for me with flowers. Peace and love, Michele Penn

  3. How can we get your very important message to the millions that would benefit? Please redo your book Power of Now in many languages and use professional voices. It was a little difficult to stumble thru the language differences. The medium is the message, boy that has a whole new message for me…carol.

  4. iIwould like very much to be able to comment on my own transformation in Spanish, my native tongue for your Spanish speaking followers. II am a Spanish certified court and conference translator an I follow the English site because I believe there’s not a site like this one in Spanish, is there one?
    Please let me know.
    Thank you,
    Inge

  5. I have done the same. I take shots myself and find others online and put them on my screensavers and derive such bliss from soaking in the lovely snapshots of the beautiful nature that is all over this planet.

    1. Good for you Suzanne! Great idea to use them as screensavers. I derive that same bliss from nature’s bounty!!! I have floral prints all throughout my home too 🙂 Peace and love, Michele Penn

  6. Michele’s flowers are absolutely intoxicating! I purchased a 48 x 36 limited edition print of hers and every time I look at it I feel my “state” change. I feel peaceful, the busy mind quiets down and I never tire of seeing how gorgeous a flower is through Michele’s photo lens.

    1. Thank you so much for your absolutely touching comments. I am so glad you are loving your large print!! It’s doing it’s job – making you feel peaceful every time you look at it. And, I’m especially happy that you’ve enjoyed seeing the flowers through my eye. Great success to you! Peace and love, Michele Penn

  7. I am amazed at each time I scroll through Michele’s flowers and how they come alive in my eyes. Stare at them long enough and you can almost imagine the beautiful essence they give off! Wonderful work!!
