The Great Bird

From the original story and encaustic painting

by Laara B. Rhine

Like the phoenix arising from the ashes,
the Great Bird returns to gather
the most basic element of physical existence

 Gathering these remnants of the past

initiates the transformation of the 'carbon residue' of life into the most durable, valuable material:


 Our inner diamond sparkles,
becomes strong, radiant and resilient
as we meet and move through
the challenges which confront us.

 In this way, each single facet of our own diamond
is perfectly shaped and cut by
the Master Diamond Cutter;
LIFE itself.


Give the Great Bird space
out of which to emerge from the old and worn
into the New Light Potential
of your own Soul’s Diamond.
