All creativity begins in the imagination. So we invite you to come, exercise your imagination as you scroll down to view Mother Natures wonders in our Monument Valley National Monument and Grand Canyon National Park. You may want to look for interesting features in your own State, County and local parks. Only as a little child, who is open to newness, wonder, opportunity and imagination, may you experience the state of heaven on earth. Too often we get caught up in the exclusive use of our straight line logic, to the exclusion of our equally valuable, though sometimes circuitous, imagination. The Greeks saw the mind as having two parts; the imagination that leads to intuition and invention and the logic which leads us to ideas,"facts" and things. It is in the use of both of these portions of divine mind that life comes fully ALIVE! We invite you to enjoy the images below ... and let your imagination take you places.
Bringing your Imagination to Light
Images of Monument Valley
When you come to Monument Valley National Monument you have already changed states; physically and possibly psychologocally as well as spiritually. While the entry road comes from Utah, you can only see the Monuments in Arizona. This journey is upon a dirt road that many tourists have traveled, coming from all over the world to enjoy. Your imagination is now riding with you as we take this journey together.
Two Mittens, Left and Right
One of the first sights you see as you enter the park are The Mittens, both right and left, properly arranged. These rock mittens were originally laid down in mud and clay, then formed by pressure and heat to form the rocks. On time water, sun and wind sculpted the stone into what you see today. <== Click on the picture to your left to enlarge the view.
The next sight you will see along your path is called Elephant Rock, called that because with the aid of your imagination you may see the shape of an elephant here. Click on the image to the right to enjoy a larger elephant. ==>
The Three Sisters
The Three Sisters stand tall, next to the large stone to our right. As these stone statues are millions of years old, you may notice a few wrinkles. <== Click on this image to get a better view. You may also want to scroll down to compare the Three Sisters to the Three Nuns in Sedona.
Gazing upward, as we stopped near the half way point in our tour of Monument Valley (with our French relatives), I saw a huge prehistoric crocodile head in the stone work above. Others saw an elephant, yet others see the shadow of a dog. What animals do you see? And, are they meeting together? If so, what are they together for? Click on the image to better view these animals carved from stone by Mother Nature and Father God. ==> Now what do you see? Use your imagination. Have fun with this, let your inner child out to play. And while you're at it, why not fantasize a little. Feel the joy of life again, it's a good way to help heal your mind, body and soul.
Meeting of the Prehistoric Animals
Spires and Obelisks stand on the horizon as tourists stop to wonder
Inspiring Spires and an Obelisk are in this view of Monument Valley. Beyond these are miles of imagination. Let your imagination fly beyond the confines of your every day reality. There are billions of realities, each completely valid in its own context. <== Click on the image to enlarge your view. When you are ready, you can always come back to our consensus realities, that seem to be one and yet are many. Where ever you go, you are there. However "here" is always waiting for you.
Driving back to where we started, what to my wondering eyes did I see, but a rock perfectly balanced on very little rock and soil below it. This is a good lesson in standing your ground in balance, realizing both your yin and yang to center. Meditation is a good way for us humans to maintain our balance. Click on this image to enlarge it. ==> And behind the rock was the silhouette of an Indian.
A "HooDoo" rock Perfectly Balanced in Nature
An Indian Chief sits above and behind Balancing Rock, surveying his domain
This Indian (Guide) sits tall above much of life as we know it. He is wise and has been there a long time, learning what he needs to learn, just by simply "being". He knows that life comes to him in honor and love, thus he treats life the same way. <== Click on this image to get a closer view.
As mentioned when we began this trip through Monument Valley, what you see now started out with overflowing mud banks, rushes of water and then dry seasons. Much time has passed. Thus, what you now see is this area in one of its dry states. But, as you can also see, life still abounds ... life more adapted to dry climates. ==> Click on this image and enjoy more of Natures Wonders. ==> SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE SIGHTS AND WONDERS
Life Abounds, even in seeming desolation
Hands in front of faces?
This picture was r=taken as the sun is about to set on Monument Valley. Thus, at the end of the day, you can see how these rocks speak no evil, hear no evil and see no evil, much as it would be good for humans to do/ We can learn great lessons from nature, and have over time. <== Please click on Image to enlarge it.
Imagine the elders of Easter Island, the "Long Ears" coming to this part of the world. What magic and what wisdom would they bring? Though shrouded in the darkness of shadows at the end of each day, this stone head has much to reveal from its long past. Click on this image to see it enlarged ==>
A monument to inspire us to standing tall, face the world as it is, and accept it all in Loving Allowance

Sunset at the Grand Canyon from Hopi Point - in April.
Without the sun there would be no life as we know it! All life is transformed and transfixed by fire. The Fire Element creates change. At the end of the day there is the "evening" as the light merges and evens with the dark. Light radiates and is absorbed by the physical world and the darkness, as they become the density of that light. During every day, light reveals newness and freshness in our world. <== Click on this image to reveal more about why the Ancient Egyptians honored the sun.
After the sun physically sets below the horizon, the afterglow remains. Shown here are the warm glowing colors of a day well spent. If you want to enjoy the sunset at Hopi Point, the bus will take you back to its starting point, even if you arrive in darkness. Click on this picture to enjoy its full impact. ==>
Before you leave the Grand Canyon you may want to take in the energies of the warm afterglow of a sunset, at Hopi Point
Rev, John and Martine with Spirit at the Grand Canyon, April 2009
Pictured here are some world travelers enjoying the wonders of Father God, Mother Nature and all of their abundant energies, both physical and non-physical. Travel is a wonderful way to expand your horizons and deepen your grasp of "what it's all about". According to the Sleeping Prophet, Edgar Cayce, Jesus loved to travel, see how cultures functioned, understand their language and meet people, all of whom he loved. You might like to expand your horizons and discover entirely new worlds and realities. <== Click on this picture to see more of our world.
