“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.” – Dale Carnegie

Our spiritual side
“Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.” – Seymour Miller & Jill Jackson
To be spiritual today does not necessarily mean being part of an organised religion – although it can be. Spiritual simply means those things that relate to the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things.
Here, we’ve included spiritual photography you might like to include in a room you have reserved for practicing private prayer, meditation, yoga or simply quiet reflection.
