Here are a few more card designs
I have to share ....
BEAUTY
collage and art design

(Text on Card)
Beauty of the highest order
arises out of depths of realization,
out of Life itself,
it springs from a deep source within,
which bears the stamp of truth.
quote adapted from Sri Ram by me
FREEDOM

FIELDS OF ETERNITY
photo and digital-collage

(Poem on Card by charlie elkind)
FIELDS OF ETERNITY
I am no-where
I am no-one, but one
I seek something which cannot be touched,
cannot be held
cannot be seen.
It's always there
just out of reach,
just out of hearing
waiting for us all
to join, to rejoice
in a field of eternity.
PRAY FOR WORLD PEACE

Quote  from "Thoughts for Aspirants"

There cannot be Peace in the world
without Peace in our own hearts.

THE SEED POINT OF INDIVIDUAL
EXPRESSION

Quote  from "Thoughts for Aspirants"
by N. Sri Ram

(Text on Card)
Life is a universal energy,
but it always has an individual focus or center,
in which lies the seed of its
individual expression,
embodying the type of perfection
into which it can flower at that point.
THE LANGUAGE OF BEAUTY

Quote  from "Thoughts for Aspirants"

Art of every sort,
when it embodies Beauty,
speaks the language of an invisible order
in which each thing has
its own significant place.
TO BECOME TRANSLUCENT

Quote  from "Thoughts for Aspirants" by N. Sri Ram

We have to become translucent,

and bring about that harmony
between the inner and the outer,
the higher and the lower,
which is a condition of
true understanding and fitness.
THE LAW OF HARMONY

Even in the midst of discords and differences
there is the operation of a Law of Harmony
which ever seeks to restore
nature's disturbed equilibrium.
AWAKENING TO LIFE'S UNITY

in every living form,
in the least living thing.
