“I am the daughter of Earth and Water,
And the nursling of the Sky;
I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores;
I change, but I cannot die.
For after the rain when with never a stain
The pavilion of Heaven is bare,
And the winds and sunbeams with their convex gleams
Build up the blue dome of air,
I silently laugh at my own cenotaph,
And out of the caverns of rain,
Like a child from the womb, like a ghost from the tomb,
I arise and unbuild it again.”
What a surprising and practical thing to say …. if only people would really hear it …
… the answer is not to turn inward, to retreat into competing factions, distrusting those who don’t look like you or worship the way you do, or don’t get their news from the same sources you do. We must end this uncivil war that pits red against blue, rural versus urban, conservative versus liberal. We can do this if we open our souls instead of hardening our hearts. If we show a little tolerance and humility, and if we’re willing to stand in the other person’s shoes, as my mom would say …. just for a moment, stand in their shoes. – President Biden 01/20/21
There are so many people who are suffering because too many either refuse to believe they can make a difference, or worse ….. shrug it off as ‘not their problem’. That, right there, is the closed heart.
We are all connected. We are all affected by all choices by all people, whether subtly or overtly.
What you put into the Universe … ultimately returns to you.
I hope that whatever is hurting you now will soon be healed. That you’ll no longer have to pretend you’re okay, you’ll just be okay. That healthy love like you’ve never experienced it will come into your life in all forms. That walking away from things that are hindering you will become easier. I hope that you always remember how important you are, how much you’re needed, and that you are enough. I pray that your worth and value never be questioned. That you’ll find peace, joy and abundance. Above all, I pray that in this moment, as you’re reading this, you know how amazingly wonderful you are and have always been.
Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate, or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. – Henry Miller
When shadow-work is neglected, the soul feels dry, brittle, like an empty vessel. Then, people suffer depression rather than embark on a fruitful descent. When shadow-work is denied, the soul feels banished, exiled from its habitats in the wilds of nature … But when shadow-work is attended to, the soul feels round, full, sated. When shadow-work is invited into a life, the soul feels welcomed, alive in the gardens, aroused in passion, awake in sacred things. – C. Zweig & S. Wolf
I love it when people make videos like this. There is so much that most people think is ‘truth’, when it really is mis-information, or rumors, or just exaggerated stories handed down through generations.
Spiders are extremely important for our environment. The help us. Yet people will just kill them out of repugnance and fear. They are not the enemy. Our fear is the true enemy. Be Love <3
