Nature-Speak

The Garden Of Pensiveness “Mother Nature is always speaking. She speaks in a language understood within the peaceful mind of the sincere observer.”  ~ Radhanath Swami ~ Art by Johanna Wright The beauty of language lies in the interpretation of it.  So how do you translate meaning from a bird’s lilting song or the hauntingContinue reading “Nature-Speak”

Whispers

For some time now I’ve been contemplating how to describe my ‘flowers theory’ of how Nature or ‘Spirit through Nature’ communicates to all other life on the planet. For example with flowers in general, there are the ‘geometric aspects of petal distribution’ that I’ve previously mentioned. There are the ‘wide variety of colors’ aspects perContinue reading “Whispers”

Cultivating Joy

ॐ Nature Heals, Nature Reveals ॐ “I don’t think anyone ‘finds’ joy. Rather, we cultivate it by searching for the preciousness of small things, the ordinary miracles, that strengthen our hearts so we can keep them open to what is difficult: delight in taking a shower or a slow walk that has no destination, inContinue reading “Cultivating Joy”

Miracles Everywhere

Ecological Consciousness “Around us, life bursts forth with miracles—a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles. Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears thatContinue reading “Miracles Everywhere”

The Quest for Meaning

As a voracious reader, when the library that I frequent had shut down for the second time due to local Covid 19 outbreaks, it forced me to review some oldies on my own book shelves.  My previous posts on self-realization etc., reminded me that one of my earliest experiences with that subject had to beContinue reading “The Quest for Meaning”

Happiness Is A Mindstate

Yearend assessments are often the necessary precursor to developing a New Year’s Resolution, so after determining first that I had certainly blown my 2020’s NY Resolution of “Having More Fun This Year!” my next year’s attempt would have to be scaled back a bit to account for our current and near-future situations with the pandemicContinue reading “Happiness Is A Mindstate”

The Wounded-Child Within

Love that picture above.   It expresses so clearly our inner need for closeness without all these additional words that I will soon add here. It shows our need to reach out to others and to be recognized and ACCEPTED by others—to truly be seen as a ‘being of substance’ within the structural framework ofContinue reading “The Wounded-Child Within”

The Card Said “WRITE”

It’s a difficult time now for everyone; and since I’m such a control freak, just sitting around feeling this collective sense of helplessness, is not within my capability. I’ve read all I could read. I’ve sat quietly—I’ve meditated.  Now I have to DO something—I have to act in some way. Be productive. And since I’mContinue reading “The Card Said “WRITE””

Being Kind

There is a lot going on right now—in the nation, in the world, in the cosmos, and especially within us.  Whether you attribute it all to Mercury in Retro or the end of the astrological year, or any other external force, or even to the world-wide fears/anger over a world seemingly out of control, asContinue reading “Being Kind”

Choosing Our Life Focus

You may find that over the course of your life-span there are times when you simply change directions for whatever reason, and when that happens, your focus in life also changes. Perhaps a person or a place or a job or a goal or a personal effort of some sort that had been your mainContinue reading “Choosing Our Life Focus”

Recognizing ‘Relativity’ in Your Life

When I mention relativity, I’m not thinking about all those family situations with oversized pot-luck dinners and raucous “discussions” on many subjects better left unmentioned during the gathering of the clan. Nor am I about to expound on Einstein’s physics theory, except peripherally, I suppose.  I’m actually referring to being able to acknowledge a senseContinue reading “Recognizing ‘Relativity’ in Your Life”
