Summer, fall, winter, spring,
The seasons rotate as each brings
Its special beauty to this Earth of ours.
Winter’s snow and summer’s flowers;
Frozen rivers will flow come spring,
There is a renewal of everything.

MBG: 3 Mindfulness Practices You Can Do With Your Kids

I remember it well. I was sitting at my family’s altar as my mom wore a monk’s robe, lighting incense and dedicating her stillness and silence to our Vietnamese ancestors. Meditation was an integral piece of my childhood. Needless to say, I didn’t have a conventional upbringing, at least not when it comes to spirituality

Birds & Blooms: The Backyard Benefits of a Moon Garden

Most of us notice how gorgeous gardens are when the sun is shining, but how often do we see what a garden looks like at night? Between dusk and dawn, when moonlight illuminates the plants, visitors can enjoy unique insight into a garden’s personality.

Night pollinators such as moths, native bees and bats are attracted to plants in a moon garden with white and pale-colored flowers that are intensely fragrant and produce a lot of nectar. As you walk through the moon garden, you will be able to watch these varied and industrious third-shift pollinators as they go about their important work.

Pioneer Thinking: Plants For May

Summer is finally on its way and the garden is beginning to burst with colour. Here are just a few of the plants you might like to choose to make your garden really stand out this month.

Aquilegia or Grannies Bonnet is a very common cottage garden plant that some people even consider a weed. However, there are some really beautiful varieties of this stunning little plant that should have a place in every herbaceous border. Nora Barlow is a very old variety that has tight buds of apple green, a colour which stays on the tip of the petals as they unfurl into a ball of pink and white flowers. This variety is not only pretty but also makes a good cut flower. There is a black version called Black Barlow

EarthSky News: Do we all see the same moon phase?

One Earth. One sky. One moon phase (more or less) from all of Earth. So why (and how) does the moon appear differently from different parts of Earth?

Inner Journey: Awareness Through Love and Fear

“There is nothing holier in this life of ours than the first consciousness of love — the first fluttering of its silken wings — the first rising sound and breath of that wind which is so soon to sweep through the soul, to purify or to destroy.”
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Our inner journey takes us through the following stages relative to love and fear:

1.UNCONSCIOUS LOVE: When we are born, we exist as pure love but we are not conscious of our love.
2.UNCONSCIOUS FEAR: Our souls have set the stage for our evolution. As we grow, unconscious fears arise in our personalities that draw experiences to us that wound us.
3.CONSCIOUS FEAR: Our wounds bring pain and suffering that enable us to become conscious of our fears.
4.CONSCIOUS LOVE: When we’ve suffered enough pain, we are motivated to move through our fears to consciously experience the love that supports all.

“Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.”
— Alexander Smith

Practice

“Whoever perseveres will be crowned.” -Johann Gottfried von Herder (German author, 1744-1803)

Remember the old joke, “How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” The punchline is “Practice, practice, practice!” Funny, but oh, so true! How do we reach that peace of mind, how do we get to that spiritual place that we’re looking for? The answer is the same: Practice, practice, practice! We’re going to get better at seeing ourselves as who we really are the more we practice actually being it. Whatever practice you choose, practice on a regular basis, practice every day, twice a day or more so.
