Daily Good: Every Act a Ceremony

“In a ceremony, one attends fully to the task at hand, performing each action just as it should be. A ceremony is therefore a practice for all of life, a practice in doing everything just as it should be done. An earnest ceremonial practice is like a magnet that aligns more and more of life to its field; it is a prayer that asks, “May everything I do be a ceremony. May I do everything with full attention, full care, and full respect for what it serves.” In this essay Charles Eisenstein explores what modern people can draw from the ceremonial approach to life, as practiced by traditional, indigenous, and place-based peoples, as well as esoteric lineages within the dominant culture. { read more }

Immortality
“The voice of Nature loudly cries,
And many a message from the skies,
That something in us never dies.” -Robert Burns (1759-1796)
Nature illustrates its message to us in so many beautiful ways. The cycles of the seasons – the sun rising every day – the rainbow after the storm. Life is beautiful and bold, precious and strong – and such a ride! Nature mirrors our Spirit. Nature nurtures our Soul.

-Lissa Coffey
