Spirit Library: Time for a Change
Summer has arrived in spring and it’s expected to soar past ninety degrees again today. As I walked around the newly planted deck garden this morning, I looked for signs of life after yesterday’s heat. The bright yellow dahlias were still standing tall, their round faces beaming like happy little suns.

Treehugger: Artist’s Botanical Bas Reliefs Immortalize Beauty of Plants
These cast artworks highlight the ephemerality of nature.
For centuries, botanists have attempted to document the complexities of plant life by drawing realistic representations of them. This practice has changed a bit with the advent of photography, but other traditional methods, such as nature printing—which involves making images of plant specimens using ink, gum, or plaster—continue to fascinate people even today.
EarthSky News: Mars and Jupiter conjunction on May 29
If you’re an early riser, you have probably noticed the reddish planet Mars inching closer to bright Jupiter in the sky before dawn. The two planets are neighboring worlds in our solar system, though they are currently separated by about 350 million miles (560 million km) and an asteroid belt. Yet, on the dome of our sky, they’ll appear about the width of a full moon apart on May 29.
Patheos-Pagan: The Shining Ones Speak
MAY 16, 2022 BY REV. JEAN (DRUM) PAGANO
I have recently read comments by people on how they feel separated or distant from the Gods, or, as we call them in ADF, the Shining Ones. Of all the Kindreds, they are the entities that differ from us the most.

LIVE IN RELAXATION
“It would be glorious to see mankind at leisure for once. It is nothing but work, work, work.”
— Henry David Thoreau
Is relaxation possible only when we’re not working? No. With awareness and practice, we can be relaxed no matter what we are doing. In fact, when we work in a relaxed state, our productivity increases as our effort decreases.
For true relaxation, we need to connect with our bodies — to consciously and intentionally become aware of tension and release it.
“Anxiety breaks a man’s backbone.”
— Hebrew proverb
“Don’t hurry, don’t worry. You’re only here for a short visit. So be sure to stop and smell the flowers.”
— Walter Hagen

“The only way to have a friend is to be one.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Friendship is ours to give. It is a gift that multiplies when it comes back to us. Friends help us to be more of who we are, they help us to feel our connection to the world. With the support of friends we can achieve more, enjoy more, and appreciate more. And we can do the same for our friends! Friendship works both ways.

Daily Tarot: The Hermit
It might be a busy day, but try to make some time for yourself. Any time you spend meditating or settling your mind will be time well spent. It doesn’t have to be spent sitting around and being idle all day. Staring pensively into that cup of tea for a few moments can be equally beneficial. Calm your mind, and your heart, and make it an at-peace day
