“Now summer is in flower and natures hum
Is never silent round her sultry bloom
Insects as small as dust are never done
Wi’ glittering dance and reeling in the sun
And green wood fly and blossom haunting bee
Are never weary of their melody
Round field hedge now flowers in full glory twine
Large bindweed bells wild hop and streakd woodbine
That lift athirst their slender throated flowers
Agape for dew falls and for honey showers
These round each bush in sweet disorder run
And spread their wild hues to the sultry sun.”
John Clare, June

As I walked out one quiet evening
At the hour of twelve at night
Who should I meet but a fair young maiden
Combin’ her hair by candle light;
Lassie, I have come a-courtin’
Your kind favours for to win
And if you’d heed my petition
I would be your Paladin…

Spirituality & Health:
Stop Letting Go of Your Attachments!
Don’t assume that “spiritual” means not having attachments. Observe yours and see what happens as your awareness deepens into the very thing you want to rid yourself of.

Midsummer is the time when we celebrate the bounty of the earth and the power of the sun. Our fields are flourishing, fruits are blossoming on the trees, herb bushes are fragrant and full of life. The sun is at its highest point in the sky

Elephant Journal: 15 Soul-Healing Quotes by Carl Jung.
I’ve spent a lot of time over the last few years becoming acquainted with my “darkness.”
I’ve gotten to know my fears, and I’ve sat with buried sadness, anger, and pain. So many things that were unconscious to me have become conscious, through simply sitting with myself and feeling into all of my emotions, through being willing to be present with all of it.
Treehugger: What to See in the Night Sky for June 2022
A rare planetary alignment, the solstice, and meteor showers welcome summer.
It’s here. After months of flirting with warmer weather, June has finally arrived to welcome back barbecues, sunscreen, water balloons, fire pits, camping, gardening, and more. Depending on where you live, it’s also one of the few times in the year when the the stars above face some fierce competition from the fireflies below.

Patheos-Pagan: Hera: Leading Me Through Challenging Times
JUNE 1, 2022 BY GWYN
As a Pagan witch devoted to other deities, it came as a surprise when Hera reached out to me last year. Her interest took me by surprise.
Why? Well, I have never really “liked” Hera in the past (blame Hercules: The Legendary Journeys). And I thought she must know this, so why would Hera want to work with me?

“The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival.”
INSIGHTS happen only when we shift to a higher, more inclusive perspective. As we grow in wisdom and experience, we become less attached to the form of reality and more aware of its spiritual side – its qualities, values and meaning. As we get to know ourselves as souls, we begin to let go of the self-consciousness of the ego. This allows us to more effectively include others and work with the whole picture.
When there is more in sight, we get more insights.
Try becoming aware of those times when you focus on differences. At those times, STOP and PAY ATTENTION and IDENTIFY SIMILARITIES INSTEAD. See how all parts fit into a bigger picture. Expand your perspectives. Find common causes, motives and needs. Go to another level of thinking and problem solving. Be open to using more imagination and creativity. Shift your thinking from “either/or” to “both/and” and be prepared for more insights.
“Insight occurs when, and to the degree that, one knows oneself.”
— Andrew Schneider
“We are not what we know. We are what we are willing to learn.”
— Council on Ideas
A Note from the Universe
The greatest predicament of living in the jungles of time and space, is learning to be happy while still having unfulfilled dreams.
The greatest challenge is not looking to the illusions for meaning, definition, and answers.
The greatest mystery is figuring out who you really are.
And the greatest reward is having predicaments, challenges, and mysteries that you have absolutely aced, crushed, and unraveled.
Today’s Recipe: Old-Fashioned Root Beer Slushy
This delicious and refreshing concoction is one of my all-time favorite summer drinks. If you know how to make ice cubes and you have a blender, this couldn’t be simpler. It’s very close to a root beer float but uses only a fraction of the dairy. Be careful, if you sip it too fast, you’ll experience the most intense brain freeze of your life-but it will be worth it!

“Nonbeing can never be;
being can never not be.
Both these statements are obvious
To those who have seen the truth.”
-The Bhagavad Gita
So, just where do we go to see “the truth?” If there were a cruise to get there I’ll bet we’d all sign up! But we don’t have to get on a luxury ship to see the Truth. We don’t have to go anywhere. We just need to go within. It’s all there. All the answers we seek. All the miracles we chase. Look within. You’ll see.

Daily Tarot: Wheel of Fortune
You may be in high spirits today and see everything in a fresh light. If this interferes with your mundane duties, take pleasure in the small, lovely, often overlooked aspects of what’s around you. Discoveries can be made in even the most repetitive activity when you look closely enough and appreciate why things are the way they are. This exuberance is short-lived, so enjoy the day and learn something new!
