“It is a sad moment when the first phlox appears. It is the amber light indicating the end of the great burst of
early summer and suggesting that we must now start looking forward to autumn. Not that I have any objection
to autumn as a season, full of its own beauty; but I just cannot bear to see another summer go, and I recoil
from what the first hint of autumn means.”

Spirituality & Health: Saraswati’s Ultimate Gift Is Inner Peace
by Acharya Shunya
Saraswati teaches us this lesson: I don’t have to find peace outside me by becoming someone I am not.
There is a certain peace that can be obtained in the mind by reducing the frequency of thoughts. Your true peaceful nature will shine in the gaps between thoughts.
Wise Woman Herbal Ezine : SHE
SPIRIT of the EARTH: WATER
by Roslyne Sophia Breillat
She is the pure still water of the silent lake, her profound depths encircled by sun bleached pebbles, softly glittering sand and tall graceful grasses dancing playfully with the breeze. This lady of the lake is deeply sacred and quietly mysterious, for she holds many ancient songs and silent secrets in the cool dark waters of her womb.

SEPTEMBER 4, 2022 BY JOHN BECKETT
The next question in the latest Conversations Under the Oaks is something people have wondered about for millennia.

LIFE COMES WITH PROBLEMS
“For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin — real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.”
— Fr. Alfred D’Souza
Life always brings problems. We really can’t live without them.
And so it helps to shift our perspective. We can stop trying to avoid the problems. We can stop feeling victimized by what’s happening. Instead, we can consciously work with the challenge of the moment to learn more about ourselves and the world. When we make this shift in attitude, we discover ourselves to be strong and powerful.
“Every lesson is a widening and deepening of consciousness. It is a stretching of the mind beyond its conceptual limits and a stretching of the heart beyond its emotional boundaries. It is a bringing of unconscious material into consciousness, a healing of past wounds, and a discovery of new faith and trust.”
— Paul Ferrini
A Note from the Universe
People, when given a chance smile, skip, and dance.
They create, play, and laugh.
They care, share, and love.
And the ones who don’t, haven’t yet realized that chances are something you give yourself.
Double dare you,

September 7, 2022
“I am not the smartest or most talented person in the world, but I succeeded because I keep going, and going, and going.”
There is a lot to be said for persistence and perseverance. How much drive and enthusiasm have we put into our efforts? When we pursue something “whole-heartedly” then we simply can’t give up. When we invest our Selves into our plans, we can’t help but succeed!

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.
