MBG: How To Teach Kids To Love Nature In A Tech-Obsessed World

We know that nature serves as a calming force when we’re stressed or anxious, and its effects on children may be even more profound.

“Nature has the power to make children happier, healthier, and smarter,” Sarah Milligan-Toffler, executive director of the Children & Nature Network, explained during the Biophilic Leadership Summit, a gathering of dozens of thought leaders in nature-inspired design held this April.

Patheos-Pagan: Personal Development And Self Work Is Utterly Crucial To Spirituality And The Craft 

I’ve touched upon this in a number of blog posts, especially in discussing the notions of true will and spiritual journeys, but a number of recent events have necessitated in my spelling this out in black and white: you absolutely, positively cannot get away with being involved in spiritual and/or occult pursuits without putting forth some serious, ongoing effort towards self improvement and self knowledge. This is universal regardless of tradition, practice, or belief.

Inner Journey: 

FEELING TRAPPED? SLOW DOWN!

“If you’re having difficulty coming up with new ideas, then slow down. For me, slowing down has been a tremendous source of creativity. It has allowed me to open up — to know that there’s life under the earth and that I have to let it come through me in a new way. Creativity exists in the present moment. You can’t find it anywhere else.”
— Natalie Goldberg

Feeling trapped in some way? Give yourself space. Space to do nothing but breathe. To intentionally relax those tight muscles. To just for a few precious minutes, let it all go.

The world will keep turning if you tune out for a short while. And your world will begin to recover its balance.

“It’s important to be heroic, ambitious, productive, efficient, creative, and progressive, but these qualities don’t necessarily nurture soul. The soul has different concerns, of equal value: downtime for reflection, conversation, and reverie; beauty that is captivating and pleasuring; relatedness to the environs and to people; and any animal’s rhythm of rest and activity.”
— Thomas Moore

Creativity

“When we are writing, or painting, or composing, we are, during the time of creativity, freed from normal restrictions, and are opened to a wider world, where colors are brighter, sounds clearer, and people more wondrously complex than we normally realize.” -Madeleine L’Engle, (Walking on Water 1980)

Creativity is freeing. It is exploring the great “what if” out there. When our imagination is unleashed we can soar to ever-greater heights. We experience our connection to the Universe in a profound way, with timeless awareness and innate wisdom.

Spirituality & Health: 5 Ways to Deal with Allergies Naturally

Allergy reactions always remind me of a roll call of the Seven Dwarfs: Sneezy, Grumpy? Here. Dopey and Sleepy, if you need to take strong allergy medicine.

MindBodyGreen:  Why Being Selfish Is Actually A Good Thing

OK, let’s come clean right off the bat: How many of you felt guilty even seeing the word “selfish” written in the title of this article?

We can all agree that our society has attached a negative connotation to the word “selfish.” It’s used in arguments to suggest that you care about yourself more than your spouse, partner, child, parent, or friend. Somehow you are deemed a “bad” person by focusing on your own needs, desires, and wants first.

Patheos-Pagan: 8 Things to do for Summer Solstice as a Solitary Pagan

Many Pagans are solitary practitioners, either by choice or by necessity. But a lot of Pagan activities for the Summer Solstice are designed for large groups.

Inner Journey: 

EXPLORE WITH QUESTIONS

“The word ‘question’ is derived from the Latin ‘quarrier’ (to seek) which is also the root of ‘quest.’ A creative life is a continued quest, and good questions can be very useful guides. Most useful are open-ended questions; they allow for fresh unanticipated answers to reveal themselves.”
— Source Unknown

Questions hold the power to draw out answers that surprise us. If we are on an inner journey to greater self-knowledge, we must seek to understand unfamiliar parts of ourselves. The most enlightening answers are released by our subconscious minds or by our intuition. Use questions frequently to go exploring.

Try these out:
• What qualities do you find most attractive in others? How do you exhibit those same qualities?
• What is your greatest fear? Why do you fear that?
• What message is your body trying to get through to you?

“If we would have new knowledge, we must get a whole world of new questions.”
— Susanne K. Langer

“You don’t want a million answers as much as you want a few forever questions.”
— Richard Bach

Of course, to the uninitiated it doesn’t appear that way. To them it appears as if only those taking gigantic leaps, who drive cars with fancy wheels, have loads of friends, perfect bodies, and fly around the world in First Class Sleeper Seats, are having fun. But what they don’t realize is that we’re often talking about the very same folks, just at different points in their journey.

Creativity

“To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given the chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life. The money is the gravy. As everyone else, I love to dunk my crust in it. But alone, it is not a diet designed to keep body and soul together.”  -Bette Davis

Our creativity is our nourishment, it is nutrition for our spirit! We cannot truly live without it. We are born creative beings, and we are creating every moment with every decision that we make. We are creating our lives right now.

T he Spiritual Meaning of the Om Symbol – It’s More Than You Think
June 14, 2018
Hello everyone, here’s a new article about a well-known sacred symbol, and that is the “Om” symbol. Although it is commonly associated with Hinduism, Yoga or some New-Age ideas nowadays, the Om symbol has a way deeper spiritual meaning than what you might think. It is, in fact, associated with other Indian concepts such as Brahman, Atman and many other things. I’ll come back to it.

Creativity

“Any creative endeavor is channeled, whether it be music or art or theoretical science. We have the capacity to tune in to energies and to convert them into reality for ourselves.”-Frank Alper

At one important scientific conference, a group of scientists announced that with all of the new technology and their vast knowledge, that they could create life all on their own, with no help whatsoever from God. A reporter in the room challenged them and asked for proof. The scientists, confident in their claim, invited everyone outside for a demonstration. There, in an open field, one of them scooped a handful of earth, and said: “This is where we will begin.” And God’s voice was heard from above and He said: “Use your own dirt!”

This is a cute joke, and it calls our attention to the fact that we are creative beings, and that creativity comes from the Source of All things.

That’s 5:07 a.m. CDT in North America on June 21. Translate UTC to your time. For us in the Northern Hemisphere, this solstice marks the longest day of the year. Early dawns. Long days. Late sunsets. Short nights. The sun at its height each day, as it crosses the sky. Meanwhile, south of the equator, winter begins.

Patheos-Pagan: Coloring Outside the Lines: Ancestry and Metaphors

So let’s take a quick, overly general look at the pre-Christian, aboriginal religion of the early Germanic peoples, shall we?

Inner Journey:

DON’T REJECT THE EGO

“Nourishing the soul is the process of drinking at the life stream, coming back to one’s true self, embracing the whole of one’s experience – good, bad, or ugly; painful or exalted; dull or boring.”
— Jon Kabat-Zinn

Spiritual teachings sometimes counsel a need to let go of the ego. In our view, though, ego and personality are essential players in our theatre of life. Personality is the vehicle for Spirit to evolve through form. Soul sparks the potential that exists within the personality.

We don’t want the ego to disappear – we want it to open to divine guidance so the two may work together in alignment.

And so the path of personality aims to build a healthy, skilful ego. Ironically, only a strong, mature ego can take responsibility for carrying the consciousness of soul.

“How do we nurture the soul? By revering our own life. By treating it as supremely important. By reaching for the best within ourselves. By learning to love it all, not only the joys and the victories, but also the pain and the struggles.”
— Nathaniel Branden

Humor

“When humor goes, there goes civilization.” -Erma Bombeck

We need humor to balance out all the other “stuff” that is going on in the world every day. Where would we be without our ability to laugh at ourselves. Situation comedies have always been popular on TV because they depict “situations” that we’ve all been in and can relate to – but they do it in such a way that we can see how funny the whole thing is! Today look at the world this way: “My Life is a SitCom!” Of course, you are the star of the show! And all your friends are relatives are supporting players. I’ll bet you’ll find lots of punch lines in the script!

MBG: Everything You Need To Know About The Magic (And Science) Of Breathwork

Breathwork has been construed as the link between consciousness and the spirit realm. Some maintain that it’s a shortcut to meditation. Whether you practice breathwork in a yoga class or as part of a PTSD healing protocol, engaging in controlled purposeful breathing patterns can actually help control the inner workings of your body, from heart rate variability to calming anxiety.

Elephant Journal: Suicide doesn’t Discriminate: 6 Warning Signs that could save someone you Love

Last Tuesday morning, we woke to news that designer Kate Spade had hung herself—with a scarf.
By Friday morning, the news was covering Anthony Bourdain’s suicide by hanging. As I combed the articles and updates for suicide resources, I found most of them lacking. In many cases, the juicy, morbid details took center stage over the more important topic of discussion—where to get help.

MNN: Dutch neighborhood of 3D-printed houses will be world’s first

The Netherlands’ fifth largest city, Eindhoven, is best known as the birthplace of electronics giant Philips, for its top-notch technical institute and for being an all-around hotbed of design, innovation and charged-up Dutch geek culture. Its most iconic building is an amorphous, 82-foot-tall glass and steel structure dubbed “De Blob” that serves as a portal to a massive underground bicycle garage

Patheos-Pagan:  Summer Solstice In Ancient Greek And Modern Times

Summer Solstice is often referred to as “midsummer”, and had differing traditions surrounding it in ancient pagan times. Among the Greeks, there were some calendars which pivoted around the summer solstice.

Inner Journey

DON’T AVOID THE VOID

“When we feel stuck, going nowhere — even starting to slip backward — we may actually be backing up to get a running start.”
— Dan Millman

To change, we must go through a transition zone. It’s not easy being in transition. Thoughts, beliefs and habits are all in flux. It can create a sense of groundlessness, of being in a void that can be quite uncomfortable.

When we’re in the void, our first impulse will be to revert to old habits because they feel comfortable. Our goal is to hang in there until the change is complete. Knowing that TRANSITIONS ARE PART OF THE CHANGE PROCESS helps us muster the courage to put up with the discomfort, the uneasiness, the void.

Change requires a letting go of what we’ve always known and done to allow in something new. We need to trust ourselves and higher forces to unfold a new reality for us.

“Every positive change – every jump to a higher level of energy and awareness – involves a rite of passage. Each time to ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of personal evolution, we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation. I have never found an exception.”
— Dan Millman

Humor

“Sexiness wears thin after a while and beauty fades, but to be married to a man who makes you laugh every day, ah, now that’s a real treat!” -Joanne Woodward

Sure, Joanne Woodward can talk – she’s married to Paul Newman! But look what she really values in her husband: his sense of humor. Our sense of humor will take us far in this life. Laughter is like medicine – it keeps us healthy and feeling good. It’s a way of experiencing joy, and a joyful life is a spiritual life, recognizing and appreciating our connection with the Divine.

Patheos-Pagan: Dropping Expectations: What Polytheists & Pagans Need To Relearn About Religion

Inner Journey:  

HARD WORK

“Work should be in order to live. We don’t live in order to work. That shift in awareness is necessary.”
— Matthew Fox

What are your beliefs around work? Do you believe it’s necessary to work hard to earn a living? No pain, no gain? Do you believe women’s work is never done? That play is a waste of time?

While there are merits to the work ethic, over-work takes a serious toll on the quality of our lives. Our ability to contribute to life requires us to have a sense of balance, joy, playfulness, time to stop and smell the flowers.

“Learning to let go of the ways we inadvertently and unconsciously contribute to our own pain is the key to finding radiant physical and emotional health.”
— Ingrid Bacci

“To do great work a man must be very idle as well as very industrious.”
— Samuel Butler

“The true object of all human life is play.”
— G.K. Chesterton

Humor

“I think laughter may be a form of courage… As humans we sometimes stand tall and look into the sun and laugh, and I think we are never more brave than when we do that.” -Linda Ellerbee

We can rise above all of our problems. We are bigger than any of them anyway! When things get rough, we have a choice – we can be devastated and beat down, or we can face it head-on and say:”Okay, here we go again. I can take it. I can learn from this. I am growing and I can handle this!” Having a good sense of humor gets us through a lot. It’s just a different way of looking at things, one that recognizes the power that we have over our problems, not the other way around!

Currently, we are basking in the energy of zodiac sign Gemini, as the sun is temporarily resting in that sign.
The moon will be joining the sun and resting there from June 12th to 13th. Never is division and polarity more prominent than when the sun and moon cozy up and radiate outward from Gemini’s constellation.

Patheos-Pagan: Exploring Daily Practice

A few years ago I started going to the gym on a regular basis. I would listen to music on my headphones (earbuds, whatever) and walk on the treadmill while my daughter was in karate class. I’ve never been an athletic person and running only happens if I’m being chased, but there was an unexpected side effect from my little workout routine. I developed a new daily practice of listening to my spiritual allies.

Inner Journey: Capture your inspiration!

“Ideas can come from anywhere and at any time. The problem with making mental notes is that the ink fades very rapidly.”
— Rolf Smith

Insights and inspiration come to us for a reason. Don’t let them disappear on you!

When a great idea pops into your mind, write it down and capture it. Keep a mini-journal or piece of paper with you at all times.

Reflect on your insights. How might you anchor this great idea so it enhances your life?

“Everyone who has ever taken a shower has had an idea. It’s the person who gets out of the shower, dries off, and does something about it that makes a difference.”

Humor

“Humor is emotional chaos remembered in tranquility.”  -James Thurber (1894-1961) US humorist, illustrator

Do you remember the TV show “My World and Welcome to It?” It starred William Windom as James Thurber. This was many years ago, so it may be that he played a James Thurber “type,” (I was very young and can’t remember the details. 😉 I loved that show! And I loved how the lesson was that there was always something to laugh at, some funny way of looking at something that we might not have thought of. Sometimes when we’re going through something really awful or embarrassing, we’ll look at one another and say: “Someday we’ll look back on this and laugh.” And doesn’t that happen! Some of our funniest moments come out of our most human foibles. We are funny people, and we can enjoy ourselves.
