Autumn is a cultivation of Life’s mystery at the heart of all things.
As we wander through the many seasons of soul we’re asked to grow, change and rearrange.
It’s only when we’re willing to dive into the unconscious waters within that we’re able to quiet our minds…
What does it benefit us if we gain the whole world and lose our own soulful humor?
The new situation that many of us want is one of harmony, love, joy and peace.
What if Life is like a mirror? What if Life reflects back to us what we think into it?
I remember when I spent summers at the lake and each day was different with something new that brought Life to life.
Like life, Nature is not static: It’s always changing and rearranging as nothing physical endures.
The world is in need of a lived interdependence that heals the whole creation of sentient and non-sentient beings.
The birds still sing songs of awakening and call us home to a dream of serene peace and harmony but are we listening?
What does it mean for you to relax and enjoy June, the beginning of summer?

Restoration is a means of getting back to the original blessing of what’s been diminished or lost. Retribution is a reward and punishment strategy.
I’ve come to see that the only person I’m destined to become is the one I decide to be.
…the first butterfly sighting on this May day spoke to me of a transcendental moment…
To unlock the door of our heart and soul from the inside demands a complete reorientation of how we see the world.
Love is discovered in nurturance. It’s discovered in the flowers, the trees, the gentle breeze and feelings of caring relations.
If ‘nothing goes away until it has taught us what we need to know,’ should we not be looking at what we need to know?
