Resonance: Our Saving Grace?

I couldn’t help myself. I jumped up and down; had a little hissy fit. It wasn’t the price. I would pay anything so that I could bake at least one pie for my parents. It was the knowing that rhubarb is abundant in New England and the rhubarb in Hannaford’s had come from Belgium. After my fuming, I didn’t go any further on the subject. I know better than to try to make sense out of insanity.

Why We’re Feeling so Overwhelmed: Part II

And thank you for such a well-organized, thoughtful piece on the manic nature of our world, and NATURE! Yes, we forget we are PART of nature, and not witnesses to it, or characters simply living within it. My awareness of a stronger relationship with nature came in 1980, when I was 10. I started getting migraines, to which there was no medical explanation. I also developed an obsession with the weather and earthquakes and disasters and such. After Mt. St. Helens erupted that year, my headaches ceased. But I seemed tapped into all of the energy. No one in my life, in the Midwest, could explain it. I felt something deeper in me, but it would lay dormant for years.

Gratitude Begins at Home

I missed the Thanksgiving blog boat last week in not posting an article about gratitude. Gratitude is a subject that’s been done to death. It’s not that I’m against gratitude–far from it. Life if abundant whether we practice gratitude or not. How many breaths will you breathe in your lifetime? How many blades of grass will you set foot upon? How many choices does one make in just one 24 hour period? Free will is all about abundance. You see, I’m talking about the abundance of nature, of our God given gifts, not material goods, not money. How totally yuck that something so beautiful as being grateful for God’s abundant life got connected up with and manipulated for the purpose of manifesting material abundance!

When Two or More of You are Gathered

When is the last time you had family and friends to your home for a meal, to play a board game, or to just talk over a cup of tea? When was the last time you were invited out for any of these activities? If you have children, when was the last time you all sat down at the table and had a home cooked meal together after which you lingered at the table and talked to one another?

I can hear the excuses and they all involve the word “busy”.
