Sea Gulls symbolize subtleties in communication . . .
Part of mindfulness is noticing body language,
and other non-verbal ways of communicating with each other
But paying too much attention to the depth of subtext,
Might make superficial conversations a challenge
It is easy for folks following a spiritual path to forget how to enjoy themselves
and take the wicked ways of the world too seriously
But if you are not feeling joyful,
what can you do to awaken that experience in yourself?
By examining your inner world in this way, perhaps you might be able to let go of
seeing yourself as a helpless bystander
When you choose to not take the happenings around us personally,
you end up feeling more empowered and less swayed by the ways of the world
Spring Equinox arrives this Monday . . .
Masculine and feminine energies are in equal alignment with one another
In the Northern Hemisphere, darkness is waning, while lighter days intensify
Til the sunlight peaks on the Summer Solstice in June
In the Southern Hemisphere, it will be their Autumn Equinox
Their days will become darker until their darkest day on their Winter Solstice
Beneath life’s herrings, Nature reveals to us opposites are everywhere . . .
Yes, we have lived in a patriarchical dominated world for a long time
But there was a time when matriarchal societies abused their power too
Can you see how a fear of feminine power turned into oppression of women?
Magic, mystery and darkness do not need to be suppressed or repressed
Besides, we tend to fear what we don’t understand
So it stands to reason that we can work on building empathy, curiosity,
and understanding toward others first, before we are understood
Sometimes, silence is a higher spiritual form of communication
Next time you find yourself waiting to speak your mind,
try keeping spirit in for a moment by relaxing your mind, and holding your tongue
Something to chew on,
