The Universe is sacred
You cannot improve it
If you try to change it, you will ruin
If you try to hold it, you will lose
We think it would be "nice" if
life was always like a rose garden in full bloom.....but like any garden
seasons come and go. Wind and storms change the structure of the garden. New
seeds are planted and in turn flower and share with us the secrets of their
beauty, the perfume of their flower. When we return to the garden next season or
next year, the same bushes stand tall and sturdy but share with us - similar but
different aspects of their beauty.
All life is like this.
We can bounce or float or drift or
sit under the shade of the tree while all the changes evolve around us. We might
think that we stay the same, however these external changes create within us
The experiences of our day to day
living allow us to view the garden in a different way.
As a child we ran through the
garden - aware that it was pretty but didn't look too closely at the colour and
the species which surrounded us.
As we grew we noticed more the type
of plants and where it was sunnier or in more shade
we noticed was it busy or was it
In old age we appreciate the peace
and the solitude it gives us as we reflect on the changes.
We reach a point in our lives where
we no longer have the need to 'blame' our parents or our siblings or indeed life
for the "WHO" in the person we've become.
We can see that life itself changes
us, if we allow the process to flow.
We understand the joy in being the
"WHO" in the person we've become.
As we understand ourselves more
completely, it is much easier to let go of judgement, anger, jealousy and all
the negative aspects.
We allow contemned to underscore
the chorus for the song of our life
We used to hear the phrase that you
mellow as you age - but I believe it is not "mellow" -it's the realisation that
the more we let go, the more we are able to enjoy the colours, perfumes and
sounds which flitter through our garden.
We are able to see the new seeds
and plants as being what they really are - the symbolically of nature guiding
our feet into understanding ourselves.
we can choose to come to this
understanding at any age.
All we need do is give ourselves
the permission to let go of that which no longer serves us
and take the time to Stop and smell

day at the dinner hour (evening meal)
in lighting a candle
so that we as One People
may dream together for Peace On Earth.
Together we can create a
reality free of greed and manipulation,
where all people in all
lands may have the freedom to move freely without fear.
I ask that the flame burn
eternally within our hearts in recognition of all those
folk who have chosen to
leave this planet so that we may awaken to the role we are
truly meant to
I ask today that we share
love and healing for all those who are far from their homes, who are waiting for
something to happen to make their lives easier and better. I ask in love that
all those who are hungry find sustenance.
I ask that we each send
love to those who are in grief through the loss of a loved one be given
I ask that we share the
joys as well as the pains of all our fellow beings as we travel these paths to
the best of our abilities.

The Circle of Life is
charged with coincidences of the moment.
To follow your heart in
recognizing the power of chance,
invites the energy of
the subconscious mind to create a new reality.
