“Each human being exists within the context of interrelationships that include other human beings, all living beings and the natural world. In other words, each person is sustained by the interdependent web of life. By awakening to this principle we are able to expand instinctive self-love into an altruistic love for others; we are able to nurture the spirit of tolerance and empathy for others.”

Dr. Yoichi Kawada, From inner peace to world peace, a Buddhist perspective.

a Solstice ♡ Meditation on Love

Light Tribe of Gaia.

June 21st at 5:04 am UTC:
The Winter / Summer Solstice, depending on which hemisphere you’re in.

As the consciousness of the world shifts into a higher state, you may find yourselves feeling deep love, but also despair in these changing times.

You are not alone! We are all interconnected in a web of loving kindness and peace. There are so many beings awakening here on earth.
By maintaining the frequency of love, light and joy within each one of us, we are assisting in this shift.

“The easiest way to bring yourself into this higher frequency is to activate gratitude within your emotional field – to think of those things that you love – the dolphins, the whales, your own dogs and cats, all beloved children of the earth plane, nature in all its glory and beauty and power, all those who love and support you. Bringing these things into your consciousness, things that you are truly grateful for, these lighten your vibration beyond measure. And smile dear ones – smile the smile of the enlightened Buddha – the smile that acknowledges that all suffering is illusion.”
And so it is.
Namaste.”

beautiful stories from around the world

A Child’s Song of an African tribe,

sung throughout its Life

There is a tribe in Africa where the birth date of a child is counted not from when they were born, nor from when they are conceived but from the day that the child was a thought in its mother’s mind. And when a woman decides that she will have a child, she goes off and sits under a tree, by herself, and she listens until she can hear the song of the child that wants to come. And after she’s heard the song of this child, she comes back to the man who will be the child’s father, and teaches it to him. And then, when they make love to physically conceive the child, some of that time they sing the song of the child, as a way to invite it.

a Child's Song

And then, when the mother is pregnant, the mother teaches that child’s song to the midwives and the old women of the village, so that when the child is born, the old women and the people around her sing the child’s song to welcome it. And then, as the child grows up, the other villagers are taught the child’s song. If the child falls, or hurts its knee, someone picks it up and sings its song to it. Or perhaps the child does something wonderful, or goes through the rites of puberty, then as a way of honoring this person, the people of the village sing his or her song.

In the African tribe there is one other occasion upon which the villagers sing to the child. If at any time during his or her life, the person commits a crime or aberrant social act, the individual is called to the center of the village and the people in the community form a circle around them. Then they sing their song to them.

The tribe recognizes that the correction for antisocial behavior is not punishment; it is love and the remembrance of identity. When you recognize your own song, you have no desire or need to do anything that would hurt another.
And it goes this way through their life. In marriage, the songs are sung, together. And finally, when this child is lying in bed, ready to die, all the villagers know his or her song, and they sing—for the last time—the song to that person.

~o~

You may not have grown up in an African tribe that sings your song to you at crucial life transitions, but life is always reminding you when you are in tune with yourself and when you are not. When you feel good, what you are doing matches your song, and when you feel awful, it doesn’t. In the end, we shall all recognize our song and sing it well. You may feel a little warbly at the moment, but so have all the great singers. Just keep singing and you’ll find your way home.

Dobri Dobrev, the Bulgarian altruist,

who begs for money to give away

In Bulgaria, 98 year old Dobri Dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of Sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.

though a well known fixture around several of the city’s churches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living instead off his monthly state pension of 80 euros.

Scruffy dog has chance encounter with school kids in UK park. What was I worried about?

** Credits are below, but in actuality the top two posts were re-blogged a fair few times before they got to me. 
Which shows not just how brilliant they are, but also how meaningful it is to this generation that these things happen. Such beauty is worth recording, sharing and celebrating!

~o~

Dedicated to the Pulminary Fibrosis support group, LEEP, I helped out at today. It was a discussion there that really got me thinking about current values, and prompted this post. So thanks guys, for being inspiring 🙂
☆ And thanks to the hospital staff there for restoring my faith in what the medical profession’s really there for.

Reflection for today…Beautiful Journey- Angelina Jolie

Angelina is beautiful and brave.

Unconditional love is beyond awesome.

As for mastectomies

I have friends in the UK who have been refused a double mastectomy on the grounds that the other breast was healthy.

WTF?! Homage to Ms. Jolie for making a stand for what she believes in, and good on those who stand by her.

I always think I’d fight for the right to say what happens to my body.

But then I expect when cancer gets to that stage, you’ve got precious little energy left for anything asides day to day survival. Probably all you want to do is stay alive, and be with those who matter to you as best you can.
Homage to those who continue with integrity, courage and love when their own bodies are failing them.

Wish the medical profession would work with us, rather than against us.

웃♡웃♡유♡웃♡유♡유

But then I suppose since the world is but a reflection of our own mind,
that’s the work we all have take on for ourselves.
Truly worth doing.

everything else is an illusion.” David Icke

Authorities…

Instant Karma? ;~)

poet4justicedotwordpressdotcom

Authorities in Zimbabwe say that a suspected poacher was killed by an elephant after he attempted to shoot the animal.

Rangers found the body of Solomon Manjoro inside a national park, and believe he was attempting to poach in the protected Charara safari area. According to Zimbabwe’s Sunday Mail, Manjoro and an accomplice entered the park in mid-to-late April, with plans to hunt elephants for their ivory.

However, things didn’t go as planned for the poachers.

The Sunday Mail reports, ”The poacher was recently trampled to death by an elephant after he failed to gun down the jumbo during a hunting expedition.”

Love is About Appreciation

Buddhists talk about ‘attachment’, which is a negative mind set. It exaggerates an object’s good qualities, and desires to possess it.

This possessive thing is not good. It’s a clingy, grasping mind that can feel suffocating. Desirous attachment feels horrible for all concerned. It chokes the joy out of something we previously held as precious.

My Precious… ॐ If you love something let it be,

if it wants to fly, set it free.
