☆ Photo Break: Somerset Flood Defence

Flood defences on a street in Somerset, with a handy gap for the water to go when high tide hits.

Somerset flood defence

* Somerset is a county at the bottom of the UK.
It’s mostly rural, with close connections to the Bristol channel and twinned 
with the Atlantic Ocean.

☆  NEW!! Photo Break on Cosmic Loti

Images that are topical, thought provoking, funny, tragic, spiritual and a bit awesome (both in its original sense, and it’s current usage, meaning that it’s vaguely interesting).

Because our world exists as we perceive it, not as it is (in that it isn’t);
looking at it laterally can be quite helpful.

It’s high time I started sharing these little gems that are stored in my imagination, memory and hard dive. (They were saved for a rainy day LoL)

Let us know what you think 🙂

Clicking on them will probably take you to a parallel universe, and a related post. Or it might not….

Hey, and guess what
that flood barrier didn’t work.

Awaken to 2014 with a New SuperMoon

Affirmations and qualities to promote
for the Capricorn Supermoon.

 New Super Moon !

The New Moon in Capricorn January 1st 2014 is a SuperMoon.
It’ll affect us all, regardless of star-sign.
* A SuperMoon is “
a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth.” 

“Capricorn is an earth element, cardinal mode of energy, so it is highly dynamic and has the potential to be excellent at management, organization and delegation.

The New Moon in Capricorn’s themes are letting go and paving the way for rebirth and aligning with quality and integrity…The climb to the top of the symbolic mountain may feel rough, yet imagine the new possibilities and view when you arrive at the peak.

With persistence and gentle discipline, all things may be achieved.”

Peaceful New Year & New Moon Blessings

It’s New year’s Eve !

What better time to have a peaceful party for peace.
Well, not a ‘party’ as such, more of a gathering of like minds in solidarity ;~)
Riding the waves of the energy shift towards a new dawn for Earth.

As the birds sing in the dawn,
so a new light dawns on planet Earth.
Solidarity
Planets connect in love and peace.

Asket, Pleiades, via Shanti
* (Solidarity – unity of feeling and action)

“Here,New Moon
in this moment –
there is a gathering
of kindred spirits,
and all there is to do
is to allow
a quieting down –
just a little,Stonehenge stars
just enough to hear
a soft whisper
of calm and of peace
and then ever so gently
taking one more step
just a little deeper,
here,Sun meditator
in the calmest part
of each of our hearts
as we gather
in the peace
of this place.”

_/\_

✧ from Laurie’s Notes:
a gathering of kindred spirits, about finding the natural path to our hearts.

Nelson Mandala. A Hero of Our Time

I didn’t know Mandela had died until I read the tributes to him this morning. Just reading how much he was respected and loved says everything. Total homage to him.

He was dearly loved, and is an inspiration to us all.
That’s an important point, too.

Mandela Continues in Us

If we value Mandela’s impact on the world, the best thing we can do is
to try and adopt his good qualities as your own. If everyone who loves him took on even a fraction of Madiba’s qualities, the world would transform overnight.

~ from Kadampa Life, “I am the master of my fate” ~ a tribute to Nelson Mandela.

As the Idealistic Rebel says:

We need to pick up his words and ideals and carry on for him.
If all of us who believe in peace and freedom do one extra act of peace in his memory, he will never be forgotten.

~ from “The World has lost Nelson Mandela”

Mandela Quotes

 ✿ڿڰۣ

Reiki Heidi once asked on hereWhere are the people like him [MLK] today?? We still need heroes…

Maybe the answer to this question lies in Mandela’s

“A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.”

After all, it is within all our capabilities to develop these, don’t you think…?

Our Deepest Fear

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. 
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. 
It is our light, not our darkness
That most frightens us.

We ask ourselves
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? 
You are a child of God.

Your playing small 
Does not serve the world. 
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking 
So that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, 
As children do. 
We were born to make manifest 
The glory of God that is within us.

It’s not just in some of us; 
It’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, 
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. 
As we’re liberated from our own fear, 
Our presence automatically liberates others.

By Marianne Williamson
(often mis-attributed to Mandela, but I’m glad he made it famous.)

.¸¸.✧

I like that they’re smiling and singing in celebration of his life,
rather than sad and mourning his death.

Buddha and the Hidden Universe

…an excellent post on microcosmic perspectives.

I’m not the biggest fan of creepy-crawlies, but often rescue drowning critters.

Total respect to Buddha for stating that ALL in the animal realm have a body and mind; and as such don’t want to suffer anymore than I or anybody else does.

Happy Equinox as well Everybody!

At 8.44pm GMT, the Sun passes the celestial equator moving south.
This marks the first day of Autumn in the northern hemisphere and the first day of Spring in the south.

Images and poem in Meredith’s ‘Summer’s Pause’ (link below).

Kadampa Life

BuddhaToday, September 22, is Buddha’s Return from Heaven Day, one of my favorite anniversaries of the Buddhist calendar. This is why I like it:

“On this day we celebrate Buddha’s return from the desire god realm called Land of the Thirty-three Heavens, where he had been to visit his mother who had been reborn there.

Traditionally this day also marks the end of the summer retreat. Every year, during the summer months, Buddha did a three-month retreat with his disciples. His reason for doing this was to avoid harming insects and other animals.

If we go out a lot during the summer months we will naturally kill more insects and other animals than at other times of the year. The nature of Buddhadharma is compassion – an unbiased compassion that is not just for human beings but for every living being, including animals.” ~ From a talk by Geshe Kelsang…

Martin Luther King’s Vision of Equality

mlk 50th

Happy 50th anniversary to the iconic Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

May we increasingly make the dream our reality.

Part of MLK’s stirring speech, made 50 years ago this week:

The full text of MLK’s speech, from the National Archives.

MLK 50th

I have a dream

* nb.  It is not particularly ‘Buddhist‘, or ‘Spiritual‘ to stand aside when injustice is done.

Like MLK says, anger isn’t best.
Forget the resentment; by holding a controlled mind we have a powerful weapon.
Mentally stepping back from the situation gives us emotional space. Allows us the power we need.
Then just standing for justice promotes it; and those who are oppressed have a valuable friend. (times by however many stand by them).

If we are one consciousness, then anybody else’s injustice, becomes our injustice!
NO more looking the other way.
Davis Icke (via We Are Change):

Conversely, if we do stand aside and look the other way, then evil will flourish; because good men have done nothing.

Now is the Time

to Let Freedom Reign.

“Let freedom reign. The sun never set on so glorious a human achievement.”
