Too Hard to Love Them? Just be Kind.

We are often encouraged to love one another, to love ourselves, and to understand that the very ground of being is love. But, the English word "love" is loaded. It is rife with multiple meanings and is tossed about in the vernacular like a half-deflated soccer ball. Simply put, it can be [...]

You Have No Control: Becoming a Conscious Gardener

Psst… You have no control over your garden. Though our egos - and agri-business - would have us believe otherwise, we can never control nature. Attempting to force Gaia to bring forth only what we want, when we want, and how we see fit is a recipe for dysfunction. At the same [...]

What Do We Do Now?

So, what do we do now?   Yes, Australia is burning. Yes, the person at the helm of our country has bombed Iraq and killed one of the most powerful Iranian military commanders, quite possibly instigating WWIII. The climate is in turmoil, our government cares nothing for representing the people and seeks [...]
