From the Editors:
Blessed be the coming spring! As Scottish ecologist and thinker Sir Patrick Geddes said, "By leaves we live." His simple observation is almost a mantra for meditation. Soon the miracle of new leaves and flowers will burst before us in all their color and fragrance, birds will find mates and build nests, and all the other animals will follow in kind. May our love for this earth protect and care for her as we navigate our way through all the human drama and folly. Hopefully, we will rise above what ails us and meet the future with wisdom and much, much love. Teresa of Avila once said, "The important thing is not to think much, but to love much, and so do that which much stirs you to love." We might add, let our thinking be love-centered as well.

I’ve just come in from shoveling snow from the third consecutive winter storm this week. This, with the cartilage-free zones of my knees which are about to be guillotined from my legs and replaced with metal and plastic joints next month. more

A Haunted Beauty
Maureen Spagnolo says about this shot: "A road less traveled - taking a turn off the main highway can lead to treasures like this one where one just has to stop and look: An abandoned farmhouse with a dusting of snow; a haunted beauty where folks once lived and flourished in Maryland."

The Universe is Made of Love
~ received in prayer on New Year's Day, 2017
by Peter Falkenberg Brown
Jan 1, 2017
When two humans meet and regard each other as sacred creatures resonating with the love and beauty of the universe, a musical chord moves across the expanse. Real peace between humans is birthed at the soul level, where love begins. In that place, each human is equal, and free to resonate with their own unique and mysterious connection to the Source. more

The God Who is Always with Us
by Peter Falkenberg Brown
Dec 1, 2016
From God, my Dear Beloved:
The more you become aware that I am made of love and with that love I am inhabiting you, living with you and as you, and also surrounding you with my embrace—the more you become aware of my presence of love, then the more you will be able to Be Love. You will grow into a Being of Love, expressing love with every breath, thinking and feeling love in every moment. Your nature that I created is to be love, to live as a Being of Love. more
