If people are sending out negative energy and not meeting your expectations, it is important to send them unconditional love. They are simply being themselves, doing the best they know how. You will find great inner peace when you do not need others to act in a certain way to be happy yourself. When you send someone unconditional love, it is no longer possible for you to be harmed by his or her negative energy.

Taking The Time

It is extremely important to take care of your spiritual self, just as it is to take care of your physical body. I know for many of us (especially those of us who are mothers) we spend our time and energy taking care of others and often neglect ourselves. When this happens you begin to deplete yourself and you become tired. Physically tired, emotionally tired, just tired. It may seem like you have absolutely NO time to do anything else, but trust me, you have time to take care of you.

There are many small things you can do to realign yourself with yourself, with the natural world, with spirit, with your faith. It can be as simple as taking your morning coffee or tea out onto your porch/balcony/somewhere outside (or sit by an open window so that you can feel the sun and the air on your face) and just relax and enjoy. Maybe it is morning meditation, walking the dog or sitting in front of your altar, lighting a candle or two and chanting. Or just sitting there completely silent. You have to take care of your spiritual self. If you are very limited on time, set an alarm. Allow yourself fifteen minutes of uninterrrupted time. Just like your car, you will need re-fueling to continue on your journey. This most definitely includes taking care that your spiritual and emotional needs are tended to the same as your dietary needs.

Take the time.

These images come form an egyptian manuscript from the 14th/15th centuries. It reproduces a persian astrological treatise from ~9th century - ‘Kitâb al-Mawalid’ - by Abû Ma’shar, said to have been the most influential document in the development of western astrology. It is otherwise known as ‘The Book of Nativities’ or ‘The Book of Revolution of the Birth Years’.
Although produced in Cairo, the manuscript illustrations were almost certainly by a persian artist. The 36 pages consist of a few devils or demons together with horoscope zodiac figures - usually 3 illustrations per zodiac sign.
Music by Vas, ‘Wajad’.

Forty One Ways

by Azam Ali

Forty one ways to die
One strong will to live
World’s gone all awry
Faith is the battlefield

Tender, I feel
And the wheels turn
To fortify a design of free will

Forty one ways to die
One strong pain to feel
Strapped to a suicide
With just one more place to be

Tender, I feel
And the wheels turn
To fortify a design of free will

We test, we form, we fear, we tilt
We strive, we fall, we want, we kill
And we hail, and we doubt
And with all waisted
We heal, and we call
We atone kneeled here
And will stray fortified
In a windfall

One of the loveliest photos I have seen in a long time.  It made my heart ache, as it’s been a while since I’ve had a moment like this in my life.  I’d like one now, please.
