Reflecting Mirrors

The other people in our lives are a mirror for us, a reflection of our inner work. When we disconnect and see them as being separate from us, we project our inner world outward. So some of the things we may not like in ourselves, we avoid. Then, we attract other people to play out those shortcomings for us. No matter what: all of our spiritual and emotional work is inner work. This can be very hard for people to accept because the tendency is always to try to change the world around us so that it suits us better. Most of the time, this dynamic goes on without us even being aware of it. Without awareness and insight, change and true growth is impossible. from the Heart ~ Cathy Ginter

Save The Elephant

While the current administration lifts the ban on importing elephant trophies to the US from Zimbabwe and Zambia, it is important to note that elephants are one of the most intelligent species on planet Earth. Moreover, the elephant family teaches the human family about unity and working together for the greater good ... if only we would stop, listen and learn. from the Heart  ~ Cathy Ginter #SaveTheElephant

Not "MeToo"

As long as boys are raised with notions such as “boys will be boys” when they hurt animals and other children, physical, emotional and sexual abuse will continue. As long as girls are raised that they are good when they are quiet and polite or that a beautiful face is more powerful than a beautiful brain, physical, emotional and sexual abuse will continue. Until we teach our children to respect others as well as themselves, the objectification of others that leads to physical, emotional and sexual abuse will continue.
Our job as parents is to empower our children to empower themselves … not to have power over one another, and it is much easier to teach our children well in their formative years than it is to try to repair the damage done once a child reaches adulthood.
