Sending prayer blessings for peace and healing to our dear friend, Thích Nhất Hạnh. You are such a blessing to our world. from the Heart ~ Cathy Ginter
Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything, we cannot be free. ~ Thích Nhất Hạnh

In Support

What do you care about? What matters? Pursue that, forget the rest. ~ Brittany Maynard
I support Brittany's right to die with dignity. May we all have this choice when our time comes so that we can live each day of our lives with honor, courage and self-respect. from the Heart ~ Cathy Ginter

May 3 ~ World Press Freedom Day

I would like to thank all of the journalists around the world who risk their lives on a daily basis to expose corruption and abuse. Those who shine a light on the suffering of humanity, using only a camera and the written word, compel all of us to become more educated, socially involved and compassionate human beings.

An Earth Day Prayer

Dearest Mother, we are blessed with your generosity in providing the warmth of the morning light, rising in the vastness of the sky, your clear rivers, winding through the mountain valleys, and your cool breezes, rushing through the trees. Thank you for the sweet music of the birds and the rich bounty of your flowering meadows and fields. May we always remember to appreciate our interconnectedness with all that is ... and never forget our place among the sun and the stars.

from the Heart ~ Cathy Ginter

Soul Mates

The concept of searching for a soul mate is really an idealistic mind trap. What you are really saying is that you are looking for another person to conform to your idea of perfection forever and always. If you truly love someone, you will encourage them and support them to grow ... even when their personal growth leads them down a different path from yours. Thus, the true soul relationship is based on honesty, mutuality and respect.

2014 ~ Year of the Horse

Year of the Horse ~
Horse spirit is power through awareness. Horse brings strength and force into the energy field of the rider, which gives the rider the freedom to journey to far places. The gift of the horse is to release any desire to be in control. Instead, the best possible intention of the rider is to surrender to the horse's being which, in turn, allows the horse to carry its charge forward on his/her true path. Thus, horse medicine is complete surrender of ego.
