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.

Flower Teaching

The flowers in my garden are some of my greatest teachers. They freely open their beauty and grace for all the world to see and ask for nothing in return, demonstrating the true meaning of unconditional love without speaking a single word. from the Heart ~ Cathy Ginter

Memorial Day Prayer

To our fallen soldiers and peacemakers across the globe, may your quest for democracy and freedom never be in vain. ~ Cathy Ginter

The Power of Love

While peace is our true nature, we must first learn that this peace flows most freely from within when we truly make peace with ourselves. Once we own this peace whole-heartedly, we will discover that we are also at peace with all the people in our lives. So yes, when we recognize that only love is real, we know this with every cell in our bodies, minds and spirits. This is what it means to fully own our personal power … for this power is the power of Love. ~ Cathy Ginter

Our Willingness ~

We have to watch what our mind is telling us, especially when old patterns of conditioning are at play. We cannot trust those thoughts that bring us down and/or hold us back. Blessedly, we can liberate ourselves along with everyone around us through our willingness to be in a space of love and forgiveness. in Joy ~ Cathy Ginter

Laughing Buddha

All perception is ultimately an illusion constructed out of our conditioning, a mere fragment of any given circumstance, and never the entire truth. As such, we begin to understand that no one has to be wrong and that nothing is personal. From this vantage point, there is nothing to be attached to, and the need for conflict instantly falls apart. Comically, we have no-thing to defend but yet another illusion. If we can see this clearly, we can laugh at ourselves and lighten up, ending the needless and seeming endless suffering of humanity. This approach releases all the energy we waste in conflict and allows us to find creative solutions, to make music and to celebrate Life. Much like the Buddha, laughing in the garden, where is the problem Now? ~ Cathy Ginter

A Beacon for Love

The practice of whole-hearted acceptance does not mean that we have the right to act out our unhappiness with violence. Neither are we justified in blaming another person for what we are feeling. In actuality, until we are willing to take full responsibility for our own emotions, we remain stuck with our wounds and our victim mentality. Gratefully, I am seeing that surrender is one of the most effective tools in the healing process. Of course, it is not necessary to either like or to avoid any self-indulgent behavior. The important thing is to realize that there is a soft flicker of hope behind the eyes of every wounded child. With encouragement and patience, this soft flicker of hope can glow ever brighter until it blossoms into a beacon for the Light of Love. ~ Cathy Ginter

New Moon Wisdom

It is so easy to judge those who think and behave differently than we do, and dismiss them outright as hopeless. However, we never know when God is going to get in someone's head and turn on the light. Be patient and be kind with everyone whose path crosses yours. Remember that we are all God's children, and they are our brothers and sisters as well. with Love from the Heart ~ Cathy Ginter

Full Moon ~ Global Prayer for Peace

7:00-7:30 PM EST

We have the potential to create a powerful ripple effect of peace and wellbeing when we pray and/or meditate together, which amplifies the experience for each of us. And as waves of our positive vibrations flow outward, we raise the collective consciousness of the whole world.

Love is that ocean without boundary or shore ~
