Declaration of the Four Sacred Things

Declaration of the Four Sacred Things
The Earth is a living, conscious being. In company with cultures of many different times and places, we name these things as sacred: air, fire, water, and earth.
Whether we see them as the breath, energy, blood, and body of the Mother, or as the blessed gifts of a Creator, or as symbols of interconnected systems that sustain life, we know that nothing can live without them.
To call these things sacred is to say that they have a value beyond their usefulness for human ends, that they themselves become the standard by which our acts, our economics, our laws, and our purposes must be judged. No one has the right to appropriate them or profit from them at the expense of others. Any government that fails to protect them forfeits its legitimacy.
All people, all living things, are part of the earth life, and so are sacred. No one of us stands higher or lower than any other. Only justice can assure balance; only ecological balance can sustain freedom. Only in freedom can that fifth sacred thing we call spirit flourish in its full diversity.
To honor the sacred is to create conditions in which nourishment, sustenance, habitat, knowledge, freedom, and beauty can thrive. To honor the sacred is to make love possible.
To this we dedicate our curiosity, our will, our courage, our silences, and our voices. To this we dedicate our lives.

It’s Difficult To Be An Old School Romantic When Your Whole Generation Is Into Hookup Culture

It has always been my intent to have the love

that endured , thru time .. endless love

worthy of trying times and peace that comes

comes from knowing each matters , intimacy

is reality , 2gether in spirit …

1st – 9 months was just walking thru the motions

much like a jail sentence , I felt I had to marry

the boy , who had no idea of who I was, nor himself .

Calling me Spooky , he broke all vows , as well

as abused me .. 9 months was conformation and

affirmation …property I was not ..

I allowed him to charge me with desertion ,

and pushed thru guilt , having lost my virginity

created a compliance to a sex addict/cheater ,

which was known within my siblings

even double dates with brother in his cheating .

Letters , attested to the brotherhood of holding

secrets and lies ..

Uber close to Mother , who was law .. Cold towards

me ..

-2

2-3 Weeks ,

A very cute man, a party in Pungo Beach

brownies and instant like had him ask

me to move in …a soul mate with addictions

going nowhere , allowed me to say No

to moving in and yes to marriage .

It was a situation where he had the upper floor

of a huge home in Norfolk , his Mom

and maid downstairs …he expected I would

work and he could do …whatever .

I returned home, accepted , then broke an

engagement, moved to Richmond’s fan area

briefly, and returned , meeting , and married

within 6 months #3… 24 legal years .

I’m not sure I ever saw him in authentic self

42 years later ..

Knowing myself , I don’t sense marriage is

a reality , for the values my Granny held dear

were on her own , after her savage marriage

and divorce …

I’m not seen in the love light , as I would love

and stand for , just as I do children …

It’s taken years , years of set backs, but my

focus has been to have that experience

as my soul has searched for ..

I shall hold it within, as I continue the liberation

from all that took me way from my soul

intentions , and defined the very basic nature

of codes which I don’t feel should be received

as needy , so I hold my self .. No manual

it will be Thy Will, and I don’t feel a lack .

A simple life , of abundance in things many

take for granted , I will ever be grateful now

and the cherry on top would be the experience

of Divine Masculine …it really is Thy Will.

I’m not in limbo, searching or feel a lack

therefore …as I spend quality time , doing

what I what I require .. much in repose

knowing Peace, and Balance ..against odds

that try many souls ..

I am overjoyed that connections are being made

to that forever n ever kinda love, and foundation

we long for , exposing the renewal of the best

our hearts ♥️ and souls can offer ..

It’s a wonderful sign, an affirmation .

Now I lay my head down , certainly to sleep

and dream of a reality that’s tangible , not

only in dreams 🌈🎁😘❤️©️

Blessings & Peace ,

Doña Luna

Patience is Prayer …🤪🙏🏼💯

I am an average millennial but when it comes to romance, I’m what you call an old school romantic. However, it is slightly difficult to survive in a world where the basic idea of love is now swiping right or left on a mobile app. I see my friends meeting people at a cafe, event or club and instead of seeing where it goes, they end up hooking up and never seeing each other again.

An herb used in traditional medicine by Middle Eastern countries may help fight pancreatic cancer. Researchers have found that thymoquinone, an extract of nigella sativa seed oil, blocked pancreatic cancer cell growth and killed cells by enhancing programmed cell death. The findings suggest that thymoquinone could eventually have use as a preventative in those who have had surgery and chemotherapy or who are at risk of developing cancer.
