Grounded Abundance

Happy Lunar Year of the female Earth pig. May you be blessed by grounded abundance…I’m working toward that for sure, but it’s all around us to see.

Our abundant elements.

Almost 99% of the mass of the human body is made up of six elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus. Only about 0.85% is composed of another five elements: potassium, sulfur, sodium, chlorine, and magnesium. All 11 are necessary for life.

During our rare West Coast snow while most of the US is buried in it, I took myself away from work for two hours to walk to woods and make a snow angel I haven’t done since I was five. More knitting later when I have something to share.

To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.

Lao Tzu

Abundance can be simply had by consciously receiving what has already been given.

Sufi saying

Everything you need will come to you at the perfect time.

Root yourself in this Earth, and it will root itself in you.

You are the sky. Everything else – it’s just weather.

Pema Chodron

Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.
