A Garden of Being

Campana's Gardens Metal Structure

My husband and I have had a garden party every summer for 15 years.  We invite our friends, neighbors, our staff and our business customers — most of who fit into the friend or neighbor category, too.

The picture is of a metal structure that was gifted to my husband by four really good friends for his upcoming birthday.  We intend to move it to “the perfect spot” when we find it.  We have 2 1/2 acres of paths, gardens, a pond, a vineyard and truthfully it’s just an awesome sanctuary, if I say so myself.

I came in from this sanctuary just moments ago and felt I had to state my gratitude for life’s design. I had been sitting at one of our newer seating areas — a new deck built by another good friend — and as I looked out on the property and looked at the pond and then watched my cat, Gloria, walk over to me and flop down beside me, I was moved to tears. Life has been good to me AND I’ve been good to life.  If it wasn’t for me following life’s designs throughout the years, I wouldn’t be sitting at the dining room table typing this into my blog.

Even our modest house is harkening me to tears:  the downstairs rooms painted several years ago by another good friend.  The colors:  Paprika and Sage Green in the kitchen, Cashew and Sage Green in the living room and Paprika in the hallway. The colors are still rich and stunning even after these several years.

Gratitude for this garden of being — inside and outside.  Gratitude for my garden of being — my body, my mind, my heart guided and served by Spirit.

Among the many aspects within my stewardship , I give tarot readings and the cards say this is a year of manifesting my dreams.  The cards never lie.

 

 

The Fifth Dimension

I had to laugh when I read the quote above.  I do enjoy Daylight Savings Time, but  I’m not at all sure what purp0se it serves…seems to me it was created to help the farmers plant earlier in the spring and harvest later in the fall.  Humans are so good at trying to manipulate time.  In the end, time is time.  We still have to live our lives in the moment.  Now.  And now.  And now.

The Third Dimension is the Material World; the Fourth Dimension is Time and Space; the Fifth Dimension is where time collapses and we live life in the present moment…what we think manifests.  The Age of Aquarius (go ahead and sing it…I know you want to).

When the moon is in the seventh house
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age
Of a Aquarius, the age of Aquarius
Aquarius, Aquarius
Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the minds true liberation
Aquarius, Aquarius
When the moon is in the seventh house
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age
Of a Aquarius, the age of Aquarius.

And no amount of harmony and understanding, sympathy and trust abounding, golden living dreams of visions, mystic crystal revelation or peace guiding the plants and love steering the stars will happen until human beings let go of their desire, their misdirected need to manipulate the Third and Fourth Dimensions.  

The Fifth Dimension awaits…I certainly have had the opportunity to witness manifesting in the moment, haven’t you?  Some people call these moments miracles or magic.  Yes, they are miracles and they are magic to the simple human mind.  For those of us who have experience with Spirit though, these moments are what happen when one lives in alignment with the Universe, letting go of any greedy insistence on getting “more” — whether it be more money, a bigger car, a better house — or in just wanting more time.

The Age of Aquarius is here.   The Fifth Dimension is available.  Rest in the assurance, the realization and tranquility that whatever is, IS.  It doesn’t need to be changed. 

The damage is done, but it’s not too late.  Healing happens in an instant when we live in the moment, receiving and accepting what comes to us with gratitude.  Gratefulness in all things…no picking and choosing.  Being present.  Laughing. Dancing.  Moving through life with Joy. 

When the moon is in the seventh house…
