Green Wedding

By: Lee Flynn

When most of us think about weddings, we think about extravagance. Many weddings become less about a happy couple tying the knot and more about putting on a big, over-the-top show for friends and family.

Maria felt stuck because she thought the employee had some useful skills but clearly others felt otherwise. The pressure was mounting. What should Maria do? Follow her gut? Succumb to the pressure?

Why Are You Here?


To be specific, why are you here on the Earth?  Have you ever considered that you might be here to participate in the life system on this planet, not only take from it?

Noticing Earth’s Troubles? Why It’s Meaningful To Acknowledge Them, Send Love, And Surround Them With Light.

Send light to the earth

We’re daily aware of so many troubles on the Earth that we can’t heal—at least, not yet.  Maybe there’s smog or drought where you live, flooding or species extinction.  I drive to do an errand and notice the air is heating up, the smog building.  How is it for the birds and trees in hot, smoggy weather like this, I wonder, or the kids in my city who have asthma?  Yes, I’m driving an electric car but still—it’s a car.  Cars around me spew exhaust.  I close my windows.  I’d give a lot to heal this all, right now, here in my city and in other cities, too.  I yearn to repair climate change and eliminate air pollution.  I’m not able to do that.  What I can do, though, and you can, too, is surround the problems with light.  So often we think our choices are either activism or denial, but there’s a precious third way: acknowledge the problem, send love, and surround it with light.  Acknowledge, love, light.  Let me explain why this matters.

Finding Stillness With Stones


If you’re someone who feels the strain of a fast-paced life, there’s an ally in nature who can help you experience a restful pace.  I’m talking about stones and the slowness of ‘stone time.’  If you have scientific leanings, you might prefer to call it ‘geologic time.’  Scientifically speaking, geologic time is a phrase we use to describe the eons of Earth’s history, each one millions of years long.  (You can explore what we know about them at the Smithsonian’s Geologic Time website.)  It can feel mind-bogglingly abstract to try to wrap your head around Earth’s 4.6 billion year history.  I find it easier to personalize this by focusing on how you can connect to what I’ll call stone time, which is the slow depth we can encounter when we give our attention to stones.

Double bagged groceries

Atlanta grocers possess a deep and unyielding passion for plastic bags. They adore them. I don’t. So naturally we’ve had some interesting altercations at the far side of the scanner.
