Autumnal Equinox

Are you going to do anything different today? 

After all, our mother, the earth, Gaia, is stopping in her tilt to start turning the other direction.  On...

    Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at 3:21 pm EDT, the EARTH WILL STAND STILL (while still spinning!) and lead us into Autumn and then Winter.

    I feel so very connected to the people who erected Stone Hinge today! And then all my own ancestors who grew crops and tended animals in order to survive, those who would know that on this day each year, there was 12 hours of daylight to match 12 hours of night.

    Stop.

    Stop your business. 

    Go away from your screen. 

    Look at the sky, the earth, any natural plants around you. 

    Get somewhat connected again back to your belonging to all that brings us our lives.

    As a famous scientist said...

    A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. ~ Albert Einstein

    Not only the older ways are amazing. Here's a video from Pandemic Times, showing the way we  still came together in music! Thanks to fellow blogger Myth and Moor.

    2. Your description of how this works makes my head hurt. I thought we covered this once before. Help me, Ronda. :)

      1. I only think of how a top spinning has wobbles and will tilt from one direction to another on its axis. Not sure why that's hard to understand. Hope Ronda can help you.
