A Healthy Eco-system Feeds our Spirituality

Eight years ago this did not exist.

What is now Bealtaine Cottage, sat in the middle of three very barren, small fields.

It is difficult for me to relate to the sad scene I first encountered at that time.

Much has changed during the recent years.

The land has blossomed into abundance.

An abundance I find hard to keep up with.

Scant topsoil, clinging to daub on shallow bedrock seemed impossible.

It was another Findhorn project in the making.

Everything that was reality then has been turned on its head.

This was not possible…every note of common sense and knowledge re-inforced that.

So, what has happened?

The simple answer is, I do not know.

The more complex answer is, energy…physical and spiritual energy.

This energy is linked to the Divine.

Our Earth appears to be in the beginning phase of the process of shifting into a divine and higher  level of consciousness.

I feel it is possible to make a conscious link to the vast energy of Nature that enfolds us.

Every living thing drinks in the energy of the sun in one form or another.

That is the very visible and tangible understanding of what is happening.

For us to make the conscious link, it is necessary to be aware and ultimately inspired by it all.

The New Age

Bealtaine Cottage 007

We are living in a time of flux…All is change.

Many of us are seeing the potential in this continuous change and regard it as an awakening to The Age of Ecology.

The Age of Corporatism continues in its most ugly form, sucking in souls to its relentless mantra of buy/consume, buy/consume…

Economic growth in a finite world?

What was has almost destroyed our world, as more and more of humanity come to realise.

As many move away from the corporate model we once embraced, the world appears different to our eyes…we are living, alive, sensory deprived human beings.

How much does one person need in order to feel happy?

We used to inherit items we treasured thereafter…

Economic growth?

MORE pollution, consumerism, ill-health, war, alienation, depression…

We need a new model for life, something better to aspire to…

To live a better life, with fewer products.

To leave some of the raw materials in the Earth.

To stop taking and grabbing and wanting…

To consider the people yet to live.

Realising our present path is leading our precious Earth to TOTAL Ecological Collapse.

There has never been this amount of consumer goods on our planet.

There has never been this amount of sickness, despair, depression and anxiety.

Conscious living.

Being fully aware of what we do, buy, eat, share, give and…think.

We are in transit from the Age of Pisces.

This began with the birth of Christianity and is represented by the fish.

Much of what has been experienced over the past two thousand years, has been shadowed and darkened by patriarchy, in its most virulent form.

This is a time to leave behind what we now see as futile!

We are entering a new age… An Age of great change

The Age of Aquarius…
