Love Is Life

Leo Tolstoy

Leo Tolstoy by Repin

Love hinders death.
Love is life.
All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love.
Everything is, everything exists, only because I love.
Everything is united by it alone.
Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source.

– Leo Tolstoy

Five Ways To Better Sleep

Sleep Better Five Tips

Sleep is critical for our well-being. But an increasing number of people struggle with getting proper sleep. Either they are unable to get enough sleep or the quality of sleep is not good. Here are five things you can do to improve sleep:

1. Switch off – Overstimulation and information overload are some key disrupters of sleep. It is important to learn to switch off and unplug. As the day draws to a close dim the lights, amp down the music, disconnect from the Internet, and switch off the TV. Use your smart phone’s “Do not disturb” settings so that the phone does not buzz, ping, beep, or ring at night. If you have sleep issues then you have to go off all stimulants: tea, coffee, alcohol, spicy food, and drugs. If you have to have your tea or coffee then make sure this is consumed no later than early afternoon.

2. Get the sun – Getting enough light during the day is vital for better sleep. When direct sun hits our skin it produces various hormones that regulate our biorhythm. Not only do these improve our mood, they also ensure that we get good sleep at night.

3. Cool off the bedroom – As we enter the deep sleep phase of our sleep cycle, our body temperature drops. If the bedroom temperature is too high or you are too hot inside your blanket then this may interfere with your sleep. Also make sure that there is no TV, laptop, or other distraction in the bedroom and all lights are switched off.

Homecoming

Divine Mother And the Great Mother said:

Come and give me all that you are.
I am not afraid of your strength and darkness,
of your fear and pain.
Give me your tears.
They will be my rushing rivers and roaring oceans.
Give me your rage.
It will erupt into my molten volcanoes and rolling thunder.
Give me your tired spirit.
I will lay it to rest in my soft meadows.
Give me your hopes and dreams.
I will plant a field of sunflowers and arch rainbows in the sky.
You are not too much for me.
My arms and heart welcome your true fullness.
There is room in my world for all of you,
all that you are.
I will cradle you in the boughs of my ancient redwoods
and the valleys of my gentle rolling hills.
My soft winds will sing you lullabies
and soothe your burdened heart.
Release your deep pain.
You are not alone and you have never been alone.
~ Linda Reuther
