#FridayFantasy . . . Ethereal pastime




“Hide-and-seek they then played amidst the floating flowers. Rama sank down until his face only was seen, and Sita, who searched for him, knew not whether she saw the face of Rama or a blue lotus bloom on the surface of the pond.”

From “The Ramayana,” ancient Indian epic poem. Illustrated by Warwick Goble, 1915.

Patience is power…




“Patience is power.
Patience is not an absence of action;
rather it is “timing”
it waits on the right time to act,
for the right principles
and in the right way.”

~ Fulton J. Sheen

Wisdom from Tao Te Ching!


“The highest good is like water.
Water gives life to the ten thousand things and does not strive.
It flows in places men reject and so is like the Tao.
In dwelling, be close to the land.
In meditation, go deep in the heart.
In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.
In speech, be true.
In ruling, be just.
In business, be competent.
In action, watch the timing.”

~ Tao Te Ching ~

Tones of kindness!

Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.

Kindness in giving creates love.”

Happy spring equinox!


Happy Spring Equinox! Today is one of equal light and dark in the Northern Hemisphere, a time of ‘in-between’ when the veils between worlds are thinner. The equinox acts like a bridge between worlds, rather like twilight; a magical period of transition….

Even just some quiet time in reflection to allow whatever shifts may want to occur, whether you’re in any way conscious of those or not, can be of benefit.

It can also be a good time to take a moment to write down some wishes and dreams, visualize positive outcomes, connect to your bright future, etc.

Of course, it’s not like any day can’t be a time for the above!

The Equinox energy continues for the 3 days after, so it’s an opportunity to harness energies for manifesting over the next few days if you wish.

Set some positive intentions, hold some visions, and take active steps where appropriate, etc….

Wishing you a wonderful Equinox however you’re spending it!

There’s much to receive you can’t put a name to during this midway time of transition.

Much love,

  • Aine Belton

…be yourself!


“The snow goose need not bathe
to make itself white

Neither need you do anything
but be yourself”

– Lao Tsu

Do you have the patience?


Do you have the patience

to wait until your mud settles

and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving

until the right action arises by itself?

– Lao tse

May the chirping of birds replace the crackle of gunfire!


“When I travel around the globe, people from war-stricken countries often come to see me.
Women from these areas tell me, ‘We wake up in the morning to the sounds of gun-fire and screaming.
Our children cling to us in fear and cry; we also hold onto them and cry.
It’s been so many years since we awoke to the chirping of birds.’

Let us pray that the crackle of gunfire in such places
is soon replaced by the sweet sounds of chirping birds,
and that the young and old alike burst into laughter instead of tears.”

“And it often seems as though the fools are winning….
but that is just a false perspective.
There is a new, positive energy in the world today and it is gradually making itself more manifest.”
