Every spiritual tradition I know about emphasizes the concept of balance—the Taoist Yin-Yang, the Native American Medicine Wheel, the Judeo-Christian “to every thing there is a season…” and on and on. Today, prayerfully, as in Japan so much destruction and loss of life has happened, here at home I walked out into my garden to experience the opposite—the springtime emergence of life in all its newness and glory. This redbud tree, in full bloom, was, literally, loudly humming with life. There were so many bees blissed out in the blossoms that the whole tree was resonating with a vibrant song of spring. I send it along to help you hold the balance, to stand strongly in the place of life ongoing, even as we bear witness and respect the tragedy in Japan and elsewhere. Blessings on us all, in all conditions.

    I’ve taken to reading the news outside to emphasize the balance for me in as tangible way as possible. Thank you for the beautiful photo and reminder!
