Welcome to wholehearted.blog!
Nothing gives me greater joy than inspiring and encouraging people. Hence this blog!
I wanted to create an online oasis, a space to come to revive your heart and soul with life-affirming articles, quotes, poems, comments and musings, all of which accord with the Buddhist philosophy of respecting the dignity of all life.
I particularly have women in mind, to help us come together to strengthen ourselves. I believe that our voices are called for at this time in human history to help bring about a new ethos on our planet that respects and supports life, instead of exploiting and destroying it. But of course, like-minded gentlemen are also most welcome!
As Pam Montgomery points out in her wonderful book, Plant Spirit Healing, one of the basic tenets of nature (a.k.a. life) is that of interconnected and and interdependent relationships.
She says, “When we try to do it all ourselves, we often fall short because this is not how nature is designed. Everything in nature is interdependent; nothing stands alone.”
I hope you enjoy the content you find here.
An excellent book of fiction weaves a magic spell…
It is not just important, but also empowering, to repeatedly focus on what you want and where you “see” yourself going, rather than on all the scary things that might happen along the way.
Courage is like — it’s a habitus, a habit, a virtue: You get it by courageous acts. It’s like you learn to swim by swimming. You learn courage by couraging. ~ Mary Daly, radical feminist philosopher, academic, theologian Photo by Allie Smith on Unsplash
