Wisdom, Justice, and Love

Vegas_2017_Wisdom

Just celebrated the United States birthday of being 241 years old! Proud to be here but I really need to travel more. It really pays to know your history, it guides you into sorting out the core values of life and to gear toward what’s really important.

Still learning to go beyond jack of all trades – but things seem scattered picking a single thing to specialize in. It’s good to know, and wisdom is acquired very slowly. I talk to the older crowd to get direction with that.

Getting more organized and being stern to core values are key to directing inner happiness. To many of you reading this, just reading through some previous posts will assist in your own health and overall wellness.

The number 28 is very fascinating,  I continue to grow along side of concepts with astrology, meshing with math. Exploring the beauty of geometry all around us is very rewarding.

Also, wisdom, justice, and love are 3 things that inspire to build a strong moral guideline, that helped me stay positive and strong.

Continue to stay healthy and live for those core values.

Also on April 22,2016 – the landmark Paris Agreement is scheduled to be signed by the United States, China, and 120 other countries on earth day.

This signing agreement satisfies a key requirement for the entry into force of the historic draft climate protection treaty adopted by 195 nations present at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris.

I encourage everyone to plant something, anything. Plant a seed on earth day.

Live, love, hope, dream.

Spring is HERE!

Spring is here! Already! March the 20th will begin all the bloom and allergies! Joy!

Springtime is often associated with the ideas of rebirth, regrowth and renewal of the Earth as plants begin to bloom and we all experience a slight taste of the warmer months to come. The first official day of spring is marked annually by the vernal equinox. For 2014, the official start of the equinox is March 20, 2014.

Spring!

AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dan Kottlowski defines the Vernal Equinox as when the sun crosses the equator going south to north.

“The event happens during the Earth’s orbit around the sun and simultaneously on the imaginary dome of our sky. The equator is an imaginary line drawn right around Earth’s middle, like a belt. It divides Earth into the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere,” Kottlowski said.

Truths of the Equinox

In years past, however, the equinox has been rumored to do more than just bring the sun’s rays to the Northern Hemisphere.

According to folklore, it’s rumored that you can stand a raw egg straight up on the day of the equinox.

“If you have enough focus and patience, you can do this anytime of year. In actuality, the sun will affect a much larger area, but on a small area like an egg it won’t make it any easier to stand up,” said Kottlowski.

Originating from Latin, equinox means ‘equal nights,’ and as a result it is rumored that there must be equal hours of both day and night (12 hours).

“No, that’s really more astronomical than anything we get closer with the equal length of day and night based on the effects of daylight saving. The one place where you’d probably see the most equality between day and night is at the equator, somewhere like Quito, Ecuador,” said Kottlowski.

According to rumors, the equinox is the best time to see the sun rise due east and set due west.

“The equinox provides a clear trajectory of the sun’s arch, so on the equinox if you’re driving on a flat road that runs east to west, for example, you’ll be driving into work to the east and facing the sun and you’d be coming home in the west and still facing the sun,” Kottlowski said.
