FantasticFarms.comAU states that Weeds are nature’s band-aids, placed by the wisdom of creation to heal and restore damaged soils. When farmers husband the life of the soil, as they do in organic agriculture, the improved conditions dissuade many weeds and favor their crops. The crops, being healthier, are also better able to compete with those weeds that are present.

The true symbol of Motherhood to me is pure unconditional love... I think of Mother Theresa as a manifestation of the Divine Femine. She cared for the dying with such love because she saw her Beloved in each of them. In her case her beloved was Jesus.
Here is a quote by Amma, that was part of her speech given at the Globel Peace Initiative of Women Religious and Spiritual Leaders. October 7, 2002 on the true meaning of motherhood:
The Dalai Lama shows that the essence of motherhood is inherent in both men and women. I don't know the source of the photo below of a young soldier and his baby but you can feel that he is oveflowing with love for his child. May we spread love to all we meet. Even when you are walking in the street and you see someone pass that you do not even know, say to them, silently, that you wish them love. They will receive your loving energy. Love is something that if you give it away, you end up having more.
Happy Mother’s Day to all! Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti, Namaste! May your day be filled with blessings. Love and hugs, Rosie

- · The gift of silence
- · The importance of holding strong intentions for everything you do or want to create.
- · How to create and hold sacred space
- · When in a state of worry, to take the mountain view, - from perspective your problems don’t often seem so great.
- · Remember to create and speak from the HEART not the head.
- · Never label anyone in a negative role. That only holds them there. See everyone as a reflection of God
- · Before you teach a class, hold in your heart the soul of every participant and assistant, even before they show up, even if you haven’t met them before. Hold that their highest good be supported and their soul will flower and flourish.
- · We are reflecting and transmitting light in our drawings and remember that we are not the doers , we are receiving this Divine light and expressing it.

On a recent trip to the mountains, I only brought along some crayon pastels and tag board thinking I might makes some quick studies of the beautiful mountain landscapes around. I was feeling very connected to the nature around me but instead of a landscape, I felt like making a mandala. What else is new? I revisited an old project that I used to do with my younger elementary school art students - Scratchboard, although we used to call it “black magic”. You can create your own scratchboard using either crayon or crayon pastels. Pressing firmly, cover the entire piece of paper or tag board, making sure not to leave any paper uncovered, and then cover completely with black crayon, black ink or tempera paint mixed with some dish or hand soap liquid so it will stick to the waxy crayon. Afterwards we scratch our design into the black paper and uncover all the colors below. It felt like I do was doing scrimshaw rather constructing a mandala. Although I think it was a nice change and kids of all ages will love it. I only had a nail and my compass point to work with but there are tools available with varied thicknesses. If you try it, make sure to use some newspaper underneath to catch the bits of black crayon that you scratched off, and let me know how it goes. Love, Rosie

Here are two recent drawings using colored pencil and black paper…and of course my beloved compass.
I have always been intrigued by sacred geometry, and lately I have been enjoying creating Flower of Life mandalas. Drawing this sacred symbol in various ways can fill a lifetime and each time I finish one, I feel more energized and connected to source. The flower of life is a name given to a sacred geometrical figure consisting of evenly spaced over lapping circles. that are arranged so that they form a flower-like pattern with a sixfold symmetry like a hexagon. The center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter. The Flower of Life contains perfect form, proportion and harmony and is said to contain the patterns of the creation of the Universe. This pattern is thousands of years old and found in many of the world religions.The Flower of Life symbol shown of the right is an ancient carving set in stone at the Temple of Osiris at Abydos, Egypt.
