Science of Mind
This month, I have attended a couple of courses; one being Science of Mind 101 and the teachings of Earnest Holmes and I finished my Introduction to Radio Broadcasting. Mr. Holmes was the founder of the United Centers for Spiritual Living. He was born in January, 1887, and passed on at the ripe old age of 73.
Dr. Holmes developed a universal philosophy and tools for spiritual living that profoundly resonate to this day. His work provides us with a personal spiritual path, an understanding of our relationship with the Universe, and a connected and joyful approach to daily living.
His teachings showed me some helpful ways to deal with life situations and challenges; and to see things in a whole new positive way. It fits very well with the teachings of “The Secret” and a lot of my favourite authors and life inspirations such as Bob Proctor, Dr. Wayne Dyer and Lisa Nichols.
As summer approaches one of the most beautiful things I notice are the butterflies. As a result, I have decided, once again, to raise these lovely creatures.
They are amazing to watch as they metamorphasize from a egg, to caterpiller, pupa, emerging butterfly, to the lovely adult butterfly we have come to know and love. The larvae I have gotten is called the Painted Lady (pictured). I can't wait to watch the progress and developement and to share it with you.
Here are a couple things about butterflies you may not know:
- Butterflies and caterpillars don’t breath through their mouths; they have holes in the sides of their abdomens called spiracles which is what they use to breathe.
- They don't drown easily. If you find what you think may be a drowned caterpillar you can help it out and dry it off. Often, they get their life back in just a few hours.
There are all sorts of butterfly legends and stories which are fascinating to read. If you would like to learn more, click on the photograph of the butterfly to see the fascinating google entries that show up.
Love and Laughter your way!
