Summer light becomes golden, the cicadas sing their ceaseless anthem.A hearty dusty feeling pervades the landscape. The horse drawn wagon pulls us slowly and steadily forward, we hear the echoes of the hooves as they hit the packed earth clop, clippity -clop, clip pity -clop…

This season creeps upon us. It is only when the harvest, the season of nourishment encompasses us fully that we find ourselves immersed in Earth time.It is the season of harvest, reaping the bounty of the dark earth to feed us on a physical and spiritual level. We need total nourishment. Just as a mother gives her love unconditionally to her child, we find the earth offering us the foundations for a nourished body, mind and spirit.

“We mainly feed our bodies pay little attention to the spirit.” – J. R Worsley

With out proper digestion and assimilation we can not utilize the energy from our food, leaving us depleted, empty and ungrounded.

Earth, a time to feed ourselves physically with fresh fruits and vegetables, spiritually with practice and grounding. Digest and relax, appreciate the cycles of energy as they transform within and without.

Key Words: Stability, Nourishment, Mother, Abundance, Distribution, Store
