Happy St. Patrick's Day and Universal Truths

I am changing and beginning to see how ALL of religion actually celebrates life, birth and renewal. We just don't realize it. Religion is a universal celebration of life and nature and renewal. And how very silly of us to kill each other over who's is better when they are all the same.

Today is St. Patrick's Day, a day to wear your green. And the green is returning as my little world wakes up and returns to life. It is so majestic and wonderful to walk outside in the mornings to hear symphonies of bird songs and each day way, way high up in the sky are the long legged migrating birds headed west. Are they like the gray elves headed for the West?

On Ash Wednesday we received the ashes on our foreheads to remind us Of the Most Important Truth in the Universe.

Momento, homo,
Quia pulvis es,
Et in pulverem reverteris.

The most important truth in the Universe.

Remember, Man,
That thou art dust
And unto dust shalt thou return.

Remember, Woman,
That thou art water
And unto water shalt thou return.

Remember, Woman, thou art air
And unto air shalt thou return.

Unto earth shalt thou return

Moby We Are All Made of Stars
