Venus is the brightest planet in the night sky. It shines like a silvery star. Venus is a planet that inspires great hope, love and desire. It is the planet of beauty. It is the force of attraction in the universe thus bringing things together to form a perfect whole. This force is Love.

When I say love, I am not only talking about the biological elements that cause chemical attractions, what has been called the "science of love" such as the study of dopamine and pheromones, the physiological components to mating. But I am also concerned with the metaphysical components of lovemaking, the poetics of the science of love. This poetics not only connects one’s lover in a mind, body and soul with the other, but also to the cosmos, biosphere and noosphere giving us a profound meaning for union.

Carol and Stacy: How important is it for you as a mom to instill a love for nature? And can you tell us about the day you made your nature mandala shared in the above picture?
Jessi: For me it is absolutely crucial to instill a love for nature in Sonora. It’s also something I think comes really naturally to children if given the chance. I think it is monumentally important for a child’s (and adult’s) mental, physical and spiritual well being to be in communion with nature.
Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Today we have a special treat for you! We wanted to share with you a mother who is on a quest to raise her daughter with a deep connection and appreciation to mother earth. We are always so inspired by the daily stories and experiences she shares on Facebook. We invited Jessi Elizabeth to join us on our Intentional Conscious Parenting blog to share a glimpse into her conscious parenting world.

The joy that comes from realizing that suffering in our lives comes from the meaning we have given it is unlimited.
I am not saying that painful things in your past didn’t happen, but what I am saying is that they no longer have to be painful...

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Does your fish taste like chicken? How did the model for corporate farming become so backwards that we are feeding chicken to fish? Fish farming sounds like an idea that supports a natural system; however, Chef Dan Barber gives a funny and poignant talk about how falling in love with few fish opened his eyes to the damage of a practice we've come to accept and support each time we buy a tuna or halibat. Critics of organic farming and practices often ask how we can feed the world from the little farmer down the road. Tune into this video and your eyes will open at the incredible fish farm that not only reverses the damage done by "conventional" methods, but also shows without a doubt that following the eco-systems 2 billion years of example will not only feed us, but save us.

The revelation of love is that all else vanishes or fades to nothingness when touched by the miracle of love – love overwhelms fear, melts it to oblivion, and reduces it to a distant memory...
Editor's Note from David Arenson: We suffer most when we are in fear. Sometimes the pain can seem insurmountable. At its core, suffering is an illusion. Our fear of suffering is often far worse than the suffering itself. To be identified with something outside of yourself, is to invite suffering.
