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.

Upon his thumb, as he held open his newspaper, wings outstretched to receive the heat of the sun, sat a tiny and lovely butterfly. Again the smile, rich with contentment and wonder at his good fortune. I bent closer to get a look at the beauty perched upon his thumb. "That is so cool", said I, for lack of a term at hand closer to his generation. We paused together momentarily, watching this small creature that had for a tiny space in time managed to bring together two humans unlikely to have ever been brought together...

Today, I offered Maya a bite of my sandwich so she could try the sauce. She made a face that looked like ‘I don’t want to,’ but she didn’t say anything, so I said, “Oh you don’t have to.” She laughed and said with confidence, “I know I don’t have to take a bite if I don’t want to!” Beaming a bright smile, she reflected further, “because why would I have to?!?” She giggled at how silly the idea of her having to do something against her will was...
Editor´s Note from Sylvia Poareo: I love sharing some of the ways my daughter shows me over and over again how powerful our own authentic sense of power is. I am grateful for her example that is an example to all of us!

Love is a currency overflowing with romantic hyperbole and hollywood luster. Love is the subject of countless tales of the imagination and fantasy. In relationships, love develops as a bond between people. When does it overstep the mark of feeling (love) and doing (love) and become something more nefarious?...
Editor´s Note from David Arenson: At what point does “I love you” become “I own you?” How much love you feel for another says everything about the love you are able to give to yourself – the relationship you have with yourself is the most important relationship you have.

The way that I see it is that without self-acceptance your spiritual path is 'spiritual entertainment' at best. I mean you might as well watch a movie and just observe someone else going through a transformation. It's so true...

I accept the fact that you may judge me, but I drink coffee and at this particular moment I have no intention of stopping. I was on a successful coffee fast for over a decade when evil forces disguised as the guy behind the counter at The Coffee Bean sucked me back in, and I could not be more grateful...
Editor's Note from Brooke Nisbet: I must admit that I love coffee... so anything putting coffee and yoga together is notable in my book! The author is yoga instructor and studio owner, Ally Hamilton. In this piece, she reminds us that sometimes the simplest thoughts or gestures on your part, may turn out be something important or special to someone else. So, be mindful of the energy you spread.

Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: Now that it's summertime you're more apt to spot a dolphin breaching along the shore. Enjoy this wonderful article about the messages dolphins have for us when they cross our paths.
