Magnanimity Becomes Love

ABOUT THE CALENDAR OF VIRTUES

    The Calendar of Virtues represents a year-round opportunity to practice Virtue Transitions while outer nature is going through analogous changes. Your inner practice will be reflected in the outer world which can strengthen your experience. PLEASE POST YOUR INSIGHTS IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW.

CALENDAR OF VIRTUES FEB 21 – MAR 20: 
Magnanimity Becomes Love
In
By Jean Yeager

IN NATURE
            At the Spring Equinox the gesture is one of the world opening its arms wide – balancing day and night. The nest building activity is well underway, lambing, calving sharing of natural space. Even the large flocks of birds share the air-space over some cities. The gesture is larger and larger – the magnum.  With Nature responding to the Sun, growth and life becomes more verdant. In some parts of the hemisphere, nature is already going wild.
            It is easy to see that such growth can give way to love as fruiting and birthing happens.

IN THE HUMAN BEING
            Reliance on community becomes greater as the spring and natural world gets into  expansiveness. The garden is the natural place where lovers throughout the centuries have conducted their affaires. Even the Kitchen Gardens, which are the places where the chefs or cooks grow the tastiest herbs for their guests, are the place where the generosity of the garden is shared with the guests – a loving touch.

OPPOSITE: CRITICSM, COMMENT
Closing one’s self off from the world by being critical the opposite gesture at this time of year.

STARTING MARCH 21 WE WILL BEGIN 
OBSERVING A NEW VIRTUES PAIR:
