Thought for the Week = just be a little kinder

No comments
The Dalai Lama claims that his religion is kindness. And he goes on to say that, ‘on a simple, practical level, kindness creates a sense of warmth and openness that allows us to communicate much more easily with other people’.
 Kindness can seem a little soft and old-fashioned today – something for a gentler, less hurried age – a time less caught up with efficiency and maximising profit.
The truth is that kindness is one of the most powerful, transformational forces we have and can solve many  problems. It has no downside -and  it costs nothing – it is not age or class specific….we can all do it…
And we need to exercise our kindness not just to others but to ourselves too- Shakespeare tell us..’Self love  is not so great a sin as self neglect’.   And also to other creatures living on our planet..
Let us try this week to be just a little kinder to ourselves and to one another and make our world a warmer, nicer place to live.
Aldous Huxley, the English author and philosopher, spent his life working on how to develop human potential – he tried yoga, meditation techniques, dance, taking drugs of all sorts, hypnotic trance and Zen.
In one of the last lectures he gave towards the end of his life he was asked, what was the most effective technique for transforming life.   “It is a little embarrassing” he said, that after years and years of research and experimentation, I have to say that the best answer is  – “just be a little kinder.”

Bee Blogs – October 2018

No comments
We are into November with the days closing in.  I always find this time of year a challenge – it  is not so a bad once we are into winter – it is the transition that challenges me. I imagine the bees find it challenging too.  After the carefree days of summer they are retreating into their cluster.  There is still some ivy in bloom and the bees are working it when they get the chance.  I still pass the hives almost every day but rarely do any work preparing for next year.
As the temperature drops there will be a variety of animals trying to make beehives their home for the winter especially mice. It is important to make sure all entrances are mouse proof.
Over the next months the main thing is to heft the hives from the side and behind to make sure each colony has still got enough supplies for the winter.
I am wondering about insulating under the roof of my wooden hives. I know some people who put on an empty super and fill it with wood shavings to keep the bees warm below. It seems a sensible idea and something I have never done.  It is also worth checking that roofs are watertight – dampness brings cold and makes for unhappy and unhealthy  bees.
Ventilation is a very important at this time of the year. To increase ventilation you can insert a hive tool under the rear of the crown board to crack the propolis seal. By placing a match under the crown board you create a small air-gap which will allow moisture-laden air from the winter cluster to escape. In this case you close the feed hole.
I have taken off very little honey. I read somewhere about a beekeeper who takes honey off in Spring when they are sure the bees have survived the winter. That sounded very sensible indeed!   The honey I have taken off I use as comb honey – I do cut-comb rather then extract honey. It is partly laziness but comb honey also has a number of advantages – it tastes better – the flavour is protected inside the comb.  It has health benefits – honey is purest when eaten straight from the comb.  I read about a vet in America who uses comb honey on wounds especially in dogs. Once cleaned, he puts comb honey on the wound to draw out the moisture and reduce the possibility of infection. He believes that nothing works better or faster than honey from the comb.  A dab of honey is very soothing for cuts or burns and protects against infection.
A teaspoon of local honey is thought to relieve allergy symptoms.  Your immune system becomes accustomed to local pollen in the honey. Local honey maybe be healthier because the bees produce it specifically to fight off infectious organism in that area.  One of the reasons honey is effective as an anti-bacterial agent is its hydroscopic quality – honey attracts moisture  better  than almost any other substance. Some people refer to it as a so called ‘dry liquid’. Another antibacterial property of honey is its acidity. It typically has a pH of less then 4. This is more acidic then almost anything we eat. Despite it being so acidic  honey is soothing when put on a wound or sore. It is the sweetness of honey that masks the acidity.
A dose of honey is also said to help relieve insomnia by releasing serotonin s in the brain to calm you down and induce sleep.
I came across a list of bee friendly actions we could all chose to implement.
Maintain natural flowering hedgerows.
Allow wild flowers to grow around the farm.
Provide nest sites for wild bees.
Minimize use of artificial fertilizers.
Reduce pesticide inputs.
A nice thought to end these notes
Last night as I lay sleeping, I dreamt
O, marvellous error – 
That there was a beehive here inside my heart
And the golden bees were making white combs
And sweet honey from all my failures. 
Machado de Assis

Thought for the Week – Disconnected from Source 

No comments
The issue of self-esteem is not new. Freud attributed the difference between a low mood and depression to self-esteem. He argued that low self esteem triggers depression.
Today we are surrounded by self-esteem concerns. David Tacey claims that the issue has grown because we look to the ego to supply our sense of self worth when the source is elsewhere – in the soul. Since we don’t talk about the soul anymore we can’t  come to terms with self-esteem. He says, “our ego based society cannot understand it because something other than the ego gives us our deep and secure sense of worth”. And we are out of touch, disconnected from this source. He goes on to suggest that this why so many young people are harming themselves, engaging in glue sniffing or attempting suicide. The problem is that they don’t know who they are – they are cut off disconnected from source.
Jung describes this as a ‘loss of soul’ and this disconnection undermines people’s lives makings them anxious and confused. This loss leads to a crippling emptiness which is expressed as anxiety, addictions and even suicidal feelings. We may look fine on the surface but underneath there is turmoil. We need to reconnect with our souls.

Thought for the Week – Darkness v Light

No comments
As we enter this darkening time of the year I find myself drawn downwards into my own darkness. And I am frightened to go there.
Growing up we were taught to avoid the darkness, to fear it and treat it as dangerous territory. Most of my spiritual training has also taught me to ignore this darkness and focus on the more accessible bright half of my being.  And our culture avoids the dark – light is everywhere – we never get time off to rest in the dark. We are always on.
We have witnessed the destruction that ignored darkness has spawned and the consequent disillusionment with the church.
The truth is that we are hybrid creatures, made up of dark and light and we must take both these parts seriously and we all have our own version of these.
