spadeandseeds 28. OPEN YOUR OWN TREASURE HOUSE: This beautiful Catalina Silverlace leaf from the Madrona Marsh on a patch of frosty Dudleya...and now a little zen. :)
Daiju visited the master Baso in China. Baso asked " What do you seek?"
"Enlightenment," replied Daiju. "You have your own treasure house. Why do you search outside?" Baso asked. Daiju inquired: "Where is my treasure house?" Baso answered: "What you are asking is your treasure house." Daiju was enlightened! Even after, he urged his friends: "Open your own treasure house and use those treasures." Good one from Zen Flesh, Zen Bones. :)

spadeandseeds TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE AND AYURVEDIC HERBS: Super happy to add this herbal duo to my market selection. Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri) -Ayurvedic herb for the mind, memory and...I forgot what else. ;) The TCM herb Bo-He or Chinese mint (Mentha haplocalyx) is traditionally used for dispelling stagnant Qi, a very common human condition. Bo-He tastes very comparable to spearmint and makes a great substitute. Both super easy to grow! Grow your own food and medicine! :) @altadenafm @atwatervillagefm #losangeles 1mon

spadeandseeds I JUST FELL IN LOVE...with this beautiful #Monarch Butterfly visiting my Mexican Flame Vine, Senecio confusus. What is it about #butterflies that is so utterly transcendent that we hold our breath and our hearts skip a beat? Add some hummingbirds and bees and it's like an opera right outside your back door. :) #cantgetenough 1mon

spadeandseeds GHEE LAMP: The light symbolizes knowledge, illuminating and “en-lighten-ing” us. The light emanating from the #ghee lamp removes darkness, ignorance and evil. The light or knowledge shows us the way out of our problems, fears, tensions, and unhappiness. The light of a #ghee lamp is believed to bring in prosperity, as knowledge or wisdom is the greatest form of wealth. The wick is a symbol of energy and light where alight emits brightness. Happy #Diwali ! :) 2mon
