The controversy behind sage and how to smudge properly and ethically

Today, I took my friend to a spiritual shop for the first time and we saw sage sitting on the counter, so I started to explain how to use it. The lady behind the till started laughing and she told me that the moment the shop re-opened after lockdown, people were running in for sage. I love sage because it’s something that is prominent in my Palestinian culture, but I’ve been reading a lot of conte

A beautiful, refreshing book that goes from one of the roots of attitudes against Arab women to how it affects Arab women’s literary work. I adore this book.

“بكوب الشراب المرصع باللازورد.... انتظرها
على بركة الماء حول المساء وعطر الكولونيا.... انتظرها
بصبر الحصان المعدّ لمنحدرات الجبال.... انتظرها
بذوق الأمير البديع الرفيع..... انتظرها
بسبع وسائد محشوة بالسحاب..... انتظرها
بنار البخور النسائي ملئ المكان.... انتظرها
برائحة الصندل الذكرية حول ظهور الخيول..... انتظرها
ولا تتعجل،فإن أقبلت بعد موعدها فانتظرها
وان أقبلت قبل موعدها فانتظرها
وان أقبلت عند موعدها فانتظرها
ولا تُجفِل الطير فوق جدائلها وانتظرها
لتجلس مرتاحة كالحديقة في أوج زينتها.... وانتظرها
لكي تتنفس هذا الهواء الغريب على قلبها.... وانتظرها
لترفع عن ساقها ثوبها غيمة غيمة.....و انتظرها
وخذها إلى شرفة لترى قمرا غارقا في الحليب وانتظرها
وقدم لها الماء قبل النبيذ ولا تتطلع إلى توأمي حجل نائمين على صدرها وانتظرها
ومُس على مهل يدها عندما تضع الكأس فوق الرخام كأنك تحمل عنها الندى وانتظرها
تحدث إليها كما يتحدث نايٌ إلى وترٍ خائف في الكمان كأنكما شاهدان على ما يُعِد غد لكما وانتظرها
إلى أن يقول لك الليل لم يبقى غيركما في الوجود، فخذها إلى موتك المشتهى وانتظرها”

Eckhart Tolle
“The ego’s needs are endless. It feels vulnerable and threatened and so lives in a state of fear and want. Once you know how the basic dysfunction operates, there is no need to explore all its countless manifestations, no need to make it into a complex personal problem.”
Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

“You must discipline your mind to avoid focusing on the how, why, and when.”
