Turn (v.): late Old English turnian “to rotate, revolve,” in part also from Old French torner “to turn away or around; draw aside, cause to turn; change, transform; turn on a lathe” (Modern French tourner), both from Latin tornare “to polish, round off, fashion, turn on a lathe,” from tornus “lathe,” from Greek tornos “lathe, tool for drawing circles,” from Proto-Indo-European root tere- to rub, turn.”  Transitive sense in English is from c. 1300.

Our lives, as we know it, can spiral around and turn on its heads when we reach plateaus of our potentials, which can happen for us individually or collectively.   This can be harrowing experiences sometimes, because intuitively we know we are entering the changing cycles of birth, death, and rebirth.

Oftentimes, when we feel fearful of the unknown and stagnate in our stubbornness not want to change, Life may give us a swift kick from our complacent nests out to a new level of existence, but most importantly a new level of consciousness.

What gives us strength to journey through are our loving relationships.  That love will always carry, support, and protect us, and gives us the capabilities to further tap in and cultivate greater love at deeper levels.

It’s All about The Love, sojourners.  It’s also about our curiosity to discover The Beauty and more Universal mysteries.

Faithfully Yours, Tonya
