The Innocent Mind
Not to be confused with gullibility, innocence fosters wonder and bemusement. We rarely encounter an innocent mind beyond childhood. Puberty pretty much destroys the rainbow of delight in all things. The innocent expects to experience goodness and may rarely be disappointed. Fascinated with how things fall into place and not bothering to figure out the hows and whys, this type of person appreciates the little things in life as they happen and looks with wonder and joy at all that enters their lives.

The Summer Solstice marks the first day of the season of Summer in the northern hemisphere.
This ritual is used to complete external physical manifestation and all energies are about exerting the will. In ancient times it was considered a time of fullness of life, worldly blessings and celebration. Not much has changed today in how we look at summer. We see it as a time of vacations, play, celebration, fun, joviality, parties, and barbecues with family and friends at the beach or park. Days are longer which gives us more time to enjoy the sun and soak in it's warmth.
The Summer Solstice celebrates the joy, warmth and laughter of summer; and God's power. The beginning of summer represents a time for purification, renewal of the self, a time to release the sadness, fears and pains from your life. A time for purification and renewed energy.
