This morning, meeting with Paul to create a list of Spagyrics for a February sale, I mentioned the theme I was thinking of was love. Love for Valentine’s day, of course, but also love generally, which is always needed, but especially now. Looking over, I saw him wagging his finger as if conducting music, and I realized that the classic Beatles’ song was playing in both our heads. And so, the All You Need is Love sale was born!

As a kid in the 70’s I remember my parents listening to the Beatles, and especially as a small child, I loved the innocent cheer of that tune. I also remember, with the clarity of a child’s conviction, that I was utterly convinced they were right.
As I grew up and worked my way through the Beatles’ catalogue, the psychedelic albums spoke to me more deeply through my adolescence and young adulthood. Even now, though, when I hear All You Need is Love, my inner three-year-old starts dancing, believing that if everyone just listened to the tune that made me so happy, they would realize the simple, perfect formula its lyrics contain.
That song came out in the midst of the often violent and ugly cultural upheaval of the 60’s, and the chaos of that time is what Paul finds himself revisiting in his memories lately. The rhetoric of division and fear, of insularity and resentment, of pitting disadvantaged groups against each other as if justice is a zero-sum game; all this is familiar to anyone who lived through the turbulence of that era.
Then, as now, the antidote to all of that hate is simple: love. Romantic love for your partner, protective love for family and children, compassionate love for those you agree with and those you don’t, empathetic love for all who suffer, and the inspiring love of our natural world and the beauty it contains.
Perhaps most important of all, we need love for ourselves and compassion for both our beauty and imperfections. Creating the world we want will require more than just love, but love is all we really need to get started on the project.
As always, for anything we want to undertake, Nature offers us a team of helpers willing to support us in our work: the green intelligence of the plants. It is those beings and their wisdom that we capture in our work and the Spagyrics that we create. Whatever kind of love you’re drawing on to strengthen yourself in this time, consider allowing these plants to support your process.

And remember, no matter how difficult the world and its troubles are, and no matter how hard it can be to hold a place of peace and love within the chaos, as the wise poets said:
There’s nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.
