Zen Teachings – Feat. Shunryu Suzuki

“Calmness of mind does not mean you should stop your activity. Real calmness should be found in activity itself…It is easy to have calmness in inactivity, it is hard to have calmness in activity, but calmness in activity is true calmness.”

― Shunryu Suzuki, Zen Mind Beginner’s Mind

The Crystals Of Aries

The crystals and stones that are believed to enhance the courage, enthusiasm, and independence of the Aries zodiac (“The Ram”) are Bloodstone, Citrine, and Diamond.

Bloodstone’s green and red appearance is distinct and striking, mimicking the dynamic Aries archetype and providing the courage to adjust to unaccustomed circumstances. 

As one of the most vibrant varieties of quartz, the Citrine crystal attracts prosperity and success by imparting us with joy, delight, and unparalleled enthusiasm. 

Diamond is a natural energy amplifier, effortlessly bestowing the fearlessness needed to rid ourselves of needy tendencies and unleash our true value and pure independence. 

Whether you want to buy the three crystals representing Aries for mystical purposes, or you just think they would look cool lying around your house (the reason I buy them), you can find them here
