🌴 The allure of dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures has always fascinated people of all ages from all over the world, but something that has always been too unappreciated are the plants that lived long ago. One of these plants was Tempskya, a genus of Pterydophites (tree ferns) which was very widespread, as it's fossils have been found in both the northern and southern hemisphere: from places like United States and Argentina to places like Europe, China and Australia. Tempskya was first described in 1845 from specimens found in what is now Czech Republic. Four species were erected in the original description, but today there are around twenty valid species. What looks like the trunk was in reality a vast number of stems that were surrounded by many roots. Tempskya is the only member of the family Tempskyaceae, and its classification among plants is debated. The most recent studies suggest it could be part of the order Cyatheales, which are a division of the class Polypodiopsida. This plant was able to grow up to 6 meters in height and have a diameter of 50 cm. During its growth, several small leaves started growing accross the false trunk. This is unusual considering that most tree ferns have large leaves which grow from the top of the trunk. This plant is thought to have lived near watery habitats, like wetlands and riverbanks. Tempskya lived in the Cretaceous period, and its fossil record ranges from the Valanginian stage, which started around 140 mya to the Santonian stage, which ended around 83 mya. This means that until new more recent fossils will prove otherwise, this plant went extinct before the end of the Cretaceous.

Avez-vous déjà écrit un poème d'auto-louange ?
Lors de l'un des derniers stages de danse vivancielle (la danse vivancielle nous invite à ne pas séparer le corps de l'esprit et à apprendre à laisser s'exprimer l'âme dans le mouvement), voici celui que j'ai écrit.
Le lire vous aura pour effet de vous reconnecter, vous aussi, à cette part de l'universel que vous portez en vous ✨
Je suis une âme
Sur le chemin de la réalisation
J'avance sans cesse verd le retour dans l'infini et l'éternel
Qui est, et qui a toujours été
Et qui invite chaque parcelle de conscience à se voir
Dans son infinie beauté
Aujourd'hui, je m'autorise l'équilibre
Entre l'intérieur et l'extérieur
Qui dans leur nature polarisée,
Sont en réalité unifiées.
Je fais mes choix à partir de l'Amour, et non de la peur
Et j'assume toute ma vulnérabilité
En m'accueillant totalement
Dans mon ombre comme dans ma Lumière.
J'accueille et j'embrasse tout ce qui est,
Tel que c'est
J'accueille mon enfant intérieur sauvage
L'être le plus important de ma vie
Qui m'ouvre la voie à la liberté
Et à la plénitude incarnée.
Merci @tailored.art 🙏🏻
"Conflict starts within through the unprocessed aspects of the past. It continues to manifest itself into this reality as part of the many unresolved aspects of individuals, of societies and previous generations. Conflict arises as it requests to be resolved. The only purpose of conflict itself is the ultimate realization and the resolution thereof. You have unitedly agreed as a consciousness to have this experience, individualized, as well as societies and civilizations represented on this Earth.
Many of these circumstances that you witness to be challenging are a natural byproduct of your journey of evolution and learning, yet how these conflicts and how these challenges play out, how long they execute, remains entirely on you, your ability as an individual, as a group of individuals, as a community, as a society, to transmute, to witness the conflict’s core, the key aspects of the conflict that are within you, to learn and to realize from these key aspects within you, and for enough individuals to complete these realizations within themselves."
