Cat’s Morning Bits for February 28, 2018
Good Morning, grab a cup of your favorite morning brew and start things off with “Today’s Inspirations”. I hope you find something here that will make you feel good or help you on your path today.
Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.
Robert Frost (1874-1963)

A Bountiful Moment:
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Create a life filled with memories that amaze yourself. You have the ability to create days filled with awesome wonder of “How did I do that?”. Itï¿½s just a matter of dreaming bigger than you are right now and knowing that you can do anything you set your mind to.
Dream big today. Donï¿½t let the thoughts of ï¿½if onlyï¿½ get in the way of what you think you are capable of achieving. Set your sights on the big picture to keep you moving in the direction that creates memories showing you the reality of how great you are.
Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: How I Found Paganism; From a Kitchen Witch
The question posed was how did you find paganism?
Well I guess to be honest it found meï¿½and it was witchcraft in particular.
Being born on Samhain, yep honestly my date of birth is 31st October, I grew up with a little bit of a witchy vibe.
Family and friends would actually buy me little witch things for my birthday as a bit of a Halloween joke. Although as I grew up Halloween in the UK wasn’t what it is now, there was no trick or treating or even decorating and pumpkins where I lived
REMOVE THE FILTERS
“You got to look at things with the eye in your heart, not with the eye in your head.”
— Lame Deer, Medicine Man of the Oglala people
Whenever we’re thinking, our experience is being filtered through our minds. For example, when I say to myself, “What a beautiful sunset!” I am not fully experiencing the sunset because I am involved with the words in my mind.
Explore letting go of the thoughts, the words, and connecting directly with your experiences. Tune in to the silence and the sensations in your body. Be aware of the spaciousness this brings because this is truly living in the present moment.
Being present doesn’t mean that we have to abandon thinking entirely. That’s not feasible, of course. But we can experiment with what it’s like to stop thinking once in a while!
“Only in quiet waters things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.”
— Hans Margolius
A Note from the Universe
Tell me what advice would you give a child who came to you asking what their favorite color should be?
To follow their heart? That no color is right or wrong? That if they wanted to, they could always change their mind later, any number of times? That their happiness with their choice is all that matters? Not to give it too much importance? That they don’t have to decide at all? That you approve no matter what they choose?
Now, what if they protested because they had heard from friends that there was a special color assigned to them at birth; their soul-color. They felt that a numerology reading might shed some light on their confusion. They wanted confirmation of their choices through a zodiac chart, tea leaves, and a Ouija board. And they asked if hiring a coach, therapist, or guru would be a good idea.
Yep, this is what I hear every day, just not so much for colors…
Sorry to lay this on you. I’m just fishing around for some new answers to the bazillion questions I get each week about careers, loves, and destinies – which to me, from here, are kind of like… crayons.
Ewhhhh, nice magenta!

“I not only use all the brains I have, but all I can borrow.” -Woodrow Wilson
We don’t need to know everything. Isn’t that great? What a burden it would be to carry around all that information constantly. And yet everything we could ever need, or want, to know is available to us at any time. All we have to do is ask! We are here to help each other, we are our own greatest resource.
