September strews the woodlot o’er
With many a brilliant color;
The world is brighter than before,
Why should our hearts be duller?
–Thomas W. Parsons (1819–92)
Spiritual Unite: Orbs Color Meaning: What Do The Different Colors Mean?
Orbs Color Meaning: Have you ever seen someone share a picture, where something orb like appeared in the photograph? Well orbs are very debated phenomena in the spiritual groups.

MBG: How To Help Your Child Tap Into Their Inner Self
The ego is that part of us that subscribes to the conditionings of culture and all that we believe we “should” do in order to feel worthy and complete. We are raised by a set of prescriptions that dictate how we should be in life: College, career, marriage, and parenting are some of the few prescriptions set forth for us by the culture around us.
Elephant Journal: The Difference between Setting an Intention & Magic Thinking.
I have to admit—like many people—I was under the misguided impression that “the law of attraction” was a viable belief.
At one point in my life, I watched the movie version of “The Secret” every night before I went to bed.
MNN: Helping pets in Hurricane Florence’s path
When people are in the path of a massive storm, they prepare their homes as best they can and get out of its way. For pets and strays, the situation is more complicated.
As Hurricane Florence bears down on the Carolina coast, many in the animal community are already helping get these animals out of harm’s way. Shelters and rescue groups hundreds of miles away are taking in animals from shelters that are directly in the storm’s path.
EarthSky News: Next few evenings … Moon, Venus, Jupiter

Patheos-Pagan: Jewelry as Protection
I was leaving for a rally the other day. Which one it was, doesn’t really matter. Won’t be my first, nor will it be my last in these turbulent times. As I was getting ready to leave, I went to my “accessory tray” (a family joke with my sons, as I am obsessive about everyone having one of these. Where you drop your jewelry, change, keys, etc.) I absent-mindedly began armoring up.
DO YOU OWN YOUR LIFE?
“The meaning of life is to give life meaning.”
— Ken Hudgins
When we own our lives, we accept what we’ve inherited and the experiences we hold in our memories. We also claim our right to create new conditions if we’re not happy with what’s come before. We assume responsibility for changing what does not suit us. We acknowledge our own special talents and skills, and truly comprehend our right to enjoy the journey. In short, we embrace the meaning and purpose, the mystery and the beauty of our lives.
Do you feel that you own your life at the moment?
“I think of life itself now as a wonderful play that I’ve written for myself… and so my purpose is to have the utmost fun playing my part.”
— Shirley MacLaine
“Life is too short to be little.”
— Benjamin Disraeli
“Every man dies, but not every man lives….”
— Garth Brooks
A Note from the Universe
Has it occurred to you that just as much as you now want a thriving business and a steady income, and to have financial security for myself and family, once these are done, you’ll just as earnestly, passionately, and “badly” want to do, be, and have even more?
Of course it has.
So with this line of thinking, you also realize that you will never, ever have all you want, right? Oh, that’s not so bad, it means as you constantly achieve, so will you simultaneously invent new dreams, just as you always have.
So the trick then, to being happy, is learning to experience it even though you don’t yet have all you want.

“Eden is that old-fashioned House
We dwell in every day
Without suspecting our abode
Until we drive away.”
It’s kind of like that song that goes: “You don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone…” Know what you’ve got – you’ve got SO much!!! We have everything, all of nature, all of creation, all of the infinite possibilities for our lives. And we’ve got it right here, and right now – open up your awareness to it, accept it, embrace it!
