The mellow moon, the changing leaves,
The earlier setting Sun,
Proclaim at last, my merry boys,
The harvest-time begun.

Spiritual Unite: Orb In Photos And Their Meaning

One of the most common experiences we have with the spirit world shows up in places that we might not expect  photography. Specifically, the little (or large!) balls of energy that show up in photos, that are commonly called orbs. The spiritual energy that runs through our world may be as old as time, but strangely enough, it is…


MBG:How To Have Epic Outdoor Adventures (Even When You Work A Desk Job)

What do you think of when you imagine an outdoor adventure? Maybe you’re envisioning thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, summiting Denali, or traveling the country in a converted van—something big, bold, and ambitious.


Daily Good: Betty Peck’s Magic Mirror

Imagine a magic mirror that you look into to discover how truly wonderful you are. That is the kind of mirror that Betty Peck, a kindergarten teacher with more than 50 years experience, had in all of her classrooms. Whenever one of her students felt worried or unsure, Betty would gently guide the student to look into the magic mirror and say, “How could you forget how wonderful you are?!” In this short film created by a former student of Betty’s, this wise woman, now well into her 90’s, encourages us to have just such a magic mirror in every kindergarten, every household and every garden. In that way we can all say, “Thank you for every magic moment that makes it possible for me to stand here and to feel how truly wonderful I am.” { read more }

Be The Change

Give thanks today for all the magic moments in your own life. If you’d like, you can send a note of gratitude to Betty Peck for the countless seeds of goodness she planted in so many hearts


Elephant Journal: Equinox, September 23rd—We are Two Halves of the Same Heart.

Come September 23rd, our closest and most precious star will align with the centre of the earth.
At precisely 3.54 a.m., Central European Time, the sun will shine directly over the equator, and the equal length of night and day will be the same—everywhere in the world.


MNN: People like you more than you might think
(No, seriously, they do … we have research to prove it.)

For many people, the moments after a conversation — and sometimes even during the conversation — can be filled with self-doubt. There’s a lot of second guessing, like what did the person on the other side of the conversation think? And double the speculation if you’re meeting for the first time.


EarthSky News: See Venus at its brightest

On and around September 20 and 21, 2018, look for the brightest planet, Venus, now looming low in the evening twilight, dazzlingly bright. It’s now Venus’ time of greatest brilliancy, a time when the planet takes on an odd appearance; many will report it as a UFO in the days ahead. It’s a precursor to Venus’ disappearance from our evening skies in the coming weeks.

Patheos-Pagan: Mind Over Spirit: Be. QUIET. 
We’ve heard the whole thing about ‘mind over body’. I can say from experience that this is a legitimate thing—the strength of the mind, the logic and rationality and sheer strength of it, kept elements of my body in check until I was alone and free to fall apart.


Inner Journey: 


“No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself, and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be true.”
— Nathaniel Hawthorne

“You cannot fake a relationship and feel right with yourself or anyone else. Changing yourself to fit what you think other people want doesn’t work. Pretending to be someone other than yourself only broadens the distancebetween the person you are and the one with whom you’re trying to establish closeness.”
— Mary Manin Morrissey

“Just as surely as distress must follow self-deceit, healing must follow self-honesty.”
— Vernon Howard

“Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got.”
— Janis Joplin

“We’re all of us sentenced to solitary confinement inside our own skins, for life!”

-Tennessee Williams, Orpheus Descending

There comes a time when we realize that there’s no escaping it, we have to live with ourselves! How do we treat ourselves? Are we kind and loving, do we show appreciation and forgiveness? Too often we’re our own worst critics! We’re hard on ourselves when we really need a break once in awhile. Let’s work on being the kind of person whom we want to be with – and spend some time being ourselves, by ourselves.

-Lissa Coffey


Beliefnet: 6 Uses for Honey

The Egyptians used honey as an antiseptic, a way of preventing body decay, and also to aid upset stomachs. During World War I soldiers were treated with a mixture of honey and cod-liver oil on open sores. Today, honey is just as remarkable for cuts, scrapes and to keep a youthful appearance
