Elephant Journal: 22 Reminders of How to Be a More Grateful Person.
I attempt to teach (by example in my daily life, and through my writing) kids and grown ups how to be more mindful. I am a school teacher (bilingual 3rd grade) and a yoga teacher.

That’s because this isn’t really a grove of 40,000 individual aspen trees, but rather 40,000 clones of one organism — a single root system spread across 43 hectares in Utah. It’s the most massive living thing known to science.

Patheos-Pagan: Honoring Hekate, Queen Of Ghosts And The Restless Dead, At Samhain
Aside from Persephone, Hekate is an excellent goddess to honor during Samhain. As a goddess of the crossroads, liminal spaces, ghosts and the dead–especially and particularly the restless dead–and of course of witchcraft, she comes to mind naturally around this time of year.
MY WILL OR DIVINE WILL?
“It is important not to ‘need’ what you are calling to you but rather to have a certain detachment about it. Let it be all right if it doesn’t come, or if it comes in a different form than what you expect. After you haveasked for something, surrender to whatever comes as being appropriate.”
— Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer
“Acceptance says, True, this is my situation at the moment. I’ll look unblinkingly at the reality of it. But I’ll also open my hands to accept willingly whatever a loving Father sends me.”
— Catherine Marshall
“This business of hozho. The way I understand it … I’ll use an example. Terrible drought, crops dead, sheep dying. Spring dried out. No water. The Hopi, or the Christian, maybe the Moslem, they pray for rain. The Navajohas the proper ceremony done to restore himself to harmony with the drought. You see what I mean. The system is designed to recognize what’s beyond human power to change, and then to change the human’s attitude to be content with the inevitable.”
— in ‘Sacred Clowns’ by Tony Hillerman
A Note from the Universe
Of course, these are crazy times to be alive, when virtually anything could happen next, fortunes are made and lost overnight, friends come and go, and lovers glimpse eternity between fear and ecstasy.
That’s why zillions upon zillions of souls, more than you will ever know, said, “No wa-y-y-y, José.”
And it’s why a few brazen billion, said, “Whoooo-Hooooooooooooooo!”
You so brazen,

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
-Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)
We need to ask ourselves: Are we living the life that we want to live? If not, then make some changes! Life is too short, life is too precious, to miss out on. Every moment is holy. It is there for us to embrace. How many moments go by without notice? Are we spending our time analyzing the past, which is done and gone – or planning for the future, which is changing every instant? Or are we living, truly LIVING in this moment, NOW, where our life is taking place? It is not enough to exist, choose to live!
