Daily Good: Spirit Bathing for the Worried and Beleaguered

“As expressed in a thousand ways in the Brussats book “Spiritual Literacy: Reading the Sacred in Everyday Life”, the Spirit resides not only in formal religious rituals and spiritual practices, but in everyday life — nature, a cats eyes, a beautiful painting, a colorful salad, a lover’s embrace, a new place. This means that I can Spirit Bathe anywhere, anytime. I can be in my kitchen or kneeling over a flowerbed. I can be at a rock concert for that matter or on top of a grassy hill gazing down at a meadow filled with wildflowers in a riot of colors.”{ read more }

Patheos-Pagan:  An Authentic Foundation For Modern Paganism

Lately I’m seeing a lot of people complaining that Paganism is inauthentic. These complaints aren’t coming from fundamentalist Christians or atheists. Rather, they’re coming from Pagans. Or from former Pagans or from people who can best be described as “Pagan adjacent.”

Inner Journey:

SECURITY

“Let us never confuse stability with stagnation.”
— Mary Jean LeTendre

“Many people think that by hoarding money they are gaining safety for themselves. If money is your ONLY hope for independence, you will never have it. The only real security that a person can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability. Without these qualities, money is practically useless.”
— Henry Ford

“One has to abandon altogether the search for security, and reach out to the risk of living with both arms. One has to court doubt and darkness as the cost of knowing.”
— Morris L. West

“One thing we can do is make the choice to view the world in a healthy way. We can choose to see the world as safe with only moments of danger rather than seeing the world as dangerous with only moments of safety.”
— Deepak Chopra

“The only peace, the only security, is in fulfillment.”
— Henry Miller

Belief

“All things are possible to him who believes.”

-Jesus, Mark 9:23

It’s as simple and as beautiful as this statement. All things are possible to him who believes. Believes what? To him who believes that all things are possible! Believe that all things are possible and they are! Believe that things are impossible and they are! We can choose what we believe. I believe in infinite possibilities!

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Pope

Today can be easy if you don’t try to swim upstream. Do what’s expected of you (and what you need to do, anyway) and don’t rebel, at least not outwardly. You’re given plenty of authority to convince people to help you if necessary, and there should be few if any arguments. Be calm, respect authority, and you’ll automatically be given the respect you deserve, plus more. Get a lot done!
