From the charm of radiant faces,
From the days we took to dream,
From the joy of open spaces,
From the mountain and the stream,
Bronzed of sunlight, nerves a-tingle,
Speed we back again to mingle
In the battle for our bread.

-Leslie Pinckney Hill (1880-1960)

Spirit Library: Enthusiasm & Joy (a message from Kate Spreckley)

In this modern world, it is easy to forget our connection to and dependence on our soul. As a result, we lose track of who we are and why we are here. We become fractured and fragmented. It is for this reason that we must reconnect with and develop a deeper, more conscious connection with our soul.

Daily Good: Dial Up the Magic of This Moment

It seems to me that almost all our sadnesses are moments of tension, which we feel as paralysis because we no longer hear our astonished emotions living.

Rainer Maria Rilke

Dial Up the Magic of This Moment

“Few people have stood at the gates of hope through world wars and environmental crises and personal loss with more dignity, wisdom, and optimism than Joanna Macy during her six decades as a Buddhist scholar, environmental activist, and pioneering philosopher of ecology. Macy is also the world’s greatest translator-enchantress of Rainer Maria Rilke, in whose poetry she found refuge upon the sudden and devastating death of the love of her life after fifty-six years of marriage.” More in this beautiful piece from Brain Pickings. { read more }

Be The Change

Wise Woman Herbal Ezine: Meeting Plants with Loving Attention
by Anne-Marie Fryer Wiboltt

The nettle season is soon over, however there is still time to dry the tops for nettle infusion or make a little side dish of cooked nettles seasoned with butter and salt. But before we do that let us take a moment to be with a growing nettle plant under the shady trees at the edge of the forest. When we sit down quietly and notice the nettle plant we may discover, although it is not the ordinary way of observing the natural world, that we are in fact looking at creative cosmic forces at work.

Treehugger: Why Do Birds Migrate at Night?

Patheos-Pagan: The Varieties of Wicca

The tradition that we today refer to as “Wicca” first went public in England during the early 1950’s. Originally an initiation-only tradition, by the 1970’s dozens of Wiccan traditions had popped up in Europe and North America. Today there are Wiccans on at least six of the seven continents, and despite “Wicca bashing” being rather fashionable over the last ten years, Wicca is still the largest Magickal Pagan Tradition under the umbrella.

“I never know what I think about something until I read what I’ve written on it.”
— William Faulkner

What have you been thinking lately?

Do you know? We get so accustomed to our thoughts that we lose awareness of them. We don’t see how they are stuck in old habitual patterns, most of which don’t serve us.

Take time to journal so you can capture your thoughts on paper. By doing so, you will begin to take control of your mind and use it to best advantage.

“When you choose to understand [and] exercise control over the functions and attributes of your own mind, you will be empowered to create your own reality, to be completely self-reliant and totally prosperous.”
— The Delfin Knowledge System

Daily Wisdom
September 3, 2020

“The secret of all those who make discoveries is that they regard nothing as impossible.”

-Justus Leibig (1803-1973)

When we are open to infinite possibilities we know that there is a solution to every problem, an answer to every question. It might take investigation, and experimentation, determination and a lot of faith – but with this mind-set, a discovery will be made

-Lissa Coffey
