Patheos-Pagan: The Corner Crone: The Infinite Possibility of Twilight

I’ve been thinking about thresholds a lot, those that we recognize we’re crossing and—more so—the infinitesimally small thresholds we cross all of the time without ever really realizing we’re transitioning until after we’ve gone through them and find ourselves wondering, “What happened there? How did I change into this?”

Inner Journey: THE 4 D’S OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH

“Promise Yourself … to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. …To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.”
— Drawn from the Optimist Creed of the Optimist International Club

Reflect on this pathway for meaningful growth:

DISCIPLINE – To create change in our lives, we need to consistently focus on what we want.

DETACHMENT – Practice the art of detached observation. Let go of automatic defenses and patterns.

DISCERNMENT – Seek to discern the lower from the higher. What is self-serving and what is soul-inspired? Discernment carries no judgment. There are no goods and bads. Remain as a detached witness.

DHARMA “This is an East Indian word meaning “living your unique purpose.” How do you find meaning and fulfillment in ways that are natural to you? How do you best serve and contribute to the world?

“If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears.”
— Glenn Clark

And you can. Oh, you so can.

Daily Wisdom

Power
“The power of a man increases steadily by continuance in one direction.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)


We do get a certain momentum going when we work towards something for awhile. We build up steam. We want it more so we pursue it more. And we become more driven, more powerful in our efforts. This focused attention gives us more energy.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: The Tower

The biggest danger you face today is being aloof and thus fail to see an approaching problem. This can cost you the chance to intercept the difficulty and minimize it, if not avoid it all together. Pay attention without getting paranoid, and take nothing and no one for granted. Danger may not lurk within every single shadow, but a small misstep can sometimes cause problems that are way out of proportion to the cause.
