Pagan Playlist: BLOOD MOON” • Dark Blues Guitar



“I am a child of God. I came from the womb of creation.”
— Tao Te Ching

Our grand business in life is not to see what lies dimly at a distance, but to do what lies clearly at hand.”
— Thomas Carlyle

We each play a role in the bigger game of life. In this bigger picture, life plays with energy and matter to expand, create, express and evolve. It explores new possibilities, realizes them and then reaches for even more. Life continually transforms what is into something brand new.

We choose how actively we take part in this cosmic dance. We can become mere spectators to life if we get stuck in old ideas that have lost their energy for us.

How much passion do you feel for your goals? Are you still being creative in how you work with them?

“Embrace fully your capacity to create, to think in unlimited ways, and to pursue everything that you have been wanting. Be flexible, open and willing to let the new come to you. “This can be the most joyous, prosperous, and creative time of your life.”
— Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

You are still visualizing, right?

Daily Wisdom
April 22, 2021

“Letter-writing on the part of a busy man or woman is the quintessence of generosity.”

-Agnes Repplier, 1926

Old-fashioned letter writing is almost a lost art. But think of the beauty of actually putting pen to paper and composing thoughts! How personal, how rare. This is entirely different that jotting off a quick e-mail, and cc’ing everyone on your list. This is different from buying a card printed with “Hallmark” sentiments. We’re all busy, but when we take the time to write a letter, it is a wonderful gift that we are giving.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man

Possibly a romantically disquieting day, you may begin to suspect that your love is not being returned, at least not in kind. Or perhaps you can’t bring yourself to return the affections of an ardent admirer. This might feel even worse. The head and heart don’t always speak the same language or have the same opinions. Be strong and as kind as you can
