Spirit Library: Increasing Intensity (a message from Kate Spreckley)
Collectively we are all in the throes of a period of destruction and reconstruction. It is an intense time of rapid processing, purification, and healing where expansion, growth, learning, and awakenings are becoming more and more pronounced. We are learning to fully engage with our soul and to live life through our intuitive self. As a result, all that must be relinquished is being revealed offering us the opportunity to heal and release the deep and difficult wounds of the past

Altar Tools: Censer
This is an incense burner. Some are complex, like the swinging ones the Catholics use. This requires a lot of room! I would go with the ones that hold sticks or cones, seashells can also be used. The smoke can be used as a divining tool, for purifying or for altering consciousness.

Spirituality & Health: Tara: The Liberating Power of the Female Buddha
BY KATE MADDEN YEE

EarthSky News: Cassiopeia The Queen Ascends In September
Any late summer evening, and throughout northern autumn, Cassiopeia the Queen can be found ascending in the northeast after nightfall. The shape of this constellation makes Cassiopeia’s stars very noticeable. Cassiopeia looks like the letter W (or M). Look for the Queen starting at nightfall every September. She’ll be higher up in the northeast as autumn unfolds. For those in the northern U.S. and Canada, Cassiopeia is circumpolar, above the horizon all night long.

Inner Journey: MAKING A DIFFERENCE
“The spiritual life is a call to action. But it is a call to … action without any selfish attachment to the results.”
— Eknath Easwaran
Many of us feel deeply that we want to make a difference — we want our lives to mean something in the bigger scheme of life. While this is a noble motive, we might want to explore what lies at its root.
Does the drive to make a difference arise from ego’s need to feel worthy? If my ego is not convinced that I matter, I may want visible proof that I do by making some kind of impact on life.
Soul doesn’t need proof that it’s worthy. Soul thrives in being awake and connected. Perhaps if we let go of the pressure we feel from our ego’s need to be recognized, we will be more open and able to simply live soulfully. And by doing that, we WILL make a difference!
“A person’s worth is contingent upon who he is, not upon what he does, or how much he has. The worth of a person, or a thing, or an idea, is in being, not in doing, not in having.”
— Alice Mary Hilton

Hey, what if instead of waiting for everything to be perfect, we start living your dreams this week, to any degree we can?
Today’s Recipe: Instant Pot® Pumpkin Quinoa Porridge
If you haven’t tried quinoa for breakfast yet, you’re missing out on a tasty and comforting way to start your day. Quinoa will give you a hefty serving of protein, and the warm and spicy pumpkin in this recipe will give you lots of added vitamins and fiber. This is prepared in the Instant Pot®, which makes it quick and easy too! I made mine without too much sweetener and lots of spice; adjust the amounts to your taste. Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator up to 6 days.

“In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us.”
Reliability means the ability to be relied upon. When we’re talking about appliances, that’s easy to understand. Flip the switch and if it does what it’s supposed to do, it’s reliable. With people it’s not that different. To be reliable means that we do what we say we’re going to do. Our words carry weight because we have proven through our past actions and behaviors that people can count on us.
