And in the knowledge of justice, the love of it,
And in that love, the love of all existences,
And in the love of all existences, the love of Goddess and all goodness.”
- Iolo Morganwg, Gorsedd Prayer

Spirit Library: Explore your Inner World
Our reality no longer exists in the same way that it has. All of life is changing and we are being called to find our stability from within. As a result, we are being urged to strengthen our connection with our inner self, to deepen our relationship with our soul and to release the subliminal patterns and programs which continue to create disharmony and imbalance within.

ThoughtCo: Egyptian Creation Myths
The Main Cosmogonies of Ancient Egypt
Egyptian cosmogonies were more about explaining the order of the world (personified as Ma’at), especially the rising of the sun and the flooding of the Nile, than the creation of mankind. The world would continue its orderly progression regardless of whether or not we mere mortals lived or died, although the kings and queens, as incarnations of the gods, counted, and religious rites symbolically helped maintain the order.

MBG: An RD-Approved Pumpkin Bread Recipe That’s Secretly Nutritious
There’s a reason people are drawn to the warm flavor and aroma of pumpkin when fall arrives. One classic favorite: pumpkin bread. Unfortunately, since most are high in added sugars, the seasonal loaves are generally reserved for the occasional treat. But we’re just not willing to accept that.

Elephant Journal: Renewing My Vows with Nature.
Dappled light gives way under the canopy that embraces me. One foot gently stepping between shadows and bird songs.
Nature comes out to play in silences.
I try to ensure my steps are gracious and kind. I’m not keen to crush dried leaves and hear them crinkle or break twigs along the way.

EarthSky News: Moon In Gemini Before Dawn September 29 And 30
On the mornings of September 29 and 30, 2021, you can see the moon near the two brightest stars of the constellation Gemini the Twins. These stars are Castor and Pollux. The moon will reach its last quarter phase in front of Gemini on September 29 at 01:57 UTC. By clocks in North America, that translates to the evening of September 28. A last quarter moon is a waning moon. So the September 28-29 moon will look half-illuminated, like half a pie. And the next night’s moon will look slimmer, like a fat crescent.
Patheos-Pagan: What It Means When Your Prayers Aren’t Answered
What does it mean when your prayers aren’t answered?

FORGIVENESS BRINGS JOY
“The greatest evil that can befall man is that he should come to think ill of himself.”
— Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Do you feel worthy of having joy? Do you feel you deserve it?
The first step to activating our inner joy is to eliminate the blocks to it. We can start by truly forgiving ourselves and all others. Forgiveness calls for a shift in our perception. It is easier to forgive ourselves and others when we really understandthat each of us has always done the very best we knew to do at that time.
“If we don’t forgive ourselves for our mistakes, and others for the wounds they have inflicted upon us, we end up crippled with guilt. And the soul cannot grow under a blanket of guilt, because guilt is isolating, whilegrowth is a gradual process of reconnection to ourselves, to other people, and to a larger whole.”
— Joan Borysenko
A Note from the Universe
By all means, seek to change the things you don’t like and to attract the things you do, just don’t put off your happiness for either or the other.

“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, til it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”
-Harriet Beecher Stowe
We have more strength, and more ability to persevere, than we give ourselves credit for. We are creative, and can come up with solutions. It takes courage to hang on. It takes faith to stick with it. But that is what we’re made of. That is who we are.

Daily Tarot: Temperance
A little emotional distance is called for to keep things peaceful and working smoothly. You may be very sentimental or attached to certain issues or other people’s opinions of you but don’t let this rule how the day goes. Don’t let anyone casually or ignorantly hurt your feelings. They may not even know what they’re doing. Stay functional and keep your emotional guards up.
