“The sweet calm sunshine of October, now
Warms the low spot; upon its grassy mold
The pur0ple oak-leaf falls; the birchen bough
drops its bright spoil like arrow-heads of gold.”
– William Cullen Bryant

Elephant Journal: Kitchen as a Sacred Space, Cooking as Meditation.
They say that food cooked by one’s mother is incomparable to any other.
For me, this is especially true. My mother channels “Annapūrṇa”—the Indian Goddess of food and nourishment (the name literally means “filled with or possessed of food”) in the kitchen effortlessly. Her mother—my grandmother—was a level higher; she was the Goddess Annapūrṇa herself, I believe.

GETTING DOWN TO ESSENTIALS
“Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.”
— Lin Yutang
Do you feel a desire to simplify your life?
If you say ‘yes,’ then set an intention to reduce the demands, stimuli, interruptions and busyness in your life. We each have the power to do this – we simply have to begin to say ‘no’ to those activities that don’t directly serve what we want for our lives.
Everyone of this planet deserves to have some free time to think, relax and have fun. If you long for this, begin now to clear your plate and allow a new level of experience to happen in your life. Take charge. Eliminate time wasters. Make some decisionsabout what matters to you.
“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.”
— Hans Hofmann

“Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure, nor this thing nor that, but simply growth.”
-William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)
Contentment looks different to everyone. We may not be able to define it, or recognize it when we see it, but we can certainly feel it. Happiness and contentment spring from within
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.
