“A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves
with each step I made. The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed,
are as crisp as autumn air.”
- Eric Sloane

Patheos-Pagan: Some are Called, Some are Claimed, and Some Delude Themselves

Pagan Playlist: Kalevala – Nagryanuli ( Нагрянули
“Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are — chaff and grain together — certain thata faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away….”
— Dinah Craik
We cherish our best friends and our special communities because we feel safe to be vulnerable when we’re in their embrace. And yet I have discovered that as long as I identify with my self-image, with my ego, there’s no safety possible anywhere. When theego is on watch, even a dear friend’s truth may trigger reactions like anxiety, self-criticism and fear.
The only true safety exists in living the truth of our soul, our essence.
“Open your body and your mind to the subtler levels of experience, letting go of your attempt to control, to be right, not worrying about appearances, not trying to be safe.”
— Stephen Levine

November 8, 2021
“Because you’re not what I would have you to be, I blind myself to who, in truth, you are.”
When I was 16 I took my first “self-help” class, and I still remember the lessons I learned there. One of the big ones was: “Unfulfilled expectations cause upset.” Expectations give us some pre-set notion of what we think “should” be. When we come in to a situation without expectations, we’re much more open and willing to accept, and even enjoy, what is taking place.

Daily Tarot: The Moon
You may be dwelling on your weakness or discomfort, and those things may be real enough, but take heart and know that these things are also temporary and are not going to last much longer. You underestimate or overlook your great powers of recovery and self-healing. You have too much love of life to be kept down for long. Give yourself a break and relax a bit
