January Quotes

“The birds are gone, The ground is white,
The winds are wild, They chill and bite;
The ground is thick with slush and sleet,
And I barely feel my feet.”

Pagan Library: Brigit’s Blue Ass Of Inspiration Ritual For Imbolg /Cory Cochran

The month of February, truly a month of ice in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere, is a dormant time, when all life and activity appears to be…yawn…low-key and rather boring. The following ritual is dedicated to the goddess Brigit, who tends the fire in the hearth, and in this case the hearth where inspiration burns. If you’ve felt uninspired during the “dark times” of Winter,



Daily Good: Prayer for the Earth: An Indigenous Response to these Times

In his lifetime Stan Rushworth, an elder of Cherokee descent who was raised by his grandfather, has seen a river die, animals disappear, and the proliferation of box stores. The devastation of climate change is not new to him – his elders have been telling him about it all of his life. The traditional indigenous wisdom that is needed now is looking at how indigenous populations have managed to survive a 95% population reduction through destruction and genocide. He calls on us all to come back to right relationship, to be sorrowful for what is happening, because without this we have lost our humanity. And yet we cannot stop with the sorrow and tears because “there’s too much work to be done” and we must figure out together how to do that work. { read more }

Patheos-Pagan: A clear concise intention is vital for spells and life

This month the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Montclair, New Jersey’s focus is on the meaning of intention. This is part of the January Soul Matters’ theme of “Living with Intention.”

Intention is essentially your goal, what you want to happen. When Pagans prepare spells, we put our intent into them. I try to explain this to the mundane people by comparing spell work to ‘enhanced’ prayer.

Inner Journey:


“Growth takes place in a person by working at a deep inner level in a sustained atmosphere of silence.”
— Dr. Ira Progoff

How can we hear our wise voice of intuition if we are always thinking, talking and distracted by outer events?

If we take time daily to experience physical stillness and to direct our attention inside, we can begin to find the peace, love, will and wisdom that exist as our essence.

“Only when one is connected to one’s own core is one connected to others… And, for me, the core, the inner spring, can best be refound through solitude.”
— Anne Morrow Lindbergh

“In the sweet territory of silence we touch the mystery. It’s the place of reflection and contemplation, and it’s the place where we can connect with the deep knowing, to the deep wisdom way.”
— Angeles Arrien


A Note from the Universe

Isn’t it odd? Of all the people in all the world who are starting to “get it,” how few actually give it to themselves.

I think it’s because they forget to live it.

Live it,

Daily Wisdom
January 25, 2022

“Choice of attention – is to the inner life what choice of action is to the outer. In both cases, a man is responsible for his choice and must accept the consequences, whatever they may be.”

-W.H. Auden

We decide where we put our attention, and wherever we put our attention grows, and becomes more important in our lives. We decide how to spend our days, what to read, where to go, what to say and with whom to talk. All of that has some affect on our inner life. We can feel it; we can see the results

-Lissa Coffey

The World is not so big that it can hold choices you are unable to make or decisions that could overwhelm you. Be exceptionally confident, capable, and at ease in public and private sectors today.
