Patheos-Pagan: Outside the Circle: The Bad Fairies Of Litha
JUNE 16, 2016 BY DANETTE WILSON
Litha or Midsummer, a time of bonfires, mugwort, mythical beings, nights and days of mischief and love. The veil is thin. The Celts, the Norse and the Slavs believed that there were three ‘spirit nights’ in the year when magic ran amok and the Otherworld was near. The first was Halloween, the second was May Eve and the third was Midsummer Eve. All sorts of enchantments are in the air now and Spirits and Fairies abound. What follows here are some of them. These are not your good fairies but tricksters and darker spirits.

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW
“There is in all visible things – a hidden wholeness.”
— Thomas Merton
“From a hologrammatic viewpoint, …you are one little physical image that reflects all of humanity when projected spiritually upon the cosmic screen.”
— Wayne Dyer
“As above, so below.”
Everything is connected. The universe is a hologram where every part contains the whole. Outside echoes the inside. The lower is a reflection of the higher. The other is a reflection of you. We are all a microcosm of each other. The big picture is within us and even our cells.
Be open to see the interconnections, influences and inter-relationships of things.
“Unity consciousness is a state of enlightenment where we pierce the mask of illusion which creates separation and fragmentation. Behind the appearance of separation is one unified field of wholeness. Here the seer and the scenery are one.”
— Deepak Chopra
“To me there is no difference between one person and another; I behold all as soul-reflections of the one God. I can’t think of anyone as a stranger, for I know that we are all part of the One Spirit.”
— Paramahansa Yogananda

“The older one gets the more one feels that the present must be enjoyed: it is a precious gift, comparable to a state of grace.”
-Madame Curie, 1928
We do become more wise as we get older – and part of that is understanding the precious value of the present moment. Maybe it is because we have more of a past to look back on, so we can see just where and when we experienced the most beautiful times of our lives. And maybe it is because we have had more time to enjoy the moments, and we know how good that feels.

You can make today memorable purely by the strength of your unfailing hope for all things to work out for the best. No matter how muddled the events of the day, how confused or how many mixed messages people give you, especially at work, your innate hopeful spirit will cut through most of the mist and give you good results. Look forward to many satisfying encounters, however little or much gets done.
