“Hail! Journeyer of the Heavens,
Queen of Brightness, King of Beauty
Gifts of gladness richly bringing,
Autumn sheaves and red leaves’ fall,
Generous be the heart within us,
Open be our hands to all,

Harvest thankfulness our call.”

Mountain Rose Herbs: Blog: Bilberry and Hawthorn Berry Syrup
I am a fan of Lynn Rosseto Kasper’s public radio cooking show The Splendid Table.

Patheos-Pagan: Cultivating Resilience & Orienting in the Place You Are – Part One
SEPTEMBER 11, 2022 BY IRISANYA MOON
“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”– Audre Lorde
This quote/challenge has fueled me and inspired me long before the sheltering in place and physical distancing started. Long before things became different, quiet, as though there was a great pause

Inner Journey: WHAT BLOCKS CONNECTION?
“People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.”
— Joseph F. Newton
We experience soul when we really connect with life — when we stop and consciously experience what is happening.
We lose soul with:
resistance – to anyone or anything
superficiality – we avoid depth of experience
control – we try to control the relationship
selfishness – we remain self-centered.
Each of these attitudes fosters separation rather than connection. Once again, soul lives in relating.
Take time to become aware of, and perhaps journal on how you relate to other people and things in your life.
“We have to decide for ourselves what’s nourishing to our souls, and do those things over others.”
— Thomas Moore
A Note from the Universe
Until you speak, there isn’t a promise.

“Patience is not passive: on the contrary it is active; it is concentrated strength.”
-Edward George Bulwer-Lytton (1803-1873) English novelist
Look at people who are patient. Along with patience comes a kind of calm, a deep faith, a beautiful presence. Compared with people who are impatient – who seem stressed out, angry, and hurried. Who has more strength? The patient person can do anything because that person recognizes his or her connection with the Universe. Patience can move mountains!
