September Quotes

“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,
Justice to be in equal measure,
Harvest thankfulness our call.”

Caitlin Matthews, Celtic Devotional

Patheos-Pagan: Cultivating Resilience & Orienting in the Place You Are – Part One

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”– Audre Lorde

Pagan Playlist: Danheim – Skapanir (Full album 2020) Nordic Folk & Dark Viking Music



“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.

And until you move, there isn’t a path.

Yet do these simple things and you totally own me.

Friendsters forever,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom
September 15, 2022


“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!

-Lissa Coffey
