“Well, the sun’s not so hot in the sky today
And you know I can see summertime slipping on away
A few more geese are gone, a few more leaves turning red
But the grass is as soft as a feather in a featherbed
So I’ll be king and you’ll be queen
Our kingdom’s gonna be this little patch of green
Won’t you lie down here right now
In this September grass
Won’t you lie down with me now

SEPTEMBER 15, 2022 BY TOM SWISS
It’s been five years since my father died, changing my relationship with my ancestors.
Anniversaries of our bad days are funny. As we get close, our brain skids away from them.
I know quite well that September 18, 2022, will be the fifth anniversary of the worst news I’ve yet received in this life. And it’s something I was thinking about a lot up until a few weeks ago, putting it in the context of the fresh potential this year has brought —

THE POWER OF ACCEPTANCE
“It is permissible to take life’s blessings with both hands provided thou dost know thyself prepared in the opposite event to take them just as gladly. This applies to food and friends and kindred, to anything God gives and takes away… As long as God is satisfied do thou rest content. If he is pleased to want something else of thee, still rest content.”
— Meister Eckhart
Our life begins to change in magical ways when we open to the experience of life AS IT IS. With acceptance, we stop fighting what is happening. And this creates space, an opening for new relationships to unfold.
Explore unconditionally saying yes to the facts of life. Accept your past and where you are now. Unconditional acceptance is unconditional love and this is healing.
“Sometimes what seems like surrender isn’t surrender at all. It’s about what’s going on in our hearts. About seeing clearly the way life is and accepting it and being true to it, whatever the pain, because the pain of not being true to it is far, far greater.”
— Nicholas Evans
A Note from the Universe
Did you realize, that whenever you gave anything, to anyone, you gave to the entire world?
And did you realize that for every path you’ve walked, for every stone you’ve turned over, and for every door you’ve knocked on, you did so for everyone?
And finally, did you realize that whenever you felt love, for any reason whatsoever, you irrevocably lifted the entire planet higher into the light?

“Nothing which is at all times and in every way agreeable to us can have objective reality. It is of the very nature of the real that it should have sharp corners and rough edges, that it should be resistant, should be itself. Dream-furniture is the only kind on which you never stub your toes or bang your knee.-C.S. Lewis
We’ve often heard the phrase “harsh reality.” As if reality can smack us in the face. But that smack could just be a wake-up call to alert us to the bigger “reality.” When we stub a toe, we’re brought immediately to the present moment! Living in present-moment awareness we can more clearly see what is real and what is not, what is important and what is dispensable.

Daily Tarot: The Lovers
Relax, take a deep breath, and don’t let any feelings of anxiety derail your plans for the day. A certain level of nervousness may be in the air today but it doesn’t have to be contagious and you don’t have to catch it. If a touch of anxiety serves to give you a greater sense of caution, that can be a good thing.
