September Quotes

“Rain, rain, welcome back,
We’ve missed your song,
Your splatter and smack
On our dusty brown clay, dry so long.
Since last May we’ve not had a drop,
From grey-black clouds swriling by,
Or smelled wet earth, or stepped in muddy slop,
Or listened to thunder from the sky.”

Michael P. Garofalo, Valley Spirit Journal, 2004

Spirituality & Health: Bee-ing Here Now: Lessons From Honey Bees
by Sarah Bowen

What spiritual lessons can we glean from pollinators? Our resident animal chaplain offers wisdom from honeybees.
“What is that?” the mechanic queried, staring at a fuzzy spot on my Jeep’s engine block. I spied an intact, but most certainly dead, honey bee. “Oh no!” I gasped, reaching to relocate the tiny body into my palm. “Awwww,” gushed my burly companion.

Inner Journey:


“Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways.”
— Stephen Vincent Benet

What’s needed for a new relationship with time and life?

Intention — Get really clear about what you want.

Desire — How much do you want something new for yourself? Know your motivation. Desire brings the energy for change.

Belief and/or willingness to trust you can have what you want. If belief is lacking, can you believe in the possibility that you can find a new way of living?

Perseverance, discipline — It takes time and effort to change attitudes and habits. We can’t expect a new life overnight.

Acceptance, both of what’s happening now and of who we are. Until we honestly and openly accept our present situation, we cannot change it.

A willingness to try something new.

“It is so easy to waste our lives: our days, our hours, our minutes. … It is so easy to exist instead of live. Unless you know there is a clock ticking. So many of us changed our lives when we heard a biological clockand decided to have kids. But that sound is a murmur compared to the tolling of mortality.”
— Anna Quindlen


A Note from the Universe

While I would actually LOVE to help every living soul on the planet remember who they were in prior lives, why the pyramids were really built, and how their past beliefs shape present manifestations, I’d infinitely prefer to help them live this lifetime to the fullest, learn some new tricks, and live their dreams.

Which, incidentally, is the only reason anyone ever chooses to come back.

Let’s do this,

Daily Wisdom
September 28, 2022


“Great leadership arises out of great conflict.”

-James MacGregor Burns

In turbulent times, we often find that the best is brought out in us. When there is a need, we rise to the occasion. All of our natural instincts kick in and we help, and serve, and show compassion and empathy. It happens time and time again. But we don’t need to wait for a crisis to help each other. There are opportunities for us to do so every day.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Magician

You have a magic touch today. The right word or action at the right time can instantly turn things around and morph a challenge into an easy opportunity. This is not something to take for granted or to exploit, though. Use your power with a very light touch, if at all. It’s possible that a mere thought or unspoken intention could have influence.
