October Quotes

“Colors burst in wild explosions
Fiery, flaming shades of fall
All in accord with my pounding heart
Behold the autumn-weaver
In bronze and yellow dying
Colors unfold into dreams
In hordes of a thousand and one
The bleeding
Unwearing their masks to the last notes of summer
Their flutes and horns in nightly swarming
Colors burst within
Spare me those unending fires
Bestowed upon the flaming shades of fall.”

Dark Tranquility, With the Flaming Shades of Fall

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

Nothing is left to chance.

The choreography of players and circumstances is plotted with mind-numbing precision. Enormous forces of attraction are activated and engaged. The odds for your inevitable success begin skyrocketing. And every second of every day is calibrated and recalibrated… for every thought you think.

Up for some visualizing?

Daily Wisdom
October 21, 2022


“The long-term accommodation that protects marriage and other such relationships is… forgetfulness.”

-Alice Walker, You Can’t Keep a Good Woman Down (1981)

“Forgetfulness” goes beyond forgiveness. First you forgive, then you forget. This is present-moment awareness in action! The past is history – it’s gone, and it can certainly be forgotten. As we grow and change, as our relationships grow and change, forgetfulness can be a welcome accommodation!

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Hermit
Smooth your way through the day by being as respectable as time and circumstance require. Fit in, look and sound the part that you’ve been assigned, and get a lot done with very little or no resistance. In general, being respectable can be a good thing and serve you well, especially when dealing with new people or with those who don’t know you very well
