October Quotes

Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.”

Samuel Butler

Pagan Playlist: Blackmore’s Night – Will O’ The Wisp (Official Video)



“We can’t fear the past. Fear is a future thing. And since the future’s all in our heads, fear must be a head thing.”
— Tom Payne

It helps to understand that fear is usually a projection into the future. We typically fear what MIGHT happen rather than what is happening now.

Susan Jeffers notes that 90% of what we fear usually does not materialize. So replace your images of disaster on the TV screen in your mind with awareness of what is really happening. And don’t allow your thinking to change channels.

“I have not ceased being fearful, but I have ceased to let fear control me.”
— Erica Jong

If a touch of anxiety serves to give you a greater sense of caution, that can be a good thing.
