Pagan Playlist: Solstice Night by S J Tucker


Inner Journey:


“If there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life, as in hoping for another life, and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.”
— Albert Camus

Have you taken ownership of your life?

When we own our lives, we accept what we’ve inherited and the experiences we hold in our memories. We also lay claim to our right to create new conditions if we’re not happy with what’s come before. We assume responsibility for changing what does not suit us. We acknowledge our own special talents and skills, and truly comprehend our right to enjoy the journey. In short, we embrace the meaning and purpose, the mystery and the beauty of our lives.

“Recognize that life is what you get when you’re born … living is what you do with it.”
— Jim Allen

“It began in mystery, and it will end in mystery, but what a savage and beautiful country lies in between.”
— Diane Ackerman

It could be hard to sit still today and every little distraction may look more like an invitation to take a break or start the next thing.

Afterward, maybe take a nice long walk, stretch those legs, and shake the day’s dust off your shoulders.
