January Quotes

“Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;

To watch his woods fill up with snow.”

EarthSky News: Earth closest to sun on January 4

Earth’s orbit around the sun isn’t a circle. Instead, it’s an ellipse. So it makes sense that Earth swings closest to the sun once each year. For 2023, that moment happens at 16 UTC (10 a.m. CST) on January 4 … this morning for us in North America.

Pagan Playlist: Most Beautiful Haunting & Powerful Female Vocal Music | Best Dramatic Evocative Vocal Music



We think that God has blessed us if we don’t have too many troubles. In fact, religions have erroneously taught us that pain is punishment for our sins. We often ask, “What have I done wrong?” when things do not go the way we want.

Yet, to become ourselves in the truest and deepest sense, we must face our own duality, which of course includes facing our darkness. As souls we strive for wholeness, not for perfection.

At first, we really don’t know what is going on. We just find life difficult, challenging and often painful. Eventually, after much experience and reflection, we start to find meaning in it all. Eventually, we gladly accept the means whereby we can do the Soul work we have come for.

As we become conscious as Souls, we walk our journey purposefully, embracing the reality of our earthly nature along with the truth of our divine nature.

“When we are conscious of our personal uniqueness and our universal nature we express ourselves creatively. In this way we fulfill our dreams and our life purpose.”
— Andrew Schneider

Good. Because I have. It was called the “Big Bang,” and every moment of every day I walk in your shoes.

I knew what I was doing,
