And living waters touch my feet.

Spiritual Unite: The Dragon Keeper – A Symbolic Story About The Kundalini Rising Inside All Of Us
A symbolic fictional story about the kundalini Rising inside all of us.
Once upon a time, in a far away land, a dragon was formed. This dragon was a creative aspect of you because, energetically, you are a serpent of life. You are the womb of all creation. You were born from the egg. You are destined to be the fire breather, as the raging beast that you are.
ThoughtCo: Greek Paganism: Hellenic Polytheism
The phrase “Hellenic polytheism” is actually, much like the word “Pagan,” an umbrella term. It is used to apply to a wide range of polytheistic spiritual paths that honor the pantheon of the ancient Greeks.

Mid-winter is especially challenging because the festive glow of the holidays has faded into the frigid darkness, seemingly leaving us nothing to look forward to until spring.
MNN: Scientists just found the oldest material on Earth — and it smells funny
7 billion-year-old stardust found on Australian meteorite.
Fifty years ago a meteorite landed on Earth near Murchison, a rural village located in Victoria, Australia. Over the years, scientists have studied each crevice of the celestial rock.
EarthSky News: Moon and Spica from late night to dawn
Unless you’re a night owl, you probably won’t see the moon and Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo the Maiden, rising up into your eastern sky before your bedtime. The twosome will come up quite late tonight, at or around midnight. That applies to most everywhere worldwide.
Patheos-Pagan: The Witch’s Compass: Finding Direction With The Seven Winds
Within Traditional Witchcraft, the concept of the Compass sometimes erroneously replaces that of the Circle. This is a common misconception that frequently identifies these as synonymous terms.
“The most pathetic person in the world is the person who has sight, but no vision.”
— Helen Keller
What’s the big picture for your life? Always have a larger, purposeful, even spiritually ideal picture of where you are going. Your mind needs to have a clear and challenging vision to draw you ever upwards.
“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and follow where they lead.”
— Louisa May Alcott
“The only limits are, as always, those of vision.”
— James Broughton
A Note from the Universe
It’s not difficult. It’s easy. Everything is easy.
Time and space aren’t supposed to be the Harvard of the cosmos. They’re more like kindergarten… at recess.
The life you long for already exists. You’re supernatural. I’m your partner. Together we’ll get there and you can have it all.

“Beautiful, tender flowers grow upon the lava lips of Mono craters, pines ascend their ashy slopes, and it is just where the glaciers have crushed heaviest that the greatest quantity of beautiful life appears.”
-John Muir (1838-1914)
Life has a way of showing up. Grass makes its way through cracks in a sidewalk. Daffodils poke through previously frozen ground to find the sun. We might think of flowers as delicate and fragile, but they are strong, and full of life!
Daily Tarot: Death
A change has been in the air for some time and today the actual transformation could happen. There’s nothing to be afraid of, or to dread, or to fear losing. Room is being made and energy is being set aside for something new and better for you. It could be something small or something large, but whatever it is will be meaningful and affect your daily life
