There’s a path that leads to Nowhere
In a meadow that I know,
Where an inland island rises
And the stream is still and slow.

A Bountiful Moment
The load of tomorrow, added to the load of yesterday, carried today can make any person falter….Live for today!
Daily Thought: If you think about what happened yesterday, or what is supposed to happen tomorrow you will lose time and the moments you should be living today. This emotional distraction will get you stuck in a negative self-banter. Focus on the now. Live in the moment and attend to the needs of the most current you.
Daily Practice: Work on staying in the present moment. Be conscious of your thoughts. If they are distractions from the now change them immediately by focusing on the things around you to ground you in the present moment. This will allow you to work on what needs to be done today vs. what wasn’t done yesterday or what needs to be done tomorrow. Enjoy your current day
Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: Irish-American Witchcraft: Dead, Mad, or a Poet
Dead, mad, or a poet is a phrase we hear sometimes in various branches of Celtic-inspired paganism. Having heard it repeatedly I began to wonder where exactly the phrase came from and how it related to folk belief, and this led me on a quest to see if I could find out. Like so many things the answer turned out to be both simple and complicated. Read more ………………….
Inner Journey: Value Just Being
“To do great work a man must be very idle as well as very industrious.”
— Samuel Butler
Many of us have been taught to believe that we are valued for what we do, not just for who we are. ‘Doing’ is important, but to keep life in balance, we also need time to just ‘be.’
Henry David Thoreau expressed this so well in Walden Pond:
“There were times when I could not afford to sacrifice the bloom of the present moment to any work, whether of the head or hand.
“Sometimes, on a summer morning, I sat in my sunny doorway from sunrise till noon, rapt in a revery, amidst the pines and hickories and sumacs, in undisturbed solitude and stillness, while the birds sang around or flitted noiseless through the house, until by the sun falling in at my west window, or the noise of some traveller’s wagon on the distant highway, I was reminded of the lapse of time.
“I grew in those seasons like corn in the night, and they were far better than any work of the hands would have been.”

Daily Wisdom: What desire do we yearn for?
March 14, 2018
“Our desires always increase with our possessions; the knowledge that something remains yet unenjoyed, impairs our enjoyment of the good before us.”
As we continue on the spiritual path, we notice that our desires change. While we recognize that desire for material things is our human nature, the novelty of those things subsides. We yearn to experience our connection with God more fully. Our desire for spiritual growth moves us along the path.
MNN: Why planting a garden is better for bird-watching than filling a feeder
One of the most popular pastimes in the United States is bird-watching. The way millions of Americans participate is by placing a feeder in the backyard and waiting for the various species to arrive. While this has a few upsides — including being easy and creating a stationary place to watch the activity — backyard bird feeders also have downsides, including attracting unwanted critters from raccoons to coyotes to bears, to providing a small range of food to a small group of birds, with much of it getting wasted when it’s left scattered on the ground.
