Cat’s Morning Bits for March 1, 2018
Good morning and welcome to a new month! So grab a cup of your favorite morning brew and start things off with “Today’s Inspirations”. I hope you find something here that will make you feel good or help you on your path today.
Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.
Robert Frost (1874-1963)
Mind Body Green: Feng Shui Tweaks For Every Room In Your Home
Feng shui is about more than just moving around furniture or creating a “Zen”-looking home. Feng shui gives us tools to reduce stress, improve our well-being, and invite joy into our lives.
Similar to meditation, the practice of feng shui is deeply steeped in mindfulness, in slowing down and noticing the details in your life so that you can truly experience the present moment. The words “feng shui” are Chinese and translate to “wind” and “water.”
Beliefnet: Why Good People Captivate Us
Humankind is captivated by kindness.
Muammar Gaddafi, before his death, was one of the richest people of the 21st century, with a net worth of around 200 billion dollars.

MNN: 9 Otherworldly Winter Wonderlands
Tropical beaches might seem like the most inviting option for wintertime travel. That said, some northerly destinations offer festivities and attractions that make braving the cold worthwhile. Other places are not as frigid as their image suggests.

A Bountiful Moment:
No matter how great the effort. Some things just take time. Warren Buffet
Patience is a learned virtue. It is difficult to wait for things to happen if you are working hard to achieve your goals. So understanding the wait is a part of the journey can provide you the opportunity to continue to grow without losing hope and momentum.
Are you an impatient person? Do you lose your desire to achieve if results donï¿½t happen immediately? If so begin to practice using your down time to find new angles to support your desired goal. Can you do more research? Can you re-evaluate what you are doing to make the journey better, easier? Down time is not the time to give up it is the opportunity to step back and look at what you are doing. It is the opportunity to add new goals and move forward from the plateau you have now reached.
Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: In the Presence and Service of the Gods
One need not believe in goddesses and gods to be a Pagan or a Witch or a Druid, but I can’t imagine living without the ecstasy of the divine in my life, and whole-heartedly believing in its reality.
Several months ago my wife and I were asked to take part in a Dionysus Ritual planned for PantheaCon (that big festival you read way too much about) in San Jose California. We replied with of course, but then inquired about just what the ritual would be focusing on, and if it was written yet.

— Philip Crosby
“Just as the tumultuous chaos of a thunderstorm brings a nurturing rain that allows life to flourish, so too in human affairs times of advancement are preceded by times of disorder. Success comes to those who can weather the storm.”
— I Ching No. 3
“If you want things to be different, perhaps the answer is to become different yourself.”
— Norman Vincent Peale
A Note from the Universe
Would you mind if we filmed you for our latest documentary, called “Life Rocks”? It’s a piece we’re doing for the Angel Network here.
You are by far the most logical choice. Not just because your life already rocks, but because you came from behind to be who you are today, and because everyone in the unseen has long been whispering about the hotly anticipated arrival of your new thriving business and a steady income.
