Tetraktys: 5 Zen Ideas and How to Apply Them
I’ve already written a few times about Zen Buddhism but I like to get back to it from time to time. The reason for it is that Zen is more of a philosophy or a way of life than a traditional religion. People often say that about Buddhism in general, but Zen is by far the least dogmatic sect of the religion.

Elephant Journal: Venus & the 12 Love-Styles of the Zodiac.

Ah Venus! We all know that somehow Venus connotes love. She’s the Roman goddess associated with sexual desire, beauty, wine, roses, and all things abundantly lovely.

EarthSky News: Moon, Mars, Uranus from February 9 to 11

On February 9, 10 and 11, 2019, use the moon to find the red planet Mars, which still shines as brightly as a 1st-magnitude star, or one of the brightest stars in our sky. Then let Mars help you find a much fainter planet, distant Uranus. You’ll have no trouble seeing Mars, even in the glare of the waxing crescent moon. But chances are you won’t spot the planet Uranus with the eye alone; use your binoculars for this one, or a small telescope

Patheos-Pagan: Winter’s Lessons of Silence: Putting the “Be” Back in Imbolc

During the Imbolc-tide leading up to High Winter, I received a message from the dark earth below me. As I observed the yellow grass in my back-yard temple, and how it ceases to grow in winter… and the tulip poplar tree stands so still, stripped bare of his leaves, they reminded me about the importance of dormancy.

Inner Journey:

APPLY WHAT YOU KNOW

“Knowledge of any kind … brings about a change in awareness from where it is possible to create new realities.”
— Deepak Chopra

As we evolve, we handle knowledge in different ways. We tend to move through these stages:
• We are unaware.
• We become aware of facts, data, information.
• We comprehend meaning from the facts.
• We can personally apply the information in our lives.
• We have wisdom – enlightened, we can lovingly apply our knowledge to world affairs.
• We live in truth.

How have you personally experienced a shifting of applying knowledge from one level to the next?

“More important than finding the teacher is finding and following the truth of the teaching….”
— Sogyal Rinpoche

“There can be no knowledge without emotion. We may be aware of a truth, yet until we have felt its force, it is not ours. To the cognition of the brain must be added the experience of the soul.”
— Arnold Bennett

Usually miracles happen a good bit before you see their effects.

Grace

“Grace comes into the soul, as the morning sun into the world; first a dawning; then a light; and at last the sun in his full and excellent brightness.”

-Thomas Adams (1640)
First we glimpse it, then we recognize it, then we know it as ours. Then we embrace it, and bask in its beautiful glow. And then it starts to radiate from us, and we see it as a part of who we are. This is the process of our spiritual growth. With grace comes love and patience and acceptance and reverence. It’s awesome!

-Lissa Coffey

Thought For The Day: Jan. 21, 2019 “Moving Forward”

Happy Monday,

Moving on. This happens to all of us at some point in our lives. The point is that things change.  People change, we change, relationships change, circumstances change. Often no one is to blame because things just happen.  Remember that change brings growth and by moving on with grace we pave the way  for the blessings that lie ahead.

Shine -Inspire-Be inspired-Grow!: Cat’s Angel Message for February 19, 2018

Shine -Inspire-Be inspired-Grow!: Cat’s Angel Message for February 19, 2018  

February’s Theme:  Trusting in the “unseen” and  believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.

Inspire people to do things for themselves. Inspire people to think for themselves.

 

-Bono

219: Throughout our lives we constantly learn new things and it is through this process that we continue to grow. The knowledge and insights that we acquire can be shared and plays an important role in our “service to others”. Service to others means that we are putting them before ourselves and while this is a good thing the angels want us to remember the importance of balance. We can tip the scales in either direction and give too much or not enough. There are many ways that we can be of service and lead or teach others, however the simplest forms are through word, deed or example. If you think about it it’s pretty cool that these simple things have the power to inspire those around us whether we’re aware of it or not. Today we are being asked to share our light with others through word, deed or example. Look to the people who inspire you and strive to inspire others.  Shine -Inspire-Be Inspired-Grow!

Archangel Haniel brings grace into our lives. She shows us the path to peace and harmony and helps us to stay poised under stress. Mother Mary teaches us about compassion which is so needed in the world today. The path to true compassion embodies both love and understanding of your own views and those of others and the Ascended Master Buddha helps us stay centered in peace and helps us to find our balance point.

Our Sacred Stone for today is Malachite. Which helps to support friendships and promotes empathy towards others. It also strengthens our ability to absorb and process information so that we can show our feelings in a positive way.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

An Encouraging Word: Cat’s Angel Message for January 7 , 2018  

January’s Theme: Focus on dreams and goals not your fears or past happenings. Thoughts manifest into reality and through positive focus we lessen the power of the things we fear.

A student never forgets an encouraging private word,
when it is given with sincere respect and admiration.
– William Lyon Phelps

17: Sometimes it feels like no one notices when we seek to improve ourselves or our situation. people are more likely to tell us that we are screwing up instead of saying “Good Job”. So today we are receiving a big hug from the Angels. They simply want you to know that you are doing a good job and are on the right path.  They are surrounding  you with positive vibes so open up to receive this gift. Embrace this energy and then send it back out in the universe. This helps you to draw and generate more good things that can be shared with others.  The angels are also asking us to acknowledge the work of others. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone told someone else “Good job!” “Way to go!” or “Thank you for doing your best!” It is through simple things like these that inspire the growth of unity and community. Share some of your optimistic energy today with others for a win-win situation.

Archangel Haniel helps us to be patient with ourselves and with others. She teaches us how to live in grace and peace. The Egyptian goddess Isis fills us with peaceful power, confidence and graceful strength. Helps our spirit to soar and encourages us to inspire ourselves and others, while ascended Master Maitreya (aka Laughing Buddha) promotes laughter, joy and peace, and his joyful spirit helps us to release anxiety and worry.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!
