ThoughtCo: Samhain Cemetery Visit

In many cultures, the late fall is a time in which the dead are honored with great ceremony. A wonderful example of this is in Mexico, where Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) celebrations are a joyful and festive part of the season. Rather than being sad and mournful, families go to cemeteries where they honor their loved ones with picnics, colorful altars, and even parades.

Patheos-Pagan: Witchcraft Is My Medicine

Witchcraft is the medicine that heals the spirit and nourishes the soul for those who walk this crooked path. It’s not found in a pill or in a ball of light, but in the pungent scent of herbs, the wild energy of the natural world, and under the pale moonlight. For centuries, our true medicine has been robbed by others who sought to silence us.

Inner Journey:

DREAM!

“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

Vision

“We are all visionaries, and what we see is our soul in things.”

-Henry Amiel (1821-1881)

Ah! This is something to think about – what we see is our soul in things… not necessarily that we are seeing with our soul, but that we relate, we identify, with our visions. When we have a vision, we become a creative force, bringing that vision into reality. We see that the vision is not only a “thing”, it is a part of who we are.

MBG: Tonight’s New Moon In Scorpio Is All About Power & Seduction — Here’s How To Tap Into It

As we plunge into the shadows of the unseen universe within ourselves, our eyes, as well as our inner vision, will eventually adjust to the darkness. It is here where we can begin to finally see the light, as parts of ourselves that were once hidden are revealed. New moons are typically invisible to the naked eye, but we can look to the dark night sky as though it were a blank canvas—symbolic for new beginnings and intention setting.

Daily Good: A Call to Caring

“At the heart of caring is an ‘and’ not an ‘or’. Deep within us lies a potential that transcends our artificial limitations. Can we embrace the possibility that we are fully capable of caring globally, in every direction — that the compass of our caring could open 360 degrees?” In his new book ‘Caring’ Tibetan lama Tarthang Thulku dives deep into an exploration of caring the potent antidote it offers to the ills of our time. The following excerpt, authored by his daughter shares thoughts on how to create a more caring world.

EarthSky News: Peer out our galaxy’s south window

Tonight, or any clear November evening, try using the Great Square of Pegasus to star-hop your way to a view out our galaxy’s south window. In other words, you’ll be looking away from the flat plane of our Milky Way – where most of our galaxy’s stars reside – and toward intergalactic space. You can do this no matter what part of Earth you’re standing on.

Patheos-Pagan:  Irish-American Witchcraft: Witchcraft with Fairies; Walking the Wild Woods

There is a long history of witches working with fairies in various ways, both learning from them and being in service to them. In modern paganism we more often see this relationship played out very differently, with the Good Folk being approached from a more ceremonial magic perspective or treated as a kind of spirit guide or ally.

Inner Journey: 

WHAT IS LOVE?

“When mystics use the word love, they use it very carefully — in the deeply spiritual sense, where to love is to know; to love is to act. If you really love, from the depths of your Consciousness, that love gives you a native wisdom. You perceive the needs of others intuitively and clearly, with detachment from any personal desires; and you know how to act creatively to meet those needs, dexterously surmounting any obstacle that comes in the way. Such is the immense, driving power of love.”
— Eknath Easwaran

“Therefore, when I say that ‘I love,’ it is not I who love, but in reality Love who acts through me. Love is not so much something I do as something that I am. Love is not a doing but a state of being – a relatedness, a connectedness to another mortal, an identification with her or him that simply flows within me and through me, independent of my intentions or my efforts.”
— Robert A. Johnson

“When you are aware that you are the force that is Life, anything is possible. Miracles happen all the time, because those miracles are performed by the heart. The heart is in direct communion with the human soul, and when the heart speaks, even with the resistance of the head, something inside you changes; your heart opens another heart, and true love is possible.”
— Don Miguel Ruiz

Beauty

“I pray thee, O God, that I may be beautiful within.” -Socrates

Ah, Socrates! Wisdom is beautiful! You are beautiful! Who would argues that this great philosopher wasn’t beautiful? It’s like a supermodel wishing to be more photogenic. We are all beautiful simply because we ARE. We are here, on this beautiful planet. We cannot be MORE beautiful, because we are already all that. Yet we can recognize that beauty, cultivate it, cherish it. We can express beauty, and show gratitude for it.
