Musings on God

January 29, 2013

Comments Off on Musings on God

God… We have had an “on and off, again” sort of relationship since I was child. I grew up viewing God as my “Father”.  It wasn’t until I was a teen that I began to lose my faith in “Him”.  How could any Father turn his children away – going as far as damning them […]

Challenges and the Journey: We GOT this!

January 28, 2013

Comments Off on Challenges and the Journey: We GOT this!

Yesterday, I spoke about The Journey and how my perspective with regard to it was enhanced by my recent trip to New Orleans… We are ALL – every single one of us – on a spiritual journey; a “hero’s” journey, as it were and every challenge we encounter along the way is a part of that […]

Journeying: A Perspective of One Traveler

January 27, 2013

2

One of the most profound lessons I learned last weekend… REALLY learned… was the idea that it’s ALL about the Journey and NOT the destination.  One that Rev. Meg of the Church of the Larger Fellowship (CLF), who headed the trip to New Orleans, began reinforcing from the beginning, even before we departed for Louisiana. […]

Peace As A Process

January 14, 2013

9

I’m low on energy this morning. I was low on energy yesterday too. How can I tell? I can tell by the fact that Ego – that little voice that likes to criticize and nit-pick and complain – is carrying out its business in stentorian style this morning. The messages cascading through my mind are […]

Surrender: My Own Musings

January 13, 2013

4

My meanderings… the bits of wisdom I’ve been guided to, which have spanned across this grand and beautiful web we are so fortunate to have access to have seemingly begun to center around one theme in particular as of late – surrender. I return to Kozo’s post on Everyday Gurus with regard to surrender and […]

Bloggers For Peace: The Secret to Peace

January 8, 2013

9

The other day, as I was catching up in this part of the blogosphere that I share with all of you, I happened to come across the blog Everyday Gurus and Kozo’s idea for a network of bloggers to blog about peace in 2013.  I thought this was a GREAT idea!  What better way to […]

Another Look At Gratitude

November 14, 2012

Comments Off on Another Look At Gratitude

The day has the potential to be a very busy one, however, I am happy to say that the service I will be presenting to the Fellowship tonight is done!  (And for that… I am most grateful!) Admittedly, I procrastinated.  I didn’t start writing and organizing it until this morning.  Why?  Especially when things are […]

Honoring the Ebbs and Flows

November 9, 2012

7

It is has been a strange week on this end… In many respects, I’ve felt rather uninspired.  Where inspiration had been a free flowing fountain within me the past month or so, the well has seemingly dried up. And such has not only been the case here, but where my progress with NaNo is concerned […]

Balance: A Conscious Decision

October 26, 2012

1

With November quickly approaching and NaNoWriMo riding its coat tails, I’ve plunged into the process of preparation this week.  I’ve been inspired. In-spirit.  My inner child delighting in world and character creation.  I know this because my days – with the girls at school – have quickly flown by.  Time has seemingly lost all integrity. […]

Goodbye To Perfection: Just Do It!

October 22, 2012

2

This morning, I downloaded Evernote onto my computer.  I have it on my iPad and my laptop, but had yet to add it to this computer.  I made the decision to get organized (again) where my writing is concerned.  Many “plot bunnies” are beginning to hop all about me, and I don’t want to misplace […]

Control: Fear Cleverly Disguised

October 21, 2012

2

Control. For many of us, much time and energy are wasted on the illusion of it. Originally, I was going to write about ‘faith’ and the difficulty I have in learning to have it.  Faith in the Universe, in others, in mySelf.  Yet, as I began to dig deeper within, I realized one thing.  The […]

The Clue By Four and A Blog Award

October 18, 2012

12

I am a fiercely independent individual. Perhaps, it has something to do with my nature.  I am an Aries, after all.  Or maybe it is given that, as a child, I was an only child or even a latch-key kid in the early years of my life.  It might even be due to the fact that, […]

Changes On the Horizon

October 17, 2012

4

The “New Year” is nearly upon us… Within the Pagan tradition I developed quite a few of my beliefs, it is believed that Samhain, which falls approximately at the end of October and the beginning of November, begins the New Year.  I say “approximately” because the Sabbat (or holiday) is actually based upon the journey […]

Kaleidoscope of Life

October 13, 2012

4

One would think I would have learned by now that when one attempts to separate oneself into categories – boxes – situations quite often do not take a positive turn. Take blogging for an example. In the past, I have attempted to split the all of my being into various parts, different blogs actually, out […]

The Crash Looms: Everyday Musings

October 9, 2012

Comments Off on The Crash Looms: Everyday Musings

“Come to me,” Spirit calls like a parent to a beloved child When darkness has settled upon the world. “Not yet,” I call back. Entirely too much yet to be done; to be experienced. “Come to me,” It calls once more. “Maybe later,” says I. The amusements too engaging.  My senses on overtime. Silence hangs […]

Unconsciousness Moments: The Freedom to Be Human

October 5, 2012

Friday has arrived!  Just as it always does I suppose.  Being a stay-at-home-mom, one might think I wouldn’t look forward to Friday and the weekends.  Indeed, I enjoy having my family at home, about me, but there is something I look forward to just as much.  The ability to sleep in. Normal wake up time […]
