You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand. Woodrow Wilson
I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit. John Steinbeck
Human spirit is the ability to face the uncertainty of the future with curiosity and optimism. It is the belief that problems can be solved, differences resolved. It is a type of confidence. And it is fragile. It can be blackened by fear and superstition. Bernard Beckett T
oday the rains came. The heavens opened up, the gods cried, to wash Mother earth, to cleanse her again today from yesterday’s heartaches, the pains, the angers, the sorrows that came. The sky, completely gray, has little patches of light where Father Sol, the Sun tries to shine through but His light is not penetrating the full clouds. See, the clouds soak up water, become too full, then the rains come. Much like our lives, we soak the negativity, the darkness, then we wonder why we are drained of life, of happiness. Much like sister Cloud, we must release all of yesterday’s bad times, and be ready to be open to positive encouraging thoughts, ideas, and plans. We are here to succeed. We are here to have abundance. We are here to accept the very best. We are here for our dreams.
Animal totems: Tiger – one of the biggest cats in the world, Tiger is protective. Often times, a struggle with someone who is protective of their child, their partner, themselves, we are thought to have a “tiger by the tail” ( old proverb). Her totem is one of reminding us to protect our dreams, our world. Her medicine reminds us that power comes from inner instinct, wisdom.
Lady Moon is Waning Gibbous today. She remains in Libra while the Sun, Father Sol, stays in Pisces. This reminds us to stay fluid, flexible while remaining balanced during the rough waters. Gold is a soft ore that is considered a very precious stone. The color alone creates the ability to shine even when only the moon is out, or during the darkest storm. Wear Gold to build confidence.
I am off this morning as usual to take my mother to her worship. I will return this evening as usual. May the fairies dance around each of us today. Love ya, Me, Cherokee, Frankiecapone, Sugar, Apache, Apollo, T
