Hold Fast to Dreams

“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird, that cannot fly.”
~ Langston Hughes

firebirdI once heard that your vision has to be bigger than you are. When we ease our television time and focus as the eagle on our own visions, the ascension happens. As we move toward the light of the Spring Equinox, we honor the direction of the eagle in the east. The story of the firebird is told in many cultures – the great bird that all other birds see as creator. Continue reading “Hold Fast to Dreams”

The Happy Road to Destiny

“We gather together to ask the lords blessings.”  Old baptist hymn

Confession-and-ForgivenessA lot of my fellow 12 step travelers on the happy road to destiny come to embody the wisdom taught by the simple laws of confession, restitution and service.  In preparing for Spring Equinox ceremony, it is good to go within for soul searching and do an honest appraisal of our strengths and weaknesses, and do the reparation work of listing  all of the people who we have harmed (beginning with me) and became willing to make amends. Notice daily our mind talk and to correct our course when off course.  I aspire to live in a way that does not create new wreckage.  Restitution is for the soul, and restores us to sanity or balance.  This is walking my talk.

Knowing What Is True

YOU CANNOT COME TO KNOW WHAT IS TRUE UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO STAKE EVERYTHING ON WHAT IS FALSE. CHARLES WILLIAMS

Easy Does It, But Do It

“EASY DOES IT, BUT DO IT”

maxresdefaultThis has been a “weird” week -computers won’t work, equipment breaking down and in spite of that,  business is great and off to a great start as far as abundance flowing with ease and grace. There is much to do to keep current on our orders, and both Mandi and I are working day and night to get the ship of CMD back on course.  Grace is a gift from the spirit world as is mercy, so this is the time to deeply connect with our values, ethics and ways to be.

Our First Memory

“Our first memory when we are formed in the belly of the mother is that of our heartbeat and our mother’s heartbeat – two hearts beating as one”  — Patrick

As we begin our New year, there is something magic in the air.  This is the time we are most connected to the dream, so as I heard recently on a Link TV program, this is  the time to turn off the television and connect with your own visions!  I am so grateful for my friendships that have pulled me through some dark times and in the winter is the time for silence and reflection, and finishing what we start.

Holy-Well-St-288x300The North is the element of air, so we give thanks to the breath of life, and find those things that inspire us to the highest within.  We make the descent to face our demons and find the healing tears that can wash away our pain.  I loved visiting the holy wells of Ireland, and still have some of that water that is our medicine.  The pristine waters and wells help lubricate and hydrate us, as we are the water and we are the air.
