Every day the sea

blue grey green lavender

pulls away leaving the harbour’s

dark-cobbled undercoat

slick and rutted and worm-riddled, the gulls

walk there among old whalebones, the white

spines of fish blink from the strandy stew

as the hours tick over; and then

far out the faint, sheer

line turns, rustling over the slack,

the outer bars, over the green-furred flats, over

the clam beds, slippery logs,

barnack-studded stones, dragging

the shining sheets forward, deepening,

pushing, wreathing together

wave and seaweed, their piled curvatures

spilling over themselves, lapping

blue grey green lavender, never

resting, not ever but fashioning shore,

continent, everything.

And here you may find me

on almost any morning

walking along the shore so

light-footed so casual.

~ Mary Oliver.

New Week Inspiration ❤️☀ . . . . Enjoy the glory …

On this morning I am greeted by the beauty of existence.
Nature is singing a sacred song that inspires the
awakening spirit. I am at home in my body and at one
with the universe, it is when we embrace our own
mysterious splendor that the heavens rejoice. Enjoy the
glory … and share who you are with
everyone you meet. You are unique and magnificent.
Imagine what you can be and then be what you imagined.
On this morning I am greeted by love and for that I am
grateful and blessed.

#PoeticThursday . . . . To A Rose

Ah! Beautiful Rose!
To me thy petals oft disclose
The flaming Beauty of the tender rays
That in the Master’s Sun I praise!
Beautiful Rose–sweet Rose of tender Truth
That all is Life Forevermore! Oft in my youth
Beside thy ope’ning petals I would lie
Wrapt in the Beauty of thy softness! I
Would gaze upon you as a lover would, and you
Would sweetly, earnestly my raptures view!
Ah! Rose! Most Beautiful Rose!
In thee so tender–God’s Repose
Must surely be–so pure, Sweet Rose, art thou!
Dear Rose, accept my humble praises! How
The love of thee remains, Sweet Rose–in absence, too–
For thou art pure, Kind Rose–all pure and true!

#Omens&Symbols . . .Mandrake, symbol of fertility and prosperity.

This plant, with its human shaped roots, has been considered magical
since the time of the ancient Egyptians. When uprooted, it was said
to utter a shriek that killed anyone in earshot, so a dog was used to carry
out the task. Mandrake is a symbol of enhancement, fertility, and prosperity.

The moon energy is ancient…

“The moon energy is ancient, and with it comes our elders’ insights.
The silver lining to every lesson, a clarity of consciousness
that can be the gift to even the darkest of passages.”

– Emma Mildon

“She used to tell me that a full moon was when
mysterious things happen and wishes come true.”

– Shannon A. Thompson

Full Moon Blessings!

The Full Hunter Moon in Aries on October 13 can stir strong and challenging emotions. This
will be a time of rather high energies due to a celestial alignment of Moon, Sun and Pluto
forming a T-square pattern being at the same degree in their corresponding signs (Aries,
Libra and Capricorn). These energies can trigger some negative reactions, dramatic decisions
and angry resolutions. So, try to stay grounded, neutral and calm. Let your wisdom, not fear
guide you through challenges, shifts and transformations. Remember, that every storm
eventually runs out of rain, so this powerful celestial energy will recede cleansing the space
for new beginnings.

#High recognitions . . .Open air devotions and pilgrimages

“In those days, the inhabitants of Atlantis were the most spiritually
developed human beings on Earth. Their knowledge did not come from
priests, for they knew neither priests nor temples. From ancient times,
they venerated the Almighty Creator, Who had created the Universe…

They held devotions in the open air. At dawn, during either a new
or full moon, they would make pilgrimages to the altar-stones
their ancestors had asked the giants(Nature Beings) to place in the
middle of beautiful forests, usually oak forests.”

– Roselis von Sass (Atlantis, The End of a Continent)
The writer draws inspiration from “The Grail Message”
(In The Light of Truth) by Abd-ru-shin
