“Assuredly there is no more lovely worship of God than
that for which no image is required, but which springs up
in our breast spontaneously when nature speaks to the soul,
and the soul speaks to nature face to face.”

~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Breath flows Into this body….

Breath flows
Into this body
As a nectar of the gods.

Every breath is a whisper
Of the Goddess:
“Here is the ritual I ask of you —
Be the cup
Into which I pour this bliss,
The elixir of immortal peace.”

~Radiance Sutras, Insight Verse 155, Lorin Roche

Song for Autumn

42349682_1784745324908042_4824365742294040576_n

 

 

 

In the deep fall
don’t you imagine the leaves think how
comfortable it will be to touch
the earth instead of the
nothingness of air and the endless
freshets of wind? And don’t you think
the trees themselves, especially those with mossy,
warm caves, begin to think
of the birds that will come — six, a dozen — to sleep
inside their bodies? And don’t you hear
the goldenrod whispering goodbye,
the everlasting being crowned with the first
tuffets of snow? The pond
vanishes, and the white field over which
the fox runs so quickly brings out
its blue shadows. And the wind pumps its
bellows. And at evening especially,
the piled firewood shifts a little,
longing to be on its way.

~ Mary Oliver

High recognitions . . .How could human beings forget the beings of nature?

42150647_2145572352377527_1130137119713394688_o

 

 

“How could human beings forget the beings of nature as long as they live on
Earth? Every tree, every mountain, every river, every stem and every flower
ought to remind them of this!…
No, knowledge about elemental beings can never be extinguished!
Every breath of wind, every ray from the sun, and each drop of rain give
testimony of their tireless activity!”

– Roselis von Sass (The Great Pyramid Reveals its Secret)
The author draws inspiration from “The Grail Message” (In The Light of Truth) by Abd-ru-shin

Good morning with . . . . The Rose Hip Fairy

42126766_1077970575714343_8104855865988743168_n

 

 

The Rose Hip Fairy

Cool dewy morning,
Blue sky at noon,
White mist at evening,
And large yellow moon;

Blackberries juicy
For staining of lips;
And scarlet, O scarlet
The Wild Rose Hips!

Gay as a gipsy
All Autumn long,
Here on the hedge-top
This is my song.

By Mary Cicely Barker

Happy Autumn Equinox!!!!

The wheel of Year is turning and bringing us the Autumn Equinox,
the last gateway before wintertime. It is a wonderful time to pause
and bring our awareness to a natural rhythm of Light and Darkness.
Celebrate this time in communities, family gatherings and by creating
your own ceremonies of appreciation. Enjoy and give thanks to the harvests
and abundance of this time of the year. Gradually start to prepare for longer
winter nights by focusing on your own internal light that will help you
to be in harmony with the natural world.

The… harp which is a symbol of love in the form of lyrical art,
poetry and music. The Harp shares mythical connections to the Celts
representing the bridge of love connecting heaven and earth.

In Norway and Iceland, Harp strings formed a ladder symbolizing the
ascent to higher states of love leading to paradise.
