I'm off to bed to see if my dreams can bring me any ideas for the blessing for my BOS. I tried many things, including sitting in my garden to meditate, but my dog (Muttley) jumped all over me and wanted to play lol. It's been a very long, but lovely, day, and my brain is now overtired and may melt from over-thinking lol.
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions to help me, please let me know. I will be incredibly grateful!

this is a translation of a dutch poem i wrote many many years ago.
this is a poem I wrote a long while back, willow has translated it in english (which I am very happy about)
Held tightly in this life
Without belief in myself
To grab the breath of life,
I walk through the gate of life.
Every piece of life…
Shapes me to the person I am…
Why can’t I give my all…?
Isn’t it still myself I know…
I just found this poem on a website whilst looking for inspiration for a blessing I want to write for my BOS. I love it!
Butt Prints In The Sand
One night I had a wondrous dream,
One set of footprints there was seen,
The footprints of the Goddess they were,
But mine were not along the shore.
But then some stranger prints appeared,
and I asked Her, "What have we here?
These prints are large and round and neat,
But much too big to…Continue

why do ppl think they can change history if they can't even change their story????
oh well i studied a bit of manipulation of elements it takes more energy than thinking the whole day so if you want transform space you have a lot of meditation to do and not just 24/7 you have to accumulate energy for months to perform such a simple task
or you just hire a competent interior designer...they can transform the space very well
i'm one too…
As readers of my main blog may recall, I attended a presentation by Mark W. Schaefer a few weeks back and talked about it (and did pictures!), I also got a chance to chat with him as a TweetUp the next day, and decided that I'd reach out to McGraw Hill for a review copy of his new book…Continue

Witness the glory of the morning
the Sun, that old chariot of skyfire
rises much the same as he always has
His steeds have been bridled and with a crack of the riding crop,
lingering shadows melt away and day begins anew:
Eternity in microcosm
and yet the winds, like restless children, have have not slept
they pass over the grasses of the valley
bearing whispers from afar
the auburn stalks sigh knowingly in the breeze
They are one with…

Christianity: "Everything that feels good is selfish. Stop that or you'll never get into heaven."
Judaism: "Eventually we'll reach heaven, but meanwhile we're here. Things feel good here, but theres a time and a place."
Buddhism: "Everything you love is keeping you from heaven"
The path to oblivion (heaven, nirvana, eternal communion w/ your deity) typically followed by mainstream religion is Asceticism, or denial of physical desires for the sake…Continue

In this quiet place, this zealots temple
I give myself unto the flames
Searching for the muted echos
of what I could or might have been
Tracing all streams to their…Continue

Why are there no good DVDs out there on the Wiccan or even Pagan religions? I cannot seem to find anything. If anyone has information on such, please let me know.

My name is really Bert, well Elbert, but I go by Bert, or email@example.com or yahoo.com and tons of others lol. Extended about me right here I guess since I seem in the writing mood, so here goes.
Past me often went like this:
I should not tamper with the sovereignty of societies standards, instead hang your head and spend your days mulling to those, for they are there for a reason. Following them is expected and good. To deny society its place is to lose hope of being happy…

Are you constantly bombarded by thoughts of negativity? Plagued by feelings of insecurity? Do you see everything in a negative manner? The reason for this lies deep within your heart. You are what you mentally and spiritually eat. If a person drinks alcohol on a daily basis, odds are their body will be affected in some way. They may have liver issues, develop…Continue

U.S. Court decisions:
Some court decisions which have recognized Wicca are:
An important ruling of a state Supreme Court was in Georgia: Roberts v. Ravenwood Church of Wicca, (249 Ga. 348) in 1982. It was similar to Dettmer v Landon, below.
The District Court of Virginia declared in 1985 (Dettmer v Landon, 617 F Suup 592 [E. Dst. Va.]) that Wicca is "clearly a religion for First Amendment purposes....Members of the Church sincerely adhere to a fairly complex set…

so we had some slightly but not really wilted flowers in our house
and my mom asked me to get rid of them
normally we'd throw them away
but that just felt WRONG
so i took them outside and put them on top of a stump some woodpeckers made their home in
and i found out tonight most pagans are honering lithe
which is a goddess of midsummer
which is tomorrow
and its creepy cause when i put the flowers down, in my heart it felt like an offering
