Taking Care of What Matters

Anyone else worried about the negative Karma the US is creating lately?

It’s not looking good.

  • Puerto Rico still in dire need.
  • Sick people suffering in silence – without health care.
  • Wounded people from the Las Vegas massacre are in financial distress due to health care costs.
  • People traumatized by either natural or premeditated tragic events are in need of mental health care.
  • Homeless people.
  • Increasing numbers of white supremacists.
  • Unfair treatment of long term immigrants.
  • Unfair treatment of minorities.
  • The attempt to legislate religion.
  • Superficial patriotism.

 

The ONLY answer is to start taking care of what matters.

What matters?

People, and Mother Earth.

Take care of both, and everything else will fall into place.

How do we do it? It starts with love.

Love thy neighbor (and everyone is thy neighbor) as thyself.

This is the best Tweet I’ve seen today:

To flourish on the earth… we have to take care of it and each other.

The Worlds Lesson on Twitter

 

All the major religions speak the same… always treat others as you would want them to treat your children. Most of them say as you would want them to treat you, but as a parent, I am more moved when I think about how someone will treat one of my own. It carries more weight in my heart.

I am also partial to the Wiccan Rede, which is not included in the graphic above.

Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill, An it harm none do what ye will.

New Moon Spirit Dolls — The Journey of Design

I don’t know why I started designing these Spirit Dolls.  Maybe it was watching Lord Thorn quietly sew together a ritual robe for his friend by hand the other week.

“Why aren’t you using a sewing machine?” I asked.

He smiled.  “I don’t have one.  Besides, I find stitching it by hand more fulfilling.”

I thought about that.  There is a special kind of contemplative joy in working magick while stitching something by hand.  Too, the end product always seems to have more power.

Or, maybe it was because I wrote the article on conjuring bags and my mind simply stepped to the next level.  Or, perhaps a book I was looking at on found object art at the local crafting store sent the creative part of me whirling…whatever the reason…
