Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over. Octavia Butler
A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it. Jean de La Fontaine
And looking out to the future, I’m sure that I will see, a better time, a happier place, that I can come to be, the path I’m on, the door that opens free, allows me to move toward destiny. The universe gave to me. A dream, a goal, a path clearly , and so I’ll see, the answers properly to hope – deborahmills © 2016
Clearly he was part of my path, part of my destiny. The minute I saw D.. over in the corner playing a soft acoustic guitar, John Prine song, I heard the destiny, felt in my heart, the message, and I ran. As far, as long as I could run, away from destiny. Yet as the path often does, twists, turns, the spirit moved us together. As I felt, that first day, the path wasn’t easy. The love, the passion, the weak in the knees, oh yes, all continued, but the troubles, chaos also reigned. So one day, I walked to the Levy to sit, to meditate, to petition, the answers of my destiny. I heard clearly that my life purpose was to help heal, to help feed all the sheep sent my way. Then I heard even more clearly, this man, this love, is also part of the sheep. Ugh, of course, this was not what I wanted to hear. I wanted, sometimes needed to hear, I could easily walk away, I could quit, and yet no, I hear this is your path your destiny. Each person who comes into our lives is part of the path, part of the destiny. We have no real choice to quit life, quit the path. We can make it harder by avoiding the path, the destiny, but often on our path, we stay on the path, we just think we’ve gotten off!
Animal totems: Geese : 6 geese a-laying. Sister Goose is another symbol of the giving of the holidays. Her totem is beloved in many fairy tales, as a mother, a nurturer, a giver of life. Her totem can be a bit snippy at times, so her totem reminds us during stressful times, remain calm, quiet. Her medicine shares that we need to share life with others.
Lady Moon is the New dark moon today at 7:18 am est. the 4th house of values, principles is in Sagittarius. During New Moon rituals, ask for removal of negativity, as well as all things are possible. Light a white candle of purity, cleansing color to open wide the empty void of moon that both Worlds are seen. Ask for the fire, the sparks of light, of energy to open all possibilities. Honor Yule with limbs of evergreen pines or junipers.
I am here my usual hours today. May the fairies dance around each of us today. Love ya, Me Cherokee, Frankiecapone, Sugar, Apache, Apollo, T.
