Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. Mahatma Gandhi
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. Dalai Lama
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude. Denis Waitley
Sweet dreams are made of this, who am I to disagree, I travel the world and seven seas – everyone’s looking for something – Anne Lynnox , David Steward
Dreams, hopes, the future. Every 3 months,or 3,000 miles whichever comes first, I get my oil changed in my car. My car recently went through inspection after 9 years without a glitch. Same value as the blue book says. So we prepare for our future to make sure that things go as smoothly as possible. We look for the dreams, the hopes, preparing each day for things that could come to be obstacles in the way of our dreams. Do I like to go to the garage to sit among the grease, the smells, the oils? No, I know I have things I would enjoy more. Yet, I also don’t like buying new cars. Sticking with the one I like, I’ve got, makes me happier. So there is a few stops in the garage, makes me happy compared to car shopping. Making decisions on how we want to walk the path to our dreams, yes, sometimes has some things, some times we don’t really want to do, or like, but happiness comes from knowing we handled the path the way we chose to handle it. Our dreams will come. Spirit gave us the dreams. The How we get there, happy or sad, glad or angry at the world, is our choice.
Animal totems: Octopus: Bro Octopus is another good choice for Samhain. His eight tentacles can grasp many different things at one time, so we can learn that we can achieve many different dreams with this totem. His totem reminds us that we can focus on more than one dream while moving gracefully through the rough waters. His medicine shares that we can feel our way through instinct knowing the impossible is possible.
Lady Moon is Waning Crescent moving toward the New Dark Moon on the 30th and Samhain/Halloween on the 31st. Today she enters into Libra the scales at 9:51 am est. this reminds us in romance stay balanced. The 4th house of self-esteem, values, principles is in Virgo, reminding us to stay true, innocent in our belief of dreams. Prepare for Samhain with caramel apples. Melt caramels in a double boiler top pot, put sticks in apples ,dip in the melted caramels. Let harden on wax papers.. if we like before hardening the caramel, dip also in nuts, or crushed candies, chocolate chips! Hmm. Apples is considered a love potion. If in love, cut an apple in half. Give one half to our love. If he/she eats it, he/she is our love forever. Then eat the other half ourselves.
