Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom. Charles Spurgeon
Courage is knowing what not to fear. Plato
Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment. Lao Tzu
Sitting in the garden with morning tea in hand ( today’s is peppermint to energize, give clarity ), we lift our face to the early morning Sun, Father Sol’s bright light. Morning Rising is the key to the start of a beautiful day. We have spoken our words out-loud to the universe of affirmations, of positive needs, desires, gratitude. Now we need to listen to the inner voices, the small still voice to share who we are to be today. We, here, have much education. Every year, we take online classes, to keep up, to learn, to know, so we are informed answers for others as well as ourselves, and yet unless we know our own truths, our own selves, our own path, we have quite a bit of head knowledge. We need the heart knowledge, as well. There is our answers, our connection to the gods is to know exactly who we are, what our path is in life. Each day a new inventory of our truths, our lives, our goals, our purpose. Ah, there it is. Our purpose. Do our dreams match our purpose? Wisdom is the knowledge of knowing, but knowing ourselves, gives us enlightenment, power.
Animal totems: Phoenix: Lady Phoenix is a mythological bird, yet she is included in the totems as we realize her importance. A follower of the Sun,Father sol, she is left for trash in the ashes, the dust of the her life, but as she rests in waiting, suddenly she bursts out into the light. Her totem is one of the hope, the faith that tomorrow is a better day. Her medicine is sharing our beauty in the light.
Lady Moon is Waning gibbous with the illumination of 62%. She lingers in Pisces the Fish, reminding us to be fluid, flowing, allowing the currents of the river of life to carry us into the great Sea. The 3rd house of communications goes into Pisces as well, the dreamy state where we will speak our dreams out-loud. My shaman card of the Mornings was Peace pipe – that petitions, prayers, listening ,communing with Great Spirit, gives us the inner peace we need.
