M. Scott Peck Quote…from The Road Less Traveled

“Life is complex.
Each one of us must make his own path through life. There are no self-help manuals, no formulas, no easy answers. The right road for one is the wrong road for another…The journey of life is not paved in blacktop; it is not brightly lit, and it has no road signs. It is a rocky path through the wilderness. ”
― M. Scott Peck

The Road Not Taken…by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

St. Nino de Atocha

In the 13th century, Spain was under Muslims rule.  The town of Atocha, a now-lost district nearby  Madrid was lost to the Muslims and many Christians there were taken prisoners as spoils of war. The Christians were placed on strict punishments and prohibitions, and the devout prisoners were denied food by their captors. According to legend, only children under the age of 12 were permitted to bring them food. The women of Atocha knew that most of the people in the prison, mostly their relatives and friends could not truly survive under such harsh conditions. As a result, the women prayed before the statue of Our Lady of Atocha at a nearby parish, a title under the Blessed Virgin Mary to ask her son Jesus Christ for aid and help.

Reports soon began among the people of Atocha that a child under the age of twelve had begun to bring food to childless prisoners. The child was dressed in pilgrim’s clothing yet could not be identified as to the name of the child or its origins.

When the women of Atocha heard of the child, they returned to Our Lady of Atocha and thanked the Virgin for her intercession. Looking upon the image of the Virgin, they noticed that the shoes worn by the Infant Jesus statue held by Our Lady of Atocha were tattered and dusty. Customarily, the shoes of the child Jesus were constantly replaced but were soiled once again. The people of Atocha interpreted this as a sign that the infant Jesus went out every night to help those in need which later developed into a devotional Roman Catholic practice.

Walt Whitman – …

Walt Whitman – “Understand that you can have in your writing no qualities which you do not honestly entertain in yourself. Understand that you cannot keep out of your writing the indication of the evil or shallowness you entertain in yourself. If you love to have a servant stand behind your chair at dinner, it will appear in your writing- or if you possess vile opinion of women or if you grudge anything, or doubt immortality- these will appear by what you leave unsaid more than by what you say. There is no trick or cunning, no art or recipe, by which you can have in your writing what you do not possess in yourself.” ~ Walt Whitman (journal entry 1855 – 1856)

The Secrets of Mary Magdalene

Will the church now except Mary Magdalene’s Gnostics teachings and allow her presence, the divine feminine to balance our world view of Christianity?

My Sweet Valentine…

Dear God, please help me heal From grief, loss and the pain of love gone wrong. Let me leave deep heartache in my past. And be whole and happy again.  In my fear of never finding true love, I have been needy and overly-anxious, Desperate and too willing to settle. Please calm the need in me that leads to unwise choices. Fill the emptiness in my heart that makes me crave unhealthy love. Restore my faith in love and relationships And grant me the ability to love myself fully. And to feel lovable and wanted from within. Let the healing process begin inside my heart.

Great Spirit, Watch over us…

 

May the Sun bring you new energy by day,

May the Moon softly restore you by night,

May the Rain wash away your worries,

May the Breeze blow new strength into

Your Being,

May you walk through the World

and know it’s Beauty 

All the days of your life.
