What Fills Your Life?

The Important Things In Life

The Important Things In Life

A Story Worth Sharing

My brother-in-law shared this story with us. It’s worth thinking about for everyone. The story has been making the rounds on the internet since at least 2000, but the message is timeless.

When it started making the rounds around the internet, the message shared a cup of coffee with friends. Over the decade it has been altered here and there. Some improvements, other versions leave out some important parts of the story. And the cups of coffee have become two beers.

It’s hard to tell if the story is from a real professor or if it’s merely urban legend. I looked for information on Snopes.com, Wikipedia and a few other places, but no really seems to know the origins of the story. So take it for what it says as a good philosophical lesson about life.

A Well Taught Lesson About Life
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise
jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. Continue reading

Pagan Metaphysics 102 – Meditation, Energy and Action

The second book in the Pagan Metaphysics series is near completion!

Springwolf has been working on her second book for the past few months and will be sending it to her publisher in January 2013.

Book 102 discusses the Divine in a more practical sense of how the reader and the Divine are connected, how to practice ones beliefs on a daily basis and why this is important for any spiritual being. It covers topics concerning spirit guides, animal guides and animal spirit guides, along with the differences between ghost and spirit communications.

Each of these topics is followed up with a step by step process using meditation exercises to connect with guides, find ones spiritual sanctuary, and working with your guides to overcome trials and challenges in your life.

You can read an excerpt of the initial draft of Pagan Metaphysics 102 here on Springwolf Reflections.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knight of Cups

Knight Of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Keep a watchful eye over your playing field today. Don’t take action until you’re sure of what’s going on. Games are being played in different parts of the field and it will help you to stay above the fray and watch the movements before you try to engage those in the game.


Additional Insight:

Keep your advice to yourself. Apply it to your own play ground and let the others sort out their territory and turf for themselves. If you try to offer suggestions, you may find you’re giving your adversaries advice for taking over your play ground. So be careful you don’t give away what little you have.

Sometimes it’s much better to be a big fish in a little pond, than a little fish in someone else’s big pond. Be patient and take care of your own responsibilities. Your actions are being noticed. So don’t let others trick you into being a “team” player when you’re not even part of their team. They’re trying to manipulate you into the fight and use you as a pawn that can be easily sacrificed.

It might be hard to walk away. But you’re better off simply grabbing some popcorn and walking out of the arena and finding some quiet place to get your work done. If you’re a boss or a leader, you might make sure your team is focused on their work and not getting involved in the neighboring battle. Their actions maybe a reflection of your ability to manage your own playground.
