What you’re searching for is already in your hands. Stop allowing the stress and strife to blind your view and keep you from seeing it. Anger and frustration only create blinders that cause you to focus your attention on the wrong things. Let it go, and see what you already have at your finger tips.
Be careful you don’t look at the world around you with glasses of frustration. Just like rose colored glasses, overwhelming frustrations can cause you to warp your view of all things around you. You’re wasting so much looking for the answers in something; or someone; else when the answer is already right in front of you.
Let go and let the Divine guide your path and your view back on course where you implement your desires and enjoy what you already have.

If you’re going to put your Pagan hat on and wear it in public, you’re going to get negative comments from time to time. I’m used to this. But it is disheartening to know that this kind of immediate bigotry toward pagan perspectives can occur on a forum that’s designed for spiritual ministers and specifically fellow ministers in the same organization. To me, it’s a bit hypocritical. Continue reading →
