From time to time I make appearances for lectures, workshops, book signings and interviews. We share the dates, locations and information about these events on the Appearance page here on Springwolf Reflections.

~ 10/28/2014 On Talk Story With Cindy Paulos ~
My dear friend Rev. Cindy Paulos invited me to join her show “Talk Story” on KAOI in Maui Hawaii. We shared a few moments to discuss how the Pagan holiday of Samhain is practiced, what it represents and how it inspired the Christian holiday of All Hallows Eve, also known as Halloween. Along with a little about What Is Paganism.   The segment is about 11 minutes long and you can listen to it through the audio player below.

KAOI Radio Group on the island of Maui provides several innovated radio stations to Hawaii. From great music to NewsTalk and original Community Views programing. Continue reading

Sympathies and Prayers for Oak Creek, Wisconsin

The Alpha's

The Gift of Compassion

Everyone at Spring’s Haven wish to express our deepest sympathies, prayers and thoughts for the family, friends and community of the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.

This world is large enough to accommodate all beliefs and to share our knowledge, wisdom and understanding in peace. We can allow others to believe as they choose without threatening our own spiritual path or compromising our own enlightenment.

Hate and intolerance have no place in our society or our country! This senseless violence harms everyone not only here in the U.S., but all souls around the world. By remaining silent when crimes of hate occur, one condones the act. By standing up and denouncing the hate out of tolerance and expressing compassion for the victimized we elevate the standards of morality and eliminate the screams of arrogance and overbearing dictatorship either formal or informal.

As my friend Rev. John E. Lewis Jr. said today:
Undermining the religious, political, moral or philosophical views of others in favor of elevating the religious, political, moral or philosophical views of self is arrogant, pathologically absurd and ultimately self-defeating. These dangerous tactics are on the increase by certain individuals and groups who actually believe they will convince others of their conceived supreme position. It may appear to be effective in the short-run, but in the long-run it will fail miserably, and in the process demean the common decency and civility of collective society. Never can any individual or group ultimately succeed by discrediting others in favor of self.

Our our hearts and prayers go out to everyone affected.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Justice – Inverted

Justice - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Injustice resides behind the curtain, but you have the ability to balance the scales and lift it out of its bondage. Going with the flow can sometimes condone the actions of others that harm or become hurtful. Speak out against injustice and condemn those who support its measures. Unverified rumors, slander, bigotry, hate and intolerance grow and survive when others remain silent and allow their energy to infect others. Speak up and condemn the words of hate. Only then can the world begin to change for the better. Even if it’s just your small part of the world.


Additional Insight:

Inappropriate comments will continue and fester injustice when they go unchallenged and ignored. Whither it’s the guys at work making sexist comments, or the relative who discriminates against gays, Muslims or some other group, don’t let their ignorant hate go without challenge.

As long as people think others around them support their negativity they will continue to spread their bigotry, rumor and lies. Silence against those words gives the appearance of agreement and support. And even the littlest comments can take on energy and snowball into something much bigger and more harmful than one can imagine. Speak up, stand up for the “little” guy and stop the propagation of intolerance in your world.
