Today’s topic is how one occupies oneself when sick at home. What does one do! but fortunately I don’t have to consider this topic as I have too much to consider at any time. My Oracle card told that I should consider simplicity as my theme and remove anything that was too heavy and constrictive. Well, that is what I have done and have spent my time editing, knitting and crocheting.
It leads me to think how we spend our lives. How do we plan our time and upon what pursuits. do we focus on.Do you just fill up time, so that your soul does not have respite, your spirit no time to calm down, or are you above reproach.
Sometimes I am pleased that I am not so busy as I used to be and thus I have been able to concentrate more of enjoyment and not writing up plans for workshop after workshop. So to return to the point my day, after waking up very late, has been minimal in terms of what I have achieve .
The next thought was to add meaning to our lives in terms of a belief system, a need to be at peace with ourselves.
Belief Systems can change over time, as we grow. Sometimes, it is wise to step out of a comfortable niche you have created for yourselves because a part of you is no longer there. I feel that I have done this many a time and now I simply listen to myself, and have returned more to nature and the beings that reside within in. In a sense I have returned to the past. I have completed a whole circle.
Within this circle The Great Mother in her many aspects – maiden, raging warrior, benevolent mother, death-dealing and all-wise crone – unknowable and ultimate wyrd – is nor powerfully reemerging and rising again in human consciousness. Isis, Demeter, Gaia, Shakti, Dakinis, Shekhinah, Astarte, Istar, Freya, Brigid, Danu- call her what you will has been with us from the beginning and awaits us now. So she is the beauty of the green earth, life-giving waters, the consuming fire, the radiant moon, and the fiery sun. She is Star Goddess and Spiderwoman, she weaves the luminouus web that creates the universe. She germinates life within her dark womb.
