Making Connections

So, Im still working on making connections for my website; which venues to use and how to best be able to connect with people who want to chat, take classes and buy my art. I dont know why technology seems to offer so many venues and yet be so hard to decipher as to which ones would work best. That’s me, a techno-phobe with good intentions. LOL At least I know my weaknesses and am not afraid to laugh at them.

Im trying my best to set up networks that will help me stay connected with you, my dear readers. We live in a temporal plane and time is what connects and separates us.

People of pre-historic times stayed connected to the cycles of life by keeping track of the cycles of the moon. Modern Pagans celebrate the ‘turning of the wheel of the year’ every six weeks~ with holidays based on the solstices, equinoxes and mid-points in between~ as well as moon cycles. The old church calendar had special names for each Sunday of the year. It was this way that people stayed aware of the cycles in life, as a macrocosm, much as the daily and weekly cycles mark our time today.

Things change incrementally and changes appear small, but over time, those small changes add up to larger developments  in our lives. If we can learn to appreciate that we are making the best choices, with the information that we have, moment to moment, then we can appreciate the larger changes that come over time. By living intentionally, with self-discipline of a regular spiritual practice (whatever it may be) we create milestones that mark the paths of our lives. This is how we can create a life that best serves our needs and adds to the collective good. This is how we connect our Selves to our lives.

When we spend time every day connecting with the Earth, and ourselves as parts of the whole, it keeps us ‘on track’ as to our place in time, and out of time, as eternal beings. I find a few moments a day to connect with the universe by going outside in the evening and standing in the grass, as I watch the clouds scramble past the moon in its phases. I contemplate where I stand in all my relationships and how I might take steps the next day, to move forward and add value to others’ lives through kindness and compassion. Its in this prayerful connection to the whole that I connect to the deepest part of my self and to each of you – and all that is.

May you also find peace in all your connections. Namaste’
