It is the beginning of November and we are getting closer to the Holiday time.
wanted to remind you that while you are getting things together for
yourself and family for Thanksgiving and such, make an extra effort to
help others at this time.
This is a great time in the
year to be of service, to do some volunteer work, and to do something
that helps the whole (especially if you don't make time during the rest
of the year).
During the holidays, there are lots of people in our country that could use our assistance.
Give in whatever ways you can and give with an open heart.
You can make a big difference.
1. give money to a great organization
2. give time or volunteer
3. give toys to children drives
4. clean out your closets and donate clothes and other gooods
5. donate food or canned goods to food drives
6. give your warm, mildly used coats to a coat drive
We're all living on Anthropocene Standardly Strange Time (AS2T). But our calendars don't get that.
We (smudge/FOP) want to create a contemporary calendar. A calendar that tells meaningful stories about the time changes happening all around us. A deep time calendar that provides relief and wonder for everyday life in the Anthropocene.
If our campaign for Living Deep Time Year 000001 succeeds, we will spend the 362.2425 days of 002016 researching and inventing ways to live time on our planet differently—ways that are up to the radical newness of what time means in the Anthropocene.
And then, we'll use what we experience and learn to make a new calendar called Deep Time Calendar Year 000001. We'll share it with YOU (and the rest of the world) on Kickstarter in late 002016.
We have some great rewards for our backers, including original works of art, interactive mail art field dispatches from year-long our process, and complimentary copies of calendar that results from our project.
Our deepest thanks in advance for sharing the tweet and announcement of our project as you're able! And we hope that you will take a moment of Anthropocene Standardly Strange Time to check out our campaign!

I want to offer appreciation for an amazing person who came into my life when I was just beginning on my spiritual path in my earlier years, Stan Grier. Stan has affected many people while on the planet in this lifetime.
I met him while volunteering at New York Open Center. Many worked with him at Lineage Project. He brought his practice with him everyday. He was an outstanding man of color who projected dignity and self-care. He introduced me to so many great spiritual tools that still serve me today.
He was kind, considerate, talented and passionate.
Thank you, Stan, for all the ways that you enriched my life.
It is the time of the Death mother, The Dark Mother, The Shaman, The Priestess, The Handmaiden of The Goddess
Happy Samhain to all my Goddess worshippers, nature worshippers, priests, priestesses,
shamans, witches, wizards, pagans, wiccans, and magical folks!
Honoring The Day of The Dead.......I want to also offer gratitude to all the ancestors who have come before me during this time of The Day of The Dead. Thank you for all your contributions, love, light, encouragement, vision, and dedication. We would not be here without you.
In light and love,
This turn of the wheel is a time of
celebration and honoring, of preparing and listening. All Hallows Eve
welcomes in the gateway to the dark time of the year. We celebrate
Summer's End, the harvest, the life we are living and the roads we
travel. We dance the spiral of death and rebirth by honoring our
ancestors both of blood and spirit, ever seeing ourselves in the great
web of unending LIFE...
Listening for allied voices that speak from the universal womb of silence.
"Through the misty veils of Samhain comes the ancient wisdom of Hecate..."
Hecate, Moon Goddess, Queen of the Night...you see what others do
not see. You know what the rest of us do not consciously know. Familiar
with the process of death and dying as well as that of new birth and new
life, goddess Hecate, you are wise in all of earth's mysteries.
Lover of solitude, wanderer of the Underworld, crone of the
crossroads, we seek your luminous will-o-wisp light. With torch and
shimmering cloak, guide us into the shadows and ease our fears as we
make transitions and prepare for new beginnings, especially ones that
were not planned.
Life, death, light, dark, joy, sorrow...bring us closer to your breast, Hecate, Wise Woman. We stand at Samhain's crossroads, a potent
season of remembrance. Remembrance of our lineages, our blood-line and
spirit ancestors. Remembrance of our spiritual selves and our capacity
Samhain opens the spiral
pathway. As the veils thin, we dance cheek-to-cheek, intimately and
infinitely, with the cycle of death and re-birth.
The breath is a spiral.
Feel into the regenerative spiraling energy as it moves in and out on
each breath. Exhale...drop anchor...expand and REMEMBER...
Getting Prepared For Samhain, The Time of The Death Mother

autumnal equinox occurs when the sun crosses the equator on its
apparent journey southward, and we experience a day and a night that are
of equal duration. Up until Mabon, the hours of daylight have been
greater than the hours from dusk to dawn. But from now on, the reverse
marks the middle of harvest, and for the moment nature is in balance.
It is a time to reap what you have sown, of giving thanks for the
harvest and the bounty the Earth provides. For finishing up old projects
and plans and planting the seeds for new enterprises or a change in
lifestyle. Mabon is a time of celebration and balance.
This is the time to
look back not just on the past year, but also your life, and to plan
for the future. In the rhythm of the year, Mabon is a time of rest and
celebration, after the hard work of gathering the crops. Warm autumn
days are followed by chill nights, as the Old Sun God returns to the
embrace of the Goddess.
It is a great thing when someone comes to the planet, makes such a difference and leaves such a huge impression. Wayne Dyer was an amazing being who has affected so many people. His work has been a great tool in my life. I offer appreciation for his time on the planet and for all that he contributed to our human race.

Your beauty is an awe
inspiring, breathtaking miracle. The light that exudes from you ~ the
iridescent light of who you actually ARE~ inside of that vessel...you are BEAUTY-FILLED.
I see beyond the beyond. I
can touch into the places you hold most secret. The intimate, shy,
ravenous, beautiful places ~ the ones that you think can't be seen from
the outside. I see, feel, touch, taste all of you. That is why you fear
me. I know it sounds strange to speak of fearing LOVE, especially the
Goddess of Love, but in truth it is my naked, vulnerable, wide-eyes-open
love that you find yourself shielding yourself from.
Beloved one...breathe with me
as I come closer to sit by your side. Such love is hard to accept and
receive isn't it? That I can see you that clearly ~ with all of
your perceptions of your imperfections ~ that's what we try to hide
under the clothes, the make-up, the artifice...we try to hide the very
things that our beauty is consumed with.
You see, my love, it is your imperfections, your human-ness, the places that you don't want me to see... these are the places that I love most in you.
These are the places that are unfinished, raw, undone, taken a part,
wobbly. They are places that you have been taught are not allowed. They
need to be hidden from sight. And yet in my temple in the heart, it is
these places, these fragile-oh-so-tender places, that I adore.
I love you exactly as you are right now.
is nothing to fix, or change, or perfect. I love all of you--the light
and shadow. I see the beauty in all of it. It is the light and shadow
that gives you the beautiful form that you are. It is the dance of the
light and shadow that gives your dance grace and humility. It is the light and shadow that draw me closer to your heart.
want to hear of all the places that you would hide from me. I want to
touch you with my gaze of love. I can be as gentle as a feather on your
cheek, and I can transmute all with love.
I love your shadow as I love your light.
Choosing to enter my temple is to choose to enter into the undefended heart.
It is a choice to love into wholeness now all places that you have been
separate ~ all places that you have judged, compared or reviled.
Now is the time to let me seep inside of you as a golden pink gold nectar of bliss.
I am in love with you.
know that is intimate to say. And it is the truth...for I am the
frequency of divine intoxication. I am mad drunk on love...I am the
power of unfettered love within you. I am the power of love to heal all
the hidden shadowy places. I am HER within you ... soften and open and let me flood in.
As you receive me, sit quietly my love. Breathe me in. Let me intoxicate you with my love. Intimacy is my gift to you.
I see your beauty essence. I see your light that radiates. I invite you
to offer this light, this radiance, this brilliance out into the world.
I ask you to become an invitation for love--to all those whom you might
meet...strangers, lovers, children, butterflies.
Can you dare to meet them with the eyes of love? And share in a moment of naked--yes, naked!--LOVE? And feel the tender rush of opening, as the separation between us disappears in a shy and delicious moment of REAL BEAUTY.
I went to the SF Center for spiritual living for their Sunday service and it was so great. I love those centers. I have been to many and I love the philosophy.
The minister was hilarious and shared a story about rage, a homeless man, personal space, and seeing people for their divine self. It was interesting and inspiring.
I love that about life, how we can take some difficult, harsh, painful, or uncomfortable experience and make it amazing, a healing, an inspirational tale, or change it to an empowering experience for ourselves and others. We define ourselves and have the power to change our own story! Life is kind and loving like that!
Thanks to all you great teachers out there for sharing your tales with the world and allowing us to benefit from your life experiences.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is
that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness
that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a
child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is
nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel
insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were
born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just
in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we
unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are
liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates

The buddhist walks up to the hot dog vendor and tells him to "make me one with everything."

change?" The vendor smiles and says, "Ahh, change must come from

Wake up, beautiful one!
Open your sleepy eyes. Rise! Turn your face toward the warmth of
summer's new dawn. The sky is brightening in the east ~ pink-yellow
light fills the horizon as the doves and wild geese take to the skies.
The cattle have been released to the wild green pastures, having run
through the cleansing flames of the Beltane fires last night, blessing
and purifying their bodies from winter's confinement. So, too, have our
fertile souls been released from the grip of illusion.
Rise now, from the heat of Kali's fierce love,
which has stripped away untruths and liberated our energy ~ we are READY
NOW to harness the endless potential of the revitalized landscape of
Open, receptive, and free ... this day, we can feel the solar King's promise of the abundance that is to come!
inner renewal sprouts forth, fragrant with possibilities and garlanded
with the beauty of choice. No longer limited by what was, we have the
power to catalyze what can be."

Beltane season is upon us. As we enter the Light Half of the Year and
the sun increases its presence in our lives, let us, too, open our
hearts to the life-giving blessings of fire. Spend time in the outdoors.
Get outside and let the sun renew your physical energy. Notice the
fertility and growth of nature! As the animals and plants increase their
activity, may you, too, feel the frenzy of creativity and spiritual
energy rise in you!
I breathe in the fire of the sun!
This world is alive, and I am alive with it!
The fire in my heart is a Beltane fire,
A fire raging with passion and purpose!
Today I honor the sun,
And the movement of the earth.
The Earth Mother provides,
And the Sky Father encourages
New life on the land.
This is the moment to remember
I am a living being, interconnected with all life.
I am the tree. I am the river.
I am of the earth, growing into fullness,
Hail, the fire of Beltane!
in this season of growing strength, of passion and of the fertility of
the approaching summer, it is time to seek new inspiration! How will you
tend the fire in your own heart? The fire that inspires your work and
your creative life?
We, like the Earth, are passing through a luminal gateway to enter into a new phase of existence. If
you've been wanting to bring abundance and new growth of any sort into
your life ~ whether you're looking to conceive a child, enjoy
fruitfulness in your career or creative endeavors, or just see your
garden bloom ~ Beltane is the perfect time for intentional ritual and
focus related to any type of prosperity.
May you be cleansed and revitalized this day, dear one! Wash the ash of the Beltane fires away with the purifying dew of this new day.
Your heart is free, beloved! Free to roam the hills to find the greenest shoots of tender new grass.
Rise! Rise! Feel Love rising in you! Make Love with All of Life. YOU ARE SO DEEPLY LOVED!
May the coming summer months be fruitful and fertile!
