So, work as been getting in the way of sharing my path with you.
Sometimes I drop work and feel so tired that I just want to go to bed and forget about the world.
Yesterday, I read a post by John Beckett, on Patheos that was both inspiring and a wake up call. It contained a message about something I have been chewing on for a while, and working internally, and it made so much sense to me!
John Beckett’s blog entry, 6 Benefits of Perseverance, addressed this issue in a crystal clear manner.
And he is completely right: If we give up on what we want before getting there, we will never get where we want to be.
I do my best to, at least, meditate on a daily basis. But I do need to better organise myself and how I spend my off-work time.
I do want to keep going through my path, I want to develop further my abilities, develop a deeper contact with the Gods and Goddesses (for which I need to learn further about).
I want to be more involved in the Pagan community, even if it only by sharing my thoughts with you for the time being.
I want to be more involved in protecting the Earth. The good part is that I am handling the Social and Environmental Responsability area of the company I work for, so I am trying to create a environmental conscience there. 😉
So I will do my best to post a new entry at least 1 to 2 times a week, even if only to say “Hello my friends! I am still here, thinking about you!”
I do want to share a few news with you.
In Portugal, it is now Autumn, and from now until February 2016, will be the best time to plant trees. Thus, I decided to give it a try, and try to develop my green thumb (which I wish to improve), and I am now trying to grow a pear tree and an apple tree. ^_^
I will see about changing them to someplace else once they grow. Perhaps, I will contact OBOD so as to start a new sacred grove, once the time comes.
I also changed my Altar.
The previous one (from Samhuinn) had an apple on the back. As I used the apple for my apple tree to be, I added chestnuts to my Altar.
I still feel that something is missing, that it’s lacking something. Black feathers keep showing up on my mind’s eye. But Ravens and The Morrígan have been on my mind quite often for over a month, now.
This also makes me feel that I must learn further in regards to The Morrígan, to understand this closeness I feel.
Though I have been a Pagan for so long, I still feel like a rookie about this. It is the first time I feel drawn to the Gods/Goddesses, so this is a brand new territory for me.
Before, I worshiped Nature in general, the Moon and the Sun, the Earth, trees, shrubs and flowers, animals, rivers and the sea… You name it.
But I will keep you posted – I will let you know how it goes. 😉
In the peace of the woods.
