Rampage of Invincibility

I don't usually watch videos online that much, but this one just has to be shared. My thanks to the women on the RU-LOA list for passing it along and raving about it so that I actually went and clicked on the link this time.

Wow. I can feel the amazing energy coming through, even at the distance of a recorded video. I highly recommend taking the 7 minutes it will take to watch this...and feel the results.

Sometimes things happen in fours. Even if they're lists of things that I've encountered while reading. Such as:

"Each read-aloud, then, is a language arts lesson, bolstering the four language arts: the art of reading, the art of listening, the art of writing, and the art of speaking."
- Jim Trelease, "The Read-Aloud Handbook"

"The beginner [witch] must develop four basic abilities: relaxation, concentration, visualization, and projection."
- Starhawk, "The Spiral Dance"

The four powers of a magickian:
To know, to will, to dare, to keep silent.

OK, to add a personal touch, four things I'm doing today:
making salsa, finishing a mix CD for a friend, yoga (duh), and cleaning

Hope your day is full of fabulous fours.

Education for the Soul

"Avoid compulsion and let early education be a manner of amusement. Young children learn by games; compulsory education cannot remain in the soul." - Plato

The X-Cats

New Goals

I've been doing some introspection and re-membering, and I realized I hadn't written about my goals for this year (2009). I did this last year (click here to see the 2008 post) and found it useful. In fact, I just went back and commented on how I did on each of them.

So, here are the things I am focused on this year:

1. Writing. This is the year to become a published author. The vegan pagan cookbook is finished, as far as content goes, and will be sent out to prospective publishers soon. BlackLion and I will be publishing our core belief kit this spring, and we also plan to finish The Book of Ing. More to come!

2. Yoga. I will continue to focus on and refine my daily yoga practice. I will include more meditation as well. I'd like to try new types of meditation, and attend more yoga workshops and retreats.

3. Drumming. I will practice my drumming regularly, and perhaps take some lessons. I plan to play more gigs as well as play for friends and family.

4. Art. I am going to explore my creativity through various arts. One that I really enjoy is collage. I'd like to try some new forms, too.

5. I'm not sure what to call this one, though it encompasses love, joy and gratitude. I will tune in to the sacredness of everything. I am further exploring my spirituality, and having fun doing so. I will ENJOY life!
