We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us is something valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit. e. e. cummings
May I be I is the only prayer - not may I be great or good or beautiful or wise or strong. e.e. cummings
I count life just as stuff to try the soul’s strength on. Robert Browning
God does not ask about our ability, but our availability. Anon
The act of writing is the act of making soul, alchemy. Gloria Evangelina Anzaldua
The greatest human quest is to know what one must do in order to become a human being. Immanuel Kant
Know your human rights. Be what you came here for. Sting
What could be better than e.e. cummings (I've loved him since I first saw a quote of his), or Sting for that matter, to give us food for thought at this time of the year.
December's new Moon falls right on Christmas, on the evening of 24th December in the United States and on the 25th December in Australia.
The Sabian Symbol is a fabulous one and it's wonderful that Elsie Wheeler, the amazing spiritualist medium that gave birth to the Sabian Symbols in 1925, (remembering that she assigned the Sabian Symbols to degrees in a completely double blind 'experiment') gave the Symbol of Capricorn 3: The Human Soul, In Its Eagerness For New Experiences, Seeks Embodiment to the degree that most often falls on Christmas Day. This is so totally the Symbol of the story of Christ, but more importantly, it is a story for all of us that we are seeking our own embodiment. To be who we came here for (to paraphrase Sting). This is a fabulous degree of dropping into one's body, into one's spirit, into one's destiny and it reflects the Jesus story in many ways - he 'sought embodiment'.
