The Maintaining of the Soul Connection,

Good Friday

Thoughts, while pondering Good Friday ... reading the Bible and other writings about this day. Interesting, they call it Good Friday, the day the Christ was crucified.

2017 ~ Lunar New Year of the Rooster

 

2017 Fire Rooster Year
January 28, 2017 - February 15, 2018
 

It is the year of the Rooster!

The Rooster is the 10th of the 12 Chinese Zodiac Signs. This year it is a Fire Rooster (the 5 types of animals are Wood, Fire, Earth, Gold, & Water).

Humble & Kind

A few months ago I got a tip that there was a wonderful singer/songwriter named Lori McKenna that I might enjoy. I needed something musical & new so I bought her album "The Bird & the Rifle". Now she is a Nashville kind of gal, just to let you know. It is a wonderful piece of work, my wife & I both enjoy it. The other evening I listened closely to one of the songs on the album called "Humble & Kind". I think it the best folk/country song I have heard in a long, long time. It sings to me, there is hope, there is beauty in this world, but we got to work for it.

An Answer to the Fear, Hate, & Evil

This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely,
more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.

- Leonard Bernstein

Principle of Unanimity

Dear Friends,

I have never owned a gun. I do not condone or believe violence solves anything, except in the case of self-defense or the protection of others is involved. Yes, I would support a ban on assault rifles. But in this case and in reality in all cases, it is always the person firing the gun at innocent people that is the problem.

A Valentine's Day Wish

My Valentine wish for our world - May our lives be touched by Wise ~ Love, both in the giving & receiving of it. And may this serve us all, in connecting our Hearts & Minds now & forever.

It's that Holy time of year again, Lent.

 


Ah 'Lent - all' Soup, or,
We are all in this together!


 

Many in the world were baptized, touched with water, or perhaps oil, in a ritual to acknowledge our slick, wet entry into this world as part of the human family, which is of course a part of God's great family.

Festivals of Light

My soul is dressed with beams of light that I may serve as a beacon
to those in the shadows who are seeking vision and spirit.
By bringing Earth closer to heaven, we can all give birth to
the magnificence of our own being. Ours is a journey of
compassion and transformation, by breathing in the moment
we cultivate spiritual well-being and celebrate the miracle of life.

- Micheal Teal

Festivals of Light

Thinking about light in the world, that seems to be darkening. It is the time of Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights.

Sharing Now ~ Each & Every Day ~ Week of July 12 - 18

Earth Sharing

The primary duty of every individual, as a messenger of God,
is to practice and propagate the principles of truth, love, and peace
and to experience the bliss within and share it with others.

- Sathya Sai Baba

Sharing Now ~ Each & Every Day in Our World
What Goes Around Comes Around

The other day I observed the nice gentleman who helps me with the yard, coughing a lot. I took him out a throat lozenge that I have found very helpful. He thanked me. I noticed he stopped coughing right away.

The next thing I knew he was at my door asking what was that, it worked! I told him and gave him the rest of the package. He thanked me over and over and even did some extra work.

The 3 Great Spiritual Festivals as One - Week of May 24 - 30

Gemini Festival

At this full moon, there is a festival in the heavens. This occurs as the Gemini
full moon enters the white ether of the Milky Way. This is the place of reunion,
of true kinship, the place of cosmic consciousness.

- SouledOut.org, "Festival in the Heavens"

Gemini and the Goodwill Festival
The Human Kingdom and our spiritual aspiration
are uniquely linked to the fluid synthesis of Gemini.

We at SouledOut are delighted and empowered by the response to our writings and our meditations. We are, of course, driven ~ not the driver. We are greatly aided by your sharings online here on WeCycle Wisdom, and by the great group Spiritual alignments we sense, that in fact guide our service.
