Well I am working on some of the more mundane underpinnings of my self and spirituality and practice lately. Working on nutrition and healthier eating, once nutrition is reasonably in place I will be adding exercise. I am working on quitting or at least cutting way-the-heck-back on my cigar smoking. I am also working on making my mess of an apartment more of a home. Curtains have been bought, but not yet hung as that requires assistance from the Fabulous Jonathan, who has a drill that will let me hang the double curtain rod.
Real world basics. What T. Thorn Coyle calls Planes of Stability in her writings.
Rather Earth focused qualities to be focused on during the May-tide season, as I am calling Beltaine/May Day/Walpurgis Nacht… three different festivals whose cultural streams have flowed together into the Neo-Pagan Beltane. Then again given the themes of fertility May-tide could be seen as being as much an Earth festival as a Fire festival an Earth deals with matters (and matter) of stability and form.
Balance, balance, balance. Even as I work on the stable planes of health and home, among others, I am trying to remember to breathe, to Center, to Ground, to Pray to the Goddesses and Gods of my heart and hearth and home.
