Gratitude And Appreciation

These two words are often used interchangeably, which is unfortunate. To know them in their fullness we must distinguish their proper usage.

Gratitude is the feeling we have for those who bring Beauty to our Life, who give of their Time and their other resources, those things material and impalpable, sharing with us that which we would not otherwise have.

Appreciation is the feeling we have for the gifts we receive and experience during our Lives.

Gratitude is for the giver, appreciation is for the gift. Either way, we should be energetic in our expression of and for both.

Tools

Pens, gavels, money, and guns are tools. In and of themselves they are inanimate and unmoving. Each of these things are presumed by many to be objects of power. They are not. Power is a Living Thing and it is an expression of what it is to be a human being experiencing Life here on the Mother Earth; it comes from within us and can never reside in a mere tool.

How sad it is to not know one’s own power.

Many who do not know or fully appreciate their power will brandish such tools recklessly or with malice aforethought in a misguided attempt to control others or to compensate for the power they recognize, either consciously or unconsciously, to be lacking within themselves. It is far more difficult to be the master of oneself than it is to lord over and dominate another. The pages of human history are stained with the bloody ink of despots and fools who could not master themselves. There is no greater challenge than that of Self-mastery.

Claim your power and use your tools wisely.

Advance Through Retreat

What is it that entices us to withdraw from the workaday world, often traveling great distances and usually at no small expense, depleting precious accrued vacation time so that we might come together with others of like mind to challenge our bodies, emotions, minds, and spirits for days on end?  What is the persistent and undeniable pull of gatherings, workshops, seminars, retreats, intensives, however you choose to class them, those events that call together folks from disparate backgrounds to share both Space and Time with one another in a sacred manner?

We gather because these special Times spent in these special Places and experienced with each other are important.

Scholarship.  Rejuvenation.  Healing.  Ceremony.  Each of these vital elements are regularly present and serve to nurture and nourish us in ways that usually far exceed the mere sum of their parts.  When we come together, we typically feel better when we depart than we did when we arrived.  This is Enchantment!

Then there is Family.  It is in our DNA to want to be with our Tribe.  We want the reassurance that there are others out there like us, those who share similar desires and struggles, hopes and dreams.  We seek the comfort found in the shared experience, in knowing that we are not in this world alone.

An aphorism heard regularly in the military and law enforcement communities says, “We do not rise to the occasion; we sink to the level of our training.”  Our shared Ceremonial Times are opportunities to increase in knowledge and glean the wisdom of teachings and teachers of the Past, and to condition ourselves to better understand the nature of the Real.  Our Coming Together is a training in its truest sense: we are shown tools and taught tactics that can help us to better know the joys of a Life worth Living.  What we learn is preparation for how to more fully savor and navigate through Times both good and bad.

Repeated exposure to the magic of Metaphysics and the metaphysics of Magic can broaden horizons touch hearts.  Individual attainment in a group environment has a character and flavor all its own.

And even in the challenges, our shared moments usually make us smile…

Reclaiming Eden – A Ceremonial Intensive

PARADISE. NIRVANA. EDEN.

Across cultures and across traditions there exists the persistent mythological archetype of the utopian ideal, a place from which humanity unwillingly or unwittingly emerged and to which humanity hopes one day to return.

Eden, however, has never been a physical place; it is a state of existence. Eden can be found within the deepest recesses of our True Nature. Eden abides within the Transcendent Self and is accessible to everyone.
