What if…? The universe is made of music & stories, not matter, or atoms.
What song will you sing today to bring the world into existence? What story will you tell?
hmmm…& what if we aren’t consciously creating the universe? What if we are just going along, living in someone else’s narrative? What happens if we habitually expose ourselves to toxic stories? What if a commercial jingle is our earworm?
Friends! We could wind up living in the wrong universe! – A world where we are just human animals; not spiritual beings having a human experience – A world where it’s impossible to become the purposeful genius we are all born to be.
No that’s crazy; we know that’s not true! So let’s wean ourselves off tell-tales that have a reductive plot line, fueled primarily by grotesque, negative scenarios.
More importantly, let’s celebrate the luminous mysteries that have shaped our life story: The meandering fascinations that don’t always lead to tidy conclusions, the wobbly joys that feed our soul, but don’t do a thing to serve the false ego’s ambitions. Let’s live into the adventure whose success revolves around brain-teasing breakthroughs, instead of exhausting confusion, caused by fear & illusion….
So how about it…? Let’s encourage each other to nourish ourselves with delicious, nutritious narratives & the glorious music of the spheres, which inspire us to exercise our willpower for the highest good of all.

Just downloaded: Invitation: Sophia Working – with Angela Foster, Hazel Archer Ginsberg and Deb Abrahams Dematte.
What is your relationship to The goddess of Wisdom – The Sophia? How can we cultivate this ‘living being,’ called Anthroposophia, to awaken our will, for the active participation in personal and world destiny? We share some of the synchronicities of our Journey; talk about the ‘Sophia Group’; this year’s Holy Nights, and the upcoming International Sophia Conference in 2022. To inform our breakout session we will call up quotes like: “The term ‘Anthroposophy’ should be understood as synonymous with ‘Sophia’…the conscious wisdom of one’s humanity.” The ‘New Isis Myth’ is offered by Hazel as a seed for our future work.

14 October 2020 – “Speaking with the Stars”: Today holds amazing solar system sights for both morning & evening observers. For those up before the Sun, you can spot the delicate crescent Moon joining with the planet Venus (occult Mercury) in the morning sky. Look East in the two hours before sunrise to glimpse the pair in the southern portion of Leo the Lion, southwest of Denebola which marks the tip of Leo’s tail. See if you can spot any earthshine on the lunar surface, which occurs when sunlight bounces off Earth & lights up the portion of the Moon in Earth’s shadow.
Lucky — & speedy — evening observers can catch Mercury (occult Venus) low in the western sky at sunset tonight as the Sun sinks below the horizon next to Virgo’s sheaf of wheat: Spica.
As Mercury disappears, look to its north. Higher above the horizon, you’ll see the bright star Arcturus in Boötes pop out in the darkening twilight. This red giant shines brightly than our Sun.

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY
The Intercession of the Theotokos or the Protection of Our Most Holy Lady Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary, is a feast of the Mother of God celebrated in the Eastern Orthodox & Byzantine Churches.
The Slavic word Pokrov, like the Greek Skepê has a complex meaning. First of all, it refers to a cloak or shroud, but it also means protection or intercession. It is often translated as Feast of the Intercession.
According to Eastern Orthodox Sacred Tradition, the apparition of Mary the Theotokos occurred during the 10th century at the Blachernae church in Constantinople (modern-day Istanbul) where several of her relics (her robe, veil, & part of her belt) were kept. St. Andrew the Blessed Fool-for-Christ, who was a Slav by birth, saw the dome of the church open & the Virgin Mary enter, moving in the air above him, glowing & surrounded by angels & saints. She knelt & prayed with tears for all faithful Christians in the world. The Virgin Mary asked Her Son, Jesus Christ, to accept the prayers of all the people entreating Him & looking for Her protection. Once Her prayer was completed, She walked to the altar & continued to pray. Afterwards, She spread Her veil over all the people in the church as a protection.
St Andrew turned to his disciple, St. Epiphanius, who was standing near him, &asked, “Do you see, brother, the Holy Theotokos, praying for all the world?” Epiphanius answered, “Yes, Holy Father, I see it and am amazed!”
According to the Primary Chronicle of St. Nestor, the inhabitants of Constantinople called upon the intercession of the Mother of God to protect them from an attack by a large Rus’ army. The feast celebrates the destruction of this fleet.
