Slan Y?all,



Greetings to all this Beltain! May your cattle be blessed

with health and increase many fold for the sustenance of

your tuaths and tribes. Yee-haw! Get along little doggies.



I know Beltain is not the usual time of reflection, but

spiritual matters have been on my mind of late. I?ve been

on this journey through the Sacred Grove for near 50 years

and following a Celtic Path for six years. The following is

some of what I?ve learned so far??.



Embrace ambiguity, we live in a universe of subtlty and

shading. Our existence is not black or white and simple

answers do not always solve complex issues.



Nurture your yearnings. Our longings keep us moving

through life, make sure you hunger for the spiritual and

emotional, not the material.



Accept your adversities and walk through them, you will

emerge stronger. If help is offered on the way accept it

with humility, this honors those who give you comfort.



Nature permeates everything, even the concrete canyons

of the Metropolis. She is with you even when you can

not perceive Her. But if you open yourself to Her she will

manifest herself to you, even as a wild flower blooming

from a crack in the pavement.



We are integral to the Oran Mohr and cannot be separate

from it. We exist within Creation and it exists within us,

seamless and fluid.



Creating with our hands is a form of prayer. Practicing an

Art taps us into the great flow of the Creative Force and

brings us to a meditative state aligned with the Creator/s.

Imbas comes with ease.



Beltain arrives today in south Texas wet and very cool,

behind an arc of loud thunder and bright flashes of lightning.

I will pause from my weekend chores to breath the ozone

of the rain and express my happy gratitude for this blissful

cool air. Summer is soon here, we steel ourselves now to

endure until Samhain.



Happy Trails,

Sarida,

Thank you for your incredible post! Have a wonderful Beltane and enjoy the cooler weather while it's here. It is refreshing sometimes, isn't it?

We celebrated yesterday by clearing away the old dried leaves and twigs that have protected the garden beds and planting some roses and alstroemeria. Our gardening season has finally arrived! The night breezes have a definite floral scent to them now-it's wonderful!
