circles of compassion

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty

You know what their home life is gonna be like though…

*Killian throws salt over his left shoulder*

“What are you doing?”

“I dropped the bloody salt shaker.”

“And you decided to add to the mess by throwing more around?”


*Emma comes in and places shopping bags on the kitchen table*

“Wait until you see the boots I got Henry-”

*Killian grabs the bags and places them on the floor*

“It’s bad luck to put new shoes on the table, Swan!”

“…. okay….”


*Emma puts her beanie on her pillow. Killian removes it*

“Okay it was on my side of the bed.. what’s with you?”

“It’s bad luck to put a hat on the bed.”

“Seriously?”

“Aye.”

“Okay i’m gonna need all your bedroom superstitions right now.”

“Having a bed facing South brings misfortune.”

“Is that why you spun in circles with a compass when you first moved in?”

“……. it might have had something to do with it….”


*Killian enters the station with a big grin*

“Love, my right foot’s been itchy all morning. Are we off on a trip?”

“I’m not even gonna ask.”

I think nachos are my new favourite food!! For the sauce I just cooked up some onion, butter beans, red kidney beans, eggplant, spinach, corn and diced tomatoes and served with corn chips, ½ a mashed avocado, chives and hummus. And the best part- it’s all VEGAN!! 😊💗💗  that’s right, look at all the grass I eat people.🌱 I’m so happy that taste and health do not even factor as compromises in order for me to continue to extend the circle of compassion beyond the realms of humanity but to all flora and fauna. If anyone is even slightly considering going vegan, do your research, surround yourself with supportive and uplifting people and embark on this journey; never in my life have I felt so peaceful and in tune with my core values.

Prosperity Spell

This spell should be performed on a Sunday during the waxing moon. 

You will need? A Compass, A Silver Coin that you have blessed, 4 Large pinches of prosperity herbs, 1 Gold Candle, A square piece of Orange silk around 6 inches (13 cm), Orange Ribbon, Fresh spearmint leaves and a stick.

Method: 

Starting on a Sunday, carry your coin around with you for 7 Days. During this time, do someone a favour or exert yourself in some way. Take a stick and draw an imaginary circle on the floor, moving widdershins (in a anti-clockwise direction) Stand in the circle, use your compass to find north, south, east and west, then sprinkle a little of the herbs on the edges of your circle in these four directions.

Stand in the middle of the four points and light your candle. Holding the candle in your right hand and the coin in your left, recite the following spell while passing the coin through the flame of the candle 6 times. 

“O Angel Michael, help me understand the nature abundance,that I may become wealthy in spirit as well as financially. Bring me the money I need in order to live comfortably. I ask for the right amount of prosperity for my needs and to allow me the energy to use my gifts to celebrate life and to help others.  Grant me this and I will remember to give as I have received.”

Thank the angel and place the coin in the silk square, along with some spearmint leaves, and tie up the lot with orange orange ribbon keep this either in your coin purse/ wallet or in a safe place. 

Moving widdershins (anti- clockwise), gather up the herbs while saying “Thank you” to the four directions, and when you are holding all four pieces in your hand, say “So mote it be” and visualise the spell being carried out int the universe. Put the herbs under a tree, preferably  nut tree or else an oak or maple.

Recognizing the inherent worth of every living being with whom we share this planet is beautiful and transformative. We all want to live autonomously and free of suffering. Our subsequent extension of our circle of compassion to include nonhuman animals and our refusal to contribute to their exploitation is not an inconvenience or burden, but rather a chance to align our daily actions with our deepest values.
