Luck Factor and How Your Natural Spirit Can Wake-Up

Assisting your Luck from the inside out is a wonderful model espoused by the ancient Stoics.  

I took a short course from Philip Golabuk of the Philosophy Center’s Fate Project, and am reviewing its essential breakdown, which I give here as the simplest of phrases, each quality can be enjoyed as a lifetime pursuit and development!

The Well-Ordered Soul

Truthfulness is at the heart of the well-ordered soul.

Showing Up (not hiding and taking your chances).

Innocence (we know so little!, so be teachable).

Diligence (each of us is presented with things which are only ours to do, conscientiously and to the best of our ability).

Dialogue calls us to humbly open ourselves to outside-ourselves discovery, as well as being intimate with the inner voice of clarity and truth, which the Greeks defined simply as happiness, as good spirit.

This book is a rich, valuable, & refreshing combination of imagery and poetry, straight from the author’s lifelong engagement with wilderness.  Encouragement & gentle support to Be Your Precious Self (from the front piece of Nothing Is As It Was).

Here is rich permission to receive a delightful healing through awareness of the world around and within yourself.  Here are affirming prompts to pay attention to your mind and heart, to “open your skull and chest to review,” to engage yourself with nature, with the spirits of nature, to walk with a new sense of ease.

It is vital to affirm your own unique sense of ability and integrity, to cultivate your inner anchor if you sense complexity around you.  It is vital for our precious planet and the earth for you to know that you are nature, you are natural, you can communicate and dialogue with the healing nature spirits.  In a way, this is bringing it all back home, so that you can expand even further!  Enjoy!

Souls With Voice

We listen, wherever we are, to chatter or rhythms or fantastic air -mobiles, and all sounds feed us.  Neither here nor there, neither wrong or right, sound injects into us and informs us.  Our voice, internal or external, influences the environment.  This is all a two-way, round-about, give and take, cause and effect.  I invite your treasured voice to sing out, your daily stutterings and your daily rejoicings to find their avenues of expression.  Why not?
