Life is a Spiral – not a Circle (motivational)

Life is a Spiral (c)ManiNavasothy2014

Life is a Spiral      art (c) Mani Navasothy 2014

Life is not a circle..but a spiral.

Cycles seem to come around, same things seem to repeat..but each time we are moving slightly up or down in progress.. and each time, we should try to do things slightly different, to see if energies and life shifts to better states..

At times, others may try to keep us in the same spot, or collapse our life from a spiral to a circle.. Not letting that happen is also hard work.. (in other words, letting people’s expectations and projections getting the better of us..).

Its hard enough each of us having to work on our own shadows, issues and projections.

So let’s make it easy on one another..

Life is not a Circle. Life is a spiral..

Let’s keep moving ..from the deep subconscious prompts onwards and upwards to our higher selves ..

Navarathri  celebrates and worships three of the many aspects of the Hindu goddess `Shakthi’, which means quite simply `Power’.  She is the power and energy that permeates and moves the planets, stars, moon and all the worlds within and without. Navarathri means, `nine’ (nava) `nights’ (rathri) in Tamil language of the Indian continent. The dates are determined according to the lunar calendar.

DIRECTIONS

If you’re coming by tube to Chalk Farm,turn RIGHT on leaving the station & cross Adelaide Rd to get to Regents Park Rd into which you turn RIGHT (admiring the Banksy stencil graffiti of a uniformed maid sweeping dust under a wall) & go uphill to the cycle/pedestrian only bridge over a railway & turn LEFT over it.

Confronted by 3 roads take the middle one (still R P Rd) & continue past the trendy shops & coffee-houses full of minor celebrities as it curves very slightly to the left, until you reach the Queen’s Head pub on the corner opposite the gate into Primrose Hill.

Enter the Park thro’ this gate & take the steepest path in front of you to the top of the hill where you will find a viewing platform overlooking most of the old City of London to the South & East, & a Memorial to Iolo Morganwg.

To the WEST & just below the brow of the hill you will see a small copse of hawthorn trees which is where we meet. Do please come & join us & make yourself known.

And remember, we’ll be meeting up in the pub afterwards! :-)

Share and enjoy and remember – Please do note the caveat covering photography listed in our “about” section describing the LADS meetings:
“Please contact us first if you would like to take pictures, and please be sure that you obtain consent first. Thank you”

Staring today: Nova Stellar Wicca Meet-up Group in London

Happy to announce  – a fellow Wiccan friend and Craft sister of mine is organising a special monthly Wiccan meetup event. here are the details..

Nova Stellar Wicca Meet-up Group (London)

Nova Stellar Wicca Meet-up Group (London)

Nova Stellar Wicca Meetup Group (london)

The aim of the Group is to provide an opportunity for genuine seekers to find out more about Wicca, meeting up with Initiates from a number of different covens based in London.

The meet-up will allow individuals to ask questions about the Wiccan tradition, inform expectations and help seekers ascertain if this is an appropriate path for them. It will help consolidate ideas and beliefs and (hopefully!) encourage further development in this beautiful Pagan Tradition.

We welcome those who have a genuine interest in Initiatory Wicca, who may wish to consider joining a formal group/coven in the future. If you have been working on a solitary basis and having trouble meeting established groups in the London area, this could be the Group for you!

If you wish to attend, please confirm on Facebook .  so we can gauge numbers. The Castle is opposite Farringdon Tube Station which links to the Northern Line, making it reasonably easy to travel to from all other major tube lines. We hope to reserve an area in the upstairs Lounge Bar.

The Group will meet on the second Tuesday of each month in the future.

First meeting is on the Full Moon!   Tuesday 9th Sept 2014

Time:  18:30–22:00

Venue: The Castle  (Pub),  Farringdon, 34-35 Cowcross Street,, EC1M 6DB London, United Kingdom

————-

And don’t forget the monthly `Woodland Wicca Circle’ that I facilitate monthly ..  is starting up after summer breaks…soon.
