"Fireflies, often called lightning bugs, are magical symbols of inspiration and hope. They are the promise of accomplishment through hope and efforts. They remind us that we have laid the appropriate groundwork and from it will spring great reward. In the traditional tarot, they would be associated with the Star card."
~Ted Andrews/ Amimal Wise
"For those to whom the firefly appears, it is time to trust in your own rhythms--physical and spiritual. Our hopes will begin to manifest, and our ability to inspire will grow. Fireflies remind us that there are others who will respond to us and who are like us. They flash with similar creative rhythms. They will make their presence known soon, and they will make our life more creative and healthier." Ted Andrews/Animal Wise
If the thought of fireflies has illunminated your thinking; know it is time for you to be creative and to collaborate with like-minded others for the betterment of all. ~Dave Kenyon
"We are an endless moving stream in an endless moving stream."
"Allowing the truth of who you are--your spiritual self--to rule your life means you stop the struggle and learn to move with the flow of your life."
"the universe operates through dynamic exchange... giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. and in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives."
"To know oneself is the first step toward making flow a part of one's entire life. But just as there is no free lunch in the material economy, nothing comes free in the psychic one. If one is not willing to invest psychic energy in the internal reality of consciousness, and instead squanders it in chasing external rewards, one loses mastery of one's life, and ends up becoming a puppet of circumstances."
If your self talk, your self image and your self value are not loving, nurturing, and empowering it's time for a transformational move into the:
Self-empowerment is the only true way to enlightenment. ~Dave Kenyon
Your inner work is the way through self-inflicted pain and suffering; we all are running attitudinal programs that keep us stuck in places where our beliefs deny the beauty and love we are seeking; begin your work now! ~Dave Kenyon
Some Enlightened Thanksgiving Thoughts
by Ernie Fitzpatrick
I am THANKFUL that I no longer embrace some of my earlier childhood beliefs such as:
>I am THANKFUL that God is not a PUNISHER sending people to hell eternally.
>I am THANKFUL that we're not brought into the world FLAWED and sinful, but in the image of God
>I am THANKFUL that we are not VICTIMS but participants in the creation of nature and our very lives.
> I am THANKFUL that I am ONE with Creator and creation and not separated.
> I am THANKFUL that I get to PARTICIAPTE in how my life and world will develop
> I am THANKFUL that there's not a COSMIC OVERLORD that I need to worry about pleasing each day.
>I am THANKFUL that as humans we are not all-powerful, but we are ALL POWERFUL.
>I am THANKFUL that the Creator is PURSUASIVE and not coercive!
>I am THANKFUL that we are neither subjects of a vengeful God, nor victims of a random universe.
>I am THANKFUL that we hold within our collective selves the ability to achieve a positive CRITICAL MASS before we reach a critical massacre.

My friend life is best lived as an inside out experience. The answers to your questions and concerns lies within your inner guidance; the place where your higher self connects to your consciousness is where only your unique and beautiful perspective/ truth may be found. I call this your inner wizard. ~Dave Kenyon
