Drawing Boundaries: How to Keep Your Blog from Complicating Your Life

The Daily Post

My name is Elizabeth Urello, and as far as I know, I am the only Elizabeth Urello in existence. This is great for branding purposes, but terrible for anonymity: I am highly Googleable. I often think that I would take more risks online if my name were, say, Elizabeth Jones. But it isn’t, so I’m pretty careful about what I choose to share online.

Where Druidry begins

Druid Life

I’d like to point you at a small film on youtube it’s the first ‘Calm’ film in this list, which for reasons I cannot fathom, I can’t get a url for.

It’s a beautiful video. If you can’t watch, the audio is still well worth your time, and apologies to anyone whose internet does not allow. The urge towards peace and stillness is a big part of what brings many of us to Druidry. Awareness of the enormity of nature can help us not be overwhelmed by the frantic elements of our own lives.

What this film misses, is the way in which our collective anxiety and panic is not essential. It need not be like this. We’re forced to run ever faster, haunted by economic pressures in a system that demands we do more for less, and pay more for less, as though this could continue forever. But…

When You Water the Garden

Read the article. I’ve got no words because the article is such a good summary of anything I could ever say. I have to remind myself of these same things sometimes too, otherwise I overwhelm myself at times with trying to do too much. Definitely worth a read though. :3

The-best-results-comeWhen you water the garden, you can’t expect the plants to grow in front of your eyes.

You have to continue to water and care for your garden if it is to flourish in the long-term.

When you exercise, you can’t expect to immediately run a marathon with rippling biceps.

You have to remain disciplined with your regime and diet to reach an elite level of fitness.

Not always with the flow

When I initially read this two quotes from World of Warcraft came to mind that the Jinyu say, “Go where the river wills,” but later they go on to say, “Don’t be afraid to swim against the current”. This post had really great ideas and a good message, however – I don’t think, “Going with the flow,” is bad either. Many of us already know that life simply cannot be THAT easy, as much as we’d like it to be.

And often times when it IS that easy, it isn’t worthwhile. More often than not though I have heard from other Spiritual individuals, teachers, wisemen and so forth that if you want very -little- drama in your life or otherwise, go with the flow. If you try to swim against these things it may make things more difficult. That being said, sometimes as hard as we try to do just this, there will BE drama regardless.

Be sure to keep these things in mind when you are reading this article. 🙂

Druid Life

Sometimes everything is easy and falls neatly into place. When that happens, it can be tempting to see it as proof that we are blessed, and moving in the direction some higher, hopefully benevolent force approves of. Perhaps we feel in tune with the universe, or that reality is bending over backwards to accommodate us. Either way, it can be intoxicating.

Nature is populated by things that create tides, and things that go along with them. The moon makes the sea tides, opening up coastal feeding opportunities, and then the predators come to feed on that which feeds and they are all part of the same tide. It makes good sense to use something heading your way, to go with a flow that suits your purpose.

Swans migrating thousands of miles ride the winds to ease and speed the journey. They could ride any wind, letting the air currents take…

Time to put the “Grim” back into the Grimm Brother’s Fairy Tales

Metal Gaia

crookedtree

ORIGINAL ARTICLE

Once upon a time a boy and his little brother were pretending to be a butcher and a pig. The older brother slices the younger’s throat, only to be stabbed in the heart by his enraged mother. Unfortunately, while she was stabbing her son, another one of her children drowns in a bath tub. So then she hangs herself. When dad gets home, he’s so depressed that he soon dies afterwords.

Now this might sound like the content of a death metal video, but this is actually one of the original tales from The Grimm’s Brother Fairy Tales. Jacob (1785–1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786–1859), were German academics, linguists, cultural researchers, lexicographers and authors who together specialized in collecting and publishing folklore during the 19th century. They are particularly famous for tales such as “Cinderella,” “The Frog Prince,” “Hansel and Gretel,” “Rapunzel” and “Snow White.”

Recently, Jack Zipes, a professor of…

Roses Come With Thorns

I have no words but this was worth sharing. 🙂

But a rose is still worth the risk.

You can’t get honey without risking being stung by bees.

But the honey is still worth it.

You can’t taste victory without risking the disappointment of losing.

But the contest is still worth it.

Recognise your Inner Critic

This is a reblog folks. For those who feel stuck in a rut, there might be more to it, this might help you get a clue as to what you’re dealing with. 🙂

“I am really driven, but my drive doesn’t affect the conversations I have in my head about life, and my worries and fears and insecurities.” Zach Braff .
The concept of an inner critic is well known but most people have to deal with more than one manifestation. There might be one that attacks you for doing too much of something and another who then berates you for being lazy. The advice would be to work with each separately. I will now look at the types of inner critic that can pop up.
We all know it, only too well. It’s that inner voice, that “inner critic,” that seems always present and always keenly prepared to defeat us. When we feel happy, the voice says: “Yeah, this can’t last.” When we’re about to attempt something, it whispers: “Watch out. You’re gonna fail.” And when we do succeed, the voice dismisses: “That was just luck…

This post is a quick response to the above article featured in The Telegraph newspaper.

 

It led me to wondering what people’s actual opinions are about smacking children when they are naughty.

Isn’t there a difference in beating a child senseless and a light tap on the hand or bottom???

Does smacking a child always mean they will be physiologically disturbed when they grow up???

Or do they become violent adults????

Is it possible to fully reason with a 5 year old?? Explaining to them that their behaviour is wrong, and asking them why they engaged in such behaviour????

Is it the states responsibility to intervene, and create laws forbidding parents to discipline their children as they see fit????

Has this all gone too far – admit you smack your child and face the wrath of Hell????

After all – extreme cases of abuse and diabolical stories of children suffering go unnoticed by the powers that be…

I don’t trust Depression and neither should anyone else, that is for sure. I know from personal experience the truth of that.
