You are invited to have beside you, for the service, the following items:
For Fire, a candle
For Water, a bowl or cup of water
For Earth, a bowl of dirt or a rock
All the experiences we have in nature are of value to us.
They can help us heal physically, emotionally, and intellectually,
and our ties to the Creator may be strengthened simply
through close encounters with Creation itself.
~ Jim Kalnin
Teachings come from everywhere when you open yourself to them.
That’s the trick of it, really. Open yourself to everything,
and everything opens itself to you.
~ Richard Wagamese, Embers
