What I heard this morning was clear and dramatic.  The images specific and detailed.  We are being asked to recall something from an earlier guidebook definition.  And apply it right now.

Accept what is.

             Of course this is not the same as being resigned to our fate.  Because our “fate” is actually the incredibly detailed plan that we worked on with our loved ones, the chart we plotted before arriving here, into these bodies/shells.

             What we are accepting is really our very own blueprint, that which will help us the most.

             When we “accept what is” we do so with open hands and hearts.  Trusting that we’re exactly where we need to be, learning precisely the lessons that will benefit us the most.  Should we continue to strive for lovingkindness?  Absolutely.  Should our goal be a mindful and caring passion?  Without a doubt.

             When we  “accept,” we honour our wisdom.  And that of those we’ve chosen to walk alongside in this lifetime.  On our card altar, back within the regular rotation, we’ve been shown another, and very beautiful, aspect of this same idea.

“The Rainbow Prince  ~  26  ~

compensation, perseverance

When the Rainbow Prince appears as your Ally, he reminds you about the Law of Compensation and the Law of Receiving.   After the rainstorm you’ve endured on your journey, the Rainbow Prince brings you a pot of gold, which is the result of your using all the elements of your inner Light and reaching into the sky until  you touch the material realm from one end to the other.  

This isn’t always an easy process, and hard work must be rewarded by compensation.   When you align yourself with the energy of giving the highest value, your compensation is inherent in the act itself.

But the message here is more than that:

the Rainbow Prince says to keep your sights on the sky after the rainstorms that may have upset your life.  Follow your bliss to the pot of gold waiting for you.

Perseverance pays off, and your reward will be greater than you can imagine.”

Wisdom Of The Hidden Realm Oracle Cards by Colette Baron-Reid

Today’s Sharing:

is in reply.  My exceptionally beautiful, most recent quiche sparked another round of recipe requests.  I’ve shared this here before, more than once.  But it’s understandable that it might be forgotten.

             Because it’s not really a specific set of ingredients nor instructions.  It was at one time (more than 25 years ago), but now this dish is simply a what-I-have-on-hand sort of toss-together, budget-pleasing, general suggestion.

             I make the rice crust* by using about (about!) a cup of cooked rice, any kind.  Cooled.  Mix in an egg or two (whatever), and some seasoning.  I like Kale Sprinkles right now, but I’ve also used paprika, parsley, garlic, seasoning salt.  Stir well.

*Or use any type of crust you want, even none at all.

             Smash the mixture into a greased pie plate (mine is very deep and antique, no clue how it compares to more modern equipment).  Push with a large spoon or spatula so that the bottom is flat and it is coming up the sides, just like a regular pie crust would be.  (If you have any basil, you could press some across the surface at this stage.)

             In that same bowl you used for combining your rice and eggs (don’t bother washing it), toss in spinach, or whatever greenery you have around.  This originally called for a box of frozen chopped, defrosted and drained, but not cooked.

             Add eggs.  If you have lots, us lots.  If you have only a few, then add cream (or milk or unflavored  yogurt or cottage cheese) to stretch the liquids.

             Now, look around.  What else do you have?  Got cheese?  Grate a bunch* and throw that in.  Bacon handy and no vegetarians in your house?  Crumble and add a handful.  Sun-dried tomatoes?  Also good.

*We ended up with some pre- shredded Fiesta Blend, this last time, but have used all varieties and types and ages.

             Salt and pepper.  Mix thoroughly.  Breaking up the spinach if needed.  Pour over your crust.  Place dish on a baking sheet, it might overflow, or it may not, but be safe.  Cook for at least an hour.  Then, if it’s really pretty, take a picture.

  1. And cook it at what temperature???

    “Accept what is. Of course this is not the same as being resigned to our fate.” I am glad that you made that distinction between acceptance and resignation. Of course, being who I am, accepting is still tough work! 🙂
