Happy Halloween 2!

Chant for Samhain
A year of beauty. A year of plenty. A year of planting. A year of harvest.
A year of forests. A year of healing. A year of vision. A year of passion.
A year of rebirth. A year of rebirth. This year may we renew the earth.
Let it begin with each step we take. Let it begin with each change we make.
Let it begin with each chain we break. And let it begin every time we awake.

I found this chant on the All Saints Parish website.  They are an Episcopal Church in the Anglican tradition that embraces Catholic and Protestant elements in Brookline, Massachusetts.  But the church also has a Celtic flavour to it.  I think the chant is quite fitting not only for the Celtic New Year, but for the age we live in.  Although most of the things I write about on this blog are quite negative, I do believe that it is very important to keep an overriding postive attitude.  Photo credit

Another interesting website I came across today is a series of pages presented by Paul Trafford on Buddhism.  All in all, there are plenty of ways to resist being assimilated by the Borg!  Photo credit and link to pages.

Happy Halloween!
