Earth Below: Rutile / Main Segment Part 1: Dedications and Initiations / Main Segment Part 2: Belonging

In this episode, we take a look at rutile (and one of my favorites, rutilated quartz) in the "Earth Below" segment, then we have an extra-long, two-part Main segment on dedications, initiations, and belonging.

One more note: In the second part of the Main segment, I gave a slight paraphrase of a quote by Robert Anton Wilson, and realized during editing that it wasn't clear exactly where the paraphrase ended and my own comments picked back up.  The original full quote by RAW (from his DVD, "Maybe Logic") was, "Everybody thinks it's very hard to be a mystic -- you gotta go through a helluva lot of effort to realize your union with everything -- but actually you're experiencing your union with everything all of the time. Otherwise, you wouldn't be experiencing anything."  So the paraphrased quote was really just the one sentence.

Don't forget to send me your thoughts about the year 2012 by the end of February, and what you think about all of the predictions and prophecies, if you want to be entered into a drawing for a copy of Etched Offerings: Voices from the Cauldron of Story, the anthology of Pagan fiction from Misanthrope Press.  Email oraia@earthandstars.org, and please put "2012" in the subject line.

Bright and dark blessings,
