Pray to the Moon when She is round,
Luck with you will then abound,
What you seek for shall be found
On the sea or solid ground.

What He Said. (About Animism, Occultism & Housekeeping, Part 3)

A final tidbit of What-He-Said (for now, anyway...)

“Everywhere we look is nature — thoughts of the gods. These thoughts — living elemental beings — had a relationship with human beings in the past. Now they want to enter into a relationship with human beings once again. If one takes some object seriously, one discovers that it arose through a process — it reveals a history. They're wonderful exercises for this. At lunch one can say for example: ‘The salt is now Mr. Salt. How does he look, this is Mr. Salt?’ One can approach the creative elements of imagination in this way.” 

--Manfred Schmidt-Brabant, The Spiritual Tasks of the Homemaker
