MNN: This shelter dog hugged his way to a real home

At the shelter, they called the big stray Huggable Horace.

When you’re a big dog with an uncertain past at a busy animal shelter, each passing day can seem a little dimmer than the last.

But not for Horace.

MBG: 6 Myths & Misconceptions About Medical Marijuana

We’re currently in the middle of a cannabis revolution. Slowly but surely the plant which was once dispensed at U.S. pharmacies and used as a legitimate medicine as recently as the 1930s has fought its way back into a positive light after years of being maligned as a dangerous, corrupting influence. State by state we are joining the long list of countries who have embraced the healing powers of this plant and stopped jailing people for growing, selling, and using it.

EarthSky News: Next few evenings  Moon sweeps through Leo

The waxing gibbous moon moves toward Leo the Lion’s brightest star Regulus, then passes it. It’s a good time to identify this easy-to-find constellation.

Patheos-Pagan: Welcome to the Growing Season!

As I look out my office window across the yard I see tiny sprouts of green finally poking through the ground inspire of tiny bits of snow scattered here and there. The rhubarb, tulips, daffodils, crocus, garlic and onion are multiple shades of green with hints of reds and pinks in them. The pussy willow is busting into large tuffs and the lilac and forsythia have budded.

Inner Journey: The Eyes of the Soul

Today, we want to share a passage from Martia Nelson’s book, ‘Coming Home’:
“My greatest teacher was the experience of living in split realities: personality and true self. Personality is our daily companion, our conscious self that sees the world through the eyes of limitation and dutifully keeps us informed about what we can and cannot do. True self, on the other hand, patiently stands by, offering the unwavering knowledge that a state of vibrant well- being and unlimited possibility is our true nature, a birthright that can be lived if we choose to do so. … True self simply refers to the aspect of our being that is completely aware of its expanded nature no matter what we may be experiencing at the time.”

Whenever we feel constrained, fearful, unworthy, inadequate or anything we deem to be negative, we have identified with our personality. We can always choose to view the same situation from the perspective of our soul.

“As a Witness, you begin to discover that you are not that which you have been observing; you are not those things that you have been noticing about your body. Instead, you are the noticer.”
— Wayne Dyer

Today’s Recipe: Green Tea Infused Edamame

Edamame is a delicious young soybean, often eaten straight out of the pods. You can find them in the frozen section of any grocery store, in the pod or shelled. I prefer to eat them from the pod; I find it more fun and much more tasty. Cooking the pods in a pot of boiling green tea gives it a nice dimension, aroma, and lovely texture.

Practice

“We must be the change we wish to see in the world.” ~-Mahatma Gandhi

Our spiritual practice has purpose. It helps us to learn and grow and feel our connection with the Divine. And it also helps to lift the spiritual energy of the whole planet! The more people who devote time to spiritual practice, the better off our world will be. So, there are two things we can each do, every day, to help ourselves and each other.

1. Continue regular spiritual practices. This includes prayer, meditation, reading spiritual works, serving others, and giving of our time and talents.
2. Encourage others to spend time pursuing their own spiritual practices. This may mean babysitting some youngsters so their mother can spend some time in silence, or sending enlightening e-mails on to friends!

Beliefnet: Daily Blessings in Disguise

There are so many expectations that are packed into a day. From getting the kids to school in the morning to making a decision as to what�s for dinner, each day seems to have an endless list of to-do�s. And the hustle and bustle infiltrates a cloud that engulfs our day-to-day, making it difficult to come up for air and recognize the many blessings that embody our life each day. In most cases, we take these blessings for granted because they�ve become second nature to us and have become a necessary standard of life. However, it�s important to take a moment each day and remember the small things.
