My lilac trees are old and tall;
I cannot reach their bloom at all.
They send their perfume over trees
And roofs and streets, to find the bees.
-Louise Driscoll (1875-1957)
Spiritual Unite: The Meaning Of Crown Chakra Symbol
The Crown Chakra symbol is associated with spiritual ascension. Formerly known as the Sahasrara Chakra, it is the cornerstone of spirituality and divine Knowledge. It caters to many important processes of your mind, including neuropsychological pathways, emotional stability, spiritual growth, understanding, and creative thought.

MBG: How To Recognize When The Universe Gives You A Sign (And Make It Happen More Often)
We receive far more signs from the universe than we realize. As a professional intuitive, part of my job is to help people pick up on signs they might otherwise miss. These points will help you recognize the divine guidance you are missing as well as increase the number of signs you receive on a daily basis:
Elephant Journal: There Is Such a Thing as “Healthy Selfishness”
Is being selfish wrong?
It’s when we become so pathologically selfish and egotistical (that it actually does harm to ourselves and the people around us) that puts us in the wrong. This is more narcissism than selfishness.
I think we have all probably felt conflicted about our own levels of selfishness. There may have been times when we’ve needed to be selfish at the expense of others—or contrarily have known that we need to be selfish about something, but feel too guilt-ridden and remorseful to actually be that way. I’ve often found myself in the second category.
MNN: Dogs in hot cars: Where is it legal to help them?
We’ve all seen it before. There’s a dog in a parked car in the middle of summer with no owner in sight. Maybe the person ran into a store for a few minutes or maybe he’s been gone for a lot longer than that. In either case, the dog could be in serious trouble.
EarthSky News: Earth and Jupiter are closest May 10
We went between Jupiter and the sun last night according to clocks in North America. But the giant planet will be closest to us tomorrow. Why?
Patheos-Pagan: The Value of Chaos
The Kingdom of Egypt lasted for over 3000 years. Longer than that, if you follow the evidence outlined by Gordon White in Star.Ships (and I do). The daily rituals performed by the temple priests helped maintain Ma’at – both the principles of order and justice, and the Goddess who personifies them
ARE YOU SERVING?
“You may be good, but what are you good for? You’ve got to be good for something. Youï¿½ve got to be about some project, some task that requires you to be humble and obedient to the universal principles of service.”
— Stephen R. Covey
“We had to learn ourselves, and furthermore we had to teach the despairing men, that it did not matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life but instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life, daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for the individual.”
— Victor Frankl
“If you think you’re too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito in the room.”
— Anita Roddick
A Note from the Universe
What part of “visualize” do you think most people misunderstand?
Or don’t they do it, just once a day, for a few minutes a day, because they’ve yet to realize that whatever it is they most want lies only a little thinking away?
Can you hear me now?

“Ultimately there are no dualities – neither black nor white, neither oppressor nor victim. We are all connected in a journey toward the happiness that is labeled enlightenment.” -His Holiness the Dalai Lama
There are no dualities, there is nothing outside ourselves. We are all One. Our connection to each other is reflective of our connection with God. There is no beginning, there is no end. It is ever-present and eternal. We are not alone in this life, ever. We are bound together, to learn and grow and help one another. It is our purpose, it is our privilege.
