Spiritual Unite: When You Are Connected To Someone’s Soul
Most of our relationships are ephemeral; rarely do they last. In times like these, a soul-to-soul connection doesn’t even exist between family members. We can share our darkest and deepest secrets with another human being, but still feel emotionally detached. And yet, one day, out-of-the-blue, we meet someone.

Inner Journey: WORK WITH TENSION
“You never will be the person you can be if pressure, tension and discipline are taken out of your life.”
— James G. Bilkey
We need tension in our lives. It’s the force of personal evolution — it sparks creativity and higher consciousness. If we’re not comfortable with a situation, we try to improve it, right?
Tension arises through our experience of opposites. These opposites fight each other as each one struggles for dominance. Tension is transformed when two opposite dimensions of reality are brought together in balance and in wholeness.
Know that tension is an integral part of growth. Instead of avoiding or resisting tension when it arises, identify the opposing forces at play. Make space for each of them to be there together and the tension will transform.
We encounter tensions between positives and negatives, mind and body, self and environment, self and others, and personality and soul – the dualities in our lives.
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
— Neale Donald Walsch
A Note from the Universe
There isn’t a moment in any day, when someone, somewhere, isn’t better off because of something you’ve done.
And no matter what you do, or don’t do, with the rest of your life, you cannot now comprehend the amounts of love, joy, and personal assistance that are already being pressed out to you in gratitude.
Must be nice,
Today’s Recipe: Honey Turnip Cough Syrup
My parents have been using this all-natural method to make their own cough syrup since I can remember. Turnips and honey have awesome natural antibiotic qualities to them. When they meld together, they make a fantastic medicine. This is just as effective as store-bought syrups for cough and congestion, yet it has no side effects. You can keep refilling the turnip with honey to make more of the medicine.

“Freedom is not won on the battlefields. The chance for freedom is won there. The final battle is won or lost in our hearts and minds.”–Helen Gahagan Douglas (1945)
It is essential for our souls to feel free. We need freedom of expression, freedom of choice, to learn and grow. And yet, so many of our brothers and sisters all over the world live without that freedom. We are all one, and we feel their pain. Amidst the politics and controversy, what can we do? We can hold them in our hearts and in our minds, lift them up and know the Highest Truth for all of us. We can express gratitude for the freedom that we experience every day.
