MBG: Plastic Pollution In The Ocean Sucks — But There’s A Movement Brewing To Use It Up

Last week, nearly 1,000 people gathered for an evening 5k around NYC’s West Side Highway—but the starting line wasn’t abuzz with typical runners’ talk of pacing or playlists. Instead, a chant of “Run for the oceans” erupted from the crowd.

Daily Good:  Circles of Time

In the Northern (and Southern) hemispheres, time is marked by seasonal changes, but in the forests of Bali the processes of growth and decay proceed at different rates all over the forest, all the time. According to Balinese theory, each living being moves on its own time scheme, and events occur when these touch, when things or creatures interact with one another. This view of time as applied to human life and the process of aging differs enormously from that of the West. Learn more here about the Balinese Middle World

Spirituality & Health: 5 Reasons to Eat Lentils
Lentils have been gathered and eaten for about 60,000 years, and farmed for 10,000 years, making them one of the world’s oldest food sources. They are technically an edible pulse in the legume family that grows on a bushy plant. But I never quite know what to do with them

EarthSky News: Draco, great Dragon of the north

Tonight … if you have a dark sky, make your acquaintance with the constellation Draco the Dragon, starting at nightfall. At mid-northern latitudes, Draco is a circumpolar constellation, meaning it is out all night long every night of the year.

Patheos-Pagan: Self Care Both Practical And Mystical: Techniques For Defensive Coping

It should go without saying but taking care of yourself is crucial for anyone in any viable spiritual, mystical, or occult practice. Now more than ever it is crucial, especially if you’ve decided to do your part in ways either practical and/or magical in order to help out with the current state of affairs.

Inner Journey: 

IT’S OKAY TO DREAM!

“Don’t discard your fantasies as merely wishful thinking. Honor them as messages from the deepest part of your being about what you can do and directions you can choose.”
— Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

What are your deepest heart-felt desires, dreams and visions?

Our deepest desires and dreams align with the essence of who we are. The more we align with that essence, the more our life holds meaning, purpose and fulfilment. Do you have a sense of your destiny?

“Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.”
— Dale E. Turner

“Everybody builds a dream in their lifetime. You’re either going to build your dream, or somebody else’s. So build your own!”
— Christopher LaBrec

A Note from the Universe

Ever have that feeling that your life, your true work, has not yet begun?

Ever feel like you’re here for something more than you’ve yet identified? And that a billion eyes are upon you, just waiting for the prophecy to unfold?

Hmmmmmm…….

And, have you also ever wanted something so badly that all your wishing, hoping, and praying kept you from seeing that you had it all along?

Precisely,

The Universe

Simplicity

“Manifest plainness,
Embrace simplicity,
Reduce selfishness,
Have few desires.”

-Lao-tzu, The Way of Life

Another word for simple is “easy.” With ease, doesn’t that sound like a great way to live life? It’s our choice. We’re the ones who have been complicating our lives. Look at what’s really important. Sort things out, give yourself the space to see what is really there. You’ll be surprised at just how perfect “simple” really is.

-Lissa Coffey
