Summer declines and roses have grown rare,
But cottage crofts are gay with hollyhocks,
And in old garden walks you breathe an air
Fragrant of pinks and August-smelling stocks.

Spiritual Unite: 10 Signs You Are The Carrier Of Your Family Karma

One of the strangest traditional beliefs in spirituality is that some of us are carriers of the bad karma in our bloodlines. Our families often hold bad blood and some advanced spiritualist think that the feud stays in the family and the new generations pay for the sins of the older generations.

MBG: Anxious About Summer Ending? We’ve Got An Essential Oil Blend For That

If you’ve suffered from them, you know: Summer scaries are real. Imagine an amplified version of the Sunday scaries that last way longer than a single night. It makes sense—the shift from summertime into autumn is huge and anxiety-inducing. It’s arguably more significant for both our bodies and our schedules than ringing in the New Year, for example, and yet we don’t give ourselves the time or head space to make sure we’re equipped for the change.

Daily Good: GK Chesterton: A Piece of Chalk

Imagine “roaring with laughter” at the sudden radiant realization that the very thing you so desperately need is right there in abundance all around. You may currently be keenly aware of lacking something physical like the artist’s chalk in this essay. Possibly, you are aching with the lack you feel for something deeper such as love or belonging. Read how expanding your awareness and truly ‘seeing” where you are in this moment sometimes allows the discovery of glorious abundance all around. { read more }

Be The Change

Reflect on one thing you feel keenly lacking in your life at this moment. Experiment with shifting your view of the issue or problem to the idea that it exists in abundance all around, waiting to be discovered. Then go on a treasure hunt of discovery.

Elephant Journal: Best Quote from the Dalai Lama Ever.

Whether we’re conscious of it or not, all of our actions begin with a motivation. Whether it’s going to the fridge to get a snack or deciding to sell everything and build a yoga retreat center in Iceland, we have some kind of goal in mind.

MNN: How a sound bath can make meditation easier

Even for people who’ve been doing it for years, meditation can be difficult sometimes. So, it’s no wonder that those who are new to the practice can be frustrated or confused about what’s going on. What’s meditation supposed to feel like? How do you make your mind stop racing? How do you know when you’ve done what you need to do to reap the many benefits?

EarthSky News: Young moon, Venus after sunset August 13

This evening – August 13, 2018 – look westward at dusk to see the young moon and the dazzling planet Venus bejeweling the evening twilight. The moon and Venus rank as the second-brightest and third-brightest celestial bodies, respectively, after the sun, so they’ll pop out into the sky shortly after sunset.

Inner Journey: 

DON’T THINK AWAY YOUR FEELINGS

“When emotions are managed by the heart, they heighten your awareness of the world around you and add sparkle to life. The result is new intelligence and a new view of life.”
— Doc Childre and Howard Martin

How do you intellectualize your emotions?

Many of us live so much in our heads that we intellectualize our emotions. We analyze, rationalize and explain them away so quickly that we don’t actually experience them.

Learn to honour your emotions at all times by being willing to feel them. Of course, you may need to exercise some judgment over how and when you express them.

“Learning to be aware of feelings, how they arise and how to use them creatively so they guide us to happiness, is an essential lifetime skill.”
— Joan Borysenko
