Spiritual Unite: Is Reality An Illusion?

Every now and again you’ll hear someone say: It doesn’t matter, reality is just an illusion anyway. Those people are wrong  though it’s not that reality isn’t an illusion. It is an illusion. But this illusion matters. Everything Is Energy On the smallest level, everything is just energy.

MBG: How To Know If Your Essential Oils Have Expired (In 5 Seconds Or Less)

Essential oils are packed with some pretty amazing healing benefits—but alas, nothing lasts forever.

Just like the oils we cook with, essential oils do eventually “go bad.” While an expired oil won’t be dangerous to use per se, it will lose its potency and become just another good smell—or a not-so-great one.

Tetraktys: How to Connect with Nature – A Short Guide on Spirituality, Nature and Awareness

Nowadays, most people are aware that the natural world is more than the sum of its components. Nature embodies the sacred, the untouched creation and the “perfect” world that would be if mankind didn’t exist. Although a very non-humanistic view, it has become somewhat widespread in the modern world as people are feeling more and more that humanity is distancing itself from nature. Fortunately, it’s not always the case.

Elephant Journal: 4 Clues that we’ve Outgrown Something & Need to Move On.

Should I stay or should I go?
I think that’s a sh*t song from the 80s, but the title does highlight an important question we’ve all had to ask ourselves at least once in our life: is it time to leave?

EarthSky News: Tonight  Meet Fomalhaut, the loneliest star

Fomalhaut is a bright star – visible from all but far-northern latitudes – located in a region of the sky that contains only very faint stars. So it appears solitary in the night sky

Patheos-Pagan: The Truth About Hereditary Witches

The other day, I saw someone’s twitter handle. ‘Fourth generation hereditary witch.’ Bullcrap, I thought.

We’d all like to think we’re special, and to some degree, we are. I never believe in lying about anything, but there are so many hereditary witches these days who have such high degrees and long lineages.

Inner Journey: 

STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

“The burden is equal to the horse’s strength.”
— The Talmud

What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses?

If you make a list of the two and study them, you may discover they match.

Life needs us to bring our strengths to the world. To encourage us to do so, we have weaknesses that give rise to problems that require us to call on our strengths to solve them. Ingenious, don’t you think?

“Our weaknesses are divine gifts that when embraced will enable us to make our purposeful contribution to the whole, which is why we incarnated in the first place.”
— Andrew Schneider

“We acquire the strength we have overcome.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Relationships

“The long-term accommodation that protects marriage and other such relationships is… forgetfulness.”

-Alice Walker, You Can’t Keep a Good Woman Down (1981)

“Forgetfulness” goes beyond forgiveness. First you forgive, then you forget. This is present-moment awareness in action! The past is history – it’s gone, and it can certainly be forgotten. As we grow and change, as our relationships grow and change, forgetfulness can be a welcome accommodation!
