Ten o’clock: the broken moon
Hangs not yet a half hour high,
Yellow as a shield of brass,
In the dewy air of June,
Poised between the vaulted sky
And the ocean’s liquid glass.
-Emma Lazarus (1849-87)
Spiritual Unite: Spiritual Awakening Symptoms – Anger – Assert Yourself
One of the most immediate and obvious symptoms of spiritual awakening is anger and frustration.
This destructive force comes on suddenly during the process of awakening and is actually a result of deeper parts of you “waking up” as you empower yourself.

Daily Good: A Primer for Forgetting
“We live in a culture that prizes memory–how much we can store, the quality of what’s preserved, how we might better document and retain the moments of our life while fighting off the nightmare of losing all that we have experienced. But what if forgetfulness were seen not as something to fear–be it in the form of illness or simple absentmindedness–but rather as a blessing, a balm, a path to peace and rebirth? A Primer for Forgetting is a remarkable experiment in…

She has a way of telling us the things that are hardest to hear—but they are also the reminders we need the most.

MNN: The Ozark chestnut, thought to be long gone, is making a comeback
The Ozark chinquapin (Castanea ozarkensis), also called the Ozark chestnut, was once a common species found in the Ozark forests.

Daily Tarot: The Judgement
It may be a busy, perhaps chaotic, day but underneath it all will be a prevailing sense of good will. Judgement tells you that people will wish you well and want to help you, no matter how much work they create for you. You may enjoy a cheerful outlook, too, that will last all day and make you productive and popular. Enjoy some good times with people today.
EarthSky News: Latest sunsets follow summer solstice
For people living around 40 degrees north latitude, the latest sunset of the year happens on or near June 27. And in the Southern Hemisphere, at 40 degrees south latitude, it’s the year’s latest sunrise that happens around now. That’s in spite of the fact that the Northern Hemisphere’s longest (or Southern Hemisphere’s shortest) day of the year fell on the June 21st solstice.
Patheos-Pagan: An Earth Centered Lord’s Prayer for Those Who Are Doing the Work
Our Mother Earth who art with us always
Hallowed be thy Soil.

DIRECT YOUR EVOLUTION
“Consciousness is the basis of all life and the field of all possibilities. Its nature is to expand and unfold its full potential. The impulse to evolve is thus inherent in the very nature of life.”
— Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Unlike other species, human beings can monitor our own evolutionary process. Better yet, we have the awareness and power to design our evolutionary path.
As creators, we are not limited to evolving through tiny, incremental steps. With our potent imaginations, we can design and manifest dramatic, profound change. How remarkable! What an awesome responsibility. What fun!
Our challenge is to break free of our present concept of reality to create brand new dreams that will bring the ideal to life.
“There is only one thing more powerful than all the armies of the world, that is an idea whose time has come.”
— Victor Hugo
“We lie in the lap of immense intelligence.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
A Note from the Universe
Remember you’re always granted lots of leeway, wiggle room, and tolerance when engaging life’s magic.
You pretty much just need to have a dream and show up, then wands start waving all over the place.
Today’s Recipe: Creamy Zucchini Bacon Soup
I had an overabundance of white zucchini so I thought I’d try to make a soup with it. You can use regular zucchini in lieu of white zucchini for this. I used bacon as the flavourful base for it, then topped it off with crispy bacon as a stir-in garnish. It was so hearty and delicious!

Of all colors, brown is the most satisfying. It is the deep, fertile tint of the earth itself; it lies hidden beneath every field and garden; it is the garment of multitudes of earth’s children, from the mouse to the eagle.”
-Mary Webb, The Spring of Joy, 1917
Brown isn’t one of the colors in the rainbow- and yet, could you imagine a world without it? To me, brown represents nature – tree trunks, dirt, things that are real. And chocolate! No, I couldn’t imagine a world without it…
