The Secrets of the Pineal Gland

The pineal gland, which was once called the ‘third eye,’ is a little organ found somewhere down in the focal point of the cerebrum. Named for its pinecone shape, this organ secretes melatonin, which assumes a job in the body’s inner clock.


Daily Good: Chitrakoot’s Tree Man: 11 Years, 40,000 Trees

The tragic death of his wife and three children led Bhaiyyaram to vow to live only for others. He began to plant trees on fallow land near his village. No water near, so four times each day he hauled two 20-kilo boxes with a rope slung over his shoulders. Living in a hut he built nearby to guard the trees from thieves, his eleven years of work has produced a plantation of 40,000 trees. { read more }

Be The Change

What do you find is lacking in your neighborhood that you could do something about? Plant a tree, cultivate a garden, gather friends to clean out a vacant lot that’s used for garbage, spend a little time creating something beautiful.


Elephant Journal: 3 Reminders that the Ocean is a Home to be Taken Cared Of.

What are the problems, and where are the solutions, to help us better protect our most precious resource?
With microbeads now being considered a toxic substance in Canada we thought we’d share this photo of us hunting for plastic in the middle of what’s been dubbed “The Great Pacific Garbage Patch,” a massive collection of plastic waste congregated together by swirling ocean currents known as gyres.


Herbal Muse: Elegant Lady: Queen Anne’s Lace

Queen Anne’s lace (Daucus carota) is a member of the Apiaceae (formerly Umbelliferae) family, which includes celery, angelica, dill, parsley, carrot and many other flowering plants known for their umbrella-like flowerheads and feathery foliage. It is known as Queen Anne’s lace primarily in North America and by several other common names elsewhere, such as bird’s nest, bishop’s lace and wild carrot. Its royal moniker reputedly arose when the 18th century monarch, Queen Anne of England, pricked her finger and spilled a drop of blood onto the white lace she was darning, representing the tiny, solo reddish-purple flower visible at the center of the umbrel.


EarthSky News: Before dawn, Orion the Hunter

I noticed on your site that Orion returned to the predawn sky in late July. You called it the ‘ghost of the summer dawn.’ Due to cloudy skies and other conditions, I was not able to see it until August 6. When will Orion return to the evening sky?

Patheos-Pagan: Phoenix Rising: When The Cauldron’s A-Rocking, Ceridwen’s Come Knocking

Ah, Ceridwen. The badass biddy who suffers no fools and has no qualms about hitting you upside the head with a clue by four should you refuse to listen to what she has to say. Her love is of the tough variety, but it is love nonetheless. Ceridwen’s cauldron has been busy of late. Have you noticed?


Inner Journey:


“Employ the power of positive quitting. Most of us view quitting as something negative, but it’s not. ‘Winners never quit,’ we’re told, when, in reality, winners quit all the time: choosing to stop doing things that aren’t creating the results they desire. When you quit all the things that aren’t working for you, when you quit tolerating all the negative things that hold you back, you’ll create a positive ‘charge’ in your life as well as create the space in your life for more positive experiences.”
— Jim Allen

“I like thinking of possibilities. At any time, an entirely new possibility is liable to come along and spin you off in an entirely new direction. The trick, I’ve learned, is to be awake to the moment.”
— Doug Hall

“Persons and societies do not submit passively to surroundings and events. They make choices as to the places where they live and the activities in which they engage — choices based on what they want to be, to do and to become. Furthermore, persons and societies often change their goals and ways; they can even retrace their steps and start in a new direction if they believe they are on a wrong course. Thus, whereas animal life is prisoner of biological evolution which is essentially irreversible, human life has the wonderful freedom of social evolution which is rapidly reversible and creative. Wherever human beings are concerned, trend is not destiny.”
— Rene Dubos

A Note from the Universe 

Did you know that if you get happy enough, you can actually hear colors and see music?

Paint without numbers? Eat desserts and lose weight? Spend money and have more?

Heal the sick? Feed the poor? Love unconditionally? And live forever?

If, you get happy enough.

I am,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom

“Leisure is the mother of Philosophy.”

-Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679)

Remember the “Leisure Suits” that were so popular in the 70’s? As if we needed the appropriate attire to lounge around in… It seems funny now, but it was so stylin’ then! But maybe the real point was that we didn’t necessarily need the suits, but we did, and do, need the leisure. In some strange way, that was brought to our attention. It might benefit us psychologically to “suit up” – whether it’s in our yoga pants or in our pajamas, to spend some time down time, some time to clear our minds so that we can open our minds to deep thought.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: Thr Magician

Be organized, stick to your personal routine, and don’t gloss over any steps if you want to get the results you have in mind. This could be a day better for practice than for performance. Do your best, be forgiving of yourself about any minor slip-ups, and have no regrets. You know what you’re already good at, so focus on that and glide through the day.
