It is sometimes known as The Tree Of Life, and much of the meaning of the Yew tree surrounds ideas of life, death, and resurrection.

MBG: 4 Ways To Practice Active Meditation If You Can’t Sit Still

You want to meditate. You know it is good for you. You’ve heard about all the benefits, from a calmer mind to less stress. But for some reason you just can’t seem to sit still. Maybe you don’t think you have time or you’re a little fidgety, or maybe you want something more tangible to focus on, whatever the reason, sometimes meditation can feel a little, well, passive.

MNN: Knitted anatomy kits offer cruelty-free dissections

Vermont-based knitter’s woolly animal dissections are much cuddlier than the real deal.

Any student who’s ever been through an anatomy lab can remember the sights, sounds and smells of animal dissection. The flash of innards, crunch of bone, and the eye-watering stench of formaldehyde combine to make for one unpleasant experience.

EarthSky News: Watch Capella flashing red and green

This evening, check out one of the flashiest stars in the sky. It’s so bright that every year in northern autumn, we get questions from people in the Northern Hemisphere who see a bright star twinkling with red and green flashes. It’s found low in the northeastern sky at nightfall as seen from Northern Hemisphere locations. That star is likely Capella, which is actually a golden star.

Inner Journey: 


“If you expect the best, you will be the best. Learn to use one of the most powerful laws in this world; change your mental habits to belief instead of disbelief. Learn to expect, not to doubt. In so doing, you bring everything into the realm of possibility.”
— Dr. Norman Vincent Peale

Stop and be aware! Have you been thinking about what you want or what you don’t want?

It’s so easy to lock our minds onto problems rather than opening to receive solutions. But what we think is what we get. This is so important! If we continually focus on problems and negatives, that’s where we’ll stay.

“No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.”
— Helen Keller

A Note from the Universe

“Men love to wonder, and that is the seed of our science.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

Emerson always states it so well. Wonder is that “what if” that spurs us on to progress. It is the seed of science, but also the seed of creativity. We come up with ideas before we can make them into a reality – and those ideas come from wonder. Let’s make it a point to spend some time just wondering today.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Emperor:
Kindness will take you very far today. It’s not a show of weakness or inferiority to engage in that random act of kindness. Think of it as acting out of generosity of spirit. The bigger your heart today, the more respect and cooperation will come your way. Make sure your kindness is genuine and from a genuine place. Then you’re virtually unassailable.
