Daily Good: Late Migrations: A Jeweled Patchwork of Nature and Culture

“The 112 essays in Renkl’s first book, Late Migrations: A Natural History of Love and Loss, range from seven lines to just over four pages in length.

We experience the continual realization that there are no others, ’cause we are all in the same boat. We are all made of the same stardust.

Inner Journey:

OPPORTUNITY

“We are continually faced with great opportunities which are brilliantly disguised as unsolvable problems.”
— Margaret Mead

“A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.”
— Francis Bacon

“What is opportunity, and when does it knock? It never knocks. You can wait a whole lifetime, listening, hoping, and you will hear no knocking. None at all. You are opportunity, and you must knock on the door leading to your destiny. You prepare yourself to recognize opportunity, to pursue and seize opportunity as you develop the strength of your personality, and build a self-image with which you are able to live — with your self-respect alive and growing.”
— Maxwell Maltz

Vegetarianism
“It is a part of the destiny of the human race, in its gradual improvement, to leave off eating animals, as surely as the savage tribes have left off eating each other when they came into contact with the more civilized.”

-Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)

There are many reasons for choosing a vegetarian lifestyle. Here is just one: As we’re on this spiritual path, and begin to assimilate higher knowledge, we lose sight of separation. We experience more and more the “oneness” of the universe. It seems only a natural extension of our spiritual growth to adopt habits that allow ourselves to express more love and compassion for the world of which we are a part.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Lovers

Preconceived notions and old ideas could make it hard to deal with all the new and different situations and requests that could crop up today. It’s possible that you’re not actually being presented choices that must be made now or soon. Just as likely you’re being tested or tempted. It may be hard to resist a knee jerk reaction or two. Avoid committing to anything definite if you can.
