Wise Woman Herbal: Meeting the Soul Spirit Activities of a Burdock
by Anne-Marie Fryer Wiboltt

There is a difference between entering into an intimate relationship with the plant and utilizing plants as nourishment, or using a plant for healing purposes.

Daily Dream Meaning: Child

A symbol of innocence.
1. If you were the child, you need to get in touch with your own innocence. If you, as the child, were in trouble, you need to go beyond your innocence and acknowledge the ways of the world. Everything is NOT all sweetness and light!
2. If you were watching children playing, this is a sign of success and happiness, both in your personal and professional life.

Daily Good: Teaching & Learning from the Heart in Troubled Times

“The current moment calls for moral ferocity. We should not sleep well at night when we know others are suffering. We need to raise our voices with clarity and channel our anger into protest and resistance. Ferocity itself, though, holds danger. Let’s not forget that some of the worst perpetrators of evil have often claimed to act in the name of the good, or God, or the national interest, or a future utopia. By claiming the moral high ground, and labeling our opponents misguided, we run the risk of doing great harm in the name of good. I suggest that we balance our moral ferocity with humility and tenderness.” Rabbi Ariel Burger, an author, artist and long-time student and friend of Elie Wiesel shares more in this timely essay.{ read more }

Elephant Journal: Heartbroken? Talk to the Trees. No, really, it Helps.

I decided I wanted to sit on the grass.
Sheltered from the sun by my car, I sat, staring at this cluster of trees.

I was grateful for this moment of reprieve from the excruciating thoughts that had been swirling around and accosting me in my head for the past few days.

EarthSky News: Moon, Venus and Taurus March 28 and 29

These next several evenings – March 28, 29 and 30, 2020 – use the waxing crescent moon and the dazzling planet Venus to locate the constellation Taurus the Bull. The moon and Venus pop out almost immediately after sunset, lighting up the western evening twilight. Given clear skies, they’ll be hard to miss, because the moon and Venus rank as the 2nd-brightest and 3rd-brightest celestial bodies, respectively, after the sun.

Inner Journey:

AWARENESS

“Relative to the level of awareness that is possible for us, our ordinary state of consciousness is as far from a direct experience of reality as sleep is from waking consciousness.”
— Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson

“The thought ‘I exist’ is not the same thing as the awareness of one’s own existence. … Thought is not the same thing as consciousness.”
— Jacob Needleman

A person asked Buddha:
“Are you a God?”
Buddha’s reply was
“No.”
“Are you an Angel?”
“No.”
“Then what are you?”
“I am Awake.”

A Note from the Universe 

In the short run, there are two types of people who live in darkness,  those who are desperate to emerge and those who are desperate to stay.

When you finally realize that part of the reason you chose this lifetime was to shine your light for the first type, you’ll stop worrying about what the second type thinks of you.

Shine your little heart out,

The Universe

Greatness
“There is no greatness where simplicity, goodness and truth are absent.”

-Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910)
Is goodness a prerequisite for greatness? I think so. Greatness is different from power, from fame. It’s something that is not completely defined, but is instantly recognized. It cuts across lines of age, race and gender. We all have the potential for greatness.

-Lissa Coffey
