Look all around thee! How the Spring advances!
New life is playing through the gay, green trees
See how in yonder bower the light leaf dances
To the bird’s tread and the quivering breeze.

Spirit Library: Integration (a message from Kate Spreckley)

It is becoming very clear that the turmoil unfolding in the world today is a sign that change is needed. With the challenges facing us now it is obvious that a new vision of how we can live together in a new way is needed. Expanded consciousness, which integrates the spiritual with the physical, the heart with the mind and the soul with the human is now essential.

Daily Good: How Does A Heart of Service Respond to These Times?

“Coronavirus has uprooted the fabric of our lives. How does a heart of service respond to an unknown cause and how do we build resilience when we can’t be physically together? Uncertain times raise significant questions that can architect a new story for our future. Carbon emissions have dropped dramatically, but xenophobia is rising. Nursing homes are being evacuated, only to bring elders home to their families. Shopping malls are empty but family meals are on the rise. Awakening of kindness is pervasive, but the inequality of human suffering is evident. Borders are still present, but the boundaries of our shared humanity are getting blurry. Yes, undercurrents of fear are everywhere, but so are prayers. Jack Kornfield recently shared, “The virus isn’t happening to us; it’s happening for us.” Last week 90 individuals from across the ServiceSpace ecosystem circled online to explore the call of these times. { read more }

Inner Journey:

OPENING THE HEART

“Everything is made of light; everything is alive. The Great Mystery of life has little to do with intelligence. The universe is not an intellectual process. The intellect is helpful; but our hearts are the wiser part of ourselves.”
— Mellen-Thomas Benedict

Heart is a word that refers to many different levels of our being. Essentially, it is the love aspect of soul, capable of making direct, intuitive contact. Soul love is not emotional; it is highly impersonal and intelligent, capable of grasping the essence of someone or something without any projection on our part.

Appreciation significantly turns on the heart. Appreciation is not an emotion that arises spontaneously, but a soul quality we can choose. The more often we choose to be appreciative, the easier this choice becomes and the more frequently our heart opens to give and receive love.

“If you open your heart, love opens your mind.”
— Charles John Quarto

A Note from the Universe
Sometimes when you look back at the trail you’ve tread, it’s actually hard to believe you were as scared or confused or uncertain as you were, yet still you rocked it.

I say, remember that next time you feel scared, confused, or uncertain.

You’re on fire,

Mystery
“The more unintelligent a man is, the less mysterious existence seems to him.”

-Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)
For concrete evidence of mystery, we could go to a library and count up how many topics we know nothing about. Even the most scholarly people, experts in their fields, understand that there is more for them to learn. The world just operates that way. It is changing and growing and evolving just as we are – so there will always be some mystery for us to happen upon. Existence is big, and it is ours to discover.

-Lissa Coffey
