Everyone suddenly burst out singing;
And I was filled with such delight
As prisoned birds must find in freedom
Winging wildly across the white
Orchards and dark green fields; on; on; and out of sight.
-Siegfried Sassoon (1886-1967)

Daily Good: Humanity’s Wake Up Call

“The rapid spread of novel coronavirus has prompted government, business, and civil society to take dramatic action–canceling events large and small, restricting travel, and shutting down major segments of the economy on which nearly all of us depend. It is a demonstration of our ability, when the imperative is clear, for deep and rapid global cooperation and change at a previously unimaginable speed and scale.There is an obvious desire to protect ourselves and our loved ones. But we are also seeing something more as communities mobilize to address the crisis–a sense of mutual responsibility, born of a recognition that we are ultimately bound to a common fate.” David Korten shares more.{ read more }

MNN: Shinrin-yoku: A deep dive into forest bathing
Even indoor plants can have a positive effect on your mental health.

A friend from France once said the best lunch in Paris is a baguette, cheese, a bottle of wine and a park bench. She didn’t know it, but she had hit on the concept of a preventative form of nature therapy called shinrin-yoku, which was introduced half-a-world-away in Japan in 1982.

Inner Journey:

GIVING CHOICE

“Freedom of choice is more to be treasured than any possession earth can give.”
— David O. McKay

I want to choose the details of my life. Fortunately, I’ve come to appreciate how important it is to give others the freedom to choose their own paths.

None of us wants our choice robbed from us. I can’t know what’s best for anyone but me. So why give unsolicited advice to others and expect them to follow it?

“The truest characters of ignorance are vanity, and pride and arrogance.”
— Samuel Butler

“What man wants is simply independent choice, whatever that may cost and wherever it may lead.”
— Fyodor Dostoyevsky

A Note from the Universe
Invariably, when big dreams come true, and I mean BIG, there is a total metamorphosis of one’s life. Thoughts change, words change, decisions are made differently. Gratitude is tossed about like rice at a wedding. Priorities are rearranged and optimism soars. Yeah, those folks can be really annoying.

You could have guessed all of that, huh? But would you have guessed that these changes invariably come about before, not after, the big dream’s manifestation?

Woohooooooo,

Mystery
“No object is mysterious. The mystery is your eye.”

-Elizabeth Bowen, 1936
Like beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so is mystery. The questions we ask when we observe something are all our own. What is going on in our mind’s eye? What definition are we giving to an object? What emotion are we attaching to it? And the miracle is that we can see and perceive an object! It’s this whole process that is mysterious, and beautiful
-Lissa Coffey
