Blinking at the April weather;

Daily Dream Meaning: Costume

1. If you were wearing the costume, you’re hiding your true self from someone – or perhaps from everyone in your circle. If you take it off, something will cause you to drop the façade very soon.
2. If you are only one amongst many wearing a costume, especially if some of the others were children, this portends an amazing and totally unexpected – but nonetheless favorable – turn of events.

Daily Good: The Art of Waiting

“”Time is the substance I am made of,” Borges wrote in his spectacular confrontation with time, “Time is a river which sweeps me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger which destroys me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire which consumes me, but I am the fire.” We are indeed creatures of time who live with it and in it, on the picketed patch of spacetime we have each been allotted. But if time is the foundational baseboard of our being, what happens to the structure of our lives in a culture of doing? That is what Jason Farman explores in Delayed Response: The Art of Waiting.” Maria Popova shares more in this post.

The mysterious zodiacal light is often visible after dusk or before dawn from the tropical regions of the world.

Inner Journey:

LIVING THE ADVENTURE

“I do not accept any absolute formulas for living. No preconceived code can see ahead to everything that can happen in a man’s life. As we live, we grow and our beliefs change. They must change. So I think we should livewith this constant discovery. We should be open to this adventure in heightened awareness of living. We should stake our whole existence on our willingness to explore and experience.”
— Martin Buber

Meaning
“The need to find meaning in the universe is as real as the need for trust and for love, for relations with other human beings.”

-Margaret Mead (1972)
It’s the age-old question: What is the meaning of life? Living this quest is as natural as breathing. It’s how we learn and grow, all a part of the process of life. We reach out to each other, for comfort, for love, for definition. And many times it is in our relationships that we find the meaning that we seek.

-Lissa Coffey

The Magician encourages you to take positive action. Once your mind is made up, it’s hard to change it. Determination and creativity are your most admirable qualities now, and they will help you reach your desired goal. You have confidence in your corner, which takes a lot of the anxiety out of making the first move, taking things to the next level, or generally excelling at all things related to love.
