Inner Journey:


“There are two kinds of men who never amount to much: those who cannot do what they are told, and those who can do nothing else.”
— Cyrus H. Curtis

How do you relate to people in authority? Depending on your character and upbringing, you may react defensively or meekly to those you perceive to hold more power than you do.

Hierarchical power dissolves in the presence of authentic power. Your true personal power has nothing to do with status. It is determined by how attuned you are to all aspects of yourself and to the needs of others.

In any exchange with a person ‘in power,’ focus your attention on meeting your mutual needs and the relationship will be both equitable and fruitful.

“Compassion, caring, teaching, loving, and sharing your gifts, talents, and abilities are the gateways to power.”
— Jamie Sams

Daily Wisdom
May 19, 2020 

“A man is but the product of his thoughts; what he thinks, he becomes.”

-Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869-1948)

Do we think “good” thoughts? Or do we worry, and stress, and speculate? When we hold in mind where we want to go, we get there. Our mind finds ways to overcome the obstacles and make our thoughts, or our visions, a reality. We can elevate ourselves with our thinking.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Magician

You have a magic touch today. The right word or action at the right time can instantly turn things around and morph a challenge into an easy opportunity. This is not something to take for granted or to exploit, though. Use your power with a very light touch, if at all. It’s possible that a mere thought or unspoken intention could have influence.
