Spirit Library: Purging & Purification (a message from Kate Spreckley)

With a definite increase in the energy the current pace shows no sign of slowing down. If we are to establish a new way of being and a new reality the old structures and programs, which uphold the old world, need to be dismantled.

ThoughtCo: Litha Prayers

Midsummer is the time when we celebrate the bounty of the earth and the power of the sun. Our fields are flourishing, fruits are blossoming on the trees, herb bushes are fragrant and full of life. The sun is at its highest point in the sky, and it has bathed the earth in its warmth, heating up the soil so that when autumn rolls around, we’ll have a rich and bountiful harvest.

Daily Good: Mother Culture

“How does a whale find meaning in life? The question that will take us far from our comfort zone. At eight a.m. we are already traveling over deep ocean. Our thirty-foot boat, an open one, is crowded with gear, four assistants who traffic in curiosity and adventure, our huge dreadlocked Caribbean captain Dave Fabien, plus Shane Gero. Plus me. We seek a classic sea monster: the sperm whale, Jonah-slurping Leviathan of the Bible, catastrophic smasher of the ship Essex, Ahab-maddening table-turning star quarry of Moby-Dick. In myth, real life, and fiction, this is the whale that looms largest in our psyches. To that almost-never-glimpsed being, so famed for rage, the world’s largest creature with teeth we now seek the closest possible approach. For the next several weeks I hope, with Shane’s tutelage, to narrow the gap between us.” Carl Safina shares more in this piece. { read more }

EarthSky News: See Dragon’s Eyes on summer evenings

Tonight, find the Dragon’s Eyes. For years, I’ve glanced up in the north at this time of year and spied the two stars marked on today’s chart, Rastaban and Eltanin in the constellation Draco. They’re noticeable because they’re relatively bright and near each other.

Patheos-Pagan: Wood Sorrel: An Edible Weed and a Gentle Spirit Friend

Common Wood Sorrel or Oxalis stricta is an amazing weed friend to have. It is a friendly sort, the kind of plant that children love, and parents love too. There’s no easier way to get kids to eat their vegetables than to have them discover “sour plant” and nom it up.

Inner Journey:

APPLY WHAT YOU KNOW

“Knowledge of any kind … brings about a change in awareness from where it is possible to create new realities.”
— Deepak Chopra

As we evolve, we handle knowledge in different ways. We tend to move through these stages:
• We are unaware.
• We become aware of facts, data, information.
• We comprehend meaning from the facts.
• We can personally apply the information in our lives.
• We have wisdom – enlightened, we can lovingly apply our knowledge to world affairs.
• We live in truth.

How have you personally experienced a shifting of applying knowledge from one level to the next?

“More important than finding the teacher is finding and following the truth of the teaching….”
— Sogyal Rinpoche

“There can be no knowledge without emotion. We may be aware of a truth, yet until we have felt its force, it is not ours. To the cognition of the brain must be added the experience of the soul.”
— Arnold Bennett

A Note from the Universe
Well, enlightenment is kind of like flying for the first time without wings.

Of course, there’s the exhilaration, the happiness, and the intoxicating sense of freedom that’s almost indescribable.

But there’s also the subtle shock at what you now see as the inevitability of your accomplishment. The wonderment of how you hadn’t seen this so clearly before, mingled with acceptance. And the dim recognition that it’s part of some distant agreement you once made.

And, at last, as you come to your senses and finally think to gaze below, upon the tiny jewel you’ve called home for so long, you’re struck with a jolt as you see it so magically and effortlessly suspended—floating—in space, and realize, for the first time, that even there you were flying all along.

You soar,

The Universe

Individuality

“A child develops individuality long before he develops taste.”

-Erma Bombeck, 1971
Life is funny – and people are funny – isn’t great that we can laugh at ourselves? We all go through ages and stages – and somehow we make it through. Our individuality shines through the more we learn and grow.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Devil

You don’t want to spend the whole day trying to swim upstream. Work on your self-control and don’t let anyone or anything lure you into overreacting or flying out of control. Be practical and don’t get in your own way. You can have your silly fun later, and fantasize your revenge, at home in private with those who love you no matter what you do or say.
