Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
-Robert Frost (1874-1963)

WE PROJECT OUR STRENGTHS
“Any situation that you find yourself in, is an outward reflection of your inner state of beingness.”
— El Morya
We have discussed that OUR WORLD MIRRORS WHO WE ARE BACK TO US. When we get upset by something outside of us, our reaction shows us that we have an inner wound to be healed.
Just as we can be unconscious of our wounds, we can also be unconscious of our strengths. If you are really drawn to the positive qualities in another person, you are being invited to own those same qualities in yourself.
“The people we are in relationship with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors reflecting their beliefs. So relationship is one of the most powerful tools for growth… if welook honestly at our relationships we can see so much about how we have created them.”
— Shakti Gawain
“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

“Poetry is music written for the human voice.”
-Mrs. Flowers, quoted by Maya Angelou
Just as songs are meant to be sung, poetry is meant to be recited. I love that there are poetry readings going on where we can gather and sit and listen to poetry. And isn’t it so romantic when your sweetheart reads a love poem to you? The words carry us away to a place beyond the mundane, where music plays, and flowers bloom, and all is right with the world.
Daily Tarot: The Fool
You may have the best of intentions today but it won’t be easy to stick to any of them. There’s a lot of randomness in the air and you won’t have very much control over anything. Don’t let this lull you into becoming thoughtless or not caring about what you’re doing. Do what you can and save some energy for tomorrow when things might be smoother.
