Nature, in her unfailing exquisiteness, shows us the power of maturity. She has grown through so much to be able to bear her fruits and share the gifts of her completion with the world. Courage is to follow nature’s example, despite the fact that to grow older in our society too often means to be disregarded and unseen.

Inner Journey: WHAT IS LOVE?
“When mystics use the word love, they use it very carefully — in the deeply spiritual sense, where to love is to know; to love is to act. If you really love, from the depths of your Consciousness, that love gives you a native wisdom. You perceive the needs of others intuitively and clearly, with detachment from any personal desires; and you know how to act creatively to meet those needs, dexterously surmounting any obstacle that comes in the way. Such is the immense, driving power of love.”
— Eknath Easwaran
“Therefore, when I say that ‘I love,’ it is not I who love, but in reality Love who acts through me. Love is not so much something I do as something that I am. Love is not a doing but a state of being – a relatedness, a connectedness to another mortal, an identification with her or him that simply flows within me and through me, independent of my intentions or my efforts.”
— Robert A. Johnson
“When you are aware that you are the force that is Life, anything is possible. Miracles happen all the time, because those miracles are performed by the heart. The heart is in direct communion with the human soul, and when the heart speaks, even with the resistance of the head, something inside you changes; your heart opens another heart, and true love is possible.”
— Don Miguel Ruiz

“Emotion is the moment when steel meets flint and a spark is struck forth, for emotion is the chief source of consciousness. There is no change from darkness to light or from inertia to movement without emotion.”
-Carl G. Jung (1875-1961)
What would life be like without emotion? I would think it would be rather dull and boring. One way we judge a good movie is if it engages our emotions. Do we care about the characters? Are we caught up in the action? Life is like that, too. We remember moments by the emotions we feel at the time. The joy of holding a newborn baby. The despair over the loss of a loved one. The feeling of accomplishment after running a marathon. These emotions show us that we are alive

Daily Tarot: The Moon
You may be dwelling on your weakness or discomfort, and those things may be real enough, but take heart and know that these things are also temporary and are not going to last much longer. You underestimate or overlook your great powers of recovery and self-healing. You have too much love of life to be kept down for long. Give yourself a break and relax a bit
