Inner Journey: DARE TO RISK
“To try is to risk failure. But risk must be taken because the greatest hazard of life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing does nothing, has nothing, is nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, live, and love.”
— Leo Buscaglia
Daring to risk is an essential step to self empowerment. This is the key to breaking out of stuck thinking and behaviour. It is about breaking through the comfort zones and barriers. It is about experiencing new levels of mind and feelings. It is about experiencing more life.
“A life spent in making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.”
— George Bernard Shaw
“Only those who risk going too far can know how far they can go.”
— Unknown source
A Note from the Universe
In poll after poll we’ve discovered that perhaps the very best thing about being truly enlightened is possessing that rapturous feeling of wanting to explode out of your skin with absolute joy, letting rip a couple of, “Oh, Momma, Hallelujah!”s… yet… being able to contain yourself, without expressing so much as a hint of your ecstasy around those who just wouldn’t understand.
Just thought you’d like to know.
Oh, Momma, Hallelujah!

“We find what we search for – or, if we don’t find it, we become it.”
-Jessamyn West, Love Is Not What You Think, 1959
I think this is another way of saying “be careful what you wish for.” Let’s keep our “eye on the prize” and keep a look out for those things that make life so precious. Seek love, truth, beauty, wisdom, and peace – for one and for all

Daily Tarot: Wheel of Fortune
Restlessness and boredom could slow you down and take you off on some unintended tangent. If you can’t break free of the usual routine today, do what’s necessary and perhaps schedule more delicate tasks for another time when it will be easier to be precise and attend to details. Know your own limits and if possible don’t take on something that will only frustrate you. If you must, start slow.
