Spirit Library: Birthing a New Expression of Self (a message from Kate Spreckley)
Change is occurring and to withstand the external chaos created by this change we must connect with our inner world, the world of our soul. When we do so we come to understand that our consciousness is continually expanding beyond the confines of time and space gathering the insights, wisdom and guidance we need to break free from the mould of our old life.

I can’t remember a time our summer days didn’t include trips to the local rock shop out near the Royal Gorge Bridge in Canon City, Colorado.

Inner Journey: ORDINARY CAN BE AWESOME
“Everything in life can be nourishing. Everything can bless us, but we’ve got to be there for the blessing to occur. Being present with quality is a decision we are invited to make each day.”
— MacRina Wiederkehr
Spirit is not only found in holy places, prayer and meditation, yoga and retreats. It is everywhere — in your relationships, your work, your daily chores, in nature … if you are willing to connect deeply with your environment.
Open to connect with something and you open to its essence, its purpose and meaning. There are other dimensions of reality below what we normally see and hear. Open to the mystery.
“We live in a world of theophanies. Holiness comes wrapped in the ordinary. There are burning bushes all around you. Every tree is full of angels. Hidden beauty is waiting in every crumb. Life wants to lead you from crumbs to angels, but this can happen only if you are willing to unwrap the ordinary by staying with it long enough to harvest its treasure.”
— Macrina Wiederkehr
A Note from the Universe
If you want it, I got it.
I got it! So why look elsewhere? To others? To the things of time and space? Aren’t we one?
Yes. Do your earthly things. Do all of them. Move with your dreams. Not because of what you may or may not achieve, but because you love life… because you’ll thereby exponentially increase the opportunities I have to share what’s ours… and because you can.

December 2, 2020
“I hope that is the keystone of the arch of my teachings – allowing a place for every man’s personality, idiosyncrasy.”
What a varied and wonderful world we live in! Each person is so unique, with so much to offer. We are each here with purpose. We can learn from each other. We can help each other. Thank goodness for diversity!

Daily Tarot: The Lovers
The world may seem to be working overtime to baffle or confuse you, but you don’t have to take the bait. If you’re offered something that seems too perfectly tailored to your tastes or desires, it’s OK to be graciously skeptical. You can appear cautious rather than distrustful. Keep things simple today and minimize getting upset by torn or unsettled feelings.
