Elephant Journal: Confessions of the Feral: Deconstructing Myths for Wild Women.

For as long as I can remember, I have struggled with being a good girl.
I’m not very good at it.

I’ve got a rebel streak as wide, wild, and winding as the Yellowstone River, which I grew up next to, and my nature is much like the mountainous climate where I live—unpredictable. I like me this way.

Inner Journey: OPEN TO AWARENESS

“Mindfulness means moment-to-moment, non-judgmental awareness. It is cultivated by refining our capacity to pay attention, intentionally, in the present moment, and then sustaining that attention over time as best wecan. In the process, we become more in touch with our life as it is unfolding.”
— Myla & Jon Kabat-Zinn

Why do we want to become more aware?

If we remain unaware, we:
•repeat the past,
•remain stuck in relationships,
•live superficial, literal and one dimensional lives,
•lack experiences of love and beauty, and
•have limited connection to others and the universe.

With awareness, we are fully involved with life. Awareness is sensing deeply and sensitively for what really is. To do this, we need to approach the present as totally new. When we can be open and attentive in each moment, we begin to free ourselves fromthe conditioning of the past and the suffering that it so often brings.

“If moment by moment you can keep your mind clear then nothing will confuse you.”
— Sheng Yen

A Note from the Universe

A thought on the “hows”:

Just because you’re not to mess with them doesn’t mean you’re not to get busy doing all you can, with what you’ve got, from where you are.

The difference is in how you see what you do: you don’t do all you can with an eye to hitting a home run, but with an understanding that for each door you knock upon and every stone you turn over, you’re pitching the ball to me.

The more balls you pitch, the greater my options, and the farther the balls will sail.

Batter up,

The Universe

Morning
“It’s completely usual for me to get up in the morning, take a look around, and laugh out loud.”

-Barbara Kingsolver


Our attitude has everything to do with how the day goes for us. When we approach our activities with a sense of fun and light-heartedness, it affects our environment, and the people around us. Time passes by more quickly, and we enjoy ourselves so much more.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: Strength

Act with boldness, but not too much, and make this an easy and productive day. If something challenging or unexpected arises at work or with family, be receptive and stand your ground. Don’t push back until you know what it is you’re up against. Then if needed, give as well as you get. You can do this tactfully.
