The world would be a much better place if the simplest acts of kindness were not so rare; if everyone would find more ways to spread positivity and joy—and who doesn’t need more of that in their life with the world in its current state?
The list I created below is just some examples of the most basic form of human decency that so many forget to do.

EarthSky News: See the Unicorn on dark January nights
Tonight, treat yourself to a visit with a mythical beast, the constellation Monoceros the Unicorn. It’s well placed for viewing in the January evening sky, but you’ll need a very dark sky to see it. Monoceros will be out nearly all night long. It’ll be higher up and easier to see in the later evening hour.

Inner Journey: BELIEVE YOU ARE A CREATOR
“Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and the universe is endlessly bountiful. Just put forth a clear enough request, and everything your heart desires must come to you.”
— Shakti Gawain
We hold the power to create whatever we desire. Our ability to manifest the changes we desire depends on the depth and passion of our beliefs and on the focus of our attention.
With this understanding, we, as individuals and as society, can design a whole new future for ourselves. Our challenge is to break free of society’s world view, to truly empower our imaginations to create brand new realities. It brings a whole new meaning to ‘vision.’
What do you passionately desire for your own life? For the planet?
“By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The non-existent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.”
— Nikos Kazantzakis

Do you realize that living the life of your dreams is not something you can do without me nor that I can do without you?
Awesome, and that the things I can do to make your dreams come true, you cannot? While the things you can do to make your dreams come true, I cannot?

Now, go do your things.
And I’ll do mine,
Today’s Recipe: One-Egg Egg Drop Soup
Trust me, one egg is enough to make a sumptuous Egg Drop Soup! The problem I find with egg drop soup recipes is that the timing for the egg drop is never right, so the egg never separates into true ribbons. My Chinese father taught me the trick to this soup, which I now pass to you!

“Think all you speak, but speak not all you think. Thoughts are your own; your words are so no more.”
-Patrick Delany (1686-1768)
Our words come from us, and go out into the world. Once they are said, we can’t take them back. Remember when we were little, our mother’s used to say: “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” If we speak impulsively, we may come to regret it. Our words carry weight, and when we think about what we are going to say, we can make better choices about how to say it so that it is received in the best possible light.

Daily Tarot: The World
Take your place in the World and be in your element all day long. Your practical mind and easy nature let you cruise through the regular maze that is daily life. If anything out of the ordinary arises, you’ll know instinctively how to approach it and resolve things to your satisfaction. Today may not be easy or effortless but it will be rich in success and approval – from yourself and probably others as well.
