Inner Journey: THERE’S LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS

“Each difficult moment has the potential to open my eyes and open my heart.”
— Myla Kabat-Zinn

“Even the most daring and accomplished people have undergone tremendous difficulty. In fact, the more successful they became, the more they attributed their success to the lessons learned during their most difficult times. Adversity is our teacher. When we view adversity as a guide towards greater inner growth, we will then learn to accept the wisdom our soul came into this life to learn.”
— Barbara Rose

“No matter what difficulty you are facing, it is coming from Divine Light to bring you to a higher place within. Write down every conceivable reason that this situation can contribute towards your growth. Write down every way this experience can possibly set the stage for serving to uplift others. When you are complete, and have come to the other side of this experience, you will then know ‘why’ it happened.”
— Barbara Rose

“The period of greatest gain in knowledge and experience is the most difficult period in one’s life.”
— Dalai Lama

Self-Determination
“Can’t nothin’ make your life work if you ain’t the architect.”

-Terry McMillan, 1989


The architect’s job is to come up with the plan, to lay out the blue prints. There are all these decisions to made, and you have to start somewhere. Once you’ve got a plan, then you can lay the foundation, the framework, the whole building can come together. With life, we’ve got to be the architect. We have to make the decisions that are going to make our life work the way we want it to. When we have self-determination the sky’s the limit!

Daily Tarot: The Tower

People may be expecting or needing you to be laid-back and easy to deal with but your own inclinations may make you seem more difficult and demanding. You may see yourself as just being direct while others consider you as being tactless. Save yourself a lot of grief and use extra care with your words and actions. If someone gets bent out of shape, try to catch it instantly and stop it as soon as you can.
