Inner Journey: WHO ARE YOU?

“Please… tell me who you are and what you want. And if you think those are simple questions, keep in mind that most people live their entire lives without arriving at an answer.”
— Gary Zukav

How deeply can you answer this question? Please realize that you are the only one who can answer it. No one else can tell you who you are. You must discover this for yourself. And the challenge of knowing ourselves is no easy task.

We hope this question excites rather than intimidates you. There’s so much more to you than you know at present! Isn’t this intriguing? Perhaps it’s time to go exploring.

“Mysterious and intimidating to contemplate, the human brain is the most complex thing there is and the most difficult task it can undertake is to understand itself.”
— David Noonan

“I don’t think God cares where we were graduated or what we did for a living. God wants to know who we are. Discovering this is the work of the soul – it is our true life’s work.”
— Bernie Siegel

A Note from the Universe

Try pretending that all you now believe to be real, is not. And that all you wish to be real, is. If only for a few minutes each day.

Then, try acting like all you wish to be real already is real. With just a word here, a sentence there, or some little demonstration. If only in private.

Before long, you won’t even remember if what you used to believe was real or just a dream.

I’m pretending you already do this stuff whenever you want change,

The Universe
“Gazing up at the stars, for the first time, the first, I laid my heart open to the benign indifference of the universe.”

-Albert Camus (1913-1960)


The universe is vast, indifferent and impartial. It can’t play favorites because it doesn’t recognize the separateness of any particular individual. We’re all in this together, equally. We see the same stars; we feel the same sun

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: The High Priestess

Be inconspicuous if you can, stay out of your own way, and see how many things go right all by themselves. Real luck is looking for you today, but you can chase it away by trying to have too much control over everything. This is not a day to micromanage. Rather, listen to your hunches, and don’t demand solid answers or too many facts or figures.
