Elephant Journal: Learning to Be Alone: 3 Practices for Finding Peace in Solitude
I have always struggled to find “my tribe.”
For most of my life, the people I’ve considered my best friends were very different than who I was at my core.
I joined Buddhist meditation communities, went on yoga retreats around the world, joined hiking groups, and embraced solo travel, but I always struggled to feel like I fit in or belonged in any group.

Basic Tarot Card Spreads for Beginners
Inner Journey: LIVE IN RELAXATION
“It would be glorious to see mankind at leisure for once. It is nothing but work, work, work.”
— Henry David Thoreau
Is relaxation possible only when we’re not working? No. With awareness and practice, we can be relaxed no matter what we are doing. In fact, when we work in a relaxed state, our productivity increases as our effort decreases.
For true relaxation, we need to connect with our bodies — to consciously and intentionally become aware of tension and release it.
“Anxiety breaks a man’s backbone.”
— Hebrew proverb
“Don’t hurry, don’t worry. You’re only here for a short visit. So be sure to stop and smell the flowers.”
— Walter Hagen
A Note from the Universe
That’s right. This is a dream.
You’re still asleep. Any minute now, an elephant might appear behind you wearing a pink tutu and tennis shoes. Or maybe the phone will ring, and it’ll be Abraham Lincoln to ask why you’re late for the ball. Or perhaps Oprah Winfrey is down the hall, live audience in tow, about to introduce you as her new favorite author. Anything can happen in a dream, anything, without regard to the past, without regard to logic, and you never have to figure out the “hows.”
Learn from your dreams, because the stuff of time and space is no different. Forget your past. Pitch the logic. And drop the cursed hows.
Today’s Recipe: Ranch Chicken Tacos

“Regrets are as personal as fingerprints.”
-Margaret Culkin Banning, 1958
Regret is personal because it really affects the one who is going through it. And we each experience regret in a different way. Some regrets are offered up with an apology, others eat away at a person. They can be big or small regrets – but we each feel them in a different way. Since we are here to learn and grow, it would be difficult to go through this life without any regrets. As long as we recognize that we are where we are because of everything –what we regret and what we don’t – then we will continue to move along the path, learning and growing all the way,

Daily Tarot: Temperance
Pace yourself today and get more done than you might imagine as the day begins. It’s all right to be tired from time to time. It doesn’t have to cripple all your plans for the day. Maintain a sensible balance, remember to eat healthy, take a short break once and a while, and don’t aim too high. There’s plenty of work to be done that you can handle with ease.
