Spirit Library: Keep Afloat (a message from Kate Spreckley)

In our world dualistic thinking has governed our experience of life. As such our lives have been divided into opposites of light / dark, joy / sorrow, love / fear. We have had to know each side in order to explore and reestablish balance.

Daily Good: It Couldn’t Be Clearer

One planet, one experiment.

E.O. Wllson –

It Couldn’t Be Clearer

“Interrelatedness is one of Brian Swimme’s powers of the universe that I have been contemplating. I could have accompanied this particular exploration with any picture I have. Every flower, every leaf, every tree trunk, every mushroom is only here because of a web of relationships. With air, water, fungi, microbes, insects. With their fellow plants, the soil their roots penetrate, the beings growing on those roots, the slowly dissolving stone forming the soil. And they know they have these relationships. They smell each other, reach out to each other, signal each other, warn of danger. Trees nurture and protect their offspring. They send messages along savvy fungal networks. A seed won’t open its case unless it senses that its necessary cohorts for growth are in place. It will wait decades, even centuries, for that to happen.” { read more }

EarthSky News: Look for the legendary green flash

It’s not hard to see a green flash with the eye alone, when sky conditions are right, and when you’re looking toward a very clear and very distant horizon. That’s why those who live near an ocean tend to report green flashes most often. A sea horizon is the best place to see them.

Inner Journey: TIME TO BLOSSOM

“The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed, even strangled, by the voices of other people’s expectations.”
— Julia Cameron

Many of us unconsciously believe that we’re unworthy or defective. We adopted this belief very early in our lives when the people we looked up to disapproved of our demands, wishes and behaviours. We concluded that we had to learn to be good.

Unfortunately, ‘being good’ usually meant giving up our own differences or uniqueness. We learned that we might get the love we wanted if we acted and felt like others wanted us to.

If we seek true joy and connection with life, we now need to remove these artificial masks and express our deep authentic nature.

“For all those years you’ve protected the seed. It’s time to become the beautiful flower.”
— Stephen C. Paul


A Note from the Universe

Looking for the gift in a situation, typically means there’s a belief that the situation’s outcome could have been better.

And thinking that an outcome could have been better, only happens when there’s a belief that one’s joy could have been greater had there been a different outcome.

And thinking that one’s joy hinges on the outcome of any time-space occurrence, almost always means that some cool cat somewhere, has ever so briefly forgotten not to interpret events with their physical senses alone, that all the elements (then and now) are lining up in their favor, and that their own happy feet needn’t have missed a beat.

Daily Wisdom
April 12, 2021

“Power consists to a large extent in deciding what stories will be told.”

-Carolyn Heilbrun (1988)

This is where the power of the press comes in. Not just what stories will be told, but how they will be told. Words carry weight. The same holds true in other areas of life. What are our leaders telling us, and what are they leaving out? We exercise our power by becoming more informed, and by voting.

-Lissa Coffey
