Daily Good: Instructions on Not Giving Up

Believing means liberating the indestructible element in oneself, or, more accurately, liberating oneself, or, more accurately, being indestructible, or, more accurately, being.

  • Franz Kafka –

Instructions on Not Giving Up

“It was a hard winter. My whole body raged against it. But right as the world feels uninhabitable something miraculous happens: the trees come back. I wanted to praise that ordinary thing as a way of bringing myself back to.” Listen to Ada Limon share her poem “Instructions on Not Giving Up.” { read more }

Be The Change

Reflect with a close friend or family member, on where you’ve each encountered the indestructible along life’s path.

Spirituality, for me, is a lot like food, sharing it with others, discussing what went into it, and keeping note on my own additions. Just like food, I don’t believe spirituality should be limited to a specialty right out of the gate.

A Note from the Universe

Do you know what happens to wildlife when left alone from intellectual minds? It thrives, because thriving is its default setting. Just look at a forest.

And do you know what happens to wildlife when given just a little direction by intellectual minds? It still thrives, because thriving is its default setting. Just look at a rose garden.

And do you know what happens to wildlife when there is too much thinking? Yeah, what wildlife?

Wild thing,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom

Letters
“Why is it that you can sometimes feel the reality of people more keenly through a letter than face to face?”

-Anne Morrow Lindbergh, 1971


Sometimes we allow ourselves to open up more when we write out our feelings. We have time to think more, to choose our words carefully, to really express what it is we want to say. And when we read someone’s letter, we have the time to absorb the words, to give it thought and consideration.

Daily Tarot: Strength

Although it may be a peaceful day, that calm may all be on the surface. If dissatisfaction or anger is brewing at depth, there could be thoughts or fantasies of revenge or anger to fuel the bad feelings. Face everyone and everything with great care and respect. You have more than enough strength to deal with whatever comes up. Obviously, don’t bait or antagonize anyone. Kindness wins out
