Inner Journey: OPEN TO THE NEW

“All the people we call ‘geniuses’ are men and women who somehow escaped having to put that curious, wondering child in themselves to sleep.”
— Barbara Sher

How willing are you to learn something new?
How open are you to new perspectives?

Only when we’re open can we really hear what’s being said or really see what’s happening or really experience the moment.

Openness demands that we be willing to move to places we’ve never been before. It asks us to continually challenge the foundations of our belief systems so we can test out new ideas. And to do that, we need to accept insecurity.

“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”
— Alvin Toffler

Daily Wisdom
April 28, 2021

Age
“I never feel age. If you have creative work, you don’t have age or time.”   -Louise Nevelson (1980)
In the spirit world, there is no time, so there is no age. When we lose our awareness of time, then we feel no age. We feel no burdens. We need to spend more time doing those things that make us so happy that we lost track of time. Creative work gives a lot of us that very feeling.

Daily Tarot: The Empress

Everything you touch or talk about today is going to get bigger, so be careful with your words and actions. While today will be easygoing and agreeable, a few days from now something you set in motion today may come back in a bigger form. Watch out for exaggeration, even about good things. Go light on the flattery, and even sincere compliments, since it all may become grander than you intend
