Spirit Library: Energies Are Merging (a message from Kate Spreckley)
For some time now the energies of the Earth have retracted, which has given the planet time to rebuild and reorganise her evolving energies. With this New Moon phase there is a surge of Earth energy which is rising to the surface of the planet to merge with the incoming cosmic energy.

The Healing Medicine of Trees – Elder
by Susun Weed
ELDER is the last letter of the ogam alphabet (Ruis). It rarely attains tree status where it grows in North America, but it has taken me by surprise several times in Europe by the height to which it can grow (up to ten meters) and the tough bark it is capable of making.

Inner Journey: ON SELF-HONESTY
“No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself, and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be true.”
— Nathaniel Hawthorne
“You cannot fake a relationship and feel right with yourself or anyone else. Changing yourself to fit what you think other people want doesn’t work. Pretending to be someone other than yourself only broadens the distance between the person you are and the one with whom you’re trying to establish closeness.”
— Mary Manin Morrissey
“Just as surely as distress must follow self-deceit, healing must follow self-honesty.”
— Vernon Howard
“Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got.”
— Janis Joplin

No, besides more interest income.
Right! More laughter!

“Science is not to be regarded merely as a storehouse of facts to be used for material purposes, but as one of the great human endeavors to be ranked with arts and religion as the guide and expression of man’s fearless quest for truth.”
-Richard Arman Gregory (1864-1952)
Ah, science! It had a whole different meaning to me when I was in high school and had to memorize the periodic table. Now I look at science as these amazing discoveries that lead us to the truth. It’s not such a big leap from spirituality to science. We can see all of the miracles that exist under a microscope, or through a telescope. And right here we are living miracles, every moment. In the movie “What the Bleep Do We Know?” several scientists weigh in on the facts of our existence, and what is happening all around us, all the time.

Daily Tarot: The Lovers
The world may seem to be working overtime to baffle or confuse you, but you don’t have to take the bait. If you’re offered something that seems too perfectly tailored to your tastes or desires, it’s OK to be graciously skeptical. You can appear cautious rather than distrustful. Keep things simple today and minimize getting upset by torn or unsettled feelings.
