Daily Good: To Heal the Human Heart

Empathy is about finding echoes of another person in yourself.

  • Mohsin Hamid –

To Heal the Human Heart

The science of empathy is now one of the most celebrated subjects of psychological and neuro-psychological enquiry and it has the potential to transform human society in spectacular ways. For instance, if a human being’s central nervous system carries blueprints for empathy, and if the health and vitality of one’s empathy circuits depend on one’s environment from conception through adulthood, what does that mean about our moralistic judgments of good and evil, and of punishment and reward? This well-written piece on the latest findings on empathy and on its limitations offers some surprising and heartening answers. { read more }

EarthSky News: Jupiter at west quadrature on May 21

If you could look down on the solar system plane from above on May 21, 2021, you’d see that the sun, Earth and Jupiter form a 90 degree angle in space, with our planet Earth at the vertex of this angle. Astronomers say that Jupiter is at west quadrature at this juncture. That is, it’s 90 degree west of the sun. By definition, a superior planet – such as Jupiter – is said to be at west quadrature whenever it resides 90 degrees west of the sun on the sky’s dome.

Inner Journey: GIVING CHOICE

“Freedom of choice is more to be treasured than any possession earth can give.”
— David O. McKay

I want to choose the details of my life. Fortunately, I’ve come to appreciate how important it is to give others the freedom to choose their own paths.

None of us wants our choice robbed from us. I can’t know what’s best for anyone but me. So why give unsolicited advice to others and expect them to follow it?

“The truest characters of ignorance are vanity, and pride and arrogance.”
— Samuel Butler

“What man wants is simply independent choice, whatever that may cost and wherever it may lead.”
— Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Daily Wisdom
May 19, 2021

“Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting.”

-William Wordsworth (1770-1850)

We are in human form, but we are spiritual beings. We need to awaken to that, and remain aware of our spirituality. The body demands attention, and we must take good care of it. With a healthy body we are more free to learn and grow and experience more of the spiritual, more of ourselves

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Moon

You may be dwelling on your weakness or discomfort, and those things may be real enough, but take heart and know that these things are also temporary and are not going to last much longer. You underestimate or overlook your great powers of recovery and self-healing. You have too much love of life to be kept down for long. Give yourself a break and relax a bit.
