“Everything is made of light; everything is alive. The Great Mystery of life has little to do with intelligence. The universe is not an intellectual process. The intellect is helpful; but our hearts are the wiser partof ourselves.”
— Mellen-Thomas Benedict

Heart is a word that refers to many different levels of our being. Essentially, it is the love aspect of soul, capable of making direct, intuitive contact. Soul love is not emotional; it is highly impersonal and intelligent, capable of grasping the essenceof someone or something without any projection on our part.

Appreciation significantly turns on the heart. Appreciation is not an emotion that arises spontaneously, but a soul quality we can choose. The more often we choose to be appreciative, the easier this choice becomes and the more frequently our heart opensto give and receive love.

“If you open your heart, love opens your mind.”
— Charles John Quarto

Daily Wisdom
May 31, 2021

“What we must decide is perhaps how we are valuable, rather than how valuable we are.”

-F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940)

When we learn about the world we learn about our self. Any knowledge, any discovery, teaches us more about who we are. And then we can decide just how we can help, how we can serve, how we can be of value to the world.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Lovers

Preconceived notions and old ideas could make it hard to deal with all the new and different situations and requests that could crop up today. It’s possible that you’re not actually being presented choices that must be made now or soon. Just as likely you’re being tested or tempted. It may be hard to resist a knee jerk reaction or two. Avoid committing to anything definite if you can.
