Spirit Library: Inner Turbulence (a message from Kate Spreckley)

We are moving through some heavy energy which has us feeling restless, uncertain, unsure, and exhausted. The tension created by this energy is shaking the ground beneath us and pushing to the surface a collective darkness that needs to be cleared and released. Change is being demanded however we are advised not to be impulsive or rash at this time.

Inner Journey: FINDING CONTENTMENT

“When the sun rises, I go to work. When the sun goes down, I take my rest. I dig the well from which I drink. I farm the soil which yields my food. I share creation. Kings can do no more.”
— Chinese proverb

Do you sense the peace and contentment that can come from an appreciation of one’s place in the cosmos?

How do we get there with the complexities and pressures of our current lifestyles? Perhaps it’s a matter of becoming aware of what we truly have as opposed to what our egos believe we need. If we look closely, we may find that our ego ‘needs’ are just desires.

When you find yourself longing for something, stop and ask, “What is missing from my life? Is it a need? What are the essential qualities of what I seek? How can I experience that now?”

“If we have not quiet in our minds, outward comfort will do no more for us than a golden slipper on a gouty foot.”
— John Bunyan

“Try to be like the turtle — at ease in your own shell.”
— Bill Copeland

A Note from the Universe

For every unexpected bump, turn, or squiggle on the path of life you have two choices:

Accept it as if you yourself had meticulously planned it to take you even higher into the light, while being watched by 10,000 cheering angels who love you so much, you’re all they ever sing about.

Or, accept it, kicking and screaming, as if it were some freak accident that had befallen you by chance that might keep you from knowing happiness.

I know which I would choose,

The Universe

Excellence
“Excellence is not an act but a habit. The things you do the most are the things you will do best.”

-Marva Collins (1987)


It would be easy if talent was all it took for us to achieve excellence. But it doesn’t work that way. On “American Idol” there are many singers with talent. But the ones who have the most experience really stand out. The experience of singing for people over and over again hones their skills, and when the competition day comes, their excellence shows. We even see how week after week, each of the singers seems to get better. They’re in an environment where they are focusing their energies and spending their time to cultivating excellence.
