EarthSky News: M17 Is The Omega Nebula

The Omega Nebula – aka Messier 17 or M17 – is barely visible to the unaided eye on a dark, moonless night. To see it, it’s best to use binoculars or low power on a telescope. The Omega Nebula is very near another prominent nebula, known as Messier 16, the Eagle Nebula, home nebula of the famous Pillars of Creation photograph. These two closely-knit patches of haze readily fit within the same binocular field of view.

Inner Journey:


“What is [the role of money] in the search for meaning? Is our relationship to it one of the chief factors that keeps us in our prison, or could it also be a tool for breaking out, for awakening to a life filled with intensity of purpose?”
— Jacob Needleman

Our personality has a need for security. As a human in a material world, we need money to survive. If we don’t have enough for basics, our lives cannot function. At the same time, with too much emphasis on the material, we lose the spiritual awareness that brings meaning and fulfillment. The key lies in the balance.

What draws most of your attention, time and energy: spiritual growth or money? Reflect on (or better yet, journal on) the balance or lack of balance of these two in your life.

“Money is not required to buy one necessity of the soul.”
— Henry David Thoreau

“View money and things not as something you create to fill a lack, but as tools to help you more fully express yourself and realize your potential.”
— Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

Daily Wisdom
July 20, 2021

“Let us make distinctions, call things by the right names.”

-Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
Language is an art and a science. We have so many words for things, each of which distinguishes itself in some particular way. As we learn and grow, we become more discerning. We understand the differences between the details, and why they are valuable.

-Lissa Coffey
