Comes and whispers to you
As a beautiful friend

WE PROJECT OUR STRENGTHS
“Any situation that you find yourself in, is an outward reflection of your inner state of beingness.”
— El Morya
We have discussed that OUR WORLD MIRRORS WHO WE ARE BACK TO US. When we get upset by something outside of us, our reaction shows us that we have an inner wound to be healed.
Just as we can be unconscious of our wounds, we can also be unconscious of our strengths. If you are really drawn to the positive qualities in another person, you are being invited to own those same qualities in yourself.
“The people we are in relationship with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors reflecting their beliefs. So relationship is one of the most powerful tools for growth… if we look honestly at our relationships we can see so much about how we have created them.”
— Shakti Gawain
“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

“Make yourself an honest man, and then you may be sure there is one rascal less in the world.”
-Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881)
There are so many things in this world that we would like to change, if only we could. Yet so much is out of our personal control. What we can work on, at any given moment in time, is changing our own behavior. It starts with a decision.

Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man
Possibly a romantically disquieting day, you may begin to suspect that your love is not being returned, at least not in kind. Or perhaps you can’t bring yourself to return the affections of an ardent admirer. This might feel even worse. The head and heart don’t always speak the same language or have the same opinions. Be strong and as kind as you can.
