About the breezes sighing,
And moans astir o’er field and dell,
Because the year is dying.”
- Paul Laurence Dunbar, Lyrics of a Lowly Life

Inner Journey: DEEPER COMMUNICATION
“Once a human being has arrived on this earth, communication is the largest single factor determining what kinds of relationships he makes with others and what happens to him in the world about him.”
— Virginia Satir
How do you typically communicate? Is it through words, gestures, emotions, thoughts, desires, needs, truths, direct perception or intuition? Do you focus more on the other person or on yourself? Do you typically tell, ask or listen?
For a few days, set an intention to be aware of your communication styles and skills. After you’ve spent some time talking with someone, reflect on what your underlying motives were and what level of depth you reached. Write your insights in your journal. This exercise will help you become more aware and conscious of who you are and why you do what you do.
“We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversation with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.”
— Thomas Moore
“You must speak straight so that your words may go as sunlight to our hearts.”

“Service is the rent that you pay for room on this earth.”
Service is a responsibility, and it is also an obligation. We owe it to ourselves to take care of each other – and this is how we do it. It is giving without expectation. It is an expression of love.

Daily Tarot: The Wheel of Fortune
You may have made careful plans or scheduled everything to perfection, but there are too many variables today to allow most of your plans to play out. Things may come up, one after another, and make this a scattered day. This is temporary and probably will have little impact on tomorrow, so just flow with it best you can and don’t let the instability bother you.
