January Quotes

“The door was shut, as doors should be,
Before you went to bed last night;
Yet Jack Frost has got in, you see,
And left your window silver white.

He must have waited till you slept;
And not a single word he spoke,
But pencilled o’er the panes and crept
Away again before you woke.

And now you cannot see the hills
Nor fields that stretch beyond the lane;
But there are fairer things than these
His fingers traced on every pane.”

  • Gabriel Setoun, Jack Frost

Inner Journey:


“The soul that is attached to anything, however much good there may be in it, will not arrive at the liberty of divine union. For whether it be a strong wire rope or a slender and delicate thread that holds the bird, it matters not, if it really holds it fast; for until the cord be broken, the bird cannot fly.”
— Saint John of the Cross

“Attachment to spiritual things is… just as much an attachment as inordinate love of anything else.”
— Thomas Merton

“The tighter you squeeze, the less you have.”
— Zen Saying


A Note from the Universe

Daily, hour by hour, minute by minute, second by second, you are admired by eyes in the unseen.

You are deeply understood. Your actions and inactions are honored. Your thoughts and deeds are saluted. Even your fears and challenges are admired, along with the courage it took to choose them. (Yeah, you chose them.)

Having a connection with a soul as adventurous as yours gives all of us here reason to party like “the roof is on fire.” Even though we usually don’t have roofs….

Thanks from this side of the curtains,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom
January 26, 2022

“The percentage of mistakes in quick decisions is no greater than in long-drawn-out vacillations, and the effect of decisiveness itself “makes things go” and creates confidence.”

-Anne O’Hare McCormick

There’s a lot to be said for making decisions quickly. When we go with our gut, follow our instincts, our decisions usually turn out to be good ones. But sometimes if we think too much, or over-analyze the situation, we just confuse ourselves. A quick decision saves time and energy.

-Lissa Coffey
