GOING FOR GUILT-FREE PLAY
“There is no pleasure in having nothing to do. The fun is in having lots to do and not doing it.”
— Mary Little
When you’re tempted with a promise of pleasure, does guilt promptly spoil it for you?
For many of us, the work ethic still rules supreme. It keeps our life out of balance and our health at risk. There will always be lots of work to do. We can’t wait for it to go away to enjoy ourselves.
Today, we invite you to become aware of your attitude towards rest, relaxation, pleasure and fun. When you give yourself a break, do you carry guilt through it? Deep down, do you believe that you don’t deserve to have a good time, that you haven’t earned a holiday? If you do discover these thoughts, send them packing.
“Guilt is the source of sorrows, the avenging fiend that follows us behind with whips and stings.”
— Nicholas Rowe
A Note from the Universe

But I certainly wouldn’t mind the occasional, “Yeeeeee-haaaaaaa, hallelujah, amen brothers and sisters!” You know, kind of a “thank you,” in advance.

“This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap.”
-George Bernard Shaw
There’s a lot of living to do in this life! It’s one thing to go out and have adventures and experience all the fun there is to be had. But at a certain point in time we discover our purpose, the certain something that we feel compelled to do that gives our life meaning. And when we’re totally involved in our purpose and giving of ourselves, there’s no better feeling

Daily Tarot: Wheel of Fortune
Whatever you have planned or prepared for today, it probably won’t happen according to the script. Be flexible and expect the unexpected. It may not be anything big, so don’t completely abandon your agenda unless you must. It could just be a day of endless interruptions. Keep that sense of humor handy, and maybe find an inspiring idea or two in it all.
