Spirit Library: A Period of Rest
Kate Spreckley

Spiritual teachings throughout the ages suggest embracing periods of rest where we draw inward for spiritual, emotional, and physical restoration. Currently there is a very floaty watery feel to the energies which is urging us to allow for a period of rest and contemplation where we can commune with our soul, access our inner world, and allow space for ourselves to heal and integrate.

Inner Journey:

DAILY FORGIVENESS

“As long as you don’t forgive, who and whatever it is will occupy rent-free space in your mind.”
— Isabelle Holland

We cannot avoid daily resentment and thoughts of guilt. They are a part of human nature. What we can do is release their grip on us. We can forgive others and ourselves daily.

Forgiveness requires nothing in return. There are no conditions. It gets rid of old baggage and clears up unfinished business. It leads us to a life of authenticity, lightness and directness. Forgiveness is the highest form of letting go of resentment andego.

True forgiveness is more than an apology, understanding and acceptance. There is an element of recreating and re-imagining. There is a need to envision ourselves as more loving, interdependent, courageous and compassionate. Forgiveness requires honouringthe sacred journey of learning about life – our life and others’.

“Whatever we have done, we can always make amends for it without ever looking back in guilt or sorrow.”
— Eknath Easwaran

They’re portable, sort of like a mini pizza, except shaped like a cupcake. They’re a great savory snack and a great addition to a game day buffet. Feel free to customize to your family’s tastes with additions like ham, sausage, bell peppers, salami, mushrooms, olives, jalapenos, etc. I recommend not omitting the tomato, that really adds something special.

Daily Wisdom

Business
“All business proceeds on beliefs, on judgments of probabilities, and not on certainties.”

-Charles W. Eliot


Let’s look at this in terms of business in the broadest sense. For example, we are all running the business of our lives. We’re the CEO. Many of the same principles that apply to running a business then apply to us in this way. There are no certainties in life – we make decisions based on what we’ve learned so far, and maybe a little bit of intuition

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com
