April Quotes

“The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again.”
–  Mathilde Blind, April Rain

Mountain Rose Herbs: How to Make Herbal Salt Blends + 4 Recipes

It is mighty cliché to start a health and wellness blog with a Hippocrates quote, but I am willing to sacrifice originality for truth. The old adage “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” is still worthy of repeating some 2,400 years after it was first uttered and despite centuries of medical and health advances

EarthSky News: Why does the moon seem to follow me?

Why does the moon seem to follow me?
Have you noticed, especially when you’re in a car, that the moon seems to follow you? The reason is that the moon is so distant compared to earthly objects around you. You see buildings and people and farm fields whizz by, but you never outpace the moon. It appears to follow along on your journey.

Patheos-Pagan: Wild Magic
APRIL 10, 2022 BY JOHN BECKETT


Every time I start to narrow my practice down to something more manageable, I find myself presented with something new. Or in this case, with something very, very old.

Not in an “ooh, shiny!” sense, but in a sense of “this, too, is part of who you are.”

Inner Journey: OPEN TO TRUST

“When I grip the wheel too tight, I find I lose control.”
— Steve Rapson

WE SEEK TO CONTROL OUR LIVES WHEN WE DO NOT TRUST, WHEN WE DO NOT LOVE. Our ego, perceiving itself to be vulnerable and insecure, uses control in an effort to protect itself.

At the root of our need to control, we find FEAR. It may be fear of the unknown. Fear of not coping. Fear of loss. Or possibly even fear of looking stupid. And as our efforts to control other people and events invariably fail, our fear increases.

Trust, on the other hand, is a quality of the soul. While control is a tool of the mind, TRUST AND FAITH ARE ASPECTS OF THE HEART. Trust comes with the deep knowing that we are spiritual beings in physical bodies. When we trust enough in life to give upour need to control, we can relax and open to the flow of energy in our lives. This brings peace of mind.

“The only real security in life lies in relishing life’s insecurity.”
— M. Scott Peck

“Do not abandon trust when your ego thinks things should be different than they are.”
— Wayne Dyer

Daily Wisdom

Kindness
“Only kindness matters. We are God’s hands.”

-Jewel


Ask anyone what they value most in a person, what they remember most about a person, and chances are that they will say ‘kindness.’ Kindness always makes such a positive and lasting impression! Why is that? Is it because we encounter it all too rarely these days? Being kind is such a simple gesture, yet it is one that is often disregarded. Let’s make an effort today to recognize kindness in others, and to express kindness ourselves

Daily Tarot: Strength

Although it may be a peaceful day, that calm may all be on the surface. If dissatisfaction or anger is brewing at depth, there could be thoughts or fantasies of revenge or anger to fuel the bad feelings. Face everyone and everything with great care and respect. You have more than enough strength to deal with whatever comes up. Obviously, don’t bait or antagonize anyone. Kindness wins out.
