Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.”

Spring is bossy and pushes her pretty way into every pore of our being. We feel a sense of expectancy as the need to birth another level of our inner-light kicks and prods at us from the inside out knocking on the windows of our soul. All of earth mirrors this urge to move forward out of the long season of waiting into a place of knowing.

By Patti Wigington

MBG: The Biggest Change You’ll See When You Find Your Self-Worth
Releasing our ego’s need to make us small and separate shifts our understanding of our role in the divine plan. We learn that Spirit is within us and beyond us all at once. We begin to see that the light is in us and around us.

Patheos-Pagan: When You Shouldn’t Talk About Your Spiritual Experiences
APRIL 14, 2022 BY JOHN BECKETT
I saw a Twitter conversation earlier this week around the question of keeping your spiritual and experiences to yourself. As with so many things I see on Twitter, I can’t say what I want to say in 280 characters, so this turned into a blog post instead.

“No matter how painful our early experiences were, our Essence cannot be harmed. Our Essence is waiting for the opportunity to reveal itself. In a very true sense, we are waiting for the opportunity to become ourselves. Our spirit is yearning to break free, to express itself …
“And yet, ironically, we always fear and resist opening to that which is most real in us. When we trust in the process and give ourselves over to it, however, our true nature comes forth. The result is real integrity, love, authenticity, creativity, understanding, guidance, joy, power, and serenity-all of the qualities we are forever demanding that personality supply.”
— Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson
A Note from the Universe
True brilliance is not a function of understanding one’s view of the world and finding order, logic, and spirituality in it. True brilliance is understanding that your view of order, logic, and spirituality is what created your world.
You can change anything and everything.

“Deeds of kindness are equal in weight to all the commandments.”
A kind word, a smile, a friendly gesture – sometimes that’s all it takes to totally turn someone’s day around. If we can turn a day around so easily, couldn’t we turn a life around? We can certainly turn our own lives around. It’s these little things that add up in big ways and make the big differences in the world

Daily Tarot: Temperance
Patience is your secret weapon to face down all obstacles today. Take your good old time to make sure you understand what needs to be done, for whom, why, and how. This methodical approach may not be your natural or favorite one, and it might annoy someone who has a different opinion of how urgent the issue is. Nonetheless, patience will get you through the day with fewer, if any, mishaps.
