Inner Journey: Befriend yourself
“Self-contempt never inspires lasting change.”
— Jane R. Hirschmann & Carol H. Munter
The journey to know ourselves ideally brings us to self-understanding and acceptance. It is NOT a quest for self-improvement.
When we open to love and accept ourselves, no matter what, we allow our innate love, power and wisdom to emerge naturally.

“Dharma” is a Sanskrit word that loosely translated means “purpose in life.” To have found our dharma is indeed a beautiful thing! Dharma can be more than one thing, and dharma can also change and evolve as we do. But basically, we know that we’re in our dharma when we love what we do, when we feel fulfilled, when we are unaware of the time that goes by when we are working. True dharma is work that we enjoy and that also helps people in some way

Daily Tarot: The Hermit
It might be a busy day, but try to make some time for yourself. Any time you spend meditating or settling your mind will be time well spent. It doesn’t have to be spent sitting around and being idle all day. Staring pensively into that cup of tea for a few moments can be equally beneficial. Calm your mind, and your heart, and make it an at-peace day.
