“‘Tis like the birthday of the world,
When earth was born in bloom;
The light is made of many dyes,
The air is all perfume:
There’s crimson buds, and white and blue,
The very rainbow showers
Have turned to blossoms where they fell,
And sown the earth with flowers.”
– Thomas Hood

Spirit Library: The Importance of Focusing on Ourselves!

“Everything seeks its source.”
— a universal principle
Our spiritual journey unfolds through 2 stages.
THE PATH OF PERSONALITY – We arise from the one source of all, to be born as individuals in a world of form. In this physical world, we experience separation and limitation. This is a time of immersion in a world of effects, form, ego, distortion, illusion and pain.
THE PATH OF SOUL – When we have experienced enough pain, we find our way back home to our spiritual source. We let go of the illusion of separation to embrace unity and wholeness. We work with cause instead of effects.
Paradoxically, it’s only with a strong and healthy personality that we become capable of expressing soul. WHERE ARE YOU ON YOUR PATH? Are you struggling to do more and have more? Are you aware of your soul challenging you to open to the bigger picture of life?
“Two people have been living in you all your life. One is the ego, garrulous, demanding, hysterical, calculating; the other is the hidden spiritual being, whose still voice of wisdom you have only rarely heard or attended to – you have uncovered in yourself your own wise guide.”
— Sogyal Rinpoche

“Friendship’s a noble name, ’tis love refined.”
-Susannah Centlivre, The Stolen Heiress (1703)
It’s interesting that one of the top-rated TV shows right now is called “Friends.” I think it’s because that’s what we all want. We all want people in our lives whom we love and who love us back. People we can count on, people we can laugh with, people who appreciate us for who we are. The theme song for that show says: “I’ll be there for you” and that says so much! We need to cherish our friends, both old and new, and pay attention to those relationships, and nurture them because they are important to us.

Daily Tarot: The High Priestess
From the moment your eyes open, you’ll know that you’re not the one in charge today. That’s fine, too. Intuition is sharp and will not lead you astray, no matter what oddness the world tosses at you. Any challenges or problems will prove to be small ones. Keep a low profile, speak calmly and softly (when appropriate), and glide through a very lucky day.
