the birds are darting by
As if they loved to breast the breeze
that sweeps the cool clear sky.”
William C. Bryant

Spirituality & Health: Best Crystals for Focus
by Xenia Mateiu
Can’t concentrate? Wear, carry, or display fluorite and other crystals for focus.
Mental focus is essential for success in so many aspects of our lives. Whether it’s completing a task at work, devising a new business strategy, or cooking a delicious meal for your family, focus is fundamental. Meanwhile, a wandering mind can reduce problem-solving abilities and overall wellbeing.

Treehugger: Why Baby Leatherback Turtles Have Trouble Finding the Sea
They sometimes go around in circles.
When sea turtles hatch, they use the moon and natural light as their guide to the water. Even when they can’t see the sea, they can tell the difference between the dimmer shore and the brighter skies over the water.
EarthSky News: Alphecca, a jewel in the Northern Crown
Alphecca has several names
Stars often have many names. The brightest star in Corona Borealis is called Alphecca, or Gemma, or Alpha Coronae Borealis or Alpha Cor Bor. The proper name for Alphecca – Gemma – means gem or jewel. So on a dark June night under a dark sky, this star lives up to its name, sparkling within a noticeable semicircle of stars, the constellation Corona Borealis the Northern Crown. In skylore, this C-shaped constellation represents the crown or wreath worn by Ariadne, an ancient Minoan princess.
Patheos-Pagan: I Broke My Job with Sigils, and You Can Too
JUNE 11, 2022 BY THUMPER FORGE
Tuesdays are traditionally slow in retail, and when working by oneself, it’s easy to run out of things to do. Which is why, after I’d straightened and restocked and swept and wiped down the counters and thought really, really hard about scrubbing the toilet, I was like, “You know what? I do believe I’ll amuse myself with some Chaos Magic.

APPLY WHAT YOU KNOW
“Knowledge of any kind … brings about a change in awareness from where it is possible to create new realities.”
— Deepak Chopra
As we evolve, we handle knowledge in different ways. We tend to move through these stages:
• We are unaware.
• We become aware of facts, data, information.
• We comprehend meaning from the facts.
• We can personally apply the information in our lives.
• We have wisdom – enlightened, we can lovingly apply our knowledge to world affairs.
• We live in truth.
How have you personally experienced a shifting of applying knowledge from one level to the next?
“More important than finding the teacher is finding and following the truth of the teaching….”
— Sogyal Rinpoche
“There can be no knowledge without emotion. We may be aware of a truth, yet until we have felt its force, it is not ours. To the cognition of the brain must be added the experience of the soul.”
— Arnold Bennett
A Note from the Universe
Life is like a dance and we’re partners. Setbacks, delays, and detours? They’re like steps in the mambo, tango, and cha-cha. If you dissected the movements and saw them without the rest of the dance, you’d only see painful contortions. But when you see the big picture… poetry in motion.
In life, setbacks, delays, and detours are often just my way of “keeping” you for something way better. Don’t let them discourage you, don’t see them out of context, and whatever you do, don’t stop dancing.

“Now or never! You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.”
-Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
This is such a powerful concept that entire books have been written on this very topic – Eckhart Tolle’s “The Power of Now” is just one example. Now is the only time there is, and when we live in this very moment, all of our potential can be realized.

Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man
Possibly a romantically disquieting day, you may begin to suspect that your love is not being returned, at least not in kind. Or perhaps you can’t bring yourself to return the affections of an ardent admirer. This might feel even worse. The head and heart don’t always speak the same language or have the same opinions. Be strong and as kind as you can.
