Inner Journey:PRACTICE DETACHMENT
As our consciousness rises, our perspective becomes more and more impersonal. What does this mean?
It means we are increasingly able to view our lives and the rest of the world with detachment. This does not mean we are cold and uncaring. Rather, we are self- contained. We have well-defined boundaries and we are able to think and act objectively, clearly and responsibly.
When we have learned detachment, we do not get hooked into the thoughts and feelings of others. We are not easily upset or manipulated. We may feel compassion for others but this does not cloud our ability to choose how we think, feel and behave. We also do not need others to behave in any particular way.
“Until we take how we see ourselves (and how we see others) into account, we will be unable to understand how others see and feel about themselves and their world. Unaware, we will project our intentions on their behavior and call ourselves objective.”
— Stephen Covey

Today’s Recipe: Habanero Honey Sweet Corn Cake
This habanero honey sweet corn cake is spicy, sweet, savory, dense, moist, and very addictive! I also had no idea what to call this, as it’s not really a cake, but it’s also not a pie, or a pudding, or a custard, so I ended up with “cake” since it’s inspired by sweet Mexican corn cake.

“To have freedom is only to have that which is absolutely necessary to enable us to be what we ought to be.”
-Ibn Rahel (Medieval Christian chronicler, lived in Egypt)
One of my children’s songs had a line in it that says: “You gotta be you and you gotta do what you love to do.” That’s freedom. Freedom lets us be ourselves. We often take freedom for granted – it feels so natural to us. But we need to recognize it every once in awhile, and celebrate it

Daily Tarot: Death
Though no great demands may be made of you today, you may feel lackluster and just not setting the world on fire as you like to do. Everybody has a low energy day from time to time. Perhaps you’ve been pushing it too hard for too many days in a row and just need a short break. Don’t be lazy but be extra good to yourself. Tomorrow will be brighter
