Daily Wisdom
July 13, 2022

“When we are writing, or painting, or composing, we are, during the time of creativity, freed from normal restrictions, and are opened to a wider world, where colors are brighter, sounds clearer, and people more wondrously complex than we normally realize.”

-Madeleine L’Engle, (Walking on Water 1980)

Creativity is freeing. It is exploring the great “what if” out there. When our imagination is unleashed we can soar to ever-greater heights. We experience our connection to the Universe in a profound way, with timeless awareness and innate wisdom.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Devil

You don’t want to spend the whole day trying to swim upstream. Work on your self-control and don’t let anyone or anything lure you into overreacting or flying out of control. Be practical and don’t get in your own way. You can have your silly fun later, and fantasize your revenge, at home in private with those who love you no matter what you do or say.
