Spirit Library: You Are Happening to Life
The general perception held by most is that life is happening to them but should we change perspectives we will find that we are happening to life. We are the definers of life as we act upon life. From imagination to action we breathe into life; we give it breath.

BE, DO AND HAVE
“Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you love to do, in order to have what you want.”
— Margaret Young
The formula for success is Be, Do, Have. If we seek abundance, we must be abundant in spirit. We can begin to cultivate spiritual wealth by opening our hearts in gratitude.
Start a gratitude journal today. Each evening, write down at least 5 things for which you are grateful. This simple tool will help you open your eyes to the abundance of your world right now.
“Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.”
— Estonian proverb
A Note from the Universe

Today’s Recipe: Warm Zucchini-Basil Salad
This is the perfect recipe if you have a lot of zucchini to use up. It is important to thinly slice the zucchini, so I use the slicer on my box grater. I sometimes fill 4 baking sheets at a time. You can eat it warm or cold. I will eat this portion all by myself.

Have few desires.”
-Lao-tzu, The Way of Life
Another word for simple is “easy.” With ease, doesn’t that sound like a great way to live life? It’s our choice. We’re the ones who have been complicating our lives. Look at what’s really important. Sort things out, give yourself the space to see what is really there. You’ll be surprised at just how perfect “simple” really is

Daily Tarot: The High Priestess
Even if it’s a busy day at work or with loved ones, it may still be an introspective kind of day when you need to frequently take a quiet moment to reflect. Be organized and perform your tasks well, but also find those quiet instances when you can make sense of your feelings and impressions. You can get a great deal done today, and feel inwardly satisfied about it.
