Inner Journey:


“Peace comes not from the absence of conflict, but from the ability to cope with it.”
— Unknown Source

Angeles Arrien says that life will be simple if we follow the four-fold way counselled by indigenous peoples:

Show up, being present with all four mental, emotional, physical and spiritual intelligences.
Pay attention to what has heart and meaning.
Tell the truth without blame or judgment.
Be open to outcome, not attached to outcome.
“Peace is not won by those who fiercely guard their differences, but by those who with open minds and hearts seek out connections.”
— Katherine Paterson

Daily Wisdom
August , 2022

“Music comes first from my heart, and then goes upstairs to my head where I check it out.”

-Roberta Flack (1993)

Writing music is a spiritual experience. It comes from within and bubbles forth. I know people who are musical geniuses, expressing music is their dharma. It’s an amazing experience when you’re in your dharma, and doing what you’re really supposed to be doing. It comes easily, effortlessly, with timeless awareness. And when you’re done you look at what you’ve produced with amazement, like someone else must have done it. Where did this come from? The same place everything else comes from – God.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: Wheel of Fortune

Whatever you have planned or prepared for today, it probably won’t happen according to the script. Be flexible and expect the unexpected. It may not be anything big, so don’t completely abandon your agenda unless you must. It could just be a day of endless interruptions. Keep that sense of humor handy, and maybe find an inspiring idea or two in it all.
