Around; up above, what wind-walks! what
Of silk-sack clouds! Has wilder, willful-waiver

DO YOU OWN YOUR LIFE?
“The meaning of life is to give life meaning.”
— Ken Hudgins
When we own our lives, we accept what we’ve inherited and the experiences we hold in our memories. We also claim our right to create new conditions if we’re not happy with what’s come before. We assume responsibility for changing what does not suit us. We acknowledge our own special talents and skills, and truly comprehend our right to enjoy the journey. In short, we embrace the meaning and purpose, the mystery and the beauty of our lives.
Do you feel that you own your life at the moment?

“If a man wants his dreams to come true, he must wake up.”
Dreams might come to us, but success is something we must go after. Inspiration strikes, then it’s up to us to take action. We could buy all the great works of literature, but it we don’t actually read them, what is the point? If we feel that success is eluding us, then now is the time to evaluate our activities.

Daily Tarot: The Tower
Some days something blows up and there’s nothing you can do. It has nothing to do with you, actually; you just happen to be there. While today will probably be uneventful, you may feel emotionally vulnerable and find yourself imaging one worst case scenario after another. Consider these imaginings as drills or dress rehearsals and don’t let any of this unnerve you. You’re fine and will be fine no matter what.
