January Quotes

“Look into the garden,
Where the grass was green;
Covered by the snowflakes,
Not a blade is seen.

Now the bare black bushes
All look soft and white.
Every twig is laden-
What a pretty sight!”

“Winter is icumen in,
Lhude sing Goddamm,
Raineth drop and staineth slop,
And how the wind doth ramm !
Sing : Goddam.”

Ezra Pound, Ancient Music

Spirituality & Health: Setting Intentions for the New Year (Instead of Resolutions)
by Becky Garrison

Now that 2023 has arrived, throw away the resolutions and try setting intentions for the new year.
Setting a New Year’s resolution to lose ten pounds, make more money, or land a coveted gig sounds good on paper. But by mid-January, I always find myself in the company of the nearly 80 percent of Americans who failed to stick to their New Year’s resolutions. Over and over again, I would beat myself up for failing to muster up enough motivation to change my life.

Inner Journey:


“It ain’t so much trouble to get rich as it is to tell when we have got rich.”
— Josh Billings

How do you define ‘rich’?

If you want greater wealth, what does that mean for you? A large annual income? If so, how large? A beautiful home? Health? Security? Happiness? To be in service?

Get really specific about what would bring you a rich life. There are no right and wrong answers here. Don’t judge your desires. Just dig deep to discover what it is that you really want. If you want things, explore what qualities of life those things represent to you.

“No one can tell whether they are richer or poor by turning to their ledger. It is the heart that makes a person rich. One is rich according to what one is, not according to what one has.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

“If we command our wealth, we shall be rich and free. If our wealth commands us, we are poor indeed.”
— Edmund Burke


A Note from the Universe

You know, if I were you, every time I put on a garment—pair of shoes, or gloves, or a T-shirt—I’d say something really nice to your body.

But that’s just me.

I mean, you did kind of “luck out.” Huh?

Daily Tarot: The Magician

It may be hard to be serious and stick to those dull but crucial tasks that keep the day running smoothly. Be systematic, cheerful, and don’t let it show if you feel undervalued or underappreciated. Save your sharp wit and cleverness for another time and place. Time spent with younger people or children can lift your spirits and keep things in perspective for you.
