February Quotes

“Blessings are the things we take for granted.
Each holiday we notice what we see.
Most know the Earth is utterly enchanted
Yet walk through life and love mechanically.
Valuing one’s gifts takes resolution
After days and nights of fantasy.
Love brings the sweet relief of absolution,
Enveloping our hesitance in need.
No touch inspires so swift a revolution,
Transforming all the hieroglyphs we read.
In your love is the charity of spring,
Nor self-obsessed nor blinded by some creed,
Embracing the grey dawns that blessings bring.”
–  Cornelius Lyons

Inner Journey:


“A good intention clothes itself with power.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our minds are incredibly powerful. We put that power to work for us when we consciously set an intention to be or do something. Get into the habit of consciously setting an intention for activities throughout your day.

Your intention might support efficiency – for example, to complete a job or project by a specific time. Your intention might support your personal growth, e.g., to undertake a task that scares you. Or it might support more soul connection, e.g., to be grateful for gifts we take for granted.

When we take the time to set an intention, no matter how trivial, we are consciously choosing what we want for ourselves. With consistent attention, your intentions will come to life!

“By becoming a conscious choice-maker, you begin to generate actions that are evolutionary for you.”
— Deepak Chopra

Daily Tarot: The 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.
