February Quotes

“Was it the smile of early spring
That made my bosom glow?
‘Twas sweet, but neither sun nor wind
Could raise my spirit so.

Was it some feeling of delight,
All vague and undefined?
No, ’twas a rapture deep and strong,
Expanding in the mind!”

Anne Bronte, In Memory of A Happy Day in February

Inner Journey:


“You can live a lifetime and, at the end of it, know more about other people than you know about yourself.”
— Beryl Markham

Who am I? To answer this, we must first learn to become more aware of ourselves. To be aware, we must STOP and PAY ATTENTION! We need to STOP and objectively watch ourselves in action.

We live most of our lives by habit. These habits keep us stuck in patterns that limit our experience of life. Once we detect a pattern we were previously unconscious of, we can choose differently, if we want. With awareness comes choice and with choice, we gain freedom.

“To be authentic is literally to be your own author…, to discover your own native energies and desires, and then to find your own way of acting on them.”
— Warren G. Bennis

“Self-knowledge is the great power by which we comprehend and control our lives.”
— Vernon Howard


A Note from the Universe

There’s a reason you chose Earth, exactly when you did, as exactly who you are, with those already in your life and those who soon will be: to be an example, to shine your light, and to give hope.

Yeah, you were needed… super bad.

Kind of obvious now, huh?

Today’s Recipe: Chef John’s Fresh Salmon Cakes

Salmon cakes are one of my go-to emergency meals. Every once in a while I like to use fresh salmon. Salmon is one of those products, like chicken, that’s very easy to get into a rut with. People generally find a few recipes that work for them, and just stay with those, but this fairly simple preparation should be easy to add to anyone’s rotation.

Daily Tarot: The Magician

You have a magic touch today. The right word or action at the right time can instantly turn things around and morph a challenge into an easy opportunity. This is not something to take for granted or to exploit, though. Use your power with a very light touch, if at all. It’s possible that a mere thought or unspoken intention could have influence.
