April Quotes

“Flower god, god of the spring, beautiful, bountiful,
Cold-dyed shield in the sky, lover of versicles,
Here I wander in April
Cold, grey-headed; and still to my
Heart, Spring comes with a bound, Spring the deliverer,
Spring, song-leader in woods, chorally resonant;
Spring, flower-planter in meadows,
Child-conductor in willowy
Fields deep dotted with bloom, daisies and crocuses:
Here that child from his heart drinks of eternity:
O child, happy are children!”

Robert Louis Stevenson, Flower God, God of the Spring, 1890

Spirituality & Health: 22 Affirmations to Ease Overthinking
by Shannon Kaiser

Stuck in a thought-loop of negative self-talk? Try utilizing positive affirmations to reframe your overthinking.
People used to tell me, “You think too much.” I took secret offense to this because I saw being cerebral as a good thing. But the truth is, overthinking can become a problem if we ruminate, stress, and over-analyze situations to the point of exhaustion, especially if we don’t take any action to end the stress cycle.

Inner Journey:


“I want to know the thoughts of God; the rest are details.”
— Albert Einstein

Everything — absolutely everything — that happens in our lives has a spiritual cause. Events on all other levels — mental, emotional and physical — are only effects.

When we are struggling with any challenge, whether it be ill health, a lack of money, a lost job, relationships, an accident, whatever — we need to look for the spiritual learning. We can ask ourselves, “What quality does my soul want me to live more fully?”

“If you start to think the problem is ‘out there,’ stop yourself. That thought is the problem.”
— Stephen Covey


A Note from the Universe

Daily Tarot Friday: The Devil

You don’t want to spend the whole day trying to swim upstream. Work on your self-control and don’t let anyone or anything lure you into overreacting or flying out of control. Be practical and don’t get in your own way. You can have your silly fun later, and fantasize your revenge, at home in private with those who love you no matter what you do or say.
