Inner Journey: TWO VIEWS

“… no matter what our difficulties may be, we recognize that there is a deep untroubled stream flowing below all surface troubles and that we are of one substance with that stream. The soul knows no difficulties.”
— James Thornton

Masters teach that we can experience two completely different states of reality at the same time — from the personality and from the soul.

Author Pema Chödron talks about being hungry, cold and tired but at that same time deeply content. Ram Dass speaks of how the emotional heart can be breaking while we recognize that all is unfolding perfectly.

Allowing our soul to be present with the discomforts of the personality shifts our experience of the discomforts.

“True self simply refers to the aspect of our being that is completely aware of its expanded nature no matter what we may be experiencing in our lives.”
— Martia Nelson

Besides, you’d get soaked.

Daily Tarot Tuesday: The Sun

Not only may you be inherently happy today, you’ll be able to explore all manner of intellectual problems, puzzles, and concerns. Great satisfaction can come from even the smallest insight, and if you can connect with the right person, you may have a conversation that will enrich and inform you for months to come. You may be attracted to more difficult problems today, and you’ll be up to the challenge.

Daily Tarot Wednesday: The High Priestess

Even if it’s a busy day at work or with loved ones, it may still be an introspective kind of day when you need to frequently take a quiet moment to reflect. Be organized and perform your tasks well, but also find those quiet instances when you can make sense of your feelings and impressions. You can get a great deal done today, and feel inwardly satisfied about it.
