Spirit Library: Renewal of Life (a message from Kate Spreckley)

In these times of dramatic change, it can be tempting to throw ourselves into life by attempting to accomplish things at the level that we have in the past. However, a more gradual approach is needed as we are still integrating the shifts and changes that have occurred recently. Being mindful of our energy reserves and the unnecessary aspects that are still draining us is important

Daily Good: Friend of the Water

A name is a starting point for bringing the abstract into relationship, enkindling understanding.

  • Natalie Middleton –

Friend of the Water

“Above a clear, rocky stream, a tiny green tree frog perches on the belly of a leaf. Turning its minute snout toward the water, the frog lets out three chirps in the dark, struggling to make itself known. The act of naming is never a discovery, but a description of what always was there, a sound connected to a thought in time. The heart within the translucent chest of the tiny frog by the stream beats with blood dating back 300 million years, long before the first utterance of human language. And until recently, it survived, like 86 percent of terrestrial life, without a scientific name, unable to break through what taxonomists refer to as the Linnean shortfall.” Science writer Natalie Middleton shares more. { read more }

Inner Journey: WHAT MESSAGE DID YOU MOST NEED TO HEAR?

“One word frees us from the weight and pain of life; that word is love.”
— Sophocles

In exploring the enneagram, Riso and Hudson have identified ‘lost messages’ that we needed to hear as children but didn’t. The absence of these words may be at the heart of our most basic fear. And unconsciously we may still be seeking to hear these words from others.

Review the following messages and note if any one touches you more strongly than the others:

  1. “You are good.”
  2. “You are wanted.”
  3. “You are loved for yourself.”
  4. “You are seen for who you are.”
  5. “Your needs are not a problem.”
  6. “You are safe.”
  7. “You will be taken care of.”
  8. “You will not be betrayed.”
  9. “Your presence matters.”

“Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are — chaff and grain together — certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.”
— Dinah Mulock

Philosophy
“I am open to conviction on all points except dinner and debts. I hold that one must be eaten and the other paid. Those are my only prejudices.”

-George Eliot, 1857


Having an open mind will get us far. It helps us to learn and to grow. There are so many different experiences just waiting for us. There are times when we need to step up and say “okay, let’s go” and see what happens, see where a philosophy takes us. We can always change our mind and try out something else!

Daily Tarot: The Fool

The day may be full of confusion but you don’t have to go through it naively and unaware of what’s happening around you. It’s not a good day to flirt with taking silly risks, some of which might turn out to be semi-dangerous or costly. You may be too hyper to want to play it safe, but at least make an effort to not be naïve or irresponsible.

Daily Good: Before You Know Kindness: A Poem by Naomi Shihab Nye

I’ve always loved the definition for contemplation: “a long, loving look.” And when you take a long, loving look anywhere, you feel more bonded with whatever you’ve looked at.

  • Naomi Shihab Nye –

Before You Know Kindness: A Poem by Naomi Shihab Nye

“Before you know what kindness really is you must lose things, feel the future dissolve in a moment like salt in a weakened broth.” Thus begins Naomi Shihab Nye’s poem Kindness, animated poignantly by Ana Perez Lopez for the On Being Project. The poem, first published in 1980 and read softly here by the poet, contrasts strikingly with the typographical approach to the animation done during the pandemic lockdown of 2020. “Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside, you must know sorrow as the other deepest thing.” Nye’s words have relevance for us now as we not only negotiate great losses but reemerge to a new normal, with Kindness, for “only Kindness makes sense anymore”. { read more }

Inner Journey: ALL IS MIND

“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

If you were to realize that right now, this very instant, as you read this email, you were actually dreaming…

And you realized that, as is true of all dreams, you are your dream weaver, and all that’s necessary for something to happen next in this dream is for you to DEEPLY expect it…

And you understood that nothing else you could do would bolster your expectations more than vividly imagining what you wanted, and then demonstrating, via some minor physical gesture each day, that you believed in its inevitability…

Could you pull it off? Would you believe and behave in spite of the circumstances that now surround you (the old dream still lingering before your physical senses)?

Would you at least try to redirect the ship of your life? Muster the courage, the faith, and the will to at least pretend??

You’ve been doing it your whole life. It explains your every friend, romance, and happiness; your “lucky breaks,” your connections, and the coincidences; the finds, the steals (deals!), and the clutch comebacks. There was NO mountain high enough to keep Cat Bolotin down (and back then… you didn’t even know you were dreaming!). And there NEVER will be.

Tallyho,

Power
“The instruments of power – arms, gold, machines, magical or technical secrets – always exist independently of him who disposes of them, and can be taken up by others. Consequently all power is unstable.”

-Simone Weil (1934)


We need to remain unattached to any outside trappings of power – the job title, or money, or whatever it is that “gives” us power. Because when those things go away, as they invariably do, being transitory and unreal, then our power vanishes with them. Instead, recognize that our real power comes from within, and it can never be taken, it can never be lost.

Inner Journey: CELEBRATE DIFFERENCES

“Souls don’t have races or sexes or religions. They are beyond artificial divisions.”
— Brian Weiss

Intolerance of differences always exists in people who don’t know who they are, people who don’t have a strong sense of their own authentic self, the soul within.

Intolerance is rooted in fear.

The basis for having a strong sense of self-esteem is to replace our unconscious idea of basic unworthiness with a conscious knowing of our fundamental inherent goodness. As Matthew Fox argues in Original Blessing, the notion of ‘original sin’ must be replaced with the truth of ‘original blessing.’

Being in touch with our essential goodness, we can see the essential goodness in others as well.

“Beliefs separate. Loving thoughts unite.”
— Paul Ferrini

Inner Journey: DEEPER COMMUNICATION

“Once a human being has arrived on this earth, communication is the largest single factor determining what kinds of relationships he makes with others and what happens to him in the world about him.”
— Virginia Satir

How do you typically communicate? Is it through words, gestures, emotions, thoughts, desires, needs, truths, direct perception or intuition? Do you focus more on the other person or on yourself? Do you typically tell, ask or listen?

For a few days, set an intention to be aware of your communication styles and skills. After you’ve spent some time talking with someone, reflect on what your underlying motives were and what level of depth you reached. Write your insights in your journal.This exercise will help you become more aware and conscious of who you are and why you do what you do.

“We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversation with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.”
— Thomas Moore

“You must speak straight so that your words may go as sunlight to our hearts.”

“Whoop-de-do.”

And that you can expect extraordinary miracles to manifest about 25% more often, when you not only learn this, but you also visualize at least several times a week?

“Oh, cowabunga.”

But when you understand “thoughts become things,” you visualize, and you begin saying and doing things, every day, that you’ve never said or done before, the onslaught of serendipities and coincidences are immeasurable.

Searching
“What we seek we do not find – that would be too trim and tidy for so reckless and opulent a thing as life. It is something else we find.

-Susan Glaspell, The Morning Is Near Us, 1939


The journey is filled with twists and turns and all kinds of surprises. That’s what keeps life interesting. Whatever it is that we seek, we end up finding so much more than we ever could have anticipated. Those unexpected treasures we come across give meaning, and significance, to our experience

Daily Good: Two Words That Can Change a Life

Words are but the vague shadows of the volumes we mean. Little audible links, they are, chaining together great inaudible feelings and purposes.

Theodore Dreiser –

Two Words That Can Change a Life

“As I walked into the parking lot, I spotted the woman returning her shopping cart, and I remembered something in my purse that could help her in a different but hopefully profound way. It wasn’t a handful of cash or a lead on a job for her husband, but maybe — just maybe — it would make her life better. My heart pounded as I approached the woman. “Excuse me,” I said, my voice trembling a bit. “I couldn’t help overhearing what you said to the cashier. It sounds like you’re going through a really hard time right now. I’m so sorry. I’d like to give you something.” And I handed her a business-sized card. When the woman read the card’s only two words, she began to cry. And through her tears, she said, “You have no idea how much this means to me.”” Cheryl Rice shares more in this piece about the two simple words that touched her life and then rippled out to touch many others. { read more }

Inner Journey: LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE

“Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.”
— Aldous Huxley

What was your peak experience of this past week? What was your most challenging experience?

Stepping back to review your week can offer many insights. Normally we can’t see the forest for the trees. Now back away and see the whole forest. Review your week. Now write a short summary — whatever comes to mind for you. If action is required, plan how you will accomplish it in the next week.

“Ask the experienced rather than the learned.”
— Arabic proverb

“Experience is that marvellous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.”
— Franklin P. Jones

Moderation

“The pursuit, even of the best things, ought to be calm and tranquil.”

-Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.)


Moderation in our temperament is essential to our health and well-being. It is exhausting going from euphoria when something goes right to depression when something goes wrong. Our middle ground here comes from knowing that external forces do not influence our emotions. We decide how to react, we can choose to accept that we really are okay no matter how things go.

Daily Good: Ayni: Living Life in the Round

Scarcity appears when wealth cannot flow. Lewis Hyde

Ayni: Living Life in the Round

“Today For You, Tomorrow For Me.” This is the meaning behind ayni, a living Andean philosophy and practice that awakens a balanced and harmonious relationship between nature and man. In Andean cosmology, this is expressed through complementary opposites such as male/female; sun/moon; gold/silver. Their interaction is a form of reciprocity called ayni. One of the guiding principles of the way of life of the Quechua and Aymara people, this equilibrium of exchange and mutuality, which has been practiced since ancient times (since before the Incas), creates a cycle of connectivity and support essential to social and spiritual wellbeing.” More in this thoughtful piece from Parabola. { read more }

Inner Journey: JOURNEY HOME

“Everything seeks its source.”
— a universal principle

Our spiritual journey unfolds through 2 stages.
1.THE PATH OF PERSONALITY – We arise from the one source of all, to be born as individuals in a world of form. In this physical world, we experience separation and limitation. This is a time of immersion in a world of effects, form, ego, distortion, illusionand pain.
2.THE PATH OF SOUL – When we have experienced enough pain, we find our way back home to our spiritual source. We let go of the illusion of separation to embrace unity and wholeness. We work with cause instead of effects.

Paradoxically, it’s only with a strong and healthy personality that we become capable of expressing soul. WHERE ARE YOU ON YOUR PATH? Are you struggling to do more and have more? Are you aware of your soul challenging you to open to the bigger picture oflife?

“Two people have been living in you all your life. One is the ego, garrulous, demanding, hysterical, calculating; the other is the hidden spiritual being, whose still voice of wisdom you have only rarely heard or attendedto – you have uncovered in yourself your own wise guide.”
— Sogyal Rinpoche

Illusion
“If you ever do a survey, you’ll find that people prefer illusion to reality, ten to one. Twenty, even.”

-Judith Guest, 1976


There seems to be a lot of escapism in our society. We like to go to movies and get lost in a story. We like to visit places like Disneyland, called “the happiest place on earth.” As much as we can enjoy these excursions, we can’t live in Fantasyland. But what we must understand is that reality can be just as blissful. We can create our lives so that we experience joy, love, peace, anytime we want to.

Inner Journey:

TAKE A BREAK!

“A good rest is half the work.”
— Yugoslav Proverb

Strong work ethic? You can still justify taking a break. In fact, we NEED to take breaks — regularly and frequently. Why? WE WORK MORE EFFECTIVELY WHEN WE DON’T WORK SO MUCH.

Rest periods and vacations break our work routines. They help SHIFT OUR THINKING from its habitual, stuck patterns. They create the SPACE FOR ENERGY AND CREATIVITY to flow. They give us TIME FOR REFLECTION, so we can step back and look at what’s happeningin our lives with greater detachment. We become more sensitive and aware.

And finally, we are stronger when we BALANCE DOING with BEING. All work and no play throws our life out of balance and endangers our health. Our bodies and minds need sufficient rest for recuperation. This is critically important with the level of stressin our lives these days.

“The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.”
— Sidney J. Harris

“I still need more healthy rest in order to work at my best. My health is the main capital I have and I want to administer it intelligently.”
— Ernest Hemingway

Sincerity

“Sincerity is the first characteristic of all men in any way heroic.”-Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881)

Heroism is when you put yourself on the line. And you can’t do that without being sincere. It’s an “all or nothing” kind of a thing – you can’t be a little bit sincere, you have to just go for it all the way to be a hero!

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man

Be calm, proactive, and don’t exhaust yourself with endless fear. Any number of things might backfire or go wrong today, just like any other day, and there is little if anything extraordinary to be fearful about now. Your basic sense of insecurity may be higher than normal today, but this will pass soon. Take heart and be your normal brave self.

Celebrating the Witches’ New Year 

The fields are bare, the leaves have fallen from the trees, and the skies are going gray and cold. It is the time of year when the earth has died and gone dormant. Every year on October 31 (or May 1, if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere) the Sabbat we call Samhain presents us with the opportunity to once more celebrate the cycle of death and rebirth.

Elephant Journal: A 3-Step Ayurvedic Cleanse to flush out Toxins & Toxic Energy.

I first discovered Ayurveda, the ancient Indian medical system, when I was a professional mountaineer.
When climbing at altitude in the Himalayas, I would occasionally see a black tar-like substance adhering to rock faces. I discovered that this was shilajit, known as a panacea, or cure-all, and revered by the local people.

Inner Journey:

COMPASSION

“What I want in my life is compassion, a flow between myself and others based on a mutual giving from the heart.”
— Marshall B. Rosenberg

“The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all these living beings, which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another.”
— Thomas Merton

“When we experience the pain of another person, we instinctively want to take away that pain. But by taking away the other person’s pain, we also take away his or her opportunity to grow. To be truly compassionate, we must be able to share another person’s suffering and pain — knowing there is nothing we can do to relieve it and that we are not responsible for it, and yet knowing and understanding what that pain feels like.”
— John Gray

Today’s Recipe: Snickers-Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

Every year around Halloween, I like to come up with a sweet treat that uses candies from trick-or-treating events. Either you have kids that end up with lots of them, or you have loads leftover from handing them out. My favourite candy has always been Snickers, so these peanut butter cookies are stuffed with them. The outside is a lovely sandy, crumbly cookie, and the middle is gooey and chewy from the baked Snickers. I’ve had a dozen people ask me for this recipe after an event I made them for last week, so be ready to share if you make these, too!

Persistence

“Rome was not built in a day.”

-John Clarke (1596-1658)

I’ve always heard this quote, and never knew who said it, so I was happy to come across it this time around. How appropriate! In this fast-paced society we tend to expect instant gratification. How often do you hear people complain about how slow their computers are, or their dial-up, or the pizza guy? And all that spills over into our expectations for ourselves. We want that great job NOW, that dream relationship NOW, enlightenment NOW! But we have to remember that there is always divine timing involved. The seed needs time to sprout, the sprout needs time to grow. We are like that sprout that needs to keep pushing up the dirt, keep reaching toward the sun. We’re growing every day.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: Death

Though no great demands may be made of you today, you may feel lackluster and just not setting the world on fire as you like to do. Everybody has a low energy day from time to time. Perhaps you’ve been pushing it too hard for too many days in a row and just need a short break. Don’t be lazy but be extra good to yourself. Tomorrow will be brighter.

ThoughtCo: Magickal Creature Totems

Whenever you are visited by a magickal or mythological figure, such as a mermaid or a faerie, it has likely been shown to you as a means to relay a special message meant just for you. This could occur during the nighttime in your dreams or in a vision when you are awake. Also, if you discover that you are drawn to a particular mystical creature like a unicorn or dragon this too may indicate a deeper meaning. Review the folklore and possible lessons associated with any mystical creature that has surfaced in your life – the story may be more revealing than you could imagine

Daily Good: Wild Wisdom

Jenny Cullinan dedicates her time to studying and learning from bees in the wild. Spending time with any species in the wild over time leads to understanding of that species as it truly is. She calls this greater understanding wild wisdom. With an allergy to bee stings, instead of being afraid of them she chose to learn how to be with them. She urges us to look at nature’s genius and use it as a guide, allowing wild wisdom to restore our relationship with ourselves and with other species. { read more } http://www.karmatube.org/videos.php?id=8438

EarthSky News: Moon and Taurus before dawn July 26 to 28

Before dawn on July 26, 27, 28, 2019, watch for the waning crescent moon to travel in front of Taurus the Bull. Assuming your sky is dark enough, the Bull is instantly recognizable; it’s one of the more prominent constellations of the zodiac. Look for this constellation’s bright reddish star Aldebaran plus its two signpost star clusters, the V-shaped Hyades and the tiny, misty, dipper-shaped Pleiades

Nightshades are used by people every day without them even knowing it.

Inner Journey:

OPEN YOUR HANDS

“More than any other part of the body, our hands reveal our inner state.”
— Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov

Today, be aware of how you hold your hands when you’re not actively doing something with them.

With the stress of our daily lives, many of us find our hands typically clenched in fists. This is proof of the tension we hold in our bodies. And ponder this: how can we receive the abundance of life if our hands are not open to receive it?

When you become aware that your hands are closed tight, stretch your fingers and spread them wide in the shape of a starfish. Deep breathing will also help you relax into the moment.

“What is always speaking silently is the body.”
— Norman Brown

Cool, huh? Being among the very first to “get” what’s going on.

To sense the promise, dare the dream, feel the power, tempt the fear, know the truth, rise above and be a light to billions who will follow.

Except, of course, it’s sometimes lonely.

All hail,

Today’s Recipe: Orange Honey Walnut Salmon

This is a super simple recipe that tastes very elegant. Because the walnuts are toasting the whole time the salmon is baking, they’re perfectly crisp and go so well with the sweetness of the orange and honey. I love this salmon on top of a light salad with a balsamic vinaigrette drizzle. I made this in my toaster oven, which is perfect for hot days!

Luck

“It is a great piece of skill to know how to guide your luck even while waiting for it.”
-Baltasar Gracian (1601-1658)

Go ahead and carry that four-leaf clover, or pick up that lucky penny- it couldn’t hurt! But meanwhile, we need to take the necessary steps to create our own opportunities. By being opening to what presents itself, we become lucky – we recognize when the universe is working to help us realize our goals, and we go along with that plan.
