Mind Body Green: How Mindfulness Could Help you Save The Planet
By now most of us are aware of the hot mess called global warming. Many of us are trying to make changes and become part of the solution: to recycle, choose renewable energy whenever possible, or review investments with sustainability in mind. All the while, there is tremendous positive momentum toward a clean-energy transition under way, involving trillions of dollars around the world and impressive commitments coming from Amazon to AT&T, from Boston to Beijing, from Paris to the pope.

MNN: The mysterious beauty of the zodiacal light
Once upon a time, before cities banished darkness and electrified the night, a glow on the horizon betrayed not the presence of civilization, but a hauntingly beautiful phenomenon known as the zodiacal light.
This triangular tower of light, also known as a “false dawn,” is a fleeting specter, often appearing for less than an hour at the end of evening twilight or just before morning twilight. What’s particularly fascinating about it, however, isn’t just its ethereal glow, but what causes it to occur in the first place
A Bountiful Moment:
You are amazing just the way you are.
Thinking that you have to change to be better, or to get what you heart desires will only lead to a fruitless chase and waste of time. You have everything you need and you are perfect just the way you are.
Today strive to grow from the perfect point you are at and continue your amazing life. Remind yourself that you are amazing and that you already possess everything you need. Your quest to be better is only growth not change. You will always be perfect no matter where you are or what you are going through.
Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: The Mystery Of The Lady In The Woods
I think every village in Britain has a secret or two. A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to find one of the ï¿½secretsï¿½ of the village of Otterden, the mysterious Lady in the Woods.
A friend of ours, Dan, had told us about the Lady in the Woods. Sheï¿½s a nine foot oak statue of a woman who can be found in the woods by a field in Otterden in Maidstone, Kent
“We are continually faced with great opportunities which are brilliantly disguised as unsolvable problems.”
— Margaret Mead
“A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.”
— Francis Bacon
“What is opportunity, and when does it knock? It never knocks. You can wait a whole lifetime, listening, hoping, and you will hear no knocking. None at all. You are opportunity, and you must knock on the door leading to your destiny. You prepare yourself to recognize opportunity, to pursue and seize opportunity as you develop the strength of your personality, and build a self-image with which you are able to live — with your self-respect alive and growing.”
— Maxwell Maltz

“All business proceeds on beliefs, on judgments of probabilities, and not on certainties.”
-Charles W. Eliot
Let’s look at this in terms of business in the broadest sense. For example, we are all running the business of our lives. We’re the CEO. Many of the same principles that apply to running a business then apply to us in this way. There are no certainties in life – we make decisions based on what we’ve learned so far, and maybe a little bit of intuition.
