One thing I’ve learned in my life is the timeless truth that sometimes “to speed up, you must slow down.”
When we slow our roll, we have the opportunity to get present, to be in the moment, get into our lives, and give ourselves the gift of seeing what is going on instead of just doing the do.

Inner Journey: CREATE CONSCIOUSLY

“No man has a chance to enjoy permanent success until he begins to look in a mirror for the real cause of all his mistakes.”
— Napoleon Hill

The law of karma is the law of cause and effect. It works unavoidably when there is no consciousness — when we are not present in the moment. When there is no consciousness, the past creates the future.

The law of Love supersedes the law of karma. It intervenes in the process by focusing in the present. In fact, one could say that Love is being fully present. When anything is initiated in Love in the present, the future of that reality will be purposeful, meaningful, loving and powerful.

“He who is false to present duty breaks a thread in the loom, and will find the flaw when he may have forgotten its cause.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

“In my beginning is my end.”
— T.S. Eliot

Science
“I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.”

-Isaac Newton (1642-1727)


It is with that child-like heart that all great adventures begin. It’s the big “what ifs” in life that spark our curiosity and engage our attention. When we love doing something, it’s not work to us, but play.

Daily Tarot: The Moon

You may be dwelling on your weakness or discomfort, and those things may be real enough, but take heart and know that these things are also temporary and are not going to last much longer. You underestimate or overlook your great powers of recovery and self-healing. You have too much love of life to be kept down for long. Give yourself a break and relax a bit.

Daily Good: My Summer of the Catbird

Nature has a language that we have forgotten but carry in our unconscious minds. Beyond our even knowing, we are called along with the birds to listen to our inner seasons and longings. As author David G. Haskell has said, “In the voices of birds, we hear augury, portent, prophesy. We are drawn across boundaries into other places, other times.” In this beautiful story about a Gray Catbird, we find how one person, emerging from a period of deep grieving allowed herself to listen to the language of birds and to be drawn into a deep relationship that led to an inner transformation. { read more } http://www.dailygood.org/story/2401/my-summer-of-the-catbird-virginia-may-schiros/

Awakenings are hard, awful even.
I wish I was one of those people who’d had an amazing experience, who wanted to tell everyone about their “come to Jesus” moment and how amazing it was.
Mine was not…and apparently, I’m still not there yet.

Inner Journey:

HEALTH AND HELP

“More tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered ones.”
— Mother Teresa

If we are prompted to ask for spiritual blessings for ourselves or others, how do we best do this?

Speaker Kimberly Herkert offers that it is best to simply ask the divine for health and help. As human beings, we are not capable of seeing the big picture for anyone’s situation. As a result, we are not able to judge what is best for anyone, including ourselves.

The Higher Power always knows best, and the general prayer for ‘health and help’ acknowledges the wisdom that exists there and our faith in divine will.

“God answers prayer in His own way, not ours.”
— Mohandas Gandhi

Conscience

“The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.”

-Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird, 1960

A conscience is a very individual thing. We can’t peak inside someone else’s mind to find out just how they arrive at decisions. But we can look at our own thought process. “To Kill a Mockingbird” is a book that really explores the whole concept of conscience. I’m glad that my son will be reading it in school this year, we will have some great conversations about it. I can’t help but picture Gregory Peck as Atticus. I love the way he portrayed this man who was so compelled to follow his conscience. I love the example that this character set for his children.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: Wheel of Fortune

It could be hard to sit still today and every little distraction may look more like an invitation to take a break or start the next thing. Get a lot done anyway by concentrating on short tasks and short conversations. A checklist helps keep things smooth and organized. Afterward, maybe take a nice long walk, stretch those legs, and shake the day’s dust off your shoulders
