Inner Journey: BREAK OUT OF ROUTINE

“One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.”
— Nietzsche

Where do you need to do some ‘out of the box’ thinking and living?

We are creatures of habit, of patterns. While initially the habits may have served us, they may now be limiting our ability to experience more of life.

What aspect of your life has become routine? How might you bring new life to it? Do some outrageous dreaming! Then do something completely different today.

“When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.”
— George Washington Carver

A Note from the Universe

You see prayers that lack conviction, confidence, and that end in question marks like, “Can I? May I? Will I?” are always answered with a happy face: “Sure! You bet! No question!”

However, if you want action instead of answers… Prayers of declaration and exclamation, especially those that end in “So be it! Hallelujah! Pronto my lofty companion!” conjure up the magic.

It’s just how the system was set up.

Pronto my lofty companion!

Trust
“Those who trust us, educate us.”

-George Eliot, 1874


We learn that to be worthy of trust, or trustworthy, is a good feeling. It’s an honor, really, to have earned someone’s trust. We experience the responsibility that comes with that trust, and we fulfill it, because trust is something we know that we can lose as well as gain.

Daily Tarot: Strength

Although it may be a peaceful day, that calm may all be on the surface. If dissatisfaction or anger is brewing at depth, there could be thoughts or fantasies of revenge or anger to fuel the bad feelings. Face everyone and everything with great care and respect. You have more than enough strength to deal with whatever comes up. Obviously, don’t bait or antagonize anyone. Kindness wins out

This is a ritual that you can hold after a pet has passed away.

You can also turn this into a group ritual if the pet was one who belonged to the entire family.

Inner Journey:

HOW MUCH OF THIS IS MINE?

“The collective energy generated from the feelings, thoughts, and attitudes of the almost six billion people on this planet creates an atmosphere or ‘consciousness climate.’ Surrounding us like the air we breathe, this consciousness climate affects us most strongly on energetic and emotional levels.”
— Doc Childre and Howard Martin

Feeling angry, sad or anxious? You might ask, “How much of this is mine?”

Those of us who are sensitive sometimes pick up on emotional, mental or physical energy in the environment. It feels like ours – we really do feel the emotions or physical or mental symptoms. But really, we are processing ‘generic’ energies that belong to others or to humanity as a whole.

Opening to the possibility that our experiences may not be completely ours helps us detach from them. When we don’t completely identify with our thoughts and feeling

“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear … as it is, infinite.”
— William Blake

Sharing

“For we must share, if we would keep,
that blessing from above;
Ceasing to give, we cease to have;
such is the law of love.”

-Richard C. Trench

By sharing we recognize the abundance of whatever it is we have and are content to allow others to participate in our good fortune. There’s another saying that “love isn’t love until you give it away.” Blessings, like love, are meant to be shared. And whatever we share we seem to have more of

Elephant Journal: 22 Reminders of How to Be a More Grateful Person.

I attempt to teach (by example in my daily life, and through my writing) kids and grown ups how to be more mindful. I am a school teacher (bilingual 3rd grade) and a yoga teacher.
Mindfulness practice—through whatever methods (yoga, meditation, walking, running, gardening, writing, eating, community service, and the like)—results in greater gratitude.

MNN: How to protect the world’s largest living thing
Pando, the world’s largest-known organism, is dying. But there might still be time to save this wonder of nature.

Walking through this aspen grove in Utah, you could be forgiven for missing the forest for the trees. That’s because this isn’t really a grove of 40,000 individual aspen trees, but rather 40,000 clones of one organism — a single root system spread across 43 hectares in Utah. It’s the most massive living thing known to science.

Inner Journey: 

MY WILL OR DIVINE WILL?

“It is important not to ‘need’ what you are calling to you but rather to have a certain detachment about it. Let it be all right if it doesn’t come, or if it comes in a different form than what you expect. After you haveasked for something, surrender to whatever comes as being appropriate.”
— Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

“Acceptance says, True, this is my situation at the moment. I’ll look unblinkingly at the reality of it. But I’ll also open my hands to accept willingly whatever a loving Father sends me.”
— Catherine Marshall

“This business of hozho. The way I understand it … I’ll use an example. Terrible drought, crops dead, sheep dying. Spring dried out. No water. The Hopi, or the Christian, maybe the Moslem, they pray for rain. The Navajohas the proper ceremony done to restore himself to harmony with the drought. You see what I mean. The system is designed to recognize what’s beyond human power to change, and then to change the human’s attitude to be content with the inevitable.”
— in ‘Sacred Clowns’ by Tony Hillerman

Life

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”

-Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)

We need to ask ourselves: Are we living the life that we want to live? If not, then make some changes! Life is too short, life is too precious, to miss out on. Every moment is holy. It is there for us to embrace. How many moments go by without notice? Are we spending our time analyzing the past, which is done and gone – or planning for the future, which is changing every instant? Or are we living, truly LIVING in this moment, NOW, where our life is taking place? It is not enough to exist, choose to live!
