Pioneer Thinking: Yogurt Remedies

I didn’t grow up eating yogurt, I got introduced to it as an adult. At first, I was unimpressed, but I’ve gotten used to it, and I love some of the uses it can be put to. Many people point to its uses in cooking, and there are quite a few uses, but I’m more impressed by the other things it can be used for

MBG: Weekly Horoscope: There’s An Important Quarter Moon Coming Our Way

This week, the AstroTwins break down three major astrological transits we have in store.
Neptune squares with Venus on Monday, and it’ll leave us all feeling scatterbrained.
Too much of a good thing is, well, not a good thing. But everyone’s susceptible to overdoing it this Monday, June 24, as nebulous Neptune crashes into a boundary-challenging square with decadent Venus

Daily Good: The Gift of Humility

The act of receiving a gift from another requires recognition of our dependence on those around us. Yet it can be difficult for us to live in a space where we’re confronted with the notion of giving up control. “From the air we breathe, to the body we each inhabit, we are living a profound gift, and yet, we can struggle to see and relate to life as a gift,” writes Colette Lafia, a San Francisco-based spiritual director, workshop leader, and writer. In this article from gratefulness.org, Lafia examines how we can bring more gratitude into our lives by accepting humility as a component of our humanness, and offers a practice to cultivate greater togetherness.

MNN: How to identify a tree by its bark

EarthSky News: Come to know the Summer Triangle

We in the Northern Hemisphere can see the Summer Triangle for part of the night at any time of the year. But seeing it in summer is the most fun! As suggested by its name, the Summer Triangle is most prominent during the summer season, for us at mid-northern latitudes. Seeing the Summer Triangle again and again on summer nights is a deep pleasure that adds to the enjoyment of this season.

Patheos-Pagan: Spinning Without Motion Between Three Elements…

One looks with both eyes at the tip of the nose, sits upright in a comfortable position, and holds the heart to the centre in the midst of conditions. In Taoism, it is called the yellow castle, in Buddhism the centre of the midst of conditions. The two are the same. It does not necessarily mean the middle of the head.

LISTEN TO THE QUIET VOICE INSIDE

“To know how to choose a path with heart is to learn how to follow intuitive feeling.”
— Jean Shinoda Bolen

What ideas are teasing you these days?

Are you aware of any little gems floating around your consciousness these days? Charged little thoughts that beckon you to pay attention to them? Inspiration and intuition often bring powerful new ideas to us very subtly, very quietly. When you become aware of being teased by an idea, follow it!

“Get your ideas on paper and study them. Do not let them go to waste!”

Colors

“Red has been praised for its nobility of the color of life. But the true color of life is not red. Red is the color of violence, or of life broken open, edited, and published.” -Alice Meynell, The Color of Life, 1896

I don’t think there are any “bad” colors – just different emotions and connotations that we associate with them, just like we do with anything else. Red it interesting that way- it’s vibrant and bold – and yet can signal danger, and heat. Like anything, it’s our own perception that we impose on it.

The mind shouldn’t be allowed to play tricks on us.
It is, after all, our only interface with reality, processing every sensation in every moment to define our very existence.

Present

“We are tomorrow’s past.”

-Mary Webb, Precious Bane, 1924

We can’t change what has happened in the past. We can learn from it, and grow from it, and ultimately go on from where we are now. We cannot predict the future – it is filled with infinite possibilities. The best we can do is to live, and love, the moment we’re in. Life is like Disneyland – if we are thinking about the next ride and how we’re getting there, we can’t enjoy the ride we’re on right here and now!

“Your voice is as unique as your twelve-stranded DNA. However, many don’t know how to access it. Our schools and social conditioning don’t offer many clues. Yet the human voice is everyone’s birthright. It is a universal given, a bridge between the worlds, the soul’s messenger, a gift of spirit capable of inspiring evolutionary shifts in consciousness. Your authentic singing voice is the muscle and mouthpiece of your soul. As unique as your fingerprint and DNA, your soul has a melody, a rhythm, and a resonance that is yours alone.

PERSONAL POWER

“The deep root of failure in our lives is to think, ‘Oh how useless and powerless I am.’ It is essential to think strongly and forcefully, ‘I can do it,’ without boasting or fretting.”
— Dalai Lama

Angeles Arrien says that whether we are male or female, we need to develop three kinds of power. People who hold these three powers cannot be ignored.
1. Power of presence – Being really present in each moment
2. Power of communication – Speaking my truth
3. Power of position – Being willing to take a stand

“A man’s true state of power and riches is to be in himself.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

“We are no longer puppets being manipulated by outside powerful forces; we become the powerful force ourselves.”
— Leo Buscaglia

A Note from the Universe

You know here in the unseen, where everything is always spotlessly clean, all gadgets work, dust never settles, and everyone’s fit as a fiddle, we often miss the deep sense of satisfaction that you feel for a job well done, breaking a sweat, busting a move or otherwise living such blessed physical lives in such a magically spiritual world.

Truly, magic on its own, without even a smidge of suspense… bores.

You should see how fit I am,

Compassion

“It is the experience of touching the pain of others that is the key to change… Compassion is a sign of transformation.”

-Jim Wallis

Compassion is not limited to the human experience. Although, as intelligent beings, we can understand and express compassion and extend comfort to one another. My friend Maryanne sent me an article about a herd of elephants who appeared to be mourning one of their own who had died. They cried. I don’t know if elephants can understand with their minds just what they were experiencing, but they certainly were able to understand with their hearts. And we can empathize with them, we can project our own feelings of loss onto this situation and learn and grow from it.

A Note from the Universe

OK, can you keep a secret?

Let me tell you what happens…

There’ll be trumpets, fanfare, and parades. Happy tears, giggles, and hugs. Shrieks of joy, fits of laughter, and reunions with best friends.

There will be quiet, reflection, and revelations. Aha’s! No-way’s! And, of course, You-have-to-be-kidding’s!

Eventually followed by a deep, often surprising, longing for what will by then be viewed as the dream-life you led.

You could plot it on a chart.

The point of course, is that you are now living that dream-life.

Tallyho,
