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

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.

Inner Journey: TWO VIEWS

“… no matter what our difficulties may be, we recognize that there is a deep untroubled stream flowing below all surface troubles and that we are of one substance with that stream. The soul knows no difficulties.”
— James Thornton

Masters teach that we can experience two completely different states of reality at the same time — from the personality and from the soul.

Author Pema Chödron talks about being hungry, cold and tired but at that same time deeply content. Ram Dass speaks of how the emotional heart can be breaking while we recognize that all is unfolding perfectly.

Allowing our soul to be present with the discomforts of the personality shifts our experience of the discomforts.

“True self simply refers to the aspect of our being that is completely aware of its expanded nature no matter what we may be experiencing in our lives.”

“I am much fonder of receiving letters, than writing them: but I believe this is no very uncommon case.”

Remember when we were little, and the whole experience of going out to the mailbox was magical? And those days when we received mail of our very own were so special, like a surprise! Receiving letters is still special, and it’s good to remind ourselves of that. We can actually make someone’s day by writing them a letter. Just that small act of kindness, of attention, can bring a smile that lights up the world.

Inner Journey: THE EYES OF THE SOUL

Today, we want to share a passage from Martia Nelson’s book, ‘Coming Home’:
“My greatest teacher was the experience of living in split realities: personality and true self. Personality is our daily companion, our conscious self that sees the world through the eyes of limitation and dutifully keeps us informed about what we can and cannot do. True self, on the other hand, patiently stands by, offering the unwavering knowledge that a state of vibrant well- being and unlimited possibility is our true nature, a birthright that can be lived if we choose to do so. … True self simply refers to the aspect of our being that is completely aware of its expanded nature no matter what we may be experiencing at the time.”

Whenever we feel constrained, fearful, unworthy, inadequate or anything we deem to be negative, we have identified with our personality. We can always choose to view the same situation from the perspective of our soul.

“As a Witness, you begin to discover that you are not that which you have been observing; you are not those things that you have been noticing about your body. Instead, you are the noticer.”
— Wayne Dyer

Wise Woman Herbal Ezine: Dandelion – A Spring Tradition
by Linda Conroy

“At least three green leaves a day for 30 days” I declared as I stood in the center of my overgrown “weedy” garden. I was planning to undertake a personal experiment. I was preparing to test the hypothesis of wild forgers, herbalists and the practices of traditional cultures around the globe. I wanted to know personally what would happen if I ate three dandelion leaves every day for thirty days.

“Birds have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and hummingbirds have held a special place in my heart for the simple reason that they, early on, became personal to me. On some level, you could say I became a writer because of hummingbirds, and they have appeared in my fiction since I was very young.” Jeff Vandermeer shares more in this lovely essay. { read more }

Inner Journey: HOW DO YOU SHOW YOU CARE?

“Love is not only something you feel. It is something you do.”
— David Wilkerson

In her book, ‘No Less Than Greatness,’ Mary Manin Morrissey speaks of a research study that explored how family members communicate with each other. Apparently, the most frequently spoken words between husbands, wives, sisters and brothers were “What’s on?” and “Move.”

She goes on to say, “We all desire great relationships but often settle for just getting by. Many of us have stopped questioning the fact that we may know fictitious TV families more intimately than we do our own.”

The most powerful force in our lives is our ability to love. Indeed, it’s the most basic essence of who we are. How do you experience and express your love for the people in your life?

“The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the other…. The whole purpose of life is to live by love.”
— Thomas Merton

What if there was only you, and the rest of the world was “make believe,” imagination? If even the people in your life were drawn there, or faded away, based upon your thoughts.

Would it then be easier for you to grasp the true meaning of limitless? Would you then believe that you alone make your reality?

Cat, the rest of the world is “make believe,” imagination. And all the people in your life are there or fade away based upon your thoughts.

Wow… that was easy.

Inner Journey: WHY ARE YOU DOING THAT?

“What we see depends mainly on what we look for.”
— Sir John Lubbock

Throughout the day, continually ask yourself about your underlying motivation. Why are you doing what you are doing?

Is it for selfish, manipulative or fearful reasons? Is it for honest service with integrity? Maybe you’ll discover you don’t know. Perhaps you will see that much of your activity lacks purpose.

This is a great way to become more conscious. Your intention and motives are fundamental to the results you will receive. Set high intentions and your life will blossom.

“The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.”
— Oliver Wendell Holmes

Truth be told, no matter how logical or intuitive you are, neither of these virtues, no matter how greatly you were endowed, will ever enable you to peer into the future and reasonably predict the twists and turns your life may take, nor the circumstances, fortunes, and friends that might someday be your own. It is, in fact, impossible.

Regret
“Repeated polls over the years have found people’s biggest lifetime regret is not getting enough education or not taking it seriously enough.”

-Malcolm Ritter “What We Come to Regret,” San Francisco Chronicle, 1993


If we look at regret in a healthy way, it would be saying to ourselves: “What could I have done differently?” And in that way we are learning from our experiences. There is also the possibility that we may change our experiences – as in this example, we could still get more education, and take it seriously. We have choices all the time – so maybe regret is a call for us to make another choice.

Daily Tarot: The Devil

Your instincts may be heightened and a bit off today, and this could lead you to make some wrong decisions or assumptions. Then, you run the risk of pouncing on these assumptions and acting out of a bad impulse. Keep your emotions under control and back away from impulsive actions of any kind. Today they are traps that lead to embarrassment at best, and harm at worst.

Inner Journey: HOW DO YOU WORK WITH ANGER?

“Character isn’t inherited. One builds it daily by the way one thinks and acts, thought by thought, action by action. If one lets fear or hate or anger take possession of the mind, they become self-forged chains.”
— Helen Douglas

How do you feel about anger, in yourself and in others?
How do you deal with it?

Anger is powerful energy. If we are afraid of this energy, we may attempt to deny or hide it. And when we lack control of the energy of anger, we impose it on other people or things.

The ways we react to anger usually reflect how we experienced anger as children and how our own anger when we were young was handled by the adults at the time.

In reality, anger, like any emotion, brings us information. It tells us how we feel about what is being experienced. If we receive anger’s message and learn more about ourselves, the energy will pass.

“Too often we underestimate how quickly our feelings are going to change because we underestimate our ability to change them.”
— David Gilbert

Genius
“Does it not appear to you that versatility is the true and rare characteristic of that rare thing called genius – versatility and playfulness? In my mind they are both essential.”

-Mary Russell Mitford, 1813


Versatility, flexibility, enthusiasm – these are all traits that I would associate with genius. You’ve got to be able to go with the flow, take what comes and adapt – and you’ve got to love what you’re doing to be able to keep doing it until you reach the desired results. It’s hard work, and it’s also insight, seeing “inside” and having that vision that keeps you going.

Seven Crystals for Ostara

Ostara is also known as the spring equinox and is a celebration of fertility, rebirth, and renewal. At this point in the wheel of the year, day and night are of equal length and in perfect equilibrium.

Read more….

__________________

“The name Ostara goes back to Jacob Grimm, who, in his Deutsche Mythologie, speculated about an ancient German goddess Ostara, after whom the Easter festival (German: Ostern) could have been named. Grimm’s main source is De temporum ratione by the Venerable Bede. Bede had put forward the thesis that the Anglo-Saxon name for the month of April, Eostur-monath, was named after a goddess Eostre. Ostara is one of the four lesser Wiccan holidays or sabbats of the Wheel of the Year. Ostara is celebrated on the spring equinox, in the Northern hemisphere around March 21 and in the Southern hemisphere around September 23, depending upon the specific timing of the equinox. Among the Wiccan sabbats, it is preceded by Imbolc and followed by Beltane. In the book Eight Sabbats for Witches by Janet and Stewart Farrar, the festival Ostara is characterized by the rejoining of the Mother Goddess and her lover-consort-son, who spent the winter months in death. Other variations include the young God regaining strength in his youth after being born at Yule, and the Goddess returning to her Maiden aspect. Ostara is the virgin Goddess of spring. This holiday concerns the deity’s trip to the underworld, and their struggle to return from the Land of the Dead to Earth. When they accomplish this return, they have a life renewed. It was considered bad luck to wear anything new before Ostara, so the people would work through the winter in secret to make elegant clothes for the Sabbat celebration. The entire community would gather for games, feasting, and religious rituals while showing off their clothing. The modern belief that eggs are delivered by a rabbit known as the Easter Bunny comes from the legend of the Goddess Eostre. So much did a lowly rabbit want to please the Goddess that he laid the sacred eggs in her honor, gaily decorated them, and humbly presented them to her. So pleased was she that she wished all humankind to share in her joy. In honor of her wishes, the rabbit went through the entire world and distributed these little decorated gifts of life”

Inner Journey: LAUGH!

“We don’t laugh because we’re happy, we’re happy because we laugh.”
— William James

Why laugh?

Laughter nourishes the soul and triggers joy. It’s a natural stress reliever. It stimulates the immune system and increases oxygen, stamina and our breathing capacity. Medical literature is full of reasons to laugh for the health of it.

Don’t rely upon your funny friends, favorite sit-com or jokes to tickle your funny bone — just laugh for the joy of it!

“Laughter is like the human body wagging its tail.”
— Anne Wilson Schaef

A Note from the Universe

I have a special request to pass on to you, directly from the morning sun, herself; echoed by the clear blue sky, the earth under your feet, and the trees in your life who long for your presence.

From time to time, however sporadic or brief, they’d absolutely adore your undivided attention.

I’d want to know, so I thought you would, too.

Wood,

The Universe

Trees
Trees are the lungs of the earth. Just as we breathe oxygen into our lungs and exhale carbon dioxide, so trees breathe carbon dioxide into their leaves and exhale oxygen.”

-Helen Caldicott, If You Love this Planet (1992)


Reciprocity. There is a science to it. We’re here for a reason. Trees are here for a reason. We can learn from each other, grow with each other, help each other breathe!

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: The Moon

If you’re feeling vulnerable or in a vulnerable or fragile position, take half a step back and give yourself more breathing room. You’re actually doing fine, but if that’s not your perception then nothing will convince you otherwise. If you need a break or a little time off, see if you can arrange it, if only for a few hours. This is not a show of weakness. Take care of yourself.

Inner Journey: NOTHING NEEDS TO BE FIXED

“If you are ready to accept all which you find in yourself, you will be able to move through everything with deep sensitivity, awareness, love and understanding.”
— Gerd Ziegler

As we understand it, the spiritual journey is not about becoming perfect. It’s about acceptance, releasing judgment, and embracing everything in wholeness.

This is a great challenge for our personality. We’ve grown up comparing ourselves to others, always judging how we’re better and worse than those around us. And many of us are very good at finding fault with ourselves.

If we release judgment, then nothing needs to be fixed — including you. Explore inviting your soul to help you accept all that is and experience a whole new way of living.

“Wherever you are is always the right place. There is never a need to fix anything, to hitch up the bootstraps of the soul and start at some higher place. Start right where you are.”
— Julia Cameron

Longevity
“The brain is the organ of longevity.”

-George Alban Sacher (1917- 1981)


Longevity here means not only length of life, but vitality, too, both health and happiness-wise. Why is longevity important? Because the more time we have here on earth, the more opportunity we have to learn and to grow. That’s what we’re here for. That’s what it’s all about. So we might as well make the most of the years that we have, get it all in!

From around the world these two nights – February 26 and 27, 2021 – the moon will likely appear full to the eye on both nights as it lights up the nighttime from dusk till dawn. In North America, we call the February full moon the Snow Moon or Hunger Moon. As dusk turns into darkness on February 26, you may see a bright star pop out rather close to the moon. That’s Regulus, the brightest star in the constellation Leo the Lion.

Inner Journey: OPEN TO THE MOMENT

“Why not concentrate on the now instead of hoping for better times in the future? Why not understand the now instead of forgetting it and hoping for the future? Isn’t the future just another trap?”
— Anthony de Mello

Soul exists only in this moment. Every moment, no matter what the conditions, offers opportunities to touch and experience life in a new way. Our egos, with their fears and desires, easily get trapped in the past and the future, but the power to change exists only in this moment.

We don’t need to know more or have more before we can live more deeply. We simply need to pay attention to what’s happening now. To open without judgment to the worlds around and within us.

“Nothing is worth more than this day. You cannot relive yesterday. Tomorrow is still beyond your reach.”
— Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Failure
“To think of losing is to lose already.”

-Sylvia Townsend Warner, 1951


The mind is a very powerful tool. With it we create our reality. The surest way to fail is to focus on failure. Instead, we can picture ourselves doing well, achieving, succeeding, and being happy. When we drive, we look ahead to where we are going. We can’t drive by looking in the rear view mirror. We can’t drive by looking over at the ditch on the side of the road. We need to pay attention to where we want to go, and head in that direction
