Daily Good: The Art of Weaving

In the tapestry of life, we’re all connected. Each one of us is a gift to those around us helping each other be who we are, weaving a perfect picture together.

  • Sandra Day O’Connor –

The Art of Weaving

Being a home weaver is a revolutionary act. Jessica Green shares her life as a weaver, “remembering the importance and sacredness of cloth”; and as a homesteading anti-capitalist entrepreneur. “Being a weaver and a homesteader,” Green says, “is a lifestyle that’s based both in remembering and trailblazing.” Follow her as she takes wool from sheep to woven cloth and explains her choices to “live with the yoke of that responsibility and help other people joyously carry that yoke”. { read more }

Be The Change

What “yoke of remembrance” are you willing to carry forward in your own lifetime? How can you support others in theirs?

Collaboration


“There are three ways of dealing with difference: domination, compromise, and integration. By domination only one side gets what it wants; by compromise neither side gets what it wants; by integration we find a way by which both sides may get what they wish.”

-Mary Parker Follett


A certain energy is generated when people work together. And many times the total outcome is greater than the sum of the parts. We each have something to contribute. We can put our heads together, and our talents together, and come up with solutions to all kinds of challenges

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Do as much as you can today and feel gratified.

Daily Good: Before You Know Kindness: A Poem by Naomi Shihab Nye

I’ve always loved the definition for contemplation: “a long, loving look.” And when you take a long, loving look anywhere, you feel more bonded with whatever you’ve looked at.

  • Naomi Shihab Nye –

Before You Know Kindness: A Poem by Naomi Shihab Nye

“Before you know what kindness really is you must lose things, feel the future dissolve in a moment like salt in a weakened broth.” Thus begins Naomi Shihab Nye’s poem Kindness, animated poignantly by Ana Perez Lopez for the On Being Project. The poem, first published in 1980 and read softly here by the poet, contrasts strikingly with the typographical approach to the animation done during the pandemic lockdown of 2020. “Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside, you must know sorrow as the other deepest thing.” Nye’s words have relevance for us now as we not only negotiate great losses but reemerge to a new normal, with Kindness, for “only Kindness makes sense anymore”. { read more }

Inner Journey: ALL IS MIND

“I want to know the thoughts of God; the rest are details.”
— Albert Einstein

Everything — absolutely everything — that happens in our lives has a spiritual cause. Events on all other levels — mental, emotional and physical — are only effects.

When we are struggling with any challenge, whether it be ill health, a lack of money, a lost job, relationships, an accident, whatever — we need to look for the spiritual learning. We can ask ourselves, “What quality does my soul want me to live more fully?”

“If you start to think the problem is ‘out there,’ stop yourself. That thought is the problem.”
— Stephen Covey

A Note from the Universe

If you were to realize that right now, this very instant, as you read this email, you were actually dreaming…

And you realized that, as is true of all dreams, you are your dream weaver, and all that’s necessary for something to happen next in this dream is for you to DEEPLY expect it…

And you understood that nothing else you could do would bolster your expectations more than vividly imagining what you wanted, and then demonstrating, via some minor physical gesture each day, that you believed in its inevitability…

Could you pull it off? Would you believe and behave in spite of the circumstances that now surround you (the old dream still lingering before your physical senses)?

Would you at least try to redirect the ship of your life? Muster the courage, the faith, and the will to at least pretend??

You’ve been doing it your whole life. It explains your every friend, romance, and happiness; your “lucky breaks,” your connections, and the coincidences; the finds, the steals (deals!), and the clutch comebacks. There was NO mountain high enough to keep Cat Bolotin down (and back then… you didn’t even know you were dreaming!). And there NEVER will be.

Tallyho,

Power
“The instruments of power – arms, gold, machines, magical or technical secrets – always exist independently of him who disposes of them, and can be taken up by others. Consequently all power is unstable.”

-Simone Weil (1934)


We need to remain unattached to any outside trappings of power – the job title, or money, or whatever it is that “gives” us power. Because when those things go away, as they invariably do, being transitory and unreal, then our power vanishes with them. Instead, recognize that our real power comes from within, and it can never be taken, it can never be lost.

Inner Journey: LIVE IN RELAXATION

“It would be glorious to see mankind at leisure for once. It is nothing but work, work, work.”
— Henry David Thoreau

Is relaxation possible only when we’re not working? No. With awareness and practice, we can be relaxed no matter what we are doing. In fact, when we work in a relaxed state, our productivity increases as our effort decreases.

For true relaxation, we need to connect with our bodies — to consciously and intentionally become aware of tension and release it.

“Anxiety breaks a man’s backbone.”
— Hebrew proverb

“Don’t hurry, don’t worry. You’re only here for a short visit. So be sure to stop and smell the flowers.”
— Walter Hagen

A Note from the Universe

That’s right. This is a dream.

You’re still asleep. Any minute now, an elephant might appear behind you wearing a pink tutu and tennis shoes. Or maybe the phone will ring, and it’ll be Abraham Lincoln to ask why you’re late for the ball. Or perhaps Oprah Winfrey is down the hall, live audience in tow, about to introduce you as her new favorite author. Anything can happen in a dream, anything, without regard to the past, without regard to logic, and you never have to figure out the “hows.”

Learn from your dreams, because the stuff of time and space is no different. Forget your past. Pitch the logic. And drop the cursed hows.

Regret

“Regrets are as personal as fingerprints.”

-Margaret Culkin Banning, 1958

Regret is personal because it really affects the one who is going through it. And we each experience regret in a different way. Some regrets are offered up with an apology, others eat away at a person. They can be big or small regrets – but we each feel them in a different way. Since we are here to learn and grow, it would be difficult to go through this life without any regrets. As long as we recognize that we are where we are because of everything –what we regret and what we don’t – then we will continue to move along the path, learning and growing all the way,

Inner Journey:

IN CONFUSION

“It is while trying to get everything straight in my head that I get confused.”
— Mary Virginia Micka

When I get confused, when my mind is wrestling with what to do, I have learned to abandon my thought processes completely. The best solution, I’ve discovered, lies in asking my heart for direction. This requires that I stop my mental chatter, either by sitting in silence or by doing something completely different. In quiet, still space, I often know what’s needed, with a clarity I never get from the labouring of my mind.

And I now know, without doubt, that when I’m confused is never the time to act. I must wait for clarity.

“I have never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.”
— Daniel Boone

Greatness
“Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings.”

-Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)
It all starts with us – right where we are. We have the capacity for greatness, we have the ability to achieve and accomplish whatever it is that we set out to do. But do we know this? Do we believe it? Do we act as if this is true? Or do we hesitate, procrastinate, or hedge our bets? We must be confident and forge ahead if we are going to get anywhere. And how far we go is simply a matter of how fast we move and how long we keep going!

-Lissa Coffey

Like a butterfly coming out of its cocoon, you have the chance to transform yourself into something completely new and different. An ending will inevitably take place in order for you to do so, but accepting the loss for what it is speeds up the healing process
