The glittering leaves of the rhododendrons
Balance and vibrate in the cool air;
While in the sky above them
White clouds chase each other.
–John Gould Fletcher (1886–1950)

TAKE A BREAK!
“A good rest is half the work.”
— Yugoslav Proverb
Strong work ethic? You can still justify taking a break. In fact, we NEED to take breaks — regularly and frequently. Why? WE WORK MORE EFFECTIVELY WHEN WE DON’T WORK SO MUCH.
Rest periods and vacations break our work routines. They help SHIFT OUR THINKING from its habitual, stuck patterns. They create the SPACE FOR ENERGY AND CREATIVITY to flow. They give us TIME FOR REFLECTION, so we can step back and look at what’s happening in our lives with greater detachment. We become more sensitive and aware.
And finally, we are stronger when we BALANCE DOING with BEING. All work and no play throws our life out of balance and endangers our health. Our bodies and minds need sufficient rest for recuperation. This is critically important with the level of stress in our lives these days.
“The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.”
— SidneyJ. Harris
“I still need more healthy rest in order to work at my best. My health is the main capital I have and I want to administer it intelligently.”
— Ernest Hemingway
A Note from the Universe
One sign of achieving enlightenment other than auras, tinkling bells, and a healing touch, is that you start valuing idle daydreaming as much as you value planning.
Another is that you begin talking sweetly, not only to plants and trees, but to cars and toasters and computers.
And, quite unequivocally, feeling gratitude for your present challenges, love for lousy drivers, and sympathy for those who don’t see service in their work.

“A thing is worth precisely what it can do for you; not what you choose to pay for it.”
-John Ruskin (1819-1900)
If we take the example of a car – a car is not just transportation. If it were, we’d all be driving very fuel-efficient, non-descript vehicles. A car has become a symbol – of our wealth, our style, our priorities. A Mercedes costs more money not just because it is more expensive to produce, but because people are willing to pay more for the prestige associated with the name. So, the car is providing necessary transportation, but also the “image” that the driver wants to project. Is the image worth the price? It’s just a matter of personal preference. We have choices, in cars and in everything.
Daily Tarot: The World
You may not expect or even want it, but today you will be properly acknowledged and even honored for a skill, talent, or accomplishment. Your big heart will also be appreciated. Some sort of public reward is possible, if only in the form of praise, which can be transformed into something more tangible later. If not seeking validation or kudos, be on the alert because it’s coming. You’ve earned it!
