Spiritual Unite: The Dragon Keeper – A Symbolic Story About The Kundalini Rising Inside All Of Us 

A symbolic fictional story about the kundalini Rising inside all of us.
Once upon a time, in a far away land, a dragon was formed. This dragon was a creative aspect of you because, energetically, you are a serpent of life. You are the womb of all creation. You were born from the egg. You are destined to be the fire breather, as the raging beast that you are.

Inner Journey:

DREAM!

“The most pathetic person in the world is the person who has sight, but no vision.”
— Helen Keller
What’s the big picture for your life? Always have a larger, purposeful, even spiritually ideal picture of where you are going. Your mind needs to have a clear and challenging vision to draw you ever upwards.
“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and follow where they lead.”
— Louisa May Alcott
“The only limits are, as always, those of vision.”
— James Broughton

Flowers

“Beautiful, tender flowers grow upon the lava lips of Mono craters, pines ascend their ashy slopes, and it is just where the glaciers have crushed heaviest that the greatest quantity of beautiful life appears.”

-John Muir (1838-1914)

Life has a way of showing up. Grass makes its way through cracks in a sidewalk. Daffodils poke through previously frozen ground to find the sun. We might think of flowers as delicate and fragile, but they are strong, and full of life!

-Lissa Coffey

I’m in a relatively unique position to write this how-to: I’ve both messed up big-time AND done so in a spectacularly public fashion. Like, I’ve stepped in it in front of hundreds of thousands of people, offending entire population groups in a single ill-conceived Instagram post.

Beliefnet: 4 Signs of a Life Well-Lived

A life well-lived isn’t measured by material successes.

The older you get the more likely you are to look back on your life and examine it. You start asking yourself if you made the best use of your time on earth, and you start wondering if you lived a good life. While this sort of reflection is often seen in aging people, it is never too early to start considering what it means to live a good life.  Read more…………..

A Bountiful Moment

You don’t decide your destiny. You just decide your next step.

Daily Thought: Keep moving forward one step at a time and when you look back you will discover you have created a wonderful life legacy. Your actions everyday create who you are in the long run. The small steps you take toward your goals daily will manifest as your life destiny.

Daily Practice: Remember today that everything you do will have an effect on what your tomorrow will look like. Use every opportunity you have within your day to accomplish something toward your goal, your dream or your life desire. Even if you only get 5 minutes to spend toward your goals. Don’t let this day slip by without adding to your desired destiny.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

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

Today’s Recipe: Salmon Chan-Chan Yaki

Chan-chan yaki is a Japanese dish that uses fish and vegetables with a sweet and savoury miso sauce. They say that “chan-chan” is the sound the spatulas make when used to flip and piece up the ingredients on the hot pan. This is typically made on an electric griddle at the table with everyone sitting around, but you can use a big pan and serve it up in plates with rice.

MNN: These Are The Fanciest Slugs You’ve Ever Seen!

Some look like cartoon sheep and others like Pokemon characters. Some are cannibals and some are poisonous  and some just like to look extra fancy so that eating them seems like a risky proposition.
