Thought For The Day: March 15, 2019 “Moving Forward”

Happy Friday ,

We end our week with a simple reminder to keep looking ahead. While it’s OK to remember the past we need to be mindful not to get caught up in it. When we dwell in our past we become stuck in it and unable to move forward. The key lies in learning the lessons and taking that knowledge to create something better. use the words Change- Adapt- and Grow as your mantra of forward progress.

Spiritual Unite: The Mystery Of Rising Sign In Your Horoscope

Before we begin and get into all sciency stuff, let’s make sure you are familiar with the concept of Horoscope.
Horoscope is an account of the exact position of all the planets and stars at the time of one’s birth. It attributes towards forecasting future predictions and also the characteristics of an individual. Based on this date, time and location sphere, everyone is assigned a specific zodiac sign which represents a particular set of traits and features. It is also referred to as the life sign.

Daily Good: A Call to Caring

“At the heart of caring is an ‘and’ not an ‘or’. Deep within us lies a potential that transcends our artificial limitations. Can we embrace the possibility that we are fully capable of caring globally, in every direction — that the compass of our caring could open 360 degrees?” In his new book ‘Caring’ Tibetan lama Tarthang Thulku dives deep into an exploration of caring the potent antidote it offers to the ills of our time. The following excerpt, authored by his daughter shares thoughts on how to create a more caring world

Elephant Journal: How to Stop Spewing your Past all Over your Present.

An old lover of mine recently posted on social media:
“You’re going to date a few cowards before you meet someone brave enough to love you.”
My initial response: What a fucker.
My sarcastic response: Jeez, thanks.
My annoyed response: But wait…I thought you didn’t believe in love?
My snarky response: Shit…she must be brave to love you.
My snarkier response: Mirror mirror.

EarthSky News: Watch for Taurid fireballs!

Various sources give wildly different dates for the peak date of the long-lasting South Taurid meteor shower (active from late September to late November). November 4, 2018 is one of those predicted dates. Thus both November 4 and November 5, 2018 are good nights to watch for meteors, possibly featuring a higher-than-average rate of South Taurid meteors.

Patheos-Pagan: Pan-Celtic Hoofbeats: Finding Your Patron Deity

I notice a lot of new Pagans asking how to find a patron deity. They often sound worried about not having one yet, or not sure how this miracle is supposed to take place.
Newbies, this is a crone speaking. You are fine as you are. Take your time. You will never have it all figured out, anyway! Run like hell from anybody who says they have!

Inner Journey: 

INSPIRED TO CHANGE?

Are you getting the most benefit from these short Inner Journeys? Here are some ways to progressively stimulate more and more growth and change from these messages:
•Read them quickly for momentary inspiration and move on to the next email.
•Print them and keep them visible so you are conscious of the message during the day.
•Take just 30 seconds and write in your journal as little as one word or a few sentences about how you connect with each message.
•Take just 3 to 5 minutes to relax, reflect and contemplate on the messages that touch you. And then write a short note in your journal.
•When a message really hits home, make the effort to explore the program that delves into that topic more deeply.

At a minimum, if a message strikes any nerve at all, take a few seconds to become aware of what nerve was struck and what it means to you.

This process builds awareness, and awareness brings change and growth – automatically!

“Everyone stumbles over the truth from time to time, but most people pick themselves up and hurry off as though nothing ever happened.”
— Sir Winston Churchill

Beauty

“Beauty is life when life unveils her holy face.” -Kahlil Gibran

When does life unveil her holy face? When we remove the veil of illusion before our eyes. We see things so obscured by the pressures and demands of our lives. Never mind the forest for the trees – we don’t see the blessings for the bills! But every once in awhile, it catches us by surprise. We are moved by beauty. It is a gentle reminder of God’s presence. Maybe it’s a dandelion growing through a crack in the sidewalk – a sign that life is meant to be lived despite any obstacles. Maybe it is a neighbor’s smile, or a beneficial “coincidence.” In any case, our lives are beautiful, we are beautiful, even if we need to be reminded of it every once in awhile.

Spiritual Unite: What Does Soul Connection Feel Like?

You might wonder what does soul connection feel like, especially if you are in such a relationship or you are looking for your true love. To know about it genuinely, first, you should learn what a soul connection is? As the name indicates, soul connection is the association of the two souls; both of these souls are from the same

MBG: How To Use Essential Oils For Seasonal Allergies

When it comes down to it, seasonal allergies can be downright miserable. According to recent research, allergies are getting worse every year and scientists say it’s due to climate change. The characteristic symptoms of allergic rhinitis (hay fever) runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing, sinus pain, and a general feeling of “yuck”can be worse than the worst of colds, or even the flu! No wonder millions of people race to their local pharmacy and doctor’s office every year looking for over-the-counter and prescription medications to find some relief.

Spirituality & Health: 3 Earth-Friendly Swaps for Summer

Earth Day is over, but summer is just starting to heat up. It’s so liberating to get outside and enjoy all that Mother Nature offers, from long hikes in the woods and mountains, to swimming in beautiful beaches and lakes, and exploring desert trails. But we have to take care of Mother Nature, too, just as she cares for us. For this week, let’s look at three ways we can be nicer to the planet, all summer long

I consider myself extremely fortunate that I’ve experienced a great deal of hardship in my life.
Without these hardships, I doubt that I would have become the compassionate human being that I am today. Without the hardships I’ve experienced, I may never have found my Buddhist path.

Patheos-Pagan: The Ordinary Life Of A Witch – Dishes, Dinner, & Devotion

Today started out like most every other day at the Witches Next Door’s house. I woke up first and went into the kitchen. Lighting the stove with an absent minded click of my fingers, I brewed the morning coffee and filled the mugs from across the room by reciting effundam et lac. It’s one of our favourite spells. We use it all the time.

Inner Journey:

FOLLOW THROUGH AND COMPLETE

“Activity is not achievement. It is not enough to rush about beginning a lot of things and keeping busy. A well-spent life is one that rounds out what it has begun.”
— Eknath Easwaran

Intention and the words we speak are powerful. When we say we are going to do something, we set energy in motion. When we fail to act or complete our intention, we drain our energy. We lose our power.

We would be wise to choose our words carefully — to really mean what we say and to honour the commitments we have made.

“Genius begins great works; labor alone finishes them.”
— Joseph Joubert

“Good to begin well, better to end well.”
— English proverb

A Note from the Universe

Some people just have big hearts. And with this gift they’re very often able to feel, offer, and show far more love than they receive from those around them. Which, at times, is a heavy load to bear. So today I’d like to remind them, and especially you, that the sun asks not that the moon and planets help brighten each day, but relishes her role as a keeper of the light and a bringer of the dawn. A role much like your own.

Today’s Recipe: Strawberry Limeade

This is great for when you have guests or are just wanting a drink. It tastes great.

Ingredients:
•4 limes, cut into chunks
•6 cups cold water
•1 cup of sugar

Connection

I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence, but it comes from within. It is there all the time.” -Anna Freud

We are wholly complete and capable human beings. Perhaps our greatest lesson in life is to understand this. We don’t need to look outside ourselves for anything. All that we have, all that we are, is more than enough – it’s perfect!
