Inner Journey: CREATE HAPPINESS RIGHT NOW

“It is our basic right to be a happy person, happy family, and eventually a happy world. That should be our goal.”
— Dalai Lama

Little adjustments to our attitude and approach each day can create a major difference in our appreciation of life. On the surface, nothing changes. At the same time, absolutely everything does.

Use your awareness or your imagination to bring happiness to this moment. Find something to appreciate. Do this as often as you remember to do so, and your world will transform.

” … we can no longer afford to throw away even one ‘unimportant’ day by not noticing the wonder of it all. We have to be willing to discover and then appreciate the authentic moments of happiness available to all of us every day.”
— Sarah Ban Breathnach

Self
“The unexamined life is not worth living.”

-Socrates (469-399 BC)


We know that there is so much more to life than the distractions of everyday living. That’s why we practice our spiritual rituals. That’s why we read books, and meditate, and pray. That’s why we strive to learn and to grow. Life is so much more full and satisfying when we look within.

Daily Tarot: Temperance

Instinct and impulsive action will cause more trouble than they can solve today, so spend more time reasoning things out and being careful about what you say and do. Asking questions is a good idea. It will get you information you need, and show how thorough, bright, and capable you are. It might take a bit longer, but it will save time and effort in the end.

Inner Journey: OPENING THE HEART

“Everything is made of light; everything is alive. The Great Mystery of life has little to do with intelligence. The universe is not an intellectual process. The intellect is helpful; but our hearts are the wiser partof ourselves.”
— Mellen-Thomas Benedict

Heart is a word that refers to many different levels of our being. Essentially, it is the love aspect of soul, capable of making direct, intuitive contact. Soul love is not emotional; it is highly impersonal and intelligent, capable of grasping the essenceof someone or something without any projection on our part.

Appreciation significantly turns on the heart. Appreciation is not an emotion that arises spontaneously, but a soul quality we can choose. The more often we choose to be appreciative, the easier this choice becomes and the more frequently our heart opensto give and receive love.

“If you open your heart, love opens your mind.”
— Charles John Quarto

Trust
“Trust one who has gone through it.”

-Virgil (70-19 B.C.)


Experience speaks loudly. When we seek advice, don’t we trust someone who has had experience with a subject more than one who merely has an opinion? Experience educates a person in such a way that when that person shares the experience, they can help us to learn, too

People may be expecting or needing you to be laid-back and easy to deal with but your own inclinations may make you seem more difficult and demanding. You may see yourself as just being direct while others consider you as being tactless. Save yourself a lot of grief and use extra care with your words and actions. If someone gets bent out of shape, try to catch it instantly and stop it as soon as you can.

Inner Journey: STAR CONNECTIONS

“The interchangeability of matter and spirit means the starlit magic of the outermost life of our universe becomes the soul-light magic of the innermost life of our self. The energy of the stars becomes us. We become the energy of the stars. Stardust and spirit unite and we begin: One with the universe. Whole and holy.”
— Dennis J. Kucinich

Ponder the spectre of yourself as one human being in the over six billion people on Earth. See Earth as one tiny planet in a galaxy of billions of stars, and that galaxy as just one of billions of galaxies in our expanding universe. We are so minute as to be nonexistent. And yet, we have the power to visualize, to imagine the entirety of the cosmos.

In your journal, write about the paradox of being both microscopic and immense.

“I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if our spirituality were to come from looking not just into infinity but very closely at the world around us — and appreciating its depth and divinity.”
— Thomas Moore

Study
“The great business of study is for a mind adapted and adequate to all times and all occasions; to which all nature is then laid open, and which may be said to possess the key of her inexhaustible riches.”

-Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792)


Study is exercise for the mind. And what happens, is that just like when we exercise our body and we discover how strong we are, when we exercise our mind we discover how wise we are! The muscles were there all the time, but when we work them, and pay attention to their development, they serve us by being able to lift weights, or hike a mountain, or run a marathon. And our mind is there for us to use the same way. We can be creative, we can be problem-solvers, we can be wise. Our strength, both in body and mind, comes from within.

Daily Good: The Art of Waiting

“”Time is the substance I am made of,” Borges wrote in his spectacular confrontation with time, “Time is a river which sweeps me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger which destroys me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire which consumes me, but I am the fire.” We are indeed creatures of time who live with it and in it, on the picketed patch of spacetime we have each been allotted. But if time is the foundational baseboard of our being, what happens to the structure of our lives in a culture of doing? That is what Jason Farman explores in Delayed Response: The Art of Waiting.” Maria Popova shares more in this post.

LIVING THE ADVENTURE

“I do not accept any absolute formulas for living. No preconceived code can see ahead to everything that can happen in a man’s life. As we live, we grow and our beliefs change. They must change.

Meaning
“The need to find meaning in the universe is as real as the need for trust and for love, for relations with other human beings.”

-Margaret Mead (1972)
It’s the age-old question: What is the meaning of life? Living this quest is as natural as breathing. It’s how we learn and grow, all a part of the process of life. We reach out to each other, for comfort, for love, for definition. And many times it is in our relationships that we find the meaning that we seek.
