They say that food cooked by one’s mother is incomparable to any other.
For me, this is especially true. My mother channels “Annapūrṇa”—the Indian Goddess of food and nourishment (the name literally means “filled with or possessed of food”) in the kitchen effortlessly. Her mother—my grandmother—was a level higher; she was the Goddess Annapūrṇa herself, I believe.

Inner Journey:

GETTING DOWN TO ESSENTIALS

“Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.”
— Lin Yutang

Do you feel a desire to simplify your life?

If you say ‘yes,’ then set an intention to reduce the demands, stimuli, interruptions and busyness in your life. We each have the power to do this – we simply have to begin to say ‘no’ to those activities that don’t directly serve what we want for our lives.

Everyone of this planet deserves to have some free time to think, relax and have fun. If you long for this, begin now to clear your plate and allow a new level of experience to happen in your life. Take charge. Eliminate time wasters. Make some decisionsabout what matters to you.

“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.”
— Hans Hofmann

Contentment
“Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure, nor this thing nor that, but simply growth.”

-William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)


Contentment looks different to everyone. We may not be able to define it, or recognize it when we see it, but we can certainly feel it. Happiness and contentment spring from within

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Tower

The biggest danger you face today is being aloof and thus fail to see an approaching problem. This can cost you the chance to intercept the difficulty and minimize it, if not avoid it all together. Pay attention without getting paranoid, and take nothing and no one for granted. Danger may not lurk within every single shadow, but a small misstep can sometimes cause problems that are way out of proportion to the cause.

Spirit Library: Focus on Your Healing (a message from Kate Spreckley)

The upcoming Full Moon and Equinox offer an opportunity to move on from the past. The incoming energies are helping us to transform old wounds into understanding, clarity, and wisdom so that we may shift our perspective and gain a new vision of the future. As a result, anything that is not in alignment with our soul is being transformed, altered and or removed which will help us to deepen into our intuitive nature and integrate the shifts and changes we have experienced in the past few months.

Inner Journey:

PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR EMOTIONS

“Emotions are the next frontier to be understood and conquered. To manage our emotions is not to drug them or suppress them, but to understand them so that we can intelligently direct our emotional energies and intentions…. It’s time for human beings to grow up emotionally, to mature into emotionally managed and responsible citizens. No magic pill will do it.”
— Doc Childre

Many of us believe that we need to keep a tight lid on our emotions. We fear that if we ever allow these emotions to be expressed, they will do serious damage.

But if we summon up the courage to truly feel our emotions, we discover that they don’t last. The monster in the closet turns out to be a pussycat. In fact, if we are willing to experience our emotions completely, without resistance of any kind, they burn themselves out in only a few minutes.

The only thing that keeps emotions alive within you over long periods is your unwillingness to acknowledge them.

“By starving emotions we become humorless, rigid and stereotyped; by repressing them we become literal, reformatory and holier-than-thou; encouraged, they perfume life; discouraged, they poison it.”
— Joseph Collins

Inner Journey:

CO-CREATION

“[Manifestation is] the art of fashioning a co- creative, synchronistic, and mutually supportive relationship between the inner creative energies of a person’s own mind and spirit and their counterpart within the larger world in order to bring a new and desirable situation into being.”
— David Spangler

I have always understood that Spirit works through us. Only recently have I really come to appreciate how Spirit works WITH us. The divine life force partners with our unique perspective, our passion and our skills to create new life situations.

We are not passive vessels for God’s will. To realize our highest potential, we must co-create with the divine.

“We must see ourselves as co-manifestors — partners in manifestation — all engaged in the primal act of unfoldment and emergence. Each act of manifestation may be directed toward a specific outcome, but it also contributes to the greater manifestation of the wholeness, love, compassion, and creativity of the primal source from which we all come.”
— David Spangler

Inner Journey: WISDOM

“…we need to abandon the idea that wisdom is knowing everything-the whys, the wherefores, the how-tos. Wisdom is often more subtle, both far simpler and exceedingly more complex. For wisdom requires the discerning, the listening to, the acknowledgement of nudges and notions, of senses and sensations, of the minute and what we often mistakenly assume is the mundane. Wisdom means listening to the still, small voice, the whisper that can be easily lost in the whirlwind of busyness, expectations, and conventions of the world….”
— Jean M. Blomquist

“Nine-tenths of wisdom is appreciation. Go find somebody’s hand and squeeze it, while there’s time.”
— Dale Dauten

“To finish the moment, to find the journey’s end in every step of the road, to live the greatest number of good hours, is wisdom.”

Communication is a term that is used to express the dialogue and understanding between people. There is definitely an art to this. It’s not just what we say but how, and when, we say it. We need to be sensitive as to how our words are being interpreted. And communication is reciprocal, it is both giving and receiving. When we speak we are giving information, and receiving someone’s attention. When we listen we are receiving information and giving our attention.

Clear up a misunderstanding and free up some time and space to begin something you’ve been wanting to do but felt beyond your means. You might also come to an understanding with someone who has been an obstacle for you, whether because of pride, some power struggle, or other kind of competition or misconstrued sense of prestige or self-importance. Today, you are the equal of anyone. Be gracious.

Inner Journey:

BE TRUE TO YOURSELF

“In the final analysis, we count for something only because of the essential we embody, and if we do not embody that, life is wasted.”
— C.G. Jung

Where are you not being true to yourself?

All blocks arise when we’re not being authentic, when we’re not being true to ourselves. We know we’re not being authentic when we feel discomfort of any kind.

When our thoughts, feelings and actions align with our essence, we express the qualities of soul. Always trust that your soul knows what’s best for you.

Believe in yourself and act on your ideas. Give yourself permission to do what you want with your life. Take the initiative to set meaningful goals for yourself and achieve them. Begin to tell yourself why you CAN have what you want!

“A true knowledge of ourselves is knowledge of our power.”
— Mark Rutherford

Eyes
“The eye of the beholder may govern what is seen.”

-James MacGregor Burns


We have heard the saying that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, but this takes it one step further. Whatever it is that we see is interpreted through our eyes and our brain and we give it meaning. Whether it’s beauty or anything else. What values are we putting on things? What are we reading into anything we see? It’s interesting that when two or more people witness the exact same event, and then they describe it, it can seem like totally different experiences!

Inner Journey: REFLECT ON YOUR LIFE

“Reflection is one of the most underused yet powerful tools for success.”
— Richard Carlson

Regularly, take time to reflect on what has been happening in your life. Step back to work ON your life instead of IN it. See yourself as the C.E.O. of your own personal company, or as the captain of your own ship. Are you navigating the waves as well as you might?

Stepping back helps us see a bigger, more inclusive picture. Small events make more sense in the bigger scheme of things.

“Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.”

Waiting
“There is a difference between the waiting of the prophet and the standing still of the fool.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)


This is an issue we all struggle with at one time or another. It can be difficult to wait, it can be difficult to be patient. And yet, it is so often necessary! Everything has its own time, its own season, and more often than not we are the ones who have to adjust to fit in with the grand plan. But waiting doesn’t have to mean standing still, or wasting time. We can use our time wisely, even when we are waiting.

WHAT ARE YOU LACKING?

“Money cannot fill an empty soul.”
— Julia Cameron & Mark Bryan

Where in your life are you experiencing lack?

Are you experiencing a lack of self esteem? Of humour? Of energy? Of love? Of money and abundance? Whatever you believe you are missing, it is there to be claimed.

The first step starts with shifting your perspective. See the glass as half full rather than half empty. Focus on accepting and appreciating what you DO have, and more will be attracted to you.

“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend… when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present — love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure — the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth.”

Inner Journey: HEALTH AND HELP

“More tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered ones.”
— Mother Teresa

If we are prompted to ask for spiritual blessings for ourselves or others, how do we best do this?

Speaker Kimberly Herkert offers that it is best to simply ask the divine for health and help. As human beings, we are not capable of seeing the big picture for anyone’s situation. As a result, we are not able to judge what is best for anyone, including ourselves.

The Higher Power always knows best, and the general prayer for ‘health and help’ acknowledges the wisdom that exists there and our faith in divine will.

“God answers prayer in His own way, not ours.”
— Mohandas Gandhi

Victory
“Victory comes, at times, just when one no longer expects it.”

-Martin Buber (1878-1965)


Have you ever had those times where you’re trying to think of a word, or a person’s name, and no matter how much you search your brain you can’t seem to find it? And then later, when you relax, when you’ve given up and let it go, it comes flooding back to you clear as day! That’s the law of detachment at work. Whatever you are striving for, release and let it go, then it is free to be yours.

EarthSky News: Delta Aquariids 2021: All You Need To Know

Moonlight to obtrude in 2021
The long and rambling Delta Aquariid shower presents meteors from about July 12 to August 23 each year. The nominal peak falls on or near July 29. Yet, the shower usually provides a decent number of meteors for several days after and before the peak. Unfortunately, in 2021, the bright waning gibbous moon will probably wash out a good number of these rather faint meteors. As we move into early August, a much fainter waning crescent moon will be less intrusive.

Inner Journey:

LOVE YOURSELF

“It’s surprising how many persons go through life without ever recognizing that their feelings toward other people are largely determined by their feelings toward themselves, and if you’re not comfortable within yourself, you can’t be comfortable with others.”
— Sydney J. Harris

“We have the need to be accepted and to be loved by others, but we cannot accept and love ourselves. The more self-love we have, the less we will experience self-abuse. Self-abuse comes from self-rejection, and self-rejection comes from having an image of what it means to be perfect and never measuring up to that ideal. Our image of perfection is the reason we reject ourselves the way we are, and why we don’t accept others the way they are.”
— Don Miguel Ruiz

“There is no freedom like seeing myself as I am and not losing heart.”
— Elizabeth J. Canham

“If we could learn to like ourselves, even a little, maybe our cruelties and angers might melt away.”
— John Steinbeck

Virtue
“If self-knowledge is the road to virtue, so is virtue still more the road to self-knowledge.”

-Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (1763-1825)


We’re here to learn and grow, to know more about our selves. Virtue is something we have to define individually. It’s natural evolution for us to become more virtuous as we move along the path because we understand more about ourselves and our true nature.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Spirit Library: Let Go of Distractions (a message from Kate Spreckley)

The form and structure of our world continues to dissolve bringing to a close certain aspects of our lives and our reality. We are being forced to let go of the past and the foundations of our reality which have sustained the dysfunctional facets of life on Earth. As a result, we are being urged to heal the ancient wounds of the past which have kept us stuck in continuous cycles of pain and suffering.

Daily Good: Practicing the Art of Wonder: Lessons from the Hummingbird

My work is loving the world.

  • Mary Oliver –

Practicing the Art of Wonder: Lessons from the Hummingbird

“A Broad-billed Hummingbird hangs for a few seconds, not three feet away. The brilliant sapphire gorget flashes for an instant, and then the tiny bird is gone in a shot, his raspy cry fading like a lost thought into the oaks. I close my eyes and try to feel the impact that the hundreds of hummingbirds I’ve seen over the past few days have had on my psyche. The swirl of their presence, their diminutive size, their radiant color, their adroit quickness, their bickering flurries, all seep into me, and finally well up into awed appreciation, just for their being in the world. Past, future, and self fall away. In that moment, Ive become the planet-as-human, in wonder at hummingbirds, feeling them as part of the splendor of life.” { read more }

Inner Journey: LIVE YOUR OWN LIFE

“We don’t always know what makes us happy. We know, instead, what we think SHOULD. We are baffled and confused when our attempts at happiness fail…We are mute when it comes to naming accurately our own preferences, delights, gifts, talents. The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed, even strangled, by the voices of other people’s expectations. The tongue of the original self is the language of the heart.”
— Julia Cameron

We are each unique beings with a unique path in life. If we wish to be fulfilled, we need to go to our own hearts for direction. We might regularly ask ourselves:

“What do I really want to do?”
“What brings me greatest happiness?”
“How can I bring more of these into my life?”
Life wants us to go for what brings us most joy and meaning.

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. …I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.”
— Oriah Mountain Dreamer

“Let me listen to me and not to them.”
— Gertrude Stein

“What you must dare is to be yourself.”
— Dag Hammarskjold

Names
Juliet: “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.”

-Shakespeare (1564-1616)


Shakespeare has a point here in that a name is a label, and in many cases, merely an identifier. But at the same time, those letters, and syllables, come to signify something to us that is meaningful. The word alone conveys the meaning that we have attached to it.

Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man

Possibly a romantically disquieting day, you may begin to suspect that your love is not being returned, at least not in kind. Or perhaps you can’t bring yourself to return the affections of an ardent admirer. This might feel even worse. The head and heart don’t always speak the same language or have the same opinions. Be strong and as kind as you can.
