EarthSky News: Seek a daytime moon after sunrise

The April 2020 full moon – the closest and largest supermoon of the year – recently lit up the night sky all night long, from dusk till dawn. Right now, however, the moon is now displaying a waning gibbous phase, so it rising in the east well after sunset. But it is also setting in the west after sunrise.

Inner Journey:

FILL UP YOUR TANK

“How do we keep our inner fire alive? Two things, at minimum, are needed: an ability to appreciate the positives in our life – and a commitment to action. Every day, it’s important to ask and answer these questions: ‘What’s good in my life?’ and ‘What needs to be done?'”
–NathanielBranden

I have found there’s a very different quality to my action when it springs from a sense of abundance as opposed to a feeling of being impoverished.

When I sense I’m not good enough or that I don’t have enough, I feel driven to be better and to have more. Whatever I do takes effort – there’s an element of struggle involved. And this makes sense because there’s no fuel – I’m working on an empty tank.

When I’m feeling abundant, I act out of my own inspiration. I’m rich and full and so the energy flows naturally. This action at times feels almost effortless.

It’s important to remember that we don’t need money to be abundant. All we need is appreciation of all that we have.

” …what I focus on in life is what I get. And if I concentrate on how bad I am or how wrong I am or how inadequate I am, if I concentrate on what I can’t do and how there’s not enough time in which to do it, isn’t that what I get every time? And when I think about how powerful I am, and when I think about what I have left to contribute, and when I think about the difference I can make on this planet, then that’s what I get. You see, I recognize that it’s not what happens to you; it’s what you do about it.”
— W. Mitchell

Meaning
“Life is not meaningful… unless it is serving an end beyond itself; unless if is of value to someone else.”

-Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-1972)
How many times have we heard the phrase: “There’s more to life than…”? We KNOW there is more to life, more than pettiness, or selfishness, or indulgence, or whatever! We find value in life when we reach out and go beyond our comfort zone – when we help others, when we see how our work resonates out into the world. Life is full of opportunities for us to find meaning, and to create meaning.

-Lissa Coffey

EarthSky News: Year’s biggest supermoon on night of April 7-8

In North America, we often call the April full moon the Pink Moon, Grass Moon or Egg Moon. This year, in 2020, this April full moon also presents the closest (and thereby the largest) supermoon of the year. That’s because this full moon more closely coincides with lunar perigee – the moon’s closest point to Earth in its monthly obit – than any other full moon in the year 2020.

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.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Can you feel me? Right now? In the air on your skin, under your feet, and in the palms of your hands? The tug at your heart, the rhythm it keeps, and the blood in your veins?

Right. Now, next time you have cause for alarm, see me. Next time you need absolutely anything, listen to me. And next time you feel all alone, remember you’re not.

Meaning
“The world is not divine sport; it is divine destiny. There is divine meaning in the life of the world; of man, of human persons, of you and of me.”

-Martin Buber (1878-1965)
Sometimes we just have to pause and ask “why?” Think about it. There are no accidents, there is meaning everywhere. There is this organizing power at work in the world. We have our place in the world, and our tasks to complete. The people we meet, the people we love, are all a part of our lives for a reason. We can learn from all of our experiences, and become better people from living life consciously and meaningfully.

Daily Dream Meaning: Flying

1. The dreamer’s basic ambition, drive, goals, and dreams. If the dreamer is flying like a bird, then he can accomplish his goals almost on his own. If the dreamer is flying in an airplane, or other sort of airship, he will need assistance. If the weather around him is turbulent, the path to success will be rocky and strewn with obstacles. If it is clear, the path ahead should be straightforward and easily traveled. If others are flying with him, he needs to gather the support of others in order to attain his goal.
Astrological parallel: Uranus.
Tarot parallel: The World.
2. A harbinger of a happy time in the dreamer’s life – as if she is “flying high.”
Astrological/Tarot parallel: The Sun.

Mystery
“The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.”

-Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)
This is a big concept. The invisible could be love, for example. Is that so mysterious? Love just “is.” We know it, we feel it, we treasure it. We can count on it; it doesn’t go away. But the visible, that can be transitory. We can ask, what is its purpose? What is our relationship to it? If we can accept the invisible as reality, we can look at the visible in another light. So, what is real? That is the mystery!

Temperance is a card that symbolizes moderation, so if you’ve been indulging a bit too much in your love life, it’s time to tone things down.

No effort, no matter how small, goes unrewarded.

Inner Journey:

INNER CRITICS

“We tell ourselves so many lies and half-truths … We listen and are duly impressed by these inner voices that turn into unseen judges that nag at us. We give each of these judges a seat of honor in our minds, all the while hating their guts and their never-ending supply of judgements … We give the judges permission to accompany us on each journey of life, never daring to realize that we can park them, at least momentarily.”
— Eloise Ristad

“The Inner Critic makes each of us a child. As we become the child in our relationships, we lose our sense of self. We are no longer self-contained, self- respecting adults. We look to others for validation. Our self-worth is based upon their opinion of us. Thus, everyone around us becomes a mother or a father whose support and approval is desperately needed to protect us from the constant criticism of the Inner Critic.”
— Hal and Sidra Stone

How else could you draw new friends from the unseen? How else would your heroes, heroines, and scoundrels know when to appear, or move on? How else would your “stars” get their cues?

True, they think their own thoughts, too. How else would you know who to cast in each scene?

Just thinking of you, and your power to choose.

Enthralled,

The Universe

Mystery
“Mystery is not the denial of reason but its honest confirmation: reason, indeed, leads inevitably to mystery…: mystery and reality are the two halves of the same sphere.”

-Walt Whitman (1819-1892)
It seems like we don’t even know what we don’t know! There is just so much to learn, so much to comprehend – so much that we don’t understand. And when we find a new topic of study, we learn a little bit and it opens up a whole bunch of questions! In that way mystery is beautiful. It lets us know that there is always more to be revealed.

Spirit Library: Integration (a message from Kate Spreckley)

It is becoming very clear that the turmoil unfolding in the world today is a sign that change is needed. With the challenges facing us now it is obvious that a new vision of how we can live together in a new way is needed. Expanded consciousness, which integrates the spiritual with the physical, the heart with the mind and the soul with the human is now essential.

Daily Good: How Does A Heart of Service Respond to These Times?

“Coronavirus has uprooted the fabric of our lives. How does a heart of service respond to an unknown cause and how do we build resilience when we can’t be physically together? Uncertain times raise significant questions that can architect a new story for our future. Carbon emissions have dropped dramatically, but xenophobia is rising. Nursing homes are being evacuated, only to bring elders home to their families. Shopping malls are empty but family meals are on the rise. Awakening of kindness is pervasive, but the inequality of human suffering is evident. Borders are still present, but the boundaries of our shared humanity are getting blurry. Yes, undercurrents of fear are everywhere, but so are prayers. Jack Kornfield recently shared, “The virus isn’t happening to us; it’s happening for us.” Last week 90 individuals from across the ServiceSpace ecosystem circled online to explore the call of these times. { read more }

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 part of 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 essence of 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 opens to give and receive love.

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

Mystery
“The more unintelligent a man is, the less mysterious existence seems to him.”

-Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)
For concrete evidence of mystery, we could go to a library and count up how many topics we know nothing about. Even the most scholarly people, experts in their fields, understand that there is more for them to learn. The world just operates that way. It is changing and growing and evolving just as we are – so there will always be some mystery for us to happen upon. Existence is big, and it is ours to discover.

Inner Journey:

BRING SOUL INTO THE WORLD

“We live in a culture that is greatly biased against the imagination, because our culture is very materialistic, objective and literal. Our culture lacks soul, and doesn’t know it, although it experiences the consequences. When you don’t know what’s missing, then of course you don’t know what to bring in, even though you feel something is missing.

“We live in a world that needs more soul, more meaning. We, as conscious beings, have, as our primary responsibility, at this time in human history, the task of bringing soul into the world, or releasing soul into the world. We do this, first of all, in ourselves and in our own personal world; then we do it in our groups – including family; then we do it in our society through our work, relationships and presence there.”

Daily Good: Teaching & Learning from the Heart in Troubled Times

“The current moment calls for moral ferocity. We should not sleep well at night when we know others are suffering. We need to raise our voices with clarity and channel our anger into protest and resistance. Ferocity itself, though, holds danger. Let’s not forget that some of the worst perpetrators of evil have often claimed to act in the name of the good, or God, or the national interest, or a future utopia. By claiming the moral high ground, and labeling our opponents misguided, we run the risk of doing great harm in the name of good. I suggest that we balance our moral ferocity with humility and tenderness.” Rabbi Ariel Burger, an author, artist and long-time student and friend of Elie Wiesel shares more in this timely essay.{ read more }
