The keys to creating a kitchen that makes cooking into a beautiful, spiritual experience.
Many of us see cooking as a chore, as an utter annoyance. It’s something that has to be done, but we’re usually unhappy about it. We’re usually cooking at the end of the day when we’re exhausted and weary, and would rather watch TV.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

How aware are you?

“The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention.”
— Julie Cameron

How aware are you of:

  • your senses?
  • your body — its condition, needs and wisdom?
  • your fears?
  • your defences – how you hide what you’re really feeling?
  • your self talk?
  • your beliefs and their power to create your reality?
  • your passions?
  • your purpose?

Go on a treasure hunt to discover your authentic self and the truth of life in and around you!

“Relative to the level of awareness that is possible for us, our ordinary state of consciousness is as far from a direct experience of reality as sleep is from waking consciousness.”
— Don Richard Riso & Russ Hudso

“Exchange is creation.”

-Muriel Rukeyser


The creative process is fascinating. Everyone goes about it in his own way, but in almost every case, creation does not happen alone. People give us ideas, inspiration, encouragement and support. There’s an exchange of energy that makes things happen, or allows things to happen. We’re better for it, and our projects are better for it.

Inner Journey:

POWER

“There are two kinds of men who never amount to much: those who cannot do what they are told, and those who can do nothing else.”
— Cyrus H. Curtis

How do you relate to people in authority? Depending on your character and upbringing, you may react defensively or meekly to those you perceive to hold more power than you do.

Hierarchical power dissolves in the presence of authentic power. Your true personal power has nothing to do with status. It is determined by how attuned you are to all aspects of yourself and to the needs of others.

In any exchange with a person ‘in power,’ focus your attention on meeting your mutual needs and the relationship will be both equitable and fruitful.

“Compassion, caring, teaching, loving, and sharing your gifts, talents, and abilities are the gateways to power.”
— Jamie Sams

Being a home weaver is a revolutionary act. Jessica Green shares her life as a weaver, “remembering the importance and sacredness of cloth”; and as a homesteading anti-capitalist entrepreneur. “Being a weaver and a homesteader,” Green says, “is a lifestyle that’s based both in remembering and trailblazing.” Follow her as she takes wool from sheep to woven cloth and explains her choices to “live with the yoke of that responsibility and help other people joyously carry that yoke”. { read more }

NEED TO LET GO OF CONTROL?

“The world is not to be put in order; the world is order, incarnate. It is for us to harmonize with this order.”
— Henry Miller

Ego believes that it needs to protect us from external dangers. Through control and manipulation, it aims to keep us safe. This need of ego is based in fear.

If we hope to live in love, we must become acquainted with soul. Experiencing soul brings a deep knowing that this is a loving universe. Experiencing soul also builds faith. We learn to trust that we don’t have to run the show. And when we do this, we tap the source of true freedom and joy.

“It is not action or effort that we must surrender; it is self-will, and this is terribly difficult. You must do your best constantly, yet never allow yourself to become involved in whether things work out the way you want.”
— Eknath Easwaran

“True spiritual surrender responsibly opens itself to the unknown.”

LONELINESS

“When humans find themselves surrounded by nothing but objects, the response is always one of loneliness.”
— Brian Swimme

Soul lives through relationship and it is in soul that we find meaning. We can have meaningful relationships with people, animals and other beings, projects, ideas and ideals.

How much time do you devote to building relationships with things?

“Loneliness is caused by an alienation from life. It is a loneliness from your real self.”
— Maxwell Maltz

“No soul is desolate as long as there is a human being for whom it can feel trust and reverence.”
— George Eliot

Chance
“What can be more foolish than to think that all this rare fabric of heaven and earth could come by chance, when all the skill of art is not able to make an oyster!”

-Jeremy Taylor (1613-1667)


Is there such a thing as chance, or coincidence, or serendipity? Or is everything carefully orchestrated and organized by a Higher Power? Chance seems to be the unexpected, but then we have to think: who is doing the expecting? Something might come as a surprise to us, but it might also have been planned in the cosmos since before time.

You can more fully embrace this change in the near future.

“Peace comes not from the absence of conflict, but from the ability to cope with it.”

Angeles Arrien says that life will be simple if we follow the four-fold way counselled by indigenous peoples:

  1. Show up, being present with all four mental, emotional, physical and spiritual intelligences.
  2. Pay attention to what has heart and meaning.
  3. Tell the truth without blame or judgment.
  4. Be open to outcome, not attached to outcome.

Chance
“There is no such thing as chance; and what seems to us the merest accident springs from the deepest source of destiny.”

-Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller (1759-1805)


Sometimes when we look at something very close up, it doesn’t make sense. Like when you have just one piece of the puzzle, you can’t figure out what the whole picture is. But then when we pull back it all comes into perspective, we see how everything “fits” together. Everything happens for a reason, we’re all here for a reason. It might not make sense to us, but as time goes on and things fall into place, we see the big picture – and we see that it is beautiful.

Daily Good: The Wisdom of Forgetting What You Know

I think it’s much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong.

  • Richard P. Feynman –

The Wisdom of Forgetting What You Know

We are so afraid to let go, to just be, to allow the unfolding of this marvelous life without getting in the way. This fear keeps us paralyzed and stuck. And longing for the peace that is possible — if only we would put down all the efforts we make to know. There is no greater gift you can give yourself than the invitation to enter the world of not knowing. Why? If you are always going to know what you know now, things will always stay the same. How could they change? And by thinking you know what will happen, you are closing yourself off to the unimaginable — endless peace, unspeakable joy, awe and wonder.” Gail Brenner shares tips on how to “forget what you know.” { read more }

Dwell in your own places of not-knowing today.

Inner Journey: HOPE AND DISAPPOINTMENT

“It’s precisely the disappointing stories, which have no proper ending and therefore no proper meaning, that sound true to life.”
— Max Frisch

“Don’t get your hopes up!”

Were you warned of this as a child? What does this say? It says that life is bound to disappoint you. It says, don’t aim high because you’re not likely to get what you want. It says that we can’t expect good things to happen to us.

As our thinking creates our reality, this kind of thinking dooms us to a mundane existence. It’s time to change our stories. Why not focus the immense power of our hearts and minds on bringing to fruition the very best life has to offer? Allow yourself to hope and believe in all possibilities.

“Hope is the companion of power, and the mother of success; for who so hopes has within him the gift of miracles.”
— Samuel Smiles

Chance
“Where observation is concerned, chance favors only the prepared mind.”

-Louis Pasteur, 1854


Sometimes we get ourselves into such a routine that we lose our power of observation. We don’t see the forest for the trees, so to speak! But when we open up our vision, expand our awareness, we start to see patterns. And then we see that things are not so random at all. We can prepare ourselves, and make what seems like “chance” work in our favor.

Inner Journey: SPIRITUAL PATHWAYS

“In any way that men love me in that same way they find my love: for many are the paths of men, but they all in the end come to me.”
— Song of God, Bhagavad Gita

Spirit – the life force – exists in everything. It follows, then, that ANY path, any encounter is spiritual if we have the awareness to see it as such. Going deeper, going higher, emptying, connecting, believing or disbelieving, bouncing off the bottom, experiencing the heights, in pain, in ecstasy ….

Too often, we search afar for our own purpose when it is in our lives all the time, waiting for us to express it more openly. Bring greater awareness to each encounter and situation in life. Tune in to what you are inspired to do, who you are inspired to be. Your answers are waiting for you to pay attention – every moment!

“…focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.”

Daily Good: Love Letters from Seaweed

You are a function of what the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing.

  • Alan Watts –

Love Letters from Seaweed

“Love Letters from Seaweed was created during the summer months I spent exploring mid-Coast Maine. Each day just before sunrise, I biked to Birch Point Beach to witness the shores changing topography and the traces of ocean life spilled by the tide. Intrigued, I photographed spontaneous configurations of seaweed and natural artifacts in unworldly colors, brought together by spume and sand.” Visual artist Katherine Minott shares more. { read more }

Inner Journey: PERFECTIONISM

“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

“The maxim ‘Nothing but perfection’ may be spelled ‘Paralysis.'”
— Winston Churchill

“After enough mirror gazing, we all develop our ‘cosmic sense of humor.’ We no longer try to be perfect, or try to get all our work done in time. We become content with whatever life brings. Just to deal with what comes up without crucifying ourselves or others is enough of a challenge.”
— Paul Ferrini

“Good enough never is.”
— Debbi Fields

Self
“I can honestly say that I was never affected by the question of the success of an undertaking. If I felt it was the right thing to do, I was for it regardless of the possible outcome.”

-Golda Meir (1898-1978)


This is conviction. This is instinct. We all have the ability to listen to our hearts, to take on the big undertakings, in spite of any doubts or questions. We just need to summon the courage to do so. When we know our self so well we can’t help but do anything less.

Daily Tarot: Wheel of Fortune

Whatever you have planned or prepared for today, it probably won’t happen according to the script. Be flexible and expect the unexpected. It may not be anything big, so don’t completely abandon your agenda unless you must. It could just be a day of endless interruptions. Keep that sense of humor handy, and maybe find an inspiring idea or two in it all.

Treehugger: 10 Facts About the Historic Glacier Basin Trail

The Glacier Basin Trail is a moderate out-and-back hiking path that leads to the base of Mount Rainier in Washington. It starts at the upper end of White River Campground, follows the White River through a deep glacial valley flanked by Mount Ruth and Burroughs Mountain—8,690 and 7,828 feet, respectively—then ends, after a few miles of gentle climbing, at the foot of Inter Glacier, located on the northeast face of Rainier.

Inner Journey: HONOUR YOURSELF

“I’d gone through life believing in the strength and competence of others; never in my own. Now, dazzled, I discovered that my capacities were real. It was like finding a fortune in the lining of an old coat.”
— Joan Mills
Take a moment to stop and think about what you give to the people and life around you. Don’t think about what you’re not doing right. Look instead at all you do that is a blessing. Many of us continually beat ourselves up for not doing or being enough. But imagine for a moment that you are great just as you are. Feel the relief this brings! Now open to the possibility that this is not a daydream. It’s true! Believe it!
“People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.”
— Norman Vincent Peale

“We cannot rise higher than our thought of ourselves.”
— Orison Swett Marden

With regard to the things that really matter– insight, understanding, and sense of adventure – rest assured, you’re already a billionaire. And we’re talking about the kind of currency you can take with you.

Self
“Behold, I do not give lectures of a little charity,
When I give I give myself.”

-Walt Whitman (1819-1892)


The best, most valuable gift we can give is the gift of our self. We know when our heart is in something and when it’s not. We feel it when we’re just going through the motions. And when we give of ourselves, we’re also giving to ourselves, because that feeling of giving is so powerful, and so freeing, that we grow in the process

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.
