______________

February Birthstone : Amethyst

Birthstone Color: Purple

If gazing into the sparkling purple depths of an Amethyst suffuses you with a sense of powerful well being, this is only to be expected. The ancient Greeks believed that this gemstone held many powers, among them protection against intoxication. In fact, the word Amethyst comes from the Greek word “amethystos,” meaning sober. In ancient Greece, the gemstone was associated with the god of wine, and it was common practice to serve this beverage from Amethyst goblets in the belief that this would prevent overindulgence. Even today, Amethyst is considered a stabilizing force for those struggling to overcome addictive behaviors.

For the Sake of One We Love and Are Losing: A Meditative Poem

The origin story of “For the Sake of One We Love and Are Losing” lies in a dream that writer Phyllis Cole-Dai had last year. This remarkable poem was published in the early days of the pandemic that has now claimed over 2 million lives worldwide.

Inner Journey: LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE

“Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.”
— Aldous Huxley

What was your peak experience of this past week? What was your most challenging experience?

Stepping back to review your week can offer many insights. Normally we can’t see the forest for the trees. Now back away and see the whole forest. Review your week. Now write a short summary — whatever comes to mind for you. If action is required, planhow you will accomplish it in the next week.

“Ask the experienced rather than the learned.”
— Arabic proverb

“Experience is that marvellous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.”
— Franklin P. Jones

Did you hear the dueling choirs when you rose from bed this morning?

Did you see the dancing flames of joy far off upon the horizon?

Did you feel waves of love rolling in, as if from one billion surfing hearts?

It was your peeps again. There was another Love-a-Thon for Earthlings. “Show yours how much you care, act now, don’t delay! Time on earth can seem so perilous without love! Let’s see who can reach theirs now!”

You won. Again.

Love your kind,

Choice
“The strongest principle of growth lies in human choice.”

-George Eliot, 1874


We make choices all the time, pretty much every moment of every day. We choose when to get up, what to wear, what to eat. And we make big choices, too – whom to marry, where to live, how to live. Every choice we’ve made up until now has brought us to this point in time. We have learned from our choices, and we have grown. Where do we go from here? It’s our choice.

a message from Kelly M. Beard

As we enter the current Pisces energy, many people will be feeling more sensitive than usual, picking up all kinds of information via all six senses. Over-sensitivity that disrupts your flow and takes you away from your center is one thing, but a better way to think of this energy is to ponder the concept of how sound penetrates when you put your head under water.

SMART QUESTIONS TO KEEP HANDY

“Quality questions create a quality life. Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.”
— Anthony Robbins

Last time, we talked about questions to avoid. Today, let’s consider some that are truly empowering:
• Is there a message for me in this experience?
• What’s the gift in this situation?
• What can I learn from this?
• What’s the most loving thing I could do now?
• What’s the most important thing for me to focus on now?
• What would I do if I knew I could not fail?
• What would I do if there were nothing to fear?

“A prudent question is one-half of wisdom.”
— Francis Bacon

A Note from the Universe

You know how sometimes when you visualize you end up daydreaming, too?

Or when you finally remember to perform an act of faith, it feels kind of hokey?

Or sometimes you catch yourself worrying, or thinking too much about the past, or wondering whether or not you have invisible limiting beliefs holding you back?

Well, that’s exactly what all Illuminates go through (especially the good-looking ones). But they arrive in spite of it, and so will you.

Worry not; just keep chugging.

Sharing

“Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed and hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world.”

-John Lennon (1940-1980)

With the world in such a state of flux, it might be difficult to imagine ALL the people sharing all the world… but it is not impossible. There’s a saying: “Think Globally, Act Locally.” If we each started there, kind of a “grass roots” or “backyard” approach, imagine the impact we could make house by house, neighborhood by neighborhood, community by community.

Inner Journey:

THE EYES OF THE SOUL
Today, we want to share a passage from Martia Nelson’s book, ‘Coming Home’:
“My greatest teacher was the experience of living in split realities: personality and true self. Personality is our daily companion, our conscious self that sees the world through the eyes of limitation and dutifully keeps us informed about what we can and cannot do. True self, on the other hand, patiently stands by, offering the unwavering knowledge that a state of vibrant well- being and unlimited possibility is our true nature, a birthright that can be lived if we choose to do so. … True self simply refers to the aspect of our being that is completely aware of its expanded nature no matter what we may be experiencing at the time.”

Whenever we feel constrained, fearful, unworthy, inadequate or anything we deem to be negative, we have identified with our personality. We can always choose to view the same situation from the perspective of our soul.

“As a Witness, you begin to discover that you are not that which you have been observing; you are not those things that you have been noticing about your body. Instead, you are the noticer.”
— Wayne Dyer

Ability

“The workman is known by his work.”

-La Fontaine (1621-1695)

This applies in every area of our lives. The artist is known by his (or her) art. Whether the art is music or baking, whether the work is teaching or construction or stock trading – our work is a representation, an expression of ourselves. It’s one way that the world recognizes us. It is one way that we contribute to the world. So we must always strive to work to the best of our ability, to do the best that we can do. In doing so we honor ourselves and our abilities.

Your instincts may be heightened and a bit off today, and this could lead you to make some wrong decisions or assumptions.

Today they are traps that lead to embarrassment at best, and harm at worst.

Patheos-Pagan: 4 Mundane Skills To Support Your Spiritual Work 

There are two popular attitudes around the role of the spiritual and the mundane in our lives and both of them are wrong.
One says that everything is spiritual. We’re in constant communion with all living beings. Our Gods and ancestors walk beside us every step. We inhale energy and exhale magic. All those pesky little things like rent and disease and a dysfunctional society? Those are just distractions on our path toward enlightenment.

Inner Journey:

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW

“There is in all visible things – a hidden wholeness.”
— Thomas Merton

“From a hologrammatic viewpoint, …you are one little physical image that reflects all of humanity when projected spiritually upon the cosmic screen.”
— Wayne Dyer

“As above, so below.”

Everything is connected. The universe is a hologram where every part contains the whole. Outside echoes the inside. The lower is a reflection of the higher. The other is a reflection of you. We are all a microcosm of each other. The big picture is within us and even our cells.

Be open to see the interconnections, influences and inter-relationships of things.

“Unity consciousness is a state of enlightenment where we pierce the mask of illusion which creates separation and fragmentation. Behind the appearance of separation is one unified field of wholeness. Here the seer and the scenery are one.”
— Deepak Chopra

“To me there is no difference between one person and another; I behold all as soul-reflections of the one God. I can’t think of anyone as a stranger, for I know that we are all part of the One Spirit.”
— Paramahansa Yogananda

Perfection

“The true perfection of man lies, not in what man has, but in what man is.”
-Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)

What man is. Not what man does, says, earns, drives, etc! Each of us, each man, woman and child, IS perfect, simply because we are. How cool is that? When we know the truth, and live it, then we know how cool it is, and how cool we are!
