ThoughtCo: Profile of The Greek God Poseidon

In Greek mythology and legend, Poseidon is the god of the sea. However, his domain includes some aspects of the land as well, and in fact he is known as “earth-shaker” in many stories, because of his penchant for causing earthquakes. Poseidon was responsible, according to Greek legend, for the collapse of the Minoan civilization on the island of Crete, which was all but destroyed by a giant quake and tsunami.

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.”
— James Levin

Light
“Light is the symbol of truth.”

-James Russell Lowell (1819-1891)


There are two kinds of “light” in the English language. One is the visual, the light we get from the sun or a lamp, that lets us see. This kind of light is indeed a symbol of truth, because the truth lets us see, nothing is hidden. The other kind of “light” is a measurement of weight, the opposite of “heavy.” This, too, could be called a symbol of truth. The truth makes us free, and we feel light because we don’t have to carry the heavy burden of hiding a secret.

-Lissa Coffey

Be your own best friend and give yourself credit for what you’re doing right.

Daily Good: Healing Our Relationship to Reality

“As human beings we are hardwired to search for stability, security, certainty and a sense of control in our lives. And yet, life by definition is perpetually in flux, it is famously unpredictable, riddled with uncertainty and fundamentally uncontrollable. These realities are the ground on which we practice. And practicing on this ground invites us into the heart of paradox. The paradox of finding joy in the midst of relentless change, the paradox of discovering balance in the midst of uncertainty and of finding our true agency in the midst of a surrender.” This piece explores what somatic practices like yoga can offer as we navigate the realities of existence.{ read more }

And there stood I, physically alone in my sacred grove of oaks and palms yet profoundly connected to All That Is with a vibrance I hadn’t experienced in a very long time.

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

A Note from the Universe 

A coincidence?

Do you think it’s just a coincidence that you look exactly as you do?

Do you think your height, the color of your eyes, or the sound of your voice were accidents?

Do you think your insights into life, your gifts of perception, or your sense of humor were the result of random genetics?

No. You are exactly as you now are, with every freckle, trait, and charm, because they all added up to how you could make the biggest difference with your life in time and space, while having the most fun.

In appreciation,

The Universe

Meaning
“One needs something to believe in, something which one can have whole-hearted enthusiasm. One needs to feel that one’s life has meaning, that one is needed in this world.”

-Hannah Senesh (1938)
It’s that passion, that purpose, that spurs us forward in life. We know that there is more to life than just paying the bills and hanging out. But that “more” is different for each one of us. Understanding that Life has meaning is one thing, but we must also understand that our own lives have meaning. We’re here for a reason. And it’s up to each one of us to discover just what that reason is and to embrace it whole-heartedly!

-Lissa Coffey

Be an impartial observer in your own love life today. Instead of complaining that things aren’t fair, try to be honest and loyal even if you don’t get the same in return. Serve as a peacemaker.

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.

“When the word acceptance enters a room, but is never far behind. But what about suffering and injustice? What about the pursuit of our personal goals?

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.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

“It is never about how good your voice is; it is only about feeling the urge to sing, and then having the courage to do it with the voice you are given.”
— Katie in ‘True to Form’ by Elizabeth Berg

How often have you allowed fear and your inner critic to stop you from doing something you were inspired to do?

Helen Keller said, “Life is either a grand adventure or nothing.” When we allow fear and criticism to stop us in our tracks, we give up that grand adventure. What a waste!

“Be an all-out, not a hold-out.”
— Norman Vincent Peale

Wow! What an incredible run you’ve had! Lots of “firsts,” tons of breakthroughs, countless miracles. Stones overturned, doors unlocked, and journeys just begun. It feels like I’ve waited an eternity for all that’s now happening. (Actually, I have.)

Do you have any idea how many millenniums, billenniums, trillenniums have gone by without you in the world? Thinking the kind of thoughts you now think, doing the kind of stuff you now do, and illuminating all the nooks and crannies (n-o-o-o-o, I didn’t almost say “crooks and grannies”) of the planet I couldn’t otherwise reach?

Too many.

Thanks, and have a great day!

Heart

“The heart outstrips the clumsy senses, and sees – perhaps for an instant, perhaps for long periods of bliss — an undistorted and more veritable world.”
-Evelyn Underhill, 1955

The heart has its own intelligence. Paul Pearsall wrote an amazing book called “The Heart’s Code” where he talks about all the research he has done that proves that the heart actually “thinks.” This is not just an organ in our body that serves a function for us to live. The heart is a sophisticated tool that can help us to live better, more beautifully.
