MNN: Even Earth’s most amazing creatures do some funny things
But when you’ve stopped giggling, consider these conservation steps you can take.

When it comes to making us laugh, animals are naturals.
Maybe that’s because they don’t try to make us laugh — but often find themselves in situations that remind us of our own foibles. The way animals respond to surprising — even hair-raising — situations can seem all-too-hilariously human.

Patheos-Pagan: Druid in the City: Seasons in the City

We’re coming out of Samhain season, and it’s a great time to think about how we celebrate our lives. I’ve talked before about how my local environment affects how I celebrate Lammas, and I thought that it might be worthwhile to present how I view the seasons as an urban druid for the whole year.



Inner Journey:


“The spiritual life is a call to action. But it is a call to … action without any selfish attachment to the results.”
— Eknath Easwaran

Many of us feel deeply that we want to make a difference — we want our lives to mean something in the bigger scheme of life. While this is a noble motive, we might want to explore what lies at its root.

Does the drive to make a difference arise from ego’s need to feel worthy? If my ego is not convinced that I matter, I may want visible proof that I do by making some kind of impact on life.

Soul doesn’t need proof that it’s worthy. Soul thrives in being awake and connected. Perhaps if we let go of the pressure we feel from our ego’s need to be recognized, we will be more open and able to simply live soulfully. And by doing that, we WILL makea difference!

“A person’s worth is contingent upon who he is, not upon what he does, or how much he has. The worth of a person, or a thing, or an idea, is in being, not in doing, not in having.”
— Alice Mary Hilton

Natural Living Ideas: 13 Uses For Tea Tree Oil That Will Change Your Life

Not to be confused with an extract of the tea plant (Camellia sinensus), tea tree oil is distilled from the leaves of the Australian tea tree (Melalenca alternifolia.) Although it is highly toxic when ingested, thanks to its antibiotic, anti-fungal, antiseptic, expectorant and antiviral properties, tea tree oil has a surprising number of topical uses which can help cure or prevent a whole host of everyday maladies, which is why it is often referred to as a “medicine cabinet in a bottle.”



Daily Tarot: The Empress

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
