Elephant Journal: Why we should Stand Closer to People who Don’t Feel like Sunshine.

It’s easy to tell someone we’ll stand by their side no matter what.

But when “no matter what” comes knocking, more often than not it knocks right up against our own fears and wounds.

When this happens, the last thing we want to do is stand next to that person.

But, here’s the thing: I think we should.

MNN: How to find the perfect peach

How do you know if a peach is perfect? It’s not too difficult to determine if you use your senses. There are three things to notice when looking for a peach that’s as ripe as you want it to be: color, texture and smell. Checking to see if a peach is perfect should take only 5 seconds, a scant few moments that will be worth it when you bite into a delicious, ripe, juicy peach.

EarthSky News: Find the Crow, Cup and Water Snake

Tonight, or any June evening, look south and west (below and to the right) of the star Spica for the constellations of Corvus the Crow, Crater the Cup, and Hydra the Water Snake.

You’ll be looking in the south to southwest sky around nightfall. In 2018, the brilliant “star” to the east (left) of the star Spica is really the planet Jupiter,

Inner Journey:

FOLLOW THROUGH ON YOUR COMMITMENTS

“Our high resolves look down on our slumbering acts.”
— L.E. Landon

How do you put things off, make excuses, or let anyone or anything get in the way of your commitments?

What are you saying to yourself and your subconscious mind (which records all of your patterns) when you do not complete what is important to you?

Pick a task or new habit to which you will re-commit. Show yourself and your inner programming that you CAN complete and that you are serious about what you say.

“Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.”
— William James

“Procrastination is the thief of time.”
— Edward Young

A Note from the Universe

Talk about magical rendezvous…

Right this very moment, on a distant farm, there basks a fig, a nut, or a berry, whose very life force will soon be your own. But that’s not all…

Right this very moment, there’s a gorgeous home on a splendid property with a spectacular view, whose roof will someday give you shelter. But that’s not all…

Right this very moment, there are beautiful souls on your beautiful planet, whom you do not even know, yet through your meanderings and theirs, paths will cross, love will be shared, and eternal friendships will be created. I’m still not done…

And nothing you do, or don’t do, can prevent these serendipities I’ve just shared and so, so many more.

Amen, hallelujah, rock me Amadeus –

The Universe

Faith

“Any anxious thought as to the means to be employed in the accomplishment of our purposes is quite unnecessary. If the end is already secured, then if follows that all the steps leading to it are secured also.” -Thomas Troward

Faith is knowing. It’s not believing or guessing or hoping, it is KNOWING. It is complete trust in the Divine. There is an organizing power in the Universe. That power is also within each one of us! When we set our goals, the Universe – through us – orchestrates the avenues by which we reach those goals. We don’t need to question, or fret, we just need to have faith and know that it is already done.

Elephant Journal: May 15th: Intense Make or Break Time with the Taurus New Moon

The moon is exalted when in Taurus, meaning the moon and Taurus adore one another, and the sensual affinity they share means they resonate with each other deeply and harmoniously. This causes lunar energy to feel intense during this period, making us feel highly intuitive and ultra sensitive.

MNN: 12 out-of-this-world observatories

There’s nothing like sprawling out on a blanket on a darkened field, somewhere far from the city, to view a celestial light show. Staring off into a star-filled sky is one of life’s simplest yet most profound pleasures, a humbling experience that reminds us of the staggering immensity of the universe we call home.

Sometimes, however, serious stargazers need to seek out the big guns. And for that, there are observatories, telescope-housing institutions dedicated to the exploration of celestial objects: the moon, the sun, the stars and planets far away

Patheos-Pagan: Review: Italian Folk Magic

Italian Folk Magic: Rue’s Kitchen Witchery is a fantastic book and one I’ve really been wanting someone to write. Mary-Grace Fahrun provides a fantastic look into one of the most practical folk magic traditions I have ever seen. All the practices provided are so simple and just seem like mindful practices and prayers incorporated into everyday life to enchant it.

Inner Journey: 

PERSONAL POWER

“The deep root of failure in our lives is to think, ‘Oh how useless and powerless I am.’ It is essential to think strongly and forcefully, ‘I can do it,’ without boasting or fretting.”
— Dalai Lama

Angeles Arrien says that whether we are male or female, we need to develop three kinds of power. People who hold these three powers cannot be ignored.
1.Power of presence – Being really present in each moment
2.Power of communication – Speaking my truth
3.Power of position – Being willing to take a stand

“A man’s true state of power and riches is to be in himself.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

“We are no longer puppets being manipulated by outside powerful forces; we become the powerful force ourselves.”
— Leo Buscaglia

Today’s Recipe: Vegan Almond Spread

This is a creamy and delicious substitute for cheese spread, made of almonds that have been soaked for 24 hours. This spread really boosts flavours in sandwiches where mayonnaise and cheese would typically be used, and is also a great topping for crackers, and a dip for veggies. Add any type of chopped herbs, if you desire.

Dreams

“Within each one of us there is another whom we do not know. He speaks to us in dreams and tells us how differently he sees us from how we see ourselves. When, therefore, we find ourselves in a difficult situation, to which there is no solution, he can sometimes kindle a light that radically alters our attitude, the very attitude that led us into the difficult situation.” -Carl G. Jung (1875-1961)

This “another whom we do not know” is indeed our Higher Self, or God, or Spirit, or whatever we each may want to call that Divine energy within. Yet as we work on our spiritual growth, the point is to get to know this “another” and by doing so to understand that there really is no separation between us! We come to realize who we really are.

-Lissa Coffey

Beliefnet: 7 Things That Happen When You Take Responsibility For Your Life

Too many of us simply drift through our lives, allowing fate to take us where it may. But a life without commitment is a life wasted, and so it’s important to live on purpose, and to make intentional choices every single day.

This is how you build a life that is truly yours—you put it together, choice by choice.
