Daily Good: DH Lawrence on Trees, Solitudes and What Roots Us

Now man cannot live without some vision of himself. But still less can he live with a vision that is not true to his inner experience and inner feeling.

– D.H. Lawrence –

DH Lawrence on Trees, Solitudes and What Roots Us

“A supreme challenge of human life is reconciling the longing to fulfill ourselves in union, in partnership, in love, with the urgency of fulfilling ourselves according to our own solitary and sovereign laws. Writing at the same time as Hesse, living in exile in the mountains, having barely survived an attack of the deadly Spanish Flu that claimed tens of millions of lives, the polymathic creative force D.H. Lawrence (September 11, 1885-March 2, 1930) took up the question of this divergent longing with great subtlety and splendor of insight in his autobiographically tinted novel ‘Aaron’s Rod’, rooting the plot’s climactic relationship resolution in a stunning passage about trees.”{ read more }

Elephant Journal: 5 Valuable Lessons we Learn from our Twin Flame.

There are probably about a thousand lessons I have learned with and from my twin flame.
Some I would never ever want to repeat and others I wouldn’t mind experiencing again, but I have been reflecting on my journey thus far and all of how I have grown. I thought about all of the negativity that comes up between twins as they navigate this experience, and I thought I would share some positivity on what the twin flame connection can teach us if we are willing to be students.

EarthSky News: Moon, 2 bright planets at nightfall

As darkness falls in late July/early August 2020, let the bright moon introduce you to the king planet Jupiter and the ringed planet Saturn. From around the word on July 31, look for these two worlds beneath the moon, starting at nightfall. Although the glare of the almost-full waxing gibbous moon will wash many stars from the blackboard of night, Jupiter and Saturn should be bright enough to withstand the drenching moonlight.

Patheos-Pagan: The Turning Tide

wind water fire earth
Wind, your baleful breath has stoked wildfires and razed dwellings. In times to come, waft your lovely voice over the backs of mother sea turtles. Bless the laying of their eggs. Stir sands of memory to send hatchlings scampering to the sea. Bring rain—brimming, brimming.

Inner Journey:

LIVING IN HARMONY

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

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.

“Peace is not won by those who fiercely guard their differences, but by those who with open minds and hearts seek out connections.”
— Katherine Paterson

A Note from the Universe 

It takes a really special person someone quite extraordinary, to find true happiness in the lap of luxury surrounded by wealth and abundance, friends and laughter, and choices, choices, choices.

And funnily enough, it’s usually the exact same kind of person who can be happy without all that, spending time alone, maybe with a book, or some tools, or a dog for the odd distraction.

Get my drift?

Style
“Styles, like everything else, change. Style doesn’t.”

Linda Ellerbee, 1991

 
There are so many different fashion trends and fads – they come and go as quickly as the magazines appear and disappear on the newsstands! We couldn’t possibly follow each one. And we wouldn’t want to! At a certain point in our lives, we find that all this is fun to observe, but we have to develop our own sense of style. We have to refer to ourselves to know what we like and don’t like, what works for us and what doesn’t. Being confident is always in style

-Lissa Coffey

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.
