Daily Good: Before You Know Kindness: A Poem by Naomi Shihab Nye

I’ve always loved the definition for contemplation: “a long, loving look.” And when you take a long, loving look anywhere, you feel more bonded with whatever you’ve looked at.

  • Naomi Shihab Nye –

Before You Know Kindness: A Poem by Naomi Shihab Nye

“Before you know what kindness really is you must lose things, feel the future dissolve in a moment like salt in a weakened broth.” Thus begins Naomi Shihab Nye’s poem Kindness, animated poignantly by Ana Perez Lopez for the On Being Project. The poem, first published in 1980 and read softly here by the poet, contrasts strikingly with the typographical approach to the animation done during the pandemic lockdown of 2020. “Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside, you must know sorrow as the other deepest thing.” Nye’s words have relevance for us now as we not only negotiate great losses but reemerge to a new normal, with Kindness, for “only Kindness makes sense anymore”. { read more }

Inner Journey: ALL IS MIND

“I want to know the thoughts of God; the rest are details.”
— Albert Einstein

Everything — absolutely everything — that happens in our lives has a spiritual cause. Events on all other levels — mental, emotional and physical — are only effects.

When we are struggling with any challenge, whether it be ill health, a lack of money, a lost job, relationships, an accident, whatever — we need to look for the spiritual learning. We can ask ourselves, “What quality does my soul want me to live more fully?”

“If you start to think the problem is ‘out there,’ stop yourself. That thought is the problem.”
— Stephen Covey

A Note from the Universe

If you were to realize that right now, this very instant, as you read this email, you were actually dreaming…

And you realized that, as is true of all dreams, you are your dream weaver, and all that’s necessary for something to happen next in this dream is for you to DEEPLY expect it…

And you understood that nothing else you could do would bolster your expectations more than vividly imagining what you wanted, and then demonstrating, via some minor physical gesture each day, that you believed in its inevitability…

Could you pull it off? Would you believe and behave in spite of the circumstances that now surround you (the old dream still lingering before your physical senses)?

Would you at least try to redirect the ship of your life? Muster the courage, the faith, and the will to at least pretend??

You’ve been doing it your whole life. It explains your every friend, romance, and happiness; your “lucky breaks,” your connections, and the coincidences; the finds, the steals (deals!), and the clutch comebacks. There was NO mountain high enough to keep Cat Bolotin down (and back then… you didn’t even know you were dreaming!). And there NEVER will be.

Tallyho,

The Universe

Power
“The instruments of power – arms, gold, machines, magical or technical secrets – always exist independently of him who disposes of them, and can be taken up by others. Consequently all power is unstable.”

-Simone Weil (1934)


We need to remain unattached to any outside trappings of power – the job title, or money, or whatever it is that “gives” us power. Because when those things go away, as they invariably do, being transitory and unreal, then our power vanishes with them. Instead, recognize that our real power comes from within, and it can never be taken, it can never be lost.

Inner Journey: STRETCH YOURSELF

“People are defeated by easy, victorious and cheap successes more than by adversity.”

Today’s social standard is one of mediocrity. The status quo rarely challenges our individual creative power.

Create a brand new world for yourself, one that meets your deepest needs. By doing so, you will help raise the quality of consciousness of the entire world. Use your imagination! Sing your own song!

“Success means fulfilling your own dreams, singing your own song, dancing your own dance, creating from your heart and enjoying the journey, trusting that whatever happens, it will be OK. Creating your own adventure!”

“Through kindness, you can change your fate.

Daily Tarot: Justice

Take everything and everyone a little bit more seriously today, without getting grim about it. People may bring you requests or problems that they think are shaking up their world, and you should offer at least a token respect for their worries and needs. None of this puts any pressure on you, unless you get emotionally involved. Remember, you have neither the power nor responsibility to fix it all.

The moonless evenings around the spring equinox are best for viewing the zodiacal light after sunset.

You’ll want a rural location, as full darkness falls. About 80 to 120 minutes after sunset should be about right.

Inner Journey: USE YOUR BREATH TO RELAX YOUR BODY

“Breath is the link between the inner and outer worlds.”
— Alice Christensen

We live in very demanding times, and our health depends on our being able to relieve our bodies and minds from constant stress. Breathing with awareness can focus and concentrate our attention inside. This slows down our pace and eases the pressure, anxiety, anticipation and excitement that are common stress reactions.

At any time, you can consciously experience your breathing to help you concentrate your mind and relax your body. Compare how you feel after your session with how you felt before. Write about your experience in your journal.

“Controlled deep breathing helps the body to transform the air we breathe into energy. The stream of energized air produced by properly executed and controlled deep breathing produces a current of inner energy which radiates throughout the entire body and can be channeled to the body areas that need it the most, on demand.”
— Nancy Zi

Regret
“The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.”

-Christopher Crowfield, Little Foxes, 1865


Sometimes the biggest regrets are for things we didn’t do, rather than for things we did do. It’s important for us to act on our instincts, to pursue our dreams, to say what we feel the need to say. When we live life to its fullest, and not hold anything back, we give ourselves more opportunities to learn and grow

Inner Journey: THE FACE IN THE MIRROR

“Our inability to see beauty doesn’t suggest in the slightest that beauty is not there. Rather, it suggests that we are not looking carefully enough or with broad enough perspective to see the beauty.”
— Rabbi Harold Kushner

Who are you? You can gaze at your reflection in a mirror but you’re not likely to see your true likeness. You are beautiful, unique, perfect. Do you see that?

The world needs you to see how whole and complete you are — now. Can you begin to own your divinity? The world needs you to know who you really are so you can be the mirror for others.

“The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing.”
— John Muir

Trees
“She had so deep a kinship with the trees, so intuitive a sympathy with leaf and flower, that it seemed as if the blood in her veins was not slow-moving human blood, but volatile sap.”

-Mary Webb, Gone to Earth (1917)


Some people have this innate connection with the plant world. I guess those would be the same people who have “green thumbs.” There is a definite communication that goes on between plants and animals, whether we are aware of it or not. We can find peace in nature. We can find ourselves in that peace

Daily Tarot: Justice

You may be dealing with people who feel inferior or weaker than you, so take care to not run over anyone. Equally, they do not have to serve as an excuse for you to go slower or do less than you know is necessary. Be firm but not too firm, determined but not too determined. Get a lot of good work done

Inner Journey: LET GO OF THE PAST

“Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don’t think that you’ve lost time. There is no short-cutting to life. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time.”
— Asha Tyson

No regrets. As we become more aware, we begin to realize that there’s a purpose to everything that happens. This builds our trust, and supports us in being willing to be more open and daring to really experience life as it unfolds.

If we pay attention to what’s happening in each moment, we will discover that life continually brings us opportunities to heal our past wounds. When a painful memory surfaces, we can take the time to feel it fully, give compassion to ourselves and any others and allow the energy to release. As we deal with the past in this way IN THE PRESENT, we free ourselves to more fully connect with life.

“The next message you need is right where you are.”
— Ram Dass

Women and Men
“The basic discovery about any people is the discovery of the relationship between its men and women.”

-Pearl S. Buck, 1941


This whole subject has been the basis for many sociological studies. A recent reality TV show had several men live as women for a few weeks, just to see if they could do it, and who get away with it the longest. Of course, it made for many comical moments, but the deeper lesson was that at the end of the exercise these men had a newfound respect for women, particularly the women in their lives. And this is a basic truth that carries over into every area. If we want to know how someone lives, we need to walk a mile in their shoes, or in this case, their high-heels!

Inner Journey: FOCUS ON WHAT YOU WANT

“A good intention clothes itself with power.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our minds are incredibly powerful. We put that power to work for us when we consciously set an intention to be or do something. Get into the habit of consciously setting an intention for activities throughout your day.

Your intention might support efficiency – for example, to complete a job or project by a specific time. Your intention might support your personal growth, e.g., to undertake a task that scares you. Or it might support more soul connection, e.g., to be grateful for gifts we take for granted.

When we take the time to set an intention, no matter how trivial, we are consciously choosing what we want for ourselves. With consistent attention, your intentions will come to life!

“By becoming a conscious choice-maker, you begin to generate actions that are evolutionary for you.”
— Deepak Chopra

Failure
“People fail forward to success.”

-Mary Kay Ash, 1984


It’s a matter of attitude. Some baseball players say that after they strike out they feel relieved, because it just means that the odds are better for them the next time they go up to bat. The important thing is that they do get back up there and have another go at it. Failure doesn’t have to be an obstacle, it can be a stepping stone.

Inner Journey: EXPERIENCE STILLNESS

“My greatest wealth is the deep stillness in which I strive and grow and win what the world cannot take from me with fire or sword.”
— Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

If our minds are always busy, they don’t get time to do basic maintenance – to sort, tidy up and take out the trash. If we don’t periodically clear out space in our minds, there’s no room for new ideas to take root.

Where do you find stillness each day and each week? Plan for quiet time, relaxation and stillness daily, even if it’s only for 5 or 10 minutes.

“For peace of mind, we need to resign as general manager of the universe.”
— Larry Eisenberg

The Universe
“Always think of the universe as one living organism, with a single substance and a single soul.”

-Marcus Aurelius (C.E. 121-180)


The universe is not something “out there” beyond our reach. We are an essential part of the universe. It is within us, and all around us, not separate from us, but one with us. We are sustained by the universe, and each of us contributes to the wholeness, and wellness of the universe. Uni-verse: one song. We sing; we harmonize.

“Each difficult moment has the potential to open my eyes and open my heart.”
— Myla Kabat-Zinn

“Even the most daring and accomplished people have undergone tremendous difficulty. In fact, the more successful they became, the more they attributed their success to the lessons learned during their most difficult times. Adversity is our teacher. When we view adversity as a guide towards greater inner growth, we will then learn to accept the wisdom our soul came into this life to learn.”
— Barbara Rose

“No matter what difficulty you are facing, it is coming from Divine Light to bring you to a higher place within. Write down every conceivable reason that this situation can contribute towards your growth. Write down every way this experience can possibly set the stage for serving to uplift others. When you are complete, and have come to the other side of this experience, you will then know ‘why’ it happened.”

Self-Determination
“Can’t nothin’ make your life work if you ain’t the architect.”

-Terry McMillan, 1989


The architect’s job is to come up with the plan, to lay out the blue prints. There are all these decisions to made, and you have to start somewhere. Once you’ve got a plan, then you can lay the foundation, the framework, the whole building can come together. With life, we’ve got to be the architect. We have to make the decisions that are going to make our life work the way we want it to. When we have self-determination the sky’s the limit!

Daily Tarot: The Tower

People may be expecting or needing you to be laid-back and easy to deal with but your own inclinations may make you seem more difficult and demanding. You may see yourself as just being direct while others consider you as being tactless. Save yourself a lot of grief and use extra care with your words and actions. If someone gets bent out of shape, try to catch it instantly and stop it as soon as you can.

Inner Journey: ALL IS MIND

“I want to know the thoughts of God; the rest are details.”
— Albert Einstein

Everything — absolutely everything — that happens in our lives has a spiritual cause. Mental, emotional and physical events are only effects.

When we are struggling with any challenge, whether it be ill health, a lack of money, a lost job, relationships, an accident, whatever — we need to look for the spiritual learning. We can ask ourselves, “What quality does my soul want me to live more fully?”

“I went to the root of things, and found nothing but Him alone.”
— Mira Bai

Daily Wisdom

Challenge
“Providence has hidden a charm in difficult undertakings, which is appreciated only by those who dare to grapple with them.”

-Anne-Sophie Swetchine, 1869


Ah! Doesn’t this explain it! When we accept a challenge, work through it to the other side, then we understand and appreciate the growth that comes as our reward. It’s easy to shrug off a challenge, to think that it’s too big of a risk, that it could be a waste of our time. But to tackle a challenge, to grapple with it, leads us to a place where we discover just what we are capable of, and that is beautiful.

Daily Tarot: The Fool

The day may be full of confusion but you don’t have to go through it naively and unaware of what’s happening around you. It’s not a good day to flirt with taking silly risks, some of which might turn out to be semi-dangerous or costly. You may be too hyper to want to play it safe, but at least make an effort to not be naïve or irresponsible.

Daily Good: Creativity & COVID-19

Our genius is to understand and stand beneath the set of stars present at our birth, and from that place, to seek the hidden single star, over the night horizon, we did not know we were following.

  • David Whyte –

Creativity & COVID-19

“In some recent discussions with friends who are also creatives, I have heard a variety of responses to the question, ‘How has Covid-19 affected your creativity?’Some have been inspired to create new work. Others have spoken about a year of fallowness. It’s a term we rarely if ever hear in a culture devoted to–or better put, obsessed with–constant productivity. Take agribusiness: every acre and every creature must give maximum yield all the time, even though that is un-natural. Nature functions in cycles, and one part of that is rest, which leads to renewal. Traditionally, that was the way people understood cultivation: “And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and gather in the increase thereof; but the seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie fallow…” Mirka Knaster shares more in this thoughtful essay. { read more }

Be The Change

Reflect on the question for yourself: How has the pandemic affected your creativity?

Inner Journey: REVIEW YOUR LIFE

“Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.”
— James Levin

Take a few minutes today to reflect on what has happened recently and to put the last week in perspective. What made an impact on you this last week? What do you want to set as a goal for next week?

Reflection helps us step back from the details of our lives and see the bigger picture with fresh eyes. It’s worth a few moments of your time. Review your week and come up with at least one conclusion, insight or learning and write it in your journal.

“Just because we increase the speed of information doesn’t mean we can increase the speed of decisions. Pondering, reflecting and ruminating are undervalued skills in our culture.”
— Dale Dauten

Sleep
“Sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.”

-Thomas Dekker


Any doctor will tell you that sleep is an important aspect of our overall health. This is the time when we can really rest and heal. We go, go, go all day long – we put so much stress on our minds and bodies working all the time, and running around everywhere. When we sleep this is the only time we really don’t expect ourselves to do anything! And this is the time that our bodies can do the work that it needs to do to keep us in top form.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: The Pope

Today can be easy if you don’t try to swim upstream. Do what’s expected of you (and what you need to do, anyway) and don’t rebel, at least not outwardly. You’re given plenty of authority to convince people to help you if necessary, and there should be few if any arguments. Be calm, respect authority, and you’ll automatically be given the respect you deserve, plus more. Get a lot done!
