Inner Journey: DO YOU OWN YOUR LIFE?

“The meaning of life is to give life meaning.”
— Ken Hudgins

When we own our lives, we accept what we’ve inherited and the experiences we hold in our memories. We also claim our right to create new conditions if we’re not happy with what’s come before. We assume responsibility for changing what does not suit us. Weacknowledge our own special talents and skills, and truly comprehend our right to enjoy the journey. In short, we embrace the meaning and purpose, the mystery and the beauty of our lives.

Do you feel that you own your life at the moment?

“I think of life itself now as a wonderful play that I’ve written for myself… and so my purpose is to have the utmost fun playing my part.”
— Shirley MacLaine

“Life is too short to be little.”
— Benjamin Disraeli

“Every man dies, but not every man lives….”
— Garth Brooks

The time swiftly approaches when you’ll be exceedingly grateful for all that has contributed to who you’ve become, because it is exactly that person who’s now poised to live as you have always dreamed you would one day live.

Happy everything,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom

“Oh sleep! It is a gentle thing,
Beloved from pole to pole!”

-Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834)

It’s morning, but do you feel like you want to go back to bed now? When we sleep well, we feel refreshed, and we can take on the day so much more enthusiastically. We all need sleep, it is a part of being alive! And we do enjoy it – the whole routine of going to bed, getting comfortable. This is a ritual we need to acknowledge and honor. We can prepare ourselves for the night’s rest, rather than falling asleep in front of the TV. Take some time to settle in, calm down, and drift off gently and peacefully. Have you ever seen a cat sleep? Cats love their sleep – they relish it, they totally give in to it.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Chariot

If you’ve been working hard toward some goal or specific result, you could see victory today. Feel like a winner, project the confidence of a winner, and perhaps behave as though you have already won. Keep your spirits high no matter what happens and be pleased with how many people are happy for you. No matter how huge or trivial, it is still a big step forward.
