Spirit Library: A New Lightness (a message from Kate Spreckley)

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

“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.

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.
