Inner Journey: THE GIFT OF JOY

“Joy is prayer – Joy is strength – Joy is love – Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. She gives most who gives with Joy.”
— Mother Teresa

Some people unconsciously believe it’s not okay to feel more joyful than the people around them. Out of a mistaken sense of caring, they squelch their joy and tune in to the sadness of the one they are with.

In truth, joy is one of the greatest gifts we can give to people around us. Those who are unhappy need our joy, not our sadness.

“Never miss a joy in this world of trouble … that’s my theory! … Happiness, like mercy, is twice blest: it blesses those most intimately associated with it and it blesses all those who see it, hear it, touch it or breathe the same atmosphere.”
— Kate Douglas Wiggin

Self
“We never remark any passion or principle in others, of which, in some degree or other, we may not find a parallel in ourselves.”

-David Hume (1711-1776)


The more we get to know our self, the more we understand that we are so much the same as everyone else. Sometimes it’s like we’re all living the same life. We have so much in common. There are times when we recognize each other as brothers and sisters, and there are other times when we just say: “That’s me!” And that’s the truth. We’re all connected.

Daily Dream Meaning: Foreign Country

1. If the foreign country was one that you have either been to and loved, or always wanted to visit, this is a sign that the attainment of your heart’s desire is closer than you think. It also means that you should keep working on it and not be discouraged in spite of any setbacks.
2. If the foreign country is strange, or the people unfriendly, or if it’s a country where violence, war, and other unfavorable situations are occurring, then something or someone in your life is leading you into strange and unfamiliar territory which could at the very least make you uncomfortable. Think twice before allowing yourself to be tempted into circumstances that you know nothing about.

“This is June, the month of grass and leaves . . . already the aspens are trembling again, and a new summer is offered me. I feel a little fluttered in my thoughts, as if I might be too late. Each season is but an infinitesimal point. It no sooner comes than it is gone. It has no duration. It simply gives a tone and hue to my thought. Each annual phenomena is reminiscence and prompting. Our thoughts and sentiments answer to the revolution of the seasons, as two cog-wheels fit into each other. We are conversant with only one point of contact at a time, from which we receive a prompting and impulse and instantly pass to a new season or point of contact. A year is made up of a certain series and number of sensations and thoughts which have their language in nature. Now I am ice, now I am sorrel. Each experience reduces itself to a mood of the mind.”
– Henry David Thoreau, Journal, June 6, 1857

MNN: Dirt from this old Irish church really does have healing properties

When residents of Northern Ireland’s County Fermanagh have a health issue, particularly an infection, they turn to the church.

And the church gives them dirt. But the Sacred Heart Church in the town of Boho doesn’t dole out just any dirt. The soil taken from its churchyard has long been known for its restorative properties — an uncanny ability to fight infection

EarthSky News: Moon and Spica on June 1 and 2

On June 1 and 2, 2020, use the waxing gibbous moon to find Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo the Maiden. In fact, Spica is Virgo’s one and only 1st-magnitude star. Although the bright moon will wipe out a number of fainter stars from the canopy of night tonight, bright Spica should withstand the moonlit glare. If you have trouble seeing Spica, place your finger over the moon and look for a bright star nearby.

Many moons ago, through a strange twist of fate, Phyllis Curott’s Witch Crafting landed on my door mat.

Inner Journey: 

KNOW YOURSELF

“What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.”
— Abraham H. Maslow

STOP AND PAY ATTENTION! Set an intention to be more aware. Become a watcher, of yourself and what’s around you. Develop the witness, the part of you that can step back from life and impartially observe how you react and think and feel. We learn so much about who we are!

“Knowing others is wisdom; knowing the self is enlightenment.”
— Tao Te Ching

“The true profession of man is to find his way to himself.”
— Hermann Hesse

A Note from the Universe

You know that feeling?

That sense of eagerness for the moment. Optimism for the future. And confidence that you’re exactly “when” and where you should be. That feeling that makes dark days lighter and light days brighter. That precedes breakthroughs, conquests, and euphoria.

Yes, that feeling!

Well, it doesn’t just come.

You have to give it to yourself.

Go on,

The Universe

Value
“To gain that which is worth having, it may be necessary to lose everything else.”

-Bernadette Devlin

 
To gain peace of mind, it is necessary for us to step away from fear, doubt, and anxiety. To gain love, we must give up grudges, and resentments. Let’s look at what is worth having, and what we are willing to give up to get it

Daily Tarot: The Moon

It’s possible that you’re putting yourself under more stress and pressure than anyone or anything else going on around you. It’s not necessary to beat yourself up emotionally like this. Things are fine and you can make things even better if you curtail the urge to obsessively dwell on only what and who is letting you down. Be your own best friend and give yourself credit for what you’re doing right.
