Inner Journey: VALUE THE PROCESS

“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear … as it is, infinite.”
— William Blake

When we stop and pay attention to ourselves, we begin to see clearly the habits and patterns that have kept us asleep and confused and misled for so long. With awareness, we can choose to shift from the selfish and narrow outlook of our personality to the all-embracing generosity of our soul, simply by changing our perspective.

Change your mind and you’ll change your world.

“You watch your mind to see who you are not. I watch my mind to gain a sense of its content, which has always been my pain. As I watch it, I get a sense of its impermanence. Thoughts come and go as part of a process. I see how content dissolves into process and begin to see the patterns in the process. Realizing it isn’t MY suffering, MY pain, it becomes THE pain. I’ve gone from the tiny, the small, and the individual to the universal. I feel OUR pain. When we do, we go from fear to compassion. Fear is MY pain, compassion is THE pain.”
— Stephen Levine

Science
“When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That’s relativity.”

-Albert Einstein (1879-1955)


What is time anyway but some man-made measurement? In Spirit there is no time, that’s why time can stand still, or can fly by. Our perception of time is what affects us more than time itself. Look at how some people just don’t seem to age. When we feel young, we live young, and look young!

For Small Creatures Such as We

In “For Small Creatures Such as We” Sasha Sagan, daughter of astronomer Carl Sagan, “explores the worlds of ritual and tradition from a scientific viewpoint. Sagan is non-religious, much like her science-minded parents. When she became a mother, she wanted to find a way to incorporate ritual and tradition into her family in a way that, instead of religion, reflected her passion for space, science and nature. In this book, she explores ways that families might do that and how we can remind ourselves to be in awe of the world and universe around us.” { read more }

Inner Journey: HOW DO YOU PLAY YOUR ROLES?

“What concerns me is not the way things are, but rather the way people think things are.”
— Epicetus

When we are basically unconscious, we live according to social roles. We perform as sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, husbands and wives, employers and employees, as society expects us to.

As we grow in awareness, we gain the freedom to bring our own unique perspectives to these roles. We can express ourselves authentically and creatively, without letting our roles dictate how we should behave.

“Risk! Risk anything! Care no more for the opinion of others, for those voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.”
— Katherine Mansfield

When he told me, he had run all the way back to our house through the woods and up our steep bank. His eyes were shining and he was breathless from exertion and excitement. His words tumbled one over the other, and his hands played out the drama of what he had found. What started then as a thrilling curiosity became, soon, a passion for our whole family.” { read more }

Inner Journey: BRING SOUL INTO THE WORLD

“We live in a culture that is greatly biased against the imagination, because our culture is very materialistic, objective and literal. Our culture lacks soul, and doesn’t know it, although it experiences the consequences. When you don’t know what’s missing, then of course you don’t know what to bring in, even though you feel something is missing.

“We live in a world that needs more soul, more meaning. We, as conscious beings, have, as our primary responsibility, at this time in human history, the task of bringing soul into the world, or releasing soul into the world. We do this, first of all, in ourselves and in our own personal world; then we do it in our groups – including family; then we do it in our society through our work, relationships and presence there.”

Philosophy
“Philosophy is the product of wonder.”

-A.N. Whitehead (1861-1947)


It’s those big “what ifs” in the world that lead us to great discovery, to great insight. When we let loose our imaginations, when we let our minds wander, and wonder, we can come up with all kinds of amazing theories and philosophies. And yet, how often do we allow ourselves this luxury? Sit in silence and see what happens, see where your mind takes you.

Inner Journey: THE POWER OF ACCEPTANCE

“It is permissible to take life’s blessings with both hands provided thou dost know thyself prepared in the opposite event to take them just as gladly. This applies to food and friends and kindred, to anything God givesand takes away… As long as God is satisfied do thou rest content. If he is pleased to want something else of thee, still rest content.”
— Meister Eckhart

Our life begins to change in magical ways when we open to the experience of life AS IT IS. With acceptance, we stop fighting what is happening. And this creates space, an opening for new relationships to unfold.

Explore unconditionally saying yes to the facts of life. Accept your past and where you are now. Unconditional acceptance is unconditional love and this is healing.

“Sometimes what seems like surrender isn’t surrender at all. It’s about what’s going on in our hearts. About seeing clearly the way life is and accepting it and being true to it, whatever the pain, because the pain ofnot being true to it is far, far greater.”
— Nicholas Evans

Films
“In my films I always wanted to make people see deeply. I don’t want to show things, but to give people the desire to see.”

-Agnes Varda, in John Robert Columbo, “Popcorn in Paradise” 1979


I quote Gandhi quite a bit in WisdomNews. We can learn a lot from what this very wise man had to say. And we can also learn from how he lived his life. Fortunately, there is a beautiful movie, called “Gandhi,” which gives us some insight into his character. It’s amazing that in basically 3 hours we can see the kinds of things that Gandhi experienced. It gives us insight into our own nature, and our own potential for growth.

A change has been in the air for some time and today the actual transformation could happen. There’s nothing to be afraid of, or to dread, or to fear losing. Room is being made and energy is being set aside for something new and better for you. It could be something small or something large, but whatever it is will be meaningful and affect your daily life.

Inner Journey: PURPOSE BRINGS JOY

“Our purpose is hidden in our joy, our inspiration, our excitement. As we act on what shows up in our life our purpose shows up.”
— James King

For many of us, our joy is truly activated when we get a bigger picture of who we are and why we are here.

Most of us need to enlarge our self-concept. We may see ourselves as a bag of bones but, in truth, we are eternal, multi-faceted and multi-dimensional spiritual beings having a human experience. It’s time to think of ourselves as much larger and grander than just a physical and emotional being confined in a body.

“There is no more important step you can take than to define your life’s purpose. It develops your sense of belonging to our universe.”
— Arnold Patent

“Other than life experience, nothing left a deeper imprint on my formative self than the movies.”

-Letty Cottin Pogrebin, 1991


Some movies just stick with us. There are certain phrases, certain scenes, we always remember. And we can learn from the effect that the movies have on us. Remember how Dorothy, in “The Wizard of Oz,” just wanted to go home? And she was really there all the time. What a powerful message. And the Tin-Man wanted a heart so badly, and yet, it was there all along, he just didn’t recognize it. We can relate to these characters on their journey as we follow our own yellow-brick road.

Daily Good: Trail of Light

This beautifully moving film features Aralyn Doiron, a delightful woman who has trained to be a Death Walker, someone who values a relationship with death and someone who values life. She suggests that it is only when we acknowledge that we are going to die one day, that we can truly start to live. The fact that many of us are separated from death is a disconnect from our humanity. She encourages having normal conversations about death, something we don’t usually talk about, bringing death more into our lives in an enlivening way. Death teaches us about impermanence and about valuing what we have in the moment. { read more }

Inner Journey: STEP INTO SELF-AWARENESS

“Getting in touch with your true self must be your first priority.”
— Tom Hopkins

Here are some different aspects of self-awareness:
•Know yourself – Explore who you are: your defences, your blocks, your talents, your aspirations, etc.
•Accept yourself – We are at war with ourselves when we resist or deny certain aspects of who we are. Acknowledge the truth of who you are right now – the positives and the negatives. Only when we own our present reality can we change.
•Control yourself – Set clear, conscious intentions and discipline yourself to meet them.
•Express yourself – Go to your heart to identify what has meaning and purpose for you. Live your truth. Identify ways you can give back to life and be in service.

We work on each of these aspects all the time. But as our lives go through cycles, we predominantly work on one of them more than the others. Which aspect are you more conscious of lately?

“Our lives improve only when we take chances … and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.”
— Walter Anderson

“Adventure can be an end in itself. Self-discovery is the secret ingredient that fuels daring.”
— Grace Lichtenstein

Do you know what’s already happened this month? A million Beethovens were born. A million Oprahs. A million Einsteins. A million Florence Nightingales. A million Martin Luther Kings. And a million Madame Curies, to name just a few. Each as capable of moving mountains, touching lives, and leaving the world far better than they found it.

And so you can just imagine how all of us “here” watch in anticipation to see which ones will have the courage to do whatever little they can each day, with what little they’ve got, from where they are, before their baby steps turn into giant leaps for the legions who will follow them.

It’s so in you,

Poetry
“Poetry is that art which selects and arranges the symbols of thought in such a manner as to excite the imagination the most powerfully and delightfully.”

-William Cullen Bryant (1794-1878)


Poetry seems to be a lost art sometimes, I don’t think we appreciate it enough. I like that with just a few words a poem can illustrate a concept that seems too difficult to explain. It’s because we feel the poetry in our heart first, and then think about its meaning and how it applies to our own lives. I like to read a poem out loud every night before I go to sleep. It puts me into that state where I am ready to dream.

Inner Journey: MAKING A DIFFERENCE

“The spiritual life is a call to action. But it is a call to … action without any selfish attachment to the results.”
— Eknath Easwaran

Many of us feel deeply that we want to make a difference — we want our lives to mean something in the bigger scheme of life. While this is a noble motive, we might want to explore what lies at its root.

Does the drive to make a difference arise from ego’s need to feel worthy? If my ego is not convinced that I matter, I may want visible proof that I do by making some kind of impact on life.

Soul doesn’t need proof that it’s worthy. Soul thrives in being awake and connected. Perhaps if we let go of the pressure we feel from our ego’s need to be recognized, we will be more open and able to simply live soulfully. And by doing that, we WILL make a difference!

“A person’s worth is contingent upon who he is, not upon what he does, or how much he has. The worth of a person, or a thing, or an idea, is in being, not in doing, not in having.”
— Alice Mary Hilton

“When you affirm your own rightness in the universe, then you cooperate with others easily and automatically as part of your own nature. You, being yourself, help others be themselves.”

We are all connected. We are all living examples for each other. When we are being ourselves, feeling natural and at ease, people can’t help but respond in kind. It’s beautiful to have this open, honest communication. Being self-aware helps us to relax and be ourselves. We know that when we do that we are happiest, and that we also get the best response from others.

Daily Dream Meaning: Egyptian

1. Dreaming of living in ancient Egypt might actually be a past-life memory. Be sure to write the dream down immediately upon awakening, as an issue from that past life could be coming to the surface of your unconscious mind. Something in the dream probably relates to a concern in the present, and the dream may be giving you important insights.
2. Egypt is a land of mystery, and therefore if you dream of Egypt or things Egyptian there is probably some mystery in your life that you’d like to have resolved. Look to other symbols in the dream to discern what it is and what you should do about it.
3. Egypt is a land where a lot of secrets are being dug out of the ground. What secrets are you hiding? Or are others around you keeping things from you that you really need to know? If the other symbols in the dream support this idea, honest communication with those involved is definitely called for.

Elephant Journal: The Shadow in Me Honors the Shadow in You

The only person I’m hanging out with these days seems to be my shadow side.
From the moment I wake up, there is a wave of grief and mourning for the world I used to know. There is jealousy and spite that arises when I see people on social media “doing more than me,” and there is unmistakable rage whenever I stumble into a news portal.

MNN: Fisherman visits dolphin every day to make up for the missing tourists

Fungie is no stranger to solitude.

Since the bottlen-nosed dolphin was first spotted in Irish waters back in 1983, he’s almost never seen with even a single friend. Fungie is so famed for his solo act, even Guinness World Records has taken notice, naming him the world’s longest-lived solitary dolphin.

Inner Journey:

GIVING CHOICE

“Freedom of choice is more to be treasured than any possession earth can give.”
— David O. McKay

I want to choose the details of my life. Fortunately, I’ve come to appreciate how important it is to give others the freedom to choose their own paths.

None of us wants our choice robbed from us. I can’t know what’s best for anyone but me. So why give unsolicited advice to others and expect them to follow it?

“The truest characters of ignorance are vanity, and pride and arrogance.”
— Samuel Butler

“What man wants is simply independent choice, whatever that may cost and wherever it may lead.”
— Fyodor Dostoyevsky

A Note from the Universe
You’re dreaming-g-g-g.

Dreaming of lavender fields, turquoise seas, and emerald isles. Mountains that rise and fall, oceans that heave and sigh, and jungles that give and take.

You’ve dreamed up heaven and earth. All of the people and all of the places. What’s “good” and what’s not. What you like and what you don’t.

You’ve dreamed of me, and of yourself, and of things you no longer remember, yet they, too, carry on.

Yet as meticulous as you’ve been, there are some things, I dare say, that are too often forgotten, that you’re dreaming, that you’re free, and that the dreamer is always greater than their dream.

Z-z-z-z-z-z-z,

Consistency
“True consistency, that of the prudent and the wise, is to act in conformity with circumstances.”

-John C. Calhoun (1782-1850)

 

This is interesting to think about – so many times we look at consistency as a virtue. And it is in some situations. But when we look at the “big picture” we see how things change, and so why wouldn’t our minds change with the times? For example, we might start out with an allegiance to a particular political party, only to change our minds and vote another way come election time. Is that being inconsistent? I don’t think so. The consistency comes with being true to ourselves.

1. Something in the dreamer’s life is difficult to face, and the dreamer would rather run away from it than face it.

Inner Journey:

Open to the new

“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”
— Alvin Toffler

How willing are you to learn something new? How open are you to new perspectives?

When we are open, we are willing to move to places we’ve never been before. We are willing to continually review our belief systems so we can test out new ideas.

Be open to seeing things:
– from another’s point of view,
– from a higher and more inclusive perspective
– with a beginner’s attitude of wonder.
“I am always in quest of being open to what the universe will bring me.”
— Jill Bolte Taylor

A Note from the Universe

When it comes to “having it all,”  many fine, young souls take issue with the word “have.” They’re concerned about the concept of ownership. Their soul is taunted with guilt for the pleasure it derives from material things. And they quiver at the thought of others having less than they have.

Of course, such righteous and selfless thoughts are a significant contributor to the creation of lack in a world of endless abundance, but they’ll learn.

MBG: A Sign-By-Sign Guide To Breezing Through This Mercury Retrograde

It’s Mercury retrograde time again—for the first time in 2019. Three or four times a year, Mercury passes the earth in its orbit. As it rounds the bend, Mercury slows down and appears to stop (station) and spin backward (retrograde). Of course, it really ISN’T moving backward, but much like two trains or cars passing each other, this creates the optical illusion that one (Mercury, in this case) is going backward.

Inner Journey:

LIVE YOUR OWN LIFE

“We don’t always know what makes us happy. We know, instead, what we think SHOULD. We are baffled and confused when our attempts at happiness fail…We are mute when it comes to naming accurately our own preferences, delights, gifts, talents. The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed, even strangled, by the voices of other people’s expectations. The tongue of the original self is the language of the heart.”
— Julia Cameron

We are each unique beings with a unique path in life. If we wish to be fulfilled, we need to go to our own hearts for direction. We might regularly ask ourselves:
• “What do I really want to do?”
• “What brings me greatest happiness?”
• “How can I bring more of these into my life?”

Life wants us to go for what brings us most joy and meaning.

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. …I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.”
— Oriah Mountain Dreamer

“Let me listen to me and not to them.”
— Gertrude Stein

“What you must dare is to be yourself.”
— Dag Hammarskjold

“Life engenders life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.

-Sarah Bernhardt (1966)

Energy is one of those things that seems to be contagious! Have you ever noticed how a low-energy meeting gets revved up when someone comes up with a great idea? We feed off each others’ energy all the time! How great is it to be the one who can light up a room?! Let’s do what we can to lift the energy around us every day – it could be as simple as sharing a smile.

Tetraktys: Witchcraft Troubleshooting: 5 Reasons Why Your Spell Failed

If, like me, you work according to the moon phases, you will easily know if a spell failed. If you set your intentions at the New Moon and release your expectations at the Full Moon, all your spellwork should run smoothly. However, if, when you reach the next New Moon, things have not improved, then something must have gone wrong. You will probably ask yourself “Why did it fail?” The truth is, even if you perform a spell perfectly, sometimes, the results won’t come. In this post, you will learn the 5 most common reasons of spell failures. I will also show you how to make sure that it doesn’t happen again.
