Love Letters to the Self – by Mindy A. Early


Each January, as I ride the celebration and clarity of the New Year, I write my future self a letter. This letter isn’t focused on resolutions, or what I need to work on, or change. It’s about honoring. It’s about reminding myself that amidst the fast pace of my daily routines and the pursuit of my dreams, I need to stop to do four crucial things. If you’re like me, someone who is always seeking, always striving, you may need to write a letter to your future self, too.

Grace of a Daily Ritual – by Bob Rush


Stop for a moment and visualize a day in your life. Just pick an ordinary day. Try to see everything down to the smallest detail. For the most part, it’s pretty basic, non-descript episodes in your storybook of the day. High drama doesn’t have to be the feature attraction. And that’s the beauty and grace of an ordinary life. Sometimes the most mundane is a window to those moments of magic. There are many times during each day that I say to myself “Is this all there is?” A depressing point of view to say the least. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. It is a matter of choosing to look at the grace of daily rituals and be open to the miracles of the universe. As I write this, I’m sitting on my back deck with the sun shining and warm temperatures, watching my horses munch on hay. 36 hours ago, it was pelting rain, a bit of an ice storm and cold.

We all have rituals, whether we know it or not.

When Sorrow is Part of Your Daily Routing – by Rhea Dopmeijer


It might be the Heron standing along the waterside close by our home. Other times it comes through a song, or a word, or simply between my breath, when I inhale and consciously exhale. In the between those there his love and energy is always felt. Then there is this other part of staying behind on this plane.

Life In The Cosmic Winter – by Moon Laramie


On planet earth, nature follows a cyclical path. During spring and summer, natural forces awaken and the landscape flourishes. In autumn and winter the world falls into a period of rest. Just as nature follows the wheel of the year, so the cosmos follows a similar cycle of awakening, growth and hibernation.

See yourself daily through the other – by Andreas N. Bjørndal


One perspective on life is that there is an omnipotent and omnipresent wholeness, all-ness, oneness or God. We are all a part of this unity and every person you meet can be seen as God playing chess with himself, through you.
If you imagine this all and oneness to also be wise, loving and truthful, you can get an interesting perspective on what others represent in your daily life.
