TIPS FOR TODAY:
# 1- A short video called Cosmic Soul that helps put everything into an expanded perspective…
# 2 – Entertaining, thought-provoking excerpts from Rob Brezsny’s Beauty & Truth Lab….
DEAR BEAUTY AND TRUTH LAB: I’ve wrestled all my life with fear. But
lately it’s been even worse than usual. My personal demons seem to be
winning, or at least getting the better of the fight. I think it’s related to
the fact that when I caught wind of the idea of pronoia, I started working
hard to lose all my illusions. Now I’m thinking maybe that was a mistake.
Perhaps I needed my illusions to keep the demons at bay? – Crybaby
DEAR CRYBABY: Hang on. This is the toughest part of your struggle. It
may seem that the illusions you dissolved were the main barriers
safeguarding you from your demons. But what’s more likely is that those
illusions were food for your demons. Very soon now the demons will have
devoured the last of their fuel and will start to starve. If they don’t die
off, they will at least fly away in search of other nourishment.

DEAR BEAUTY AND TRUTH LAB: Two months ago I met the first person
with whom I am completely psychic. We fell deeply in love, of course. But
it turned out that neither of us was ready or able to fulfill the potential of
our connection because we are nowhere near as profoundly in love with
ourselves as we are with each other. The good news is that through my
love for him, I have intensified my desire to learn to love myself. The bad
news is that we can’t really be together as fate intended until we upgrade
our self-love. Can you offer any consolation? – Lucky Yet Unlucky in Love
Dear Lucky: We appreciate your sage caution, but also offer this
alternative view from actress Tallulah Bankhead: “If I had to live my life
again, I’d make the same mistakes, only sooner.”
# 3 – Wow, I hope you take the time to watch this. Heart-warming, inspiring, sad and happy…
# 4 – Two free upcoming events from The Shift Network….
In our fast-paced world it’s rare to connect deeply with spirit and sustain that connection in daily life, which is why Shift Network would like to introduce you to Joey Klein–a young and dynamic teacher who combines ancient spiritual practices with cutting-edge Western science to show us how to live a life where every expression is of spirit.
On July 30th, Joey will offer a free tele-seminar titled “Navigating Your Inner Matrix: 3 Keys to Harness Your Spiritual Power & Optimize Your Experience of Life.”
On Joey’s call you will:
- Gain an understanding of what your inner matrix is and how it defines your current experience of life.
- Learn tools to break free of limiting mental, emotional and physical patterns.
- Understand how to step into deeper connection with others.
- Begin to experience daily life as an expression of your soul’s essence.

Next, a reminder that you’re invited to “The Future of Yoga, Evolving Your Practice, Changing Our World” August 4th-6th. This event has a powerful intention to advance a new and authentically integrated approach to yoga; one that does not segment our practice into a corner of our lives, but begins to enliven all aspects of our lives with radiance.
The event features some of the wisest, most innovative, and boldest teachers of our day, including Judith Lasiter, Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Richard Miller and Deva Premal.

# 5 – Astrograph.com’s take on the current new moon phase and other cosmic happenings….
The New Moon of Saturday, July 26th, takes us on a very special ride. The Sun and Moon are conjunct positive and optimistic Jupiter, and yet also inconjunct nebulous Neptune, indicating that in spite of an unbridled sense of optimism that can move mountains, things might not be entirely what they appear. With a prominent Saturn-Uranus aspect also triggered by the event of this lunation, there is always looming as well the downside to simple goal orientation, consisting of unexpected limitations that could prevent unadulterated success. Mercury is finally past its retrograde shadow, moving through the last third of the feeling-toned sign of Cancer, with Venus nearby, provoking a thoughtful view of life and love that is emotionally depth-oriented as well as full of intellectual awareness. This is especially so because Venus is almost exactly opposite to Pluto in the timing of Saturday afternoon’s New Moon. Our ongoing transformation takes on a relationship orientation as we move through these summer months and head into further profound change in the autumn of the year…

# 6 – Hmmmm, definitely food for thought (pun intended :-))…..
Many tell us that they are so busy making their money that they do not have time to enjoy it . . . for when you rely on your action to create, often you are too tired to enjoy your creation. Once you not only understand the power of your thought, but you deliberately direct this powerful tool in the direction of things that you desire, then you will discover that the action part of your life is the way you enjoy what you have created through your thought.—Abraham
