If we aren’t granting ourselves permission to explore our true nature, then the majority of our relationships are built on false pretenses

Not every message of Spirit is in a ‘rarefied’ form. Nothing is outside of Spirit, and Spirit will bring its message to the surface in whatever place is most conducive to promote the message—sometimes in surprising forms.I encountered this song and was taken by the pop presentation of Joseph Campbell’s “Follow your Bliss.”

You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.– Winston Churchill

Alex Blackwell presents 10 Steps for Transforming Negative Thoughts into Positive Beliefs at The Bridgemaker

We can always  choose to perceive things differently. You can focus on what’s wrong in your life or you can focus on what’s right.Marianne Williamson


Joe presents What was the last thing you found?

“I would like to beg  you, dear Sir, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked  rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the  answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able    to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now.  Perhaps then, some day far in the future, you will gradually, without even    noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
-Rainer Maria Rilke’s advice to a young poet

Welcome to the Chinese New Year edition of CelebraZine

Happy Year of the Earth Ox, all!!!

A dragon dances down H Street in Chinatown during an annual Chinese New Year    celebration. (2007 Photo By Katherine Frey — The    Washington Post)

Occupying the 2nd position on the Chinese Zodiac, Oxen possess such character traits as dependability, strength and determination. Oxen are tolerant individuals who believe that the road to success involves hard work and scrupulous behavior; they don’t believe in taking shortcuts. They characterize those who don’t work hard as lazy individuals not worthy of respect.

Oxen are capable of trusting others and will listen to their opinions with an open mind. However, Oxen prefer making decisions that are based on their own research. Oxen favor strong, life-long alliances to casual acquaintances.

Barack Obama was born in the Year of the Ox (metal)

Look what the Year of the Ox has in store for you

CelebraZine

There often seems to be a playfulness to wise people,

as if either their equanimity has as its source this playfulness

or the playfulness flows from the equanimity; and they can

persuade other people who are in a state of agitation to

calm down and manage a smile.–Edward Hoagland

Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite. Or waiting around for Friday night or waiting perhaps for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil or a better break or a string of pearls or a pair of pants or a wig with curls or another chance. Everyone is just waiting.Dr. Seuss
