I awake to the sound of the wind stirring the chimes outside my window.

Upon asking for happiness and a beautiful life, ask not just for you, but for everyone.
Upon asking for something bigger and more brilliant, ask not just for you, but for everyone.
Upon asking for health and abundance for yourself, ask for it to be blessed unto everyone.
Can you imagine what would happen if the entirety of the universe wished these things for you?

'Shall we pitch ourselves into the ocean, shall we hurl ourselves into the rampart? Shall we sink our teeth into the rocks, the waves, the shadow, the rose? Shall we costume ourselves in ruins and wrap this lump of sand in our gala frocks? Will you slip your satin slipper over the sand's foot? Do you think the phantoms taking up residence behind this rampart, the phantoms we await, will attend? Are we phantom enough?'
-- "Surrealist Phantoms"

Please remember that although you have nothing but gratitude in your heart,
you are not obligated to smile or feel any such way because of it.

Love the moon not only when it is full and bright,
and do the same for the ones you love.

The Dark Moon in Taurus on May 17-18 brings special awareness to your physical self. Attune your energies to that of your body and the earth. Take time during this dark moon phase to connect with your earthly senses (sound, taste, scent, sight, and touch). Turn off the outside world if need be while you focus in to your own personal needs and desires. Seclusion is key. If you are feeling ungrounded, you may be spending too much time in the past and or future. It is very easy to become distracted with thoughts not immediate to now and forget about the needs of your physical body and soul. Focus on staying within the present moment: 'love with the patience of mountains; I deserve happiness.' A beneficial way to combat obsessive thinking is to compose a list of your new moon dreams and aspirations... Reaffirm your goals in love, home, and prosperity. This is a wonderful moon for abundance and creativity. Exercise your natural gifts and talents to nourish the world within yourself as you manifest the universe without.

' I am the poet of the body,
and I am the poet of the soul.
The pleasures of heaven are with me,
and the pains of
hell are with me,
the first I graft and increase upon
myself-- the latter I
translate into a new tongue. '
-- Walt Whitman, Song of Myself, from Leaves of Grass
