Libra Horoscope for week of January 1, 2009
“God calls you to the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet,” wrote Frederick Buechner. You’re free to ignore that call, of course. You can pretend that you don’t really know what brings you deep gladness, and you can act as if the world’s deep hunger is of no concern to you. But if you hope to be proud of the life you have lived when, many years from now, you shed your mortal coil, I advise you to at least experiment with using Buechner’s formula as a working hypothesis. The coming year will be en excellent time to do just that.
pick it up turn it around
examine it weigh it feel it
take it apart and put it back
together keep it uncovered and
laying on the table like a book all
open and dog-eared and pretty soon
its so tired and so ragged so used up
that you just throw it out without even
a thought for the power that it once had
A happy life is one which is in accordance with its own nature.
-Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Living with integrity means:
Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships.
Asking for what you want and need from others.
Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension.
Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values.
Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.
-Barbara De Angelis
focus on what I have, and not what I’ve lost. what I have to offer, and not what I need. my freedom, and not my limitations…and be thankful.
presence. consciousness. constant mindfulness of my chosen path, and elimination of distractions.
