Doing No Harm Imagine what the world would be like. If no one harmed anything or anyone. Wars would cease, rain forests would flourish, babies would be free of bruises and broken bones, women would not be battling the effects of inequality, criticism, and rejection. How can such a dream become a reality? Beginning with ourselves, we can courageously and consciously adopt the gentle attitude of doing no harm. Before we speak or act, we can stop and ask ourselves, " Will what I am about to say or do harm this person or thing"? We already, at some conscious or unconscious level, live out the desire to do no harm. We may gently pick up a spider and put it outdoors instead of killing it or we may thoughfully alter a statement we're about to make if we know it may be hurtful. But we need to be sure to include ourselves in this accepting attitude of treating all people and things with respect. An interesting thing happens as we begin to practice harmless living; an awareness of the sacredness of all existence, ourselves included, begins to dawn on us. We begin to sense the Goddess/God in everything. we begin to experience a reverence for life, both animate and inanimate, that, in turn, creates serenity in our hearts and minds. By expanding our desire not to harm, we create a powerful pebble-in-the-pond phenomenon. The ever-widening circles of respect and love we create touch countless people.
You are The Star
Hope, expectation, Bright promises.
The Star is one of the great cards of faith, dreams realised
The Star is a card that looks to the future. It does not predict any immediate or powerful change, but it does predict hope and healing. This card suggests clarity of vision, spiritual insight. And, most importantly, that unexpected help will be coming, with water to quench your thirst, with a guiding light to the future. They might say you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one.
Go Forward with Courage
When you are in doubt, be still, and wait; when doubt no longer exists for you, then go forward with courage. So long as mists envelop you, be still; be still until the sunlight pours through and dispels the mists--as it surely will. Then act with courage.
