From Doreen Virtue's Angel Tarot Deck "Brother [and sister], take not one step in the descent to hell. For having taken one, you will not recognize the rest for what they are. And they will follow. Attack in any form has placed your foot upon the twisted stairway that leads from Heaven. Yet any instant it is possible to have all this undone. How can you know whether you chose the stairs to Heaven or the way to hell? Quite easily. How do you feel? Is peace in your awar
From Doreen Virtue's Angel Tarot Deck "There is another vision and another Voice in which your freedom lies, awaiting but your choice. And if you place your faith in Them, you will perceive another self in you. This other self sees miracles as natural. They are as simple and as natural to it as breathing is to the body. They are the obvious response to calls for help, the only one it makes. Miracles seem unnatural to the ego because it does not understand how separate min
From Doreen Virtue's Angel Tarot Deck "Those who don't feel this Love
pulling them like a river,
those who don't drink dawn
like a cup of spring water
or take in sunset like supper,
those who don't want to change,
let them sleep.
This Love is beyond the study of theology,
that old trickery and hypocrisy.
If you want to improve your mind that way,
I've given up on my brain.
I've torn the cloth to shreds
and thrown it away.
If you're not comple
From Doreen Virtue's Angel Tarot Deck "Forgiveness brings no little miracles to lay before the gate of Heaven. Here the Son of God himself comes to receive each gift that brings him nearer to his home. Not one is lost, and none is cherished more than any other. Each reminds him of his Father's Love as surely as the rest. And each one teaches him that what he feared he loves the most. What but a miracle could change his mind, so that he understands that love cannot be fea
From Doreen Virtue's Angel Tarot Deck "Yes," said Erksine, "This was Cyril Graham's theory, evolved as you see purely from the Sonnets themselves, and depending for its acceptance not so much on demonstrable proof or formal evidence, but on a kind of spiritual and artistic sense, by which alone he claimed could the true meaning of the poems be discerned. I remember his reading to me that fine sonnet-- How can my Muse want subject to invent, While thou dost breathe, that pour
From Doreen Virtue's Angel Tarot Deck "There he begins by citing from a British schoolbook the declaration that when a person calls a waterfall sublime he is making a remark not about the waterfall at all but only about his own feelings. What the authors of this schoolbook are doing, says Lewis, is implanting in the minds of children the idea that all value judgements are subjective and dependent on the accidental factors such as mood or occasion and that there is no more ac
From Doreen Virtue's Angel Tarot Deck "My classroom was a vegetable garden. I'd like to say that I was smart enough at the time to deliberately choose this classroom, but I didn't have a clue about what I was doing. I only knew I was to do it. I had been gardening for three years prior to entering the classroom. In those three years, I had shifted my approach from traditional gardening complete with chemical pesticides to organic gardening methods. It was my frustration
From Doreen Virtue's Angel Tarot Deck "Those who know, not only that the Everlasting lives in them but that what they, and all things, really are is the Everlasting, dwell in the groves of the wish-fulfilling trees, drink the brew of immortality, and listen everywhere to the unheard music of eternal concord. These are the immortals. The Taois landscape paintings of China and Japan depict supremely the heavenliness of this terrestrial state. The four benevolent animals, the
From Doreen Virtue's Angel Tarot Deck "While Eckhart was ostracized from the Church for his mystical sermons, Saint Teresa was instructed by her superiors to write a book about her mystical experiences during prayer, which was intended to be an instruction manual for her fellow nuns. As a consequence, we see her interpreting her experiences of union in the conventional theological framework of her time. Her spiritual experiences are scattered throughout her works, but some o
From Doreen Virtue's Angel Tarot Deck "In early spring, 'when the shade run,' according to tradition, Shadblow bursts into flower upon the naked wood, before the leaves appear or when the foliage is still just budding out and covered with silvery down. the contrast, then, of the long, delicate white petals with the bright red of the scales that hang from the flower stalks is vivid, and no daintier flowers than these, in their season, star the forest aisles." -Donald Culross
From Doreen Virtue's Angel Tarot Deck "Does this inner voice tell you why you can't do something? Is it because it wouldn't be good enough, perfect enough, so it's no use? If a child of yours proudly showed you a drawing or a poem, would you reject it with so little compassion? Had you ever thought of confronting Saturn and saying, "I know perfectly well why I can't do this, but could you tell me how I could? This latter transforms because it enlists the cruel judge to help
From Doreen Virtue's Angel Tarot Deck "Down on the lake rosy reflections of celestial vapor appeared, and I said 'God, I love you' and looked up to the sky and really meant it. 'I have fallen in love with you, God. Take care of us all, one way or the other.' To the children and the innocent it's all the same." -Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums Hard hits from the past are surfacing early this week for us to revisit and rectify. When we center ourselves around our wellspring of
From Doreen Virtue's Angel Tarot Deck "The moment in a story when this integration takes place is marked by the final bringing to light of 'that which has been hidden'; the release of the redeeming value from the shadows. This may be symbolized as the uncovering of a buried treasure, or the reaching of some long-pursued goal...The 'kingdom' or community which was in the shadows, threatened by egotism, has been brought back into the light and restored to itself. The eliminat
