There is Only One Quote is Framed on My Wall... Oprah also loves it
"Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience that you're having? Because you're having it." Eckhart Tolle.
I love this quote and it now serves to guide me to embrace EVERY circumstance I find myself in. If I can't embrace it (some challenges are harder to embrace than others) then I do my very best to merely accept it, not to resist it.
And that's likely the miraculous key to the quote... that when you live this quote, you cease being in so much resistance to your life.
My whole life is better because of this practice.
I have a much friendlier relationship to life. I don't view things as "happening TO me." I view … [Continue reading...]

ANDREA ROMANO NOVEMBER 17, 2017
Find yourself a dark outdoor place (and maybe a friend) tonight.
On Friday, November 17, the fantastic annual spectacle of the Leonid meteor shower will hit its peak around midnight. And 2017 will be a particularly special year to view it, since this year the shower coincides with a new moon.
For those of us who are not experts on lunar phases, this means that the lack of light shining from the moon in the sky will make everything especially dark — perfect viewing conditions for a meteor shower. (As long as you’re in an area that doesn’t have a lot of street lights or other light pollution.)
The shower this year runs from November 6 to … [Continue reading...]
