Daily Words of the Buddha for June 26, 2017

Pāli Word a Day for June 26, 2017 — jotaka — illuminating, making light; explaining

Pahūtavitto puriso
sahirañño sabhojano,
eko bhuñjati sādūni —
taṃ parābhavato mukhaṃ.

To have much wealth
and ample gold and food,
but to enjoy one’s luxuries alone —
this is a cause of one’s downfall.

Sutta Nipāta 1.102
Everyman’s Ethics: Four Discourses by the Buddha (WH 14), translated by Narada Thera

Today’s Meditation, by James Allen

Without exertion nothing can be accomplished.

Be still, my soul, and know that peace is thine. Be steadfast, heart, and know that strength divine Belongs to thee; cease from thy turmoil, mind, and thou the Everlasting Rest shalt find.  If a man would have peace, let him exercise the spirit of peace; if he would find Love, let him dwell in the spirit of Love; if he would escape suffering, let him cease to inflict it; if he would do noble things for humanity, let him cease to do ignoble things for himself. If he will but quarry the mine of his own soul, he shall find there all the materials for building whatsoever he will, and he shall find there also the Central Rock on which to build in safety.

Tarot Contemplation – Three of Cups

Today is a day to celebrate with dear friends. There is positive growth and emotional union between two or more people with today’s energies. Whether the blessings in your life are big or small, when you take time to show your appreciation, the joy in your community multiplies and keeps flowing.  A new relationship will grow into a real friendship.  You may be invited to a party that you will definitely enjoy.  Why not call up that dear friend that you haven’t talked to in a while and set up a date for tea or a night out?!  If you’ve been looking for new love, you might find there’s mutual attraction and affection between you and your newest love interest.

Morning Meditation, by James Allen

By curbing his tongue, a man gains possession of his mind. The fool babbles, gossips, argues, and bandies words. He glories in the fact that he has had the last word, and has silenced his opponent. He exults in his own folly, is ever on the defensive, and wastes his energies in unprofitable channels. He is like a gardener who continues to dig and plant in unproductive soil. The wise man avoids idle words, gossips, vain argument, and self-defence. He is content to appear defeated; rejoices when he is defeated; knowing that, having found and removed another error in himself, he has thereby become wiser. Blessed is he who does not strive for the last word. — James Allen

Reflections …

The true silence is not merely a silent tongue; it is a silent mind. To merely hold one’s tongue, and yet to carry about a disturbed and rankling mind, is no remedy for weakness, and no source of power.  Silentness, to be powerful, must envelop the whole mind, must permeate every chamber of the heart; it must be the silence of peace.  To this broad, deep, abiding silentness a man attains only in the measure that he conquers himself.  — James Allen

Tarot Contemplation – Death

Today may be more about “out with the old and in with the new” as the Death card implies a new beginning. It doesn’t mean you have to throw out all of the old, as you can often salvage something from the past to carry forward into your future.

For Love:  Your relationship may be going through some changes which can lead to transformation. Whether you wish for these changes to be positive or negative is in your hands. One thing is certain though, it will not be boring.

For Work:  There may be some variety around for you today when it comes to work or you may have a desire to change your job. Whatever you are thinking about doing should work out well for you as the Death card often means change which is usually for the better.

Cancer Moon is in a mood today 6-24-2017

Libra Seeking Balance

The Cancer Moon has a decent morning but by midday that changes. It starts when she conjoins contentious Mars in Cancer while squaring Jupiter in Libra. This combination is just about guaranteed to make mountains out of molehills in a matter of minutes. Family gatherings could be particularly fraught since no one knows how to make us lose our cool faster than family. A mid-late afternoon sextile to Neptune in Pisces will help cool things down, but when the Cancer Moon opposes Pluto in Capricorn this evening the disagreements could re-emerge. Cancer is a cardinal sign and as such will take action if pushed. Please be respectful of other people’s opinions and practice kindness towards everyone. 🌠☽♋🌠

The predawn trine between Venus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn will help us sort out relationship issues pertaining to finances, so that’s a plus today. However the waxing square between Mars in…

Pāli Word a Day for June 24, 2017 — maddava — mild, gentle, soft

Maraṇenapi taṃ pahīyati
yaṃ puriso mamidanti maññati.
Etampi viditvā paṇḍito,

At death a person abandons
what one construes as mine.
Realizing this, the wise
shouldn’t incline
to be devoted to mine.

Natural Bug Repellent 

The Heathen Homesteader

In a group I help run I posted about a natural bug (and arachnid) repellent I was making for our porch and patio today. It was essentially half my essential oils and a stick of cinnamon I soaked in a half and half vinegar/water mix. There are many different oils and herbs one could procure to help ward off a variety of bugs without chemicals.

Some of these include:

*Lavender

*Citronella

*Lemongrass

*Tea Tree

*Eucalyptus

*Mint (any kind)

*Marigold

*Geranium

*Cedarwood

*Rosemary

*Citrus – Lemon, Lime, Orange, Grapefruit, etc.

*Cinnamon

*etc.

I usually do a mix of what I have on hand to ward off different types of bugs but if you have a specific pest you can easily find specific herb/s for them.

After I have made my repellent I either add a cup to a gallon of water and wash the porch with it or I put it…

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Greetings artists, dreamers and moon people, we are entering the first “Water” New Moon of Summer on Friday June 23, 2017, 7:30 pm (pdt) in the sign of Cancer at 2° degrees. Summer Solstice week marks the next three moons of the summer season, the first moon of summer sets the new beginning, the second moon of summer is the fullness and the final moon is the wisdom stage.

This is a very powerful Cancer moon (just like last year), be very mindful of your words to match the complimentary actions, otherwise disconnected actions will cause problems. This is because Saturn will be watching our every move, we should speak less randomly this moon, replacing this with more attention and awareness, especially around family issues. Say what you mean and follow through with real action or don’t say it at all. I say this because…
