Dear Friends,

If you can, have a Day of Rest today.  If you can’t, try to figure out when you can, and put it on the calendar.

What I suggest for today is to learn a little bit of something from a spiritual tradition that is different from either what you practice now, or when you were a child.  The history of the human race is that of people who have tried to make sense of the “deep and real” in life, and there have been dozens of traditions that have something good in them that would be helpful to know about.

So I send you to an encyclopedia, or to a bookstore’s selection of books on religion, or to good ol’ Wikipedia:  learn something new about how somebody else tries to make sense of the big questions of life.

In your journal you can summarize what you’ve learned (written out on one of the great backgrounds you did yesterday), create a one-sentence “word of wisdom” that you want to remember, or draw a symbol from a new-to-you depth tradition.

May many blessings be visible today and always,

With love,

Cat
