Sunday inspiration from Oprah

Oprah inspirational quotes

I’m not embarrassed to say that over the last 20 years I have derived some of my greatest inspiration from Oprah, and have learned a great deal from the guests on her show.  It would be impossible to overstate the effect that this one woman has had on millions of people around the world in their efforts to achieve personal transformation.

In honor of her final network television show, here are some of my favorite quotes from Oprah Winfrey:

  • “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough”
  • “Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not.”
  • “When you undervalue what you do, the world will undervalue who you are”
  • “Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire.”
  • “Your calling isn’t something that somebody can tell you about. It’s what you feel. It is the thing that gives you juice. The thing that you are supposed to do. And nobody can tell you what that is. You know it inside yourself.”
  • “Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could have been any different, it’s excepting the past for what it was, and using this moment and this time to help yourself move forward”

Sunday inspiration: Butterfly transformation in the collective

Thanks to for about the phenomenon of “imaginal cells” in the metamorphosis of the butterfly:

After a caterpillar buries itself inside its cocoon, it waits to morph into a butterfly.  The caterpillar does not simply shrink a bit and sprout wings.  Instead, it sort of disintegrates into a puddle of ooze within the cocoon.  If we were to open the cocoon halfway through the process, we would not find a half-caterpillar half-butterfly type creature, but a blob of goop.  The goop is made up of a bunch of individual cells that are all basically the same type of oozy cells.  For whatever reason, after the caterpillar has turned into ooze, a new type of cells start appearing.  The original ooze cells are NOT changing into these new cells, but rather the new cells seem to come out of nowhere.  They just appear out of thin air so to speak.

These new cells are called imaginal cells and they are so completely different from the original ooze cells that they are thought to be a virus or some other form of enemy so the ooze cells begin attacking the imaginal cells.  However, even though the imaginal cells are being killed off for not fitting in, they still keep showing up, more and more of them.  Eventually, the imaginal cells begin to find each other and cluster together.  Like attracts like, and the clusters begin to join up with other clusters.  The original ooze cells still keep attacking them but the imaginal cells continue to multiply and cluster together.

Eventually, they become a large community and they switch gears from simply being a group of like-minded cells into the programming cells of the butterfly.  Some imaginal cells start changing into wing cells, […]

Sunday inspiration for healing a wounded heart

Today the Sun is in a harmonious sextile to Chiron, the planet of wounding and healing.  Chiron in the natal chart shows where each of us have been wounded, and where the key to our reclaiming the soul lie.

When the Sun shines its brilliant light of self-realization into the wounds of the soul we have the opportunity to release our bondage to the past and gain greater wisdom.

Sun conjunct Chiron

“A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life. It is the tear [that results] from the injury of the oyster. The treasure of our being in this world is also produced by an injured life. If we had not been wounded, if we had not been injured, then we will not produce the pearl.”

Stephan Hoeller

Sunday Inspiration for the Mars/Pluto square

Over the next few days Mars in Aries will be aligning in a challenging square formation to Pluto. As I wrote yesterday, Pluto is particularly powerful right now since its motion has stalled as it changes direction to travel retrograde for the next six months.  Mars fuels our desires and the expression of our needs – it inspires and motivates us and provides the enthusiasm that helps to keep us going.  In its own sign of Aries it is most powerful, and the desire nature is very strong right now which makes the square to Pluto that much more challenging.  Pluto says “Whoa! not so fast there buddy.  You can’t have everything you want, and I’m going to make sure of it.”

Because Mars and Pluto both deal with personal empowerment – Mars on a personal level and Pluto on a transformation level – any conflict between these two planets can cause us to feel blocked and our anger and frustration can become intense.  I love the way astrologer puts it: “Instead of fighting & amplifying the inner battle, then exhausting yourself. Be still and the path opens up to you.”

So today’s inspiration comes from Sarah MacLachlan from the song “Fumbling Towards Ecstasy”, one of the most spine-tingling songs ever:

All the fear has left me now
I’m not frightened anymore
It’s my heart that pounds beneath my flesh
It’s my mouth that pushes out this breath

And if I shed a tear I won’t cage it
I won’t fear love
And if I feel a rage I won’t deny it
I won’t fear love

Companion to our demons
They will dance, and we will play
With chairs, candles, and cloth
Making darkness in the day
It will be easy to look in or out
Upstream or down without a thought

And if I shed a tear […]

Sunday Inspiration: the beauty of mystery

Inspiration

“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed.”

– Albert Einstein
