What Do You Do When A Health Food Salesman Comes to Call?

...Go ahead and vitamin!

This riddle, which was on a greeting card I sent to a friend years ago when she managed the vitamin department of a health food store, might serve as the anthem for now, when a lighthearted, slightly quirky, Aquarian approach will serve us better than any linear, mental reckoning.

We are greenlighting possibility and opportunity. On Caroline Casey's always irreverent, cosmic radio show (archived online), she mentioned that this Chinese Year of the Rat equates to the Hindu deity Ganesh, a well-loved, elephant-headed icon known as The Remover of Obstacles. May it be so!

And along this same reframe, I love what the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who just left the physical plane on February 5th at age 91, had to say about money. According to Deepak Chopra, one day Maharishi and his close advisors were discussing a very expensive venture. "But where is the money going to come from?" asked one, a bit concerned.

"From wherever it is right now," was the Maharishi's cheerful reply.

Ashé! And so it is!
