What are you dressing as this year? – by Kat McCarthy


Sitting here looking out my window, got me to pondering about how much things change and how little things change.  The leaves are changing, it’s autumn now. Autumn, like all the other seasons, is a wonderful time of year. It represents yet another transition and yet it is similar to every other autumn. Seasons flow from one to another, like water.

Realizing Personal Power – by Patty Paul


A human is such a complex being, much like a jigsaw puzzle with an infinite number of pieces.  Our life’s ultimate purpose is to discover those pieces and to understand them, because they are all aspects of the greater, more enlightened and self-empowered being we truly are.  Each of us is a unique spiritual being finding our own way to becoming More, and the quest for self-knowledge is our soul’s desire in lifetime after lifetime.  By realizing our personal power sooner, rather than later, we can expedite our journey.  The biggest hurdle to overcome: Giving our power away.

Every now and then, we are faced with challenges, trouble, and discomfort, which are problems we need to solve. Sometimes, our sense of well being is strong and we feel we can face any problem, other times we have been hit again and again. The challenges seem too many or too stuck.

The God-incidence of Water – by Shuddhaanandaa Brahmachari


Water is one element of Mother Nature that can retain what we communicate to it; it basically absorbs those vibrations and preserves them. That’s the wonderful thing about water; it has its own intelligence and can maintain our thought and word energy. If you speak sacred syllables of mantras to water, the water gets more and more sanctified, more and more energized. If you drink such water it’s more like energizing your body. Most importantly, because our body is 70% water, we have to be very careful about what we take in because our body absorbs words, thoughts, emotions, and feelings very intelligently.

A Zen Hoofprint – by Bob Rush


This day finds me thoughtful. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have left their imprint on many lives and of course, it is the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. It is with these images in mind that I need to be even more grateful than ever. Life is just too short to whine. I give myself a little analogy when I get frantic. I could be the one who has to walk miles with two buckets to get water. There is a documentary movie out , “Happy“. Give it a look. It gave me a new perspective on what really makes us happy.

It is so crucial that we try to stay in and appreciate the moment. There cannot be an attitude that “it can’t happen to me or here.” As we have seen in recent history, there is no real safety. We must be vigilant but not stop living our lives. We cannot close our minds and hearts in fear. It begins with something as simple as remembering to breathe. I am approaching my sixty fourth year on this journey and looking for the opportunity to gear down a bit. Not time to retire but more a chance to slow down the pace.

Realization By Numbers – by Moon Laramie

Pythagoras
the Ancient Greek philosopher believed that mathematics played a key role in the realisation of everything in the universe. Pythagoras traced the origins of all things in the cosmos to  one common factor – number. Students of Pythagoras believed the study of the relationships between numbers would reveal the truth of who we are and why we are here. The Pythagorean scholar Philolaus ventured that the number one was the origin of all creation. It represented the singularity of the cosmos, the essential unity of everything in existence. From this unity the material universe evolved into two essential aspects, the finite and the infinite. Odd numbers represented the finite. Even numbers represented the infinite.

Do we have a sixth sense, or more senses? by Andreas N. Bjørndal

Most people regard the five senses as absolute and a possible sixth sense as a kind of uncertain ghost. After having looked into the five senses, let us explore if there are more (see bottom for articles about the five senses). If you think about it, you do get sense information from more than the five senses.

The Tablets of Light – A Review by Hercules Invictus


The Tablets of Light, channeled and co-authored by Danielle Rama Hoffman, is not a book in the usual sense of the word. It looks like a book, is structured and can be read like one, but it is not a standard terrestrial document with a clear beginning, middle or end.

Using Our Real Eyes – by Annette Rochelle Aben


When she was little, my sister’s favorite gift to receive was a rock. That’s right, a plain old, find it in the driveway, rock. She’d “ooh” and “ahh” while cuddling it and giving it wee kisses. Whatever did this little girl “see” in this rock?  Something that others could not!  There were no dazzling colors, special designs or natural shapes such as a heart to encourage her favor. All we can conclude, is that she was seeing the beauty and worth of the rock, through her “real eyes”, the eyes of her soul.

Realiz(ations) – by Bob Rush


Things we have come to know and process become imprints even to the point of touching the soul. My journey to date has been a bit all over the map. A little zig, a little zag, one step forward and three steps back. But, that is okay. I guess perfection might be a bit boring. Over the course of my time here, I am hopeful that I have learned a few things. The journey is in each moment and how we realize the magic in ordinary occurrences. Sometimes the key is a heightened awareness. So, here are a few observations (aka realizations) from the fun so far.
