Exploring Your World Now – by David J. Little


What would it be like, to be given a choice from the Universe? How does change affect you? How are you open to exploring new possibilities? These are few questions that come up as a theme in my life and maybe in yours. I would like to explore the possibilities that change brings.

March may come in like a lion, but there’s no time like the present to start treating yourself as gently as a lamb. Making changes to the things we do can have a powerful impact on our lives, but we mustn’t forget to apply this same process to how we
think – especially when it comes to how we think about ourselves.

March is National Music in Our Schools Month – by Annette Rochelle Aben


For as long as I can remember, music has played a significant role in my life. Not only were both my parents musically inclined but there was always some sort of music program in the schools I attended. This meant we were offered the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument or there was a vocal music class where every student participated in learning how to sing. Having music as part of my growing experience, enriched my life beyond what mere words can convey. To this day, I have a radio in every room of my home, and a collection of recorded music that includes everything except 8-track.

You can repeat your mistakes again and again or face them and change them. You can postpone again and again or take action. You can suppress again and again or express by opening the closed drawer, getting some fresh air or let the feelings flow.

Akashic Alliance: “The Garden of Secrets” – by Sandra Gelinas


Standing at her window, staring at grey skies heavy with more rain and soggy grass covered in old dead leaves, the only color she sees is the gloomy dark green of the evergreen trees. She’s bored, seriously bored with heaps of restless on top! The long cold winter is slowly drawing to an end. Spring is close, but not yet here. She longs to escape but feels there’s nowhere to go.

Be still. Breathe. Relax. Take in another breath of air. This is your body’s means for keeping you alive. This simple act that your body performs day after day, moment by moment, most often without your awareness, is essential for your survival. Just like this simple act has greatness within it, you too, whom you may think is small and insignificant, also have greatness within you and it is this greatness that you are here to share with the world.

Finding the Fountain of Youth – by Annette Rochelle Aben


As I was growing up, I used to hear people say, “Well, you learn something new, every day.” Of course, it generally followed an “ah-ha” moment for them and was a pretty clever way of them owning their humility by admitting they didn’t know everything there was to know. Naturally, I didn’t appreciate any of it until I reached an age when everyone expected I should pretty much know everything. After all, what are people in my age bracket doing on this earth if not to be a reputable source of wisdom and knowledge! How happy was I, now that I had everything all figured out!

Zeus and the Rise of the Olympians – A Review by Hercules Invictus


Between my mom’s mythic bedtime stories, a very thorough Greek Parochial School education, and my own life-long passion for the Mythology of my ancestors, the tale of Father Zeus’ ascent to the Throne of Mount Olympus is already very much a part of me. It is firmly etched on my neurons and comfortably nestled in all the strata of my psyche.

Exploring Your Life – by Nancy Zimmerman


When we hear about exploring, all sorts of things come to mind. We think of the vast frontier that is Outer Space. We recall all of the past voyages out into the Universe. We draw from pictures taken on lunar exploration and we become excited with the possibilities.  We think of the exploration that those brave souls did when they crossed the unknown waters and came from the eastern hemisphere to the western hemisphere. We also think of the exploration that occurred on all of the continents in the world and all of the exploration that is still taking place. We sink to the depths of the ocean to find wonders that abound there. All of this is exploration at its finest and we are a part of it as we read about the adventures of other explorers.

Hermes Trismegistus
is an ancient sage whose story is steeped in mystery. Some scholars believe he invented the Egyptian hieroglyphic system, others that he built the pyramids, created the Greek alphabet and even wrote the Chinese divinatory book of I Ching. To early Christians, he was a great savant, who preceded Moses and received revelations from God. In wider terms he is often seen as the founder of civilisation, the creator of medicine, law, mathematics and philosophy. He is accredited as the author of the foundational mystical writings known as the Hermetica. The Christian saint and theologian, Clement of Alexandria, attributed forty-two books to him in total although some academics suggest the number may run into the tens of thousands. The name Trismegistus means ‘thrice great’. It refers to Hermes knowledge of the three essential aspects of universal wisdom: astrology, alchemy and magic. The key to unravelling the mystery of Hermes Trismegistus is to be found in Hellenistic Egypt.

Holonity – The sense of thought – by Andreas N. Bjørndal

Yes, you can sense your own thinking as well as the thinking of another. Last month, we explored the sense of words but even deeper than words is the perception of concepts. We did not discriminate it much last time. Now, we are ready to look into this more subtle level. For some people the level of words is what they relate to. To perceive the other person’s way of thinking is to get beyond the words, to get even closer to the core of their identity.
When Descartes formulated “cogito ergo sum” he understood the close connection between the thinking and the awareness of an individual’s identity.

Live, Explore, Love – by Renee Harrison


Life.

You know how the old mainstream story goes. You are born, go to school, pick a career path or not, get married, raise a family, hopefully, send them off to college, retire, finally travel, grow old and die. Many people follow this script.

Exploring Our Inner Self – by Shuddhaanandaa Brahmachari


Life is a neutral gift of the Universe to each one of us. It is infinite in its scope for exploration and realization. It is part of the human condition to feel a deep sense that all of life needs to be experienced. When exploration of the external world comes to a point where we have seen it, tasted it, and are still feeling the urge to seek and search, then a new horizon opens. This new, deep urge to find the ultimate answers comes either when we suddenly bump into a very difficult ordeal or situation of life, or when we come in contact with a holy person who inspires us by their very presence to begin the journey within.
