A mosaic of gifts and footprints – by Paul

.

Dancing on this earth for a short time and yet I ask how do I last forever? Truth, reality says never in human form. So what do I leave? I leave a mosaic of gifts and footprints. All the parts of me create a mosaic of beauty, wonder, awe and love.

“Eyes” – by Paul Martin

.

What is that the eyes see
And the soul despairs?
Is it because the eyes focus
Is about need and existence?
Or is it because the physical eyes
Have limitations based upon
The human aspects of living.
And feeling and emotions
Running amok to not see.

Mosaic Of Life – by Marie Pollnow

.

So this took some pondering.  I wanted to approach mosaic as my life, literally speaking.  So there are many parts to my mosaic yet what really struck me were love, grief (death),  and rebirth.  As a young girl my life started out kind of rough, by Western standards, I was dying.  My mother went into labor with me two months early.  I was four pounds and some ounces.  In those days it was touch and go.  My dad was so afraid I wouldn’t make it he refused to take pictures of me in the hospital.  I was in an incubator, in the Intensive Care Unit.  Dr. Carey delivered me by C-section.  My poor sweet mother.  Once I was out of the woods my father made up for the lack of picture taking and this is where love began.  Love is the first part of my mosaic.

August? Already? – by Annette

.
Wasn’t summer l-o-n-g-e-r when I was younger? I believe it was!  We’d wake up every sunny, warm morning for m-o-n-t-h-s and after the chores, there was plenty of time for swimming, visiting friends and of course to day dream and basically do nothing.  As we had so many of these incredible days, we actually looked forward to the return to school for, believe it or not, we found ourselves a wee bit bored with all the doing nothing energy.

A Holy Rober! – by Annette

.
I am an Interfaith Minister!  Bet you didn’t know that about me, did you.  How could you when I have no shingle hanging in front of my home. Yet I do have a special parking place card that I am supposed to be able to set on the dashboard of my vehicle, thus allowing me special parking privileges if I am on “official business” and they do not already have a slot allocated for the clergy.  As luck would have it, most everything I have done in an “official capacity” has been where I did not have need of such a placard, life is good. It has been my honor over the past 13 years, since I received my ordination, to officiate at weddings and funerals for many families. Because my only affiliation is with God, or Spirit (as some would rather say) I have been able to custom create the ceremony in accordance with the needs of my families. We have always had a beautiful experience as a result.

Flying Colors by Sarah Moore – by Annette

 WWII may look like the alphabet to some but to those of us who had parents or grandparents who served their country in the armed forces during the 1940’s, we recognize those 4 characters as standing for World War Two. As this was such a very long time ago, there are not many around who can provide a first-hand account of the experience and as luck would have it, we have the honor and privilege to meet one such individual in the book Flying Colors by Sarah Moore.  Victor “Vic” Tatelman is now 94 years old but at one time he was a soldier in the United States Army Air Corps. By way of his personal narrative, we step back into of one of the most historic times of the 20th century.  Sarah Moore’s labor of love has given birth to Flying Colors which immortalizes this mortal man in fine style.

Exploring the Akashic Records – by Sandra Gelinas

.
From now on my two Akashic Records partners, who’ve collaborated with me in the Akashic Records since 2005, will also be writing articles for what is now “our” column! So you may notice that I’ve changed the name of our column to “Akashic AllianceTM” because that is the name for our joint venture that we received from the Records. Each month one of us will write an article, perhaps about the Records, perhaps not. The good news for you is that instead of this column appearing only four times yearly, you’ll now find an interesting and educational article here each month.

How 4 organic lemons make a difference – by Kristine Grün


Dear all,

I appologise my m.i.a. the past few months.

In April my world turned upside-down when I lost one of my younger brothers. And I watched my great philosophy of abundance, change and happiness fall heavily to the ground. No words can describe or explain the crisis that me and my family and everyone connected to him went through – so I am not going to try – at least not now. Maybe I am not ready. I hope I will find the courage one day.

Back to Basics – By Lee Pryke

.
This year has been an adventure for me getting back to basics and discovering the beauty in nature and the power of what Mother Earth provides with the variety of plants, trees and flowers. I discovered Earthing a few years ago and how the earth heals our physical body when we step on her with our bare feet. If you sit, walk, or lay on the earth for 20 minute a day you will see how better your body feels as Mother Earth takes the negative from us, and many people with arthritis and other chronic pain issues experience a positive difference by practicing Earthing. In my region, we have the summer and fall where this is possible but when the snow falls it gets a little cold on the feet.

Hoofprint in Zen – Spirits Rising – by Bob Rush

.
Transcendence is a term which carries raw power, spiritual beauty, grace and a depth of soul. To transcend is to reach beyond the ordinary and seek to aspire to our higher calling and get closer to our divine self. We are so often trapped by self imposed roadblocks and outside preconceived notions of who we should be. Note the use of “should”. Bad word, that should. Too often , we go through this incarnation saying that we should do this or that. Listening to every source except that nice, still, small voice within. Our journey is based on becoming aware and it is also about making right choices. We are equipped with so many divine tools, yet we blindly follow in lock-step what society and media feel is appropriate for us. Exercising an enlightened choice is a right step for us to be in harmony with the universe’s melody. If we follow the wrong choice, we are on the road to unhappiness, depression, addiction and an unfulfilled life. We need to be risk takers, willing to rise above the mundane and take that leap of faith towards the stars. Remember a simple mantra, “Progress not perfection”

Intentional Living – by Jonathan

.
I had a semi-catastrophic event happen recently that momentarily left me in a frozen state of shock. It had to do with finance. It was the kind of event that put me in a pivotal position where decision making is concerned, as well as putting into question whether intention was really working for me.
.
I am a writer. I made a decision about seven years ago to leave my career –day job- and pursue my dream of being a writer. I was full of ideas, but really had no agenda aside from writing lots of books. I soon found that my decision was actually a commitment to learning a new trade and that a basic talent for writing was only a prerequisite to begin the journey.

Your Life’s Grand Multiplicity – by Laurie Seymour

.
Do you acknowledge the pieces that have created you as you are?
.
In my travels around the world I’ve seen magnificent mosaics—haunting icons in temples and churches and luminous images in museums and galleries. Always it is a “whole” that is crafted from pieces of this and that, often with the addition of precious materials. The “whole” is striking. It lives because of the masterful vision that coalesced, selecting each single aspect for its ability to relate to its neighbor. The whole represents our inter-connectedness. Similarity isn’t relevant. Diversity acts to highlight. Both harmony and dissonance have a place in creation.

Self Storage? – by David Franklin Farkas

.
One of the most ancient teachings
across mystical traditions is usually stated, ‘As Above, So Below. As Within, So Without.’ I’ve written about this before, but there are always new and continuing examples from real life.
As Above, So Below. As Within, So Withoutif you truly understand one level of reality it will show you hidden parallel realities. And, what is manifested in your physical reality represents what is hidden in your inner reality.

Your Life is like a Mosaic – by Sara Jane

.
What is a Mosaic?
.
Can you picture one?
.
Lots of different coloured pieces of glass or tile; little pieces that are all stuck together to create a picture.
.
As a single piece they appear to be nothing but a broken piece of tile or glass but when they are put together, they create something beautiful.
