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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Joy of Water – by Nancy Zimmerman

Water, water everywhere, nor any  drop to drink.”  This is a line taken from the “Rime of the Ancient Mariner” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge.  It was spoken by a sailor who found himself stranded in the middle of the ocean filled with saltwater.  In the twenty-first century, we are hearing the predictions of what is happening to our supply of freshwater which is locked into the frozen water polar icecaps.  As the planet warms, the icecaps are melting and the fresh water being unlocked is combining with the salt water of the oceans.  Not only are we losing fresh water, we are changing the composition of the oceans, little at a time, which will affect ocean life.  It is a cyclical occurrence with no single easy solution.  Information about water then becomes necessary for us to celebrate this substance that is necessary for all of us to live on the “blue planet” we call earth.

When Your Heart Skips a Beat – by Rhea Dopmeijer


What you come to realize, when your heart skips a beat

As always my journey consists out of those aha moments when things come together in some kind of synchronicity. Like checking out something and get a message you weren’t expected or looking for. The moment you realize what it is you see or hear, your heart just skips a bit because of the impact it has. Not just on your mind, it has such a powerful effect on my heart, it literally skips a bit. Usually it comes with a physical sensation like goose bumps as well. When this happens I know the profound depth of the revelation I receive. Like just exploring deeper levels within myself and to get a deep loving realization at that moment.
