From a spiritual perspective the universe is wise and carrying. Everything is organized with deep wisdom and every thing is acted out with love. Each of us has an inner driver, a direction or goal that will complete us. Like the returning of the lost soul we will head back to a place we came from, but with gained experience. The returning is like winding back your life, is like stopping your continued mistakes and acting differently as you start to follow a higher good, a higher will. Higher in the sense that it benefits a bigger whole a bigger holon.

When life takes a turn and you think it isn’t in your best interest, it will trigger a lot of negative emotions. We tend to feel upset or angry, filled with fear or doubt, if we don’t understand what happened. Or how it could possibly benefit your existence. When things crumble under your feet, there you will find the challenges. As well what kind of choices you will make to deal with the new situation. Awareness is part of this way of your perception. The observer is possibly more adept to view from a different kind of perspective, to notice what takes place. To be in a different more detached place to see the picture in a broader way.

Will The Real Spirit Entity Please Stand Up – by Moon Laramie

It is very easy to imagine the Victorians as dour narrow-minded moralists. While Victorian society was undeniably conventional and repressed, many Victorians were also imaginative and open to new ideas. There were great scientific advancements during the Victorian era. Charles Darwin first posited his theories of evolution, Richard Owen produced the first life-sized reconstructions of dinosaurs and Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone. There were also significant developments in metaphysics and spirituality. William Westcott founded the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and Helena Blavatsky founded the Theosophical Society. Today, Blavatsky is commonly regarded as the mother of the modern mind, body, spirit movement.

What is so hard about letting go? Why do we hold on so tightly to past wrongs that have been done to us? Is there a way of releasing this “stuff” and moving on?

Eats a Feastival – by Annette Rochelle Aben


At this time of year, many fill their larders with ingredients which they will turn into sumptuous creations upon which to feast. The traditional desserts, dinners and drinks that make the season merrier shall appear in abundance. Even our family has a rather lengthy list of that which would be conspicuous by its absence.  Every year, we maintain a festive atmosphere which includes laying out a delicious spread for family and friends. It’s what we like to do and as such, we always have a good time.

Five years ago, I entered a part of my life’s journey that was very new for me.  It was a time when it hit me smack dab in the face that I had been living my life in a way that did not allow me to be a happy fulfilled individual.  When I began to really take a look around me at all the people enjoying life and realizing that I wasn’t, I began to read and study on things so that I could achieve happiness also.

Let Go! Be the Flow! – by Shuddhaanandaa Bramachari


Do you know why all your success and possessions can’t make you happy and why some mistakes and guilt steal your happiness? Do you know why things that went wrong in life bother you and keep you brooding over the past and worried about the future? It is due to your inability to release your negative emotions. You cling to them and keep complaining how life has not been fair with you.

The Clock Time Conundrum – by Moon Laramie

Sometimes, I find myself rushing through parts of my day. I rush to get ready. I rush to finish an email. I rush to get to an appointment. The reason is simple, I look at my watch and I realise I am short of time. I feel pressured to rush. My hurry is instigated by the simple act of looking at my watch. This predicament was perhaps best described by Jane Austen, ‘Do not attack me with your watch. A watch is always too fast or too slow. I cannot be dictated to by a watch.’ Yet modern society is so structured around clock time that trying to exist without it would be highly problematic.

Love of Clocks Inherited From My Mother – by Marie Pollnow


I love clocks.  I take after my mother that way.  She was absolutely obsessed with clocks.  She was very mechanical and could take apart a wind up clock and put it back together.  It was cool.  She had more mechanical ability than my Dad.  Who said women can’t fix things?  Hickory, Dickory, Dock. The mouse went up the clock.  There are so many stories revolving around clocks in fact we have revered clocks for centuries.  They have been at the center of movie plots and built anticipation on many occasions.  As a young person my home was full of clocks.  I still love them.

No Time But the Present – by Annette Rochelle Aben


I recently received word that a dear friend of mine was in trouble. It seems she has been named in a lawsuit alleging that she contributed to the untimely death of a mutual friend of ours. Of course, this news rocked my world and I can only imagine what it was doing to her and her family. As of this writing, that is all I know for sure, but I am aware this is only the beginning of what will prove to be her darkest night of the soul.

Emotional W.I.N.G.S. – by Nancy Zimmerman

.
.
When beginning this essay, I was not certain where to turn.  I have been using acronyms quite frequently and enjoy them.  As I looked at the themes and saw “wings” I was immediately drawn to the freedom I felt as I pictured me with wings flying high above the hustle and bustle of life on the ground.  I felt this might make an interesting essay but as I looked at the letters, there were not emotions or feelings that came to mind.
.
After doing some research, I did come up with some ideas that I am going to share with you about W.I.N.G.S.
.
W –   I found not only emotions but also adjectives that describe feelings. One can be warm-hearted or weak.  You can be whimsical or woeful, wonderful or wretched.  The choices are limitless and that is the point of lists like this.  Each of the descriptive adjectives brings forth a feeling based on what we associate with that particular word.  As a person who traverses through life daily, we can choose to be whatever we want.  We can choose to be wicked, wishy washy or worthless.  If that is the case then we can also choose to be wanted, warm or witty.  The choice is ours daily about how we choose to describe ourselves.  However we describe ourselves is how we act and who we become.
.
I – Surprisingly, there were about two hundred fifty words or phrases to describe feelings and emotions for the letter “I”.  Some of those included: impure, inspired, ignorant, and interesting.  if you are thought to be impure or ignorant, you will certainly behave and react to others differently than if you are said to be inspired and interesting.  We choose how we portray ourselves and we choose how we perceive others.  If we look for the positive aspects of all individuals we meet, we can elevate them to a higher place.  If we take negative descriptive words out of our vocabulary when it comes to describing others, they will not know the disappointment of being treated less than valuable.
.
N – Thinking about the entire word, wings, I think of phrases like “flying with eagles.”  This being the case, the one word that resonates with me at this “letter level” is “noble.”  As we soar with the eagles, we are indeed expressing the most noble of our characteristics.  There may be times when we are down grubbing for the earthworms and have less than noble intentions, however.  The nobility of the eagle is one that inspires awe and respect among us all.  In our effort to soar we need to remember the importance of nobility as we are called on to exhibit it.
.
G – As I soar with the eagles on wing, I think that gallant and grateful apply.  I also like to think I am good-natured to add to that list.  As we near the end of this essay, I once again remind you of the word– wing– a word whose very nature calls us to think of the birds and the freedom that their wings allow them in life.  Whether it is an eagle or a cardinal, it is in the very lift of the wings that freedom is expressed.  They are also very graceful as they embrace the world.
.
S – Wow!  Just Wow!  Over four hundred words to describe feelings and emotions with the letter S.  They go from sluggish to strong and from subjugated to stupendous.  As this essay has attempted to help you see, you are what you focus on.  You are how you perceive yourself.  How others see you is based on how you see yourself.  It is all up to you.  If you want to  become something more than you are, you cannot do it while giving yourself the same messages over and over.  You need to find new words to describe you and a new story to tell.  Tell your life in positive terms.  Feel the words and become the words.  Make them the very best description of you that you can and the evidence of that belief will become clear.

Clock Wise or Counterpart Reading Time – by Rhea Dopmeijer


You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down.
.
We are so used and trained to read the time which starts already in our childhood. Who doesn’t remember, as a 4 or 5 year old, we learned to read a clock. Either the digital for the younger generation, or the clock with the numbers 1 to 12. Not just learning the numbers, all the spaces between them, the minutes in an hour. Time was measured, divided in pieces to make it understandable.
.
A linear way of measuring, so to speak, and the world got divided in time zones. Measured by the Sun and its journey, as we experience it in our reality. At one point in time these zones were set and regarded as a world clock to enable humanity to stay in touch with each other. In ancient times there was no such thing as a clock, nor did our ancestors needed one.
.
Progression or evolution is debatable for a lot of scientists.
.
Exploring the way we sometimes have one day short in a month, as we are accustomed to in the western world. Every culture had their own way of measuring time and dates. It depended on religion as well science when the new year would start. The more we got connected through the use of telex and telephone, the importance of adjusting to the different time zones became more important. Businesses were conducted within the different time zones. Some were going back in time, others forward. How effects this the global awareness as well our own awareness. Who is still able to work freely with time, because of the alignment with the inner sense of time..
.

Sometimes, I feel time stands still and other times I have trouble to follow the speed it seems to take. Probably because of all the events that are taking place simultaneously all over our planet that creates this kind of confusion. Living in different time zones makes it almost impossible to wrap your head around it.
.
Especially when all electricity has been damaging the systems as well the internet and phone. Which makes communication even harder to reach each other over the world. A lot of people are travelling around the globe to find a new job, visit family or just having a holiday planned. It makes it so clear how much we are depending on the clock and time span we live in.

Creating Realities Beyond Time and Space – by Patty Paul


One summer’s day in 2015 I decided embark on meditative journey that would help me experience a state of being far beyond the limitations of time and space that exist in our three-dimensional physical plane. More specifically, I wanted to move beyond the matrix of our current paradigm, with its principles of chauvinism that seek domination over and create separation in our “It’s either them or me, dog-eat-dog, survival-of-the-fittest” world.  Knowing that such utopian realities already exist in the realms multi-dimensional unconscious, where all things are happening “now,” I wanted to feel my energies blending with those in a brand new paradigm.

Strengthen Your Wings and Soar! – by Shuddhaanandaa Brahmachari


Every struggle we go through is only to strengthen our wings so that we can achieve the purpose for which the Higher Intelligence has brought us to this earthly plane of consciousness. Our greatest obstacles and pains are nature’s way to prepare us for our greatest good. A little baby bird tries with all its might to free itself from its shell, and sometimes makes a long struggle. This struggle, although difficult for a human to watch without helping, is absolutely necessary for the young bird’s physical health and future growth! Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If God allowed us to go through our life without any obstacles it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as we could have been. We could never fly.

Time Flies – by Linda Lang


Tick-tock. Tick-tock The proverbial clock keeps ticking. The hands of time going around and around.  They say that time is an illusion, and perhaps that is so, but here in this place, it is how we measure many aspects of life.  How much time will it take?  How did you spend your time today? How long is one’s life?
