History – by Kishan Takahashi


Learning seems to be a form of progress and moving forward, whether the past has been either kind or not.
History (from Greek ἱστορία, historia, meaning “inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation”) is the study of the past as it is described in written documents. Events occurring before written record are considered prehistory.

View can change reality – by Andreas N. Bjørndal

Through time and across cultures reality has been perceived different. And each time you can be sure it is believed to be the real and final thing.
.
Today in the post-postmodern world the materialistic worldview has become almost exclusive. We have refined the way we use the matter to such a level of sophistication that we are blinded by it. Long time ago we learned to cultivate matter into tools. Within the last thousand years we learned to make machines first driven by man or animals, then we invented the engine and the last 50 years the engine has become an electric computer dealing with information and playing with artificial intelligence in such a way that we can make a man like machine or humanoid.

Freeing ourselves from history – by Annie Gelfand


How many times do you look in the mirror and think “my thighs are too fat”, or “my nose is too big”  or “my fat is too fat”? We all do it! Wherever we learned to fixate on our bodies as the definition of our self worth really doesn’t matter. What matters is what we choose in every moment.

Stalking My Roots – by Bob Rush


I admit, I am somewhat of a history buff. The past can shed light on our journey forward. There is so much to be learned and assimilated from our individual legacies, And it is with this knowledge, that can give us a sense of purpose and direction. Its like saying , “where do we go from here?”. Now, I am not saying that I am sure I am a direct descendant of George Washington or Abraham Lincoln. That is too easy. There is just something special and satisfying in finding your roots. I am extremely grateful to my late mom and my sister for doing a heck of lot of the geneological research and leg work on the family history.

Who View? – by Annette Rochelle Aben


Charles Swindoll has a famous quote: “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” If we were to take this to heart, then our lives would be much easier. This quote encourages us to remember that the power is not in a situation, the power is in our mastery of ourselves in any given situation.

Dancing With Simon – by Marie Pollnow


Dance or dancing.  I love dancing from what I understand I was dancing in the crib.  I had my days and nights mixed up.  I supposed some of my first memories of dance were from seeing my parents dance.  They would play their depression era slow songs and have a dance or two.  It was a pleasant experience.

Let Your Life Dance – by Rhea Dopmeijer

Everybody loves to dance, yet we feel that not everyone is good in performing. Our body automatically responds to rhythm as well to music. All our senses are being tuned in, the minute we listen to music, we can feel the way emotions are being expressed. The way the tones are uplifting or down to earth.

Viewing crop circles up-close and personal – by Patty Paul


I first became interested in crop circles in 1986 when I began learning about their deeper meanings; how sacred they are and what positive messages they hold for humanity, for our beautiful blue planet Earth, and for me personally. To this day, I feel such a strong connection to the intricately detailed crop designs that manifest, with no logical explanation, around the world. In 1995, aerial photos of amazing and beautiful crop designs became available on the internet and I’ve been viewing them with awe and delight ever since. But when I saw my first crop circle in person, I could hardly believe my eyes. That happened in England.

Theosophy is a movement founded in the late nineteenth century by Helena Blavatsky. It proposes that there is a universal truth known to humankind for millennia. Over time, that truth has become hidden, scattered among the religions of the world. Blavatsky sought to uncover the truth through the comparative study of science, philosophy and religion.

The Sacred Dance of Life – by Shuddhaanandaa-Brahmachari


It is only on the surface, at the periphery, that we see the world of randomness, but deep at its root, the dance of life is in perfect harmony and balance. The Divine designer has designed this unique creation with LOVE and connected everything together; nothing is separated from the other. The level where matter and energy play the dance of creativity is the quantum level, the root of the tree of life. Here is where the essence of life happens, and then the flower blossoms, fragrance spreads, bees come running. They take away the essence, the honey. The flower smiles, the bees sing and dance, the universal ballet continues. This is the sacred dance of the cosmos that is LOVE.

Fire Burns The Old – by Marie Pollnow


When I think of fire, I think of renewal.  A fire cannot start without a thought and it requires several actions to make one.  If you look at a flame, not only does it have many different colors but it easily puts you in a trance.  Different metal elements change the appearance of the flames.  Yellow, orange, red, blue and violet.  All colors of the rainbow.

Fire is burning in your bones – by Andreas N. Bjørndal

Fire is everywhere. Actually it all started with a Big Bang of exploding energy or fire. Even the earth is a ball of fire with a crust that has slowly cooled down so that we can live on its surface.
.
The most obvious place we see this fire is in the sun. Also being created by the Big Bang, the sun warms us up, giving us fire of life every day, year after year.

F.I.R.E. Up Your Walk – by Nancy Zimmerman

We all have a life to live and  a path that will take us into that life.  It is often said that you will see dates on a tombstone that will indicate the year of your birth and the year of your death.  Between those two numbers is a dash.  The dash represents all that we are between birth and death.  What will your dash say about you?  Last month I began talking about walking the walk.  This month, I am going to take things up a bit more and discuss how I have found that I can fire up my walk, yet still remaining true to myself.

The Conflict of Self – by Stephen Metcalfe-Davies

.
If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you. 
~ From The Gospel of St Thomas.
.
Each of us are tasked to look within ourselves and bring forth the shadows that lie deep within us and then face them. Ancient Shamans and Indian tribes did this to bring balance to the self, a kind of psychic therapy. Facing your shadows would also mean that they are not projected into the physical world by your energy. How many of us run away from ourselves and instead, give in to fear and ego, a conflict of self. Recognize, that everything we see in this world is a result of our collective intentions and thoughts. The world is but a reflection, a mirror of those thoughts, positive and negative.

The Delectable Phenomenon – by Moon Laramie

.
At the end of my cancer treatment in September 2015, I was given a clean bill of health. That day I came home to a world that looked sparkling and full of possibilities. The city outside my window seemed more alive, beautiful art works more delectable, the smell of flowers more vivid, moments spent with my husband more precious. I was seeing the world with fresh eyes. I later came to realise that my good news had induced what is known as a peak experience. The peak experience was first studied extensively in the nineteen sixties by the psychologist Abraham Maslow. A peak experience involves a feeling of joy and illumination in the moment. The immediate consequence of a peak experience is that one sees life as more valuable and meaningful. Maslow’s work on peak experiences was considered groundbreaking because he studied psychologically healthy people rather than those with psychological disorders.

Sometimes people want you to perform and deliver your best effort, in order to challenge you to do the best you can. When this is out of love, it will be not just a challenge, it is also about trust for the best interest they have in you. I think we all know those attempts to perform, one way or the other.
