.
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. In so many areas there is this demand to perform in something you are not always comfortable in. We know how to excel in those we are good at, comes natural or gained through hard work and perseverance.  In this case it is about writing an article about the topic Perform which includes performance as well the need to be able to deliver something worth reading.

Feeding the Sacred Fire Within – by Shuddhaanandaa Brahmachari


There is an eternal fire within each of us, which symbolically represents our innate divine Self, which is self-illumined. It is symbolically represented as fire or light. There is the fire ritual called yajna in our Hindu tradition. This can be a very powerful form of worship and inner cleansing. There are two ways to practice this internal fire ritual; one is mindful eating and the other during meditation.

Let Divine Will Power your Life Performance – by Laurie Seymour

My personal will has always been strong.

That sounds like a good thing, right? Of course it was useful. It took me through being the youngest (by far) in my graduate school program. That was a big thing when I was started leading personal growth workshops at 24. It took me hitchhiking solo across Canada and into dark alleys in Athens (searching for the restaurant my friend told me I had to experience). It was the juice that got me to speak in front of hundreds of people, though I would have been waaay more comfortable having an intimate dinner with close friends.

From 1980 through 2010 I established a unique career niche that powerfully combined my Mythic inclinations with the fields of Human Services, Education and Entertainment. At its height I was proclaimed a Human Services Superhero by NJN Job-force and you could listen to me pontificate on various topics in mall-kiosks throughout the Garden State.

Stoke the Embers – by Bob Rush


I have been all over the map lately. Off into the weeds, off into the ethers, and sometimes just plain off. There are so many things that I want to accomplish yet, I feel stuck in reaching my goals. I am truly blessed, yet find myself wanting more. Not material things, but rather intellectual and spiritual fulfillment. Sounds lofty but it truly is where my head is at. Some of it is also where I am at in my journey in this incarnation. Its about stoking the fire that resides within. It is the motivator, the focal point and the reason for my being. Fire is life, fire is power and fire is like a fuel that keeps me on track.

Fire: The Gift of Life – By Sara Jane


One of the 4 Elements, Represented by the Salamander
.
When you think of fire, what comes to mind?
.
A roaring log fire that keeps you warm in the winter. The flames of a bar-b-que cooking meat and vegetables on a summer’s afternoon or evening.  A house or forest fire causing destruction in its wake.

The Fire Inside – by Linda Lang


You know what it’s like when you get that spark… the one that opens up the gate of inspiration.  You step into a place of what seems like endless flow.  When in a moment, you have a flash of brilliance, a surge of powerful emotion, and the energy of creation.  What if?

How to free yourself from performance anxiety – by Annie Gelfand


As a child, math was one of those subjects that made me totally freeze. It may as well have been in a foreign language. The teacher would call out my name to give an answer and my mind would just go ‘deer in headlights’ blank. No matter how hard I tried, I just could not access what they were talking about.

Baptism by Being Fired – by Annette Rochelle Aben


Ever been fired from a job?  I was, twice.  Both times were when I worked in media. The first time, I was shattered, as I had never been fired from anything, not even a babysitting job, in my life. In fact, I went on a week-long drunk. Ah yes, during the first couple hours, I was so hot, I called the vocational school from which I had graduated, and pretty much told them all to go straight to hell! Naturally, I had consumed a massive quantity of “fire water” prior to dialing that phone. Let’s face it, I believed that this was the worst thing that could have ever happened to me and I was seeing RED!

Fact or Fiction? The Legend of the Squonk – by Hercules Invictus


When my wife Athena and I first moved to Pennsylvania in late 2003, one of our earliest projects was to research the folklore creatures and paranormal entities that were rumored to haunt our new home state. As students of folklore, urban legends and living myths, it behooved us to be armed with whatever scant knowledge we could gather before seeking out, or even having chance encounters with anything anomalous. Our run-ins with the looming shades of New Jersey taught us some valuable lessons regarding the virtues of being prepared and remaining forever vigilant.
One of the first native ‘uniques’ we found reference to was the Squonk, an elusive weeping entity that haunted the once-proud hemlock forests of northern Pennsylvania during the heyday of the region’s logging industry.

The Spiritual Path of Entrepreneurship – by Flora Elmore


Being an entrepreneur is a spiritual calling that will quickly get you very clear about what you value most about your life.  Most people think that entrepreneurs go into business for themselves to make loads of money.   The fact is that it takes extreme amounts of discipline, leadership, and commitment to a bigger vision to be successful in the world of self-employment.

Fictional Character – by Annette Rochelle Aben


Some people believe that fiction is the opposite of fact. If we are to get to heart of a matter or learn the truth, then fiction holds little or no value. Yet, what can appear to be fictitious, may be someone’s way of stating what they wish were fact. For example, when you ask someone how they feel and their response is, “I feel great!” They may not really feel great, in fact, they may be in tremendous pain. However, they wish to convince themselves that they DO feel great so they tell you that is how they feel. They may also not wish to discuss their pain, so they head that potential discussion off at the pass. But is their statement really fiction? Could it be that they are merely attempting to create a more pleasurable reality by stating that which they wish were a fact?

Summer Breeze ~ Breathe – by Angela Horne


I slowly opened my eyes this morning to the sun peeking in low in the east, glaring into the bedroom. Ah yes, I remember today is going to be very warm today. The warmest day yet this year and it only mid May.  I roll over and start to make my way out of bed, a little voice whispers, “Walk, let’s go for a walk”.  “Okay then, walk it is”, I reply. Let’s go outside and greet the day.

Walk, What did you say? – by Marie Pollnow


Immediately when I thought of the subject “walk” I think of the Pantera song.  I can’t help it.  This song has always fired me up whether chilling at the end of the day, driving or teaching an exercise class.  I mean, “What did you say?”  [Pantera Walk Song].
