The Spirituality of A Cat- by Marie Elena


Cats are the most spiritual beings I have ever known. I’ve learned a lot from all of the cats I’ve harbored including my current reincarnate Baby. He comes in the form of a Tabby. What is more spiritual? Cats sleep when they want.  They play when they want. Hunt when they want. They know how Spirit works, those lovely creatures.

Save the Flamingos – by Annette Rochelle Aben


“I’m going to turn your flamingos into vultures for Halloween!”
.
What? Did I hear that right? My wonderful little sister, who bought me the flamingos, so I’d have something cheery to look at when I glanced out my office window, was now going to violate my lovely pink distractions? Horrors!

Zen Hoofprints – Looking To Sweeter Things – by Bob Rush


As another year of my journey is in the books, there are many projects on my mind. They span many subject areas like more time in meditation, more consistent yoga practice, seeking healthier nutrition and the biggie…writing a book. This is , of course, in addition, to doing my best at work and keeping in better touch with family and friends. Seems like a tall and lofty order. The trick here is not to put too much pressure on myself in seeking these goals. Further, said objectives should not be unrealistic. By that I mean like writing my book in one fell swoop. Also, it can lead to frustration. Many a time, have I attempted to learn a skill only to set myself up to fail by not devoting the time, energy and practice needed. I wind up failing then quitting. Goal denied.

Spirituality of A Flower – by Marie Elena


First of all, I have a wide array of beliefs on what spirituality is.  Spirituality is omnipresent. It is everywhere.  t is beautiful. It is joy. It is finding peace. It is allowing healing into your body. Spirituality is a special vibration and it is everywhere. Spirituality can also be found in places we would not think about. It may come in tragedy; 911 comes to mind. It may come in sadness, death or loss. It is always there you must find it.

You can’t change who you are or can you? This is a theme that runs through most people’s lives, myself included. What limits us from being the best person we can be? Why do we need constant reassurance from outside sources? When we will be the best person we can possibly be?

Citizen Ken – by Annette Rochelle Aben


I have a conversation with my dad every Saturday night at six in the evening. This has been going on for years. In fact, my step mother laughs that they could set their watches by my calls. I love it. It makes my week to be able to touch base, find out how he is doing and learn things about him that I never learned while we lived together. Who thinks to do that when you’re growing up anyway? Your parents are busy taking care of you and you are busy making them old before their time.

The Magical Ice Cream Man – by Annette Rochelle Aben


Funny, where I live, we are in the throes of summer, a very hot summer to boot. Hot summers have always conjured up visions of swimming, sun bathing and ice cream! That’s right, when I was younger, you would find me in the pool or laying on a towel baking my body in the direct sunlight (what was I thinking there) and invariably, I ended the day with some sort of ice cream treat.

Being Selfish is Good for You [channeled] – by Marisa Ferrera

If you’re like most people, you’ve been taught that being selfish is bad and means you don’t care about anyone but yourself. This is one of the many lies you’ve been taught. Being selfish does not mean you don’t care about others; it means you understand the importance of taking care of yourself first so that you will have more than enough to give to others.

Sensing the spiritual – by Andreas N. Bjørndal


You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down.

To really appreciate the spiritual world, you need to be able to sense it with your own spiritual sense. This sense needs to be awake and developed to recognize the existence of these realms, a process that goes through stages. Let us examine how you can recognize these stages.

We will start with people that have not yet developed this sense. Many of them are living with a deep conviction that there is nothing but the material world that exists. Their fate in the physical aspects of nature and the rational mind can be so strong that they think any different approach has to be wrong. This kind of fundamentalism is called knowledge fundamentalism or scientism and hides behind claims of facts and evidence, disregarding any possibility of a human soul. Without a soul, there is nothing but anatomy and physiology and little left for the subtle aspects of reality. This attitude is like hiding the head in the sand and saying there is nothing in the world but sand and any claim of fresh air here in the world (sand) is impossible.
