What It Means to Be Awake

0

Awakening is the result of any process that lets Spirit 
emanate out of our being into the world. During one summer, I was staying in a lodge near the foot of the Rocky Mountains. Every morning I’d stroll along the path behind the lodge, watching the tufts of grass stretch to meet the dew. The sun hitting the wet grass seemed an illumination. In that crisp early light, I was reminded that everything in life has an inner quality that emanates from its center. That emanation of life-force coming out of everything is Spirit. And the sensation of that…

The Message of Helping Hands

0

I hope the three short experiences I am about to relate will inspire you as they did me. As you’ll see, the message they carry is powerful enough to bring even physical healing. One morning on a busy street in Manhattan, New York City, I was moving furniture out of our apartment into a rented cargo van.  I was struggling with a 5-drawer metal filing cabinet when a well-dressed man of Latino decent stopped, put down his briefcase, and helped me lift the file cabinet into the van. He gave me a smile, I thanked him, and he cheerily walked away.…

Evolving Love, Evolving Us!

0

Love has evolved over centuries from the time the human embarked on his journey on this planet. From procreation as the only purpose, love was just a release of dopamine and oxytocin for a large period of time.  Marriage was not love till centuries. It was more of an arrangement between families and individuals for wealth, reputation and preserving lineage. The purpose of marriage was the creation of heirs. The word matrimony comes from the Latin word matrimonium, which is derived from mater (mother). This is still prevalent in some countries and sects. The enigmatic Love I feel that the generation before me…

Spiritual Telepathy

0

In experiments dating back to the nineteenth century, scientists have validated two types of telepathy: instinctual, or feeling-based telepathy and mental, or mind-to-mind, telepathy. According to the Wisdom teachings, there is also another, higher type of telepathy called soul-to-soul, or spiritual telepathy. Spiritual telepathy allows us to directly access the wisdom and guidance of our own souls. This advanced form of intuitive perception is often called the higher correspondence to our personal intuition. Our personal intuition provides us with guidance about our work, our relationships, and other aspects of our day-to-day lives. The soul knows our higher purpose; it is…

A Match Made in Heaven Starts With You

0

An Excerpt from How to Have A Match Made in Heaven: A Transformational Approach to Dating, Relating and Marriage In order to build a strong foundation for relationship, you must first investigate your relationship with yourself. If you are unkind to yourself, you will ultimately be unkind to anyone who forms a partnership with you. When you connect with another, he or she becomes an extension of you. Ultimately, you will pick on that person in the same manner that you pick on yourself. At first, you may only be critical of him or her in your thoughts. But soon,…

Cancer – just the mention itself gives an anxious feeling in the stomach. Every year, it takes millions of lives into its claws. Going through the treatment itself is one hell of an experience.

SPIRITUAL ACTIVISM: Nurturing the Warrior of the Sacred

“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature”     – Joseph Campbell In our first ‘meeting’, we talked about the current Spiritual Revolution of the Divine Feminine that we are facing, and what it means to us both as individuals and as children of our Mother Earth. We talked about our tender initiation as Warriors of the Sacred. Then the road ahead that has two legs; the inner work that reclaims our bodies and our power, and the wise action in the world that is born of…

0

February has lots of exciting transits, including two eclipses. During the eclipse season, things get a little crazy. It is a time where we can be unaware of things happening. Things happen behind our back. The eclipses also bring hidden things to light. Suddenly we become aware of things that we haven’t been aware of before.  First is the Lunar eclipse on February 11th.  Then there is the Solar eclipse on February 26th. Essentially, the eclipse period is all of February with a little bit into March. For the entire eclipse period, we are prone to its effects.  Also happening…

WHAT IS ”ADVENTURE”?

0

I recently read Into Thin Air, a highly acclaimed, riveting, and non-fiction book about a disastrous Mount Everest climb. After finishing the book, I wondered why a tragic story felt so adventurous.  Several expedition members—both highly accomplished and amateur climbers—died on the ascent and it was clearly a traumatic event for the author.  So much about the story struck me as heroic and foolish at the same time.  This led me to another, much more basic question:  what is adventure?  To find answers, I reached out to a special set of New Yorkers, all of who come to adventure from…
