Conversations About Sex: Own Your Pleasure

0

Pleasure was once elusive to me. It was a grand idea that was described by some cheesy, misrepresented, overtly romanticized scene in a television show or a paragraph in a book. Growing up as a Malay Muslim in Singapore, I was taught to believe that sex is something that happened to you only if you could earn great love. In order to earn this love, I was to behave a certain way – an obedient daughter who was religiously pious; and who could roll spring rolls like a machine and make fragrant tea for our visitors at home. I should…

THE LAND THAT IS MANHATTAN: “The Landkeepers of Manhattan”, part 2

0

PART TWO: THE LANDKEEPERS According to Algonquin scholar Evan Pritchard, the Landkeepers are spirits who made a covenant with the land towards the end of their long and well-lived human lives. They were exceptional people who had evolved sufficiently to no longer incarnate on the earth plane but who voluntarily stuck around to be guardians. They chose to remain on the second level of existence, which is closest to the physical level we are familiar with. The veil between those two levels is porous. Although non-physical, the Landkeepers can often be seen by psychics, Native and non-Native alike, and usually…

In his fascinating book, Treasure Hunt: Follow Your Inner Clues to Find True Success, Rizwan Virk looks at the origin of intuitive clues from two different perspectives, the spiritual and the scientific. The spiritual perspective says many of the intuitive clues we get in life are set up for us in advance and are there to remind us of the life we were meant to live. In this second excerpt, Riz explores the scientific viewpoint, one that involves quantum physics… One of my favorite scenarios related to communication with the future is from the sci-fi/horror director John Carpenter, in the…

Red-Hot Holy F*cking Rage Running Through Our Veins

0

Red-hot holy f*cking rage running through my veins, seething from my pores and leeching out from deep inside my bones. Ancient holy f*cking rage I’d carried for my ancestors, carried for my sisters, and now carry for the inner child peering out my eye sockets at the sh*t storm of a world we’ve created for ourselves. What spark lit this torch of rage inside of me? Before my first cup of coffee, I read headlines of war, destruction, and violence; viewed images of horror, families and animals displaced by natural disasters and saw photos of our earth torched, leveled, and raped. Then, as…

The Only Thing that Matters

0

Sometimes it’s not the path you veer from, but the terrain of the path itself, that makes it impossible to stay on your feet. Your path is your guideline.  You get distracted and move off your path for periods of time.  Then you return to it and follow your life’s goals.  What happens, though, when the path itself changes through no choice, or action, of your own and sends you a different way? A normal happy existence can be shadowed by underlying events.  Childhood trauma is often buried until a person develops the tools they need to face it.  Available…

Dinner with a Stranger

0

It had been years since Shya and I had eaten at an Ollie’s Noodle House. In the 80s and 90s we used to go to Manhattan’s Upper West Side to eat there. In those days we would make a special trip to have General Tso’s chicken or jumbo shrimp, a crunchy fried delight with a semi–sweet hot sauce, on a bed of bright green broccoli. Sometimes we would even bring Shya’s parents there, when they were still alive, to celebrate special occasions. Eventually that restaurant closed its doors and our lives moved on. At the beginning of 2014, as if…

As the autumn sets in, one can hear the melodious footsteps of festivals approaching in almost every part of the world. India is called the land of festivals, hence, the footsteps are loud and knocking is fiery. There is a festival on every spiritual significant day. The intention set forth by ancestors was to make life a celebration. This month, it is Diwali in India. One of the most popular festivals celebrated by not only Hindus but Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists too. To be honest, everyone in India, irrespective of their religion, celebrates it with their own little or grandeur…

Reincarnation, Past Lives and the In-Between

In his fascinating book, Treasure Hunt: Follow Your Inner Clues to Find True Success, Rizwan Virk looks at the origin of intuitive clues from two different perspectives, the spiritual and the scientific. In this excerpt he looks at the spiritual perspective, which says many of the intuitive clues we get in life are set up for us in advance and are there to remind us of the life we were meant to live. In some Buddhist traditions, the process of incarnating requires crossing the “River of Forgetfulness,” where we forget all about our past lives and the intent, mission,…

Snacking Tips That Will Fuel Your Growing Child’s Day

0

Snacking is an activity that can play an important role in childhood nutrition. Two factors that should be considered when providing snacks are the types of snacks offered and the timing. A structured snacking schedule will help a child manage his/her hunger and satiety between meals, preventing him/her from overeating at larger meals.  In addition, healthful snacks can provide a nutritional boost containing vitamins and minerals.  On the other hand, unhealthy and continuous snacking habits can contribute to weight gain, leading to childhood overweight and obesity. As a parent, it may be challenging to select healthful food options due to the large variety of…
