Owl Medicine: The Divine Feminine



Last night I heard the return of our neighborhood owl. She was softly hooting from a rooftop (or nearby tree, it was difficult to discern). But she reminded me somehow to relax, trust and allow the awarenesses and healings that are gently occurring now.



Here is one of my favorite takes on Owl Medicine: The Divine Feminine

Our Inner Artist





I loved this article today from DailyOm on creativity. It reminds me that even when I am feeling low on energy or spirit, tapping into my own creativity can bring back a connection to myself and Spirit, and can flourish through even a simple poem or sketch. It can also be found in a silly dance to a favorite song on the radio! Here's to the creative selves.

Cosmic Rays really DO hit Earth

Antarctica - Unusual Cosmic Ray energy pattern discovered in ice in Antarctica

I posted a picture recently in my photo space of cosmic rays hitting earth. At the time, however, I did not know that there was literal physical proof of such phenomena. How exciting that not only is there proof, it is also a physical phenomena studied on-goingly by scientists today. An interesting…

Zen Celebration

When thousands and thousands of people around the earth are celebrating, singing, dancing, ecstatic, drunk with the divine, there is no possibility of any global suicide. With such festivity and with such laughter, with such sanity and health, with such naturalness and spontaneity, how can there be a war?... Life has been given to you to create, and to rejoice, and to celebrate. When you cry and weep, when you are miserable, you are alone. When you…

Monastery Life - A Buddhist Joke!!

Monastery Life

A young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to helping the other monks in copying the old canons and laws by hand.



He notices, however, that all of the monks are copying from copies, not from the original manuscript. So, the new monk goes to the head abbot to question this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the first copy, it…

Open Your Mind - from Dr. Wayne Dyer

Open Your Mind

Having a mind that is open to everything and attached to nothing sounds easy until you think about how much conditioning has taken place in your life, and how many of your current thoughts were influenced by geography, the religious beliefs of your ancestors, the color of your skin, the shape of your eyes, the political…

Paradoxes and struggles

I'm hoping someone can help and I apologise in advance because although

I don't want to dwell on negatives, I need to find positive solutions.



This is the paradox that has blighted my 2010 thus far.

* The more I have faith, the more it is tested

* The more I try and use LoA & my gifts for good, the more I suffer harm, lonliness and misery

* The more I forgive and let go, the more others do that demand forgiveness



Several folk told me that 2010 was… Continue

From "A Course In Miracles"

"You can speak from the spirit or from the ego, as you choose. If you speak

from spirit you have chosen to "Be still and know that I am God". These

words are inspired because they reflect knowledge. If you speak from the ego

you are disclaiming knowledge instead of…

And at my departing.

Shamatha-Vipashyana:It's Our Original Nature

Shamatha-Vipashyana: It's Our Original Nature

By Gaylon Ferguson

In the tradition of the buddhadharma that traveled from ancient India to Tibet (and, more recently, to various points west), the two main kinds of meditation practiced are shamatha (peaceful or calm abiding) and vipashyana (insight). These are two different but complementary types of training and a doctrinal description of what is completely natural to us: our innate…

Everyone is beautiful.....

It's surprising how many persons go through life without ever recognizing that their feelings toward other people are largely determined by their feelings toward themselves, and if you're not comfortable within yourself, you can't be comfortable with others.

From "A Course In Miracles"

"Consciousness, the level of perception, was the first split introduced into

the mind after the separation, making the mind a perceiver rather than a

creator. Consciousness is correctly identified as the domain of the ego. The

ego is a wrong-minded attempt to perceive yourself as you wish to be, rather

than as you are. Yet you can know yourself only as you are, because that is

all you can be sure of. Everything else is open to…
