Staying Grounded during the Holidays

The Holidays are officially upon us! - you can see it everywhere already. And with them come both the wonders and the challenges that can make it easy to lose our footing where our Serenity (and sometimes our sanity) is concerned. Here's a great piece on Grounding: Being a Strong Container for our Spirits - perfect as the holiday season begins to unfold.



Being a Strong Container

Grounding Ourselves



When we are grounded, we… Continue

Walking with Awareness



Mindful Walking



While walking, each step we take can lead us to becoming more mindful of ourselves and our feelings.



Many of us take the benefits of walking for granted. Each day we limit the steps we take by driving or sitting for long periods of time. But walking even a few blocks a day has unlimited benefits – not only for our health, but our spirit as well, for as we walk, we connect with the earth.…

Everyday Joy Practice

From The Secret Daily Teachings -



Every day, or at the very least once or twice a week, take a few minutes and focus on seeing yourself in joy. Feel yourself in joy. Imagine only joy ahead in your life and see yourself basking in it. As you do this the Universe will move all people, circumstances, and events to bring you that joy. You can't be in joy if you have money worries, or health worries, or relationship… Continue

Thanksgiving Week



I lived in NYC many years ago and have always loved the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. I worked in a restaurant just across the street from where they would blow the big balloons up with helium the night before. It was always a festive and energized night on the upper west side of Manhattan. So much fun.



Around here in Colorado, many people have already put up their Christmas… Continue

People who challenge us



The Kaleidoscope of Life

Living Together Differently



Life has its way of bringing us into contact with people who challenge us with their differences.

In a world of dualities, we have trouble defining ourselves without something opposite, and can't discover who we are.





We tend to gravitate toward people who are the most like us, at least in the ways that make us feel comfortable. But life has its way of… Continue

Are you looking for me


Are you looking for me? I am in the next seat.
My shoulder is against yours.
You will not find me in stupas, not in Indian shrine
Rooms, nor in synagogues,
nor in cathedrals:
Not in masses, nor kirtans, not in legs
winding
Around your own neck, nor in eating nothing but
Vegetables.

Times of Great Change

During times of great change it’s important to remember that we all chose to be here at this time to experience change.



We are living in a time of great change. Many thinkers and seers agree that humanity and the planet Earth are evolving at a quickened pace, and that this evolution will necessarily be severe and seemingly chaotic at times. It is natural for people to react with fear, because these changes…

How to Stop Worrying and Love the World

How to Stop Worrying and Love the World



"... The kind of people who lead the way to real solutions aren’t worriers. They have looked at a bad situation, felt the pain, and moved on to creative answers."



We live in times when it seems like a duty to be worried. Two wars, global warming, an out of control oil spill. More than…

The Simple State



There is a state of non-suffering inside you; it is simple and open to awareness. By contrast, the state of suffering is complicated because, in its attempts to wrestle with pain, the ego refuses to see that the answer could be as simple as simply learning to be. Any steps that get you to stop clinging to complications will bring you closer to the simple state of healing. Complications occur as thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and subtle energies,…

the difference between judgements and opinions

Judgment Versus Opinion



Most of us think of judgements as negative. However, they may be there to help us.

For example, we may meet someone new and suppress a negative feeling about them, thinking that we don't want to fall into the trap of being judgmental. Later, though, it may turn out that paying attention to that thought could have helped us…

The Body Brilliant: Getting back to who you really are



To accept that God has given each of us a magnificent role to play on Earth merely because we’re human; that we were born with a perfect script etched on our hearts; that it’s not to our personal credit, but to His greater glory, that each of us is brilliant—such are the truths that free us from the ego’s lies.



Mystical understanding is a ray of light, God’s kiss that transforms us back into who we truly are. Each of us can put down the… Continue

Being Who You Are

It's difficult to try to be what you are not. Being what you are doesn't require any effort. When you become wise, you accept yourself the way you are, and the complete acceptance of yourself becomes the complete acceptance of everyone else.

I enjoyed reading this today. Especially for the sensitive soul, it is always important to take the time we need for ourselves to reflect, heal, process, integrate, rest or rejuvinate. Taking time for reflection...
