The Power of Namaste
I honestly am not sure why this hit me so strongly, but it did.
"Namastè is a salutation which essentially means that I greet and acknowledge the God-Spirit that resides within you.
"Ram Dass describes it this way [Namastè means] "I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells. I honor the place in you which is of love, of truth, of light, and of peace. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are one."
"This greeting is usually done with a gesture of hands held close to the heart in prayer position. It is a a wonderful way of expressing love and respect for our fellows."
Wouldn't it be absolutely amazing if we could relate to every person who comes into our lives in this way? The old man driving 50 in a 65 zone when you're running late getting your son to baseball practice; the cashier who has obviously not had a good day; the ex-spouse who seems determined to make your road bumpy; the telemarkter who calls in middle of dinner; the Burger King employee who forgot to put your fries in the bag; and on and on and on.
I don't expect myself to be perfect, but I would love to grow in love, compassion, non-judgement and tolerance to the point that I am 'living Namaste'. In this world of fighting, slaughter, lying, cheating, mistrust, disrespect...maybe the way we truly heal a planet and a people is to each grow to 'be Namaste' - one person at a time, one cashier at a time, one 'ex' at a time and one prayer at a time.

Do you realize you are creating your future by the very attitude you posses?Take a look at Proverbs 15:15.

The Kundalini is a pool of energy that lies dormant at the base of the spine and which can be and often is, accessed, allowing the student/victim to use the energy for health, spirituality and creating their life as they were meant to live it.It's my belief that many people have had full or even partial awakenings of their kundalini energy and honestly don't recognize it.

Remote Viewing and the Body-Mind Connection
One of the biggest myths to evolve in the growing annals of new age lore is that psychic ability is the sole province of the mind. Our language reflects it in terms like "mental telepathy" and "mind reading".
There is an inherent generosity in the human spirit to be of help, to be of service to others. What is it that makes us decide to be of service.

Learning the Secret of Contentment (Part 2)
Paul's encouragement to the Philippians is also our encouragement. Consider his afflictions and trials: - I was beaten 5 times by the Jews with a whip- 3 times I was beaten with rods- Once I was stoned- 3 times I was shipwrecked- On many of my missionary journeys, I was in danger from rivers, danger from robbers, dangers from my own people, danger from Gentiles, danger in the city, danger in the wilderness, danger at sea, danger from backstabbers.
I'm at that place in life many refer to as "the dark night of the soul". My husband and I just finished and moved into our dream home.
Living Powerfully in the Present Moment
The time we spend on earth is very short when you consider the scope of the universe. Often, we don't see the big picture and get lost in the details.
Integrity and Spirituality
The concept of integrity has arisen often in discussions of spirituality. What do we mean however when we invoke this concept in this context? What is the role of integrity in spirituality? How will we know it when we encounter it? More importantly what will be the consequence to us if we choose to remain ignorant of its crucial importance as a foundation stone to our spiritual enlightenment? Here I intend to address these questions and to give a fresh perspective on how to achieve what I will define as Spiritual Integrity.
When Goliath Comes
One does not have to live long to realize that along the pilgrim's path are many battles to be fought and enemies to be overcome and we should not be surprised when new trials come our way. It does not matter how victorious we may have been in one battle, we cannot get too comfortable because there will be other combats with other giants.
As we proceed further into the 21st century there is even more of a feeling that humanity as a whole is hearing "a calling". Most of the clients in the realm that talk about this describe it as an "awakening" or experiencing an "enlightenment" or a "need for transformation.
