Bringing Heaven to Earth: Applying Spiritual Principles Consistently Over Time
I am often asked to explain what I mean by becoming a spiritual scientist - in other words, what's the science part? Because these terms are being bantered about quite liberally these days, I welcome the opportunity to clarify what for me is a simple and profound process.
Becoming a spiritual scientist is a means to an end. The means is the ability to apply spiritual principles consistently overtime. The results are repeatable but not the 'same". I can do something over and over (like practicing a piece on the piano) but because I am always applying what I learned before (hopefully) the piece grows in musicality, depth, mastery and expands my piano playing ability.
The results, when we are applying spiritual principles consistently, must have growth, expansion and a new awareness or revelation. Why? Because the spiritual essence of who you are is new in every moment. When you bring your awareness to that moment, you see with new eyes.
The second question that I am asked often is: Why? or What is the benefit for becoming a spiritual scientist? Is this really going to enhance my life? Make me a happier person? Fulfill me in some way?
Again, great question.
Using my piano playing analogy again? Day in and day out I sat down to practice my scales, my finger exercises and my music pieces. Each day my teacher suggested that I evaluate my practice time - how was today's practice different than yesterdays? Did that section go smoother? Did I correct the mistakes of yesterday? Did I hear something today in that movement that I didn't hear yesterday?
I was being taught observation and awareness. And this repeatable daily practice eventually turned my average piano playing into an award-winning ability. And better than winning an award, I knew the process of learning to play a piano piece well - and that knowing was empowering.
I also expanded in my knowing of myself. I found a well-spring of inner strength and focus; I became intimate with a new space of calm and peace in the face of self-doubt, worry and fear. I pushed through previous places of won't: "I won't do this; I won't go on; I won't know how" and found the authentic "will" empowerment. And I uncovered a fresh place of inner joy, fulfillment, growth and revelation. My life was energized.
I have discovered that using simple spiritual principles of observation, acceptance, forgiveness, compassion and loyalty to the soul daily - over time - open the inner pathways to discover the greater reality. This new discovery expands my ordinary sense abilities into extraordinary multidimensional awareness. My heart not only feels but knows. My mind not only understands but is aware of several levels of information at the same time. And because my energy is not caught up in emotional and mental drama, the cells of my body are shifting?holding more light and more loving.
Any day is a good day to begin finding out for yourself what consistency, focus, choice, and practice can do for your spiritual growth and awareness.
A simple beginning:
Inhale your breath and say inside: "Everything I am seeking is available in this moment. I am what I am seeking." Repeat often.
And so, you begin.

People Fail in Life Because They Do Not Plan
Life is growth. For many people life is like a merry go round.
In life, sooner or later, we come to the midnight hour. The hour comes when all is black, when myriad shapes seem to haunt our paths, when the very blackness appalls and our hearts cry out in utter despair.

Creating Our Own Emotional Chaos
It's amazing how - even when we're working from a "higher vision" - we still see the people, the events and the circumstances in our lives with the same perspective: our own! It's "only human" to always be able to see how right we are in any given situation, and it's always difficult - and sometimes impossible! - to look at ourselves and our actions through the other person's eyes. But if we really want to grow - if we really want to know who we are - then we have to be willing to look at ourselves a little more objectively - a little more realistically - then we're used to doing, and we have to be willing to accept responsibility - both for the way we express ourselves emotionally, and for the effect we have on other people through that expression.

The Centre of Our Existence!
Most of us have heard talk or have read something about the seven centers of energies that we refer to as Chakras. I do believe these are very important centers of our being in terms of our energy field, our aura, and most of all our own balance that can manifest into our physical body.
Why We Choose Our Parents
There is a concept in Jewish mystical thought known as gilgul, which can be translated as reincarnation. Gilgul does not necessarily mean that a soul in its entirety has been reincarnated; it may only be a nitzotz, or spark of a soul, that is reincarnated.

Will the World Really End on December 12, 2012?
I was recently asked how I interpreted the Mayan and Hopi predictions that the world, as we know it, will end on the 21st of December 2012. Would there be global war - possibly triggering a nuclear holocaust? Would the planet's life forms finally succumb to the ecological quagmire that's been building in our soils, oceans and atmosphere? Would the current steady increase of previously unknown diseases overcome our ability to defend against them? Or will we suddenly move into a new Golden Age in which the lion lies down with the lamb and struggle, pain, and suffering are gone forever?This is no small question.
Attachment - Bondage or Moha - Their Role in Gaining Enlightenment
While study and pursuit of the Kundalini is considered part of the 'New Age' repertoire, it's interesting to note that like most things New Age, it's roots are very ancient and actually pervade almost every part of human culture.Everyday we see symbols of the Kundalini all around us, but because few people are aware of the Kundalini and it's impact, almost no one realizes what they are seeing.
