Having just moved house and being in the process of setting up the rooms, this quote by Rumer Godden jumped out at me: “Everyone is a house with four rooms: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Unless we go into every room every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.”
“To love is to recognize yourself in another.” — Eckhart Tolle.
As we leave behind the season’s holiday festivities, it can be all too easy to quickly re-immerse ourselves into the fast pace of our everyday lives. Creating sacred time and space helps us to manage the stresses of life and keep us balanced mentally, emotionally and physically.
We’re moving. Physics tells us that the Earth and everything on her is in a constant state of motion. The shift in dimension the Earth and her inhabitants are experiencing at this time is not measured by scientific formulae but by more subtle human experiences.
“You only live once.” These were the parting words of a friend as we ended a conversation and headed our separate ways. As I continued on my path, I mulled over his sentiment. Do we really only live once?
One of the things I love about living in a foreign country is learning more about the cultural significance of the routines of daily life, as well as the meanings of festivities and ceremonies.
When I heard Vietnam had just launched its first Bitcoin exchange, it prompted me to think about our current global economic system and how it fails to meet the needs of the vast majority of people on the planet. Many analysts in the financial market as well as observers from the metaphysical and spiritual domains insist there needs to be a global overhaul of the economic structure. Perhaps Bitcoin offers a viable option in the exchange-for-value system.
I was recently asked to provide healing to animals, wild animals nonetheless! I’m not a veterinarian or a zoologist and I doubt the horsemanship training I did at summer camp eons ago would serve me much now. So, why was I asked to help with the animals? Holistic health care is becoming more and more mainstream, and many people do not view it as exclusive to humans.
Glancing through last month’s issue of Word, I was inspired by its feature on music. I immediately thought of the Fibonacci Sequence, the seemingly magical fractal equation that can be found in compositions throughout nature, art and music. The spiraling pattern created by the sequence can be observed in the smallest to the largest objects in the natural world.
When things get a little crazy many of us search our external environment for an explanation. Sometimes we’re so blindsided we have no idea where to look to figure out the turn of events.
