Greetings!

This is a beautiful time of the year to walk in the woods such as the image above. The trails around my area/home are like this except for more deadfall and more pine trees. The exquisite sunlit oranges and yellows make an ordinary stroll magical. This is not the time for power walking, moving because "you should," or for even counting steps. It is the time to enjoy being alive, letting go of all the striving to be somewhere or that more-fit someone else. It is the time to breathe in the fleeting beauty of this season, the waning warmth, and to feel the softness of the moss and leaf-lined path beneath your feet. Take time to reclaim time--and space--for your inner Self.

In wellness,

Silence and the Unitive Experience
By Christina Donnell, Ph.D.

THERE IS AN unseemly coarseness and tumult to our times which robs the grace from the fabric of our interrelatedness. At first, it sounds completely naïve to suggest that now might be the time to embark on the ancient journey from separation to union, the journey from our own Self back to a state of Oneness. Yet that is exactly the claim that this article explores. It is a call to a deeper spiritual consciousness by which awareness becomes 'centerless' and the dichotomy of I-Other is transcended.
     Much of what is noisy about our times is we are beholden to surface reality - Facebook, Twitter, news feeds, texting, busy daily life. Abandoning the surface of things takes something more than curiosity or a need for depth or solitude, it is to risk being moved: moved from the person we were to the person we may become.

Awakened Happiness
By Chrism

To be happy is to experience love. To feel loved and to express love for there is no other reason or cause for it to exist. Happiness is a quality of love and its reflection and expression define our relationship to ourselves and our environment and to each other.

The foundation for all matter is love-for all spirit and for all consciousness and for all physical expression. It is the only expression. All life and all existence are a condition of this happy principle. As we are behind the veil and as the forces of life and the stresses of civilization interrupt our vision, we experience love and happiness through a very limited range. Yet even in our blindness and hardships, love is a beacon that will illuminate our path of joy and happiness, if we will only choose to acknowledge its force and live by its integrity. READ MORE>>
