In the Mayan religion, the serpent symbolically represents the seven powers of light, energies distributed throughout the body as a gift of the Giver of Movement and Measure, Hunab K'u (the Creator). The seven powers combined and awakened form a circuit of energy focused through the crown of the head to join in the Dance and Flow of energies of the Creator.… Continue

“How do you Know when you’re Angry?” I ask the 15 “at-risk teens” sitting in a circle at 8:30 a.m. . I go around the room, one at a time.
“My heart races”, “my fists clench”, “I get hot”.
“Good. These are your Early Warning Signals. When you can identify the signal of your anger before it comes out of your mouth you have a chance to change your behavior.”
“Let’s do the breathing. Inhale, two three Pause Three heartbeats, Exhale, two,… Continue

HAVANA — Former President Jimmy Carter planned to meet with Cuban dissidents early Wednesday following two days of talks with President Raul Castro, other government officials and religious leaders in a trip he hopes will boost strained U.S.-Cuban relations.
Speculation about the three-day trip has focused on whether he will leave with imprisoned U.S. contractor Alan Gross, who was recently sentenced to 15 years in prison after being convicted of illegally importing communications… Continue

In order to survive the next 100 years, we must come to realize, the fittest among us are, in fact, the wisest. We simply can no longer make it on physical brawn and Nationalistic might. Through our amazing, innovative technologies a global world was birthed; each country collectively interdependent upon the whole, entwined in a delicate balance of commerce, ingenuity and connectedness. Isn’t it, then, rather ludicrous that we would even consider investing our precious resources and lives in… Continue

The Peacemaker Within
Nurture the Peacekeeper through World Vision Walks
Thich Nhat Hanh’s Annual PeaceWalk & LWF’s “Walk Across the World”
by Michele D’Arbanville
The moment I stepped into the street at 6th and MacArther in downtown Los Angeles with Thich Nhat Hanh on his annual Peace Walk, I experienced a deep sense of belonging; a oneness with all who seek to transcend the boundaries of racial and social injustice and an awareness of our… Continue

Could it be that the world relies on humans to think clearly - and in harmony - for its survival? The Global Consciousness Project (GCP) at Princeton University just may prove that the Morphogenetic Field Theory is more than pseudoscience. Based on a hypothesis developed by English scientist Rupert Sheldrake, which was influenced by Carl Jung's controversial theory of the Collective Unconscious, the GCP aims to prove that all of mankind is connected… Continue

THE Cherokee say that “our first teacher is our own heart,” but unfortunately our western science has rewarded that teacher with very few apples.
Mainstream medicine still looks at the heart as only a mechanical pump.
That view is beginning to change. The Medical Community is being challenged to expand its thinking about human biology, health, and wellness.
Leading-edge research in holistic medicine, biophysics, bioenergetics, and frontier biology all… Continue

The whole life of these trees is to serve.
With their leaves, flowers, fruits, branches,
roots, shade, fragrance, sap, bark, wood,
and finally even their ashes and coal,
they exist for the purpose of others.
~ Srimad Bhagavatam
One of my favorite memories growing up occurred when I was about 8 years old. I had just climbed up to the very top of the tall tree in our front yard one day — when a… Continue

“THE PAST, the Present, and the Future are, in the esoteric philosophy, a compound time,” wrote Helena Blavatsky, “for the three are a composite number only in relation to the phenomenal plane—but in the realm of noumena have no abstract validity.”
Our generally accepted worldview of duration and time “are all derived from our sensations according to the laws of Association,” explained Blavatsky.
And according to a precept in the Buddhist Prasanga-Madhyamika… Continue

EVERY organ and cell in the body has a field, by which it mysteriously networks with every other organ and cell. The heart and gut talk to the brain. And the brain’s holographic networks are due to the noetic fields of its cells and neurons.
The Field is the underlying mechanism of healing, of thought transference, gene behavior, and the way the environment influences us — it is the real “secret” behind the power of intention.…

THESE ARE transformational times, and new orders of thought based on ancient verities are seen flowering once more.
A growing number of New Thought leaders are fostering a welcome shift in human consciousness.
It is a revolutionary shift. The seeds of change evident throughout the 20th Century, and now in the 21st, were sown in the 19th—sparked by the Theosophical Movement.…

Helena Blavatsky was the first to refer to nature spirits as elementals.
“Some classes of elementals… have an intelligence of their own and a character…”
“A plant can be receptive or non-receptive, though every plant without an exception feels and has a consciousness of its own. But besides the latter, every plant—from the gigantic tree down to the minutest fern or blade of grass—has, Occultism teaches us, an Elemental entity of which it is the outward… Continue
