"The hope that someone or something will save you, that you will not have to make any changes in yourself, that you will not have to be responsible, is unrealistic. The belief that you can stay in patterns of lethargy and unconsciousness, then take something or have something given to you that will transform you without any effort on your part, is sheer folly. It won't happen."

~ The Hathors in the "Great Shift: Co-Creating a New World for 2012 and Beyond"

Mantra involves the rhythmic invocation of a sound. This provides a foundation for the aspirant so that his practice is just not "in the air". This anchor or foundation helps the mind to gradually disconnect with the external experiences provided through the 5 senses, which is the first step to successful meditation...

First you must understand what imagination is. It is condemned very much nowadays. The moment you hear the word "imagine' you will say this is useless, we want something real, not imaginary. But imagination is a reality, it is a capacity, it is a potentiality within you...

Visualize that you are surrounded by all sentient beings, with your mother seated to your left and your father to your right. In front of you, visualize an enemy; someone who dislikes you or wishes you harm. Behind you, place your dearest friend; the person to whom you are most attached. To the side, visualize a stranger; someone for whom your feelings are neutral.


Editor’s Notes: A great line to ponder from this meditation...”An enemy is my greatest need, the source of all beings’ enlightenment, including my own.” Now, go read it all!

Buddhism began by encouraging its practitioners to engage in smrti (sati) or mindfulness, that is, developing a full consciousness of all about you and within you -- whether seated in a special posture, or simply going about one’s life. This is the kind of meditation that Buddha himself engaged in under the bodhi tree, and is referred to in the seventh step of the eightfold path.

The other day I read about a family of six who were wiped out when a truck-driver plowed into their vehicle. He’d allegedly been driving and attempting to look at a laptop screen at the same time.

Not all multitasking is that catastrophic, but nevertheless attempting to juggle too many things in a short space of time is causing us stress, reducing our productivity, and making it harder to maintain focus when we need to.

Editor’s note: Human brains are simply not built for multi-tasking. Bodhipaksa, a Buddhist teacher and author, gives some scientific research to back this and several things you can do to simplify.

"At the end of the day, I can end up just totally wacky, because I've made mountains out of molehills. With meditation, I can keep them as molehills."

Those who face life placidly and harmoniously do so admirably because of their level of deepened spirituality. My favorite, Gandhi was such a one. He said “In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in an clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth.” Those who know the truth have cultivated inner peace...


Editor's Note: Many who teach meditation do so with the hope that it will generate world peace. Sounds lofty, but the truth is that world peace begins with each individual. As Gandhi also said, "We must become the change we want to see in the world."



"Just cause you got the monkey off your back doesn't mean the circus has left town."

WASHINGTON - A new study led by University of Pennsylvania researchers has found a positive relationship between mindfulness training (MT) and improvements in mood and working memory.


Mindfulness is the ability to be aware and attentive of the present moment without emotional reactivity or volatility.


The study saw a high-stress U.S. military group preparing for deployment to Iraq being trained...




Editor's Note from J. Stewart Dixon: Here's a FUNNY FUNNY video by Mike Jenkins about all our neurotic expectations of enlightenment. I chuckled all the way through. I bet you will too...
Mike's website:

J. Stewart Dixon's All Things Healing series: What enlightenment looks like in ORDINARY FOLKS. Many of my spiritually awakened friends and I are in this category.  We do not have the eloquence of Adyashanti, the mass appeal of Eckhart Tolle or the motherly sagacity of Gangaji or Ammachi.  We are ordinary, imperfect and quirky human beings and we are spiritually awake.  This is what enlightenment looks like in ordinary people and dare I say that this is probably what it will look like in YOU...

Human beings are wired to tell stories. Whether we admit it or not we are constantly telling stories about others, ourselves and every situation we enter into...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: I was just talking about this in my Wednesday meditation class... how I want every relationship in my life to be as real and authentic as possible. At this point, I want no more... no less. Then, here's Ryan who has helped start an intentional community in Oregon where this type of real and honest communication is agreed to in a literal, written contract. Amazing. We all need a "Matrix Circle."
