So far on the path, there has been a gradual development of insight and letting go of everything you once thought of as “me.” You began in a small way, looking at body sensations and thoughts and seeing them clearly as different but interdependent phenomena that aren’t really “me” (physio-cognitive stage). You then experienced rapturous joy and peak experiences as everything arose and passed away on its own (A&P), and then sunk down into the lowest lows as you discovered that nothing lasts and nothing can really be held onto (Dark Night)...


Editor's Note: In Part 6 of our series on the classical stages of enlightenment, Hawaii-based meditation teacher Ron Crouch describes the insight knowledge called Cessation. This culminating insight is the yogi's first true taste of Nirvana/Nibbana itself. Go to Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5.




Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: How do you deal with tough work challenges? Can you rise above, be honest/real, compassionate? There are some good ideas presented in this video as well as how to deal with anger and blame.

You need to watch out for this one, you REALLY must, because the angry head monster is a really nasty one. It's responsible for so much suffering in the world... along with its close cousin, the hate monster...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: See Part 1 - Worry Monster and Part 2 - The Hanging Judge.





Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Are you sure of who you are? Awesome recording from Ester and Abraham.



by Ryan Ginn

As I sit in meditation in the morning... I look out my window which captures a panorama of the heart of the community: the central garden, the community building, the chicken coops, the bathhouse and a cascade of to do’s and anxieties often flood me...

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: My favorite line from Ryan's article, "Human beings have the magical powers to turn any situation into a circus of craziness." True, right?




Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: OMG, so many awesome videos out there that are just getting me all choked up. Watch.. sniffle... feel good!



by Ian Lawton

If you are what you eat, you should definitely avoid chopped liver, waffles and all forms of nuts. Yet we are... what we eat, just as we are what we think. We eat our choices, we live our intentions, and we create our futures with each thought, word and meal...


Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Love this article. Mindfully eating and gratitude can bring so much more to the table.



by Egbert Sukop

Unless people discover the unadulterated joy of giving money to a stranger without hesitation and devoid of the slightest motive of exchange ("What's in it for me?"), they will hardly be able to receive money from strangers free of emotional complications. Don't even expect to hear a 'thank you', a friendly smile, or a nod...


Editor's Note from J. Stewart Dixon: "Here is an exercise that may change your world. Once a day, give a single dollar bill to a person you have never met, to a stranger." In the truest spirit of holiday giving I present to you this written meditation/article on money by a fellow from my neck of the woods named Egbert Sukop. I call this article a meditation because it is best to set aside some time, take a few breaths, uncross your legs and relax before you read it- you will get a lot more out of it. This article is NOT a run of the mill newage-ism about "The Secret" or "Law of Attraction" or "Abundance" In my opinion what Mr. Sukop has written here goes well beyond these ideas.  GREAT GREAT gem here if you really soak it in...  Here's Part TWO below.  See Part 1




Editor's Note from J. Stewart Dixon: Tony Parsons...the great destroyer. I love Tony's direct, non-apologetic, take it or leave it style here. There is no individual that gets enlightened.  There is no enlightenment.  There is only deconstruction and the failure to arrive at "enlightenment" In this destruction and failure the one behind the personal "I"-dentity is discovered.




Editor's note from J. Stewart Dixon: BLUE COLLAR SPIRITUALITY: Unmani
This is a series of articles/videos I will be presenting here at ATH that I will call BLUE COLLAR SPIRITUALITY: 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 life is an optical illusion of consciousness” ~Albert Einstein

What is consciousness? Consciousness is perception; what you are aware of. Both imagination and reality depend on where you allow consciousness to dwell.


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Stillness is indeed sublime. Good article if you like reading about the expanded dimensions of reality.




Editor's Note from J. Stewart Dixon: HAPPY BOMBS!  I first saw this video about 20 years ago at the Potomac, MD Adi Da ashram house. I'll never forget this line: "We're happy when we're sad. We're always feeling bad."  It was then I finally came around to understanding ego. The "villians" kick in @ 2:30 and really give this classic cartoon it's perennial wisdom quality.   This is a great holiday video about the battle of "light over dark" in the hearts of us silly humans. Enjoy...

Mixing the Mind (Part 1 of 3)

by Michael Erlewine

Learning meditation is hard because it can be boring. Like trying to thread a needle, there is no easy way to do it except to do it. For starters, you have to learn to focus and concentrate. Often the breath is what we concentrate on, but here is the problem...
