by Jelaila Starr

For those on the spiritual path who have made the decision to ascend along with Mother Earth to the 5th dimension, they at some point come to understand what ascension entails. They realize that it means clearing their emotional blocks and taking the denser energies contained in each and transmuting those energies into compassion...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: The meditation practice that I teach is all about learning to be your true and authentic self. And, when we cut through all the bs and lofty words, it's just about being real... whatever that is to you and how it changes and fluctuates with each new day. I'm going to post several articles about being yourself... how powerful it is... the challenges of it and the fears we sometimes must face. Our author here shares her personal story and advice.



by Pat Black

Do you know people who have graduated from college or university only to get into the “real world” and find themselves lost? I knew a guy with a photographic memory who could rifle through pages and chapters of a book in 10 minutes and be done with it...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: The author writes about having a vocation that sparks and thrills you. I wanted to include this article on the meditation page as I believe that sitting in quiet is one of the primary ways to discover the essence of who you are and what you are here to do. When Pat speaks about "answering the call" and "finding your true gifts," many of us don't know where to start to discover these aspects of ourselves. Meditation can help you pinpoint  - as all of the answers are within. I speak from profound experience and am incredibly grateful for my practice and all it has done to help me unlock my essence, passions and path!



by Chakra: Vortex of Light

This meditation can be done very quickly or you can spend some time focusing on each color. You will want to have pencil and paper handy to use following your meditation to write down any impressions you received. This meditation can strengthen each chakra center by visualizing its vibratory color...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: For those not familiar with the chakras, they are defined as wheels, or vortexes of energy. There are seven primary chakras that flow through the human energetic system. It is through these seven energy centers that it is believed that vitality pulses throughout our system energizing many of our physical, emotional and mental states. There is lots of literature on chakra models, philosophy and lore that link to many philosophical systems and spiritual energy practices, religious observance and personal discipline.


by Ted Karam

In times of challenge, I find myself returning again and again to this simple truth – that nothing real can be threatened, that nothing unreal exists...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: It takes true strength to look at your life from an inward perspective. It is sometimes the hardest job on the planet yet at heart, the easiest. And, don't get me wrong... there are many parts of life that I feel I have a gracious handle on from an inward perspective. However, I have one very big aspect of my life that continuously challenges me for more... more... MORE... uggg... yay... uggg!!! So, let me take this moment to be grateful and to ask one of Ted's questions to myself... "What is the best, most empowering story that I can tell myself about my particular situation right now?" Love it! Read more...

What is unfolding when nothing much of anything is going on with you?

I encourage you to check out for yourself what is going on at such times. For most of us, usually it is thinking. Thinking is going on. It takes lots of different forms...




by Dr. C. George Boeree

Many teachers make an attempt at teaching their students to think, but eventually conclude that only a small portion of them have any potential for it. After looking carefully -- phenomenologically -- at the act of thinking, I have come to believe that their despair is rooted in a misconception: They see thinking as something that happens only in our heads. It is this limitation that in turn limits their view of their students' potentials.


Editor's Note by Eden Kozlowski: This is fun. In this article Dr. Boerre focuses on thinking and taking it outside of the box - the box being our minds. He also talks about feeling being so connected with thinking. As a meditator who attempts non-thinking, it just makes it clearer to me why emotions are such a part of meditation...they are additional "thoughts" that also need to be let go.

by Ken McLeod

When a new real estate broker asked an experienced agent what the three most important things to keep in mind were, the agent replied, “Location, location, location...


Editor's Note from David Pratt: These 11 short points help us see clearly what meditation is not and what assumptions many people may have about meditation and mindfulness. Ken McLeod highlights these misconceptions, (drawn from the book "Mindfulness in Plain English, by Ven. Gunaratana.) and then offers his own observations about each one. The article is short and particularly helpful to those who wonder, "What is meditation?" and also for those who have been practicing for years.




Editor's Note: This video is a beautiful window into what an actual Breema class is like. You get to hear instructors formulating about Breema's practical philosophy and see the mutually-supportive partner bodywork and Self-Breema exercises - and it all takes just 3 minutes. If you've been wondering what this Art of Being Present is all about, here is the perfect introduction.




Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: A short and sweet video via Andy Puddicombe's company Headspace. Andy is a former Buddhist monk whom The Times of London deemed “Britain’s top meditation guru.”



from wikiHow

Meditation is a mental discipline by which one attempts to get beyond the conditioned, thinking mind into a deeper state of relaxation or awareness. There are many different meditation methods. At the core of meditation is the goal to focus and eventually quiet your mind. As you progress, you will find that you can meditate anywhere and at any time, accessing an inner calm no matter what's going on around you. But first, you have to learn to tame your mind...

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson


by Dennis Hunter

"...We modern people have become tragically disembodied, alienated from the most basic level of our own experience as human beings.... Most of us have lost the felt sense of what it is to be embodied, to experience the world in and through the medium of this material and energetic body into which we have been born..."


Editor's Note: As Dennis points out in this great column, it's very easy to live our lives "above the neck." The body, however, always lives in the present.
