J. Stewart Dixon's All Things Healing www.BLUECOLLAR-ENLIGHTENMENT.com 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...

What makes us human - Is it our intelligence, our physical bodies, our hearts?
No doubt, it is a combination of them all.
United, we share some common denominators – male or female (or something in between) – we all inhabit human bodies with similar functions and needs. Yet, we are way beyond whatever we imagine ourselves to be...
Editor's Note from David Starlight: What's holding you back from giving and receiving love from an open HEART? I've always believed that all healing ultimately comes from God, and it is a process of cleansing away layers of fear and doubt to uncover the perfect soul inside. The soul is already perfect and whole as it is. The fountain of love is within our hearts - listen to the wisdom of the heart, and one gains access to infinite realms of possibility. Then, discover the river of love baby meditation - a magical and alchemical silent open-eyed meditation.

It’s not often that I get an opportunity to really reflect on my entire set of life organization skills. Don’t get me wrong; I compartmentalize aspects of my daily life and work on each one through meditation, faith, and creativity...

Editor's note from J. Stewart Dixon: BLUE COLLAR SPIRITUALITY 4: Rupert Spira
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...
Editor's Note from Lexi Yoga: Studies have shown that it doesn't matter much 'how' you meditate, just as long as you do it regularly. Here is a 30 minute meditation to increase abundance and love into your life. Enjoy!

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?

Although modern yoga practice primarily focuses on the physical practice of postures accompanied by meditation and breathing techniques, traditionally, yoga involved much more than that. For example, Patanjali writes in his ancient text, the Yoga Sutras, that yogic practices are comprised of eight limbs...
Editor's Note: Most modern yoga practitioners learn about the deeper ideas that comprise a traditional yogic practice fairly gradually. Most become familiar with certain principles but still only regularly practice asana (poses), pranayama (breathing), and limited forms of dharana (mantras) or dhyana (meditation). Clearly, restricting our practice to the poses themselves along with some combination of meditation and deep breathing leaves out a great deal of the internal elements of yoga training. To find out the deeper affects of practicing all 8 limbs of yoga, read on!
Editor's Note from J. Stewart Dixon: Therapy or Spirituality? A good question. Where do the two meet, cross or join? Where do they diverge? A good live video explanation from Loch Kelly about the threshold of this intersection.
