Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: Rupert Spira inspires us to look at meditation a little bit differently. He defines it as knowingly being the presence of awareness. Robert explains so clearly how thought, our thoughts, create the "separate self" or our identity with the body-mind. This is a great segment for those interested in differentiating between the identities and stories created by the mind and true consciousness.
Editor's Note: Rodney Smith (c. 1947) was a hospice caregiver for a number of years, and is currently an author and the guiding teacher of the Seattle Insight Meditation Society, an organization he founded in 1993. Smith was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan and drafted during the Vietnam War, serving in Belgium as a medic. He returned home and became a social worker, when one evening he attended a lecture by Ram Dass in Cincinnati, Ohio that made him inspect his life more deeply—becoming a vegetarian and doing meditation...

Can something as profound as metaphysics reach a point where it will cease to exist?
To answer that, you have to understand the definition of the word metaphysics...
Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: "The unknown will have become the known, and our appreciation of the works of the Creator will have grown along with this expanded knowledge." These are the words of author Owen Waters. In this insightful article, Owen shares how the concepts such as auras and consciousness used to be labeled "metaphysical" or "beyond physics." However, with all of the scientific evidence proving energy, electromagnetic fields, etc. there is no more "beyond physics." This wonderful articles explains how we've bridged the gap from "metaphysics" to "expanded physics." Read and learn from Owen Waters about consciousness and where we're going as a collective.

Attack lines. Sounds inviting, doesn’t it? When you are the owner of attack lines in your hands, you are internalizing your own anger and directing it at some part of your self – and thus, some part of your life...
Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Did you know that 30% of your cerebral cortex - the area of your brain that plays a key role in memory, attention, perceptual awareness, thought, language, as well as consciousness - is dedicated to processing information from your hands? Scientific hand analysis interprets what's energetically happening with your mind/body/spirit connection via the study the hand's topography.

The less you experience your separateness, the appearance of a defined self, the more readily consciousness pours anywhere attention goes. It comes with the territory. The less defended you are, the less attached to an identity, or to your own history or longings, the more you experience directly what’s going on “out there.” Because it is no longer other...
Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: How do we avoid getting swept up in the suffering in the world? Can we approach our own struggles without resistance and judgment? Can moving beyond the idea of separateness assist in bringing wholeness to our lives and the global community?

Looking over old journals as I cull experiential material for a new book, I am reminded just how many of my big experiences of inner and other worlds have taken place in a liminal state of consciousness, on the cusp between sleep and waking...
Editor's Note: In this article Robert Moss shares ways to shift from the waking state into a lucid dream state. This is an effective way to learn to dream consciously, and I have found it to be quite valuable as a dreaming practice.

I don’t know when we Westerns forgot that we come back to Earth in many incarnations. Just think of it: Since we are part of Mother Earth (‘from dust to dust’), then we are bound to live according to Her laws. These cosmic laws or archetypes give form to our lives and are the terms and structures of our initiation into consciousness here on Earth...
