“Rare is birth as a human being. Hard is the life of mortals. Do not let slip this opportunity.” ~ Dhammapada
The soul is involved in a process of alchemy, to allow us to see ourselves as expanded beings with limitless power. In the mind, we plant seeds for the creation of our future flowering from fourth-dimension into three-dimensional material reality...
Editor's Note from David Starlight: We are not here to play small. It is by being co-creating Gods and Goddesses that we become our wonderful destiny. The following are key understandings to liberate us from limitation, and open ourselves to the magical world of possibility that can begin with a feeling, a thought, an intention that opens up a doorway into the creative forces of the universe. In the journey of the soul, there are seven keys to awakening.

Each morning, right after the sunrise, I started my journey into the unknown. I felt the weight of the backpack on my shoulders and the fresh morning air on my face. I didn’t know where I was going to sleep in the evening, which villages and cities I was going to discover or what kind of people I was going to meet...
Editor's Note from Natalie Jovanic: My worries have often been the greatest obstacles in realizing my dreams. The different scenarios about what might happen ran through my head, and I became stuck. How about you? Fanny's articles describes beautifully how to overcome worries and move forward. Some dreams are so big that we can't accomplish them in a day, they require that we let go of our worries and trust that the solution will always show up. Read this article and find out how you can do it. Your dreams will come true!

Where do I begin in describing my accolades for “Women Who Run With the Wolves”? And more so, how it has enlightened my healing journey? As a Wild Woman who relates personally to the stories and messages in this book and Psychologist deeply interested in other’s growth and healing, I come at this review from an interconnection of both personal and professional. “Women Who Run With the Wolves” combines the infinite wisdom of stories passed along from generation to generation with the brilliant interpretation and sharing of Clarissa Pinkoka Estes, Ph.D....

Now in step 10, co-creation really kicks in so that we may manifest all that we need to serve the world in a practical, Earthly way. The realization that comes with this step is that spirituality and Earthly life are not two separate things.

“Someone once asked me, 'Why do you always insist on taking the hard road?'
I replied, 'Why do you assume I see two roads?'”...
Editor's Note from Karen Adler: I came to see Depression/Anxiety as a place - a town along the journey of my life, somewhere I used to live for a period of my life after my mother died. It's a place I refuse to take up residence in ever again. Art therapy and writing help me veer clear and take another road. Read Part 1: Giving Sorrow Words : Writing and Depression.

I first studied Tibetan Buddhism in college decades ago, inspired (and intimidated) by the lengthy vows (18 root and 46 secondary) that Mahayana disciples took to release themselves from the cycles of karma (samsara) and dedicate their lives to attaining enlightenment (nirvana) so that they could help others on the Bodhisattva path...
Editor's Note: For many yoga practitioners, yoga goes well beyond the 6'x2' mat of a 6:00pm -7:30pm Tuesday night yoga class. The author of this article has an amazing and interesting history with yoga. As you get to know her (she's an instructor, book author and yoga studio owner in Tokyo, Japan), you will see what a wonderful journey she's embarked upon thus far. Her journey is inspirational, encouraging and uplifting. In this piece, she discusses finding the ancient Mahayana Buddhism from the Lotus Sutra as a road map for her life. "These 'Six Perfections' are innate human qualities that form a blueprint for living a virtuous life and transcending one’s karma."

I came to China with the intention of learning Tai Chi as well as the more internal alchemical principles of Chi Kung. I've ended up sometimes feeling I'm on a wild goose chase, yet it's mostly been both exhilarating and rewarding...
Editor's Note from David Arenson: Coming to China was taking a different path. The road diverted and at the fork, I took the “road less travelled.” Instead of suppressing my dreams, I stepped forward right into them. What is it inside a person that inspires him/her to take a different path?
My journey in China continues with a study of Tai Chi at China Wudang Kungfu Academy at the foot of the famous Wudangshan mountains, source of Taoism.
