“You only lose what you cling to.” ~ Gautama Buddha

Stop clinging and there, you'll have your solution. Simple.

In relationships, not so simple...

 

Editor's Note from David Arenson: We love outrageously. We'll do anything to keep a connection - we're so afraid of losing love. Relationships always hold up a mirror to what is real and waiting to be addressed, felt, acknowledged. As needy and complex beings, relationships are the field in which we express our neuroses. The Buddha didn't reach enlightenment within a relationship, so perfection does not exist in relationships. To develop better relationships, we can find solutions in Tibetan Buddhism and the practice of Bodhisattva.

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...

 

Meditation


by Helen Nieves, LMHC, ADC-C

I found another poem written by an unknown author. This poem is called Letting Go Takes Love. This poem is about letting go of things that we find difficult to let go of. Often, many clients ask me “how do I let go of things?”  It is difficult to do so, but accepting what you can and cannot change helps to acknowledge the truth of a situation making it easier to let go of things...

 

Editor's Note from Tiffany Ip: Letting go can be the hardest thing to do. Our emotions, more often than not, cloud our logic. But we do have to realize that letting go does not mean giving up. It sounds like we are admitting defeat when we decide to detach ourselves from long-held goals or some relationships we have been desperately held on to. It is, however, a matter of acknowledging the truth. If you find yourself being stuck in a position that makes you depressed and forbids all other opportunities in life, it is time to learn the art of letting go.

Interviewed by Allysyn Kiplinger

ATH Editor of Cosmology

Betty-Ann Kissilove

Here’s a great example of one woman’s artistic expression of the new cosmology. I first met Betty-Ann at a retreat about the new cosmology with Dr. Brian Swimme in California in 1999. Her playful wit and intense curiosity about the nature of the universe are beautifully presented in her new book called “Great Ball of Fire! A Poetic Telling of the Universe Story” (Mearth Press, 2010). I was recently able to speak with her about this newly published epic poem, as well as inquire about her inspiration and her thoughts about cosmology...

When I say love, I am not only talking about the biological elements that cause chemical attractions, what has been called the "science of love" such as the study of dopamine and pheromones, the physiological components to mating. But I am also concerned with the metaphysical components of lovemaking, the poetics of the science of love. This poetics not only connects one’s lover in a mind, body and soul with the other, but also to the cosmos, biosphere and noosphere giving us a profound meaning for union.


by Sheri Ritchlin

The universe itself—sun, moon, stars, planets and "all things under heaven"—comes to us with a numinous quality and awakens us in our inmost depths with the tenderness of a lover. We think of it as something infinitely larger than ourselves, whether we receive it as beauty, a dazzling light, Nirvana, or the presence of God.
