What is our true nature?
We come to experience wholeness by opening ourselves, revealing the flower within. Let peace begin with me.
Transformation starts with looking in the mirror at the self. It can be no other way. Simply put, taking responsibility for everything that appears in one's life, is the starting point...
Editor's Note from David Arenson: What is our true nature? Zen teaches us acceptance of all that is. In this acceptance, we allow ourselves to be compassionate for all things. When we feel lost,” our soul has not gone off track. It's more likely that we are totally on course and coming closer than ever to personal transformation. We come to experience wholeness by opening ourselves - “As you live deeper in the heart, the mirror gets clearer and cleaner” (Rumi) Our true nature is infinity.

Wholistic Gaia science is not only a foundational world view for the investigation of "the details of how all organisms exchange gases and other chemical compounds with the water, atmosphere and soils of Earth." But, from a cultural standpoint, what I am seeing is that Gaia is also a foundation for a planetary religion, a benevolent new way of living with and revering the Earth. Gaia shows us the way to create evolutionary new habitats so that we have not only the scientific technology, but the philosophy to peacefully penetrate deeper into the mysteries of the Universe using both science and art.
Editor's Note from Sandra Miniere: Today one of my clients was struggling with forgiving and letting go of her grievances against herself,her two ex-husbands and her parents. She reminded me that forgiveness is a challenge worth tackling because it affects your state of inner peace and outer abundance. This short inspirational video describes the benefits of giving up grievances so you can have harmony in your life. The insights, music and pictures are enlightening. Enjoy!

When we look back on the past – whether just yesterday or many years ago, sometimes we think, "I wish I knew then what I know now."
To help find peace of mind in the present, try working with that wish in your journaling practice. Go back to that previous time for a dialog with your younger self...

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: How a child comes into the world impacts the totality of a lifespan. Midwives are one of the most natural, organic choices that can add peace and a natural state to the labor of a woman and the birth of a child.

Buckle up! The week unfolds like a roller coaster and you’ll need your safety gear in place to handle the ups and downs: One minute you’re climbing to the top, and the next, you’re flying high, screaming your head off at the all-too-quick descent, and then very next moment, you’re sinking low, so low you’re doubtful you will ever see the top again. And so go the regular routines of daily life in a world already punctuated by extremes. It’s hard to say what the wisest course through the excitement will be. Certain situations could inspire participation—you’ll want to take a stand for what you believe in. But other situations might be best served by bearing witness and holding a non-reactive perspective that has the power to calm, soothe, and encourage peace...

Since my book about healing from a panic disorder has been published, I've tried to stay focused on all the positive feedback I've been getting. But when one reviewer called me "likeable if rather self-involved," her words hit home...
Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Like Priscilla I believe it is necessary to be "self-involved" to find inner peace. Inner peace only comes from exactly that - your innards! Also, our author states here that meditation isn't always "fun, glamorous or intellectually stimulating." Oooo, how those of us who practice can relate to that one. Many times it is the greatest and heaviest work we can do... and eventually the most rewarding.
