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.

The return of the light, as symbolized by the Christmas story of Mary, Jesus and the gift of the Magi, weaves astrologers into one of the most holy stories of all time...
Editor's Note by Patricia Lantz: The article that follows was is excerpted from a longer article written for The Atlanta Astrologer in December 1997 by my friend Martha Lee Hornberger. Martha Lee, an AIDS hospice nurse, passed away in 1999. She was only 37. I use it here with love and remembrance for a woman who dedicated her too short life to serving those in pain and dying. Martha Lee lived her life with spirit and purpose then passed peacefully knowing that the hands she held out to serve others would forever be on those whose lives she touched.

Being present is immensely worthwhile. It opens you into the truth of life. It opens you into peace, love, truth and Oneness. It releases you from the pain of the past and anxiety about the future. It empowers you to be yourself and express yourself fully...
Editor's Note from J. Stewart Dixon: Here's a quick simple list of suggestions from Leonard Jacobson that will help with your own awakening process. I really like the first suggestion. Awakening does not require perfection. Awakening invites us to embrace and love our IMperfections....our shadow...our wounds...our limitations. It all gets absorbed in loving presence...
Editor's Note from Michael Williams: A couple of years ago, my friend and fellow storyteller Raphael Rodan teamed up with Arjen Barel and Inger Lise Ourlich to found the International School of Storytelling and Peace in Amsterdam. Each year they invite numbers of young people from Israel and Palestine as well as from across Europe to come together to share their stories and to use storytelling and drama to explore conflict resolution. This video gives you an insight into the philosophy and practice of this ground-breaking endeavour. It was filmed, directed and edited by Rodan's storytelling partner Anastasis Sarakatsanos.

A little melt my heart moment the other day that I thought I’d share. We sat at the dinner table to eat. My 16 year old son looking sad and disappointed apologized for burning the bottom of the omelette. His eleven year old sister quickly responded “it’s okay Osh we all learn from our mistakes all the time, I think the food looks great and I really appreciated you making it”...
Editor's Note: We all have moments of not being at peace. Reminders of centering ourselves and being conscious of where our minds are and what we are projecting are certainly helpful in making sure we get back to that peaceful state we all want to operate from.
