We are born of the Earth, neither of the East nor of the West.
Wisdom is everlasting, never-ending and always changing. The wisdom of the ages is to be cherished and venerated, yet if we cannot filter it through our own internal resources, then we can be easily misled...
Editor's Note from David Arenson: What did the Buddha mean by the “middle path” and how is it relevant to our living philosophy? How can we incorporate "balance" into the rhythms of daily life? How can we understand and reframe the Eastern versus the Western approaches for spiritual evolution in a modern context? What is the purpose of our life within a framework of "dharma?" If every person sang their song as Divine particles and instruments of God, the universe would vibrate ecstatically. Imagine this world – or better, create it.

Editor´s Note from Julia Sanfilippo: A must-read for any athlete! This article explains the physiology of activity and rest, and the importance of giving your body the time and resources to recover from a strenuous workout.

Editor's Note from Marie' Sakai: There is a certain type of artwork that embodies both the concepts of traditional painting while at the same time embodies the current art concepts of graffiti artwork on the body. Since the beginning of time, art has been rendered through looking at the human figure, now for the first time art is not only being drawn on a person, but then photographed to keep its timelessness. Some body artists talk about the ideas of traditional values and ceremonial meanings for each symbol that is painted on the human being. In this trailer, you will discover the inexhaustable resources that art can be and the healing of the artwork itself that lends itself to a new era that is dawning in the art world, The World of Body Paint.
