The Magician of Lhasa

By David Michie

When novice monk Tenzin Dorje is told by his lama that the Red Army is invading Tibet, his country's darkest moment paradoxically gives him a sense of purpose like no other. He accepts a mission to carry two ancient, secret texts across the Himalayas to safety.

Half a century later, in a paradox of similarly troubling circumstances, Matt Lester is called upon to convey his own particular wisdom as a scientist, when Matt's nanotech project is mysteriously moved from London to a research incubator in Los Angeles.

Tenzin and Matt embark on parallel adventures which have spine-chilling connections. Tenzin's perilous journey through the Himalayas, amid increasing physical hardship and the ever-present horror of Red Army capture, is mirrored by Matt's contemporary, but no less traumatic challenges, as his passionate relationship with his fiancée, Isabella, and his high flying career undergo escalating crises.

It is at the moment when both Tenzin and Matt face catastrophe that their stories converge, spectacularly transforming our understanding of all that has gone before.... Keep Reading

When we think of weeds we usually think of them as something that needs to be removed so plants can grow. But many weeds are actually medicinal and health supporting. One such weed is watercress.

Although watercress is a weed, it’s not just any weed. It’s packed with youth giving antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. This wondrous weed can be found growing alongside streams and riverbeds in nearly every U.S. state..... Keep reading

Abraham On Joy


"Everything exists for joy. There is not one other reason for life than joy. We've got nothing to prove to anyone, because nobody other than All-That-Is is watching. In other words, we're not trying to get brownie points from some other galaxy. We're not trying to get someplace else; we're not trying to get it done, because there is no ending—we cannot get it done. Everything exists for the purpose of joy in the moment." - Abraham, as channeled through Esther Hicks

Coyote America


Coyote America

Coyote America, by Dan Flores

The howl of a coyote at dusk is one of the chief symbols of the American West, but in recent years, we ve been hearing it farther and farther east. Even New York Cityabout as far from the Southwest as one can get, both geographically and figurativelyhas been the site of a rash of coyote sightings for more than a decade. From Central Park to the Aleutian Islands, Los Angeles to Bangor, Maine, coyotes have been found in places they ve never been seen before: one was even discovered riding a commuter train in Oregon.

The coyote, it turns out, loves the American people. This is ironic, given that since the nineteenth century, Americans have been at war with the coyote. Nevertheless, the coyote has not only survived our onslaught, it has thrived, using the streets of our cities as springboards for a takeover of the continent. Dan Flores, acclaimed historian of the American West, charts the species explosive growth not just as a natural phenomenon but a cultural one, with roots in the Native American stories of a trickster god and Warner Brothers depiction of the hapless Wile E. Coyote. The result is an American avatar: the coyote isn t just some very successful dog, it is us....

To Be Held

By Umair Haque

To Be Held

I am never happier than when, like a child, I’m being held. The only real difference between me and you is that having spent years at death’s edge, I’ll gently admit it.

After all, we spend our lives desperately trying not to admit it, don’t we? I did. We are not children, we cry. We are not weak, dependent, needy. We certainly do not need to be held. We are grown ups, we are adults, we are proud and independent and self sufficient. That’s the idea of strength we’ve been taught.

And yet..... Keep Reading

Birdsong: It's More Than Just Music To Your Ears

By Grrl Scientist

Not all birds can sing. The passerines, or songbirds, comprise about half of the world’s 10,000 avian species. They are characterized by their special muscular voice box, the syrinx, which consists of one set of vocal cords located at the top of each lung. Each set of vocal cords is controlled separately, which allows birds to sing two different notes at the same time. Surprisingly, birds can also sing with their beaks closed or while they are eating.... Keep reading

 

What Is So Great About Flow?

By White Feather

What Is So Great About Flow?

Of course you created the game that you are playing. It is a game created by projecting consciousness through the infinite field of possibilities, which can be seen as a holographic template. After going through "The Field" the consciousness manifests as a reality in which the game is played out. The human, which is the player you created to play the game, exists because of the consciousness that you stream through "The Field" into this reality. This flow of consciousness is what keeps the player/human going/moving/living in this reality. As soon as you stop this flow, the human disintegrates and dies. So in order to keep playing the game and experiencing your creation you have got to keep this flow going uninterrupted..... Keep Reading

Somatic Descent: Experiencing the Ultimate Intelligence of the Body

By Reginald A. Ray

Somatic Descent

Most of us sense that our bodies contain uncommon intelligence—we “feel it in our bones” or notice it in our “gut instincts.” But is there something far vaster here waiting to be experienced? With Somatic Descent, you are invited to tune into the natural wisdom of your body, refine and amplify it, and explore it fully.

In this program, pioneering teacher Dr. Reggie Ray presents a fascinating audio program on this rich dimension of Tibetan Buddhism: how to go beyond the veil of the thinking mind to tap the wondrous yet wholly trustworthy domain of your body.

Beyond Basic Mindfulness and into the Empowering Realms of the Soma

For those who've worked with basic breath and body-based meditations, this course will be a revelation: step-by-step guidance into some of the most transformative and powerful experiences charted by Buddhism's vast maps of consciousness.

Drawing on decades of teaching and scholarship, Reggie Ray shares a 13-CD curriculum of practices and insights to access the deepest knowing enfolded in the Soma, the landscape of your physical body and the source of immediate and greatest fulfillment.

With him, you will learn: how your body is a field of infinite wisdom, the origins of somatic descent practices and how they transform us on both the neurological and non-physical levels, many meditations for connecting with and embracing the Soma, and how to integrate these profound changes into your daily life.

HIGHLIGHTS:
• Your body as the field of infinite knowing
• How to explore the wisdom of the Soma
• Yin Breathing, Connecting with the Earth, and many other guided practices
• Over 13 hours of investigation into the somatic dimensions of awakening

Why Children Love Dirt

Why Children Love Dirt

By Monique Rodriquez
It is a question that many parents have asked themselves: "Why does my child love playing with dirt?" One plain and simple answer may be: children love the way dirt smells and feels. Another down to earth answer could be: children play with dirt because as an element very close to the composition of their very own bodies, they are instinctively attracted to it......
