Now, to the question. Genpo Roshi really is a genius in creating this process, since people have meditated for decades to have a glimpse of this experience, much less to be firmly established in it all the time. He cautions people who have this experience, however, that without a daily practice, without doing something to help stabilize it, it will just end up being an amazing experience you “had.” He mentions a few ways to stabilize the experience. One would be traditional meditation, another would be more Big Mind.

For yoga luminary, meditation teacher, and artist Elena Brower, the answer has always been close at hand. “Whenever I’ve needed direction, strength, or centering, I’ve so often turned to my own journals.

I tried her approach, and it didn’t work for me. Sometimes I can be a jerk, and not apologizing didn’t feel right. Besides, I’ve had male managers—well, one at least—who apologized to me upon occasion and that endeared me to him. It made me work harder and trust him more. Couldn’t the same happen with those who worked with me? Couldn’t a heartfelt apology heighten their trust?

Hence the question: How do you connect with nature? What do you appreciate about it? Eco awareness is an attitude; while it’s easiest to appreciate our natural environment in scenic settings, even city dwellers can appreciate the natural world. Perhaps it’s the cardinal that chirps outside your window or the wind that caresses your face as you bike commute. Or, maybe it’s the budding leaves on the trees as spring approaches.
Do you compare yourself to others? I used to compare myself to everybody. I realized that this obsession was a symptom of low self-confidence and poor self-esteem. Today I’ll share some thoughts about the danger of comparing yourself to others.

A Soul Tribe is exactly as it sounds, it is a group (quite large) of souls, living in human bodies or not, that energetically come from the same place that you do. This means that they have lived very similar soul paths to yours, and have most likely been present in most of your past lives. Just as we are humanly inclined to group together with likeminded individuals, we are also so inclined on a soul level. As we progress down our soul paths, through lifetimes, we find that it is best to learn and grow among the familiar energy of certain others.
Be the kind of parent you wished you’d had in high school. Now’s your chance to act on all those mental notes from your teen years. C’mon, you know what I’m talking about. They all started with “If I ever have kids, I swear I will never ______.” Or “When I’m a parent I will let my kids ________ .” OK, maybe all those things you wished your parents had done or not done don’t seem like such great ideas now that you’ve got teens, but maybe there are a few items in the areas of trust, understanding and respect that you’d like to incorporate into your parenting skill-set. What are you waiting for?
Your sense of “I” (or “ego”) is the center of your universe. It is there, in some form or another, behind all your thoughts, emotions, memories, and perceptions. Yet we are not clear about what this “I” is – about who we truly are, in essence – and confuse it with our body, our mind, our roles, our labels. It’s the biggest mystery in our lives.

In the affairs of the world after the dangerous disruptions and earthquakes in Haiti America moved its military in to secure the country and administer aid. While significant humanitarian assistance is one of the primary aims (How to complete repairs and restore order after the earthquake has completed its damage), there are also other fascinating implications. The image fire beneath the dangerous water opens us to another consideration. Along earthquake fault lines like the one in Haiti, are usually great reserves of oil rising from beneath the tectonic plates. Haiti is potentially sitting on one of the greatest oil reserves in the world. If this is so, it will change the course of history. It would imply that the world is not at or even near the end of its oils reserves!
