Insights on Contemplation

Expecting the Best

Garden BuddhaLIANNE SNOW: I think that this business of expectations creating our reality is comforting somehow. It means to me that perhaps I expect nothing from the world but much from me and my responses to the world. Read more >>>

The Benefits of Going Deep

Wide ReceiverBRENT MARCHANT: Most of us are probably familiar with the football term 'going deep', but it’s a notion that can be applied in more than a sports context; it can be employed as a metaphysical practice for personal growth as well. So what does it mean? Read more >>>

Hope Blossoms

Pear Tree BlossomsMARI SELBY: This is a story of survival and two fruit trees. One is a Callery Pear and the other is a Japanese Cherry. Both are survivors of man-made disasters. They radiate beauty in both their endurance and in their ability to give us hope. Read more >>>

Beauty is an Experience

Street Art RORY KELLY CONNOR: We cannot truly know beauty until we use all of our senses to find the truth of something. Then, and only then, can we know it, know if it is in fact beautiful to us individually – versus beautiful because someone else has convinced us that we should think or feel it is beauty-ful... Read more >>>

The Flow of Time

I can see myself sometimes as a single drop of water, clear and beautiful when it gurgles up from the source, guided by choices to the vast oceanic oneness.”

River Flowing between two forested mountainsLIANNE SNOW: Over time, the flow of life will guide every drop of water to the ocean. Every life will return to the vast oneness where individual water droplets will seem inconsequential anymore compared to the awesome power of one. Put like that, I take comfort in the miracle of my journey.

Daring to Step Out of the Chrysalis

Part III - The Butterfly Effect

Blue, brown and white butterfly in flightMARI SELBY: With the crow and crone calling encouragement saying, “It’s time Eve! It’s time for you to make a change.” To demonstrate her point the crone transformed into what Eve saw as an angel. Read more >>>

Daring to Step Out of Our Chrysalis

Part II

Talking Raven on Barbed wire fenceMARI SELBY: Where does it say that Angels are always beautiful, kind, and ethereal? Angels take human form. Our true friends emerge as the angels we need in that exact moment. Read more >>>

Daring to Step Out of Our Chrysalis

Part 1

Crow orange skyMARI SELBY: Taking the first step out of your chrysalis is a heroic act, a leap into freedom. Risk failure in plain view of those who wait on the sidelines safe in their cocoons. Read more >>>

Only ESSENCE survives Transformation

Green and red bird on snowy branchADRIANA STORY-HILL: I want to suggest that in everyday life, Transformation is a Universal Law. We go on our quests and like to think we are designing journeys of special destinations, but in truth Nature works quietly and with no announcement or special fanfare. Read more >>>

Adding Value: Raising Someone's Stock

Pretty Girl with pierced lower lipLIANNE SNOW: When something appreciates, it increases in value. Perhaps then when I show appreciation to someone, I in some way, add value to them. Read more >>>

Autumn ~ Another Word for Letting Go

Watercolour painting of fall foliage along a riverMARI SELBY: Do you think a leaf ponders what it means to let go of the branch? Or is the process for them similar to when we can let go of someone’s hand? Suddenly they aren’t there - suddenly the leaf is falling? Read more >>>

Journey from Attachment to Worthiness

Smiling Little Girl with her hands on her faceADRIANA STORY HILL: Poverty in my family in a rather poor Eastern European country, was a legacy we had inherited. And yet, even as a small child I can recall the sense that there was choice regarding this outlook. I could see the range in the small village of people who, despite the circumstances carried themselves with dignity. Read more >>>

Listen to the Whisper of Your Heart

The Self Care Evolution Series 

Body, Mind, Spirit - ChakrasTRACI TRIMBLE: Why is it that many of us search everywhere else but within for the answers to our challenges? Instead, we listen to friends, family and even strangers. We often neglect the most influential and important voice ~ our own heart whispering to us. Read more >>>

Cultivating Balance...One Small Thing at a Time

The Self Care Evolution Series

Body - Mind - Spirit - ChakrasTRACI TRIMBLE: Balance is not a given. You don’t just get there and then get to stay. It is an always evolving work in progress. It is the journey that we have all agreed to embark on. It is our path and our destiny. Read more >>>

Committing to Living with Principles

Monk Drinking Tea - Watercolour

MARI SELBY: Thich Nhat Hahn teaches, that the principles and practice of being mindful is a commitment to walk in the world fully present. “Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves - slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment. Only this moment is life.” Read more >>>

Passion, A Different Take

Pond with green lily pads and one frogSALLIE FELTON: When you read the word PASSION what comes to mind? Do you think of two lovers locked in a 'passionate' kiss or is it love making…hot and steamy? Does it take your breath away? For me, passion conjures up a cellular burning. A love from the inner most depths of my soul is the easiest way to put it. Read more >>>

Practicing Perception

Kittens on Striped BackgroundLIANNE SNOW: I want my world to be rich for everyone. Is it rich in diversity. Does it provide me opportunities to experience the complexity of the physical world? Most importantly does it reinforce my values of beauty as inspiration?  Read more >>>

Reborn and Moving Forward

Person - arms raised silouetted against orange sunset skyLIANNE SNOW: I am surrounded now by people who see the possibility of our humanity being reborn into a symbiotic existence. They envision a shared world in which we waste nothing and live enriched lives outside of a profit driven model. Read more >>>

Giving into Change

Dalmation Dog with thought bubble - thinking of what he'd look like without spots

JANICE CHRYSLER: There will always be those who do not 'get' what we are doing or why we think the way we do and we need to understand. That's okay.
Read more >>>

Heart Meditation

the beginning to becoming love

Man and Woman Meditating with smokey heart between themJANICE CHRYSLER: Perhaps the reason we use the word love so much is because we long for it so greatly. We are born knowing that we require unconditional love in order to survive. Our parents and caregivers are the first humans that we rely on to provide us with this type of environment in which to grow. Read more >>>

The Season of Reflection

Man's face reflected in mirrorJANICE CHRYSLER: Now is the time to begin manifesting what you desire in your life. You cannot change the past but you can learn from it. By doing so, you help yourself lay plans for the future; not with worry but positive desires and strategies. Read more >>>

Revisiting Bliss

Bliss as a stillness of mind in which the universe cannot help but roll at your feet. ~ Deepak Chopra

The Universe - darkness - lights and moonsLIANNE SNOW: I am content to allow the universe to reveal itself to me. Deepak Chopra speaks of this. He describes Bliss as a stillness of mind in which the universe cannot help but roll at your feet. Read more >>>

Where was I?

 Blank Multiple Sign PostLIANNE SNOW: "Where was I?" is a question that's been coming up over and over in the last few years. It implies that I got lost. Clearly I am somewhere but like any path that has detour options (and non options) we can meander far and wide. Read more >>>

Blessings in Disguise

Finding the first and last relationship in Stillness.
LIANNE SNOW: Stopping the World Article Icon was a phrase that we heard over and over. It was the holy grail of our Psychology of Mysticism class when I was in my second year university. Read more >>>
Tapping Into the Quiet Power of Stillness
BRENT MARCHANT: Article Icon In a world as busy as ours is today, with its myriad elements competing for our attention at seemingly every turn, stillness often seems like a rare commodity. The distractions that pervade our existence make the pursuit of this elusive state of mind quite a challenge indeed. Read more >>>
A Place Called Stillness
"There is a place within my soul
A sacred space I long to go
Where I unite with love sublime
Becoming one with the Divine." Read more >>>
Moment of Death
VICKY ANDERSON: Article Icon At the Moment of Death, you are instantly surrounded by high consciousness. At that same Moment, your Self is suddenly moving all around.

Celebrating the Mothers
MARI SELBY: Article Icon What comes to mind when you think of Mother? The woman who gave birth to you? Mother Earth? A woman who nurtured and cared for you, like a teacher, a grandmother or a nanny? Or perhaps your mom was your 2nd father, as is true in gay male households? Read more >>>

MARI SELBY: Article Icon It's tricky to know whether or not we are headed in the right direction because we don't always 'know' what's right for us. Read more >>>

Who am I talking to? Myself.
PAUL CLARK: Article Icon One recent morning I was grappling with my existence, my purpose for being here. Wondering who I am. What I am. I was later explaining this to someone at lunch and at one point I intolerantly said out loud with my hands gesturing wide up in the air, "Ok, oh great grand Universe, who am I and what am I doing here?" Read more >>>
Headed in the Right Direction ~ Part II
MARI SELBY: Article Icon It's the middle of your day; do you hear your magnificent life calling you? Life is more than paying the bills, managing a job, surviving your family. You are a magnificent being with a fulfilling life before you. Are you settling for what you think you can have rather than what you fully deserve? Read more >>>
Headed in the Right Direction ~ Part 1
MARI SELBY: Article Icon Digging out my car is finished. The sidewalks are clear, but the roads are still treacherous. There is nowhere to go, so I sit by my office window and contemplate one hundred year old pine trees, their branches bent with snow. Read more >>>
Hope has a Hole in It!
MARY GIUFFRE: Article Icon I'm not a big fan of HOPE. I can feel you shutting down, but hear me out. Read more >>>

On Not Being Busy
HEATHER PARDON: Article Icon Have you ever listened to yourself and counted how many times in a given day you utter the words "I'm so busy! I'm too busy! I'm crazy busy!" or any variation thereof?

Letting Go of Worry
MIKE ROBBINS: Article Icon How often do you find yourself worrying these days? When I was a kid my mom used to say to me, "95% of what we worry about never happens."
