mindbodygreen: The Spiritual Benefit Of Travel & How To Find It Without Leaving Home

When you ask people why they travel, the responses are usually quite similar: a desire for adventure, a chance to experience new places and cultures, a breakaway from the routine. But sometimes you hear an answer that goes deeper than that one that highlights another, more profound aspect of traveling that not everyone is talking about: the fact that travel is a profoundly spiritual experience.

Spirit Library: When you don’t feel so positive…

While we always encourage positive thinking and ask you to focus on what you wish to create in your life, we know that there are times when you feel lost in a dark emotional storm.

While we always encourage positive thinking and ask you to focus on what you wish to create in your life, we know that there are times when you feel lost in a dark emotional storm. There are times when you are overcome with grief, times when anger from the past comes uncorked, and times when you feel possessed by jealousy, insecurity, or doubt.

Patheos-Pagan: Healing the Witch’s Heart

Break-up’s are a common human experience and they completely suck. Whatever the specific circumstances are, going through the loss of a relationship is a grieving process. And just like the grieving process we experience after the death of a loved one, we go through stages of denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. We vacillate through these stages while we adapt to our new lives without our partner(s

Inner Journey: To Support Or Not

It is not helpful to help a friend by putting coins in his pockets when he has got holes in his pockets.”
— Douglas Hurd

Are you struggling financially because you are helping another adult who is being irresponsible around money?

Without intending to do so, we can keep people dependent when we are willing to financially rescue them. Enablers typically feel it’s their duty to help out. They may see giving money as an expression of love. Unfortunately, they may lose their own financial security as a result.

As hard as it may be to do, the solution may lie in forcing the dependent to find his or her own way financially. In this case, it’s not selfish to not lend a hand — it actually serves the highest interests of all. Learning personal responsibility can be a tough road but it’s a necessary one for empowerment.

“Few things help an individual more than to place responsibility upon them and to let them know that you trust them.”
— Booker T. Washington

Peace

“Love is not a doctrine. Peace is not an international agreement. Love and Peace are beings who live as possibilities in us.” ~Mary Caroline Richards, (Centering, 1964)

This time of year, and particularly this year, I find myself thinking more about peace, and about peace on earth. If we are correct, and it all begins with each of us, then it is more important than ever to find peace within ourselves. We all know how to find that peace through our spiritual practices. So, practice, practice, practice! And then bring that beautiful peace out into the world where it is so needed.

MNN: These sweet dogs are full of life lessons

Vegemite is a 7-year-old Japanese Chin and Pekingese mix who lost his eye when he was attacked by another dog. He had emergency surgery, but his eye couldn’t be saved.

The loss didn’t do anything to damper the pup’s upbeat personality, says photographer Alex Cearns, who was so enamored with Vegemite, above, she made him the cover boy of her book, “Perfect Imperfection.”
