Spiritual Unite: Higher Realms Of Existence – A New Energy Coming

In total, there are twelve realms of existence or dimensions of consciousness. Most of the time, we are only really concerned with our physical world  but there are higher realms of existence that we encounter during our journeys. So let’s take a look at those higher realms of existence and how they differ from the 3D world we experience

Daily Good: Unity and the Power of Love

“Unity holds the essential vision that we are one living, interconnected ecosystem — a living Earth that supports and nourishes all of its inhabitants. If we acknowledge and honor this simple reality, we can begin to participate in the vital work of healing our fractured and divisive world and embrace a consciousness of oneness that is our human heritage. This is the opportunity that is being offered to us, even as its dark twin is constellating the dynamics of nationalism, tribalism, isolationism, and all the other regressive forces that express ‘me’ rather than ‘we.'” Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee shares more in this thoughtful essay.

Elephant Journal: Enlightenment doesn’t Care how you Get There.

Some years back, I came across a most empowering gem that gave me permission to expand.
It’s from the spiritual author, Thaddeus Golas:
“Enlightenment doesn’t care how you get there.”

This bit of wisdom profoundly changed my relationship with a well-worn spiritual path.

MNN: This Snail Wrangler will make you love snails

If we’re lucky, we find a passion in life — something that endlessly interests us and about which we care about deeply. Marla Coppolino is such a fortuitous person: Snails are her passion.
It started early — she was just 7 years old when she found tiny land snails in the backyard of her New Jersey home. “Some of them were not much bigger than a pin head — they were teeny-tiny. I

EarthSky News: Find Hercules between 2 bright stars

Tonight, try locating one of the coolest constellations up there. The constellation Hercules the Kneeling Giant can be seen ascending in the east-northeast on these Northern Hemisphere spring evenings. You can find Hercules between two brilliant stars: Arcturus and Vega. The chart at the top of this post shows the sky for around 9 to 10 p.m. local time (10 to 11 p.m. Daylight Time), when the constellation Hercules, and the two stars so essential for finding it, are well up in the northeastern to eastern sky.

Patheos-Pagan: Wicca: Not as Stupid as You Think

I think it was Jason Mankey, quoting his wife, who quipped that, “Hating Wicca is the new black.” Between the latest incarnation of Wicca vs. Traditional Witchcraft (minus the sassiness of Cochrane and Valiente that originally made it interesting) and “Wiccanate” privilege, the Wiccan heyday seems to be over.

Inner Journey:

SPIRITUAL PATHWAYS

“In any way that men love me in that same way they find my love: for many are the paths of men, but they all in the end come to me.”
— Song of God, Bhagavad Gita

Spirit – the life force – exists in everything. It follows, then, that ANY path, any encounter is spiritual if we have the awareness to see it as such. Going deeper, going higher, emptying, connecting, believing or disbelieving, bouncing off the bottom,experiencing the heights, in pain, in ecstasy ….

Too often, we search afar for our own purpose when it is in our lives all the time, waiting for us to express it more openly. Bring greater awareness to each encounter and situation in life. Tune in to what you are inspired to do, who you are inspired tobe. Your answers are waiting for you to pay attention – every moment!

“…focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.”
— Greg Anderson

Today’s Recipe: Glazed Pomegranate Pork Ribs

I came up with this recipe when I was actually craving a tart apple pork dish, but had no apples. Luckily, we have an abundance of pomegranates sitting around, so pomegranate pork was to be made. I can now report that this has my tart apple pork beat.

Laughter

“Laughter is the lightning rod of play, the eroticism of conversation.” -Eva Hoffman

Look in any women’s magazine and you’ll find some sort of survey that ranks “sense of humor” as one of the most attractive qualities in a person. We love to laugh, and we love people who can make us laugh! Laughter builds wonderful connections between us. We let down our guard and allow ourselves to just enjoy the moment.
