Spirit Library: Mystical Essense & Luminous Realms Of The Soul

Mystical Essense

Your identity is shifting more and more to the soul self as this is the essence that must now guide you forward. As a result, a deep purification process is underway releasing you from chains of old wounds and past experiences. Feelings of fear and anxiety are being triggered as long suppressed emotions, neglected grief, pain and suffering rise to the surface to be cleared

The organization reports that these disorders, which can include general anxiety, panic disorder, society anxiety and others, are actually highly treatable, but that few people seek treatment.

Encounter the mystery of life and living with Krista Tippet and Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen, wise physician, author and founder of the Remen Institute for the study of Health and Illness.
Through hearing these powerful stories we can sense that our losses, our illnesses have helped us to live fully and to heal not only ourselves but those whose lives we touch. Life is full of losses and disappointments, and the art of living is to make of them something that can nourish others.

Inner Journey:

WHY MEDITATE?

“Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”
— Buddha

Meditation is considered an essential practice for those who seek self-knowledge and self-mastery. Why? Basically, meditation brings awareness of how our minds work. Over time, we become watchers, able to detach from the thoughts and emotions that play out in our minds.

With this detachment, we gain the freedom to choose whether or not to act on our thoughts and emotions. We learn to distinguish between objective reality and our mental and emotional dramas.

“Only in quiet waters things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.”
— Hans Margolius

Moments

“I always say to myself, what is the most important thing we can think about at this extraordinary moment.”

-Francois de La Rochefoucauld
There are no ordinary moments – each moment is new and unique, so each moment is extraordinary. We can fill that moment with extraordinary thoughts, extraordinary deeds, extraordinary attention. We can choose to think of peace, to recognize beauty, to experience joy. This moment is ours, and we can choose what to do with it.

-Lissa Coffey
