I believe that spiritual growth under the right conditions is as natural as breathing…and the conditions of our world are the perfect conditions for spiritual growth. The person you are right now, with all of your challenges and strengths, pain and joys, failures and victories, is exactly the perfect person for the journey ahead. And your life, exactly as it is, is offering you the exact conditions to stimulate growth. My intention for this...

A young man with racial hatred in his heart and carrying a concealed weapon, which he acquired without a background check into his criminal record, enters a church famed for its role in the civil rights movement in Charleston, South Carolina. He knows it is the hour for a prayer circle attended by some prominent African-American leaders. He intends to kill them and by so doing instigate riots and a race war. Before he kills nine people, all...

From the Journal of Sustainability, March 16, 2015 Humanity has entered a time of profound change. We are pushed by necessity and pulled by opportunity. The push is a growing systems crisis, evident in the breakdown of financial institutions, climate disruption, resource depletion, unsustainable populations, and more. The pull is the opportunity to rise to a new level of human maturity, partnership, and freedom. The combined push and pull at a...

Reprinted from http://www.lynnemctaggart.com/blog/290-je-suis-gagged Jan 09, 2015 Over the last few days all of us in the West have been horrified by the spectacle of Islamic fanatics blowing away 10 of the staff of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, including its editor, Stephane Charbonnier and his police bodyguard. It shocks us precisely because we believe that one of our most fundamental freedoms, the right to free speech, is...

Reprinted from www.carterphipps.com. See also The Institute for Cultural Evolution. Perched on a narrow stretch of the Big Sur Pacific coastline, Esalen Institute is about as far away as you can get from the Washington DC and still be in the same country—geographically, but also politically, culturally, and institutionally. Yet, for a few days in the first week of October, those distances were bridged, and Esalen played host to a carefully...

The headlines coming from the West African countries, Liberia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria on the increasing spread of Ebola (October 2014) with the predicted deaths of tens of thousands should be understood in the context of sensitive scientific and spiritual approaches to a very serious problem that requires ‘the best of healing attitudes.’ It should not be through ‘fear attitudes’ as spawned by many of the Western news media...

August 21, 2014  Reprinted from http://jackcanfield.com Variety is the spice of life. But if you – like me – view the world as an exciting buffet of opportunities to learn, try and create new things, you know that variety can be dangerous.  The problem is that it’s easy to get distracted from the goals and commitments you’ve already made. Rather than seeing things through to completion, you abandon the goals and projects you’ve already started...

Hello Dear Friends, Cultural Creatives, and Imaginal Cells! The evolution is in full swing. Having returned from 6 months on the road (Australia, New Zealand, India, Turkey, Israel, Vienna, Dublin and London, whew!), the news from the world front is that all these countries are facing the very same issues as citizens in the States: inefficient governments, unstable economic systems, wealth being concentrated into the hands of a few, escalating...

Why “now” is so different Now is different. The world that we grew up in is gone, and it’s not coming back. It disappeared before our eyes. While we were shopping for the weekly groceries, putting meals on the table for our families, and caring for our aging parents, the familiar world we’ve known and trusted disappeared. The problem is that no one told us this was happening. No one told us that our lives were being changed forever. There was no...

Hi Friends, Neuroscience, mood, health, and the creation of meaning have all come together in a new field called narrative medicine. How you tell the story of your life can make the difference between bitterness and gratefulness; fear and trust; love and hate; and even sickness and health. One of my favorite neuroscientists and therapists, Dan Siegel, M.D. writes, "...narrative medicine is creating a larger context for your story that lets you...
