Child To Man, Soul To Soul

by Rob Graff

I was riding my bicycle this afternoon on a perfection-for-weather September day in the Chicago area. I was feeling so joyous that I began zig-zagging the front wheel of my bike back and forth, feeling a bit like a child seeking the 'roller-coaster effect.' As I approached an intersection of a street, I saw a woman pushing her child in a carriage. The infant couldn't have been more than 2 years old by my estimation.

Did my past life save my life?

Personal reflections on the Tylenol killings in 1982

It’s been 28 years since the cyanide-laced Extra Strength Tylenol killed Paula Prince, a 35-year-old flight attendant who lived in Chicago. She purchased the tainted Tylenol at the Walgreen’s on the corner of North Avenue and Wells Street in the Old Town neighborhood of Chicago on September 29 and died from ingesting the poison on October 1, 1982.

My old neighborhood. My old Walgreen’s. Read More...

The Law of Distraction

by Frank Dobner

Why I Wrote This

As I entitled this article, I was not attempting to be witty or clever. Really I want to offer an adjustment to the law of attraction, based on my own experience and wisdom extracted from “A Course in Miracles.” I am writing this, since some of what is being passed around as the law of attraction, is really not serving others well. I led a discussion on this very same subject yesterday evening and I wanted to share a clear idea what is my truth about this inspiring concept that is helpful rather than distracting. I also have a special little bonus for you at the end of this article. Read More...

The Sacred Personality

by Frank Dobner

What We Want

Everywhere on earth, people of every kind are universally looking for the same things. They long for the experiences of inner peace, unconditional love and all-powerful and universal knowing. Among the usual words we use to describe these experiences, are the words “essence,” “divinity,” “being,” and “God.”

The search for these experience is almost a mythical journey for many of us. We vaguely remember experiencing these things at a time unknown and out of grasp. Yet while thinking that this state is surely unobtainable, we secretly search for it our whole lives, in all kinds of twisted and desperate ways. Read More...

God Doesn’t Call The Qualified But Rather Qualifies The Called.

by Rhonda Patrick-Sison

As Mr. T would say “I pity the fool” that doesn’t take this quote to heart. I’m actually the fool who, for more years than I care to say, believed that I had to have certain qualification before I could offer my gifts to the world.

If you feel a sense of “something more” inside and have an idea, a gut feeling, a hunch, that it might just have something to do with sharing your authentic self with others, then more than likely you are being called. Called by whom? By those who need you most.

Paying Attention - Receive Gifts

by Dan Doviddio

Walks with Teddy B
Teddy B Square

I was going for my morning walk the other day with Teddy B a couple of weeks ago. It was a humid day and it had rained earlier.

Lately I’ve been more mindful of my surroundings. Kind of a walking meditation if you will. Looking for beauty in nature or people or things. Whatever. Allowing the Universe to show me what’s looking good. At least looking good for my perspective.

I was walking along and noticed a very tall pine tree that almost looked like it had been decorated. It was about 100 feet away.

Connecting The Dots

by Frank Dobner

I have read more books in the last year than in any prior year of my life, looking for answers. I have so many questions to be answered, yet at this plateau of life, surely now is the time for good answers. I spend a lot of time “connecting the dots” at an intellectual, emotional and body level because I have a strong connection to all three. One subject that has seized my attention recently, is the idea that there is a real world in which we participate that we can’t see or touch. This real world is the world where coincidence,
Stay-On-Path-Japanese-Garden-Geneva-Illinois-September-2010-019
connection, instantaneous communication and source of life really exists. It is also a world which our brute force, physical world obliterates because of our misdirection of awareness. Some people will call this heaven and believe that it must happen only after you are dead. I do believe it is heaven, but don’t believe it needs to happen only later. Read More...

…..On Surviving Death

by Frank Dobner on 02 Sep 2010

One thing that has caught my attention just recently, to which I have never given much serious thought ….reincarnation. Personally, I have no first hand experience in dying yet, nor do I know anyone by first name that has survived death and can tell me the details. Actually the word “reincarnation” has always irritated me as something that goes on in India somewhere, but is a mere cocktail party dalliance where I live.

I remember when I graduated from the university and went to work as a design engineer in downtown San Francisco, I was completely amazed by the people that I worked with that came from all over the world….Afghanistan, India, Hungary, Italy, France, China, Russia, Pakistan, Korea, Taiwan, New Jersey. I was totally amazed by the stories, the places and the extreme weirdness of all of these people.

Praying For Learning Without Pain

by Rhonda Patrick-Sison

What an awesome morning! The first day of my 47th year on this planet and I feel like it’s my first day of kindergarten! God blesses us all in expected and unexpected way, and this is unexpected.

As I sat this morning in prayer and meditation I felt a fresh awareness of my own divine power come through me. I know that sounds kind of dramatic but it was subtle and filled the space between my breath and thoughts. For all of you out there who are in the thick of navigating this Spiritual Renaissance for yourselves and others, I would like to offer up this reflection.

Constipation Of The Mind

by Denise Van Vilet
From: Embrace The BITCH Within

Have you ever sat down and tried to focus on something and nothing happens? It’s what I like to call Constipation of the Mind. Because the Mind looks for anything else to think about to keep us distracted from what it is that we’re really trying to do. For example; sometimes when I go to sit down to work on my book, all these thoughts about all the things that I could be doing start to come to mind, all of a sudden all these other ideas start popping out of my head. This is constipation of the mind. You sit and try to focus and nothing happens.

Cruel To Be Kind

by Frank Dobner

I was in the gym today and I heard this song. Dave, the gym manager there, has similar tastes in music as I, and so I can usually count on him to play stuff that I like. I tend to enjoy listening to the harder rock music of the 70′s and 80′s. Today the song on was “Cruel To Be Kind.”

I particularly like this song because it’s sonically such a nicely constructed song, with light-hearted acoustic strums, melodic lines and sleak backing vocal hooks. It was one of those moments in the day when I am taken out of time and space to “wear” this song. Suddenly I am feeling really good and it is certainly because I am really taken by this song.
