the most astounding fact about the universe

What is the most astounding fact about the universe?

It’s a crazy question. One that stirs something deep inside of us. Unlocking within us one of the most human of all emotions – wonder.

That question was posed to Astrophysicist Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson by a reader of TIME magazine, “What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the Universe?”

Below you’ll find his answer. Continue Reading…

Spiritual Awareness

Spiritual AwarenessThe New Spiritual Awareness

We have begun to expand our awareness and our own conceptions of ourselves. Finding a new found freedom in those moments where our simple, everyday concerns dissolve into worlds far greater than our own.

The world itself is now within our reach. Our global technological connectivity is a metaphor for what is happening within our own consciousness.

What we are bearing witness to a world that’s always been there, hidden within the words of the mystics and prophets. It’s only now that we’re able to see it. Continue Reading…

A Global Awakening Is Happening

aAwakening is word getting thrown around more and more nowadays but does any of us really know what this means?

What does awakening mean on a personal level? How about on a global level? How does awakening apply to business? What about family, schools, the arts…

Is every aspect of our lives being affected in some way? And what is happening really?

Maybe we can get some insight from the root meaning of the word Awaken: “to spring into being,” also,”to wake up;” “to rouse from sleep” or “to stir up, rouse to activity”. Source: http://www.etymonline.com

But what are we awakening to?

I posed the question on facebook, “What does the global awakening mean for you?” and here’s some of the responses:

“Global awakening means to me the evolution of consciousness to who and what we are as a being and a species along with the withheld information about humanities origins and our divine connection with God and the Universe.”
~ Shannon Ramon Jeffries

“Reaching the core, of our light body. Realization that humanity is one working mechanism. Activation of our dormant DNA strands that completes as part of our evolution. It means far much more.” ~ Priscilla Thompson

“We are not alone…” ~ Lama Pittman

“Interconnectedness, a conscious responsibility for our own evolution and leading by example.” ~ Maria Munoz

“Through earth and cosmic changes, evolving to a higher level of existence; becoming a more spiritual, loving, effective and responsible being.” ~ Heidi Herman

“When the harmonic resonance of collective consciousness and unconsciousness amplify ‘good’ ideals actions and dreams. When utopia over topples this current distopia of reality…” Lozza Natili

“It is the ripple effect. One person becomes enlightened, then his surroundings, then his community, his city, his country, his world, the universe at large. Everyone is Consciously living… and the realization that all is One.. is understood Consciously.. by all.” ~ Kalani George

As we can see the concept of a global awakening means different things to different people. Though if we look closely we can see some ideas that we may even call universal in relation to what this awakening means to me, you and the average joe next door:

Global Awakening Concepts

  • Remembering Our Connection To Source
  • Remembering Our Connection To Each Other
  • Realizing That We Are A Global Community
  • Taking Responsibility For Ourselves & Our Actions
  • Leading By Example
  • Being Conscious or Aware In Our Everyday Lives
  • Realizing That Heaven Is Here On Earth

A lot of people toss around the concept of universal love emerging within the hearts of all. That this love will enable the world to make the fundamental shift necessary to move into the next stage of human evolution. I think this is too much of a leap for the world to take right now.

You can’t fake a feeling. You can’t just walk up to someone and expect them to be down with the “All we need is love program.”

Later on. Further down the path yes. The individual will come to conclusion naturally. But at first they’ll just shut down, turn off, and tune out.

It seems that the most influential concept that may be necessary and easily accepted by everyone is the idea of our inherent connectedness.

Insights into The Ancient Egyptian Wisdom

The Boat of Millions of Years by Naomi Ozaniec

awThe Sacred Science of Ancient Egypt has much to offer us as we search to make a new paradigm a reality. Although the complex Egyptian pantheon can appear confusing, the application of a few simple keys will reveal a practical and profound understanding of nature and the cosmos.

Full Moon and Eclipse Aug. 5-6 2009

Everything that rises has to descend.  If the arch of an arrow stretches it must be released. These are laws of equilibrium and duality.  This galactic cycle that is ending now is that of the new Mayan year.  The next galactic cycle is the Magician.  It is the galactic cycle that comes to activate the warriors of light. The energy that takes you toward a higher vibration to prompt you toward the light.  It is like the confusion prior to an eclipse.


All the animals become noisy and are confused. In the case of the human beings that have not done any personal work of awareness, they are going to feel the energy stonger leading to exhaustion, headaches, anger, discussions. This energy guides each and everyone of you to self understanding.  Therefore the importance of inner purification before the eclipse, so that each may benefit from this energy. Prepare your body, cleansing your “house” to receive the new energy.  The challenge of the galactic cycle is to balance the duality through the vision of service, knowing when to say “yes” or “no”.

The Eagle is the most important force for the warrior representing the Vision. The Vision towards Mother Earth that comes through the synchronicity of situations which She brings us and the correct use of your free will on behalf of the Light. The lunar eclipse falls on the day of Lunar Eagle.  That is the vision of the moon.

The Call Of The New Paradigm

© Ian Paul Marshall

I give thanks for this precious moment,
This chance to be alive.
For life is sacred, special, and a fragile thing.

Realizing that it may end at any moment
I give thanks for all that I have
And strive to live each day to the fullest.

I have come to realize the power that is within me.
That my former thoughts, words and actions
Became my present state
And right now, in this moment, I’m creating my future.

To Renounce or Not Renounce

buddhist-robe-begging-bowl

That was the question posed to the great Ramana Maharshi…

Ramana Maharshi – The life of action need not be Renounced

Question : The yogis say that one must renounce this world and go off into secluded jungles if one wishes to find the truth.
Ramana Maharshi:
The life of action need not be renounced. If you meditate for an hour or two every day you can then carry on with your duties. If you meditate in the right manner then the current of mind induced will continue to flow even in the midst of your work. It is as though there were two ways of expressing the same idea; the same line which you take in meditation will be expressed in your activities Continue Reading…

The Heart Sutra

Prajnaparamita The Heart Sutra

Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion, meditating deeply on Perfection of Wisdom, saw clearly that the five aspects of human existence are empty*, and so released himself from suffering.  Answering the monk Sariputra, he said this:

Body is nothing more than emptiness,
emptiness is nothing more than body.
The body is exactly empty,
and emptiness is exactly body.
