Suspended in Time
March begins with a cluster of three events, none of which is special on its own, but which combined offer us a moment with many interesting opportunities.  Mercury stationed direct on February 28, after a three-week retrograde. Then overnight, into March 1, we had the Pisces New Moon. After that, Mars stationed retrograde. This is not the time to be a bull in a Chinese restaurant. Take it slow, study the menu, and make choices that actually make sense for you. More
Adyashanti on Religion & Revolutionary Thinking
I often wonder what it would be like if Jesus were alive today. Imagine Jesus—who wasn’t a Christian, after all, but a Jew—entering a church today, going up to the pulpit, and giving a sermon.

Omega Institute Embrace Winter & Connect With Nature
Outside of the tropics, winter is a time of rest. It's a time when much of the natural world begins to turn inward and withdraw into itself. Everything slows down, insulates itself, reacting and responding to the colder temperatures—including us humans. More
Omega Institute The Secret Life of Kirtan by Krishna Das
People ask me, “What is your experience when you chant?” I don’t know what to tell them. What I do is a little mystical and mysterious, even to me. I can’t explain it. When I sing I start to release my thoughts and feelings and the stuff of the day. I start to get quieter inside. I am singing to that loving presence that is represented for me by my guru Neem Karoli Baba. I don’t necessarily think about him, Maharaj-ji, as a person when I’m singing. It goes deeper than that.
