footprints in the sand
Sometimes our relationship with our parents is strong and loving, yet we still find ourselves unable to explain the difficult feelings we carry. We often assume that the problem originates inside us, and if we only dig deep enough, we’ll discover its source. Until we uncover the actual triggering event in our family history, we can relive fears and feelings that don’t belong to us—unconscious fragments of a trauma—and we will think they’re ours. Todd’s Story More
Omega Institute You Are Not the Wave by Sister Dang Nghiem
In the Buddhist tradition, there are three stages on the path of practice: Listening, Reflection, and Practice. The first stage, listening came from the historical setting of the Buddha’s time, when there was no radio, DVDs, or the Internet. The monks and nuns listened intently to the Buddha’s teachings, called dharma talks. The monastics who were listening were referred to as sravajas, which meant “listeners or hearers” of the Buddha’s teachings. Having listened, they reflected further, and they then practiced the teachings. More

In the Buddhist tradition, there are three sublime practices: The first sublime practice is the generation of a compassionate and loving heart, also known as pure intention. We begin each activity with the positive intention that our action will be of benefit to others. The second sublime practice is the activity or practice itself, which we do mindfully, while remaining in the natural state, free from distraction. More

In this school called life, we will take various classes, which involve subjects or experiences we signed up for while still in Spirit. Before our incarnation, we choose the life we think will afford us the best opportunities and/or challenges to help us hone our skills in practicing the energy of love. For most souls, much of the curriculum is defined by the relationships they will experience on Earth. These relationships will present opportunities to learn valuable lessons that the soul wouldn't receive any other way. More

In the digital age, when we tend to communicate via the abbreviated shorthand of texting and social media posts, it’s easy to lose touch with the instinct that had our ancestors spinning yarns around the campfire and passing down oral histories. Ironically, this is probably one of the reasons oral true storytelling has been gaining in popularity in recent years. Because you already know quite a bit about true storytelling—it’s innate for all humans and so you yearn for it.  More

Choosing the Via Positiva—the Path of Affirmation
On his deathbed the great psychologist and lover of the human race Erich Fromm turned to his friend Robert Fox and asked, "Why is it that the human race prefers necrophilia to biophilia?" A significant question, this. Why do we prefer love of death to love of life? Missiles to celebration? Power-over to power-with? Greed to letting go? More
Omega Institute Accepting Your Truth: An Interview With Mark Nepo
An Interview With Mark Nepo
Omega: Is there a poem that inspired you to be a poet? Mark: The poetry of Pablo Neruda really inspired me. When I first read his work, I felt like, “I must belong to this tribe.” My oldest friend, Robert, who comes with me as a guest every year when I teach at Omega, introduced me to Neruda. I was so moved, I wouldn’t give him the book back. Omega: In 1987, you were diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma, which has greatly informed much of your work. What’s the first step toward healing?  More
moon and cloud
Have you noticed that things seem to be moving faster and faster and it takes a certain kind of mental flexibility to keep up? Have you noticed an inherent awareness within yourself that knows the truth? Have you sensed that you don’t really operate as an isolated individual, that your actions are interconnected with everyone? The yogis tell us that we’re experiencing all this because we are now in the Aquarian Age. As you might guess by its name, the Aquarian Sadhana was developed specifically for this time period. More

The Underlying Question
Mars retrograde began on April 17 in Sagittarius. In late May, Mars retrograded into Scorpio, bringing us to the heart of the matter of this rare transit. The retrograde ends in Scorpio on June 29. Mars is the planet of desire. Desire is one of those elements at the core of the human emotional engine. It's true that religions and spiritual philosophies line up one after the next attempting to prove to people that desire is the worst thing in the world. Yet nobody would seek being happier, or seek knowledge, or crack open a book about Buddhism, if they didn't want something. More
