Use What You Know
In astrology, Jupiter represents style trends, among many other things. The largest of the planets (1,200 times the size of Earth) orbits our Sun in about 12 years, exerting so much gravity on our central star that the Sun oscillates as Jupiter tugs on it. By the way, you can tell that to anyone who claims that the obstetrician exerts more gravity on the newborn baby than does Jupiter (by which logic astrology cannot possibly be true). I've never seen a doctor cause a star to wobble. More
Omega Institute Finding Gratitude in a Painful Moment by Monique Lang
We were two-thirds of the way to the top of Mount Washington when my right leg gave out. My friend Marc and I had planned this hike on the summer solstice for over a year. So we decided to do the climb even though it was drizzling, which it turned out, meant we could not stop as we became too chilled. I was soaked through and through (even through my rain gear), borderline hypothermic, and in major pain. Yet there was no solution except to keep going. More
Omega Institute Making Anger Work for You by Joe Weston

Omega Institute Miso Vegetable Soup: A Cooking Meditation by Suzanne Boothby
A Cooking Meditation
Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh sums up Zen practice with these few words: “Smile, breathe, and go slowly.” In our busy lives, it's not uncommon to rush when preparing (and eating) a meal. But miso loses healthful enzymes and its aroma when boiled, so rushing is not the best strategy. Warming the soup slowly and gently requires mindful attention, which is the perfect opportunity to take Thich Nhat Hanh's advice. More
