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.

Yet nobody would seek being happier, or seek knowledge, or crack open a book about Buddhism, if they didn't want something. More

Omega Institute You've Probably Already Taken a Shamanic Journey: An Interview With John Perkins
An Interview With John Perkins
Omega: How would you describe a shamanic journey to someone who has never experienced one? John: I think everyone has taken a shamanic journey, they just haven’t called it that. If you’ve daydreamed or dreamed, if you’ve gone into deep thinking about something, if you’ve read a book and felt deeply involved in it, in a way you were on a shamanic journey. More

woman's face with serious look
People get so caught up in the content of their spiritual enthusiasms that they may give little thought to the emotions involved. Some adults tell me that they still follow the values taught in the church where they grew up simply because their family believed in it so firmly. It’s the family that accounts for the strong faith, not the spiritual ideas. More
