Yearning of the Heart

What makes human beings different from animals? We share so much with mammals: warm blood, ability to move around, biological processes. Yet, we’re different. Are we really just the logical next step in the evolution of matter? Observing the world events, one may say that we’re worse than animals. Humans are destroying nature, and killing each other, not for food, but just because the other is...

Spirit Light Within

Have you noticed how everything seems easier on a sunny day? The air fills the lungs effortlessly, obstacles are less threatening, burdens lighter. Yet, at the same time, the light makes dust visible. And other things that we may not want to see. A bright day often encourages me to wash the windows so that I can enjoy the Sun better. Especially now when days are getting shorter. The sunlight...

A Spark Within

The shadows are lifting; there’s Light shining on the horizon. We’ve survived yet another season of battles within, and emerged victorious. Between Michealmass (September 29) and the first Advent Sunday (November 26 or December 4 this year, depending on your perspective) we were invited to face the inner demons. We were encouraged to use the clarity of refined thinking to pierce through the...

Curious Evolution

The abundant display of autumn foliage was all around us for the last eight weeks or so. But the yellow and orange and red and brown leaves were also falling down, one by one, abandoning the branches. And now we can notice again… the Sun-lit crisp blue late autumn sky through the silhouettes of lavender skeletons. The wind blows and blows to help the trees shed their summer attire. They need to...

The Heart Matters

Look at the image for this week’s soulful sparks below. What do you see? The photo was taken by my sister Nataša Stubler in Slovenia, Europe, several years back.     “I remember there were pleasant afternoons then,” says Nataša. “When everything is magical and all fits together, when you feel love and you’re in love, loving everything around you… We went for a walk into...

Choose Life

  The clocks were turned back to the natural solar dial in the U.S. last weekend. Finally. What a relief to be in sync with the cosmic Chronos again. But this change always requires some adjustments: we have to acclimate to the beat of Nature anew after running ahead since before the Vernal Equinox. Why is the world's leading nation so eager to rush into illusions, yet so reluctant to...

Intricate Laces of Life

  The veils between the worlds are thin not just on the night of Samhain or Hallowmas/Halloween, which was in the middle of last week, but for a few days around the Mid-Autumn at the beginning of November. What do you see when you look across the threshold? Do you know how to face the Light? Or are you pulled down into the abyss of shadows, powerlessly? Don’t allow the lure of commercialism...

Inner Sanctum

  The shadows are disappearing from my Soul. Finally. They’re sliding off like old skin, turning to dust. They’re evaporating in the bright Sun of my inner being. As Nature sheds off its summer garments, we are offered an opportunity to do the same. It’s a cleansing rite, but of a different kind then in the Spring. In Autumn, it’s about purifying our sensibilities along with the...
