Beacon of Love

  A Zen proverb advises: “Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.” Jack Kornfield chimes in: “Before ecstasy, do laundry. After ecstasy, do laundry.” Perhaps you’ve had a wonderful experience of oneness with the spiritual world. Most of us have had a moment of enlightenment. But that’s not enough. We need to maintain the flame alive moment after moment, day after day. It requires dedication, discipline, perseverance. It also demands resistance to the forces of darkness. Don’t give in to...

Change

  The life on Earth is a constant dance between light and darkness, a perfect balance of in-breath and out-breath. We cannot hold our breath in for too long, nor can we keep pushing the air out all the time. Sometimes, the Sun shines bright for hours, and we forget that the night will come, that clouds will cover the blue sky. Yet, we need the rain to sustain life. At other times, a long, moonless night will linger and linger. Will the Sun ever rise again? Will its rays ever penetrate through the heavy grey clouds? Yes, the sky will cry...

Transitions

  I always feel a perceptible shift in me at the beginning of September, regardless of my inner mood and outer circumstances. Perhaps this sensibility developed through my schooling. In Slovenia, where I grew up, the grade and high schools started on the first day of September. Yes, I enjoyed the summer vacation, but was looking forward to embark on the ship of new learning adventures in the company of my classmates. Enormous transitions on the Soul’s annual pilgrimage occur in September, especially in the temperate zones of the Northern...

Transformation

  The Spirit seed within my heart—like a flickering candle light—is always humble, but powerful. True strength, true power is gentle, and immensely beautiful in its modesty. It’s not about some trick or technology, forcing seeds to ripen quickly and prematurely to gather profits. No. It’s about slow, steady journey, savoring each step, contemplating each experience. It’s about growing strong, yet, flexible roots deep into the rich soil of our inner world. Outer appearances disappear; masks fall away, shattered into thousand pieces. The...

Expectations

  The heat of Summer eases our expansion into the high Spirit realms. The cold of Winter invites us to explore the inner fires of the Soul. And then it’s time to take action: Bringing Spirit impressions into the earthly life through thoughts that lead to deeds in Autumn; sharing Soul insights with the external world through heart-felt determination in Spring. In Autumn, we gather the harvest, the physical expression of the Soul’s abundance. We sow the seeds in Spring, the outer manifestation of the Spirit at work. The month before the...

Co-Creating Life

  I was taken aback for a moment when reading Rudolf Steiner’s verse for this week (Week 20). But then I realized that he was presenting an image as if in a photo negative. Now I can see that he was trying to convey how a person’s life would be if separated from others, if severed from the Spirit world. Each one of us would die if left alone. We are spiritual and gregarious creatures. The Spirit Light and human love are essential ingredients for our species to live. We need communion with the Divine, as well as the embrace of the human...

Soul Dance

  Have you noticed how a bright sunny day can change your mood? Or how you are delighted by spring blossoms swaying in a gentle breeze? Human souls breathe with the Soul of our home planet and awaken when touched by its expressions in the seasons of Nature. We’re bathed in the sunshine during the day; we’re caressed by the Moon, planets, and stars at night. We feel the monthly lunar cycle in the flow of our bodily fluids, women and men alike. The energy of the heavens colors the Earth as the Sun passes through the constellations on its...

Soak in the Sun

Soak in the Sun

  We’ve had a few heat waves this summer already, in NYC and in Europe, and there are more to come. Yes, it’s hot and humid, as it should be in July and August. The weather is pushing us to step off the fast track. Yet, we can still get the work done. One can often accomplish more when operating in smoother groove. You don’t even need an AC. I’ve been living without the artificial conditioning of captured air for years. I find the fans to be much more effective to cool and circulate the air. And my body became more resilient to hot and...
