Adolescence Ė The Darkness Before the Dawn
Do you remember what it was like to be an adolescent? The anger, the confusion, the rebellion? The intense need to express yourself, even in ways that were upsetting to the people around you?
Or maybe you are the parent of an adolescent. Maybe you long for the days when he or she was a sweet, compliant child, wanting nothing more than to be just like you.
Thankfully, adolescence doesnít last forever. And, in most cases, if you have truly good, solid values that youíve transmitted with love, your adolescent will pass through this phase of turmoil and breakdown and come out the other side as a person who makes you really proud...
There are many individuals today claiming to have psychic abilities. Some have made quite lucrative careers out of these claims. But are they real? Can they truly see the future? Do they actually have the ability to speak to the dead, foretell future events and recount past lives? I believe that it is almost impossible to predict the future of another person. It is much easier to predict your own future; after all itís your life, who could ever know more about it than you? As far as speaking to speaking to the dead and recounting past lives, well Iíll keep an open mind about such things but my personal hunch is that most people claiming to have these abilities are less than genuine...

ANNUAL FORECAST FOR 2006 : YEAR OF YANG RED FIRE DOG BASED ON CHINESE ASTROLOGY
(Year of Yang Red Fire Dog : 29.01.2006 to 17.02.2007)
GENERAL ANALYSIS :
In Chinese Hsia Calender, 2006 is the 4703rd year and is called the Bing-Xu : the Year of the Dog. It is also the third year of the new Fengshui Land Luck Period 8. The Calendar is based on the Five Elements of Nature. They are also known as the Pancha Pranas or the Pancha Bhoodhas : Earth (Bhoomi), Water (Jala), Fire (Agni), Metal (Air, Vaayu), and Wood (Ether, Sky, Spirit, Space, Aakash)...
My mother taught me how to teach others about the power of the mind. By learning how to teach her, I learned how to communicate essential wealth-building ideas to others.
Many years ago, she worked as an employee in an insurance company. Her low salary pinned her to a fixed income. Trapped in her cubicle, she held little hope for change.
With Christmas only a month away, she was upset. Normally, a generous soul, she did not know how to face the season of giving. She could barely pay her many bills, let alone buy everyone in our family presents...
The Use and Abuse of Mysticism in the Song of Songs:
The incorporation of Aristotelian thought into the dogma of Catholicism was not the first attempt to have alchemy co-opted or hermeneutically imbued into the whole system of thought. The fact that Aquinas did this under the tutelage of a Dominican Bishop who is regarded as the forbear of Goethe and Illuminized thought has not escaped me. Frater Albertus Magnus is a name still to be reckoned with in the present day as a person by that name heads the International Alchemical group in Salt Lake City...
Creating your World with Words
Try saying these words to yourself:
Depressed, sad, afraid, guilty, alone, weak, fragmented, disconnected, weary, helpless, victimized, threatened, tired, drained, resentful, unappreciated, misunderstood, burdened, angry, hate, hard, not good enough, dreary, stupid, ugly, lonely, impossible, overwhelmed, isolated, too much for me, failure, I can't, danger, panic, it's too hard?
How do you feel? And, what happens to your goals when you feel this way? To your energy? To your willingness to take risks? To your belief in yourself and your dreams?
It's not such a pretty picture...
At a recent lecture on Belief Systems, a student asked, "Is mysticism a religion?"
Mysticism is a spiritual discipline aiming at direct communion with God or the ultimate truth. It is not a religion and, in fact, all religions have mystics. There are Christian mystics, Jewish mystics (Kabbalists), Islamic mystics (Sufis), Buddhist and Hindu mystics. Where all the tenets of these religions intersect is where you'll find the mystics.
Mystics also study universal laws, which, by definition, are always true, not merely for a particular era or culture...
