Mathieu Degrot MD-Arts

Passionate about photography since my childhood, I came to be more involved into it by meeting fantastic people. I love all kinds of arts and had the opportunity to follow several workshops in the Art School of Nancy. I like to consider art as a whole, and not as several different fields. I am a completely self-taught photographer, which helps my work conveying a fresh creativity I want to hold on to. Besides, my studies in a top engineering school gave me the rigorous background needed to master all the technical aspects of photography. My goal is to create unique pictures, different from what we are used to see everywhere. Pictures depicting an emotion, a reality, a brief moment; but even more than that, pictures that can make the viewer think about himself and the world we live in, by escaping in another world.

Spiritual Growth Checkpoint:

Windows of Opportunity By Sherri Cortland

I’ve been communicating with my Guides through automatic writing for nearly thirty years, and they started dictating material for their books about seven years ago. One thing I can say with great certainty about the important information and tips for spiritual growth that they’ve channeled over the years is this: It’s usually easier to channel it than it is to put it into action. And here’s the most important thing I’ve learned in the last three decades: Our best intentions do nothing to help us expedite our spiritual growth--we have to move be-

yond intention into action. Training ourselves to take our intentions to the next level is something we can all do, and we can do it in baby steps, i.e., if meditating 15 minutes a day is our goal, we can start out with two or three minutes a day and work our way up to 15 minutes over time. It’s less daunting, I think, when we break our goal into smaller steps; and it’s always rewarding and worthwhile when we reach that goal. 9 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ June 2014

If you’re a regular reader of my column, you know that my Guides are always talking about the importance of spotting our windows of opportunity early, so that we can learn what we’ve come into body to learn with less drama and less pain. I know from personal experience that taking the time to learn how to spot our windows is a goal that’s worth our attention and time, and what follows is a plan of action to develop our windowspotting skills, and it’s broken down into small steps to help take us from intention to action.

Spotting Windows: Learning to spot windows is like learning any other skill—it just takes practice! Windows are everywhere—at home, at work, even at the grocery store. The best way to find your windows is to examine your life and look for patterns and life scripts:

Like your meditation practice, looking for our windows is an on-going process, and here’s that plan of action to help us get started:

Step #4: Devise a plan of action for future windows…

They will tell you right away!! and experiences.


This is emotional and eye-opening work. I cried my eyes out when I discovered an on-going life script I had with controlling men and realized that I could have ended that pattern so much closer to the ground floor if only I had done this work sooner. I discovered a pattern that occurred only in the grocery store where I thought people were being very rude to me, but it turned out that my own behavior was attracting it. I found another pattern where I was attracting cars to pull out in front of me and tailgate me, thus giving me the opportunity to respond negatively or to throw positive energy into the mix. Until I recognized the pattern, it wasn’t positive energy that I was doling out on the road to work! I’m still finding patterns and windows, and that’s the first step to ending a life script--you first have to recognize the life script. Here’s my suggestion to get started: Grab a box of tissues and set aside 10 minutes a day a couple of times a week to meditate and work on discovering the patterns in your life. This small amount of time and action will yield big results on the path to expediting spiritual growth.

Review your behavior and reactions to past situations/windows that make up your life script; determine changes that you can make the next time a similar situation occurs; and continue making changes to your attitude, behavior, and reactions until this type of situation stops presenting itself.

The historical town of Masouleh, having an attractive nature and a wonderful architecture with an antiquity of more than 1000 years, is situated at a distance of 35 km from Fooman and 60 km from Rasht, and 1050 m. above the Caspian Sea. Masouleh is registered as historical towns in the historical & cultural heritage register under the number 1090. This beautiful complex, remained from history with traditions, manners and customs, handicrafts, and many natural and historical sites, is the host of thousands of eager guests and travelers every year.

It was founded in the 10th century AD.

Many other springs are also found around Masouleh which is surrounded by dense forests from valley to mount. Fog is the predominate weather feature of Masouleh. Further inland, the landward side of the Alborz receives very little rainfall and rapidly becomes arid. The roofs of houses on lower tiers are used as courtyards for houses on the tiers above them. In some cases, public streets are laid out along interconnected roofs.



The organic layout and steep stairs have made motor vehicles impractical, so they are banned in the village. About 800 people currently live in the village. Due to being located on Caspian strip and having also suitable soil it is covered with luxuriant forests such as Tosca, Walnut, Hazelnut and Pasturages. Besides, there are waterfalls, small rivers and springs, that totally have created a beautiful and eye-catching natural landscape.

g Dream

Art by Maryam Morrison 25 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♼ June 2014

Are dreams deep, meaningful experiences that can reveal unconscious desires or simply random brain activity? I have been asked this question over and over again. At the end of the day, the truth is that we really don’t know what dreams are or why we have them. The scientist believes that truth is only what can be measured in a laboratory. The mystic believes that dreams are unmistakably the living realm of the Soul. Since I consider myself half scientist, half mystic, I appreciate everything that dreams have to offer us. I thrill with every new piece of information provided by the latest advances in neuroscience. And I know that dreams offer remarkable insight; examining them can unlock untold secrets and reveal to us amazing elements of the human mystery.

Love and Light: Things like fear, doubt, worry and the illusion of separation. Dreams are the perfect snapshot to reveal to you where you might be blocking more Light and Love to flow through your consciousness and reveal your Soul to you.

A number of years ago, a young woman in her mid-twenties came to me because she had been having recurring nightmares about killing her own babies immediately after giving birth to them. The images absolutely horrified her and she was convinced that they must be confirmation of darkly sinister associations with motherhood that were worming their way into her consciousness. She was terrified about what this might mean for her potential future as a mother. After having different versions of this disturbScience has indeed proven that we get ing dream for several weeks, she finally smarter during REM sleep.

This is an easy interpreour attention. What does require our at- tation to understand. I went on to detention, however, are the blockages to scribe murder as a deliberate death. 26 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ June 2014

While this may look at first like a scary image with negative connotations, death is in fact a very positive symbol. It represents the ultimate transformation, as death is the end of one thing, but the beginning of something new. Death is always going to be followed by rebirth. After she took this in, I asked her if there was anything in her life that looked anything like the new prospects that a baby might represent. She said she did indeed have a writing project that she was struggling with. I encouraged her to say more about that. She explained that she had been working on a creative project and had been throwing out various rough drafts and starting over again. When I wondered if the nightmares might have coincided with moments when she had to throw out a draft and start again, her eyes widened with that look that says – “aha”! In this woman’s case, the babies represented the precious first drafts she was birthing through her creativity. The gruesome murders were her psyche’s way of expressing the regret she felt over having to reject her creations that weren’t satisfactory. The images were grotesque and horrifying, but had nothing to do with her becoming a murderous mom. However, when wanting to know what the dreams meant, she was unable to separate herself from the feelings that these images brought up. Her emotional attachment to her dream made it impossible for her to see what became so clear to me. In examining them closer, this woman not only had instant relief from these nighttime

disturbances, she got a glimpse into her creative process that offered her a profound understanding about herself that went beyond the rational, limited mind. Dreams are intensely personal; they happen inside of you. They offer unparalleled insight to the depths of who you are and where you are in your journey. They have an intelligence of their own and need nothing from you to do their job of allowing your Soul to express and expand. Paying them even the slightest attention, however, raises the vibration of the entire system. Sharing them with others does this even more so. Responding back with creative expression is perhaps the highest form of honor you can bestow upon them. Join us at Empowerment Camp: Waking The Teacher Within this coming June and be prepared to dive deep.

excerpts from rashmis book the divine mother speaks the healing of the human heart


by Rashmi Khilnani


I would like to talk to you about how the universe operates: It operates through the laws of paradox and humor. It is very funny to note that every time one of your scientists does an experiment to prove something, another one of your scientists conducts a successful experiment proving the direct opposite. The universe is very sympathetic to your intentions. So if your intention is that oranges are good for you, the universe will rearrange itself to give you oranges that are good for you. Or the opposite, as the case may be. Therefore, as you move into the fifth, impeccability of intention is important. Otherwise you land up manifesting your negative thoughts and expectations, more and more instantaneously as we move into 2012 and beyond. The universe is paradoxical vis-à-vis third-dimensional reality because third-dimensional reality operates on the principal of duality (polarity). Therefore, everything that occurs in your world has an equal and opposite energy that pops up to fulfill the polarity law.

gram, “no thing” is happening. The soul is not cutting or bleeding, it is a direct emanation of source—it is pure potentiality, it is beyond life and death. The soul is your best friend and in spite of its very detached nature, loves you dearly and intimately feels your pleasure and pain. As mentioned before, this book is not to be taken literally. To mix the laws of the relative and the absolute in unwise combinations without the supervision of an enlightened master or teacher is dangerous. The Divine Mother is pouring out the wisdom teachings of all time to facilitate your accelerated waking up. The use of metaphysical wisdom is best done slowly and with spiritual guidance, and balance. If you can but see the joke and the sense of play as your talented entity Shakespeare said “all the world is a stage . . .” and you are playing your role.

What is compassion? It is a deep experiential state of honoringthe other as one honors oneself at the same time.

One of the powerful ways to integrate experiences such as the one described above and the intense pull and push of your emotions, thoughts, and life is through embracement. Embracement means a total allowance and a total acceptance of what is. This includes an embracement or allowance of your judgments and your so-called “lack of perfection.” The Divine Mother sees you as a pristine jewel of perfection even within your imperfections. Your saint of love, Amaji, illustrates the embracement principle both metaphysically and actually, when she transmits the love of the Divine Mother through hugging countless human beings on a daily basis. She offers love as the Divine Mother does . . . without judgment. excerpts from rashmis book the divine mother speaks the healing of the human heart.available on and kindle .

Because everyone is an Energy called Love; a true reflection of God/Love/Life, and can therefore, never fail.

Love is an expansive connective energy that enables individuals to experience the sublime grandeur of the core of their own being by sharing that relational energy with others. Empathically tuning into what is experientially genuine, naturally good, or fully alive in another life presence arouses similar qualities in our own being, through a process of sympathetic vibratory resonance, or compatible energy attunement. In deeply invested empathic communion, heartfelt experiential attunement, caring energetic connection, or true love, we find our fulfillment by reflecting each other’s essential qualities of life energy, such as, generosity, compassion, courage, beauty, goodness, sweetness, or enchanted richness of being, which “magnetically” arouses similar noble, exalted, or sublime qualities in ourselves. Any qualities of true greatness, genuine sincerity, and natural goodness that we empathically contact in another life presence arouses similar qualities in ourselves, because the “seeing” and “being” of the shared energy of love are interrelated processes. When we view others and ourselves through the “eyes” of love, or the perspective of nonjudgmental empathic attunement, the energy of love intuitively “sees” or recognizes (re-cognizes) its own loving, lovable, lovely qualities of flawless purity, integrated cohesive wholeness, regenerative life energy, or blessedness, in whoever or whatever it gazes upon. That is why true love naturally brings blessing by revealing its own blessed energy presence as the true being of the lover, the beloved, and the relational energy that flows between them. Sublime qualities of love such as true inner and outer beauty, sweetness, wonder-full enchantment, joyful vitality, and total security reflect an exalted or very high vibratory frequency of relational life energy, which give our consciousness the experience of being filled full to overflowing with a fully satisfying life energy presence.

The relationally shared energy presence of love also involves the experience of full blessedness, or being united to the source of everything that contributes to full satisfaction, total security, and overflowing fullness of being. The sweet or juicy qualities of love are what satisfy and nourish our inner being, metaphorically represented by tasty treats that stimulate our material taste buds with vibrations that are experienced as sweet and succulent. The energy of love naturally seeks full energetic and experiential union or deep communion with the beloved so that we can experience the blessed essence or relational core of our own life energy being as love. The vibratory energetic pattern, evolutionary blueprint, “song”, “dance”, or “story” of our own heart, soul, or essential core of being is inherently relational to other individuals, and, therefore, is naturally aroused through our loving empathic communion with them. Our empathic appreciation of the truly lovable, noble, or blessed qualities of other individuals is reflected or resonated back to us as the blessed experience of our own individual form of the being, energy, “electricity” or “electromagnetic pulse” of love. Being in the presence of and in deeply invested empathic communion with someone who we deeply care about arouses and releases the essential “juices” and related vibratory energy pulse of our own individual being, as naturally matching, compatible, complementary, resonating, vibratory energy pulses. That is why true love or warmhearted caring is the greatest natural tonic, elixir, succulent sweetness, or ambrosia and nectar of life energy. The urge to connect to another individual at a sensual, sexual, mental, emotional, experiential, and/ or energetic level is part of a natural urge for full union, unrestricted communion, empathic attunement, or deep vibratory resonance of our individual energy fields.

living energy presence, to the very core of their being, the more deeply, fully, or greatly the energy of our own whole being is “magnetically” amplified, or enhanced in its pitch or rhythmic pulsation, to the very core of our being. The process of empathic communion or energetic experiential attunement is the relational connection of true love that reveals the blessed love-being of each of the participating individuals, through an “electromagnetic” process of sympathetic, congruent, compatible, complementary, or harmonic vibratory resonance. The relational energy of love makes us extremely open or “superconductive” to contacting, experiencing, expressing, amplifying, and limitlessly expanding all of the shared qualities of love, sublime grandeur, or blessedness that are inherent to the shared being of love.

ner and outer riches of reality. Any kind of selfish self-seeking is grounded in an implicit premise of inner deficiency or lack of wholeness of being and well-being, for which we try to compensate by trying to fill ourselves with something that we presume that we currently lack. That selfish premise of inner deficiency naturally produces an increasing momentum of inner and outer experiences of deficiency, limitation, scarcity, or lack of material and experiential abundance. However, unselfishly sharing our caring energies, talents, and gifts with others implicitly reflects an opposite premise that our being or energies are limitless and inexhaustible, so we do not fear being permanently depleted or deprived through the process of giving of our energies.

There is a natural rhythmic oscillation between the giving and receiving of the expansive relational energy of love, like the natural process of inhalation and exhalation within the greater whole process of breathing, or like the rhythmic in-beat and out-beat of the heart. This rhythmic flow of energy between receiving and giving, or between self and other, is naturally meant to occur spontaneously, guided by what intuitively feels “right” to our core integrity from moment to moment, and is not meant to be managed through volitional control, which interferes with the unpredictable pulse of love’s natural flow. Conscious control tends to be one-sided, exclusive, imbalanced, restrictive, rigid, divisive, whereas the energy of love is a natural integrated seamless wholeness and spontaneous flexibility that arises from the mystery core of our being, sometimes beyond what the conscious mind can measure, predict, and control. The “perfect pitch” or rightful harmonic integrated coherence of our core integrity can gradually emerge and reveal itself when we no longer try to impose preconceived patterns or predetermined agendas upon the relational energy of love and the individual energy of our own being. Having plans and preferences is natural and should not be relinquished or suppressed, but we need to intuitively align those with rather than against the natural spontaneous flow of our individual being and relational connections.

Flamingos 50 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ June 2014

Flamingos are one of the most interesting types of animals in the world. There are six known species of them out there. They are different from many other types of birds because of the length of their legs. They aren’t often seen flying but they certainly can just like other birds. It was long debated though if they should be classified as storks or ducks. Finally, it was decided that they should have their own classification. The coloring for a Flamingo ranges from various shapes of pink all the way to a crimson red. Some of them are shades of orange too. They also have colors of cream and white mixed in. They are lovely creatures and they seem to be very calm. If you have a local zoo then chances are you have been able to see and to observe these animals up close. Flamingos live in a variety of habitat locations. They are fine in both warm and cold areas. They live in both the mountain areas and the flat lands. However, they do need plenty of access to food and to water. They are found in lakes, lagoons, and even swamps all over. As long as there are small insects, crustaceans, and algae they seem to have the food sources that they need. These animals are very social and they thrive on interaction with each other. Colonies of Flamingos in the wild can be thousands in number. Many of them are small though with only about 50 in them. The largest group of Flamingos is found in East Africa where a single colony has more than 1 million members. They engage in a variety of behaviors that are fascinating to watch.


One thing that researchers have learned by placing Flamingos in captivity is that they don’t do well if there aren’t plenty of other members around. This is why a zoo has from 15 to 25 of them to display. During mating, the Flamingos will pair up and they stay with each other after mating to create the nest for the egg. Then also work as a team to keep the egg warm and safe for about 30 days until it hatches. Young Flamingos are fed crop milk that the parents both produce instead of regurgitated foods as other birds provide for their young. Many people don’t realize how much Flamingos fly or their abilities. They can take off rapidly and fly up to 35 miles per hour. They can also fly hundreds of miles a day between different locations in order to find adequate amounts of food for them to survive on. Most of this flight time takes place at night though which is why many of us never see them. Right now none of the species of Flamingos are considered to be endangered. Yet many researchers find that what takes place in our environment now could reduce their numbers significantly in the not so distant future. It is often hard to get a good count of Flamingos due to their diverse distribution. The fact that they fly off to new habitats too can mean they aren’t counted at all or that the same ones get counted several times. For example in 1924 the James Flamingo was believed to be extinct. However, in 1957 they were discovered living in the Andes Mountains and along areas of Chile in large numbers. One of the biggest fears is the spread of diseases and toxins because these animals do live in such large colonies. It won’t take long for something to kill hundreds or even thousands of members in a short period of time. 52 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ June 2014

Global warming can reduce the natural habitat of Flamingos as it dries up the areas where they live and get their food from. It can also halt their desire to reproduce as that season is introduced when it rains. With hotter temperatures and less rain in many areas it can prevent large colonies from taking part in breeding so there are less new Flamingos out there. You also have to take into consideration that Flamingos like in difficult environments to begin with. They are found in areas where most other animals wouldn’t be able to survive for very long. When that is altered to become even worse though then they chances of evolving enough and adapting to these new surroundings is extremely difficult if not impossible to do. The overall consensus is that there are fewer Flamingos out there now than there were a decade ago or half a century ago. This is due to changes in their habitat, more hunting of them in some ranges, human elements, and environmental factors. Yet the number of them right now doesn’t seem to show a huge threat to the overall survival of them. The fact that we have done research and know the things that pose the biggest threats to the Flaming though means we can work to slow down the decline of them. Early intervention means that major efforts to protect them can be avoided later on. We have learned the hard way with too many animals what can occur if we don’t take action based on what could occur.



Experiencing Bliss: A Matter of Perspective by Sara Chetkin

Your mind is playing tricks on you. Or even better, your ego is playing tricks on you. So many teachers, philosophers and religious icons have said it: we are dreaming, and we must wake up. The process of waking up is often described as “going within.” But this can be misleading. Think of a dream. When you are dreaming would you tell your dream persona to look inside to realize it is dreaming? The thing itself is a product of the dream. Is there truth within it? Everywhere it looks it sees the projection of the dreamer’s mind: the whims and fantasies, the unearthed fears and de-

sires. And when it looks to itself it experiences the reactions to these projections: the psychoses that arise when we search for truth in the chaotic, unconscious pondering of the dreamer. The mental struggle to bring order and meaning to this chaos occurs within the realm of the ego, and it hasn’t brought me any closer to lasting peace or understanding. How about you? I am beginning to understand that if we do not transcend the need to find order within the chaos, we will only circle round and round our true nature, never truly blossoming.


In The Healing Curve, I discuss at length the importance of understanding our emotional reactions to life. We all have triggers, and these triggers have an origin. It is helpful to discover that origin and heal it. This is true, but I have come to realize that after a certain point even this process hinders our progress. Once we understand how the system works – experiences create memories, memories create programs, and programs create unconscious behavior – we must move on. We can dig and dig and dig. We will never come to the end of it because seeking understanding within the dream state only leads us into deeper dreams. Instead, we must awaken the dreamer. But how? Who is the dreamer? In Sadhana, The Path to Enlightenment, Swami Rama describes the “center of consciousness” that is sleeping within the city of life. We are this center, and this center knows well its true source. Yet, we are separated from this knowledge through our faith in the ego. The ego – or the mental self – acts like a wall, shielding from view the light of the divine. Thus, in our dream state (where ego reigns) we are unaware that this light is always upon us. Black Elk, a Sioux medicine man, understood this. He said “peace will come when we realize that the Great Spirit dwells at the center of the universe. That center is every where, it is within each of us.” If we want to experience the divine, we need only shift our attention away from the mental trappings of the ego. More often than not, when we begin a spiritual life, our first thought is to destroy the ego in order to liberate our true nature. This is folly. The ego is a tool, not a warden. 56 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ June 2014

The divine cannot be imprisoned. The divine is omnipotent. So we need not destroy the ego, but we must educate ourselves. We must surrender the power of the ego before the true master, the center of consciousness, the higher self. This is a matter of discipline, and we can begin by a simple process of observation. If we begin to pay attention to our thoughts, we will soon notice their inconsistent nature. Our minds create an ever-changing landscape where some days we are up and some days we are down. Some things look good and some bad. Our identification with this evaluative process traps us in an endless maze. The truth is there is no good, and there is no bad. The Upanishads state that diversity is an illusion. All of life is one infinite expanse known as Brahman. Everything we see is a product of divine intelligence. We do not experience it this way because we are entranced by the ego’s dualistic perspective. We have become addicted to categories and hierarchies. We are attached to the thrill of achievement and failure, but we have deceived ourselves because these ups and downs do not bring lasting contentment. They bring anything but that! Yet even as I write these words, I feel the fear that takes hold when I consider another way. For too long I have trained myself to believe that if I am not “better than” then I am nothing. When someone has “proven me wrong” it feels like a small death because that part of myself is now “worthless.” Does this sound familiar?

So, imagine what it feels like to have your entire approach to life “proven wrong.” That’s a huge death! No one is eager to experience that, but this is how we perceive enlightenment when we are entranced by the ego. It sounds very nice in theory – bliss, eternal peace – but what about words like merge and dissolve? Where does that leave “me?” This is one of humankind’s greatest fears: the unknown. What happens to my identity when I merge with the divine? Fear not. In Sadhana, The Path to Enlightenment Swami Rama has this to say: When “the drop of water meets the ocean, it becomes the ocean.” We do not disappear; we unfold into boundlessness. This is true freedom. So, do not fear the loss of individuality. The individual we call self is an illusion: a conglomeration of thoughts, feelings and memories. The true self is far greater with unlimited potential, and we need only shift our attention to experience it. Henry David Thoreau says “the truest life is when we are in our dreams awake.” So let us awaken from this trance! “Turn your face to the sun, and the shadows fall behind you.” This Maori proverb states it perfectly. The ego – our shadows – will always be there. Will we continue to wander in darkness through its endless mazes or will we look to the light and find our way home? The choice is yours.

Huda Musa was born in Israel and spent her young childhood in the Middle East. She obtained her Bachelor’s in New York and began a career in the legal field. Huda eventually moved to the Metro DC area to continue her career in the Defense and Intelligence Industry, and, within years, she was diagnosed with PTSD, Depression, and Anxiety. Instead of resorting to pharmaceuticals, Huda decided to heal her mind-body-spirit-emotions connection through alternative means. This brought her back to the study of the Divine Feminine energy and various forms of holistic therapies such as crystal healing. Her vision is to help all who have experienced trauma achieve their fullest potential, in order for them to turn around, and help others do the same for themselves. 61 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♼ June 2014
