Calvin Howard is a visual design artist currently residing in Waterloo Ontario. His images are created through a unique “metamorphosis” using classic photography. Photoshop technology, artistic vision and perhaps..... just a touch of magic. “Each individual work of art beckons us to enter a world unlike our literal reality:A world where hope, dreams, and imagination blend to reflect flexibility, growth, and transformation.” As he explores his own evolving awakenings, we the viewers of Calvin’s art find ourselves moving, also inward, deeper into our own soul journeys. It is Calvin’s sincere intention that all of his art shall inspire: joy, attention, consciousness, and change. http://avadesign.deviantart.com/ 5 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ May 2014

Spiritual Growth Checkpoint:

By Sherri Cortland

10 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥♥ April April 2014 2014 18 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM


I’m an author, but I’m also a business woman. When I’m not writing books and articles about Spiritual growth, I’m the Director of Specialty Sales for a large vacation ownership company in Orlando, Florida; and if there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years it’s that whether a goal is personal or professional, detailed planning is what will get us there. And whether we’re setting a goal for a promotion at work, or a goal to add meditation to our daily routine, the planning is the same: Set your goal/objective and work backwards to where you are now. Here are the three steps I take when setting a goal—see if they resonate with you: 1. Identify Your Goal/Overall Objective and plan for multiple successes along the way Goals and objectives must be specific, and we must set a date to fully accomplish your goal. Sometimes it pays to set minigoals along the way to achieving our ultimate objective; for instance: If meditating for 20 minutes, seven days a week is the goal, start out meditating for five minutes a day, three times a week, and gradually work up to 20 minutes/7 days. Create a calendar as a guideline for increasing the number of minutes and days over a set amount of time and celebrate achieving each mini-goal along the way.

do that is to look at our plan and see where we expected to be, and where we are now. If we haven’t met our ultimate or even our mini-goals, then we need to take a hard look at our plan and adjust it. Maybe we tried to reach our goal in too short a time, or maybe something came up in lives that precluded us from being able to reach our goal. When this happens, re-work the plan and back to the business of working on your goal. 3. Never beat yourself up; always congratulate yourself for what you’ve accomplished Conventional wisdom is that it takes doing something forty times to make form a new habit. Reaching an important goal is similar to creating a positive habit because we need to continually take certain actions before we can enjoy success. But If we stumble on our way to the goal post, so what? We can always re-evaluate and adjust our plan. The important thing is to continue and not give up. It’s also important to congratulate ourselves for the progress we have made, and to give ourselves a pep talk so we get back on track.

Get started! Grab a piece of paper or get on the computer and start building your plan today: Determine a goal or objective that you want to achieve, decide when you want to complete your goal, and what 2.

Health Benefits of Sea Salt

by Helena Reimer

12 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ May 2014


There are many health benefits of sea salt, which include a healthier mindset, improved muscle functions and digestion. However, sea salt can easily be taken in excess amounts, which can have adverse health effects. Therefore sea salt should always be consumed consciously, and in moderation in order to enjoy the health benefits.

and all other muscles in the body. It helps them to open and contract efficiently in order to prevent muscle spasms and cramping.

Sea salt is obtained naturally from the ocean waters. At high tide the ocean waters are collected into large ponds, which are then closed off, and the water is allowed to evaporate naturally from the sun and wind. Listed are a few of the health benefits that sea salt can offer.

Helps with Digestion Salt is needed in order for the body to be able to digest any type of food. It helps the digestive system to excrete an enzyme that is needed to break down the proteins in food. As a result energy levels can be increased.

Antihistamine Sea salt is a natural antihistamine, which can reduce the production of phlegm in those who suffer from allergies and/or asthma. It helps to clear up the lungs and nasal congestion, which helps to make breathing easier. Anti-Depressant It has shown to be able to lift the moods in those who are depressed. It can help to reduce anxiety and stress by maintaining healthy levels of serotonin and melatonin in the brain. It also helps with sleeping, which in turn can help the body and mind to cope better in stressful situations. Therefore sea salt is a great natural antidepressant. Muscle Regulator Sea salt is also essential in helping to regulate the muscles such as the heart

In addition, it helps to maintain a steady heart rhythm, and reduces high blood pressure when taken with water in the correct proportions.

Helps with Weight Loss Sea salt can also help to prevent a layer of excess fats and proteins from building up along the intestinal walls. Any buildup in the intestinal tract can lead to constipation and other digestive problems that eventually can lead to weight gain. Therefore adding sea salt to the diet can help to maintain a healthy weight. Helps with Diabetes Sea salt naturally helps to reduce the insulin needs for those who are diabetic, as it helps to stabilize blood sugar levels. Thus adding salt in moderation can be of benefit for those who suffer from or are at risk for diabetes. http://hubpages.com/profile/LivingFood

We use the same word to describe the mystical phenomenon that happens during sleep and the aspirations that we hold for our unfolding lives. I had a dream. I have a dream.

Courage

An Excerpt from Shiva Speaks by Rashmi Khilnani

You cannot be a true Shiva devotee if you are not prepared to walk on the razor’s edge, if you are not prepared to face your fears one after the other, and thereby overcome or transcend them.

Art by Maryam Morrison https://www.facebook.com/maryammarts 28 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ May 2014


Babaji, I find the world over that even people on a spiritual path of one kind or another, still try and please others in the name of so-called unconditional love. I observe that many of your devotees and the devotees of other powerful enlightened beings chant mantras, perform yagnas, and participate in satsang, and yet continue to be afraid of offending their friends and families, even when this servility on their part leads to a total compromising of their deepest truth, love, and integrity.

one after the other, and thereby overcome or transcend them. In esoteric wisdom you are often taught about the path of the peaceful warrior, the spiritual warrior. This voyage through darkness to light is where the sadguru can help greatly. The word guru means from darkness to light. The outer guru takes one to the inner temple, in which resides the inner guru principle—the “I AM” Presence, the “I am Shiva” presence, the “I am All That Is” energy, and the void of a deep state of meditative consciousness.

Sometimes, a spiritual aspirant walks their talk in one area of their life, while they continue to sacrifice their integrity in the name of keeping the peace, which shows a total lack of courage.

I AM THE GURU OF GURUS

I find that few people will speak their truth in a crowd, particularly if their expression of integrity is in conflict with the views of the mob. We are past December of 2012, and yes people are waking up and great miracles of conscious connection are occurring, but this lack of courage that I am pointing out, here now, continues to be chronic and widespread. How can we shift out of this fear of being and embracing who we are, or of loving others through having to say no to them, or even at times oppose the views or behavior of the people we love? Babaji: Dear humanity, I have come to you through the ages, and each time I have taught you about the tremendous power of the energy of courage. You cannot be a true Shiva devotee if you are not prepared to walk on the razor’s edge, if you are not prepared to face your fears

It is imperative for human beings now to take responsibility for their lives, their words, their deeds, and their cocreations. The ability to respond from conscious-centered awareness comes from keeping a part of your attentive consciousness in the center of your being which is empty, silent, and in the unmanifest realm. The energy and the invocation of Durga Mata, of Lord Shiva, of Lord Hanumanji, or of Archangel Michael instantly bring you into a state of courageous momentto-moment awareness and intuitive, centered knowingness. Once you have accessed this state and become firmly anchored in it, you no longer have to worry about when to speak and when to be quiet, when to fight the good fight and when to harmonize with others through gentle silence or peaceful discussion.

In each moment of now, you just calmly or forcefully, as the case may be, follow your inner guidance and wisdom, and you will not be afraid of the opinion of others or offending others, or trying to please or manipulate them into your way of being or thinking. THE TRISHUL SYMBOL

Meditating on the trishul will take you to a deep place of courageous right thought, word, and deed. When looked upon as Lord Shiva’s weapon of awareness, the trishul destroys the illusion of the three worlds: the physical world, the world of our ancestors, and the world of the mind. All three are transformed by me through the so-called “destruction” into single non-dual plane of existence, which is bliss alone. ow you see dear ones, that there is no true love from a profound spiritual point of view without embracing the energy and practice of deep courage. Love is not for the weak-hearted. The Shiva path is not for the weak-hearted. Samadhi is not for the weak-hearted.

enlightened, are clinging to the past, to the sorrow and sadness of the past. Babaji: I observe that most of humanity is feeling a vast amount of fear, stress, and worry in this ending of the Kali Yuga, which involves tremendous change. I encapsulate the energy that triggers deep courage in your hearts and minds, here now, in these words as I speak them to you. You cannot cross the bridge of fire and water and endure the storms of accelerated transformation without inculcating deep fearlessness in your mind, body, and soul. Your Atma (soul) is essentially fearless. Move forward as a spiritual warrior with peace and love and find the energy to speak your truth with courage and to be silent when necessary, with an equal amount of bravery and single-pointedness. There will be no self-realization and moving into Satya Yuga without a total and absolute level of integrity, where your thoughts match your words, which then match your deeds.

Babaji, I always love your energy of intense razor-like truth that cuts through conditioning, secrets and misinformation on the spiritual path. Thank you for amplifying the energy of bravery and love in our hearts through this dialogue, in this now time, when we are all being intensely challenged to let go of lifetimes of samskaras, memories, attachments, desires, people, and places that cannot come with us, as the light we be and are Especially now, as we move beyond becoming undergo accelerated trans2012 and the great changes that we formation into higher unified consciousall face.

It is exciting that apparently Muniraji has said that you have once again manifested in a physical body on earth, here now, to guide and lead us, your sincere devotees, to a higher octave of our oneness with all that is. I know that, ultimately, you are not a body even though you materialize and dematerialize in one or several physical forms on earth, from time to time. Could you share with us any information about how to access your energy more powerfully here now, whether it be a bodily form of the oneness that you represent and are, or your energy in its transcendental state, so that we can reduce our fear and come into our knowingness, with the serenity of moving forward in trust and moment-to-moment awareness. Babaji: My children of the light, you know very well that the darkness, the fear, and the ignorance are illusionary. However, you continue to be completely mesmerized and caught up in the drama of Maya: of polarity and the demons of fear-based living and being. I have taught you to repeat the Maha Mantra, “Om Namah Shivaya.” It is there to purify your mind and bring it to stillness—a centeredness that exists at all times, even as you interact with the world. You know also dear ones, if you allow yourself to connect to an image of me that makes your heart sing, or even in some cases one that may be frightening, you will be able to access my energy with the purity of your heart’s intention with ease and grace. Just chasing after my body form as the ultimate truth is missing the point of that which I am. As you

know dear ones, I am not the body; I am Supreme Being containing the energy of the manifest and the unmanifest at the same time. Ultimately, I am beyond time and space and the truth is that “you and I are one.” I have full consciousness of unity, of my I AMness, which you have forgotten. You now are beginning to remember, once again, as you wake up to whom you are. I am the mirror of who you be. There is no point in saying that you are a devotee of Babaji, of Lord Shiva, while being out of integrity in thought, word, and deed. It is useless to talk about practicing universal dharma while not having the courage to stop clinging to those things, ideas, and people that your inner knowingness, through me or from within yourself, is asking you to release from your reality. Whether I appear to you in bodily form or transcendentally or symbolically, it is all the same. It is ultimately you connecting to the deepest part of your “I AM” presence which, as you know, is within you. The cave in which I manifested miraculously as an 18-year-old youth (not born of a woman), on the gufa (cave) side of the Guatami Ganga in Haidakhan, is symbolic of the deepest part of your inner space. This is your “temple of the within,” which is at one with all that is manifest and which is ultimately supreme, unmanifest, “isness,” and silence. Ask me and I will answer. Call me and I will appear. Be sincere and my many gifts shall unfold in your life 31 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ May 2014


Heartfelt sincerity is a key to accessing me. Your purity of heart will determine how much of my presence you will be able to bear without going into total terror. The terror only arises from a heart and a mind that are moving indifferent directions to truth, love and simplicity. If you only pray and do not work for the service of mankind, you are not a true devotee of mine. If you only work and do not bring in the reverence of the divine (which is All That Is) through sacred conversation with the divine (which is prayer), celestial singing to the divine (which is Kirtan), ecstatic dancing in gratitude and praise to the divine (which is celebration), then you are not really following that which I have come to teach you. Thank you, Babaji. It is so easy for us to forget the simplicity of your wondrous teachings. I suppose what we have to remember, Maha prabuji,is that we eat every day for the whole of our lives and so why should we forget to chant every day, to show praise and gratitude every day to the sacred elements: earth, water, fire, air, and ether, and to achieve unity consciousness from an ocean of devotion through repeating the Maha Mantra, “Om Namah Shivaya,” or for that matter any mantra that resonates with our hearts.

For some of you, through the ages, I have recommended actually meditating at the cremation ground until you begin to have the realization that ultimately you are not the body. You are a transcendental being and becoming, and your soul energy continues its journey in another form and then another and another. If you want to transcend deep fear, then be with the fear, accept it, release denial, and look at it in the face. Keep meditating on the cause of the terror or anxiety, or keep looking at it and you will find that, if you breathe into the experience and allow it, you will transcend this angst and come to a place, on the other side of the fear tunnel, of great peace and in some cases, bliss. The only way to overcome the fear of the unknown is to face the unknown, step into it and have a thorough experience of it. It is rather amusing for me to observe this phenomenon amongst my human children.

For of course when one experiences the unknown, it transforms and becomes the known. I, Babaji, find this extremely funny, don’t you? One observes that many of you, like my dear Rashmi, are at times captivated with making themselves totally frightened through their supremely Babaji: My little chelas, devotees (a little vivid imagination as a form of excitement joke since there is no one leading and and entertainment. no one following at the highest level of truth), the biggest fear, in third-dimen- Rashmiji, you and your fellow brothers sional reality on earth, is the demise of and sisters may continue this egocentric the body, the physical form.

Yes, yes, “the Rash one,” I can hear your mind asking me how to break this socalled bad habit; for as you have seen for yourself, my channeling angel, once you co-create creative excitement in your life, your need to manifest chaos as nightmares, in your case, is automatically released. Ultimately the supreme silence that you be is neither excitement nor a lack of it. It just is. P.S. So with fear, remember to accept it, embrace it and let it become one with the light which you are within, and thereby transmute it. A great example of the fear becoming bliss is my beloved chela, Leonard Orr’s cold water rebirthing. Rashmi, Amravati, and many others have experienced immersing themselves bit by bit into freezing cold water, and going through pain and terror and then coming into states of bliss and ecstasy—the polarity.

If You’re in Control of Your Life, Stop! Don’t Read This! By Sara Chetkin

http://www.thehealingcurvebook.com/

Things don’t always turn out for the best. You can cross all of the t’s and dot all of the i’s and still things don’t work out. Two days ago I was six weeks pregnant. Today I am not. Miscarriage is the absolute antithesis to things working out. A pregnancy promises joy, laughter and love, and during a miscarriage life itself falls away from you. For me it was a slow trickle, a gentle waning from full to empty. Yesterday was the worst; every hour announcing in slow unwavering progress the inevitability, the finality of death. And how undignified to experience this misfortune in the realm of the toilet bowl! It all seemed so wrong. Yes, I cried. I had all the normal emotions we go through when in grief. Most of you know what I mean because things don’t always work out. It can’t be denied, this is very dark territory; but I’m intrigued by the notion that we can move through dark moments in perfect peace, though we may experience a torrent of emotions in the process. That is because life is not about what’s happening around us. It’s about what’s happening within us. So, yes, we may not get our dream job or our kids might not get into their chosen college. What’s important, though, is how we move through these struggles. It’s not that we should persevere or bear our crosses bravely. Howev-

er, in happy times we can cultivate peace of mind and strength. Then in darker times, we can lean on these steadfast pillars.

I’ve worked out a method towards that end. Part one – allow your life to unfold. My goal with my spiritual practice is to develop a state of mind that is always allowing. In resistance, I don’t only push away the bad. I stand in opposition to life itself. Life is ups and downs. There is no avoiding that; but you can avoid the emotional eddies. We get stuck, thinking things must be just so or we’ll be unhappy. This is a weak position. No one can conquer the unconquerable. You won’t always avoid suffering. Yet we persist in our techniques to manifest abundance, health and wealth in our lives, never recognizing the blunder: that attempting to manifest is attempting control and attempting control is resisting. With our constant outward focus, we remain unconscious of the vast and potent energy that courses through all of us. Why not let this divine intelligence take over? Can we find the courage to experience life without meddling in the outcome? It takes a great deal of trust - things might not work out. True! They might not. Or they might work out far better. 37 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ May 2014


Last night I was talking to my husband about this very subject. “How do you know that things will work out in the end?” he asked. “I don’t know that they will.” I said. “What I do know is that I am always cultivating peace and working towards an attitude of allowing. So, I hope that ‘in the end’ I have developed this attitude to such a degree that it is a habit. Then, no matter what happens, I can approach it with equanimity. I will always see the light at the end of the tunnel.” If we can manage to do this, through meditation and spiritual practice, then even as we move through painful situations, we will have a wonderful foundation upon which to lay our sorrows. Peace will be our companion. Sadness might be there too; or anger or guilt. But remember, and here’s part two, we are not our emotions. Emotions are transient. They come and go. Some stick around longer than others, but eventually everything passes. Knowing this, we can find the courage to move through any situation with peace in our hearts, even as we experience grief, anger or fear. Last night I had a dream. I was propelled into the clouds from a vast and chaotic ocean. As I broke through the surface, all was white and peaceful. Resting on one of the clouds was a little gray teddy bear. I reached for the toy and gently returned to a green and luscious earth. When I awoke in the morning, I knew: there will be other babies. Life is wonderful. We can revel in its splendors and rejoice in its beauty. Do it when you can; and when happiness eludes you, remember: all things pass. 38 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ May 2014

THE LITMUS TEST: FOLLOWING THE WINDING TRAIL OF OUR CORE INTEGRITY By Dr. Barry Hammer

“Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.” Spencer Johnson

Many years ago, when I was in high school chemistry lab, I was assigned to do a litmus test to determine where various chemicals fell on the continuum from acidic to alkaline or other base composition. I now view that litmus test as a metaphor for learning to discern how to live in harmonious alignment with my individual and relational core integrity from moment to moment. I have found that relying exclusively on analytical reasoning and apparent factual information of the mind, along with sensory data, cannot always provide me with the best possible insight into the experiential truth and energy flow of the moment, and how to appropriately function or flow in flexible, dynamic, rightful attunement with it. Instead, I have found that sometimes I feel intuitively guided to go beyond basing decisions entirely

on available factual information by discerning what options of perception and action seem relatively consistent or inconsistent with an invisible subtle energy pulse of rightful integrity, involving nonselective integrated openness to my whole experiential truth and my naturally self-consistent indivisible whole real being, recognized as a distinctive energy tone of inner peace, warmhearted caring, empathic compassion, regenerative life energy, and lightness of spirit, in contrast to an antithetical energy tone of queasiness, biased presumptions, selective viewing, lack of self-consistency with the intrinsic wholeness and rightful goodness of my being and everyone’s being, inner agitation, coldhearted callousness, degenerative discord, as well as heaviness and darkness of spirit.

41 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ May 2014


When my perception and action is rightfully aligned with my heartfelt intuitive core integrity, then I feel that I am truly honoring the intrinsic goodness and preciousness of life or reality in myself, other individuals who I encounter, and the all-inclusive whole of being, rather than distorting, degrading, or cheapening my own truth and the truth of others by divorcing or distancing my perception and action from the real energy and experience flowing within and around me. Our core integrity is naturally inclined to be empathically understanding of and compassionately responsive to the legitimate needs and concerns of others because it is a relational self, a relational center, in contrast to the ego as an illusory, dualistically separated, divisive, narcissistically self-preoccupied sense of self or inner voice. Attunement with my intuitively discerned core integrity heightens my receptive openness to limitless expansive possibilities and flexible creative insights, whereas my energies, options, and resources feel more blocked, fixated, contracted, constricted, and restricted when I permit myself to be distracted by narcissistic ego mind chatter, biased preconceived presumptions, demanding expectations, as well as rigid, fear-oriented modes of perception and action. Core integrity makes me feel more alert and grounded in real life energy experience, like following an inner GPS, compass, or beacon, whereas preconceived presumptions make me feel cut off from the actual flow of energy experience.

42 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ May 2014

We intuitively know that we are living in core integrity when we are willing to relate to, and cherish, what is actually experientially real in self and others rather than pursuing some kind of presumptive “ought to be” or desired “should be,” distorting our view of self and others by projecting various kinds of extraneous definitions, interpretations, idealized or disparaging images, and judgmental demanding expectations, and exploiting others to aggrandize our own narcissistic egos, as in Martin Buber’s distinction between I-Thou and I-It relationships. When I am expansively connected to the relational flow of energy experience within and around myself, then I experience greater caring warmth of heart and vitality, whereas when I step out of that connective relational flow into narcissistic mind chatter, then I experience more inner coldness, inner numbing or deadening, and more blockage, constriction, or contraction of my own energies. This reminds me of melting/defrosting ice in my refrigerator, many years ago, (when the refrigerator needed to be cleaned out in preparation for the next tenant of a rented apartment that I was vacating), by repeatedly pouring hot water on the ice until large chunks of it suddenly came loose, all at once. Metaphorically speaking, I find that the warmth of expansive, empathically caring connection to other individuals and undistracted attentiveness to situations happening around me melts away much of the fearful, contracted, coldness and heavy denseness of my energies.


When I am abiding in the flow of my own core integrity, then I sometimes become more attuned to the joyful “song” and “dance” or vibratory rhythmic pulse of my own essential being, my own heart and soul, my true “perfect pitch.” However, resistively trying to escape from the natural imperfections or “rough edges” of life experience only produces an unhealthy process of inner and outer conflict, whereas I find that inner and outer healing naturally takes place when I show flexible loving compassion for the stuck and sticky places within and between us. I find that the best way to bring healing to my own inner pain and negativity is embrace it with love so that it can be consciously restored to the natural wholeness of my being and thereby healed, whereas when I negatively judge, blame, reject, and oppose my own fear, pain, and negativity, it fights me back, exacerbating disruptive inner and outer discord. I believe that the best way to compassionately transform for the better our individual lives, personal relationships, local communities, particular social networks, and the whole world, is to select options that reflect alignment with our own distinctive, dynamically flexible, energy pulse of core integrity and ethical responsibility. For example, this involves selecting or developing lifestyles, careers, shared relational activities, consumer spending patterns, and voting behaviors that promote compassion, equity, sustainability, and expanded opportunities for everyone, rather than depleting individual and shared resources,

opportunities, and freedoms in an unsustainable, contracting, manner. Like exercising a muscle to strengthen it, the only way to develop our intuitive core integrity, so that it will be available for us when we really need it, is to gradually practice tuning into the distinctive energy feeling tone of the “heart” core, center, depth, or essential level of our own being when the analytical calculations and apparent factual information of the mind and the sensory data of the body do not seem able to provide us with sufficiently clear, penetrating, and reliable insight into a particular situation, encounter, or decision that we are considering.

Climate Change: Another Perspective by Douglas Stuart, PhD

53 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ May 2014


Like the old joke about the weather, so with climate change - everybody talks about it, but nobody does anything about it. We feel helpless… but are we? Let’s look at it from a systems perspective. Consider the Earth as a complex living system, Gaia, and human activity in this Anthropocene age as the greatest continuous influence on Gaia. Further, suppose that consciousness is 1) the basis of all life and 2) an unbroken quantum field. It’s everywhere at once, all the time, as illustrated by the mysterious phenomenon of quantum entanglement. A quantum particle can be entangled with (infinitely many) others, so that whatever change happens to one entangled particle anywhere is reflected instantly in all its entangled partners wherever they are, even at the farthest reaches of the universe! Consider the global entanglement of human beings; someone flaps his big mouth here and a war starts on the other side of the world! As physicist Brian Greene says, “…our universe is not local.” (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/ physics/spooky-action-distance.html) If the universe is not local, then consciousness is not local. And, if consciousness is not local, then everything is intimately entangled. Everything is one big system, interconnected, interdependent and in terrible disequilibrium. Science has essentially confirmed a version of Jung’s collective unconscious, and realizing this opens up a new discussion.

54 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ May 2014

Since human consciousness is collective, non-local, then changing how I think affects, in some small way, how you think, and vice versa, and how we all think affects Gaia, of whose consciousness we are each a part. (Clearly, how we act affects Gaia; there is no longer any question of that. Is it such a stretch to extend this to the thoughts and emotions out of which our actions spring?) Each of us is essentially a microclimate, with an obvious effect on our immediate environment and a small but real effect on the total, the macroclimate. It is quite impossible to separate the billions of microclimates from the macroclimate. That is, the macroclimate is essentially the sum of all that happens on and in the earth, its atmosphere and its oceans. The mind, the consciousness, of Gaia is traumatized by the thoughtless destructive actions of its anthro-inhabitants. And this is reflected in its earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, in its storms and its changing seas, its warming atmosphere, melting glaciers, shrinking rivers, and deteriorating soil.


And this is what the indigenous peoples have been saying for a long time, much more simply. We’ve made our mother sick. So, the greatest impact we can have on climate, to correct the imbalance, to heal Gaia, is to change our own thinking (and actions), to change the microclimate of ourselves and radiate out in healing waves to correct the macroclimate. Each of us has the same power and the same responsibility. Gaia is very strictly a reflection of the mental and emotional climate of humanity, responding to and mirroring the turmoil of our lives and cultures, our personal, national, and global conflicts, our anger and hatred and greed and violence against ourselves and against our Gaian home, the Earth. Forget the governments, the global corporations, the international organizations; our survival is up to each of us. Change your mind; change the world!

Sacred Space, Mer-Ka-Ba and the Ancient Ways By Huda Musa

59 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ May 2014


Have you ever wondered how you can live your purpose? Could our dreams be the roadmap to our goals? We sometimes question how accurate our “gut” instincts are and how we can follow our inspirations. We wonder if they are silly dreams or if there is something higher guiding us. Can we humans communicate without the use of words and with the language of the sacred space in our heart?

tists at HeartMath have proved that the human heart generates the largest and most powerful energy field of ANY organ in the body. This electromagnetic field is is about eight to ten feet in diameter, and resembles the form of the TORUS, which is a unique and primal shape in the Universe. The ancient Melchizedek tradition (as taught in the School of Remembering), helps us to remember who we truly are, for we are much more than this illusionary reality. We are to Re-remember the Ascension process and awaken to a higher state of consciousness. These ways remind us of our innate ability to create and manifest things from our heart effortlessly, for we are all creator/god within. This allows us to unleash our HUMAN POTENTIAL and inner Human PSYCHIC abilities. Further, we learn how to live life with accordance to the true understanding of how the Law of the Universe works.

Ancient texts says, humankind was blessed with a sacred language that all peoples of the earth knew. Afterwards, we were split into hundreds of spoken languages, creating SEPARATION, keeping each of us in our own little world. As time went on, the ability to enter the SACRED SPACE of the HEART and communicate with our fellow brothers and sisters was lost- we simply forgot we had this ability. We have always had this space within our heart, and it is still there NOW. This space allows for CONSCIOUS CREATION. It allows us to live a reality of LOVE, wisdom, joy and understanding. Every night when we sleep, we enter These teachings allow us to remember this sacred space in our heart. Do you our intimate connection with the Creator RE-MEMBER who you truly are? who lives within the sacred space of our heart, and to live this connection here on The sacred space of the heart, is a time- earth now.

Ascension can be realized without leaving this world and while being awake to all that is in our reality. The outer world is but a reflection and creation of an inner world that has long been forgotten within our own Hearts. This power is your birthright and your heritage. “In the fortified city of the imperishable, our body, there is a lotus and in this lotus a tiny space: What does it contain that one should desire to know it? As vast as this space without is the tiny space within your heart: heaven and earth are found in it, fire and air, sun and moon, lightening and the constellations, whatever belongs to you here and below and all that doesn’t, all this is gathered in that tiny space within your heart.” ~Chandogya Upanishad 8.1.2-3
