“We are truly expanding the boundaries of our creativity, perception, and understanding, and moving ourselves into the unknown. The container of our lives needs to be bigger to accommodate this evolution and we cannot hold ourselves back with our fears, limited thinking and need for control…
[W]e need to turn our focus towards structuring our inner spiritual life in a way that can support us no matter what happens. The stronger and more organized our inner container is, the better it can feed our outer container with the FAITH and TRUST we need to move into the future. This may be the only thing that keeps you sane this month.
Remember that this is an Artisan year and artisans are masters of chaos, destruction and high levels of creativity. It is useful to tap into the artisan within and to trust that you have what it takes to navigate chaos and destruction, and to turn your life into one beautiful, outrageous and highly creative work of art. Just as any creative project begins with a blank, your life as a creative project will unfold in its right timing with power and purpose as long as you can practice Faith and Trust every step of the way.”

“[O]ne of the hundreds of meditation benefits is developing equanimity, which is the capacity to maintain internal calmness and composure in all moments, instead of being swayed by the opposites. To meet pleasure and pain, praise and blame, good and bad luck, with the same state of mind. This virtue will give you almost “superhuman” powers of clarity and strength through challenges that make most people experience confusion, anxiety or stress.
No matter what is happening outside yourself, or even inside yourself, you have the ability to meet life with presence of spirit and wisdom. You don’t need to be a puppet of your thoughts and feelings – they only have the power you give them. For this truth to be your own, you need the courage and discipline to be present, mindful and open throughout all challenges in your life. And to realize that how you react to events is a choice – however automatic it may be – and not a necessity. You have the power to change it.”
“[I]t seems this ridiculous take on a parallel universe ruled by cats is about as close as anyone will get to an official explanation about the truth of 9/11 – a subject most are too wary of confronting outside of satire and humor.
This is an alternate history of life after the JFK assassination that – far from being goofy and made up – is strangely “exactly like ours.”’
“Our planetary problems are perilous and profound. The U.S. is the most prosperous nation on Earth, yet we have never been more unhealthy. The standard American diet isn’t just making us sick. And it isn’t just inefficient.
It’s outdated tech.
It’s time for a food system reboot. The good news is that version 2.0 is a pretty elementary, albeit profound, upgrade.
Adopting a plant-based, or at least plant-centric approach to your plate is the single most powerful and positively impactful choice you can make as a conscious, compassionate consumer. A choice that will help prevent and reverse disease; reduce your carbon footprint; and preserve the planet for our children and animal friends alike.”
