New this Issue:
"Awakening Human Potential," something that has been happening in our world since the beginning of time... So what's new? This isn't a new concept, or is it? Maybe we are what is new within it.
We are all in a place within humanity that is in question. What question you might ask? Just in the energy of question. We are for the most part asking for answers, from our government leaders, big businesses, our spiritual leaders, healers, practitioners, our family and ourselves.
If we really settle into it all, we can feel that there are no definitive answers.
We are walking into a world that we are told will change in 2012. Right now, we are feeling the energetic finger print of our world changing.
What is it that we as a collective are really looking for? Is it a sense that someone out there has the answer—so that we are safe? Do we feel that God/Universe/Source (my loving nickname GUS) even has the answer? What is the inherent flaw in the last two questions that I feel is so true to so many that I connect with?
I was recently at a workshop where the facilitator expressed that the age of enlightenment—what we "think" enlightenment is—is coming to its end. We jumped in with the intellectual safety that brought us to open the door to the next step of going beyond what we know, we no longer have the wiggle room to intellectualize the age of enlightenment. We soon will have to leave behind what we know and embody what is and what is to come. To fully embrace ourselves, all of us, and put to rest the constant contradictions that we live in—within ourselves.
These core contradictions are becoming apparent, sometimes painfully apparent. During this time of integration and transition it is important to live and walk what we now know and stay open to the slight possibility that we really don't know. We've read the books, we've taken the trainings, but are we are ready for the next step? Most people "think so," but where has this thinking gotten us? This next step is one that is energetically changing our world faster than most are willing to keep up with, challenging us within every moment to live to our highest human potential.
I have been told that Mother Earth supports us, she matches our energetic finger print as a collective, and reflects back to us ourselves. Let's continue to see who we are within her and be the path to bring the age of enlightenment to its next evolutionary phase.
Our next issue is "What Moves You?" I hope that everyone will contemplate their truest meaning to this question and find what moves us closer and closer to reach the human potential that this issue speaks of.
We have a full journal this issue, welcome back to everyone and I'm happy that everyone is able to participate this issue. And a special thank you to Judy for her love of frogs. I hope that everyone enjoys their visit in this issue.
Thanks to Evelyn Rysdyk our Modern Shamanic Living columnist, for her artwork featured on the cover of this issue. She is an exceptionally gifted artist and healer and with her digitally created work, I knew that this was exactly the expression of awakening human potential. Please enjoy her column on page 10 and her offerings in the Spirit Passages ads found on page 24 and 40.
