Julie Alexander – We all put on a mask and live our lives this way. We do not show our true face to the world. We are afraid to be ourselves.
Years and years of brainwashing and peer pressure cause this to happen. We are all conditioned from birth, conditioned to be afraid, to be afraid of being ourselves, we are crushed and lose sight of what we are.
Our self-esteem diminishes; our decisions come from a cold and sad place. We are manipulated and controlled from birth. Our true power is hidden and taken away from us. Our parents have also been conditioned and brain washed by their parents, society and the education system and so it goes on.
Those who try to show their true selves are ridiculed and outcast until they conform to society’s rules and regulations. After time we believe in our mask more than we believe in our true selves. We deny what is in our hearts and minds.
The Angels – Your planet earth continues to grow, much in the same ways you do. She stretches her awareness into greater love. She shakes and erupts to release dense and stuck energies. She, like you, wishes to allow love to flow through every pore and vein of her celestial body, but like you sometimes movement, growth, and change are necessary. She loves you very much. She never wants to hurt you. She warns you before disasters and attempts to create peaceful movements.
Nonetheless, she is subject to the collective consciousness. You, the human race are cells on the body of this earth. Your energy is within hers and her energy is within you. When the collective consciousness has harbored pent up energy for too long, she must release it for you. When she is about to erupt, you may feel as if you are as well, if you have not already risen into a more natural and easy flow of energy and emotion within your own hearts.

Matt Valentine – Zen has a rich tradition of storytelling. Actually, just about the entire human race has a rich history of storytelling. Why do we like stories so much? Because we can identify with them. Stories, whether real or not, pull and tug at our emotions. We connect personally with stories.
Whereas someone can tell us that it’s important for us to appreciate and care for our parents, another person can tell us a story about the life of a daughter and her mother, and about how neither could ever see eye-to-eye all the way up until the day that the mother passed away.
Even if you aren’t a daughter, but a son, or if it was your father whom you had that type of relationship with, or even if you just feel like you don’t appreciate your mother or father (or both) enough, regardless, a story like that can touch you in a way that someone simply telling you, “hey, it’s important that you appreciate your parents”, could never do.
We need to experience something directly in order to really learn what it’s about. This is wisdom, as opposed to knowledge much like you’d acquire in a class at school, a parrot-like type of learning that serves as a nice basis for establishing the necessary foundation for certain larger tasks, but which can serve little real use elsewhere particularly in advancing your well-being.

Carolanne Wright – Usually we don’t think of our immune system as highly intelligent and flexible, but rather, a mechanical process that (we hope) will take care of business in the background with minimal issue. In the world of science, however, this orientation radically changed in the 80s when it was discovered that the immune system is actually a “floating brain” — where immune cells throughout the body respond to chemical messages. Incredibly, researchers found that every thought, mood, sensation and expectation we have is relayed to our immune cells through these messengers, thereby wielding incredible power over how efficient (or not) our body is able to fight disease.
Taking it a step further, scientists began to explore how this process is influenced by meditation. What they found is inspiring.
