Netzach; Spiritual Endurance

One of the great wisdoms on the spiritual path is netzach, meaning spiritual endurance. It may seem trivial to compare spiritual endurance with long-distance running, but the truth is that when one is running a long-distance race, one must have a certain pace that supports its completion. One also has to have motivation, which is where the word faith comes in. Faith is not something to believe because someone said so. Faith is based direct experience. Once one experiences inner truth and the soul, then, even though one may not feel it in the moment, one has faith that the truth is there. […]

Pasta Primavera – Phase 1

This reminds us of sitting outside a quaint outdoor cafe, soaking in the sunshine, fresh air and exquisite cuisine. Olives and sundried tomatoes add a punchy, distinct texture, feel and flavor to any dish but they are particularly savory when serving as the base of pasta sauces. Add basil and parsley and you have this wonderful, warm richness that takes a pasta dish from good to outstanding. The lightness of zucchini noodles adds a lovely balance and makes this dish a joy for everyone in your family on a late Sunday afternoon or a romantic dinner for two on a […]

Truth

When you look at the world today, you can’t help but notice that there are very few people living in the truth. We can blame it on the politicians, but the politicians reflect the population. Living in the truth doesn’t mean you have to be enlightened. It’s more about living in integrity with the best you can in terms of an inner truth. The more you meditate and do the Six Foundations, the more you are in touch with the inner truth. It is  just what happens. Then living in the truth, which is not about any ideas, concepts, religion, […]

Guru Tattva; The Divine Principle in Every Person

Guru Tattva is a yogic term for the Divine principle in every person. To really understand the spiritual life or the spiritual path, it is all about this one thing. One religion is a scoop of water from the pond. Another religion is another scoop of water from the pond. We can have another scoop of water, but we are not talking about the pond. The Guru Tattva is the pond. Is that which is prior to the religion. It is that which exists within you as you.  The principle of the spiritual path is to realize Guru Tattva. This […]

Go Organic -Authentically

Organic foods are produced without using genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or toxic chemicals. Organic production methods are vastly superior to commercial, chemical-based agriculture in producing foods with optimum nutrition. Foods produced by organic farming practices exhibit improved vitamin and mineral nutrition, as well as superior taste, shelf life, phytochemical and antioxidant content, and stronger and more organized SOEFs (Subtle Organizing Energy Fields). Investigations are showing that wild-crafted foods (foods harvested from wild plants) have the highest nutritional content, with organic foods next, and conventionally grown foods last. The USDA periodically publishes data on the nutritional content of food. Historically, since […]
