Ancient Geoglyphs Found in Kazakhstan
Ancient geoglyphs have been found in Kazakhstan.
Reminiscent of crop circles, or the more
famous Nazca Lines in Peru, the images, captured on Google Earth, depict over
250 giant earthworks designed to be seen from the sky.
First noticed by an ardent Google Earth fan
in 2007, NASA has now confirmed the pictures, and scientists from around the
world are debating about the possible age and function of the man-made formations.

The Hidden Life of Trees
As reported in
The New York Times, Peter Wohlleben’s book, a
surprise hit titled
“The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate
— Discoveries From a Secret World,” has verified what many nature enthusiasts,
and virtually all native peoples have believed for years: that plants, in this
case trees, have feelings too. Since the publication in 1973 of
“The Secret Life of Plants,” by Peter
enormous research has shown that plants hear, feel, and communicate
in a variety of ways.

Sound Healing with Master Mingtong Gu - Lesson One: "Setting the Chi Field"
Here at Merlian News, some of the staff have been enjoying the online Home Study course "Sound Healing" from
. What we've found is that the first lesson, "Setting the Chi Field" is critical for gaining the most from your
Qi Gong practice. Do it right and each session is deeper and more profound, do it wrong and you may feel better than not having done it at all, but you won't get the best healing and benefit that you could.

Take A Walk on the Wild Side: Encounters With Animals in Nature
Take a Walk on the Wild Side:
Encounters with Animals in Nature
Most of us have had the experience -- wonderful, heart-stopping, sometimes terrifying -- of unexpectedly encountering an animal in the wild. It may be the tranquil sight of deer off in the woods, or a hawk circling in the canyons of Manhattan. It can be scary, as in some of the recent
on the East Coast, or inspire reverence for the raw beauty of the creature sighted.

Action This Day: A Dreamer's Wish For the New Year
Robert Moss writes, "I have just
received the best ever dreamer’s wish for the New Year. It comes from Virginie
Pols, a wonderfully gifted dreamer, artist and teacher of Active Dreaming in
Switzerland. She offers it in both French and English: Que cette année, nous soyons dignes de nos plus grands
rêves! This year, may we be worthy of our biggest dreams! I love this because it reminds us that dreams
action. If we do not take action to honor and embody our
biggest dreams in our lives, they may fly away. To lose a big dream is a sad
thing. It can even amount to losing a vital piece of our soul..."

The Bodhi Tree Bookstore
I fell in love
with The Bodhi Tree the first time I visited the famous LA store in the late
70s. Stuffed to the brim with rare books, crystals, Tibetan flags, Buddha
statues and more, the store quickly became a favorite of mine.
The owners invited conversation, browsing, or
curling up with a book for hours if you wanted.
In an age before Amazon or the Internet, they either stocked or would
order any book you desired, and getting the phone call that “your book is in”
was always a happy event.

New Research Indicates Fish May Be Conscious and Feel Emotions
Earlier this week scientists reported new findings indicating that fish may
have consciousness and feel emotions like mammals. From www.eurekalert.org we read: Researchers... have for the first
time observed an increase in body temperature of between two and four degrees
in zebra fish, when these are subjected to stressful situations. This phenomenon
is known as emotional fever, as it is related to the emotions that animals feel
in the face of an external stimulus and it has even been linked, not without
some controversy, with their consciousness.
