The Light During the Dark of the Year by Tim Walter

If you’ve visited my YouTube channel recently you will know that as a house healer and alternative life coach I help people move their lives towards a greater sense of well-being. That means helping them move from a state of mind that is troubled by aspects of their seeming external environment towards one of harmony, peace and flow. I say, ‘seeming’ as when we use the spiritual perspective on our lives (for which also read “symbolic”) we can consider all aspects of our individual realities as being a part of us.

To a Boy Who Found Out It Wasn’t Santa Who Brought the Presents by Robert Moss

I remembered a conversation in which I suggested that the original Santa was a shaman of the Sami, a reindeer-herding people of Lapland, reputed to have the power to call up the winds and fly through the air, and that the reason his coat is red is that it was the flayed skin of a reindeer. I have seen Sami drums with images of a shaman flying through the three tiers of the shamanic cosmos on a sleigh pulled by reindeer. But while there is a rich ethnography on Sami shamanism, I could think of no source that would be suitable for a young boy. So I took on the assignment of writing my own version of the first Santa, addressed to a boy in danger of losing his belief in Christmas magic.

The Spirit of Christmas by Annamaria Hemingway

| by Annamaria Hemingway

All the rituals involved at Christmas and the image of the tree sparkling with light is a mythological celebration that gives rise to a form of living psychic energy, which manifests from the ancient symbolism of the light. So, as we gather with our families and friends, and exchange gifts around the Christmas tree, we have the opportunity to reflect and rekindle the magical childhood awareness within ourselves of the true spirit of Christmas. For as the old year comes to a close, and a new year heralds unbound possibilities for growth and celebration of life, we are reminded of the birth that brought “tidings of great joy” and the promise of the everlasting life of the soul.

Life After Life: An Investigative Look at Reincarnation by Don Mordasini

As we age the prospect of dying becomes a reality we must deal with. For some, this prospect is very frightening. Many of my clients start worrying about growing old or dying during their middle age. Others tell me they just put off the thought until a later time. Yet others try to distract themselves with any number of activities. As I write this the August cover of Time Magazine depicts a worried man in his fifties, with the footnote, “two billion dollars are being spent annually on testosterone treatments.” The money spent on anti-ageing products could probably feed all of the world’s impoverished people, yet we use it to ward off fear of dying.

The Year Ahead – 2021: A Time of Change by Stephen Thomson

The universal numerological cycle for the next year is the fifth cycle. The keywords that I use for describing the fifth cycle are “the year of change.” What is present at the beginning rarely exist by the end of this cycle. Sometimes change begins at the very beginning and continues throughout the year. The shifts can also occur on and off during the year. This cycle can be very intense and challenging at the same time as one has to keep up with the twists and turns that may come up along the journey. Whether it’s on a personal or universal level, what must be important is that the emerging energy represents our need for change as it is already in motion in our minds or the world, which will now manifest in the form of transformation over the next year.

Letters to a Dead Friend about Zen by Brad Warner

The night that bestselling author and Zen teacher Brad Warner learned that his childhood friend Marky had died of cancer at the age of forty-eight, he had just arrived in Hamburg, Germany where he was scheduled to give a talk to a group of Zen students. It was the last thing he felt like doing. Instead, Warner was thinking about all of the things he never said to his friend, since topics like spirituality and meditation didn’t exactly fit with the passion for punk rock they had shared since they were young.
