21 Days of Emptiness
by Terri Smallwood
The author spends her summer re-energizing her spirituality through meditation.
Its high summer in Canada. The days are long
and full. Im not working for money these days, but instead have decided to
invest some time into being at home with my kids. It was not a hard decision to
make they are 6 and 1 and like most small people are funny and captivating.
Hanging out with them is a mixture of hilarity and only barely contained chaos.
Its a nonstop roller coaster of trips to the park, the swimming pool,
play-dates and baseball games. Cooking and laundry happen too, but I try to block
out those memories. My oldest has been home from school for two weeks now. My
baby just learned to walk. Were tanned. Im exhausted.
Zen and the Brain
by Gregory Ellison
A number of
books in recent years have attempted to show how advances in modern science are
breaking down the barriers between materialistic science and spirituality. Books
like The Tao of Physics and The Dancing Wu Li Masters, for example,
explain how quantum physics describes a universe in which human consciousness
plays an active role in creating reality. In this regard, Zen and the Brain takes a
radically different approach to the relation between science and spirituality.

The Sun, the Moon and the stars, indeed
all those heavenly bodies that we make a study of here at the Linda
Goodman-inspired forums and e-zine, exist in peace and harmony. Mars remains a
fire-hot dynamo but does not bang into the Moon while speeding along the
highway. Mercury, when retrograde, continues to be as irascible as ever, but
does it dent Venus just for the heck of it? They are all distinct, occupying
their personal spaces that none else dare tamper with, yet they display this
enormous respect for others space and, in doing so, perform the most perfectly
synchronised ballet that one can ever see.

Digging Into Life on
My Summer Vocation
I usually drive
my own vehicle on my archaeological outings, at least to the airport, but this
time was different. I knew I would be going to an island in the Pacific off the
western coast of Vancouver Island. What I didnt know was exactly how or when I
would get there or which direction I would be going when I eventually left

September Star Watch
by Frances Firesong Ellison
September, dominated by work-centered Virgo, is traditionally
the month of going back to school, bringing in the harvest, and getting down to
business. The lazy days of summer fade into the background as autumn leaves
begin to turn and cool breezes remind us that its time to buckle down and
begin preparing for the winter ahead. Overall, it looks like September will
be a fairly positive month, especially for those who had trouble communicating
