Stop for a moment and take a deep connected breath. No really stop for a moment and take a deep connected breath. Are you present in the here and now? Or are you off to the next thing racing from one thing to another until you slide into bed at night tired and exhausted from your day? Did you ever stop today and give thanks for being alive one more day?
How do you begin your spiritual practice in the morning?

Somebody asked me the other day, “How are you feeling about your life?’ rather then the standard, “How ya doin?” I had to stop for a moment and ask myself how did I want to answer that question?

People really don’t want to hear that I’m tired, or mad or disappointed if my life isn’t working out the way I think it’s should.

The Essenes were a healing community dating back to 4000 BC. They were known as healers and teachers and had a deep connection to nature and the cosmic realms. They had a love and responsibility for the earth. Their main purpose was to seek peace for themselves and the world.
