#3. Grant that I may not so much seek to be loved as to love.

For years I had this poem memorized and would repeat it every night when I went to bed or whenever I awoke in the middle of the night.  Line by line, this prayer gave me the simple keys to peace and joy. Read more »

Excavate Your Inherent Perfection

September 23, 2010 By: Miranda Macpherson Category: Mantra, Malas, Meditation, Mind Body Spirit, Teachings


Your spirituality will serve either to help free you from your mistaken self-concepts or it will subtly reinforce them by deepening the notion that you must ‘become’ perfect through endless prayers, meditations and practices. The intention you give your spirituality will determine where it takes you. Direct your spirituality not to becoming something different, but to unwinding what you have assimilated that is false.

Questions for the Universe

April 16, 2010 By: Matsya Siosal Category: Living with Intention, Mind Body Spirit


Often in meditation I go inward seeking an answer or clue to a question that thinking will not deliver. As I close my eyes on this earth,  my inner eyes open into the universe. All around me stretching forever, trillions of stars sparkle like diamonds against velvet black space and fiery, milky galaxies bob in the myriad dimensions. I let words go and slip into mystery, I am a soul poised to take flight, heading out into the real information superhighway in search of pure knowing. Read more »

May my Life be a Prayer

March 30, 2010 By: celedra Category: About Us, Living with Intention

May my Life be a Prayer – a year ago in June, during my birthday,  I prayed this prayer.

I had decided to read Stephen Levine’s wonderful book, A Year to Live.  After 15 years of hospice work and some of the most profoundly moving weekend workshops of my life with Stephen and Ondrea, I am well aware of the very impermanent nature of this lifetime.

What is my highest purpose?  How can I serve?

The answer came – it was to create a central resource for sacred living.  A place to come for solace, respite, guidance, inspiration, community.  I love the Huffington Post and could see this blog with the double bar of topics filled with video, sacred art, conscious relationships, parenting, teachings, yoga.  A sanctuary to rest in, a community to learn from and to share with.

Today it is a bit over 9 months later.  We have given birth.  I am in awe, again, of the magic and mystery of creation.  I am so blessed to have Matsya, a treasure beyond words,  as co-creator on this blessed journey.  We thank all of you who so enthusiastically support and value this vision and bless all of us on this sacred path of life.  May our lives be a prayer!
