Saying YES to Life

Saying YES to Life

                        by Barbara Ann Briggs

 

Years ago, while on a walk in New York city with an actor friend of mine, he turned to me and asked, “What do you think is the most important word in the English language?” I stopped and pondered, then said, “Love.”

He shook his head from side to side. The most important word is, “yes”.

“Yes” is certainly a beautiful word. The question and…

Be Calmer with these Four Simple Tips

If you're like everyone else right now, you're cooped up in a house with limited things to do. You're probably sitting around more than you would normally, eating more than you would normally and getting down right cranky about it!  Your gym, yoga studio, pool have all been closed and your sanity workout is off limits at a time when you need it most! What to do? Well, first, let's establish that we are all energy beings living in an energy world.  As energy beings we can absorb other energy…

Allegory of the Long Spoons

« The allegory of the long spoons is a parable that shows the difference between heaven and hell by means of people forced to eat with long spoons. »

« In each location, the inhabitants are given access to food, but the utensils are too unwieldy to serve oneself with. In hell, the people cannot cooperate, and consequently starve. In heaven, the diners feed one another across the table and are sated. »

« Given the same level playing field one group of…

Living Bond

dare i declare that we'll always be one

that in your soul breathes an echo of mine

that our paths will fusion down the line

that this living bond cannot come undone

dare i reveal how we have been misled

by values that want us to be apart

told only a fool could follow their heart

by demons of greed, reason, and hatred

could you forgive me for being doubtful

of accepting the fate of a prophet

and having been of you so…

How to Cope When Covid-19 is Stirring Up Your Worst Fears

The mental health toll of Covid-19

As all the experts talk about the serious physical health risks of the Covid-19 pandemic, I want to talk about the equally serious risks to our mental health. The fact is that this pandemic is stirring up our deepest, most primordial fears around survival.

Every human being has these primal survival fears – of death, of being alone, of not having enough money, and of living in a dangerous world. Many of us in the West have been fortunate…

Jupiter and Saturn: The Big Picture of LIfe

                            The Big Picture of Life:

 

The Tango of Jupiter and Saturn, and how they shape our destiny

 

 

There is one side of us that enthuses about possibilities, and aims at big things, creates plans for how to make them happen.

 

Jupiter's symbol means "soul over matter". What does our soul really want, and rejoice in contemplating, for the rest of our life?

 

If our lives are a story, from birth to death, a…

Arriving At the Promised Land: What on Earth Will it Take? Part Two

Part Two

 

The Teachings of Jesus The Christ, Reincarnated

How do we start to journey inward from the madness of the mind to the clarity of the soul? To begin to heal at the level of the collective human psyche, we must first return to love; for without love we have no moral compass as we trek through the wilderness. It seems we have not come such a long way in our ability to love one another and ourselves over the last two thousand years since Jesus The Christ walked…

Recreating our Lives. How to Carry on in a Changing World.

As chaos unfolds around us, many of us are forced to adapt…quickly. We are in a time that requires us to recreate our lives, and in doing so, no better place to look then the artist’s process, as artists create every day. We can come to view our lives as blank page – terrifying, yet exciting. We delve deep into the messy process, fine tune our mistakes, and then finally we are unfinished products of our own creation, simply because life is imperfect impermanence. Life is never set; it is a…

The Soul and Ego Dichotomy - Finding Union Between the Soul and the Ego

The soul and ego can seem like adversaries, the ego playing the antagonist in our soul’s story. Often our problems are we simply aren’t listening to our own inner wisdom, so caught up in ego auto-drive. The ego isn’t a problem, it’s more or less the soul knows our true mission. Reconnecting, heeding soul wisdom, and practicing ultimately will bring about a reunion with the soul which can change the course of not only our life, but the world.

 

We all have a soul. Every single…

Nexus

how many souls lay blinded by that creed

stuck on a rock that's lost in the vastness

fatherless child of mother randomness

the underlying view that fosters greed

satisfied by the laws of mechanics

kindergarten of logic and reason

unfit for the tests of intuition

barred from the master class in holistics

unprepared to see past material

as if fearing fatal delirium

through knowledge of concerns spiritual

yet truth is no stranger to…

Conveyed by Rhymes

i can recall the day when the world fell

and i could only watch in disbelief

as people blamed each other for their grief

before hiding back each inside their shell

from there we edged ever closer to hell

dying nature, fires, foul climes above

divided souls all longing for some love

while minds dreaded for them would toll the bell

and now a plague warns us with its dark chimes

to see we're tied, us threads of the same rope

against which…

Somewhere Ahead

as i sit on the floor and bow my head

i wonder why my path has led me here

for which purpose must i be rid of fear

that lies in store for me somewhere ahead

no way could i the turns have all foreseen

nor prayed for all of life's given blessings

for the angels would not reveal their wings

until after the time they could be seen

is it a door i hear, a voice, a pace

or only an echo, a whim, a wraith

a breeze, a thought, a threat without a…

The Coronavirus Pandemic and What We Can Learn From It

          Are we falling short of the lessons we could be learning in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic?  Why are so many intelligent, sophisticated individuals running to the stores to hoard the last of the toilet paper or begging for scientists to come up with a vaccine?  It seems as though we have lost sight in the power we have as individuals to heal.  It is natural to be afraid and have our egos kick in when we feel our…

Ascent

now that the truth is out

and edges the windup

say did you really doubt

of where you would end up

just right there where you are

all alone in the night

feeling more fraud than star

and really not that bright

not completely grownup

more bewildered than fine

but still the wait is up

time to come forth and shine

seems you blew your thirties

in healing from your teens

in bending to worries

and in blaming your…

Starscaping

was it not all written

in the divine memoirs

on the nightly heaven

as a pattern of stars

that the worst could happen

at the perfect hour

to rescue the fallen

from haughtiness dour

so that they could in turn

save from the bonfire

their fellow men who burn

in confusion dire

was it not all written

well ahead of the time

in words aptly chosen

metered and set to rhyme

that there's no simple way

to…

Covid 19 and Our Spiritual Path

Spiritual Means living Boldly with an Open Heart

We see a lot of metaphysical friends posting on social media uplifting advice about staying positive and focusing only on "good' during these trying Covid-19 times. They're inspired by the "law of attraction". Let's call it for what it is, selective focusing.

 

Selective focusing is a wonderful mental discipline. But not when it is dualistic (judging good or bad), innately self-serving (striving for a…

How Covid is a Life-Lesson on Embracing Uncertainty and Releasing Control

Canada is reeling over Covid-19

Right now, in the midst of the global pandemic, people around the world are feeling frightened, helpless and out of control. We have no idea what’s coming, whether on a personal, familial, economic or societal level. Here in Canada, this is a relatively new and unpleasant experience for most of us.

In our well-to-do first world country that prides itself on a robust social welfare system, many of us assume that life here includes a good measure…

The interface of art and psychology, where healing begins

Abstract.....Its time to examine the psychology behind the art. What drives us to art making and why do we create it in the first place? Is it insanity of our own minds, the pain we are struggling with everyday that pushes us to hold the painting brush or a pen? What comes along this path of artistry? Can this become the pathway to healing?
