Nurturing Ourselves and the World

Nurturing Ourselves and the World

1225 Words

by Kathy Custren

Nurturing is one word for which many of us may have slightly different meanings, yet it is one that is crucial to our health and welfare, all around the world. No matter who we may be, rich or poor, connected or not, we all have a deeply spiritual and emotional relationship when it comes to nurturing. Nurturing transcends our physical realm in many ways…

We Have a Story to Air, So to Speak

We Have a Story to Air, So to Speak

By Kathy Custren

Deep breath. Air is necessary in order to tell our story. Oh, look, I've given away the plot of the story already...or have I? Stay with me, please, as capturing air is never an easy thing to do. Capturing air and using it, can be even trickier. Using air for its most right and proper purpose, that of telling our story, takes a…

When Voting Is Not Enough

When Voting Is Not Enough

By Kathy Custren

Ah, the power of our voting voice! While I am not a huge fan of 'politics' for the distracting circus it can be, I do very much admire the democratic process of voting. Everyone may have an opinion, so it takes a bit of mindful effort to make a choice and express our conscience by…

Circles, Cycles, and So Much More

Circles, Cycles, and So Much More

 

By Kathy Custren

 

Circles: Opening our Minds to Dimension

 

Part of our awareness, down to each and every single person, includes how we relate to various images and pictures. We likely envision a personal space or comfort zone around us, perhaps as circles surrounding our dots of being. Considering the amount of time we spend seeking and searching our inner and…

The Hope in Pandora

The Hope in Pandora

 

By Kathy Custren

 

Taking a look around our world today, especially when using social media and mainstream news, hope seems to be in short supply. We can still count off any number of the problems released in the ancient story of Pandora. For the background of the story, read more on the Wikipedia page at this link:…

Amenti: Balancing to Obtain the Hall Pass

Amenti: Balancing to Obtain the Hall Pass

 

By Kathy Custren

 

A recent post by an online friend had me revisiting time and words with Thoth, the Atlantean; an immortal, ancient sage whose wisdom on spiritual and metaphysical matters rings true for many who delve into the writings attributed to him, which are known as, “The Emerald…

Gender: In Defense of Identity

GENDER: IN DEFENSE OF IDENTITY

By Kathy Custren

 

An older co-worker, just the other day, remarked about the way our society is changing at such a rapid pace. Perhaps there is no clearer sign that we are in the midst of an age of great transformation than the fact that an increasing number of people are redefining the meanings of both gender and identity.

 

The very public rise of Caitlyn Jenner as a transgender icon in the media has placed the topic of…

Revolt! A Word and World Review

Revolt! A Word and World Review

By Kathy Custren

Certain words grow on us, perhaps a bit like moss. We grow to recognize how important and valuable they can be in our lives; even guide us in the direction we take. We discover words many of us may deem inappropriate suddenly, or over time, find themselves incorporated into our active, general lexicon or reserved for judicious, personal use.

One such word that I and a few other of my online friends discovered…

Well-Wishing and the Wishing Well

Well-Wishing and the Wishing Well

By Kathy Custren

 

Reach back, way back into the recesses of your being. Depending on your soul age, you may have to reach back a few lifetimes or two, to the point where most useful water was obtained from a well. In the very olden days, entire settlements grew in number around the town well, where most everyone would go to retrieve a few containers of the precious resource.

 

Perhaps it…

What Model Do YOU Promote?

What Model Do YOU Promote?

By Kathy Custren

 

There have been a number of news articles about the struggles of the modeling world…those people who choose and are hired to put on clothes and walk the runways of fashion. The talk surrounds the size of the models; mostly, as to how large or small they are or should be. The controversy over extremes in size is just one way we may be distracted by someone or something on…

World Vision: Heart Words and Change

World Vision: Heart Words and Change

 

By Kathy Custren

 

We are in great need of a collective vision. There is an old saying: “As above, so below.” This is true now, perhaps, as much as it ever was in the past. Each of us, as part of the collective, bears a measure of responsibility for the world we see before us today. And we are just as honor-bound to both reflect and emit the right vibration in order to foster change.

 

Sure, it is…

Sweeping Changes

Sweeping Changes

 

By Kathy Custren

 

A few days ago, a writing notion came to me that I entitled, “It’s Taken This Long.” The idea was to outline our long, shared journey and provide a snapshot of where we stand on a number of areas, such as education, health, energy, and environment. Disheartened, the title changed to, “This is NOT the World We Need.” Things turned rather depressing, since so many of us are all living these realities. It would not be…

I Walk in Gratitude

I Walk in Gratitude

 

By Kathy Custren

 

Another new year, and 23 days into it brings a time of reflection and gratitude. At the eve of a new year in my life, I walk in gratitude with each step I take these days, realizing the peace I seek in the world begins with me. Little old me…getting older with every passing day…yet gratitude makes many elements of my life that much lighter and easier to face.

 

When one is thankful, one finds…

Path-ology 2014

Path-ology 2014

 

By Kathy Custren

 

As 2014 ends, beyond the list of beloved performers who have left this realm of our physical senses, it may be a good time to take a look at our own path. The word, “pathology,” is defined as the science of the causes and effects of disease—especially laboratory samples used for diagnostic or forensic purposes. I suggest we expand the definition to include: the study of our path, or way of…

The Importance of Alone Time

The Importance of Alone Time

By Kathy Custren

 

“Your sacred space is where you can find yourself over and over again.”

--Joseph Campbell

 

So—here we are. We find ourselves alone…again. It can be miserable at any time of the year, to be alone, but especially at the holidays…. There is just something to the holiday season that begs for us to be social, giving, and…anything but ‘alone.’ All…

Entropic Healing and Chaos Therapy: ‘You’ve Got the Power’

Entropic Healing and Chaos Therapy: ‘You’ve Got the Power’

By Kathy Custren

By definition, entropic--or the word ‘entropy’-- does not sound very appealing at all. It supports the idea of decomposition well enough: it can mean a degree of energetic disorder or randomness in [the] system; a gradual decline into chaos. Who would want that to happen? How would entropy be useful?

Alchemists in the know may identify entropy as part of a necessary natural, negredo (nigredo)…

A Denial of Wisdom [Part Two of Two]

A Denial of Wisdom [Part Two of Two]

By Kathy Custren

In Part One, we reviewed that knowledge and wisdom are directly tied to our more spiritual pursuits, and that we have challenges in applying wisdom in our modern times. We also equated the possibility that our denial of nature and change equals a denial of wisdom.

Wisdom and the Abuse of Power

We can no longer dispute that we are in a major time of change, in line with a critical period in…
