Photo©EvgeniyKalinovskiy/123rf Health care providers and patients have traditionally thought that infections patients get while in the hospital are caused by superbugs they’re exposed to while they’re in a medical facility. Genetic data from the bacteria causing these infections – think CSI for E. coli – tells another story: Most health care-associated infections are caused by previously harmless bacteria that patients already had on their bodies before they even entered the hospital. Research comparing bacteria in the microbiome – those colonizing our noses, s ..read more

Artwork©RetroVintageClipArt/Etsy When we incarnate into a 3D world, we are going to experience events that offer us chances to learn many things. We plan many of those events to give us the best chance of success. Prior to incarnating we choose specific spiritual goals and abilities we wish to achieve in the incarnation. That includes choosing the moment of our birth to align with specific planetary energies. We make agreements with others to act in certain ways during that lifetime to help us both grow. We plan ways to balance out karma to assist us learn what we hadn’t known at the time w ..read more

Photo©AneteLusina/Pexels When I was a child and adolescent, my family suffered prolonged life-threatening intimidation from the New York mafia. My father was called as a witness to testify against Johnny “Dio” Dioguardi, a ruthless mafioso of the Lucchese crime family. In an attempt to protect my mother, me and younger brothers from almost certain death, my father refused to testify against Dio, even as this was demanded by the young and ambitious Robert F. Kennedy, then chief counsel to the New York Senate committee on racketeering. To help secure my father’s silence, I was brutally raped ..read more

Photo©Sergey Nivens/123rf If we remember those times and places — and there are so many — where people behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction. — Howard Zinn, American historian You matter to me. Regardless of where you are located or how different we may seem. I care about your well-being and your struggles. The empath in me loves to feel a natural bond with you and the whole of humanity, despite all our shortcomings and weaknesses. Empathy will bring us closer and lets us know tha ..read more

Artwork©ShushantoChowdhuryshuvo/123rf One night while I was lying in bed, I started thinking about Aries season, meditating on it a little, and wondering how I may want to integrate it into my life. Not in a linear way, but rather in a feelings-based way — tender and softly. At every moment the sun is in a Zodiac sign in the sky, but so is every other planet in the solar system — Moon, Venus, Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, and so on. In our birth chart (a map of the sky at the moment of our birth), we each have the Sun and Moon, Venus and Mercury, and so on, in a specific Zodiac sign. Ever ..read more

Artwork©JulietPhotography/123rf We live now in a third-floor condo overlooking an expanse of woods. In the past, we’ve always lived in second-floor apartments, so this is a change of perspective. We are at bird level. Blue jays and robins fly past our windows. We see more of the sky and continuously changing cloud formations. The sunlight moves into the trees at sunrise and fades to shadow at dusk. From a distance, we see flocks of birds land on the tree branches. As they fly through the sky and perch in the treetops, birds take in a multi-level overview of their environment. From our windo ..read more

Photo©Suttiwat Phokaiyajima/123rf Our world is a fabulous and fascinating place, full of humans who appear very diverse, yet are similar. We all have reactions to the various emotional upsets we encounter throughout our lives, but we may approach these upsets from two different points of view. A dualistic and linear point of view makes us perceive events as good or bad; a non-dualistic, non-linear level allows us to observe events without attaching judgment or justification, but with acceptance as a consequence of the law of cause and effect. As we observe life and the people around us, we ..read more
