Do Fairies Exist

Many people are willing and even longing to believe in the existence of fairies. But, to most of us, they stand as a lost illusion. Not so with everyone, for I, amongst others, have seen all kinds of fairies for as long as I can remember, and I still see them daily.

Challenge of Creativity

When people see my art, they often exclaim, "You are so creative! I cannot even draw a straight line!" My answer is the same, "I cannot draw a straight line either; when I need one, I get a ruler!" Creativity has nothing to do with art, although it can invade the art field. Creativity is about the dynamic forces and impulses within us. It is the constant catalyst that generates so many aspects of living, the beautiful, ever changing flow of life.

We Need a New Precedent!

Early this year, my inner voice told me loudly and clearly to campaign for President. My inner voice, like my outer voice, speaks with a slight East Indian accent, and so is sometimes difficult to understand.

Ariadne

by Cailean Darkwater. I'm normally very cautious, but sometimes I get the impulse to do something REALLY reckless. I think everybody has a very contrary element in their nature, a counter to the everyday. It all started when I was walking through the hills...

Children of The Light

Follow the Golden Rule

But Seriously, Folks -- what if we practiced what they preached and made the golden rule the golden ruler?

The state of our world ... is sub-lemon. Indeed, for...

Across the River

by Alan Harris. My bones are weary as I drive home from the office. I am a casualty of the business world, that whirlwind of meaningless activity leading toward a grand total of zero on the famous bottom line. No, I won't go back to my meaningless suburb. I will just walk. I will beg. I will have nothing and want nothing. Non-attachment is the time-honored way to happiness, as proven time and again in the East.

The way in which energy behaves depends on what the observer expects to see. If you intend to see certain events, your creative energy will transform itself into those events.
