Planet Power: Oct. 24 - 30, 2013

Welcome to the sign of Scorpio, where we study the fruit of our meditations on the regenerating mysteries of life and death. My departed mother came to me under this very pomegranate tree, and presented me with the apples of her experience. In a strong voice, she answered my questions concerning life and death. She said, “You are guided, my son,” reminding me that even though I feel like everyone’s father, I’m also everyone’s child. And then she said, “When death is nothing, nothing is nothing. Finally, we are free.” This be the truth, from my mother and me.

Martinez, Maybe

The question was whether Taylor Martinez would play for the Nebraska football team on Saturday at Minnesota, following a bye-week.

And the answer was a definitive maybe.

“We’re just seeing how he’s progressing . . . kind of play it by ear as the week goes on,” coach Bo Pelini said at his weekly news conference on Monday.

Martinez, a four-year starter at quarterback, hasn’t played since the third game of the season against UCLA, and redshirt freshman Tommy Armstrong Jr. has started the three games since then. After the first two of those games at least some Husker fans were ready to turn the job over to Armstrong. After the most recent, however, that attitude…

For the Atheist in All of Us

Fervent or faithless, there is a large or small part of our mind that wants to be sure. “Convince me,” it says. Well, here you are. Just briefly suspend your disbelief and get your science on.

Today’s Course in Miracles lesson reads, “Remember that I am One with God.” Oh, gosh. It sounds so comforting and it’s easy to imagine that aside from the body, on the plane of never-notice, we might truly be One with God. But normally that notion considers it’s either metaphor or mystical. We are not really actually One with God, are we? I mean, look, here’s my body and where’s God? And if we — each of us — is really One with…

News You Can Use: October, 2013

The Good

The best news this week is that the annual Mystic Fest is Saturday and Sunday at the Ramada, 72nd & Grover. Free admission. Don’t miss it.

Exercise Beats Pills. Great news we can all celebrate, and somehow, everyone knows is true. This was no small research study reported by the British Medical Journal. It involved over 340,000 patients. From the findings, researchers concluded that moderate exercise of only 2.5 hours weekly was equal to medications for heart disease and outperformed prescription drugs used on stroke patients. The study was done in England where sadly, exercise is on the decline and prescriptions are on the increase. There was an average of 17.7 prescriptions for every man,…

Lecture Tour on Healing Visits Omaha

Spending most of my adult life in Los Angeles, I became accustomed to unique opportunities to learn about healing, metaphysics, mind/body medicine and spirituality. Practitioners commonly mounted workshops, seminars, lectures, presentations and conferences in L.A., the nexus of New Age.

Upon moving back to Omaha, I was happily surprised by the number of opportunities in the Heartland. There are more than enough gatherings to keep any seeker busy, offering wisdom and healing to all comers. Omaha is no mere oasis along the Oregon Trail. The grass isn’t really greener on either of the Coasts or in the Big City. In fact, roots grow a little deeper on the prairie.

This weekend bears witness as members of the…

Guaranteed to Turn Your Stomach

Food is the pathway to health. If what we eat is below par, that’s how we’ll feel. Health is more than simply the absence of disease. Health is the process of meeting the maximum potential of our existence. Eating real food is a major step to optimizing our physical performance and wellbeing.

It’s embarrassing what the Standard American Diet (SAD) has morphed into and what the corporate food industry has foisted on the American public. Not without guilt is the Federal government and its food and drug related agencies like the USDA, FDA and complicit legislators. The government spends billions subsidizing the very food crops and industries that drive the food-related diseases of heart disease, cancer and diabetes,…
