Reflections on Resurrection

By Aubert Bastiat Jesus spoke of resurrection, not just as a future event, but as a path – the “narrow path” – open to his followers. But what does resurrection truly entail?⁣ The answer emerges in several ways. The ultimate resurrection is a grand project – complete spiritual liberation, a state of enlightenment achieved by great sages who, like Yeshua, have walked the entire “Cycle of Initiation,” a journey spanning multiple lifetimes.⁣ Yet, there’s another kind of resurrection, a smaller step closer to home. We can experience it on a personal level, at any stage in our development. This is the “seed of change” that makes all the difference. The grand journey begins with a single step, taken exactly where we stand.⁣ There’s no one-size-fits-all approach. Each individual’s path unfolds uniquely, and every step is always the first on a grander journey. This vast cycle of initiations mirrors itself in our daily lives – the microcosm reflecting the macrocosm. Just as the s

Soul Infection

By Jayden Kyryluk Be an infection. Not a health infection, but a soul infection. Infect others with a positive attitude. Infect them with a beautiful outlook on life; on the small things, on the things we all overlook. Look up at the sky in awe and see the clouds as you see your mother and hug them in wonder. Infect everyone you meet with happiness. Look down at the grass and up at the trees as a child in generous curiosity. For happiness, fulfillment, and love is found not on the surface, but within. When you find inspiration in the world, that feeling you get doesn’t come from what you see or what you seek, but from how you feel. It comes from a place you've already been before. On the surface, the sky, clouds, grass, and the trees appear to be a mere function of life, but in truth, they are life itself, and so are you. They are mirrors reflecting one another, so ask yourself: what do I want to reflect?  Your energy is contagious–reflect it onto others. Infect them with you, with

Being Human

By Jayden Kyryluk There is a deep loneliness in human beings. We search but we cannot find and we yearn for what we cannot have. We find ourselves looking over the edge of truth in search for what is false. It’s in our sight, but beyond our reach. In search of truth we look too far ahead or behind when it’s right in front of us. The sun is shining but we worry about the cloud’s drifting by. We worry about the river when the ocean is around the corner. Despite the clouds and obstacles that may block our view, the river continues to flow and the sun continues to shine, pulling us closer to the ocean within. There is beauty in everything and there is truth in beauty. 
 Some lessons are mystical and others are plain old real. Both find their way in our everyday life. When we set a goal and adjust our habits to reach it, we learn a real lesson that we consciously brought on ourself. Othertimes, a spark lights up within us that gives meaning to past experiences; these are mystical lessons. T

Breath In, Breathe Out

By Ben Puchniak Give yourself space to breathe, think, recycle and discard thoughts. Find the time and space once a day to recharge your mental landscape and de-clutter. So many of us go through the day without taking a minute to breathe and stop the process of overthinking. We let our thoughts and worries compound and eventually, they weigh us down. Having time and space to myself are the two most important constant aspects of my life. This means clearing a small amount of time in the day to be with yourself in a space that is comfortable for you. It could be in a park, in your bedroom, in the car or at a coffee shop; the goal is a stable mental state for a couple of minutes. This space to think can be considered meditation or reflection, but it doesn’t have to be. Find the time to sit and run over whatever is at the top of your consciousness–think about your worries–but don’t let them take over your train of thought. Think of them as problems or challenges to be solved, not as brick

Stop Looking For Evidence

By Ricky Rusk Stop Looking For Evidence For your manifestations For your beliefs When you know something, there is no reason to check You already know Yoda does not need external validation from the force A true Jedi knows the force, but Han Solo needs it to be proven The Jedi know it   Know it When you know, there is no reason to check There is no reason to check your phone for the text if you know what’s on the other side Stop checking Be in the moment Be in each and every moment   True knowledge is to truly know Anything, not everything A dog who knows its owner is coming back has no reason to check the door It will await faithfully And still will be full of love when the time comes True knowledge is to truly know   I know that I am loved The truth of my belief doesn't rely on external validation; its essence remains unchanged The world providing that validation is a blessing and part of the human experience,

It Comes and Goes

By Jayden Kyryluk   "Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced."  Soren Kierkegaard It comes and goes. It comes and goes... We're all so trapped in our own melodrama that we forget how brief our time is. We've all heard those older than us recite the prophetic words that "time flies." If there is one inalienable law in the universe, it's that history repeats. Whether you like it or not, you'll be reciting the same prophecy one day. Our bodies’ time on earth is but a snap of the finger, but it's our souls that carry on our story. In every death, there is life. When we move on from our body, our souls assume a new form in accordance with our karma. With each birth, we carry with us the karma we've acquired in past lives. It manifests as habits, deep character traits, and even trauma ( Many Lives, Many Masters by Bryan Weiss). We’ve been trapped in this near infinitesimal process of life and death for such an unfathoma

The Ocean is You

By Jayden Kyryluk  It is said the ocean is a better reflection of who we are than a mirror itself. Every wave is a lifetime, every lifetime a wave. You can step into the ocean twice, but it will be a different ocean. Constantly evolving and constantly changing, like us. When you step into the ocean a second time, you arrive with the experience that you have been there before. You are not the same, and neither is the ocean. Your cells die and are reborn, memories come and go, and every moment you are new. With every wave the ocean is reborn. Every wave a new thought, and every thought a new wave. They come and go…they come and go. Every moment brings renewal, for us and the ocean, echoing the power of growth within us. Life is but an ocean, and you are the shore. At some point, you must drift away and lose sight of it all. The shores of your identity fade away when you take off that tight shoe of who you think you are.  Step into the ocean. Step into who you really are.
