A Message from a Luna Moth

  By Dru Peers The following extract is taken from Dru’s new book The Path to Celtic Buddhism: The True Story of Initiation into the Forgotten Wisdom of our Celtic Ancestors. Dru was a Trappist Monk for 21 years but left the Order in 2011 to travel to Anadhaire Buddhist Center in Vermont. Anadhaire is also home to Rev. John Perks. Perks was for seven years the Close personal assistant to Chögyam Trungpa, and was inspired by him to establish a new Buddhist lineage, called Celtic Buddhism. This form of Buddhism seeks to free itself from eastern cultural trappings so as to express itself in the culture...

Disappearing Stress with Meditative Wizardry

  By Andrew Peers Stress is one of the greatest scourges of our times for the modern (working or non-working) person. It raises its ugly head in many forms, even when we aren’t working and supposed to be relaxing, or retired from work. Stress always comes with an uncomfortable feeling of disturbance. The mind rattles off its cares on an endlessly revolving carousel of thoughts that can keep us awake at night.

The River: The Opposite of Trying to Gain Control of a Life That Flows.

By Andrew Peers I would love to live like a river flows, carried by the surprise of its own unfolding.

I met with some limited success and had settled down into the 9 to 5 routine when the pace changed again, and the horizon widened. One Autumn day, a casual comment to two men discussing religion at a British Home Store cafeteria in...

The World is Not Coming at You.

  By Andrew Peers So what would you say if I said that the world is not coming at you, though admittedly it can often feel this way. Instead, it’s coming from you. It’s a message from you, to you, about you. Which is good because it puts you back in touch with your power, the power of choice in your mind. The power to choose how you interpret what you see. Your unconscious mind projects the movie called Everything Happening at the Moment, starring you. And your conscious mind is watching it all the time and taking it...

The Creation of The Longing Look.

  By Andrew Peers A couple of years ago I started a Facebook page called The Longing Look. Actually the full name is The Order of the Longing Look, just in case you or anyone else wants to search for it. I did this by way of expressing outwardly what had rather dramatically been revealed to me inwardly. At the time, I didn’t understand what the dream was supposed to signify exactly, though what I saw and heard that night was supremely clear: after gaining access to the inner sanctum of a chapel, I read the name: The Order...
