CelebraZine 02Mar09

Your daily life  is your temple and your religion.
When you enter into it take with you your all.

Kahlil Gibran

Moonlight by alicepopkorn

Our focus dictates what we see, which reinforces our focus, further expanding the possibility of what we will see.

The most sacred practice you can partake

is the celebration of yourself and your life-
-the holy center of the universe!

“by none but a  god shall a god be worshipped”

You must become the god you wish to worship.

Hindu saying (from the book, “A Joseph Campbell Companion”)

Bodhisattva by  h.koppdelaney

I want to thank those of you who have read and contributed to CelebraZine. I am grateful for the introduction to the works that putting together this celebration has gifted me with, and to the  company of the gentle souls that have shared this part of my journey with me.


Peace and wonder to all you for the works seeking to better our world!!!

However, in order to best honor my place in–and give my best gift to–this world, I must take a long sabbatical of walking the mountain, extended meditation, focused writing of  my novels, and fully embracing the sacred prosaic that is glorious life.

We have never been truly parted, yet will we meet again…..

May you be forever gifted with awareness of the beauty, wonder, and sacredness in the world around you and within you.

Blessings, dear ones,

Peter Clemens presents 10 Traits Of A Successful Human Being at PickTheBrain

There’s a lot of talk about what you should do to become successful, but I would argue that it ’s more about who you are that makes the biggest impact. It’s the decisions we make on a daily basis, the habits we naturally form in our lives that determine the level of success we can achieve. Here are 10 traits that I’ve seen as essential for success.


Hindu saying (from the book, “A Joseph Campbell Companion”),

“by none but a god shall a god be worshipped”

Therefore, you must become the god you wish to worship.

In order to honor love, become love.

Responsibility does not only lie with the leaders    of our countries or with those who have been appointed or elected to do a    particular job. It lies with each of us individually. Peace, for example,    starts within each one of us. When we have inner peace, we can be at peace with those around us.–HH the Dalai Lama

Joe presents What was the last thing you found?

“I would like to beg  you, dear Sir, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked  rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the  answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able    to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now.  Perhaps then, some day far in the future, you will gradually, without even    noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
-Rainer Maria Rilke’s advice to a young poet

Welcome to the Chinese New Year edition of CelebraZine

Happy Year of the Earth Ox, all!!!

A dragon dances down H Street in Chinatown during an annual Chinese New Year    celebration. (2007 Photo By Katherine Frey — The    Washington Post)

Occupying the 2nd position on the Chinese Zodiac, Oxen possess such character traits as dependability, strength and determination. Oxen are tolerant individuals who believe that the road to success involves hard work and scrupulous behavior; they don’t believe in taking shortcuts. They characterize those who don’t work hard as lazy individuals not worthy of respect.

Oxen are capable of trusting others and will listen to their opinions with an open mind. However, Oxen prefer making decisions that are based on their own research. Oxen favor strong, life-long alliances to casual acquaintances.

Barack Obama was born in the Year of the Ox (metal)

Look what the Year of the Ox has in store for you
