CelebraZine: 04 Oct 08

We were never cast out of Eden, but walk daily from it, to the degree that we do not feel worthy of the gift of ultimate happiness.--Strike a Chord of Silence

Welcome to the Third Edition of the CelebraZine (Celebration eZine) blog carnival.

Our focus dictates what we see, which reinforces our focus, further confining the possibility of what we will see. Twice a month we put together a collection of blogs containing text, image, video, and audio from talented people empowering others and Celebrating What's Right in the World!

May you be blessed by these offerings reminding us of the beauty, wonder, and sacredness in the world around us and within us.

Celebrate Living, Celebrate Yourself!

I would like to open with this beautiful video, Historia de un letrero (original video), passed on to me by a dear friend, Jon Pertee.
This video, focusing on the impact of words and perception, won the short film award at Cannes , and is very well worth 4 ½ minutes of your time!

Kathy Smith presents How do you prepare for the unknown? with a wonderful charitable service announcement at ~KES
The Google "Project 10 to the 100th" is a call for ideas to change the world by helping as many people as possible. Here's how to join in.

Karen Lawrence presents The Intelligent Heart posted at Assist the Artist.
The heart-mind connection may well have more than psychological or spiritual implications when it comes to the way we live and how we choose our livelihoods than we ever imagined.

Daily OM presents Letting Yourself Be Seen at Daily Om.
When we allow ourselves to be witnessed by another, we cannot help but be transformed by the experience.
--for those of you who have not already been introduced to Daily Om, it is a network of spiritual exchange centered around a daily article.

Resurrected1 presents this powerful video, In My Name.
Your simple video message will join thousands of others in the call to end poverty in our lifetime.

There is not one big cosmic meaning for all, there is only the meaning we each give to our life, an individual meaning, an individual plot, like an individual novel, a book for each person.--Anais Nin

Andrew Galasetti presents 50 things to say before you die at Lyvved.
You’d be surprised how little people express their selves and say what they need to say to those who matter. You don’t want to be on your deathbed before you utter these words.

Anna Varney presents GURU LIFE
I'm finding Life to be the most amazing sacred teacher of all
- the perfect teacher -

Robin presents her Meditation Movie
“There Is Nothing Wrong With You”

Myrko presents The 10 Very Zen Stories at AwakeBlogger.
Many teachings from Zen-Buddhism are told in short and delightful stories. They are usually designed to develop the mind and to free it from distortions and so to connect with our spirit.

Tom Volkar presents Believe It Or Not at Delightful Work.
Sometimes we need to sneak up on our own minds to extract the wisdom within.

Said the river to the seeker, "Does one really have to fret about enlightenment? No matter which way I turn, I’m homeward bound."-- Anthony De Mello
