Owen Waters, Peace and Happiness Peace resides in the human heart. Inner peace
creates outer peace in your relationships and in the effect that you
have upon the global consciousness. Peace is a choice. It respects your boundaries and
it respects the boundaries of others. When you set your boundaries and
stop others from intruding into your space, when you respect other
people's boundaries and do not intrude into their personal space, then
it is possible to move on to the next step, a state of mutual

Guy Finley, Escape to Freedom An evil sorcerer once hypnotized a group of
captives into believing that whatever he wanted was what they wantedIt was a powerful black spell. Not only did it keep each of his psychic
slaves unconscious to his own unhappy feelings, but it also made him
believe that he had no choice but to feel that way. Read more...
Chuck Gallozzi, Inspirational Leaders Are Committed to Making a Difference Immediately following the devastating earthquake

Annie Burnside, Vibration and the Family Last
week on the way to my alley loaded down with both garbage and anxiety,
I felt dense and tired. I was seeking help from earthly sources on an
issue that needed to be resolved. The help had not yet come through, so
I was feeling slightly worried. After discarding all of my unnecessary
physical baggage into its proper receptacles and neatly placing the
bins on the alley, I felt a little bit lighter. Read more...

Gabriella Kortsch, Do You Vibrate to a Tune that Serves You Well? Recently I drove through horrendous road

abounded. Read more...
Robert E. Darby, The Person We Think We Are And The World We Think Is Real What if you suddenly discovered that the person
you think you are and the world you think is real is actually just a
product of your mind's ability to create imaginary realities and for
some reason one day you woke up and decided that one of those realities
was the real actual world and that your imaginary image of yourself was
also the real you? Read more...
Marlene Buffa, Juggling Chainsaws Years ago, the television show Saturday Night Live,

Charles F. Haanel, The Master Key System, Part 22 In Part Twenty-two you will find that thoughts are
spiritual seeds, which, when planted in the subconscious mind, have a
tendency to sprout and grow, but unfortunately the fruit is frequently

Listen to this issue's Podcast:
Each week Peter Shepherd produces an audio version of the Cultivate Life! Magazine,
including several selected articles. Some profound articles this week... Our first author, Guy Finley, asks if you will - one day - wonder how you were ever tricked into feeling bad about anything. Owen Waters explains how peace resides in the human heart. Inner peace creates outer peace in your relationships and in the effect that you have upon the global consciousness. And then Beca Lewis looks at the game we play called 'not enough' which requires us all to focus on the intent of going somewhere to get something by a certain period of time. That game never ends. There is never a point that we will get it all done or have enough.
