Welcome to the November 21, 2007 edition of the Meditation, Yoga and Spiritual Growth Carnival. This is our tenth Meditation, Yoga and Spiritual Growth Carnival and thanks to everyone who participated.
I really wanted to cut down on the amount of articles accepted, so I thought I would only have a 2 week gap between carnivals. It did not help. So I had made up my mind to be selective with the entries, but I as I reviewed them I realized they are all pretty damn good. There is stuff on how to start your meditation practice, there is FINALLY stuff of Yoga, there is info on Astral Projection, Intelligence, Love, Lucid Dreaming, Energy Medicine… the list goes on and on about really interesting topics from expert authors. So again the carnival is a little bigger than I had hoped :-).
I ask the authors to please link back to this carnival from your Blog as well as submit the carnival to your favorite social bookmarking sites (Stumble Upon is preferred). This will help others gain value from it, as well as give the collection more exposure. In addition, please only submit 1 article per blog so we can keep the number of entries to a manageable number.
Matthew Spears presents That childlike state, and Love. posted at Loving Awareness, saying, “There is so much we can learn from children. Most of us are disconnected from that childlike quality inside ourselves, that innocent state of joyful wonder that makes love for children so natural. And yet, it is available to us at all times, and an absolutely essential part of happiness and love. The article goes through qualities of a child we can learn to bring into our own life.”
