Spiritual Growth Articles

Life Reflection.

"There is only one journey. Going inside yourself."
 --Rainer Maria Rilke  

In honor of the New Year and our 5-Year Anniversary on the World Wide Web this January, our Feature Articles, dedicated to personal and spiritual growth, are exploring the subject of "Life Reflection." Our contributing authors have provided us with a wonderful and varied collection of thought and insight on this topic, and some have shared their personal life reflections, too.

May peace and joy be yours as you reflect on life!

"Look within! ... The secret is inside you."
 --Hui-neng, sixth great patriarch
of Zen Buddhism
