Written by Stephanie Yeh

MAKING SPACE for Sacred Space ================================================== When you read a great inspirational book, prayer, or article, don't you think to yourself, "What a great idea! I should do more daily rituals, prayer, meditation."? It always seems like a great idea, right? We know that sacred practices and sacred space bring peace, harmony, joy, and ease into our lives. Sounds like a great idea!

The problem is thatrepparttar impulse to add more sacred activity into our lives only lasts for a few moments-then life intrudes and we forget all about it untilrepparttar 127650 next time we read something inspiring. So how can we really make space for sacred space in our lives? Luckily it's not as hard as you think. Check out these simple ways you can expandrepparttar 127651 sacred in your life:

1) Be Simple and Consistent: Consistency in creating sacred space is much more important than quantity. Choose one sacred practice you will do every day, and do it every day.

2) Clear Outrepparttar 127653 Clutter: Sacred space means actually having a space where you can be inrepparttar 127654 sacred.

Seeking a spot of serenity somewhere inrepparttar universe, I recently booked a deep-discount dodgy berth onrepparttar 127649 ‘White Elephant Express Space Shuttle’, to a little known place in a galaxy far, far away.

“IT” (otherwise known as HD 36405.b) is not your average “oddball” exo-solar planet made of rock that wobbles on its end and zips around a nearby star in less than 2.46 days.

Most linear thinkers have a great deal of difficulty even comprehending why on earth anyone in their “right mind” would be interested in visiting a planet called “IT”. Not being a linear thinker with an investment inrepparttar 127650 “right” answer, I didn’t give a hoot. After all, what does one (who walks on water and listens to miffed mortals all day long) do for a frigging night off, now I ask you?

If truth be told, (after reading random excerpts from “The Itty Bitty Bunkum Book About Life,repparttar 127651 Universe and Practically Everything Underrepparttar 127652 Sun Not To Mention Stuff Going On In Remote Galaxies), I was simply delirious. According to its noted author, Dr. Jarn Leffer, “IT is a ’must-see’ for those with little time on their hands and a passionate interest in Innocuous Things.”

As planets go, “IT” is a pretty ho-hum celestial pit-stop with perhaps one exception…repparttar 127653 welcome notice that reads, “Cosmic Cowboys - Welcome torepparttar 127654 furthest unexplored outreaches ofrepparttar 127655 Galaxy … Home torepparttar 127656 Flop Fairy and Oodles of Gadflies!”

“IT” is populated by colonies of giggling, green grasshoppers . What else would you expect to inhabit a far-flung, fantasy-challenged hellhole like this? But, what made “IT” strictly speaking a strange place wasrepparttar 127657 fact thatrepparttar 127658 inhabitants munch on green, biodegradable garbage bags just for fun. Lacking masticating capabilities,repparttar 127659 gadflies process their food by vigorously jumping up and down on it. No wonder they have no need for fast-food franchises, strip malls or landfills!
