August 2016: Mission

Welcome to the August 2016 edition of Parvati Magazine.

Whether you are pursuing the life of an artist, are making life changes or wish to start a creative venture, you must have focus, discipline and courage.

Every moment is filled with possibility, which is part of the magnificence and divine beauty of being alive.

Keeping focused on the purpose of our life is paramount, especially as we move through the day and encounter seemingly small things that become large obstacles and that take us off path.

In this month’s issue, on the theme of “Mission”, you will find articles to help you make conscious choices about where to spend your time and energy.

Every moment in every day counts. Each one is a valuable and powerful asset that we can use to build our dreams or squander our joy. We each have our own way to remain focused on our goals. Some will journal while others will visualize while others will self-talk and perhaps others do a combination of those.

Whatever works for you, put that first in your day, every day. Make sure your goals are right up front and central in your life. Every day, give your life to yourself fully and completely, so you may serve the world.

Love yourself.
Love others.
Love our world.
We are one Earth family.

      Positive Possibilities: Enlightenment – Illuminated Understanding, by Parvati Devi

      Enlightenment is a part of everyone’s destiny. We each are called to this state at some point through our many incarnations. The process of our soul’s evolution involves a purification of our distorted perceptions that sees ourselves as separate, suffering entities. As we come to fully experience that our essence and everything within and around us is one with unlimited

      Business: High on Capitol Hill, by Rishi Deva

      Many Americans and Canadians support legalization of marijuana and many states already permit medicinal use. It seems that an end to the criminalization of weed would generate billions in tax revenue and relieve the criminal justice system. This is a business column and not a politics column, so I will not wade into the debate on decriminalization. I will say

      Film: Sing Street

      Flying under the radar this spring was Sing Street, a brilliant coming-of-age piece by John Carney (Once, Begin Again) set in 1980s recession-era Dublin. Ferdia Walsh-Peelo plays the teenaged Conor, pulled out of private school when his parents hit tough financial times. He quickly finds himself bullied in a rowdy, hostile school. His muse arrives in the form of the

    • Positive Possibilities Living: The Power of Acceptance, by Parvati Devi

      Recently I was asked when compromise and acceptance are part of spiritual growth, versus letting yourself get walked all over. Acceptance is a powerful place. In fact, true change only begins once acceptance occurs. If we want change, we must soberly look at what is and accept it, which means not trying to push our will into trying to change

      Books: Clara Hughes’s “Open Heart, Open Mind”, as reviewed by Pranada Devi

      After she was named the flag-bearer for the opening ceremony of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics, and faced an intense media scrum, Canadian cyclist and speed skater Clara Hughes was stressed. Then she opened her email, and found an invitation to a “brushing-off” ceremony. While other Olympic competitors went deep into their own sport bubbles, Clara travelled to a Squamish
