The definition I like best for the term “wellness” is this: The integration, balance and harmony of mind, body, spirit, and emotions where the whole is always greater than the sum of the parts. The aspect of spiritual well-being often gets neglected or ignored (for a great many reasons), but one aspect of spiritual wellbeing invites us to accept that there are things in the world that we are never going to fully understand or explain; such as spontaneous remissions of cancerous tumors, divine synchronicities… and perhaps even crop circles. Over the past several centuries, science has stepped in to explain what reality is; yet even science does not have all the answers. Some say that science has become its own religion. For sure, stressful situations can force us to be myopic about life’s problems, yet it behooves us to take these blinders off and see the BIG picture… and at the same time… enjoy the mystery of life itself.

• Stress Tip for the Day:
Have you ever had an experience that defies rational explanation? Have you ever had a synchronistic moment that defies all odds? Most likely you have, even if you are embarrassed to mention it to anyone. Take time each day to enjoy the mystery of life. Perspective takes the edge off a bad day. Embrace the mystery!
• Links Worth Noting:
A friend sent this link to me. I have had an active interest in Crop Circles ever since I first heard about them. Despite the fact that two guys (Doug and Dave) claim to be making all of these (after a few beers I might add), crop circles made by humans don’t match the intricacies made by “other” forces. While there is much speculation, currently there is no proven answer to how these form, sometimes in less than 3-5 seconds.
• Photo of the Day:
For thousands of years Stonehenge (outside of London, England) has been a mystery to those who gazed upon this structure. How did people transport these monolithic rocks? Why did they build it? What purpose did it serve? I was lucky enough to visit Stonehenge a few years ago during the summer when there were barely any people there. It was a magnificent experience and mystical too. The moon was a real bonus. Enjoy!
