Making the Fire the Center of Your Life

I was in the health food store and a gentleman came up to me and said, "I would like to show you something. May I come to your home?" His name was Kibwe Bey and he did come one evening, sat down on the living room floor and proceeded to make a smoky little fire. I fell in love with the fragrance immediately and so began my Homa-centered life. This was 32 years ago in 1976.

My Experiences at the Three Points of Light of the Planet

To have the opportunity of visiting this planet's three Points of Light is undoubtedly a wonderful experience, a marvelous opportunity for exploring our thoughts, our feelings and also for clearing any doubts that we may have--those doubts that just assault us, from time to time, without warning!

I would like to share my very personal views and experiences of each of these points. I want to explain how they have helped me not only to confront my demons, but also to almost touch the divine with my senses—the divine inside of each of us that sometimes (or most of the time) in our life we escape from.

Agnihotra in Arnhem Land, NT, Australia

Kathryn Bose reports from Arnhem Land N.T. Australia:
I live in the remote far north of Australia in North East Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, which is Aboriginal territory.

Europeans Beware

When the Chernobyl nuclear accident happened in 1986, I had a farm near Graz in Austria. The Austrian Government immediately issued that every farmer had to carry milk and fodder for testing for radioactivity. When I did this, the inspectors were shocked, because they found only normal radioactivity levels in our milk and fodder samples while all the farmers in the surrounding area had high doses in their samples. The inspectors said it was not possible to have normal radioactivity after Chernobyl and is there anything special that I do on my farm?
