Magnificent Mountain Elks and a Spiritual Exercise

By Gardiner L. Tucker, Jr., Colorado

For six weeks during the fall, my wife, Marcie, and I were house-sitting in Estes Park, Colorado, for her university professor.

By Henry Koster, Queensland, Australia

My wife, Lorry, and I are blessed to live in the subtropics of Australia. A national park borders the northern and half of the eastern boundary of our property. Many a day as we wander around our acreage, I silently thank Spirit for the gift. I ask my inner spiritual guide, the Mahanta, to show me how to use this gift to serve life in the best possible way.
