Welcome to the first issue of n9ne magazine. Our aim is to inspire you so that you can find your way, from where you are to where you want to be; simply because you wish to be of service and make a difference in the world.
Our magazine is for you if you are looking for purpose and meaning in your life. N9ne will combine ancient wisdom with practical advice and share insights from a very diverse group of contributors.
N9ne magazine is published by the SolePath Institute, which was founded in 2009 to support the SolePath work. SolePath is the way to find answers to the fundamental and everyday questions of your life. SolePath is always only about you; about you as an individual; about you walking your path to purpose and a beautiful life.
N9ne magazine is a wonderful and interesting view of the journey to a life filled with meaning.
Our theme for this inaugural issue is ‘new beginnings’ and I am reminded of this beautiful quote from Meister Echhart.
“And suddenly you know: it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of new beginnings.”
That’s a profound message for all of us and new beginnings can mean so many different things – change, endings, excitement, fear, a fresh start, letting go, surprise, courage, bravery, joy. As Lao Tzu said,
‘new beginnings are often disguised as painful endings’
Our first issue is filled with mental, physical and spiritual wisdom for new beginnings. You will discover some new ideas and reconnect with some old favourites. Our contributors are real people, living real lives, striving to make a difference in the world.
I would like to thank Shirley Bittorf, whose SolePath is spiritual balance and inspirational teacher and Tim Cross who has a double spiritual SolePath, for their contribution to the creation of our first issue of n9ne magazine.
Each day is a new beginning, your new beginnings have already begun – can you see them?
