Webinar: Embodying Spirituality

The concept of embodying spirituality is getting talked about a lot these days, and I wanted to have a webinar to hopefully help you understand this idea. On the one hand, it is an impossibility because we are all inherently spiritual. In this way, we are approaching the discussion from the space of what I call "higher truth." This is important because we want to connect with the truest Truth first. From that space, we come back to the truth of the moment. In our daily lives, we then can sense what feels most trust to our bodies from a clear perspective. When we have this connection to oneness and Truth, the practice of embodying spirituality in our … [Read Entire Story]

Does the Good Life Lead to a Happy Life?

Everybody wants that thing called “a good life.” Well here’s my question, what does that even mean? Exactly what is it that moves a life from “an average life” to “the good life”? For that matter, who gets to decide what constitutes a good life? If you asked a hundred people those questions, chances are you would get a hundred different answers. But even in the variety of answers, you would find several common areas that are important to almost everybody. So, while your definition may vary from mine, there are many things that we would both consider necessary for the good life. Do you feel like you are already living… [Read Entire Story]

Too Much Zen Could Kill You

During the past couple of years, I’ve been trying to live life more consciously. I thought a lot about the purpose of life. I became vegan so I’d remove the fog in my head and think more clearly. I studied people, their behavior. Minor stuff didn’t matter anymore compared to the stuff I used to think of. I studied religions, believes, philosophies.. I visited new places. I saw how other people live. I felt like I finally understood life. I saw life from a third person view. From God’s view. I saw life naked. And it wasn’t beautiful. I became too conscious. Naked life was black and white. Dirty. Meaningless. Nothing… [Read Entire Story]

The Butterfly Project

A couple of years ago, an anonymous person on Omegle sent me a photo and asked me to share it. It was a low quality photo of The Butterfly Project, explaining what the project is about and its rules. I instantly fell in love with the idea, and I started googling and reading more about it. I found its facebook page, which had a poor profile picture and no cover. So I made the photos above and below and sent them to the page’s admin in a private message. The facebook page isn’t active much anymore, but the presence of The Butterfly Project… [Read Entire Story]

Sciences

If you look at the human body very closely, reaching the molecular/atomic level, you can study its chemistry and the way its atoms and molecules interact with each other. If you take a step back into the cellular level, you’d be studying its biology and the way it works as a connected organism.Take another … [Read Entire Story]

Innocence

(a friend of mine whom I met online around two years ago sent me this article to post it on my blog. She disappeared the next day without completing the article and I never heard of her after that. Jemma, I hope you still read my blog) Innocence-the thought of it just makes me think at how much better the world would be right now had humanity not profited in the… [Read Entire Story]

Where’s Your Focus?

How good are you at focusing your time and attention toward things that really matter?  In a world full of constant distractions, how often do you find yourself struggling to maintain your focus on the things that are truly important to you personally? The connection between what we choose to focus on and our current reality is often misunderstood. Increasingly, productivity is being replaced by busy work and as a result, feelings of frustration are overtaking our sense of accomplishment.  Learning to purposely direct your focus will make it possible to reverse this trend. Focusing on priorities while avoiding distractions Understanding … [Read Entire Story]

Invisible Kony: A Noble Cause Or A Marketing Campaign?

Unless you have been living in a cocoon in the past few days, or have just woke up from hibernation, you must have heard of the viral “Stop Kony” campaign, and must have watched its 30 minutes short movie on YouTube. This article’s goal is to raise awareness about the inaccurate and misleading aspects of the campaign. So if you haven’t watched the movie, you can safely stop reading now. Frankly, I didn’t watched the movie until a few days ago. I’m a bit resistant to everything viral. But when I finally watched it, I immediately felt that there was something wrong. Hence, here I am… [Read Entire Story]

Question Everything

Question Everything by dullhunk One of the key habits that you must cultivate in order to live consciously is to question everything and not to accept anything that comes your way. I’ve always been the kind of person who questions the status quo and wonders why things are done the way they’re done. I always used to wonder: “why do we have to sleep all that time?”, “why should we learn everything in school?” … [Read Entire Story]

Why You Don’t Want To Be Happy

Why am I here? A question that have kept people awake at night since the beginning of human life (or at least since humans started to think). Some people compromise their life purpose to: losing weight, making lots of money, having a successful career or finding their soul mate. Or more simply: “being happy”. But in reality, happiness is in fact a negative form of energy. WHY??! Let me ‘splain… No, there is too … [Read Entire Story]

Why It’s a Great Idea to Have Basic Food Storage

If you’ve ever seen a friend’s perfectly organized kitchen pantry or a closet dedicated to food storage, it can be easy to get discouraged about your non-existent food storage. However, food storage and disaster food prep can be easy if it is broken down into manageable steps. It’s difficult to ignore the various natural disasters occurring worldwide. Sometimes families, neighborhoods, and whole towns are forced to rely on whatever they have at home to get them through an emergency situation before additional resources arrive. Besides being essential in an emergency, food storage is a excellent resource if the breadwinners in the home are laid off and unable to purchase as many groceries as usual. Coming up… [Read Entire Story]

Eat Blindfolded!

Photo credit: yellowcrayola You HAVE to try this! Just now, I was eating an apple.. Just an ordinary apple. And suddenly decided to close my eyes. Simply because I was tired. But to my surprise, the apple went from normal-tasting apple into super-delicious apple instantly! I opened my eyes again.. Back to normal apple. Closed my eyes.. Pure joy in the form of an apple xD I wondered if this works with other food too.. And it did! My theory is that when you close your eyes, you give more attention to the food you’re eating and thus enjoy it … [Read Entire Story]

Just Close Your Eyes

Following on the recent Eat Blindfolded post, I decided to dig more in the world of closed-eyeness. And the results were simply fascinating.. Almost to the point where I began to envy blind people for the numerous opportunities they have. The previous article only covered the effect of closing our eyes on the way we taste and enjoy food. This one though will mention the other areas that closing your eyes could effect. 1. Music I bet you all know this one. Simply put: Obviously, closing your eyes while listening to music enhances your experience and thus making you enjoy the music more. A few days ago, I was listening to live music and I thought I’d try something. I closed my eyes and started… [Read Entire Story]

Life Drugs

People usually consume drugs and alcohol not only because it makes them happy for a short period of time but also because it makes them lose track of time. It makes them forget about the miserable life they’re having. Drugs for them is an escape. A way to “ignore” life. When you think about it, the same applies for sleeping, eating, tv, internet.. They’re all… [Read Entire Story]

Why Do We Hate?

Whether it’s joy, sadness, envy, excitement… There’s a reason behind every human emotion. Sometimes the reason is clear and obvious, and sometimes we need to introspect to figure it out. So why do we hate? What’s the reason/purpose behind it? We’re talking here about hating people, not an object or a situation.. For the sake of this article, I want you to think of someone you hate. Any random person in your life, someone you don’t like. A name just popped in your head. That’s the person we need. Now I want you to think: why do you hate this person? You can open a notepad and jot down all the reasons you can think of. You will… [Read Entire Story]
