Events do not have meanings. Events are events, and meanings are thoughts....– Neale Donald Walsch
Do you really have an open mind?
There is certainly an evolution in everybody’s personal path from knowledge and experience, to wisdom, and even spirituality. Along the way, you also realize that there is a real story of mystery about mankind that is largely suppressed. At first you’ll think it’s through ignorance, but if you look into it deeper, it’s not through ignorance. There is a suppression of...

dayofbeauty: Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with...

Meditate to elevate your mental state
I’ll have to say that it’s been two years since I experimented with meditation and to tell you the truth, it was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life thus far. It’s opened up a sense of added awareness of the world around me, and more importantly, transformed the construct of my inner space… Cheers to a good life!
Are you more inclined to focus on the violence around the world or are we focusing on what we can/should do to make things better? That’s the interesting thing about humans… we’re capable of doing and focusing on either. It’s all choice. I choose to use the internet to get and share positive, stimulating ideas. For instance, did you know that Costa Rica is a very wise country, presided by...

anti-propaganda: Wall Street Protesters Should Instead Focus on the Federal Reserve ‘I’ve been closely following the loosely organized Occupy Wall Street protests on social media sites over the past few weeks. Now I’m all for citizen activism and freedom of assembly but I’m still unconvinced that most these protesters know what exactly their protesting. They’re angry about the state of...

universoul: To be coming from a hypnotherapist’s point of view, lately I’ve been filtering my experiences through the lenses of a hypnotist, how each and every one of us flows through the constructs of our surrounding environmental and social terrain, which invariably affects our psyche, and in turn influences the immune system, the endocrine system, gastrointestinal and, well, pretty much every...

Anger may not be quite the ‘basic’ emotion we think it is.The Utkuhikhalingmiut tribe of Inuit (Eskimos) and The Polynesians of Tahiti and surrounding islands do not express anger at one another, and look down upon it, in fact the closest translation for the Utkuhikhalingmiut word would be ‘childishness’. The Polynesians even demonize anger and regard it as going crazy....
Question your beliefs, your reason for existence. Question your will. What will become of you in the end? This is necessary for all of humanity, but most of us do not seek out an answer. We merely continue on, conforming to a society that creates a perpetual state of depression and increases the tendency towards suicide. Ask yourself, what are you doing it for?
