Don't you sometimes have a different picture of your Self than what other people see in you? Oh yeah, you have been taught to put your best face forward, act a certain way to fit in, wear certain clothes with the right label, wear the same things the stars wear, and you will be seen as successful as them! All the blah, blah, blah stuff that prevents not only you but others from 'seeing' the perfect picture of you!What is the perfect picture of you? Is it the one speaks volumes of who you are or who you are not. Is it a picture of someone else's idea of you? Is the picture something you can not relate to when you look into the mirror? These are great questions to ask your Self.
What, in fact, are you picturing about your Self? Do you picture your Self su...

Are our dreams merely subconscious thoughts suppressed by our consciousness, exploring activities of the last 24 hours brought on by heavy or spicy meals as some dream experts say? If we view dreams as a one-dimensional conception, we will never understand the complexities of dreaming that helps explain our lives as connected to the cosmos. Some dreams do have a feeling of simplicity that they are just that: a dream.Dreams, however, can consist of different compositions and textures. Those waking up during a dream to say, 'I think I'm dreaming,' are or have become consciously aware of being in their 'dream' or out-of-body (OBE) state. Are they a viewer, a participant, or a generator of the dream? Are they all three? This 'dream' then comes from and into conscious awareness, not s...

Personally, today isn't a day to celebrate wars. It is to celebrate bravery that so many exhibit at their own peril. They stay behind with fallen comrades to ensure their survival when bombs might also kill them. They trudge through a barrage of bullets, carrying fallen companions to give them respect by not leaving their dead bodies behind. These are the moments that media sometimes reports that swell our hearts with pride for the shining character of our fellow human beings.One film that showed the height to which human beings can rise during degrading conditions is Passchendaele. Canadian Actor, Paul Gross wrote, co-produced, directed, and starred in the 2008 Canadian war film. Passchendaele focuses on war experiences told to him by his grandfather, Michael D...

Yoga is a discipline that is suited for almost everyone at almost any age to enhance one's health and well-being. It can be anything you want and need, calming, energizing, invigorating, relaxing. Yoga will make you feel better on all levels, physically, emotionally, mentally, even spiritually if you wish. The key to reaping the benefits of yoga is of course proper instruction.

If you are a total novice to yoga it is not advised to start your practice by watching a video or TV show nor by simply 'popping' into any established yoga class. You WILL need a good, experienced, qualified personal instructor who will take the time to address your personal needs with a class that is geared towards beginners. Following this advise your success is almost guar...

May 21, 2011 at precisely 6:00 p.m. nothing out of the ordinary happened. Most of us could make that prediction with 100% accuracy, especially since the same individual predicted the same thing in 1994. If at first, we don't succeed. . . . Although it is possible that the biblically predicted 144,000 people being 'Raptured,' out of almost seven billion could occur without anyone noticing. If it were done one by one in remote places, not in a mass grouping. The news media, however, isn't reporting isolated disappearances—yet.No doubt Reverend Harold Camping was sincere. He reads the Bible literally, where others read it allegorically or skeptically. Checking the Internet for name spelling garnered many denouncements of his heresy as a false prophet. To be fair, not checking ...

No doubt, technological advancements have benefits. People live longer today because science has shown cancer causing effects of tobacco when they were highly touted decades ago. We now know that too much cholesterol clogs arteries when in yesteryear days began with healthy doses of eggs, bacon, biscuits, and gravy. Even the World Wide Web reveals to citizens what leaders are perpetrating along with those instant photos of newborn grandchildren.What seems unfortunate, though, says something destructive about where life has brought us in this 500-channel television and Internet age where too much space has truly become the feared wasteland. Some very unhappy, lonely, and neglected people easily get attention through some sleazy television reality shows and some social network site...

Posted: May 19, 2011 most cherished moments are spending the night in the wilderness, curled up in my small backpacking tent or even just sleeping under the stars. I call it my 'wilderness therapy'. There is a sacred silence to be experienced that does not exist anywhere else, that makes me drink in the oneness with all, the interconnectedness of all beings, trees, mountains, air, water, space. Here it is where I find my happiness, where nothing else matters, where all worries simply vanish.....excerpt from Living an Insp...

It's Maundy Thursday once again and time to celebrate the Eucharist of The Last Supper where Jesus gave his disciples bread, saying, 'This is my body,' and wine, saying, 'This is my blood.' Today, Christians celebrate this tradition with a communion of crackers and grape juice, most without a second thought as to its origin. Yet, a few might still wonder why a ritual so blatantly cannibalistic would be accepted without question into modern day. Most are shocked to learn this tradition descends to us from sacrificial sun rites, the drinking of serpent venom and the consumption of psychotropic plants to induce visions - all under the guise of winemaking and communal consumption.

One of my favorite British actors, Dudley Moore, would have been 76 today. He was born on April 19, 1935.Can't believe he's been gone 9 years already, seems like just yesterday I heard the news.One of the funniest, most talented people to ever live, Dudley stood 5'2½' tall, often made fun of his own height, and most certainly deserved the nickname of 'Cuddly Dudley'.I was touched to see that his gravestone reads 'Cherished Friend, Celebrated Musician, Actor and Comedian'.Probably best known for his role in the movies 10, Arthur, Bedazzled, ...
