HAVE FAITH AND FOLLOW YOUR BLISS

I read a lot about what others think is the best way to live. I have spent countless hours studying spirituality, philosophy, psychology, history, and literature trying to learn about how people live satisfying lives. Even though there is no one "right" way to live,...

SHOULD EVERYONE PRACTICE YOGA?

WHY WE WILL EVENTUALLY HAVE COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS

I don't know about you, but I really love Star Trek. It's really idealistic and depicts a future society that is much more socially evolved. It's set in the future and takes place in space. This really works for me because sometimes I get really bored of my own...

I feel like a lot of the time spirituality is seen as an exclusive club. It is a club reserved for a select few who do certain things that are viewed as spiritual. Aren't we all made up of the same physical and spiritual stuff? So how can one person be more...

HOW TO MOVE FROM FRAGMENTATION TO CONNECTEDNESS

5 WAYS TO KEEP AN OPEN MIND

All of us have had times when we've jumped on the newest, shiniest trend.  Whether it be spiritually, professionally, or with any idea really, it can be easy to grab onto something and think "This is it! I've found the answer!" But when we do this, we let the chosen...
