Hope, Life, Spirituality

This is an awesome TED talk about how your beliefs can affect your body, and how your mindset about stress can make it either deadly or helpful to your health. As I’ve written previously on the power of thoughts and beliefs, I feel that we can heal ourselves and each other with a change in […]

There’s another another reddit thread from 9 months ago similar to the one here that is also pretty interesting. Some highlights: Getting my two and a half year old daughter out of the bath one night, my wife and I were briefing her on how important it was she kept her privates clean. She casually […]

I’ve been reading this thread on reddit today, and I am fascinated by the stories. There are lots of ghost and supernatural stories, and though they could be totally made up, it’s still fun to think about how we come to this reality as souls/entities and choose our bodies. Aidan likes to stare off into […]

Forgiveness comes with understanding, enlightenment, and love. Lots of love. You, too, are a beautifully flawed human being. You, too, cause needless suffering in others. You are sometimes cruel. But you exist, and you have consciousness. That is an amazing thing if you step back and realize it. Nobody is perfect. Not you. Not me. […]

Various “first-world problems” like your cell phone dying or getting […]

It was night, and my dream began at night. The sky above glowed dark, a round black sun in the center of the world. I fell through a tunnel, and emerged at the other end of the black hole into a bright golden sun, the same size and shape, a mirror universe. It was somewhat […]

I have always loved ideas and theories, new and old. Science aspires to uncover via observation, experimentation, and applying the scientific method in a systematic and logical fashion. When reading the Law of One and other texts of a similar nature, I mentally search for ways to connect the material back to scientific knowledge. For […]

“The proper teaching is recognized with ease. You can know it without fail because it awakens within you that sensation which tells you this is something you’ve always known. Life — all life — is in the service of life. If you need something to worship, then worship life — all life, every last crawling […]
