Folks are trying new things all the time, and they'll either stick with 'em or they won't. I think its strange how whenever I'd quit something, I used to (and sometimes still do) feel like a failure. For example, when I try a new diet or exercise routine, sometimes I feel badly about myself when I learn that my new activity is really hard for me in some respect, either because I can't focus, don't want to, or simply don't like it. I would entertain thoughts like: "What's wrong with me," "If everyone else does it, then I should be... Continue reading

In my online searching I stumbled upon this product: http://www.greensfirst.com/5102/gf_content2_2011.asp?node=2 It is an organic powder full of nutrients from superfoods. After becoming interested in and reading about hollistic health this month, it seems clear that in my daily diet, even eating plenty of organic fruits and vegetables, it is difficult to get everything that my body needs for nourishment. Perhaps I shall try this and let you know how it goes. =) Continue reading

Concepts are notions or ideas we have about something or someone. I believe that I must shed my concepts in order to obtain a peaceful life. For me, a concept of mine can usually be identified if I notice that I am judging, trying to change things, or expecting something. In particular the concept that struck me today was the concept of a "bad driver", which was brought up while sitting in traffic. Even the term alone "bad driver" implies that someone is either good or bad at driving period. It doesn't take into account that people are better on... Continue reading

As I enter the New Year, I like to take the opportunity to set new goals. If you also want to take this time to set some goals for yourself, here are some tips that help me stay on track to meet my own goals: Set only 1-2 goals at a time. For example, let's say our goals are to (1) get in shape, (2) eat healthier, (3) meditate daily, and (4) get finances in order. My suggestion would be to focus on only one of these at a time until a habit has been developed. It is much easier... Continue reading

This practice helps to focus the mind on one point, so that all other thoughts are cleared. I find that this practice helps me focus on where in my body I am currently experiencing tension. There is no one right way to practice meditation in my experience, so I try as many different techniques as possible and see how each one affects me differently. Materials: Tissues, Candle, Matches or Lighter, Cushion or Chair/Table, Timer 1. Find a quiet place to sit without distraction and prepare the space by dimming the lights and placing a candle on the floor in front... Continue reading

To me meditation is a form of prayer. By relaxing and clearing my mind of thought I can be in touch with the oneness of humanity; I can actually feel my connectedness with divine love. Meditation is the opportunity to connect with God, and I believe a meditation practice can apply to any one, and to any and all religions. I have learned that the goal of a meditation practice is to calm the mind in order to become clearer in life, remaining joyful all the time, and to me God is joy. Meditation reduces anxiety and stress, and taking... Continue reading
