    4 Simple Life Lessons for a Complex World

    Do you sometimes wish that life would slow down and be a bit more on the simple side? Cell phones, laptops, the internet, tablets, 4G, blah, blah, blah. Do you ever feel that the demands of your day can take away from what you really want out of life? All the complex technology available to us today can be fantastic.

    Over-Talking: The Need to Talk Too Much

    I have found over the years of practicing Inner Bonding that the more I listen to myself, the less need I have for others to listen to me and hear me. Not that I don’t enjoy sharing with others, but there is a big difference between sharing and the over-talking that comes from not listening to yourself. I was having a Skype session with Tara. Tara is a lovely woman in her 40s, married with two children. She is very successful as the CEO of a clothing design company. Yet, in our first session, I immediately saw that Tara has a talking addiction. Once she starts, she goes on and…

    Laws of the Universe – Law of Rhythm

    The Law of Rhythm is probably one of the universal laws that a lot of people do not like. This one states that everything is in a rhythm, just as the tides go in and out at shore. There are rhythms with everything; bad times are followed by good times, night is followed by day, and down swings are followed by up swings. This is an easy law to understand, but not a favorite by most. But if you really break this down to its simplest form, you can see that if we did not have these rhythms in our lives than we wouldn’t understand our positive and upside to…

    Five Life Lessons From Candy Crush Saga

    Candy Crush Saga, the game app offered by King.com, is all the rage right now. Many players have found themselves hopelessly addicted to it – crushing striped, wrapped, and dancing candies into the wee hours of the night. We struggle to find the “power” candies and celebrate when we line up three or more like-colored candies to clear the board and move on to the next level. I have fallen victim to the Candy Crush craze and am committed to seeing it to the end (I think there are now over 400 levels, comprising about 30 episodes). And as I am playing through all hours of the night just trying…

    Peace of Mind

    Abiding Joy! Is there such thing? Where is it? Who possesses it? Yes – there is such thing, it is where there is no sin and is possessed by the pure hearted. Who wants suffering? Not a single being. All the beings in the universe love happiness. No one wants to lead miserable and unhappy life. Everyone in his own way is tiring to bring happiness and peace to him. Though the method adopted in the pursuit of their mission differs from man to man, yet their target is the same. And how strange it is that despite the fact that every effort is being directed to make the life…

    Illness: Can Trapped Emotions Cause Illness?

    There is very little attention given to emotions and feelings in the western world and the role that these play in whether the body is in a place of balance or imbalance. The typical approach is to look at things in isolation and what happens to the body is then a random occurrence. And while we all have a body and mind, these are often seen as being separate. They are not seen as working together or influencing each other. Through this perspective, the body can be seen as a ‘machine’ that operates randomly and has no reason for becoming out of balance. Genetics At least that was the case,…

    Perceptions of Reality

    The beliefs one holds, the ones one truly believes are what creates our perception of reality. Thus, reality is what we believe it to be! If you move away from being the source of your beliefs, your past or whatever dogma, rhetoric and media hype is playing takes over what you believe. Taking responsibility of being the source of your beliefs empowers you to be in charge of your life. Blaming others is looking for who was source and empowers others to dictate your perceptions, awareness and behavior. People can become stuck in the past to provide answers. Reversing the flow and giving answers to the past can be a…

    Speak From Your Heart With Kindness

    Each of us is graced with the most powerful gift. With it, we are able to make people soar out of orbit with happiness, or plummet to the earth with despair if we are careless. What is this almighty gift? It is the gift of words and the ability to communicate. As a society we often forget how powerful our words can be. We are occasionally reckless or too quick to speak, when we should take time to think about the consequences of our words. We are taught from childhood to think before we act, but sometimes neglect to think before we speak! Not to worry, this can be a…
