Eckhart Tolle

"The physical needs for food, water, shelter, clothing and basic comforts could be easily met for all humans on the planet, were it not for the imbalance of resources created by the insane and rapacious need for more, the greed of the ego." Eckhart Tolle

This is EXACTLY what’s WRONG with THIS GENERATION!

Th1ng Can Change Everything

We’ve lined the following video up to about 40 minutes into the interview.

If you click and watch the next 15 minutes, what you see and hear will take your breath away…

Are leaders made or born? Author and TED speaker Simon Sinek dispels myths about leadership and reveals the one thing that good leaders always get right on this episode of Inside Quest with Tom Bilyeu.

Combining aspects of biology and psychology within the context of the human condition, Simon Sinek’s unique approach to leadership has revealed surprising insights on how humans interact in business. His ideas have garnered critical acclaim around the world for their unparalleled potency and usability.

Simon’s lessons on leadership ring true, not only because he spent the better part of a decade systematically studying leaders, but because his transition from marketing consultant to evangelist for global change came as a result of a personal…

Justice for Chunky – stop people who abuse animals from owning ever again

Today I am a child of the Earth

https://www.change.org/p/rt-hon-theresa-may-mp-justice-for-chunky

yvwglcyceerxazz-800x450-nopad

This petition is for Chunky the Chihuahua who was attacked for hours in what the RSPCA called one of the most disturbing cases of animal abuse they had ever seen. Chunky was, over a period of hours, beaten and drugged, his neck was broken, he was set on fire and finally he was dumped and left for dead. Despite serious injury, and against all odds, Chunky lived. The people who committed this abuse were only banned from keeping animals for five years. As an animal lover, who once owned a dog just like Chunky, I found this story highly upsetting. What shocked me is that these abusers and others like them will be able to own an animal again one day. There’s nothing to prevent them doing this again. I’m asking that anyone who abuses animals, regardless of their age, be placed on an Animal Cruelty Register which would…

Keep the oil in the ground

Today I am a child of the Earth

Sign the petition to keep the oil in the ground in the amazon: http://amazonwatch.org/take-action/keep-the-oil-in-the-ground-in-the-amazon

Humanity’s survival depends on not burning two-thirds of our global oil reserves, so we must act now by limiting fossil fuel extraction. The highly bio-diverse Amazon basin is a keystone area in combating climate change because it regulates our planet’s health and drives global weather patterns. Preserving regions most critical for our survival—from the Amazon to the Arctic—is the solution to avoiding climate chaos. That’s why we are globally calling to KEEP THE OIL IN THE GROUND, starting with the Amazon.

Please, act today and share this video with everyone you know who likes to breathe air.

The Gift of Presence

meagan e. lee

f

the mess of life points to the beauty

The more I explore my introverted nature, I realize that the gift of my presence is one of the most valuable things I can give. In my spare time, I can choose to do a lot of things that I love, and up at the top of that list is staying home on the couch cuddling up with a good book, or a cute husband, or an even cuter puppy. (Just kidding, Josh is the cuterest.) The valuable hours between when I get home from work and go to sleep are very limited. So, when I choose to go somewhere, it is certainly a sacrifice of varying sorts and magnitudes.

Last night, I planned a celebration for my Birthday Eve Eve. Yeah, it’s a real thing that I made up. In the past, I’ve been hesitant to do these things for the fear that nobody would show up. I…

Movement vs. Action

Oscar Relentos

My life’s gained quite a bit of overall activity as of late, and in the midst of all this activity I’m reminded of an Ernest Hemingway quote that I’ve loved for a very long time, which is that we must “Never confuse movement with action.”

Hemingway was famous for having a very active lifestyle. He traveled all over the globe. He reported on the Spanish Civil War. He went on safari in Africa. He interacted with countless lives, had countless adventures, basically any words I write can only bring forth bland images of his vibrant life well-lived. I could only dream of living quite so active a life, but I’m sure some people out there will be blessed enough to live just as fully as Hemingway did.

I’ve done my best to stay in a state of doing in my life, I just try to stay moving as much as…

Light, Life, Love

Espirational Faith

Life-Light-Love

 

Imagine being in a complete void, with absolutely nothing else there except you. You have no physical body to be touched nor to touch other objects; and, in fact, it would have no use for there is nothing else to touch, observe or hear. There is no light, so even if there were physical objects you could not see them for in the physical world it takes light to give objects their ability to be seen. There is not even any sound, except for the consistent, incessant hum which seems to be coming from your own existence sounding like a continuous low, rumbling “iammmmmm” or “ommmmmm” emitting from within you. Then slowly over unknown expanses of time, whatever that is, questions start forming in you like, “I am. But if I am, then what am I?” and “If I am here, then where am I?” and “Why am…
