Life force energy is a common term, but few understand what it means. Life force energy is what animates the physical form of a person. It can also transcend the physical form.
Although it is often referred to as the person’s energy, very little is known about it, mainly because it remains intangible. It has a vibrant history going way back to the time when people knew very little about the world. Life force energy was known to the Egyptians as Aka, Prana to the Hindu, and Qi to the Chinese. All these rich cultural traditions have their own take as to how this spirit energy makes or breaks a person from the inside out.
Many people are familiar with the term “Prana” because of the practice of yoga. Prana energy is the invisible force that brings all creations together. It’s the cosmic energy behind every mysterious energy tradition. Prana energy experts believe that it is the force from within that amplifies every human...
Breath is an essential component of living. It is the first thing that a baby does when it is born, and the last thing we do before we die. In between, people spend their lives breathing. However, what most people do not realize is that it is one of the few things that the body does without the help of the brain and the heart.
Another fascinating thing is that our breathing is intimately connected to what we think and how we feel. Even though breath comes naturally, consciously learning how to breathe to heal helps you achieve the union between your physical body and your mind. It puts you in a position where you begin to realize who you are and what you are from deep inside.
Are you breathing to live, or are you breathing to heal?
If you genuinely want to understand what it means to live life, then you must explore the many benefits of prana yoga.
Pranayama is a popular and effective yoga breathing technique....
How does one describe Lucy?
What begins as a story of a woman with an average quite human consciousness and a short-lived boyfriend with a pretty sweet hat, very quickly transforms into a film about ascension.
So, as always - spoiler alert. Now let’s get into it!
The idea of Lucy is the rapid escalation from a low level of consciousness. It progressively moves into trying to describe what might happen if someone was to experience transcendent superconsciousness and unlocking new powers that come with it. It is a commentary both on theoretical human evolution and psychedelics very much psychedelics, LSD, to be specific. In a way, the whole movie seems to be based around it, allow me to explain.
In the opening narrative, we see cell mitosis, followed by a shot of Lucy - the 3.2 million-year-old first “early human,” Australopithecus, before quickly cutting to Lucy - the 25-year-old woman studying in Taipei.
Before we even go further - it...
The film that single-handedly kick-started the MCU and brought us nearly 20 movies in only ten years! What’s more curious, that while the movie may feature flashy egocentric concepts of luxury, explosions, random sex, and Tony's pompous attitude, under its surface is a film with a depth of hidden spiritual ideas.
Perhaps one of the most fundamental of these spiritual concepts would be the ascension of Tony from the lower centers, to the higher ones. The basic idea being that the smaller centers are governed by survival, sex, and willpower. From the very beginning, Tony is epitomized by these traits, and we see this over and over in how he treats everyone. From Rhode to Pepper to Obidiah and, of course, Christine Everhart from Vanity Fair. To him, people are just things that he can use to feel better about himself or to do the things for him that he doesn’t want to do so that he can focus on whatever he wants.
His mindset is demonstrated clearly...
Are you happy? If somebody were to ask you this question now, what do you think your answer would be? Perhaps you would say a quick “Yes” just to move on from the topic. However, stop and ask yourself that question. Am I really happy?
The concepts of “happiness” and “joy” are complicated, so if you are confused, you are not alone. Most people would say that they are happy, but at the back of their minds, they wonder if they really are. Besides, the bar for happiness varies from person to person.
Others are living a happier life because they feel that they have more than enough reason to be joyful. They feel blessed for having everything they could ever want in life. Even those who have little may feel like they have a lot. Perspectives vary, and it all boils down to what you feel inside.
There is no one answer to this question as everyone’s happiness comes in different stages and at...
Ahhh, interstellar, a simple classic movie, about a farmer his family Some dust and a transdimensional interstellar quantum gravitational space travel.
So the basis of this movie is that in the future, the earth has become a global dustbowl due to humanity being excessive. It’s mostly a commentary on monoculture farming, which we’ve explored in our food series. Primarily by farming the same thing on the same land over and over, you lose the majority of your nutrient base due to lack of plant diversity. You also lose your root system, making it easy for winds to pick up dirt and throw it for miles and miles. Interstellar begins with a warning - if we continue living the way we are, this could be our world.
So the film introduces us to our main characters, Cooper, or Coop for short, and his daughter Murph. Now, there’s an interesting thing in these opening scenes, where we see Murph's teacher talking to Coop about his daughter's progress in...
Final Fantasy 7 Heralded by millions today as one of the greatest videogames ever made. There is just no describing how potent this game is, no way to express the sheer impact honestly it’s had on the landscape of videogames and culture today, and how this game single-handedly transformed the art of storytelling and videogames forever.
Now, this video is intended to be an exploration of the hidden spirituality Within FF7, but to make it accessible for people who might not have heard of it, allow me to provide an incredibly brief overview of the plot. Fair warning - This will spoil everything.
The game begins as a simple story of an ex-soldier named Cloud Strife whose bleh disposition towards the world gets him a job as a mercenary running a bombing run of a large reactor within a large city, which is draining the planets life-force energy. The town is owned and operated by the Shinra corporation, using the power to fuel the city, make bank, and support the evil...
What is the first thing that you do when you wake up in the morning? Have you ever thought about your daily routine, and wonder what good comes of it? Perhaps, take a moment and do just that. May write about your daily routine if that helps you see everything you do. Think about how you go about your day, what you learn from each task, and what positive or negative things happen because of your daily decisions. Ask yourself, “What is wrong with my daily routine?” “What is good about my daily routine?” “Is my day-to-day helping me be my best self?”
Although these questions may seem too hard to ask yourself every day, it is vital to consider doing so on random occasions as not to fall negative or generally unhelpful routines. Keeping a routine can help a lot of people in their daily lives. However, sticking to that routine all the time hinders people from being as creative as they can be.
Sit down and write out your daily...
Are you the type of person who spends a lot of time thinking and analyzing things before you make a decision? Or are you the type who makes decisions based only on what's at hand and rushes into situations?
Getting lost in all the options at hand can be frustrating, and not knowing what the future holds is scary, but it doesn't always have to be. Perhaps all you need is to take a little more time, trust yourself a little bit more, and worry a little less about the future.
Taking any action can be frightening, but not making a choice can be even scarier.
Is "indecisive" one of the words that your friends would use describe you? Are you stuck at a point in your life where you can't figure out what to do next? You may have decision paralysis. Decision paralysis is the fear of making decisions.
If you don't start taking the initiative to make decisions, then you will end up becoming a prisoner of other people's whims. Your...
Avatar! Considered by many to be one of the most groundbreaking movies of our generation, it stands as a testament for how far our technology has come, allowing us to create and bear witness to new worlds as we’ve never seen them before. Yet, under the surface of the technological achievement of this film lies an intense undercurrent of hidden spirituality.
At the highest level of the movie, we see the story play out as a narrative between the dualistic nature of our human consciousness, and our relationship with our planet. You can describe this duality in ways such as Organic vs. Mechanic, the soft vs. The hard, the light vs. The dark, the enlightened vs. The asleep or alien vs. the native.
This dualistic theme is introduced to us by a look at how the human world has evolved, and a reflection of the same consciousness we have today that got us there. People are cold, and the earth has been polluted, there is no sign of things improving. Those in power are using...
