If you could give your younger self advice on how to survive life, what would it be? Like everyone else who has grown up and matured, there must be a thing or two you want to tell your younger self. If you only knew about it when you were younger, perhaps your life would have turned out differently.
As they say, the best advice for life is what you can give yourself based on what you learned. But then again, you can move forward with life and achieve most of your life’s goals when you get and utilize the advice from your elders. Their success stories will definitely teach you what to do and what not to do.
The best advice for teens is this: keep an open heart and teach yourself to listen. These are the two best combinations for a great life. An open heart will help you accept the challenge of living a good life. It doesn’t have to be a perfect one, but it has to be a life that teaches you happiness and gratitude. Your...
As a parent, you can be your children's guide to meditation. You can impress upon them the benefits of the same. However, if you are a teacher, a babysitter, or a grandparent, do not shy away from meditating with the children under your care. It is the best gift they can receive from you, excluding, of course, a baby activity mat.
Are you worried about how your kid will grow up? Are you concerned about their temperament and behavior? There is a single resolution to all this—meditation! There are several benefits of meditation, all of which will help them grow into calm, responsible, and smart individuals.
Let us look at the different ways you can meditate with your kids.
Children, by nature, are fidgety and restless. There are very few kids who are willing to sit quietly in one place for more than a minute or two. Meditation of any sort requires patience on their part. Children's meditation benefits are immense, but only if...
In 2018, a book entitled The Quantum Hermetica was published documenting astonishing yet distinct parallels between modern physics and an ancient Egyptian occult science known as Hermeticism. It may be difficult to imagine how these two topics are even related to each other much less closely parallel each other yet the book lays out the case that the latter can be derived from the former. One is our most fundamental science and the other incorporates such subjects as well, magic. Yet The Quantum Hermetica sources all of its research with hard up to date science. So how can this be?
The seeming conflict between the two arises from our twin assumptions that science operates in a naïve realist and materialist paradigm and that esotericism or occultism is just fuzzy mysticism. If science operates in a materialistic framework then of course it is incompatible with the paranormal phenomenon. However, does science require a materialistic framework? The answer to this is what The...
How do you free yourself from debt? Debt may be just a four-letter word, but it is one of the emotionally charged words in the English vocabulary. Whenever people hear the word debt, it initially brings about feelings of anxiety, shame, and sometimes even guilt.
While one’s emotional reaction to the word is dependent on their current financial status, people who find themselves with a substantial financial problem cannot help but worry. Many people who are drowning in debt can also feel trapped to the point that they have become hopeless.
If you feel the same way, then you are not alone. The number of those struggling financially is growing by the minute. Most of them have fallen victim to credit card debt. They have been living way beyond their means, and they didn’t realize it until it was too late.
While it may seem as if your debt status has reached the path of no return, there is still hope that you can...
What am I good at? It can be frustrating when everyone else around you seems to have their lives in order when you're still figuring out what you're supposed to be doing with your life.
Why is it so hard to determine your purpose for living? There is certainly no shortage when it comes to questions that need thorough answers. There is no limit to the number of problems you have to deal with.
Although everything seems to be a challenge these days, there is one thing that is true for all: as much as there are problems in the world left to solve, there are also a significant number of people who could help, support, and inspire you to keep moving forward.
What is life all about? No, there is no limit to the passions you can pursue. But when it still feels like our life's purpose is out of view, all you need to do is stop. Take a moment to breathe in what life gives you.
It could be exhausting to compare your needs to that of the world's...
Did you know that a significant number of people all over the world are still afraid of being alone? Maybe to an extent, all of us have this unexplainable fear of being left on our own.
People fear the thought of living without family or friends. Some worry about growing old alone, or not being intimate with anyone. We have this fear of traveling to a new place and getting lost because we have no one to ask directions. People think that when they are alone, they are a failure.
Although it is natural to fear being alone, you must learn to be alone. We desperately try to avoid feeling this fear, but it sometimes comes naturally for humans to want to be with other people.
Sadly, this trepidation causes many people unnecessary misery. In their desire to avoid being alone, they socialize most of the time, whether in person, face to face, or through social media sites. To prevent growing old alone, they marry someone they barely know and end up in an...
You are busy. You have a long list of things you need to do. You spend the whole day doing the things that need to be done. You feel tired at the end of the day, but you don't feel fulfilled at all. So, have you been productive?
Perhaps you have equated exhaustion with the idea of productivity. When you feel tired at the end of the day, that means you have done everything you could to become productive in your own right. But is this true? Does it apply to all?
When you ask yourself how to have a productive day, do you only have work-related tasks in mind? Or do you also consider all the personal things you also take care of during the day?
When it comes to mindset management, one of the things that you should learn to do is to disassociate tiredness with productivity. It is not one and the same. You can feel tired even if you have not truly accomplished the task at hand.
How did you go about the day? Your mindset is what controls...
Everyone procrastinates. No matter how young or old you are, we all find ways to delay a few tasks until they are due.
Perhaps you have decided to put off working on a big project at work by working on the easier, less critical tasks on your docket. They give you a sense of accomplishment because you can complete them quickly. And yet, at the back of your mind, you know that you still have to work on that big task, and it's going to require a lot from you.
To be honest, you know that you will have to deal with the effects of procrastination at the end of the day. However, you know how to solve your problem. You simply have to identify the most crucial task of the day, clear away everything else, and break it down into smaller, more manageable tasks.
These are not easy solutions, but whatever solutions you choose to utilize, they only work if you keep yourself aware of what you are and are not doing. Simply put, you won't be able to ...
Why is it essential to achieve a well-balanced life? Making a good life is much like a balancing act. You are always just one step away from taking a fall. As you continuously try to push yourself forward to hopefully achieve your life’s purpose, you are also trying to keep harmony in the other aspects of your life.
The importance of work-life balance is often overlooked. People tend to give more energy to their work and shortchange the other aspects of their life. Though this is common practice, it is not something that should be continuously done. Because in the end, something will have to give.
The best thing to do is take on areas of your life that are eating too much energy and put them in perspective. Ask yourself, why does it require more from you? Align your perspectives and keep everything within the right balance. Soon, you will have enough energy to cover everything you need.
Perhaps the first thing that you...
While there's the desire to show compassion to everyone we meet, a side of you also seems to feel otherwise for some people. You find it easier to dislike them because their existence irritates you. But what is it about them that you find irritating?
Learning how to be selfless is difficult. It is a challenge not because you don't want to do it, but because you've become too focused on yourself.
When you begin to demand things to be like this and like that and don't get away with what you want, you feel you are not getting what you deserve.
But have you ever thought of the fact that maybe the problem is not other people? Perhaps the problem is that you demand too much from others.
Learning how to be less selfish all begins by recognizing the moments when you are most self-centered. These moments usually come in the form of thoughts before you decide to turn them into actions and reactions.
Here is a list of the selfish thoughts that fill...
