How far does the Universe go? What is beyond the farthest galaxy? Is it just vast nothingness? I know this Universe is huge, but compared to all of the possibilities I could imagine, the way we view our Universe actually seems rather limiting. Even if it were a quadrillion-trillion lightyears of galaxies, it still doesn't seem all that vast compared with what it could be. Why is the Universe not filled with flying fish? Or galactic trees? Or alternative laws of physics? I know these ideas are absurd, but it seems odd that a thing within the Universe can imagine more possibilities than what the infinite Universe possesses. Doesn't that break the laws of logic? It feels like the Universe should be too big for me to even comprehend its possibility, considering I am just a speck in size.
Suppose then the Universe is infinite. I like this concept because it feels both elegant in its simplicity yet equally...
How do you make that significant shift from a life of addiction to a life of practicing yoga? There have been numerous programs involving yoga for recovery, but very little is known about how it does its magic.
While this Eastern tradition of healing may improve physical health, it has also become a great way to help find mental, emotional, and spiritual healing. This is the reason why a lot of institutions incorporate yoga and meditation for recovery.
It would help if you introduced yoga and mindfulness meditation into your recovery program early on. As you progress, yoga and meditation therapy should become a part of your regular practice. When you are ready to return to your normal life, not only will you have recovered from your drug or alcohol addiction, but you will have found a practice that will help you deal with the stress of the real world.
Early recovery for addicts can bring about...
When was the first time you heard the word "namaste?" Like most of the others who have become familiar with the term, it is the word that signals the end of a yoga session. The yoga namaste is a term that exudes respect and reverence for the Divine. It is a way to see and honor the reality that others live in.
Namaste—even though it is a word that you often hear at the end of every yoga session, in truth, you use it almost all the time. But do you know what it really means?
What is namaste? It has been popularly associated with yoga, but little is known of its role in practice. The rich traditions of yoga create an opportunity for people to dig deeper into themselves.
Through yoga, people can understand the meaning behind the things they have around them. It helps them learn more about what they think and how they feel at the moment.
The practice of yoga is more than just physical exercise. It is about...
How do you spend most of your time? Do you spend it at work doing what others expect of you? Do you spend as much time with your family? The truth is that you spend most of your time doing neither of these.
Technically, you spend most of your time with yourself. This is why life mantras are essential because they help you keep yourself together, especially during trying times. And because you are the source of love and light for yourself, you have to be very careful about the words and the tone you use when speaking to yourself.
Your internal dialogue should speak of affirmations for self-love. You cannot be telling yourself you cannot do something and still expect it to have the same effect. What you tell yourself after a disappointment should embody affirmations for confidence.
Words have power, and that's why you should carefully consider every word you use. The language you use when speaking to yourself is a reflection of how you feel...
Everyone wishes for world peace. It has become such a familiar answer in beauty pageants that people laugh at the thought of it. But did you know that finding world peace is dependent on your ability to find inner peace?
If the world's serenity rests in your hands, do you think you will be able to contribute to achieving it? It is fairly easy for people to talk about finding inner peace. Many people use the term loosely as if it were interchangeable with spiritual peace.
But there is something more to it that every person needs to understand.
If you find yourself in these situations, will you be able to keep your inner peace?
Dreams can be both fascinating and terrifying at the same time. There are moments when you wake up in the middle of the night, not knowing what to do because you just had a frightful dream. While you may have read many facts behind dreams, there are specific dreams that no expert can explain.
Why do people dream? Some believe that dreaming is a way of the subconscious to send a message. Others believe that dreaming is the Divine way of showing you what life would be like when you are at the crossroads of your life.
And yet, there has been no consensus as to why people dream. However, several exciting dream facts have been learned over the years through research about dreams and dreaming.
Here are some human dreams facts you should take a look at:
Did you know that babies spend two to three hours of their sleeping time at night somewhere in dreamland, no matter how young they are? Both adults and babies experience...
What does it mean to cleanse your body? You hear about it all the time. When you get sick, people will tell you that you need to go through some cleansing to heal your body and soul. And they are right. Cleaning your body helps get rid of germs and bacteria. But cleansing your soul and karma is a little more complicated.
There are various methods for cleansing, each one targeting a particular aspect of your being. Some people believe that drinking fruit juices with pure lemon, cayenne, and water will help cleanse the body from within. However, when it comes to cleansing your physical body, it is essential to consult a doctor on how it can be done appropriately. They can tell you if the method of your choice is healthy. But cleansing is not just about what your physical body needs.
Determining the kind of cleansing you need is the first step to bringing change in your life. The point of cleansing is always two-fold. It should be about...
What is the first thing that you notice about the world when you wake up in the morning? Perhaps you don't pay much attention to these details because half of your brain is awake, but the other half is still in dreamland.
Your brain seems to have a light switch inside of it. When turned off, you don't notice a lot. But when it is on, you practically see and hear everything. You only start to notice the possibilities, perspectives, and potential of the day and others around you when your brain works as it should.
While your brain works perfectly fine, from time to time, people need a brain boost to be able to harness their power and gain better focus. Enhance the internal connection that you have with your brain and allow it to bring you to success.
You may have heard of life mantras and how they have helped people make a quick shift from a bad perspective to something with a renewed sense of hope. There is a mantra for practically...
Who doesn't believe that a peaceful mind means a peaceful life? When your mind is in chaos, that's when you feel like your whole life is a mess too. It's like your thoughts are bugging you all the time.
When things go wrong, people tend to focus only on the bad things that are happening. They worry about how it would affect their life in the future. It's like they are always against what fate brings.
Why do people worry too much? Because most of them think it is easier to wallow in pain and misfortune than to work to improve one's condition. Instead of fighting back, they allow all negative thoughts to overcome them.
The problem with letting negative thoughts and emotions control you is that it will become difficult to find spiritual peace. The problem does not stop there. Negative thoughts are bad for your overall health and well-being.
But how do you teach yourself the ways on how to be peaceful in life? Learning how to live a...

I've been reading about gravity, and I was surprised about how much I did not know. Perhaps you will be just as surprised as I was about some of these gravity facts as I was. Some I don't completely understand, but I will share with you my basic understanding in the hopes it will inspire you to learn more from other sources.
Do you know why astronauts float around in space, like those on the International Space Station or in a rocket ship? Most people assume it is because there is no gravity in space (that's what I had thought too!), but actually, this is not the case. The space station and all the rocket launches since Apollo are still close enough to Earth that they retain 90% of their gravity. They are only 200 miles up. The reason why these astronauts can "float around" has nothing to do with them being in space; it is actually because they are orbiting Earth (rotating around it). This flying around the planet...
