In the previous two blogs we looked at the information-based “virtual” nature of reality, and how what we call physical spacetime is actually an emergent construct derived from a collective inner mental space described by quantum cognition which could be equated with “Hilbert space.” This elegantly replicated the Hermetic principles of Mentalism and Correspondence. The outer physical world emerges from a collective inner mental world, or As Within, So Without.
In today’s blog, that theory will be expanded on a bit by looking at something known as the Hermetic Kabbalah. A rather shocking surprise will appear along the way. When we explore this something will show up that cannot possibly be there but is anyway.
Alongside the more philosophically oriented Neoplatonism, Hermeticism and Kabbalah form the two main systems of Western esotericism. Rather than being competing systems however, the two can be integrated quite neatly into...
The mystery that comes with every deck of tarot cards has fascinated people for centuries. The cards have been referenced as future reading cards giving anyone who holds a deck the power to foretell the future.
Every deck of tarot cards is composed of 78 magical cards. It is something that you can see and touch, which makes it even more exciting. It is like holding your future in your hands, a little bit more defined than mere guessing.
Although many believe in the power of tarot cards, there are still those who were blinded and misguided because of myths that have been associated with them. Most of these are baseless superstitions that know very little of the power that is in every card.
While its use may be full of mystery and magic, the unexplainable feature of every tarot card has left it out in the open for unwarranted judgment.
Some people believe in the dangers of tarot cards. They think...
Apart from being considered the focal point of the front exterior part of your home, the main door serves as the entrance to everything you let in your home. According to Vastu for home entrance, the main door of your home is what will bring in all the positive energy you need.
The main door serves as the transition zone through which you enter from the outside realm. It is also the place where good luck and happiness enters your house.
Consequently, the house's main entrance is of prime importance as it leads cosmic energy into your home. It is the same energy that brings about good health, wealth, and luck.
While your front door is usually aesthetically vital as it is the first impression people have of your home, the Vastu Shastra believes the door is more than just its appeal.
Do you know where your main door is facing? While it may seem easy to say that it faces the street where your...
The science of breathing is considered one of the oldest yet the most accurate science in Indian civilization. Also known as the “Swar Vigyan,” our human ancestors have lived through this scientific practice, and the results have been amazing.
While many say that there is a lot more to health than proper breathing, this science opens the doors for several healing opportunities. The human body is so complex that even though people think they have discovered everything about it, there remains to be a part of it that is still a mystery. Even after years of trying to decode the very system that keeps a person alive, a lot still remains for the human mind to explore.
Although people still know very little about how their body works, their lives will become simpler, knowing which aspects to focus on. You will be free from human-created obstacles when you look into the science of breathing for complete healing.
How often do you feel like you’re life’s one big mess? Your house is full of clutter, you keep forgetting important things that you should do, and your schedule is so packed that you barely have time to catch your breath. If this sounds like your life right now, then it’s time to do something about it. Otherwise, you’ll continue living like you’re running on a hamster wheel. You may think you’re doing so much already, but you’re not getting anywhere.
Being a well-organized person is not just about your ability to get things done, but also about your capacity to set aside time and energy for other aspects of your life, like family, friends, hobbies, faith, or spirituality. These areas of our existence are also vital in ensuring that we live a meaningful life, and not spend our days grinding it out at work.
If you want to have more time for yourself and the things you love...
You’ve already imagined it; today is going to be a productive day. You’ll finally finish your tasks and get it all over with. As you turn your computer on, you look at your to-do list and see everything you have to get done neatly spread before you. You feel optimistic because it’s only nine in the morning, and you have the whole day ahead. But you start receiving emails that seem urgent, so you tell yourself that you’ll reply to the emails first and then get on with the tasks.
Just when you’re about to finish, your colleague comments on the latest news, so you get curious and Google it. You spend the next ten minutes browsing through different news websites and get sucked into the world of celebrity gossip. The next thing you know, your coworkers are inviting you to join them for lunch. The whole morning has passed without you being able to do anything productive.
Does this scenario sound familiar to you? It could be television, social...
What could be causing all your problems? While it may be easy to say that it’s just pure bad luck, the truth is that people deal with so many issues because they have allowed their fears to control them.
While it may not always be evident how debt, procrastination, and relationship problems are related to fear, somehow, it seems every problem is rooted in dealing with it.
Teach yourself how to overcome fear in life, and you will have a fuller existence. But where do you begin? How do you start telling yourself to go on and do what makes you happy?
Fear is everywhere, but your source of comfort could come from anywhere too. When you teach yourself to be fearless, you open yourself up to more opportunities for growth and learning. In the long run, you will benefit from overcoming those fears and teaching yourself to be more open.
Your fear has prevented you from doing the things that make your soul soar. To begin dealing with...
Quitting is a word often associated with negativity and failure. In fact, it is one of the things you were taught not to do when you were young. Your parents told you never to quit on something you started working on. Finish what you started and try your best to do a great job.
But there is another kind of quitting that actually helps. It is the kind that leads you in the right direction. When you find yourself drowning in addiction to drugs, alcohol, or gambling, the best decision to take on is to quit.
Quitting at this time is the first brave step to take when you want to get over an addiction. Teaching yourself how to quit drugs is easier said than done. It takes a lot of courage, self-discipline, and hard work to fully realize that quitting drugs and alcohol should have been your priority from the beginning.
Whatever you may be addicted to–drugs, alcohol, smoking, or gambling–all of them are dangerous for you. In truth,...
Are you trying to find the motivation to clean your house? Or perhaps you wish you had the will to get up and start working on your weight loss plans. While it may not seem a big deal, the lack of motivation for these personal projects could prevent you from reaching your goals.
Getting to the bottom of how to overcome self-doubt should be the first step to increasing your motivation. Whether you have difficulty finishing a task or starting one, you have to understand why you are struggling. You need to work on developing a plan to help motivate yourself to keep going.
And yet, you have to consider that not all strategies could work for everyone. You have to develop a confidence mantra that could work for you and your situation.
Sometimes, the lack of confidence to do something is the problem in itself. There are other times when this lack of confidence is only a symptom of a much bigger problem.
Do you find yourself with an overwhelming number of tasks to do each day? Does it feel like you are very far from the peaceful life you have always wished for yourself? When it comes to a point where you seem to be swallowed by the noisy life you live with every day, the yearning for a calm and quiet life only gets stronger.
In solitude and monotony, people are able to find themselves and access their much-needed creativity. However, it is so easy to get distracted when the world around you is full of noise and chaos. The endless list of things that the world demands from you can pull your focus in different directions.
How do you turn the other way and get your life back to simplicity? How do you teach yourself to lean back to that quiet life?
In this day and age, when everyone is trying their best to cope up with their busy schedule, the thought of retiring to a quiet life always serves as an inspiration. It pushes...
