Are you suffering from a miserable marriage, or do you often ask yourself, “Should I stay in my relationship?” Being with another person is not going to be great all the time. There are pros and cons to each relationship that we should all consider before committing to a person. If we don’t think things through thoroughly, we may find ourselves in a situation where it’s too good to leave and too bad to stay.
It’s not just in relationships that we encounter this problem with commitment. There are times when we just do our work for the sake of finishing our tasks. How often have we done something quickly so that we can get it over with? It no longer matters to us whether the job was done to the best of our abilities or not. We want it off our to-do list, so we haphazardly finish it.
Another typical example is our commitment to dieting and working out. It often starts at the beginning of the year as a New Year’s resolution. But after...
Whether you are running your own business or pushing to move your career forward, the stress can be difficult to deal with on top of everything else at home and in your personal life. While it is normal to find yourself in various stressful situations, sometimes it can get to you.
Between managing the day to day obligations you have at home and bearing the responsibility of making your career successful, it’s no surprise that you’re overwhelmed. There is just so much that depends on you.
Everyone and everything seems to demand your time and attention. You likely wear several hats. This constant pull can drain your energy. Ultimately, this anxiety can leave a significant impact on your overall well being, particularly your emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the quality of life that you live.
When you have too much on your plate, and things become overwhelming, some things may start to slip, and your hard...
The importance of discipline in life could not be any more emphasized. It is one of the most useful skills that a person can possess. Self-discipline is an essential aspect of life. Although many people recognize the importance of self-discipline, very few people really work hard for it.
Contrary to popular belief, self-discipline is not about being hard on yourself. It is also not about limiting yourself to what you can and cannot do. A restrictive lifestyle does not define self-discipline.
Instead, it is about using common sense. It is about teaching yourself the right set of priorities. The practice of self-discipline is about thinking before acting.
Discipline is the key to success. With self-discipline, you can achieve your goals because it is the driving force that will push you to pursue your dreams and not stop until you have accomplished them.
If you are disciplined, you have the...
It is believed that the place in the body that houses our thoughts is located in one specific place. But is it just in the brain? Anyone who has taken a philosophy class may wonder if it's just the brain that makes people think their thoughts. Perhaps it is our souls that directs us how and what to think and feel.
Are our thoughts just a product of natural human anatomy? Is human biology responsible for the ideas in our head and the emotions in our hearts? A lot of things are thought about whenever people engage in philosophy.
Have you ever thought about how to become a philosopher? Perhaps it has never crossed your mind, although you wonder how these people came to be. While some people think that philosophers only question things in life and their existence, the only question left to ask in return is, why aren't you?
It is reasonably common to dismiss that philosophers only want to question the things that do not fit their...
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...
Every human, whether it is in an organization or a family, needs to be heard. When they are heard, it allows the other person to understand things from a different perspective. Who doesn't want to be heard by the people we care about?
Having someone who will listen to your needs and act accordingly is one of the best gifts you will have in this lifetime. The importance of listening cannot be overstated. The same is true when you listen to others. You are giving them a boost of confidence, making them feel that they are special.
Why is listening important? Active listening is essential in building your future as a leader. When you realize how important it is to listen, you will learn how you can be a better leader for the future. After all, all great leaders listen.
Active listening refers to listening with the full intent to understand the other person wants to convey. You can do this by allowing the other person...
Was there ever a time you regret doing something because it sabotaged your bigger plan? You knew that it would end up like that, but you pushed through with it anyway, hoping for better things to come.
The mind has the power to control your life, including your actions and the decisions you make. It is what pushed you to give the power to your partner. It is also the same mind that made you make a negative remark in front of your boss.
You want to make things right, but you always do things that you know are bad for your relationships and your career. Sometimes, it may feel like something is holding you back, but you can’t be too sure of it. Indeed, the mind has its ways of letting you know what you can and cannot do.
All the answers to the questions you have about yourself are kept in the subconscious part of your brain. The ideas are locked away from the conscious mind, and that’s why you have this...
What does the phrase "higher self" mean? Do you believe that a part of you resides in the ether or the non-physical realm? Whatever you think about your spirit says a lot about how you view life.
Your divine connection is the spark of life and spirit that is inside you. It is the part of you that remains indescribable, but it is there. It helps you keep track of what your purpose is in life. Your divine self is also the one responsible for driving your passions.
Is your higher self the same as your soul? Yes, it is. It is a window that gives you access to wisdom that has been amassed over the several lifetimes you have lived. It is where the past, present, and future learnings are collected to serve as your guide in living a fruitful life.
Your higher self serves as your divine connection. It is the background consciousness that offers you the wisdom and directions to lead you to where you should be in this lifetime. Your divine...

Every single human being has asked the question at least once in their lives, "What is my purpose?" In my experience, the answer that people or religions have given me is less than comforting, to say the least. When I started my inner work path, the answer became obvious to me, and what had seemed like religious riddles also started to become more apparent. For example, in Buddhism, the Buddha says the mind is everything we think we become, pointing to the mind as the creator of reality for the material plane. So in more relative terms, our thoughts are projections, and those projections are what we see, think, and feel. This means we ultimately have control of how we want to see the world around us. This concept is also strongly used in Zen.
Jesus said in the Bible, "If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you." If you are not doing the required inner work, then this message might not find you....

As we strive to live our soul's true purpose, we turn to the stars and the ethereal to find answers to the most abstract and challenging human existence inquiries. We spend a lot of time wondering and pondering solutions that we can occasionally find a lot closer to home than we think. As we seek to perfect our selves, one thing is essential to note: A clear mind needs a strong body. However, the word strong can mean many different things. The instinctual assumption would be that of an exuberant muscular body glistening in the sunlight. Yet, real strength is no mere aesthetic. A healthy body is durable and suitable for the needs of the soul that drives it around daily. Since different souls have different needs, then a strong body is relative to their usage. With the increased awareness of body image issues, several debates are challenging what it means to have a healthy body and a healthy relationship with it. Without...
