The Feed is in the Thought
An elderly Cherokee chief was imparting wisdom on his grandson about love; ‘Something is going on inside of me,’ he said to the boy. It is a terrible fight, and it is between two wolves… Art by Daniel Danger One is fearful - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego. The other is good...
The Inspired Artwork of Cate Parr
Simply stunning. I love when art evokes not only wonder for the art itself, but wonder for the souls who inhabit the paintings. It’s like you see yourself in the faces; and you feel strangely honoured to be able to view such incredible work. Merci et bonne nuit, les enfants de l’esprit…

The Dalai Lama Was Asked What Surprised Him About...
And the Dalai Lama said: “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” Image via Flickr - Stuck in...

Observing Your Mind - The Power of Thoughts
I recently took my first course with Brahma Kumaris, an international spiritual organization, and learned many an important lesson. Focused on Raja Yoga (a form of meditation), we first learned about the nature of our thoughts. To practice observing your thoughts, even just for an hour, is a powerful thing. You’ll find that they range from great ones, to not so great ones, and we were given...

What does a spiritual journey even mean?
That’s a question I asked myself a lot about a year and a half ago. I was starting to ‘wake up’; I was beginning to figure out that there was something about the world that I had never been taught, and I wanted to find out what it was. I had just discovered meditation, and the idea of a clutter-free mind. But apart from that, I was lost. I felt called to continue a journey that...

Native American Code of Ethics - A Sample
Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often. The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak. Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path. Ignorance, conceit, anger, jealousy and greed stem from a lost soul. Pray that they will find guidance. Search for yourself, by yourself. Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with...
“Since time began on this planet, there have never been two snowflakes...– Louise Hay
One day Deepak Chopra met a businessman who seemed a little unsure of the spiritual movement growing around him. He asked, in quite a frustrated manner, “What is consciousness?” Fair question, the word is everywhere. Chopra didn’t intend to reply, but found he was compelled to say: “Consciousness is the potential for all creation.” It was like a light bulb went off...
Veggie Tuna Melt
Ok, so it’s not quite a tuna melt. But I was craving a dish that satisfied my hunger, my love of everything delicious, and my need for protein. Hmmmmm, bean chilli you say? A great go to, granted, but I’m looking for something that can be made in 10 minutes or less. Hmmmmm, again. I glanced at what I had: organic cheese, garlic hummus, raisin bread, tomatoes, arugula, eggs. Not...
