The Awakened Heart

The heart has its reasons that reason knows not.  – Unknown. Awakening our heart and trusting our heart wisdom allows us to understand ourselves and our position in life more accurately. The heart speaks a different language, one the intellectual mind does not understand. But if we desire to, we can learn this language and receive the wisdom and joy that an awakened heart will bring. It is not difficult. Trusting our feelings and acting upon them puts us in communication with the heart. Often it is instinctive. Someone slips, your arm goes out. A car is in a ditch; you join the others and push. A colleague at work is depressed; you let him know you care. Already we are kind and loving in many ways, but this can deepen immeasurably. These are only the first few steps on the amazing path to the centre of your heart. […]

The Path of 10 Virtues (excerpt)

As we continue on the path of the ten virtues, I feel inclined to once again remind the reader that these are not spiritual or moral codes, but rather paths of energy that one explores by living and practicing them. They are of no value whatsoever as mere intellectual concepts. Their value can only be experienced by the individual who has the courage, curiosity and tenacity to live and practice them for a period of time—I suggest one month. If they have no value to you after practicing them for a month, then drop them and adopt practices that do have value for you. However, if you do find that they have immense value, as I have found they do, then incorporate them into your daily life as practices worthy of your time. […]

Money Secrets

There is a prosperity system that, when followed and practiced, invariably leads an individual to financial success. This system, which involves mastering both inner and outer skills, does not happen by chance or luck (unless you win the lottery) but by the application of very specific principles. Here are some of them: […]

The Placebo Effect

The placebo effect is one of the most fascinating aspects of health care. Traditional medicine, while very aware of the effect, does not know quite what to do about it. People on both sides of the issue argue passionately about its use. The advocates see it as a cure all. Its opponents call it a sham and an illusion. What both agree on, however, is that in many cases placebos work, and now new research is indicating that its success is far wider and more encompassing than ever suspected. […]

Be a Good Receiver

Are you a good receiver? It might sound like a funny question but it is an important one that each of us should ask ourselves. Strangely, most of us are better givers than we are receivers. We give to our children, our spouses, our friends, charities and, contrary to what we might think, most of us are actually very good at giving. But receiving; now that is another matter. We often feel subtly uncomfortable when receiving. Even compliments get deflected when they come our way. Someone pays us a compliment for helping them move or clean up the house and we say, “Ah, it was nothing.” Or someone compliments us on an outfit we are wearing and we feel inclined to mention how we bought it at a discount instead of simply enjoying the compliment and letting it nourish us. The compliment is a gift to us, and when we don’t receive it properly we are dishonoring the giver. […]

The Immune System

Anyone who looks seriously into the amazing healing processes of the body discovers a remarkable process – the immune system. Although we have learned more about the immune system in the past twenty years than in the entire history of medical science, we are still in our infancy of understanding the complexity of this system. […]

Authentic Relationships

A traveller nearing a great city asked an old man seated by the road, “What are the people like in this city?” “What were they like where you come from?” asked the old man. “Horrible,” the traveller responded in disgust. “Mean, untrustworthy, detestable in all respects.” “Ah…” said the old man thoughtfully, “you will probably find them the same in this city as well.” A few hours later another traveler passed by and asked the old man the same question. “What were they like where you come from?” he similarly asked. “They were fine people. Honest, industrious, generous, caring; I was sorry to leave,” the traveller responded. “You’ll find them the same here,” the old man replied. […]

Happiness & Joy

I believe absolutely that it is our duty and responsibility to cultivate the virtue of happiness and joy, and practice that virtue daily in our lives. Not only do we become empowered with this practice, but it also empowers everyone we come into contact with. And beyond this, the practice of happiness helps to change the vibration of our global consciousness. If it is even remotely possible for you, you should find something to be happy and joyful about today, even at this very moment. […]

Inner Harmony and Social Responsibility

The following is an excerpt from The Practice of Happiness, a book by John Kehoe. Inner harmony comes from recognizing that certain attitudes and feelings make us feel harmonious and others do not. It comes from noticing how we feel when we think in a certain way, from being aware of our own inner states and what has caused these inner states. Doing this is not hard, but it does take attention. First of all, let’s look at what causes disharmony within us. Anger, guilt, fear, worry, self-doubt, disrespect for yourself and others-these undesirable attitudes cause us untold problems and difficulties. We should always be on guard against slipping into these states of consciousness. For not only do these cause us harm, but in a very real way they affect the consciousness of the entire planet. […]

Fate and Destiny

Have you ever found yourself asking, “What is the meaning of life?” If so you are not alone. But this is not the right question we should be asking if we are looking for answers about our life. We are supposing that there is some general answer for all and that once understood gives us clarity about life. But each life is different, complex and each of us has a different fate and destiny so there can be no single answer that fits all.
