Amusement, Fear, and Consciousness
I've been telling groups that as Consciousness we're amused by Donald Trump and I'm afraid I'm going to get stoned by an angry mob afterwards. I totally get it.

Peace of Mind, the Danish Way
Who would think that the Dane's have a secret that we can all cherish? The Dane's seem to be the happiest people in the world. So, what is their secret? In North America, we seem to be pushed to the brink. We rush, overwork, don't sleep well, overstress, and are miserable. We overwork so that we can over-purchase and over-consume. The result is that we are unhappy, unhealthy and we are dying younger than ever before. So, what we need to do is to step back from the so-called rat-race where the only person who seems to be the happiest is the one who has somehow stopped all of this nonsense and actually stopped to smell the roses at least once a day. But we usually categorize such people as lazy or something else that is nonetheless negative in nature.

Rarely do families sit down and have dinner together without the television being on, people beeping them via text, and other distractions. In this article I show you how to create a home the Danish way that will make you happier and more at peace.

Quest for Happiness in This Material World
The article provides an insight on how we can find happiness in this material world. The aspects covered are what is happiness, where can we find happiness, how can we be happy, understanding the true purpose of our life, people are really happy or they pretend to be happy, nowadays. Our life is full of complexities and distractions. To keep ourselves inspired, we need to find a state of mind where we are at the position of giving our best.

The Great Kindness Challenge: What's Yours?
Driving down Pacific Coast Highway the other day, I was surprised to see that the large light-board sign plunked in the median strip near a major cross-street read, "Don't text and drive."

5 Ways To Balance Life & Social Media
Millions of people use social media on a daily basis. There are a lot of advantages to social media. Social media can platform your business, help you to keep up with friends and family and even give support during challenging times. But with those advantages, come disadvantages.

Practise Equanimity
Equanimity is a wonderful quality, a spaciousness and balance of heart. And it can be yours with a bit of practise and patience. The skill of equanimity depends upon the ability to detach from emotions and thoughts. One place to start is with the belief that negative emotional states are to some degree inevitable. Depression, anxiety, fear, jealousy, hatred, anger, and other painful emotions are natural and human so you can expect them sooner or later. By accepting this fact and understanding the nature of emotions, you will continue to change your relationship to your emotions. You will not be able to eliminate negative emotions, painful memories or harmful thoughts but you can change your relationship to them. I will show you how to do this in this article.

Are You A Happy Person, What Do You Say?
It is the right of every person to live a happy life but most people are not aware how to.

Bluebirds Bring Hope
Prior to meeting and marrying Kathleen, the decade before had been a most challenging period for her. It was one of those tough stretches many of us face over the course of our lives. Kathleen had been suddenly "downsized", went through an unwanted divorce, had cancer surgery, her mother had a heart attack and was raising two young teenagers (and sheep) in a big old house out in the country. The emotional roller coaster of life was pulling her down. One day driving home after a job interview, Kathleen pulled into her driveway and there in the burning bush, was a flock of over two dozen, eastern bluebirds. She stopped the car, stared at the birds, and cried while her spirits regained a place of strength. Bluebirds have, and will always be a 'sign of hope' for Kathleen. This time they told her it to keep going, and just do the next right thing. Good times were ahead.

Your Miracle of Love, Happiness, and Comfort
All the craziness in the world boils down to the desire of the heart which, if you dig down deep, is tied to the search for love, happiness and comfort - both here on earth and in the hoped-for life after death, when decayed bones rise to unite with revived rotten flesh.
