80-Year Study Shows Happiness Is The Driving Force In Our Health

By Karen Foster

How people describe both positive and negative events in their lives influences their perception of their own life. When scientists began tracking the health of 268 Harvard sophomores in 1938 during the Great Depression, they hoped the longitudinal study would reveal clues to leading healthy and happy lives. They got more than they wanted.

After following the surviving Crimson men for nearly 80 years as part of the Harvard Study of Adult Development, one of the world’s longest studies of adult life, researchers have collected a cornucopia of data on their physical and mental health.

How The Microbiome Destroyed the Ego, Vaccine Policy, and Patriarchy

Written By: =&0=&

The relatively recent discovery of the microbiome is not only completely redefining what it means to be human, to have a body, to live on this earth, but is overturning belief systems and institutions that have enjoyed global penetrance for centuries.

A paradigm shift has occurred, so immense in implication, that the entire frame of reference for our species’ self-definition, as well as how we relate fundamentally to concepts like “germs,” have been transformed beyond recognition. This shift is underway and yet, despite popular interest in our gut ecology, the true implications remain unacknowledged.

Why it is Imperative to Create Conscious Partnerships with Nature

It is becoming increasingly important for humans to understand the extensive partnership they have with nature, especially when focusing on issues of form and consciousness and all that this combination implies. We are in an interesting time in human development where the desires and needs of the human soul on Earth completely outstrip the ability of the present support frameworks. By this we mean support frameworks in all areas: agriculture, science, physical health, mental and emotional health, government, social, education…

12 WAYS YOU ARE UNCONSCIOUSLY LOWERING YOUR OWN VIBRATION

“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.”- Eckhart Tolle

12. Regrets

Whether it’s a missed opportunity, a bad relationship, a choice we should have made or simply something that made us feel dumb, dwelling in regret consumes a large amount of our time and energy. It has been thought, that the reason we regret so many things is because we have an idealized version of ourselves that we wish to live up to at all times.

To put it into perspective, we all think that we are 100% good people and when we do things that don’t reflect the most positive aspects of ourselves, we deem that we’ve fallen short in some way. But, when we can let go of these ideals and embrace the gravity and reality of life, we then free ourselves from the illusion of “perfection”.

THE NEW EARTH: THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT WE ARE LIVING IN TRANSFORMATIONAL TIMES

There is no doubt that WE are living in transformational times. The world is shifting out of the old paradigm ruled by fear into a new New Earth of peace and harmony with universal law. For decades the Earth plane has been in the process of returning to alignment with the natural harmonic of the universe, and from now WE will be experiencing an increase in the amount of golden Light being dispensed to Earth from the great central sun. This golden Light activates the Light codes that are needed to manifest the New Earth. New Earth is ONE of peace, balance harmony and the expression of divine LOVE. In the new age of peace we will no longer be ruled by clocks in the ‘time is money’ paradigm, instead WE will be guided by synchronicity.

Understanding energy leaks; or, Seven Ways to keep your Mojo

In the yoga tradition we encounter a fascinating metaphor: it is said that the milk of a lioness is so potent that no container can hold it except for pure gold. If the golden vessel has impurities, the milk will eat through the vessel like acid at those points, and drain away. In the same way, if the practitioner has too many ‘energy leaks’ then the spiritual energy (shakti) that is generated through yogic practice will simply leak away again.

Have you ever been to a yoga retreat or meditation weekend that was so inspiring and empowering that you felt sure your life was going to change radically, only to find within days or weeks of returning home that all that extra juice had seeped away, returning you to much the same default state you had before the retreat? If so, you’re not alone. This is a very common experience. Because energy leaks.

6 Ways A Spiritually Enlightened Person View Death

By Farida Rizwan; topyaps

Death is a destination shared by all living things. People view death with fear, as means of escape from worldly suffering, or a natural process of replacing the old with new, based on their own way of thinking. Different religions and cultures view spiritual enlightenment in different lights, but the basic meaning remains that being enlightened is having full comprehension of our purpose of life which ends with death.

According to the author of ‘On Death and Dying’ Elizabeth Kubler Ross, death is nothing but a peaceful cessation of the functioning of the body. A spiritually enlightened person does not fear death but views in different ways based on philosophy of his/her life.
