Drop the Mask and Be Who You Are

By Jacqueline, Body Mind Soul Spirit

That title is easy to write but can be incredibly difficult to do. From a young age, we are encouraged to wear a variety of masks and labels so much so that the #1 regret of the dying is: “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”

And that’s exactly what it takes–courage. 3 years ago, I wrote a post called Be You, and it in I said, “the most courageous act you will ever commit is to simply be yourself.”

What I didn’t know at the time, is that throughout life you will continuously have an opportunity to keep or drop the masks and labels you carry. Different masks show up at various stages of your life. Some of them might be preprograming about who or what you need to be in your career, relationship, or as a parent.

By Alexa Erickson, Collective Evolution

You may have heard of numerology before and perhaps you didn’t give it much credit or brushed it off as some new age mumbo jumbo, but what if you could test it out for yourself and see what it can actually represent? If you found it to be accurate in being able to describe details in your life would you accept that there’s actually some truth to it or brush it off as mere coincidence?

Zen LessonsBy Steve Beckow, Golden Age of Gaia

I’m sorting out my books after unpacking – I have no Internet yet  –  (1)  when my eyes fell on Zen Lessons: The Art of Leadership. In it I read Master Yuantong’s description of a noble man:

“This man is true to the middle way, not biased or dependent. Whether active or at rest, he is noble and dignified. Furthermore, in his study of the Way [the Tao] his actions are correct, and his words are simple yet logically complete. Whenever people have endowments like this, seldom do they fail to become vessels of enlightenment.” (2)

What difference does it make to say it this way in the Tenth Century or to say it the way we do today? Continue reading Us and the Ancients

The Microcosmic Orbit – Taoist Secret of Higher Consciousness

By Dylan Charles, Waking Times

The human body is endowed with spiritual anatomy, using energy to support life and consciousness. As a microcosm of the universe, the energetic circulatory system of the body mirrors the patterns we find in the cosmos, flowing in orbital patterns along channels often referred to as meridians.

As planets move in orbit around stars, so too electrons orbit the nuclei of atoms, creating bio-electricity, forming the matter which makes up our bodies. We are electric beings, and when our circuitry is operating efficiently, our personal energy, health and wellness increase exponentially.

Organic Farming Could Save Thousands of U.S. Farms Now Suffocating from Debt

By Christina Sarich, The Mind Unleashed

The U.S. Department of Agriculture just released its biannual report on farm incomes, and it looks bleak. Farmers are drowning in debt, and it’s being blamed on a poor dollar and dropping grain prices, but let’s look at some additional factors which may be bankrupting the farmers of the U.S., and some easy ways to save them.

-U.S. farms grow tons of government-subsidized GMO corn to be used for ethanol. This practice is killing our soil, and bankrupting farmers. It is also totally unnecessary since we shouldn’t be relying on oil for energy anymore. Costa Rica, Iceland, and Bonaire are three countries that are already running 100% on green energy. Let farmers grow hemp instead. Continue reading Organic Farming Could Save Thousands of U.S. Farms Now Suffocating from Debt

The Non-Conformity Guide: How to Stop Following the Herd, Create Your Own Path, and Reclaim Your Life

By Sofo Archon, Wake Up World

“No shepherd, and one herd! Everyone wants the same, everyone is the same: whoever feels different goes willingly into the madhouse.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Everyone is unique, without exception. Sadly, most of us don’t realize this fact – we don’t accept ourselves for who we are and wish we were different. Naturally, this is causing enormous sadness and discomfort to us, because, how can we be happy and at ease, unless we accept and love ourselves?
