The Ultimate Way to Cure Anxiety: Why are We All Addicted to Something?

By Markab Algedi, The Mind Unleashed

Why are we all addicted to something? Why do human beings in our culture have this nagging, constant insatiability? What are we searching for, why do we feel like we are lacking, and why do we seem to be constantly trying to cure ourselves of restlessness, boredom, or anxiety?

I don’t know the answer to that question one hundred percent, but I have some theories currently, with the level I am at in understanding this issue myself. This question is the type that you ask yourself over the course of your entire life: the answer is ever-changing, growing as a person personally learns how to be happy in life without seeking so many external things.

Fossil Fuel Lobbyist by Day, Washington Post Columnist by Night

via Anti-Media

Ed Rogers continues to embarrass the Washington Post.

(FAIR) — What is the point of Ed Rogers, the Washington Post’s most conflict-ridden, mediocre columnist (FAIR.org4/23/15)? He doesn’t add a lot to the discourse, his boilerplate Republican talking points could be better written by any number of Heritage fellows, he shills for Trump in the most boring ways possible, and—most glaringly of all—is an actual paid lobbyist for an assortment of sleazy industry interests, via his lobbying firm BGR Group.

45+ Unbelievable Photos Reveal The Damage Irma Has Already Caused

By Amanda Froelich, The Mind Unleashed

Did you know? Hurricane Irma, which recently tore into the Caribbean and is heading towards Florida, is one of the most powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricanes on record. Though the hurricane has downgraded to a Category 4 from a Category 5, its wind speed remains about 150 mph.

Compared to Hurricane Harvey which “parked” in one place, Irma is “a whirling dervish” that has great potential to wreak havoc on Florida and Cuba over the weekend. Reportedly, Irma destroyed “95 percent” of Saint Martin, Barbuda, and the British Virgin Islands. Millions of people are now left without access to water, electricity or phone service. And, at least 10 are dead. Continue reading 45+ Unbelievable Photos Reveal The Damage Irma Has Already Caused

Thank You For Supporting the Blog

Thank you to everyone who donated and helped us at a time when we really needed it. Because of you, we can make end’s meet and keep the blog running.

I look forward to continuing to share (what I hope to be) insightful writings on society and the evolution of mind, body, and soul. Your support ensures I can do so and still pay the bills; a feat that’s not always easy to achieve.

Look out for more writings from me on the Openhearted Rebel blog, as I’ve committed to a more rigorous writing and posting schedule. I intend to post an article of my own every day, if not nearly every day, from here on out. Again, your support helps me survive while I do this.

I can’t thank all of you enough, and I intend to pay it back with articles I hope you’ll enjoy and learn something from.

In love and gratitude,

Wes Annac & Family

Bob Marley Quote: We Think High

e93f3c_097715fd3a684561ade815e213a1812amv2via A Nice Time

“We don’t really think upon a low level. We think high. That means we can live and we can see things. We can stay from above and see things low. If you stay from below and look above, you have want. If you stay from above and look ‘pon them below, then you can’t want. Because you have to bend down too low to pick up something.” – Bob Marley

The Creator Writings: The Big Bang?

And so, for some of you, the growing pains may have begun.  The challenges and upheavals of the emotional self are coming to the surface to be examined, thanked, honored and released.  This need not be a ‘big show’…..unless you want it to be!  (Smiling)  As you let go, the clarity you need most will be there waiting. ~ Creator
