Here’s what I mean when I say Listening Is The Key.

 

All of the ailments of our society are based in fear.

 

All of our fears are THINKING we are separate(d):

 

a) We think we are separate from ourselves, meaning, we think external forces are in charge of our attention, our time, our money, our diet, our disease.

 

b) We think we are separate from others, meaning, we think we have no power to mend marriage, to develop companies that allow everyone in them ...

Contentment

 

One of the commentaries onPatanjali’s Yoga Sutras says,

“It is said in the sacred texts that just as to escape from thorns it is necessary only to wear shoes and not to cover the face of the earth with leather, so happiness can be derived from contentment and not from thinking, ‘I shall be happy when I get all I wish for.’ ” (Swami Hariharananda Aranya, Yoga Philosopy of Patanjali, 1983.)

You up your productivity many times over when you restore wholeness and completion.
Remember how when you organize the clutter on your desk, or clean out your garage, all of a sudden new ideas come to you, people you’ve been trying to reach finally call back, and you feel like you’ve got a new take on life somehow.

The reason things are able to flow again is because you patched up a hole ...

Life wants you to realize your intentions!

Posted by:

Trust that your truest desires are one with the universe.
In our profoundly hidden fear that we are separate (in body, mind and spirit), we think we’ve got to work against what-is to get what we want. Given that you are a piece of it, how could the universe be whole and complete if you are not happy? Given that you are a piece of the whole, how could what-is not be the perfect place for you to ...

Four Unmistakable Signs of a Master and Leader:  from receptionist to CEO

First, as master you monitor your relationship to yourself and the world around you, adjust and generate yourself anew in each moment, disappearing any separation between the happy, powerful “you” working within the confines of your own private space, and the outside world that exists oblivious to the ways you’ve learned for getting by in the world.

Life has become T.M.I.

We live in an age of too much:  too many things, too much communication, too much to do, too much to think about, too many options…

We’re overwhelmed, whether we’re working or retire, and we’re getting exhausted and resigned.  We think back fondly on simpler days, stress-free productivity, easeful conversations, streamlined systems, and a straight-forward connection between action and result.

Yes, all the gadgets and ways of getting in touch and nuanced opportunities are meant to provide more benefits ...

The Normative Sciences

The Normative Sciences

The normative sciences are inquiries into the values in terms of which we live.  These sciences ask what the norms are with regard to three irreducible aspects of the phenomena we experience, and then makes judgments (of goodness, truth and beauty) accordingly.

Ethics

Ethics is based on pure possibility.  Ethics studies timeless ways of being, including their value in terms of lawfulness or goodness, including their not-goodness.  Ethics is first and of foremost importance among the normative sciences.  It is ...
