Charlie: “Take it easy. Chill out. Relax. Cool down. Don’t stress out. Lighten up. You’re making a mountain out of a molehill. It’s not a big deal.” These are things that I used to say back in the day when I didn’t want to hear Linda’s complaints when I failed to keep my word regarding something that I had told her that I was going…Continue

Linda: Some couples get caught in a highly conflictual style of communication where fighting is commonplace. Because trust is so low at that time, each of the pair is caught up in fears of being dominated by the other. Being on alert to prevent domination from occurring causes them to be guarded, battle-ready and aggressive. They…Continue

In the previous article at Omtimes by this same writer, titled, The Advaita Vedanta, Science and the Theory of Evolution, it was shown that the science of evolution originated by Charles Darwin around the mid-nineteenth century CE is a perfect tool for explaining some of the complex concepts of the Advaita Vedanta originated by Adi Shankaracharya in the eighth century CE.

The Black Lives Matter protests are continuing into their second week with no signs of abating. And that’s a good thing. It reminds me of the #Time’sUp and #MeToo movement, when things reached a tipping point and there was no turning back.

The same has happened since the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer.
As a white…Continue

Essentially written in one day in March 2013, « One Of A Kind » is an upbeat folk pop summer song about meeting someone who turns out to have special significance in one's life, and eventually becoming so close as to form a kind of unit with them.
Ultimately, it's also about how every encounter, whether apparently desirable or otherwise, actually contributes to one's growth and to finding one's place in the grand scheme of things.

One common trait all empaths share is continually feeling zapped and drained. When this happens the gut reaction is to crawl inside and shut out the world. Or emotionally eat a bunch of food midday to feel grounded and protected. But what if there was a better way to release all the excess “stuff?”
Being an empath means intuitively connecting to others through emotion. Empaths don’t just observe other people. They feel them as through they were going through…Continue
We are almost halfway through the year 2020, termed by many as, “The Great Shift.” Many of us knew it was coming, but we just didn’t know what it would look like.
