If you lived through either of these times you can probably recall how freaked out people were during these outbreaks. Many Canadians over-reacted to situations that turned out to be not nearly as bad as they’d thought.
With the latest…Continue
What is it that compels a man to
Commit sin, even involuntarily,
As if driven by force, O Varshneya?”
The Blessed Lord said:
It is desire; it is anger, born of
Rajo-guna, all-consuming and most evil.
Know this to be the enemy here on earth."
Bhagavad Gita, Ch.3, v. 36,37 (transl. by Maharishi)
Anger is an enemy because it disturbs, confuses and destroys one’s mental equilibrium and causes one to commit sin,…Continue
A broken soulmate relationship can spiral a soul into crisis. It starts with the “Forever Fallacy.” Understanding life is impermanent frees us from attachments that relationships, even good ones are not meant to last forever. A soul journey is a sole journey and it’s best not to hold onto too many expectations to those we consider soulmates. The ties of human connection mean we are all soulmates, everything we do touches another.
A woman on social media wrote about…Continue

When you get up in the morning and you open the blinds to look out for the first fresh time that day to your front lawn or your backyard, can you see the peace that makes up the natural world? Can you see that the sky and its holdings are just hanging there peacefully? Can you see that the trees in your neighborhood represent so fully the silence and the presence of stillness? And while you are looking at the peace in the natural world, can you hear the gentle movement of the wind, or the…Continue

Cheerleader, not the lead player, is our ego’s assigned and healthy function:
Our ego by default feeds on fear since its primary goal is to ensure our survival in various situations. The inherent nature of fear and its biological function is to prompt us to act in situations when there is a need to fight…Continue
On most days I find myself caught between two worlds, the human world of having to get things done, make money, have sex, clean the house, cook meals and make everyone happy. The other world has nothing to be done rather there is a yearning to know, know everything about who we are and why we are here.
No big task and absolutely no pressure in either…Continue
What does it mean to create from the soul and how we do it? First, we need to silence exterior and inner criticism, and then get our conscious ego out of the way.

Birth and Death a Continuing…Continue
