In Natalie Goldberg’s book, Writing Down the Bones, she has a chapter called “Doubt Is Torture” in which she talks about a conversation between her friend and their Zen teacher, Katagiri Roshi:

A friend of mine was planning to move to Los Angeles with the hope of connecting with the music industry. He was a musician and songwriter, and it was time for him to follow his aspirations. Katagiri Roshi said to him, “Well, if you’ve decided to go, let’s see what your…

In his book, What They Don’t Teach You In The Harvard Business School, Mark McCormack mentions some interesting statistics about setting and achieving goals. In 1979, a poll was conducted of new graduates from Harvard’s MBA Program and found that:

  • 84% had no specific goals at all
  • 13% had goals but they were not committed to paper

Kriya Yoga: Slowing the Hammer of 1 Billion Heartbeats

Scientists have discovered that the arc of a modern human life can be measured like that of a hummingbird – by the tapping hammer of 1 billion heartbeats. Though at 1200 beats per minute a hummingbird’s heart reaches the 1 billion mark in a hurry, we humans have the capacity to slow down the hammer, and in doing so, extend life's experience in real time.

Kriya Yoga is one of the ways we have to slow the hammer. If you’ve never heard of Kriya Yoga, don’t be surprised. No, it’s not a…

3 Things You Can Do Today To Increase Your Happiness

Did you know that there’s a growing field of science known as “Positive Psychology”? Dr. Martin Seligman, author of Authentic Happiness and Learned Optimism, put this area of psychology on the map during the late 1990s when he served as president of the American Psychological Association, but it has its roots in the work of Dr. Abraham Maslow and other well-known social scientists from the 20th century.

Work As A Spiritual Practice

Creativity and How to Stay In the Zone

Many people think that if you’re a creative person, it must mean that you’re an artist, a writer, a musician, or something along those lines. But actually, the definition of creativity is very broad. Even everyday activities like setting up a filing system, preparing a meal, and writing computer code fit the definition.

According to Merriam Webster, it’s “the ability to make new things or think of new ideas.” So, since you have opposable thumbs, reasoning ability and can…

3 Important Principles for Success

Have you ever noticed that success isn't really based on environment, upbringing, education, being from a certain neighborhood, etc.? Even those from the most humble beginnings can rise above their circumstances. History proves this over and over.

Though some successful people might simply attribute their accomplishments to luck when asked how they’ve done what they’ve done, that’s not all there is to it. In fact, some of us would even say that there’s no such thing as luck at all.…

Your Thoughts Make You What You Are

Access Your Inner Whispers

Sitting down and writing the answers to questions in longhand sparks the internal flame of intuition, creativity and problem solving.

To Be An Emissary of Compassion

We live in a dynamic place of complimentary opposites – positive/negative, male/female, light/dark. When we are born into this plane of complimentary opposites, the unconditional becomes conditional. However, somehow we are still able to grasp the concept of being unconditional even as we are being conditional about love. Just as we are able to grasp the concept of being one, while we are being more than one. We don’t see it logically with our mind, but we know it is true at some other level…

Psychological Time, The Reconnection Point & The Divine

Did you know that there is never a time when you are separated from the Divine essence that runs through your life – not even for a nanosecond?
