Quelling Your Mistaken Notions of Insignificance

  This is a guest post by Michael Nelson You can look up at the stars and immediately stumble upon some vague rationalization that you do not matter. It’s easier than you may think. All you need is just ponder on the immense vastness of space and our magnitude in the scale of things. Out in that space above your…

It’s a Problem-free Philosophy

  Yes I know, the title is a literal contradiction that slaps you right in the face. Philosophy is much about tackling questions to big problems than anything else. However if you have kids, or still nourishing the kid inside of you, then you might see beyond the apparent contradiction and reminisce the Walt Disney animation ‘The Lion King’specifically the…

Life Strategies: Embracing the lightness of being

I often get back & make reference to Ekhart Tolle’s works in my article. No doubt that his books, mainly “the Power of Now” and “A new Earth”, have been deeply influential as I’m sure they were with most people who have read them.

Why do they fascinate us so much yet we love to hate them and shrug them off as some eastern-mystical hogwash? Think of…

Increasing Your Positive Self-Awareness

When we’re self-aware, often it’s because we’re allowing negative thoughts to influence the way we perceive ourselves. For example, you’re self-aware when you’re at work and realize that you’ve left your cell phone on the kitchen table. But for most people, what results from that self-awareness is a string of negative self-talk that seems to come out of nowhere, berating…

What does your autobiography look like?

I was re-reading a passage from “A complete idiot’s guide to Zen living” by Gary McClain and Eve Adamson when I was struck anew by a very simple concept (don’t be misled by the title – it’s an excellent book for both newbies or otherwise and it’s a reference guide I regularly come back to). The idea was posed in…
