When things change inside you, things change around you.” — Unknown

I wonder how often do you catch yourself imploring in front of your mind for a moment of peace? I’m talking about those desperate internal cries — oh please, for one times sake, give me just five minutes of quiet, then you can go on!

Mindfucks caused by our expectations, jealousy, anger, stress, despair, and what-not, are like a never-ending game that our mind projects…

What is the first thing that pops up in your mind when you hear the word relaxation?

Are you drinking a cocktail on an exotic beach? Or are you turning bottles partying with your friends? Or is it even something just as simple as reading a book or watching a movie on a weekend night?

Whatever it is, let me tell you one thing to be sure of — your body, mind, and soul are not going to get the relaxation they require. Here’s why.

When the body and the mind are constantly overworked, their capacity for efficiency depletes. Modern…

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Newton’s Third Law

The law of karma is one of the most universal laws in Hindu philosophy. The word karma means action. The law teaches us that for every action, there is an underlying opposite reaction.

This law, regarded as a universal chain of cause and effect, operates on many levels. Some might say that this is convenient fiction, but truthful insights are so deep that it’s impossible to disregard them.

Accumulation of Karma

The law of karma governs the evolution of the soul, and it’s accumulated on three levels.

WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY

My love for animals and nature is deeply rooted in my life since childhood. So one day, when I found myself in the middle of the jungle, hiding between bushes and trying to capture the wild ones, there was not even a drop of surprise in my mind.

If you have had the benefit of having a pet in your childhood or adolescence, you might as well relate to this feeling. Animals teach us to love and be loyal, and they help us experience compassion and develop trust in relationships with others.

Connecting with nature is one of the most…

“The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.”

— Hippocrates

As humans, we are invariably dealing with conflicts.

Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, it is impossible to avoid a conflict with the outer world. So, we solely try to resolve it, hoping for the best outcome.

Yet, there are those other times when the conflict does not arise from the outer world, but it grows within our minds and thoughts. …

One day I call my mother and shock her with the following statement:

I am allergic to plastic!

Wait, what?! How come?! What happened?! — she shoots questions like piercing bullets.

Well, — I continue — Every time I have to touch something from or in plastic — a robust chest tightness begins, and it supervenes with heart palpations, sweating, and nausea. My whole body gets internally on fire. There is this feeling of anxiety. My hands start shaking, and I’m turning sick at it. …


Personal Development

Three and a half years ago, my boyfriend and I embarked on a world trip. Nothing was planned, except our big dreams to travel the world.

Our story goes up like this:

He called me one day inviting me to meet up in Paris. We were apart for a while, but when I heard his voice there were no second thoughts. I bought my ticket train from Amsterdam to Paris in a heartbeat and ran out to catch up on the last train.

When we met, everything was sweet as candy topper fireworks, and luckily, it continues to get even…
