You Are Yin and Yang and Always Have Been
October 31, 2013 | Consciousness | M.Forrester
Yin and Yang are used to describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world; and, how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. They complement each other in many ways, but many existing dualities on our planet are becoming weaker and polarity consciousness is slowly leaving the Earth to a great extent. When we fully appreciate unity consciousness within a unified reality, we realize that these two interconnected forces are actually one. The dark plays a role and so does the light, but each is critical in the growth of the other. A being cannot truly appreciate being immersed in light until the dark is present and vice versa. A flower needs light to grow, but the dark to rest. What does this mean for our Earth? Read on.
All Truths Are True, Get Over It
October 18, 2013 | Consciousness | M.Forrester
It is often a painstaking process to attend to this subject without having to counter the millions of strong egos who simply refuse to accept such a simple concept. It is the struggle of the ages to move from a position of duality to one of acceptance that all truths are true, regardless of their perception, interpretation or validity to one or more persons. It's a challenge for most to take this on at face value because the query by human nature is "how can there not be one truth?" My response is always "how CAN there be just ONE truth?" Can you see through other people's eyes? Can you experience their emotions? Have you lived through their life experience? Can you see all perspectives? Of course not. So there cannot be any one truth for all people, and if you don't believe it, that's because you are experiencing your own perception of truth. See how it works?
15 Steps To Help You Be Grateful For Everything You Have In Your Life
October 17, 2013 | Consciousness | J.Richardson
Being grateful is both a state of mind and perspective. One person's idea of expressing gratitude may completely contradict another. Most of us are not born eternal optimists, but being positive and grateful is something that can be imbibed even if a tad forcibly; such as by trying to tweak our sense of humour, the way we react to a given situation, by being more pleasant and believing others too have a mind, by smiling each time somebody says 'thank you', and by understanding that every person in on their own journey and accepting that it's not your position to judge them. Here are 15 steps to help you becoming a more positive person and grateful for all that you have in your life.
The Reason Some People Always Focus On The Negative
October 14, 2013 | Consciousness | J.Richardson
If we look at the physical world, we find that negativity is present -- ordered things have shown the tendency to become disordered sooner or later, however natural. The same applies to human behavior, however genetic. A new study by a University of British Columbia researcher finds that some people are genetically predisposed to see the world darkly.

It may be hard to believe but social networking may serve a basic human need. A growing body of research shows that the need to connect socially with others is as basic as our need for food, water and shelter.

Collective Study Shows That What Means The Most For Our Happiness Are People, Not Things
October 8, 2013 | Happiness | M.Forrester
It may be suggested that the representation of happiness in online media is collective in nature because it is a picture of happiness communicated by relatively few individuals to the masses. But what means most to our collective happiness? According to a study from Lund University, collective picture of what makes us happy is more about relationships and people, and less about things.
