During this 2.5 minute audio excerpt from an hour-long radio interview, Zen Buddhist priest Rev. Taka Kawakami explains how life is in the present moment.
He says that people often get excited thinking about the future. We think that we will be superhuman tomorrow, but that we are only regular today. So we put things off. With that attitude, we let life slip past us.Read More
"Doctor! Doctor! It hurts when I do this!" "Then don't do that."
That sounds simple, right? Well....
In this short vlog, Paul Crouse talks about clearly seeing the things that we all do to sabotage ourselves, and choosing to change that behavior. Because If we don't, we'll keep on doing the same things over and over again, and never get where we want to be.Read More
What is worry?
Worry is focusing your attention on your fears repeatedly. It is a habit; a form of conditioned thinking.
Why is Worrying Bad?
Worry is a waste of time and energy. It does absolutely nothing to change what you are worried about.
It is also destructive. It causes a great deal of stress, which is unhealthy physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Worrying simply reinforces the fear you already have in your life. Fear is paralyzing and keeps you away from living your life to the fullest.
The good news is that you can stop worrying if you choose to.Read More
Would you rather be walking on a beach right now? Or doing something else? Do you feel stuck?

You are constantly and relentless being told by society that you must buy stuff. Lots of stuff. You are a consumer, so you must consume. If you do not, you are not contributing to society. Your status is judged by the quality and quantity of your things; the Armani suit, the Rolex watch and the Mercedes car.
While there is nothing inherently wrong in having things - even nice things - yet you set yourself up for a life of endless suffering by making “buying stuff” the center point of your life. You will never have enough. There always a bigger house to be bought and smarter smartphone. You will spend more and more of your limited time working to pay off your debts, and less time on the human relationships which are the most important parts of life.
Many people think that world is getting worse by the day. But that is not true. Life is better for humanity now than ever in history.
Yet this belief in a worsening world gets in the way of solving the real problems that need to be addressed. By having an overly negative view of the world (and life), you lay the seeds for crippling depression and anxiety.Read More
