No Greater Sin Than Being Impolite - by Loretta LaRoche

No Greater Sin than Being Impolite

We’re rushing around so much that we’re becoming incredibly intolerant of others. Time has become a measurement of how much needs to get done, and life is a daily race. Sadly, many of us live under the illusion that when we reach the finish line we will feel relief. This becomes a daily ritual that causes a great…

The Ego Illusion - by Dr. Wayne Dyer

The Ego Illusion

No one has ever seen the face of ego. It is like a ghost that we accept as a controlling influence in our lives. I look upon the ego as nothing more than an idea that each of us has about ourselves. The ego is only an illusion, but a very influential one. Letting the ego-illusion become your identity can prevent you from knowing…

Stream Of Life - by Tagore

Stream of Life



The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day

runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.

It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth

in numberless blades of grass

and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.

It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of…

A Hindu Quote

"All the scriptures tell us one thing: “Know thyself.” If you have known yourself, you have known everything else. Know That, by knowing which, you will know everything else. The Bible says, “Seek that kingdom within you.” It is not outside. Seek That within you. Once you have found That, then everything else will be automatically added unto you; you don't have to go looking for outside things, they will all come to you. So learn that first. "

- Swami Satchidananda…

We Teach What We Are - by Dr. Wayne Dyer

We Teach What We Are

When teachers and parents ask what they can do to help young people get off to a healthy start in life, I say, “Set a good example.” Let your respect and love be seen and felt. It works for children just as it does for all of us. Everything depends on what you believe about yourself. If you want to change your life, you have to…

"Give Me Strength" - by Tagore

Give Me Strength

This is my prayer to thee, my lord---strike,

strike at the root of penury in my heart.

Give me the strength lightly to bear my joys and sorrows.

Give me the strength to make my love fruitful in service.

Give me the strength never to disown the poor

or bend my knees before insolent might.

Give me the strength to raise my mind high above daily trifles.

And give me the strength to…

Stardust Serenade - by The Green Guru (Chris Prelitz)

Stardust Serenade

Last week I stayed on the Lakota reservation in Pine Ridge South Dakota—far from city lights. Every night we’d experience a light show better than anything Las Vegas or Hollywood could conjure up. Experiencing the awe and majesty of millions of stars shining down has the power to radically shift your consciousness. I came back to my home in Laguna Beach with a longing to learn more…
