This is it. Always we hope someone else has the answer. Some other place will be better, some other time it will turn out. This is it. No one else has the answer, no other place will be better and it has already turned out. At the center of your being you have the answer, You know who you are and you know what you want. There is no need to run outside for better seeing nor to peer from a window. Rather abide at the center of your being; for the more you leave it the less you learn.
Lao-Tzu

The essence of all religions is love, compassion, and tolerance. Kindness is my true religion. The clear proof of a person's love of God is if that person genuinely shows love to fellow human beings.
The Dalai Lama

It's not as important who you love or what you love as it is important that you are just loving. Love, however, is not automatic. It takes practice and heart focus to love people in a universal way.
Doc Childre

You and I might be in heaven right now and not even know it because we are paying attention to hell.

Upcoming events (4+)

Qigong Cultivation for Anti-aging & Longevity (Cross posting)

Online event

$17.00

What is Qigong? Qi (aka chi or ki) is often translated as "energy" or "breath" and Gong (aka gung or do) as "skillful work." Qigong can be said to be work that we do to become skillful in cultivating life force energy. This energy is not imaginary, but rather the fundamental bio-magnetic energy that flows through all of nature including each cell of our bodies.

This energy can be come blocked, inefficient, out of balance, excessive or deficient. Through mindful movement, breath and visualizations we can begin to restore this energy to a more fluid, or if you will, "youthful" state and begin to cultivate this life force energy.

The top medical schools in the country have been doing extensive research into the benefits of Qigong and Tai Chi. Harvard in particular, puts out articles nearly every month about the health benefits of Tai Chi:
