GURU DAKSHINA ~ a love offering, by Sw. Vandana Jyothi

Guru Dakshina” is a term which means a payment of some kind, a donation given to the one who imparts spiritual knowledge, that is, a guru—literally, “the dispeller (Ru) of the darkness of ignorance (Gu).” Only light, of course, can obliterate the dark and where the light is, there is no dark. The two do not and cannot co-exist.... Read more.

It is these most difficult times that can turn out to be the most profound. Let me share with you four ways that your darkest moments could be the making of your life, should you choose to see this as a new doorway..... more

We all know that the holiday season can be the most stressful and that, ironically, many of us find ourselves strung out and unhappy at a time when we are expected to be our happiest. How we handle the stress of the season has a lot to do with the kind of person we are. Knowing that, we can use specific strategies to deal with holiday demands and make the season what is was meant to be — joyous..... more

The Case For Telepathy

How many times have you, your family, or friends began to think of someone, and the phone rings and they're on the phone? Coincidence? That's what a scientist would say, because they've not been able to replicate this under "controlled conditions" in a laboratory. Or perhaps you or one of your family members suddenly receives a feeling or message that another family member in another city was injured or died? And how many times have you heard that twins or a couple married for many years can read each other's thoughts?.... more

Excerpt from Osho, The First Buddha in the Dental Chair: Amusing Anecdotes by His Personal Dentist

Swami Devageet's journey to higher consciousness is told in a heart-warming sincere way-humorous, yet profound — in his book, Osho, The First Buddha in the Dental Chair: Amusing Anecdotes by His Personal Dentist (Sammasati Publishing).  The unique book reveals an intimate and charming portrait of the revered spiritual master and how he worked to bring enlightenment to the author and to humanity sitting in the arms of a dental chair. The globally revered mystic sage Osho brought forth profound new insights while sitting in the dental chair of his trusted personal dentist, Devageet. The following is one of those discoveries that he revealed to Devageet, as the dentist took frantic notes to keep up with his beloved Master's words..... more

An MD's Perspective on How to Avoid, Treat and Reverse Diabetes

Diabetes matters. One in three children born today is projected to develop the condition, based on current trends. This condition already afflicts over a quarter of a billion people worldwide, including 25 million Americans. Within the U.S., insulin resistance and prediabetes (also known as metabolic syndrome and syndrome X) affect another 79 million adults. Accelerated rates of heart, vascular, and brain diseases, cancer, vision loss, impotence, and amputations are among diabetes-induced complications. Of every three people with diabetes, two will die early of heart disease or a stroke. Today, diabetes is the major cause of heart disease & stroke as well as being the seventh most common cause of death and yet, diabetes is both preventable and treatable, as detailed in this article..... more

The Extraordinary Science of Addictive Junk Food

I believe many of our country's chronic health problems would simply disappear if greater attention was paid to the root problem — the food you eat. Americans' reliance on processed foods is a major factor that drives the rampant disease increases in the US, such as diabetes. According to a new report from the American Diabetes Association, an estimated 22.3 million people were living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes in 2012, up from 17.5 million in 2007. >But why do Americans buy so much processed food and junky snacks? Well, first of all, junk foods are heavily promoted by the US government via agricultural subsidies for crops like corn and soy. Add to that misleading yet highly effective marketing, and — the focus of this article — the addictive nature of junk food, which is a science in and of itself..... more

How Garlic Can Save Your Life

Research on garlic indicates that it may provide an ideal low-cost and safe alternative to drugs and vaccines in reducing the three most common causes of death in the world. In a world mesmerized by the false promises of pharmaceutical industry marketing copy, as well as inundated with aggressively marketed dietary supplements, many of which are manufactured by the same companies making a killing off patented chemicals (Bayer owns One A Day, Pfizer owns Centrum), it is reassuring to know that the kitchen pantry will never fail us..... more

The Green Report by Susun Weed

I have some lovely plants to share with you. You probably won't find most of these beauties growing wild where you live, but they are generally easy to grow. Beware! The flowers we choose for our gardens are often poisonous! Some of these garden plants are medicinal and a few are edible, but they are in my garden primarily for their sweet scents and their glorious colors..... more


Quantum Researchers Able to Stop and Restart Light by Waking Times

In two independent experiments that defy the notions of Einstein, researchers have been able to stop, then restart a beam of light. Ordinarily, light travels at the speed of 186,282 miles per second, but the research team of Lene Hau, a professor of physics at Harvard, who in 1999 was able to slow light down to 38 miles per hour, has been able to trap light in a cloud of sodium atoms super-cooled to near 'absolute zero'..... more

Many Worlds, Many Timelines — The Multiverse and Time Travel by Marie D. Jones and Larry Flaxman

Our scientific knowledge and technological achievement has yet to catch up to the limitless dreams of our imaginations. But perhaps just because we have yet to achieve time travel in our universe, in our particular point along the cosmic arrow of time, doesn't mean it isn't achievable...and maybe the key is the universe itself..... more


Rivers and Stories

In this essay, Pulitzer prize-winning poet Robert Hass brings our attention to the potential resilience of rivers as stories across cultures, places, and time. A book of river stories is, of course, an invitation to think about the relation between rivers and stories. It is also an occasion to think about the condition of the world's rivers, which we need urgently to do at this moment in the history of the human relation to the earth..... more

Water Water - Where? Where?

This is about coming water shortages that will be very severe. The ramifications are serious. They say, "you can only live three days without water." "Big deal," you respond. "I've got plenty. And if there's enough to supply thousands of cities today, which means billions of people, why on earth are you beating the water bucket?" The answer is simple. Because the water bucket is half empty..... more

Water is one of the basic necessities of life yet in a recent survey, nearly 57 percent of Americans said they don't have any drinking water supply in case of an emergency. You might be able to live a while without food or shelter, but you won't be able to live long without water. You'll need it to keep your body working properly, prepare your food and even for hygiene.This article delves into the necessities of water, helping you understand the importance of water, tips on how much water to use for your food storage, and even a water storage calculator to help you figure out how much water you and your family will need in case of an emergency..... more
