2. Tarakananda presents The Key to Finding God posted at The Atma Jyoti Blog, saying, "Methods, such as yoga (meditation), worship, and good deeds are necessary to successfully prosecute our quest for God.

By engaging in them we live out our intention."

Jeanie Marshall presents Keep it Supremely Simple (KISS) in Significant Relationships posted at JMviews Meditation and Empowerment, saying, "I have long felt that the common advice to "Keep it Simple, Stupid" is a conflicting and demeaning statement. To keep it simple is smart and wise. The stupid reference has not ever appealed to me, whether it relates to keeping it simple or making it complicated. So I have re-constructed the KISS acronym to be "Keep it Supremely Simple.""

But the problem is this-HOW can you ever CHANGE your vibration in order to attract that which you desire? The answer is in the key of TRANSMUTATION, that ancient process from alchemy that dares to change ordinary metal into gold, that dares to seek the elixir of life to cure all diseases and to restore even the aged back unto eternal youth."

Usually he is successful in several other areas of his life. Similarly, each time I meet a person who’s a failure in one area of his life, generally that failure seems to be a pattern throughout other areas of his life. In this article I discuss the 7 most common roadblocks to success."

Usually, we react to this feeling by grasping for memories, even if they are painful ones, to help us define ourselves. However, I suggest in this article, simply allowing that memoryless state to be for a little while can help us realize that, in our essence, we are separate from our memories and the labels we put on ourselves based on them."
Astrid Lee presents Compassion ~ video Karen Armstrong posted at World Healing, saying, "“Let’s move from toleration towards appreciation.” said the world-famous author and scholar Karen Armstrong, in her speech last month at TED – an annual symposium of some of the smartest & influential thinkers and leaders of our time.
