1. Offer something to someone for free.
If you’re a yoga teacher, offer a free class or workshop for beginners. If you’re a baker, bake some cookies and go give them to the homeless or poor. If you’re a writer, write a manifesto or essay and offer it to your audience for free.
Get the idea? The possibilities are endless.

When you know what it means to be in relationship with Goodness, you never feel bad. Unhappiness, anger, fear, anxiety -- negative states -- cannot make a home in you when you know what it means to be in relationship with what is Good.
If we understand this properly, it strips away all of the justification we have for being unpleasant. Our work is as simple as this: to see and to be what we are before we speak or act. If we were to see and be what we… Continue

Let me share my thoughts with you. In western culture unlike in Asia where I live today, there's a definite emphasis on individualism and independence. Continue
It's a rather selfish approach to life that gives rise to widespread unhappiness. The fact that we feel little or no responsibility for others, feeds bad attitudes.
For example, "I'm not helping you, take care of your own problems." When a friend tells me…

Let's take a look at the things you need to let go of in order to become a happier person.
1. The Approval Of Others
Who gives a sh*t what other people think? If you are happy with the decisions you have made, then whose business is that but your own? Think of how much you could achieve if you stopped letting other people's opinions dictate the way you live your life. Do you, and engage… Continue

Possessiveness is a common feeling that most of us and our fellow beings experience at many occasions in life. We often mistake possessiveness, care and love together. But this is actually a greediness to keep up your friend, things, and stuff within yourself and not letting it out. So before going in detail into judging this feeling, let us see what real possessiveness is all… Continue

Do you worry sometimes? Well, this is a silly question, since everybody worries sometimes, some more, some less.
What are worries? They are just thoughts that pass through the mind. They are not facts. They are not the truth. They have no reality. They are like a mental game of asking, “What if…”, and nothing more.
Look at the clouds that pass through the sky. They are made of vapor, and they change form as they move through the sky.… Continue

The benefits of practicing gratitude are nearly endless. People who regularly practice gratitude by taking time to notice and reflect upon the things they're thankful for experience more positive emotions, feel more alive, sleep better, express more compassion and kindness, and even have stronger immune systems. And gratitude doesn't need to be reserved only for momentous occasions: Sure, you might express gratitude after receiving a promotion at work, but…

“As a man sows, so shall he also reap” refers basically to the Law of Karma and seems to be easy to grasp; if you sow rice, you will reap rice. If you plant apple, you will harvest apple. However, its application in daily life in detail, the method of its working and its far-reaching consequences are so vast and is getting more complicated as our knowledge increases. This normally brings in mind thousands of questions that sometimes…

If the need to grow is deep within you, if that is your ultimate aim, then, first of all, you should be clear about your experience.
You know what you have experienced, but whatever you have not, you need not dismiss it by saying that it does not exist. Just say you don’t know. It is in accepting that you don’t know that you will actually grow.
If you want to experience… Continue

Fear is, and has always been, nothing but a self-limiting reaction that we cling to in the darkness of our present life-level, having mistaken it for a shield of self-protection. But no wrong reaction can keep you captive once you begin to see it for what it is. Continue

Getting from bitterness to happiness may not take as long as you think. It is a situation that we have all faced. We’ve all been hurt by someone and allowed that hurt to fester into anger and bitterness. Ironically enough anger, viewed by many as a defense mechanism, only increases our own pain.
Only when we allow ourselves to forgive do we move beyond the feelings of… Continue

Accepting and allowing yourself--with all your physical, emotional, and psychological idiosyncrasies--invigorates this Love that is imbued within you; enabling you to… Continue

Anger is an intense and primal expression of the life force, a burning flame that cannot be ignored. It is the psyche’s alarm system, demanding that attention be given to a limit or boundary of ours that is being invaded, to an injury or pain that is being denied, or to an area of our being that has become unhealthy. The function of anger is similar to the function of a fever. It helps to burn out unwanted, inharmonious elements. Its purpose is to restore balance and… Continue
