When you long to get home at the end of a trying day, to close the door and block out the noise and haste beyond, is it the colour of the sofas you look forward to most? Or something deeper? If the beacon of respite that is your inner sanctum is more about a feeling than a look, and that feeling is good, pure and peaceful, you have the essence of a mindful home. According to the mindfulness movement which is hugely popular and rooted in ancient Eastern philosophies this is...

' And then you're a player, you don't want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.” ― Terence McKenna A new documentary called The Reality of Truth follows the journey of Zappy Zapolin, a wisdom seeker looking beyond the veil as he searches for a deeper understanding of consciousness and the role of psychedelics and spirituality. He is curious to access the tools available for us to understand the world(s) and various realities around us, and reveal the metaphors that may have been hidden in plain sight for centuries in various religious texts. Could part of the religious experience have to do with plant sacraments? The story begins with this question, and synchronicity allows the answers to become manifest as Zappy interviews various thought-leaders including Deepak Chopra , Ram Dass, Marianne Williamson, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, and Foster Gamble (to name a few) — then journeys to Peru with Michelle Rodriguez ( Fast and the Furious ) to participate in an ayahuasca ceremony.

" The similarities between the two men were not lost on Nancy Reagan, who saw John Paul II as a great man. Once, when reviewing old photos of various leaders, Mrs. Reagan gasped and smiled when she came across a picture of her and her husband with John Paul II. "Oh, my favorite!" she said warmly of the pontiff. (I must here add that Mrs. Reagan's favorite picture of her husband and John Paul II "is the one of the two of them in chairs sitting close to one another, with Ronnie speaking very earnestly and the pope listening very carefully." That photo graces the cover of this book.) When asked what she liked so much about the pontiff, Mrs. Reagan pointed to traits that she felt he shared with her husband: both had been actors, were outdoorsmen, were athletic, and were "charming, kind, gentle, and sincere." Of course, the similarities ran even deeper than that.

He has since taken the decision to shut down all contact after 10pm at night. "It's about sleep and recovery, about really getting deeper sleep on a more consistent basis," Taylor said. "Social media has taken over and its constant. I'm in Holland so I'm several hours ahead of everyone else. At midnight in Holland people in the States are just getting off work. "I really struggled with trying to stay in touch with my friends. But then I realised its taking away from my goal. You can't expect a top performance if you're not giving your body a chance." Taylor believes the changes to sleep and diet -- he has cut down on carbohydrates -- could be worth an "extra three percent" of performance. "I've never doubted my ability," Taylor said. "But it was things that were off the track that were setting me back." Taylor will spend the rest of the season aiming to beat Edwards' world record.

Noles third baseman Dylan Busby had three hits in five at-bats Saturday, including a two-run home run in the third inning to give Florida State a 4-0 lead, as seen in this video courtesy of Fox Sports South: Outfielder Jackson Lueck also starred for FSU with two hits, and he set the tone in the first inning with an RBI triple that scored Busby. From a pitching perspective, Florida State got a dominant outing from Cole Sands, who fired 6.2 scoreless innings with just two hits allowed and eight strikeouts. He may have gone deeper in the game if not for the rain delay forcing a pitching change, but the FSU bullpen managed to piece together 2.1 innings of one-run ball. Duke attempted to mount a miracle rally in the ninth inning, as a Jack Labosky single allowed it to plate its first and only run of the game, but reliever Jim Voyles was able to shut the door for the Seminoles. Florida State is 1-1 in the ACC title game over the past two seasons, and it will have an opportunity to improve upon that record Sunday.

Get comfortable with emptiness, learning to play within unlimited possibility. I personally now prefer being a blank slate every chance I get throughout the day, like the unofficial Buddhist mantra, “Empty, empty. Happy, happy.” I easily put myself into a state of emptiness by watching trees blow in the breeze. 5. Open Yourself to Higher Consciousness In Practicing the Power of Now , spiritual teacher and author Eckhart Tolle extols the value of mindfulness by acting as witness to your thoughts: “So when you listen to a thought, you are aware not only of the thought but also of yourself as the witness of the thought. A new dimension of consciousness has come in.” Have you tried being a witness to your own thoughts? It’s life transforming. The beauty of learning to be mindful at any age is that you express your thoughts at your personal level of truth and authenticity while continuing to dig for deeper understanding.

Light-Bulb Moment Founded in 2010, REConnect is one of the older ventures in this business. In seven years, the company has evolved from being a trader in renewable energy certificates (RECs) to building its own suite of energy efficiency products. Its focus on the latter continues to be in the renewables spacedata analytics for wind and solar farms to provide 15-minute granularity on generation, for example — even as it seeks to expand deeper into the analytics space. While REConnect controls around 45% of the REC market in India, it’s the technology business that Nuwal is most excited about. According to the Union Ministry of Power, India’s renewable energy capacity is expected to go from 50 GW (gigawatts, 1 GW= 1 billion watts) to 175 GW in a decade, and segments such as performance monitoring will explode in parallel, giving ventures such as REConnect a shot in the arm.

But the privatization and secrecy classification system implemented to protect UFO secrets also transferred most true power from the USG inside DC (the Beltway) to these large defense contractors, who were given national security clearance protection for their secrets. At first, the Top Secret Classification was provided to the Pentagon and CIA-related private defense contractors. Later, as these programs expanded and began operating under secret treaties with actual Alien ET groups, much deeper ultra high-technology secrets were discovered that, it was felt, warranted more sophisticated classification and compartmenting, such as Black, Deep Black and Beyond Black. There have been credible reports that a major policy board, Majestic Twelve, was set up to control all Alien ET matters, including “exchangetreaties with Alien ETs; back-engineering of recovered craft and foreign technology transfer; and SSW fleets, capable of deployment in deep space, to be engaged in serious ultra high-tech combat with certain evil Alien ET groups that plan to attack Earth and eliminate all humans and animals.

In this video, hypnosis practitioner Alison Coe, recently received similar messages from her clients about a supernatural event that everybody will witness: “Within the year, there’s going to be a supernatural event… a burst of energy coming from the sky and it’s going to create a split. Basically, some people were going to stay and some people were going to go into a new dimension… a new Earth. They’re not actually leaving their location. They’re going deeper. People here on Earth right now, their purpose is to come into this Earth and act as lightning rods for this new energy to come. They’re all over the globe. They’re acting as a magnet for this energy to come in. Their job is done. The energy is coming. There’s nothing they need to continue to do except stay connected (grounded), keep their vibration high, (and) dont go into fear. Fear is of a low vibration and joy, love, abundance, etc… is of a high vibration, so you want to keep your vibration high.

Recognize every sensation you experience as your physical body falls asleep, as this will help you remain conscious. As you fall deeper into a dream-like state, you may experience some buzzing and heaviness. Use this to help yourself stay conscious and visualize yourself floating above your body. Continue to visualize this until you hopefully reach the point of OBE. Wake Back to Bed Method Though not very enjoyable for those of us who enjoy sleeping, the wake back method is very popular to induce astral projection as well as lucid dreaming. Set your alarm for a few hours before you usually wake up, but don't get up when it goes off, simply shut it off and lay back down once your mind is awake. Ideally, you want to keep your alarm close by so you barely need to move your body to shut it off. This way, your body will be close to falling back asleep but your mind will be awake.

Thats compared to only 31,699,557,639 minutes on our PCs and only 10,923,019,061 minutes of video content on our phones and tablets. What we found was that contrary to the popular narrative that smaller screens were taking away time from the TV glass, when we looked deeper we found that overall time spent viewing on the TV had the most minutes among every age or ethnic demographic looked at, said Peter Katsingris, SVP Audience Insights, Nielsen. In some cases the share of viewing was as much as 97%. Whos to say what we could have done with the 1,089,866 collective years we spent in front of our TVs in the last three of 2016?

Meaningful Roles In Society This week Mark Zuckerberg spoke to the latest class of Harvard graduates, offering advice about the future and inspiration to grow on. Among his ideas was the notion that universal basic income (UBI) , a standard basesalary” for each member of society that can help meet our basic needs regardless of the work we do, is worth exploring. UBI pilot programs are sprouting up all over the world , including one in Oakland, California sponsored by Y Combinator. Many are modeled in part after the State of Alaska's long-termPermanent Fund” which distributes a dividend to every resident so they can share in the wealth gleaned from the state's natural resources equally. While the successfulness of such initiatives can be analyzed several different ways, Zuckerberg emphasized to graduates the need for metrics that go deeper than standard economic measuresmetrics that can help foster innovation.

There’s a deeper problem in society of people forgetting about facts, she said, and she urged the graduates to tackle that, both in being more sophisticated consumers and by being more aggressively involved. But she centered it in an attack on Trump and his aides, whom she said are engaged in a “full-fledged assault on truth and reason.” She called them people who are “denying things we see with our own eyes—like the size of crowds, and then defending themselves by talking about 'alternative facts.' All last year, Clinton campaigned by saying Trump wasnt what America should be. In a sense, that was a lighter charge than what then-President Barack Obama said on her behalf: that Trump’s election was, essentially, a threat to the republic. That’s where Clinton landed on Friday. “When people in power invent their own facts and attack those who question them—it can mark the beginning of the end of a free society,” she said.

Bulls trail Africa 1 conference leaders Western Stormers by 15 points with just four regular-season rounds left, leaving them with virtually no hope of making the knockout stage. Many pundits believe the problems at the franchise run much deeper than Marais and respected rugby analyst and author Dan Retief did not spare the players. "Some big, fat and lazy Bulls are in for a rude shock when John Mitchell marches into Pretoria to crack the whip," he tweeted. Mitchell adopted a more diplomatic stance with the South African media. "I will do a lot of listening and watching when I get involved with Nollis. I think these are exciting times for us and we can do things slightly different." He knows the South African rugby landscape well having guided Golden Lions from 2010 to 2012 before a fall-out with players led to his departure. Many credit Mitchell with laying the foundations for the side that currently are the only genuine challengers to the New Zealand monopoly of Super Rugby.

The secular courses could easily include this wider value-based perspective, but most fail to do so theyre too busy packaging mindfulness for our age of hyper-individualism. But the rampant misuse of mindfulness runs deeper: It has also hijacked the ancient ideal of carpe diem seize the day which goes all the way back to a poem written in 23 B.C. by the Roman poet Horace. Even as we speak, he wrote, envious time flies past; seize the day and leave as little as possible for tomorrow. Based on this message, for centuries the primary meaning of carpe diem has been about grasping fleeting opportunities in life, whether it is the chance to change career or to rescue a crumbling marriage. (Remember Robin Williams in Dead Poets Society ?) Yet my research, based on analysis of thousands of original sources (from personal blogs to political speeches) reveals that around 20% of people now associate the idea of carpe diem with being mindfully in the here and now.
