(Thich Nhat Hanh) The Earth is our mother, nourishing and protecting us in every moment–giving us air to breathe, fresh water to drink, food to eat and healing herbs to cure us when we are sick. Every breath we inhale contains our planet’s nitrogen, oxygen, water vapor and trace elements. When we breathe with mindfulness, we can experience our interbeing with the Earth’s delicate atmosphere, with all the plants, and even with the sun, whose light makes possible the miracle of photosynthesis. With every breath, we can experience communion. With every breath, we can savor the wonders of life.
(Aaron Kesel) Five years after becoming the first nation to fully legalize marijuana, Uruguay is struggling to keep up with the demand by consumers of cannabis, High Times reported.
(Anna Hunt) The combination of meditation and music may be one of the simplest ways to fend off depression. The two have no unpleasant side-effects. Nearly everyone can enjoy them, and the cost is negligible. They can be used together or stand-alone to reduce stress, regulate mood and reconnect with one’s soul. They are an easy way to actively nurture our mood. As well, they can help mitigate the stressed-out and overwhelmed human condition that has become all too common.
(Anna Hunt) Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that originated in the Indian Vedic culture. It is one of the oldest healing modalities that is still practiced today. Ayurvedic home remedies are very practical for people looking to address anxiety and stress. Moreover, Ayurvedic practices can improve mental clarity, sleep, pain, stiffness, hair, skin, and more.
(Azriel ReShel) Many centuries ago, Lao Tzu, spoke of the four cardinal virtues, teaching that when we practice them as a way of life, we come to know the truth of the universe. The ancient Chinese master said that living and practicing these teachings can open you to higher wisdom and greater happiness, as they realign you to the source and enable you to access all the powers that source energy has to offer.
(Dr. Mercola) Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3), popularized by Arm & Hammer more than 150 years ago, is a staple in many homes for baking and cleaning purposes, but this inexpensive ingredient also has a number of medicinal uses and benefits. It rates right up there with hydrogen peroxide as one of the most inexpensive and safe health tools around, so it makes sense to learn all you can about the many uses of baking soda.
(Phillip Schneider) It’s often half-jokingly said that if there was one thing that could bring Americans together, it would be cannabis. That might seem a little farfetched at first, but once you discover how many people want cannabis legalized, it will make sense.
(Jon Rappoport) Recent events, about which I won’t go into detail, have caused me to say, we are having a spiritual experience.
(Dr. Mercola) Plastic has become an incredibly harmful convenience, now threatening environmental and human health alike, and in more ways than one. With Earth Day being tomorrow, there is no better time to analyze the impact bottled water has had on our planet. There’s the issue of bulk plastics in our landfills, where it will remain indefinitely since most plastic does not biodegrade,1 and microplastics — microscopic pieces of degraded plastic — which now choke waterways across the globe and contaminate drinking water and sea life.
(Anna Hunt) There’s a growing body of scientific evidence that confirms the many benefits of meditation. These include improved cognitive function, stronger immune system, and lower stress and anxiety.

(Christina Sarich) Have you ever wondered what makes the difference between a living and non-living process? What makes us “alive” instead of just machines or robots acting out commands? What is the life force, or what ancient philosophers called the “animus”? It is light, and this is the fundamental method by which your cells and DNA communicate.
(Isaac Davis) The American public is being triggered to fear scary black assault rifles, and in the wake of school shootings and mass shootings, many are demanding the revocation of their 2nd Amendment rights. Nearly 30 years ago, though, one of the greatest conspiracy books of all time accurately predicted these exact events, indicating that the […]
(Mike Sygula) In 1997, Deep Blue — the computer created by IBM — defeated World Chess Champion, Garry Kasparov. Some say that it was one of the first major examples of AI in action, others believe that the technology used was still quite simple and shouldn’t even be called AI.
(Robert Torres) “When you look into the abyss, the abyss also looks into you.” ~Nietzche
I read this in the context of quantum entanglement: that as the observers we become part of a quantum system – one with the observed. More like-minded scientists are coming to the realization that we are the cause of many of our own phenomena.
(Alex Pietrowski) The first two pharmaceutical antidepressants were clinically introduced in the 1950’s, and the conditions they were supposed to treat would have at that time been found in about 50 to 100 persons per million. Today, some 13% of Americans now take antidepressants daily, even though we don’t yet understand the long-term effects of most psychotropic drugs.
