Thoughts are the Forerunner of Our Actions

Thoughts are the forerunner of our actions said Max Muller and he was right. What we think more than what we say or do is who we become. If we follow our thoughts, based on our current state of mind, we may surprise ourselves and find that we are not in a very good...

Your Inner Journey to Self-Knowledge

Don’t Give Up Yet

Don’t Give Up Yet

I am sure some of you just want to cut and run and let go of what you doing right now. Sounds great and maybe even easy for you to do. To go off to that peaceful place of no or fewer responsibilities. To remove yourself from all the chaos life is presenting right now....

3 strikes and you are out! One, two, three go! 3 is the number of time: past, present, future. 3rd time lucky. There are 3 primary colors. The Holy Trinity. The 3 leaf clover. The list goes on. The only important 3 to focus on today are these 3 questions. Ask...
