Compassion and the Individual Dalai Lama
I believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. From the moment of birth, every human being wants happiness and does not want suffering. Neither social conditioning nor education nor ideology affect this. From the very core of our being, we simply desire contentment. I don't know whether the universe, with its countless galaxies, stars and planets, has a deeper meaning or not, but at the very least, it is clear that we humans who live on this earth face the task of making a happy life for ourselves. Therefore, it is important to discover what will bring about the greatest degree of happiness.....

The history behind Ireland’s ancient Druids Maria O'Farrell Carr
Who were the Druids? Today the word conjures thoughts of magic, wizardry and spiritualism, but in ancient times the definition of Druid was much broader. During the Iron Age, the Druids made up the higher-educated tier of Celtic society, including poets, doctors and spiritual leaders. The legacy of this last group is the most enduring and the most mysterious. The earliest evidence of the Druid spiritual tradition is from 25,000 years ago and is found in...

Understanding our Dreams Monika Muranyi
All of us need sleep to function properly the next day, yet not everyone can claim that they dream. Why? Do we all dream? If so, why do only a few remember them? Why do some recall their dreams and others don’t? What do our dreams mean? While there are many answers to these questions given from a diverse range of experts, there is no common agreement about the true purpose of dreaming. Kryon, an entity channeled by Lee Carroll, helps unravel this puzzle, and gives us a new way of looking at dreams.

The Energy of Numbers Monika Muranyi
Numerology is the science of numbers, and there are many different forms of numerology on the planet today. Some of these include the Kabbalah (developed from the Hebrew alphabet), Chaldean Numerology (developed in Ancient Babylon), and Pythagorean (created by Greek Philosopher Pythagoras). These examples demonstrate that numerology is ancient. The science of numerology is essentially all about the energy of numbers. How can a number have energy? Numbers are simply numbers, right? The answer is complex, but if you’re interested, let’s learn the basics.

The Doom Bias Monika Muranyi
What has been the predominant prophecy on the planet? History shows us that it’s the scenario of Armageddon, where humanity destroys itself. That was supposed to happen at the turn of the millennium, or the year 2000. Remember the big scary prediction of 2012? The prediction was that we wouldn’t make it to 2013, since it was “the end of time.” Obviously neither of these predictions happened, as we are now several years past those dates! However, it appears that our appointment with doom is still alive, and just keeps being delayed. Why does our doomsday clock keep changing? Have we actually entered a new reality? If so, why is everybody still waiting for the end? Why do we have this “doom bias?” Interested? Then read on (smile).

Wellness Tip
Greens
Have you heard of arugula? It is a green, leafy vegetable that contains about 20 times more beta-carotene and vitamin C, and 8 times more calcium than iceberg lettuce. When making green salads at home, consider opting for dark green leaves, such as arugula, romaine, chicory and thinly sliced kale. Substituting these greens in salads and on sandwiches creates a more nutrient dense meal.

The Benefits of Fiber: For Your Heart, Weight, and Energy
Confused about fiber? You’re not alone. Dietary fiber is a misunderstood nutrient. Many people know it is important, but not much more than that. This article fills you in on the two main types of fiber – soluble and insoluble -- where to find them, and the health benefits they provide. Dietary fibers are found naturally in the plants that we eat. They are parts of plant that do not break down in our stomachs, and instead pass through our system undigested. All dietary fibers are either soluble or insoluble. Both types of fiber are equally important for health, digestion, and preventing conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, diverticulitis, and constipation...

Stuffed Tomatoes with Goat Cheese
Category: Side Dishes
Description: This is a great recipe to try when the tomatoes and herbs are ready for harvest.

There are many advantages to goat cheese. Since one member of my family is lactose intolerant, we embraced this easy to digest cheese for its flavor. And now that I am also concerned about fat content and calories, I have learned that goat cheese is the healthy choice both those reasons.
When compared to cow milk products like cream cheese, goat cheese is lower in fat, calories and cholesterol. It also provides more calcium and fewer carbohydrates than cream cheese. Even though goat cheese has less calories, it has a full, rich and creamy flavor.
