Reconquer the power that’s within you

Reconquer the power that’s within you

It’s time to connect with your power. Now and forever. Women of the world have a power that makes them unique and unbeatable. Unfortunately, over the years, we have struggled to break down gender prejudices and stereotypes that have been created to differentiate us from men — to describe us as weak and lesser than. Even today, we are still fighting these same stereotypes. Right now, you might feel that you have lost the inner strength that tells you when you must fight. You might feel this way... Continue Reading →

Learning together to be happy

Learning together to be happy

World Down Syndrome Day It is no coincidence that International Happiness Day is a day before World Down Syndrome Day. The reason is simple — people with Down syndrome are the happiest people on earth. On my travels around the world, I have visited many schools for children with Down syndrome. I have learned firsthand how truly happy and accepted these children are in their schools. Of course, when I come home and visit what others call “normal” schools, I see how unhappy people are — anxious,... Continue Reading →

Overcoming analysis paralysis to live an inspired life

Overcoming analysis paralysis to live an inspired life

Do you live freely, or are you in your mind jail? Whatever your problems or goals are, don’t think! Let your own inspiration flow. What happens when we think too much without considering our connection with the cosmic intelligence? What happens when we believe that we will find a better solution on our own? We put many arguments on the table to choose one, but that only brings doubts about which one is better. In the end, this often leads us to not the wisest choice, but whatever the memory dictates, or whichever... Continue Reading →

Love and let go

Love and let go

The secret to being happy is to let go and love without attachments. This February 14, several countries around the world will celebrate Valentine’s Day, a day to celebrate love and friendship. But, do we know how to love? Or what love really is? Love, in its essence, is freedom. When we are free, we let go and are not attached to anything or anyone. Attachment is what makes us slaves to life. We feel that we “need” something so badly, but even when we have it, we find that we are not happy. We are not happy because... Continue Reading →

Our inner journey towards peace and non-violence

Our inner journey towards peace and non-violence

We must all understand that if we want to achieve peace, in a world where there is so much hate and violence, we must first find inner peace. It is this inner peace which will bring world peace — a peace that will reflect upon our children, youth, and society, then outward toward all nations. Imagine what the world would be like if everyone lived in peace. Every person on Earth choosing to forgive, be happy and live in gratitude. Do you think it’s possible? Maybe you think it’s only possible in a child’s... Continue Reading →

Merry christmas to ourselves!

Merry christmas to ourselves!

The true meaning of Christmas is within us … A human avalanche captures a store which offers plenty of discounts during the Christmas Holidays. Our head spins around thinking about the expenses of the holidays — presents for the family, a gift for a couple, another gift for grandpa; the twists and turns that come with surviving a year filled with material things. But, are material goods the only things that matter? When do we care about ourselves? Among this external maze of concerns, we forget to connect... Continue Reading →

A call to the younger generation

A call to the younger generation

Across the nation, thousands of young men and women are about to graduate from high school and embark on their next journey as freshmen in colleges and universities. This is certainly a time of joy and self-reflection for them and I see myself in each and every one of them, as I remember back to when I also went through that same experience. Obviously, I’m in a very different place now and I’m aware of many things I didn’t know then. When I sit down and let my mind wander, I imagine a magical encounter between... Continue Reading →

How to help our children discover who they are

How to help our children discover who they are

(The Secret to a Happy, Peaceful and Awakened Life) Being a parent is not easy. I’m not talking about dealing with teething infants, or a toddler’s temper tantrums, or a teenager’s mood swings. I’m not even talking about having to cook meals, assist with the homework, or work two jobs to be able to support your family. While all this is outstanding and important, none of it is the real job of being a parent. The true goal of parenthood will always be to raise happy, peaceful wide awake children, and this... Continue Reading →

Beliefs are not the truth

Beliefs are not the truth

You cannot go beyond your current beliefs if you remain attached to them. The first factor is fundamental, which requires that you realize how your actual beliefs limit you and then being able to let them go. To know the truth of an experience, one that cannot be described with words, you need to let go of everything that you know: the knowledge you’ve gained, your beliefs, and your perceptions. You will reach this truth only when you are open, and willing to say: “Maybe I don’t know as much as I thought... Continue Reading →
