How to Find Genuine Abundance

Abundance is a baffling issue for most people because they approach it from a place of scarcity and lack. Changing your perspective is the first step is achieving genuine abundance. How much financial success you now enjoy, even if it is considerable, doesn’t necessarily improve an inner feeling that underlies a sense of lack: This is the feeling of “I am not enough.” As long as this is your baseline belief, abundance will be elusive.

Five Qualities that Help Balance Pitta Dosha

The three doshas are naturally dynamic, which means that they constantly respond to changes in your life. The biggest changes occur seasonally, and summer is the season when Pitta dosha is strongly affected, because heat and humidity are two qualities that summer shares with Pitta, which is warm and moist. Summer heat can easily aggravate Pitta, so you want to pay special attention during this season.

The Spiritual Value of Resilience

You can access every gift that the spiritual path opens up. Some of these gifts are well known, others are hidden. It might never occur to you, for example, that resilience is a spiritual quality. Resilience is the same as being flexible; it is the opposite of being rigid or stuck. In Buddhism resilience is defined by a simple image: in a storm, the grass bends with the wind while the mighty tree is blown over.

Find Your Purpose and Grow at the Same Time

If they are fortunate, some people find their purpose in life and gain great satisfaction from it. Some people set spiritual goals and find fulfillment through inner growth. Unfortunately, the two groups don’t tend to be one and the same. In a society consumed with work, looking inward isn’t a priority. It might seem that the two worlds we all live in, the outer material world and the inner subjective world, aren’t even compatible.

El Juego, el Niño Interior y Tú

Poder jugar hace felices a los niños, pero crecer cambia esto y no para mejor. Los niños juegan, pero los adultos trabajan. Esa es la opinión predominante, como lo ha sido durante siglos, así que veamos a dónde se fue la diversión de la vida y por qué necesita regresar. Lo ideal, de hecho, es llenar de juego toda tu vida, incluida tu vida espiritual.

Play, the Inner Child, and You

Being allowed to play makes children happy, but growing up changes this and not for the better. Children play, but adults work. That’s the prevailing view, as it has been for centuries, so let’s see where the playfulness of life went and why it needs to come back. The ideal, in fact, is to infuse your whole life with play, including your spiritual life.

Cinco Señales de Crecimiento Espiritual

De todas las formas en que uno puede crecer, la mayoría están marcadas por aspectos externos (por ejemplo, hacerse más rico, más exitoso o con una familia más numerosa) y otras se conocen por su comportamiento y actitud, por ejemplo, volverse más feliz, más amoroso y más maduro. El único tipo de crecimiento que es totalmente silencioso, oculto e invisible es el crecimiento espiritual. El Bhagavad-Gita dice que incluso alguien que está iluminado no puede ser reconocido por señales externas.

Consejos Para Una Carrera Dichosa

Si suena extraño emparejar las dos palabras "dicha" y "carrera", la razón es clara: en la vida moderna, la satisfacción personal no es una alta prioridad cuando se trata del ámbito laboral. Los encuestadores reportan que a la mayoría de las personas les gusta su trabajo, pero eso no es decir mucho. Por lo general, una semana laboral moderna consiste en largas horas, llevar el trabajo a casa, soportar las dificultades interpersonales en el trabajo y enfrentar el estrés repetido.

Tips for a Blissful Career

If it sounds strange to pair the two words “blissful” and “career,” the reason is easy to find: In modern life personal satisfaction is not a high priority when it comes to the workplace. Pollsters find that most people like their jobs, but that doesn’t place the bar high. Typically, a modern work week consists of long hours, taking work home, putting up with interpersonal difficulties on the job, and confronting repeated stress.

Deepak Explica el Significado Más Profundo del Yoga

En las últimas dos décadas, el yoga ha pasado de un relativo anonimato en Occidente a una práctica bien reconocida que se ofrece en miles de estudios, centros comunitarios, hospitales, gimnasios y clubes de salud. Aunque el yoga se presenta comúnmente como una tendencia popular de acondicionamiento físico, en realidad es el núcleo de la ciencia védica que se desarrolló en el valle del Indo hace más de cinco mil años.
