As we think, so we become
Beliefs are the thoughts and convictions that we generally hold to be true, they are ideas without substance having no actual proof or evidence. Beliefs may contribute to or hinder our development and understanding of the world, and who we are.
People used to believe the earth was flat, but today we know it’s round from testimony and scientific consensus, or you maybe you have flown and seen the curvature of the Earth. The erroneous belief has been replaced by acquired or direct knowledge, therefore we no longer have to believe because we know. But so many were so attached to that particular belief, it took hundreds of years to

A crime against humanity
Marriage is a global institution and if we step back into history there was a natural pairing off mostly between young men and women as they reached a balance of physical and mental maturity that enabled them to live happily and raise a family.
It is probable that there has always been some deviant or criminal behaviour within tribal groups but more so in the field of conquest. But the majority of the world’s population who had achieved a sense of balance and purpose in life would instinctively know when the time for marriage was right and this time was defined as when the girl is capable of bearing children and caring for them.

And a solution to end suffering
Master, what is the secret to happiness?””Not to argue with idiots””Master. I disagree that this can be the secret” “Yes, you are right”
There are many benefits to putting the instructions of Langri Tangpa’s “Eight Verses of Training the Mind” into practice. The practice helps us to eliminate the ignorant mind of self-cherishing and self-grasping, the root of all suffering and problems.
It shows us how to transform adverse conditions into the spiritual path, giving us the opportunity to use our daily problems and issues that would normally be obstacles as our actual daily practice so we can make progress in our spiritual practice.
We live in spiritually degenerate times. Fewer people are

Ideas about growing up, conformity and fashion for girls
Growing up in our materialistic world is a challenge and many the many self esteem issues so many suffer from stem back to those moments of comparison with others, in particular the unrealistic magazine and makeup images of what you should look like.
The fashion industry promotes the body beautiful with shorter skirts, lower necklines, bigger busts, thinner legs, perfected eyebrows, and a pencil thin waistline. Girls are being constantly told exactly how to look and how to be hot, to be desired, and sexy mostly by males.
Our world is very elitist and this is mostly to do with basic survival needs, like more money and

Why I the Reason?
Humans have been using drugs throughout all known history. Almost every culture tested the properties of almost every plant in substance within its domain. Some plants /substances produced fatal results, but some produced therapeutic results and became medicines while others produced results that we refer to as ‘mind altering’.
In hunter gatherer communities, one of two people would take a drug and to gain insight as to where to find food, or solutions to the problems they were experiencing. Often this person was the Shaman who was not always a male in every culture.
The use of drugs like cannabis, mescaline and ayawasca were tools for those special occasions as was alcohol. But it was alcohol

Why should you care?
To some history matters and to others it doesn’t. For some who are completely content, all that matters is this moment but for those who feel uncertain about the nature and purpose of life, they look to history for clues and reasons for our existence.
In examining our history, the field of archaeology has developed. But this is not an exact science and the results of all our archaeological excavations and research produce results and answers which are suppositions and not facts. Of course many archaeologists and researchers dress up the evidence to fit into their particular theory.
Classical mythology is that of the Christian Bible in which all Christian biased researchers interpret all evidence as

An old remedy for modern times
There is no doubt that massage is perhaps the oldest healing art because we have known for many centuries that just a little rubbing ouch go away. But it’s not just humans, most animals enjoy being stroked and rubbed, primarily because it makes them feel good.
In today’s modern world what we feel is shaped by external forces, and much money we have, how good we look and who our friends are. In the old world he felt good because you were powered the right food, from keeping enjoyable company and living a life that had some sense of purpose.
In this age of individualism, relationships tend to be superficial and our happiness is

Forming attitudes and opinions
Everyone has an opinion about almost everything and opinions shape attitudes which in turn shape lives. Here we have an article about dress code and various opinions.
In this scenario, these two young ladies went to a meeting and you have to admit, they do look gorgeous. Well their faces are not the most pretty, but their manner of dress makes them look hot and most men would probably like to think ‘sexually available’.
In fact, a lot of people would think that girls dressed like this are hookers or sex workers whereas they are not. They are simply two girls who enjoy their physicality, they like to be seen as attractive and they enjoy people

A guide for survival
We face so many challenges today, it’s simply mind-boggling to try and find any perspective. Everyone has a different opinion about what’s going on in life, especially politics, crime, poverty and what is about Muslims?
We know that life is finite and there is almost nothing that any ordinary individual can do or say that’s going to have any positive effect on the state of the world. Therefore the majority of people except that life is fate and we simply have to do the best we can to be the type of person we want to be.
Another word for fate is karma meaning ‘as you sow, so shall you reap’. The Western use of

Key to our evolution and survival or demise as a species
When we consider our history over the past few thousand years, Western science has virtually ‘only just’ discovered DNA. In their analysis, scientists because they couldn’t understand what they were dealing with were quick to label most of our DNA as junk. However if we jump back to ancient India they have known about DNA thousands of years and they use that knowledge to create a strong and healthy population.
One way of understanding DNA is that it is the blueprint for the creation and the function of our body and mind. Let’s remember that our body is a composite of all the food that we have eaten
