Dec/14 - Creating the Universal Ideal; Intentional Community with Cosmic Standards
The founding of a community is in part like the founding of a society, or even an entire world. It is no small matter. As with all great inventions, the form is always followed by inspired conception. If an idea has great merit and real quality, then so too will the device or community. Like a seed, good ideas must be planted upon fertile ground where they can grow and bloom. Lacking this, all objectives will either fail or simply never grow beyond a certain point. Everyone knows that to grow a plant requires knowledge of soil, climate, moisture and sunlight. To grow a strong community from the seed of even the greatest planning, requires knowledge of resources, social circumstance, wisdom and spiritual focus.

Nov/23 - Bad Breath - The 3 Prong Approach to Deal with Bad Breath
Picture this: A man's at a party and a woman across the room catches his eye. So he moves on over to start up a conversation with her. He introduces himself and as soon as she opens her mouth - he recoils in horror. Why? Bad breath. Her breath is strong enough to kill an elephant. He just has to back away.

Nov/22 - The Dawn of Drugs
How did it all begin? strangely, no doubt, in the morning of time and space on this planet. Purposeful cultivation of drug plants is thought to have started during the neolithic period, somewhat after 7000 B.C. In most parts of the world. But the gathering of plants that do weird things to the mind had doubtless gone on for millennia. A fantasy about the discovery of Marijuana, one of the oldest cultivated species, can stand metaphorically for all the rest.

Nov/14 - The Pro's And Cons Of Being In Love Online
Due to unsociable working hours or simply the death of the community, more and more people these days are finding love online. Online dating is the fastest growing way to meet your love, though it has its pitfall. Whilst online dating agencies may offer a quick way to meet these love birds, instant messaging using programs such as ICQ, MSN, or Odigo offer a lightning speed way of getting very intimate, because you can be just who you want to be when you are chatting online, and none will notice your blush if you say something wrong and most importantly, it allow you to take risk that you would never attempt in the real world.

Nov/13 - Cannabis and Sex
Cannabis can have some extremely potent effects on sex. Some of the effects are directly physiological, while many others are simply perceived – but a perceived effect more often than not also leads to an actual, physiological change. Throughout history, Cannabis and its preparations such as Bhang and Hashish have been used for sexual reasons. Some used it as an aphrodisiac, and some used it as an inhibitor. Because of the multiple uses of Cannabis for sexual reasons in history and the taboo (and often illegal) status of this ancient, sacred plant today it can be difficult to establish just exactly how this plant affects us and our sexual natures.

Nov/11 - Do You Have an Anxiety Disorder or Suffer From Depression?
Do you know what it feels like to be anxious? The nervousness, heart pounding and sweating before making a business call. The churning in your stomach before you ask the pretty girl out on a date. The tension you feel when you speak in front of a group. Anxiety for some of us is a good thing. It gets us ready to take action. It makes you study harder for an exam and keeps you alert when your making a presentation. Basically it helps us be in a peak state of performance - ready to go.

Nov/08 - Love Leads To Authentic Happiness
True Love is a profound feeling of strong attraction or affection. Love is the route to authentic happiness. George Sand beautifully expressed that, "there is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved." Many consider love to be blind, as love sees no boundaries of caste, creed, age, sex or religion. It is sacred and unselfish. However, Will Moss is of the opinion that "Love is not blind - It sees more and not less, but because it sees more it is willing to see less."

Nov/06 - Learning to Breathe Your Way to Health
Living a 9-5 existence in the office plus the constant demands at home puts even the most positive person under considerable stress and anxiety. At the office, a typical career executive or a rank-and-file employee would have to juggle between one task to another. Often under time pressure, office workers try to beat the clock and turn in quality outputs every single day. Just imagine the hustle and bustle that goes on at the floor of the stock market at nine o' clock in the morning on a busy Monday. Try to think of the hassles encountered by a kindergarten teacher that is in charge of at least 10 four and five-year olds. Or try to even begin what a day is like for an emergency room doctor in a crime-ridden inner city hospital.

Nov/06 - Nutrition 101: The Good, The Bad and the Hungry.

Nov/05 - The Power Of Love

With several studies made about all sorts of human behavior, the effect of love in its assorted guises brought up some surprising revelations.

Nov/05 - Pregnancy and Smoking
If you're a woman who smokes, you will be familiar with how much you enjoy a cigarette. You probably enjoy one when you wake up, and you probably enjoy many more throughout the course of your day. Cigarettes are highly addictive, and whether you know it or not, they rule your life in many ways. You probably think about them almost constantly, and you're willing to put your life at risk to have them even if you don't admit to it.

Nov/04 - Working With The Energy Of Gratitude
One of the best things that you can do is to have gratitude; for everything that you have, everything that you have done, for all the people in your life, and for the process of unfolding and development. It is essential. Gratitude is one of the higher vibrations in this life and it attracts a super-flow in your life. Without gratitude one can become arrogant, and isolated. Until you really look at all that you have, and appreciate all that you have been given, things can be meaningless. Did you have anything to do with your looks? Or your eye color? Or a perfectly healthy body? Or where you were born? Or that you live in one of the freest countries on earth? And that you don't experience war first hand? Not at all.

My mother was going to the dialysis center three times a week and suffering from end-stage renal disease when I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I was only 24 when my doctor told me I had it. I remember crying constantly the rest of that day.

Nov/02 - Sony Ericsson W580i this w580i seems to be a mid-path between cheaper and costlier W-for-walkman phones.

Nov/02 - Medical Marijuana - Is It For Real?
The humble little cannabis sativa plant is the center of one of the hottest issues between politics, religion, and medicine in all of history. Amidst all of the controversy and regardless of where they stand on the issue, medical professionals must find themselves curious about it. Is marijuana the miracle drug it is purported to be in some circles, or is this a lot of media hype? And likewise, is marijuana the dangerous, addicting road to drug-addled debauchery that the moral crusaders would have us believe, or is that, too, a lot of hype?

Nov/01 - An extraordinary Healer from the Philippines
Over the years there has been much controversy about the so-called miracle healers of the Philippines. Their ability to open peoples bodies and perform operations without the use of any surgical equipment i.e their bare hands or with rusty hunting knives, in the absence of any anaesthetics and the skin of their patient re-seals without any noticeable marking or scars defies not only conventional medical knowledge but also flies in the face of what we consensually call reality. How can a human body open and close by touch? How can solid objects become permeable to allow a hand to move through it?

Oct/31 - Present Moment Is Now

No, there is no other day. Because when the next day comes it is today once again. Your life is made up of increments of present moments that flow together to create another present moment, and another.

Oct/30 - Nokia N95
Review Summary Nokia N95 The Nokia N95 is an innovative slider phone with a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, a GPS receiver, and HSDPA 3G data support, and dedicated music buttons. The only thing missing is a QWERTY keyboard. All of these features are packed into a relatively small phone. The N95 enlists a triple slide function - up for the numerical keypad, down for the dedicated music keys, which are, in the model we looked at, slightly hidden and rubbery to touch. The main keypad itself is easy to use, and the large 2.6" QVGA display is vibrant and easy to see. With 3D graphics, the phone has a user interface that makes it intuitive to find the features and services users want.
