3 Ways to Help Children Lead a More Mindful Existence

“Parenting is one of the most challenging, demanding, and stressful jobs on the planet. It is also one of the most important, for how it is done influences in great measure the heart and soul and consciousness of the next generation, their experience of meaning and connection, their repertoire of life skills, and their deepest feelings about themselves and their possible place in a rapidly changing world.” ~ Jon and Myla Kabat-Zinn, Everyday Blessings: The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting

What I see time and time again, in parenting magazines and articles discussing whether time-outs on the naughty step are setting healthy boundaries or entirely damaging our un-spoilt little creatures of love. Or perhaps debating over how best to deal with a tantrum – to smother them in hugs and kisses or throw the cereal off the table and join in – is a desperate grab in the dark for what the new generation, or next wave of parenting techniques will look like.

Like any other meditative advice, the best way I’ve found, (apart from living it and staying as present as possible), is to keep it simple. One or two phrases are more than enough to remember in a day full of biscuit baking and leafing through the old favourites on the book shelf, and so I’ve shrunk it down into a few simple phrases… Zen style.

How to Relate to Non-Spiritual People After Your Spiritual Awakening

So you've gone through a spiritual awakening. It might have been a quick process or a long one, easy or traumatic, you may have had to partially or fully reinvent your sense of self because both your perception of reality and your ego were stripped bare. One thing however is a very common question among those who've gone through a spiritual awakening, and that's 'How do I deal with non-spiritual people?'

You might feel like a different person. Your perceptions have shifted. Perhaps you view physical death, physical reality, the nature of existence, the power of consciousness and the universe completely differently. You're on a path of intense learning and experience and it's overwhelming at times. You may have realized that the life we lead is largely controlled by unseen human forces for social, economic and political reasons. You might have seen an apparition, had a near-death or out-of-body experience, you could have benefited from meditation, received contact from a loved one or spirit guide on the other side, or some other profound experience.

The Magic of Synchronicity

Amy L. Lansky, PhD, Contributor
Waking Times

You know the feeling. You’re sitting in a café or standing in line at the supermarket, and suddenly you meet a complete stranger who, for some inexplicable reason, seems like an old friend. You are on the same “wavelength.” Your energies mesh, and afterward, you walk away feeling invigorated and optimistic – perhaps even younger! That’s the power of similar vibrations.

Or consider another common experience: the uplifting effect of being part of a group focused on an exciting endeavor – a community project, a thrilling sporting event or concert, or perhaps praying or meditating together. Entering into a collective experience with others often seems to magnify its effects, because everybody is literally “vibrating” in the same way. Just as two violins playing the same note create a resonance that reinforces and amplifies the sound, the effect of two or more people getting onto the “same wavelength” can create an enhanced experience that exceeds the sum of its parts.

Multiple False Flag Set Up: “Perfect Storm” on 4th – Says Government

Zen Gardner, Guest
Waking Times

They’re drooling over this one. All the scenarios they’ve been working on converge very neatly if they pull what they’re threatening “might happen” this Fourth of July weekend.

If you listen to these two so-called warnings by these insiders you’ll hear the same talking points carefully repeated but all based on vague suppositions and strangely weak and no doubt made up facts and statistics. The “ex” CIA guy goes so far as to say he won’t be surprised if next week they’ll be sitting there talking about an attack that happened over the weekend, although they both reference “multiple attacks”, a type of false flag spree we’ve long discussed as a potential tool to ramp up the police state.

Last Chance Saloon – Gonna Step Up?

By Zen Gardner
Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

This is it, folks. Last call. Gonna step up or not? This is the final fight, perhaps the last for humanity. What are you going to do? Observe, wait, watch, criticize or just ignore it all? That’s what most people have been doing – why break the streak? That’s what humanity appears to love to do.

The amount of people cratered in their own selfish cyclical lives is repugnant. The lack of response to our clearly contrived and very dangerous condition is anathema to me. It’s not that I do not understand it, it is simply unacceptable.

How can human beings watch while their world is caving in on them by clearly ill-intentioned forces? Do we really think there’s nothing we can do?

Daily Message ~ Saturday July 4, 2015

Dear Ones, the enlightenment process is more about being than doing. More about flowing than forcing. More about joy than struggle. More about embracing the light than fighting the darkness. It is about discovering the truth of who you are, and who you have always been. It is about seeing love as the great expander, magnifier, healer, unifier and connector. It is about being a willing dance partner with a universe that has always been there to support and assist you in this magnificent process of coming home to yourself. ~Archangel Gabriel

Persistence is Vital in Life; Here’s Why

As we continue to understand more and more about the current state of our world, we experience the urge to dissociate with such an unaligned design of society.

It’s easy to loose one’s self is the dense heaviness of the current state of our planet.

We are here to fully understand the earth experience and to help guide and raise the frequency of this planet, not to keep our light and awareness isolated.

It is not about disconnecting and suffering through the Human experience, its about understanding the fundamental connection between us all.

Connect to yourself and all of creation.

The key is letting go and being transparent, allow your highest intentions and most vulnerably real self to be revealed through you.

When experiencing something new or intense, try not to analyze it or give it any sort of meaning. Just go with the flow and understand there will be time to analyze the experience after you have had it; so stay present.

The Pure Glory of Being

God said:

The Truth of You bears no resemblance to the harried person you disguise yourself in. You are not this pressured person you think you are.

Sometimes you feel frazzled. However, frazzle is like a hot spell in the weather. There can be a hot spell in the weather. You can experience a heat wave, yet you are not the heat wave. You can have a hot spell, yet a hot spell is outside you. Frazzle is an addendum to the apparent appearance that is not you at all. If you were not hiding out in a body, you would have no clue as to what stress and strain could be. We come back again and again that you are not your body. Your body has temperature. The Essence of You does not. The Essence of You has nothing to do with up or down or any apparent change.

Consider stress like a sauna your body steps into. You are not a sauna. Your body enters a sauna, and your body steps out of a sauna. You can open the door, and you step out the same way you stepped in.

You, outlined in the form of a body, can kick up a storm, yet you can never be a storm. You can erupt like a volcano. You can be called a volcano, yet you are not a volcano. Your body can bear witness to a volcano. Your body can erupt, yet the essence of you remains Pure Being.

You can be called a spit-fire, yet Who You Are bears no resemblance to a spit-fire.

GFP Newsletter - 7/3/2015

The simple man will be simple. He will live moment to moment with no idea how to live; he will not have any philosophy of life. He will trust in his intelligence. What is the need of having a philosophy?

Why should one have a philosophy? - so that it can guide you. It means if you are stupid you need a philosophy of life so that it can guide you. If you are intelligent you don't need any philosophy of life. Intelligence is enough unto itself, a light unto itself.

A blind man asks for guidance: "Where is the door? In what direction should I move? Where is the turn?" Only the blind man prepares himself before he takes any move. The man who has eyes simply moves because he can see. When the door comes he will know and when the turn comes he will know. He can trust in his eyes.

And that is the case with the inner world too. Trust in your intelligence, don't trust in philosophies of life; otherwise you will remain stupid. The major part of humanity has remained unintelligent because it has trusted in philosophies of life - Christian, Hindu, Mohammedan.

Again, something of very great importance to be remembered: each child is born intelligent.

The Aspirin Alternative Your Doctor Never Told You About

AspirinSayer Ji, Green Med Info
Waking Times

Millions use aspirin daily without realizing its true dangers. The good news is that there is a natural alternative which preliminary research indicates is safer and more effective.

Aspirin is taken faithfully by millions every day as a preventive measure against heart attack, often without the user having any awareness of the serious health risks associated with it, some potentially fatal. You can view over 60 adverse effects of aspirin on the’s aspirin research page if you have any doubts about how serious a concern this is.

Aspirin’s widespread popularity is based on its much-touted blood-thinning properties. But there are safer, surprisingly more effective and far more natural alternatives on the market today.

For instance, pycnogenol, a branded form of an extract of French maritime pine bark, can be found on the shelves of thousands of health food stores around the country, and unique among natural products, has a broad base of human clinical research supporting its use for a wide variety of health conditions. You can view’s pycnogenol research page take a look at the published research.

Moreover, in cross comparison tests, pycnogenol has been found at least as effective as aspirin in preventing blood from clotting, but at significantly lower doses and with a superior safety profile.

Five Zen Parables To Trip Up The Mind

“Great Teachers can lead you to the doors of understanding, but it is up to you to enter.” – Lao Tzu

The Monks and The Woman

Two celibate monks, forbidden from even glancing at a woman were traveling to a monastery when they came to a river. The river was very flooded and was impossible to cross without getting wet. They had just decided which would be the shallowest path across the river when the monks noticed a woman a little way along on the same bank, also trying to find a way to cross.

Since the woman was having great trouble and being the gentleman that he was, one of the monks offered to carry her across on his shoulders. She accepted and they began to wade across; they reached the other side where he set her down, she thanked him and went her own way. The monks carried on in silence. ‘Why did you carry that woman across the river?’ The monk asked the other in dismay, ‘We are not allowed to talk to, touch… even let our eyes fall upon a woman let alone carry her! What were you thinking?’ The other monk listened with a smile upon his lips, then softly said. ‘But I put her down when I crossed the river. Why are you still carrying her?’

17 Ways to Transform Negativity into Positivity and Hope

HJ: Our perception dictates whether we choose to see negativity or positivity—meaning that it is ultimately a choice.  Every single situation can be viewed in a positive or negative manner and both are equally valid.  Evidence can always be found to support each position.  So which are you choosing?  Something uplifting and expansive or contractive and negative?

Empathetic People Have Physical Differences in Their Brains, Study Finds

New research has opened up questions that it may be possible to lose your empathetic ability over time or that it could even possibly be increased through training. These questions were raised because scientists have recently discovered they can physically see people’s empathetic ability on brain scans. This research has added a great deal of information to the neuroscience field relating to emotion and has opened up questions with regards to two areas of empathy in particular: affective empathy and cognitive empathy. Compared to people who have a logical reaction to people’s emotions, empathetic people, or those with a strong emotional reaction to others, are found to have denser grey matter in specific areas of the brain.

Researchers at Monash University [1] hypothesised that through looking at images of the brain, they would be able to predict where individuals scored on the affective/cognitive empathy scale based on their neurological structures. A co-author of the study, Robert Eres, explained [2] that “people who are high on affective empathy are often those who get quite fearful when watching a scary movie, or start crying during a sad scene. Those who have a high cognitive empathy are those who are more rational, for example, a clinical psychologist counselling a client.”

6 Pieces Of Buddhist Wisdom That Will Transform Your Life

1. Live a life filled with compassion and positive action.

Buddha wasn’t the only religious leader who wanted you to be compassion – you can find that teaching in others like Jesus Christ and Mohammed. It isn’t just beneficial to the world, it’s beneficial to your own spirit too. Compassion is critical to finding peace within yourself and taking care of yourself. And it may sound a little bit corny, but we all do better when we all do better.

2. Pay attention.

It annoys me to hear people to prattle on about “waking up” because it’s usually said in such a condescending way, but there is some validity to the idea of seeing the world for what it truly is. It requires mindfulness, that is paying attention to the little things around you. Many people don’t ever learn how to do that. So wake up, live mindfully, pay attention – whatever you want to call it. Just do it.

3. Be the change...
