Do Spirituality & Religion Increase Overall Happiness?

Let’s examine briefly the fundamental difference between religion and spirituality. Religion is defined as a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe. Most religious involvement usually involves devotional and ritual observances and often prescribes a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.

“Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need.” Matthew 5:3

Spirituality refers to our ultimate reality, the human experience or understanding of the world. It is the innermost path which enables a person to discover the true essence of his or her being. Religion is based around order and usually revolves around an establishment such as the church, synagogue, or mosque, along with some external guidelines. Spirituality is based on the individual’s internal processes. It is aligned with how it affects the human spirit or soul.

“Cosmic Consciousness” Explained

“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…” – Hermes Trismagistus

Cosmic consciousness is a term that was first coined in 1901 in the book Cosmic Consciousness: A Study in the Evolution of the Human Mind by Richard Maurice Bucke, and became popularized through the teachings of Deepak Chopra.

It is defined as:

“Cosmic consciousness, a consciousness of the life and order of the universe which is possessed by few men at present.

It is a further stage of human evolution which will be reached by all humanity in the future.”

Some may also refer to this concept as Pantheism, which is the belief “that the universe (or nature as the totality of everything) is identical with divinity, or that everything composes an all-encompassing, immanent God.”

While the current state of consciousness that dictates our reality still tends to anthropomorphize God in an attempt to relate to “the-all-that-is,” it is through digging deeper and connecting the dots of what we see and what we cannot “see” that we can find what God may truly mean.

How Is This Possible? Scientists Observe ONE Particle Exist In MULTIPLE States

“Matter”: it’s what atoms and molecules are made up of. On the physical material level, it’s what all physical objects are made up of; it is everything that surrounds us and anything that has mass and volume. When scientists attempt to gain a better understanding of the nature of our reality, matter is what they look to. However, when scientists observe matter at the smallest possible level, they are left with more questions than answers. This is thanks to the fact that a tiny piece of matter, like a photon, or an electron, can exist in multiple possible states (as a “wave”) even though it is one single particle… which makes absolutely no sense.

“We choose to examine a phenomenon which is impossible, absolutely impossible, to explain in any classical way, and which has in it the heart of quantum mechanics. In reality, it contains the only mystery.” (1) Richard Feynman, a Nobel laureate of the twentieth century

A Long Time President Opens Up About His Experience With Extraterrestrials

Not long ago, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, longtime president of the Republic of Kalmykia (1993 – 2010) and President of the World Chess Federation, opened up about his experience with extraterrestrial beings. Why is there a picture of him meeting the Dalai Lama included? It seemed fitting, because they both share very similar views when it comes to contact with intelligent life from another world. They have also been friends for quite some time. (source)

Ilyumzhinov expressed his belief that extraterrestrials are people like us (humanoid), beings with the same mind and vision. He claimed to have talked to them and went on to state that:

“I understand that we are not alone in this whole world (universe), we are not unique.”  (straight from the source)(at 2:34 a clip of him speaking)

He also went on to say that aliens are “kind fellows,” but they are not ready to meet humans.

The Benefits Of Doing Nothing

We live in a society where sitting in stillness and silence, void of any stimuli, is seen as doing nothing – a view polluted with a negative stigma, with the implication that doing nothing is synonymous with being nothing. However, this could not be further from the truth. To sit in stillness is not actually to do “nothing,” in the sense that time is wasted and there is no gain. It is, in reality, closer to doing everything, as being in touch with our inner stillness, or consciousness, has a powerful ripple effect on every single aspect of our lives in one way or another. Of course, failing to wake up to this truth also effects everything, but only by ensuring that what we consider to be “everything” in our lives has little substance and limited depth.

Full Moon in Sagittarius: Synthesizing Our Thoughts With A “Big Picture” Awareness

We will be having a Full Moon in Sagittarius on Tuesday, June 2nd at 4:19pm Universal Time (Click here to see your time zone). Full Moons are the peak of the Moon cycle, as this is when the light of the Sun completely fills the Moon and marks the beginning of the following 2 weeks when the light starts fading. This is known as the “waning phase.” Symbolically, because this is when the light begins to recede, this represents a time of “release.” Full Moons are generally the most intense time of the Moon cycle and are also a very lively time.

The events and circumstances that occur in our lives around the Full Moon usually challenge us. The Sun and Moon are opposite each other, so whatever signs they are in will most strongly influence the themes. Just like the New Moon, you can also have intentions for the Full Moon, with the difference being that for this phase your intentions should be associated with some sort of release, but only if need be...

Remember The Device Designed To Clean The Worlds Oceans? It Will Be Deployed In 2016

Back in 2013, we reported on the story of 19 year old Byron Slat, who had developed a device with the capacity to remove 7,250,000 tonnes of plastic and garbage from the worlds oceans in just 5 years. Byron, now 21 and CEO of The Ocean Cleanup Project, has just announced that his project will come into fruition by 2016. The announcement was made during Asia’s largest technology conference, Seoul Digital Forum, in South Korea.

His system spans 2,000 meters, which means it will become the longest floating structure to ever be deployed into the ocean. Launching this device represents a huge milestone in The Ocean Cleanup’s mission to clean and rid the world’s oceans of plastic pollution.

Deployment off the coast of Tsushima, an island located between Japan and South Korea, is currently being researched. The device will be operational for around two years before it reaches the shores of Tsushima Island, where researchers are now looking into whether or not the plastic that is caught can be used as an alternative energy source.

Why The Netherlands Just Banned Monsanto’s Glyphosate-Based Herbicides

The Netherlands has just become the latest country, following Russia, Mexico, and many others, to say no to Monsanto. The sale and use of glyphosate-based herbicides (the most commonly used herbicides in the world) has just been banned for non-commercial use in the country, effective later this year. This means that people will no longer be able to spray RoundUp on their lawns and gardens and will instead have to find another (hopefully more natural) means of pest control.

This is definitely a step in the right direction, though it’s unlikely you’ll be hearing about it through mainstream Western media. Think about that for a moment.

The move comes as no surprise, considering that the number of countries around the world who are choosing to ban this product is growing at an exponential rate. Bans and restrictions are being implemented due to the fact that glyphosate (the main ingredient in RoundUp) has been directly linked to several major health issues, including: birth defects, nervous system damage, Alzheimers, Parkinson’s, various forms of cancer, and kidney failure...

Live Off The Grid Anywhere In This Wind And Solar Powered Capsule

The Ecocapsule is a completely off grid self-sustaining home that you can take with you practically anywhere you would like. On the company’s website, a short but sweet phrase is used to describe the pod: “Dwelling with the spirit of freedom.” It has a very compact egg shaped design, measuring just 4.5 meters in length, 2.4 meters in width, and 2.5 meters in height. It weighs around 1500 kg and can be easily transported. The capsule includes a bed, toilet, and shower, along with a kitchenette that can be used to prepare hot meals.

Off The Grid

The most important aspect of the eco capsule is that it requires no external power source, relying solely on its built-in wind turbine and solar panels for all its energy needs. A high capacity battery ensures that you will have enough energy stored away for times of decreased sunlight and minimal wind activity. The capsule also collects and filters rainwater and dew that is later used for drinking and showering. This is what makes it “off-grid,” outside sources of water and electricity are not needed, so as mentioned before, this capsule can be taken to a wide variety of places. Imagine camping with this thing!
