Movie differences

Has anyone here noticed a change in their movie preference since becoming “enlightened?” It seems that the movies that all my friends like just dont do it for me. Lately it seems like I...

Memorizing, Not Thinking, in schools

So today in one of my classes, a professor told our class something that somewhat restored my faith in education. He told us “the purpose of school and college is to learn how to think.”...

I dont know why, but recently I have become extremely apathetic towards just about everything. It’s not that I’m not happy or anything. For instance, I used to love sports, however now Im...

Chasing your dreams

I dont know who here knows who MIchael Smith is from ESPN but he tweeted this the other day and it struck me deeply. “We tell kids to follow their dreams but we determine which are worth...

Emotional

I have been this way for a while, but just now noticed it. I feel like lately I have noticed how emotional I really am. It seems like no matter what, I get very invested (I dont know if thats the...

Feeling Like Shit and Feeling Amazing at the same time

The Field

Has anyone ever read the book “the field: quest for the secret force of the universe?” Im reading it now and its pretty interesting. It puts a scientific twist on the idea of unity and...

Is "Generation Y" the new hippy?

Pretty interesting article I read and couldn’t help but think how accurate it was. Basically says the Generation Y kids are the new revolutionaries focused in change...

The Moses Code

Has anyone ever heard of or watched the video of the Moses Code? It kind of piggybacks off the Law of Attraction but somewhat relates it back to religious principals to dispel some of the things that...
