Vegetarian Ideal


Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth
as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.
- Albert Einstein

Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. - Howard Zinn

COMPASSION

Affirmation of life is the spiritual act by which man ceases to live thoughtlessly and begins to devote himself to his life
with reverence in order to give it true value.

Mindfulness Meditation Tips


Mindfulness means to be aware of what is happening in the present moment.  



1. Adjust your position so that it is symmetrical, upright and open

2. Close your eyes and gently focus your attention on the space in front of them, between your eyebrows.

3. Concentrate on your breathing.  Notice the rise and fall of the abdomen on each inhalation and exhalation.

4. Open your awareness to include the sounds around you – outside and inside the room.

5. You’ll find your mind will tend to wander. That’s OK. When it does, just bring your attention back to your breath.

6. Try to sit and keep your mind calm for as long as you can.   Start with 20 minutes a day and work yourself up. The more you practice, the longer you will be able to hold this mental focus.

Mindfulness meditation involves focus   the ability to be comfortable and content with your own presence.

It’s not goal orientated, there are no distractions, nothing to keep your mind busy and nothing to keep your thoughts from wandering over to dinnertime. 

Difficulty aside, mindfulness meditation will bring about wonderful results. Plus, the more you practice, the easier it gets.
