So I turned to HEthens and Facebook friends to gather more and was blown away by the beautiful words that resulted. Here are 15 meditation mantras to explore during your next mental break: I honor the place in […]
A new revolution of ‘smart drugs’ is underway. These brain boosters promise everything from better memory to unlocking your brain’s full potential. Are these the chemical keys we have been waiting for or is the genius elixir still out there? HighExistence is up for the challenge and will test the nootropic (“turning the mind”) blend […]

Our world is changing rapidly, and some of the most exciting are being seen in the spaces in which we live together. There are some very ambitious groups around the world seeking to completely redefine how we live. These movements are extremely exciting because changing such a basic element of our society will have more far-reaching implications than most any other change.
Here are a few of examples of such movements.
Atheists are often viewed as a more self-righteous community of people. It is unfortunate because the adoption of atheistic belief is frequently driven by the desire to be the opposite of many things including judgmental and self-righteous. Sometimes in the quest to gain and share knowledge we can develop an air of arrogance. This is not exclusive to the atheist community but in this article I will offer a perspective, which is in accordance with the core concept of atheist belief, that I believe would be beneficial for all atheists to consider rather than the arrogant and narrow-minded one they have become known for which can contradict and undermine the atheist view entirely…
Google. Facebook. StumbleUpon. Amazon. Email. Skype. LOLCATZ. The last 20 years have been witness to some truly amazing innovations thanks to the internet. The introduction of the world-wide web has had more lasting effects than any other invention in history. This, of course, is something you know very well. However there are some huge implications […]
Psychedelics are the chameleons of the drug world—amenable to a variety of uses, dependent on the user’s attitude. The importance of set and setting cannot be overstated. If you use them as intoxicants, you will become intoxicated. If you want to see pretty shapes and colors and “trip out” to music, then they will act […]
Continued from Part 1 I jumped, and raised my waist to the top of the wall; on the other side was a black void. I raised my right leg to the top of the wall and rolled myself onto it, sitting at the top, on my right was only blackness, and on my left only […]

Most people only think that there is one way to sleep: Go to sleep at night for 6-8 hours, wake up in the morning, stay awake for 16-18 hours and then repeat. Actually, that is called a monophasic sleep cycle, which is only 1 of 5 major sleep cycles that have been used successfully throughout […]
Who knew that the secret to life could be summed up in two words? :)
This oh-so-simple two-word mantra can impact your life more so than any other. I’ve alluded to it in many ways across past posts but never in a direct way way as this. Plus it’s so important that even if you’ve heard it before, perhaps you need a reminder ;)
Now you know what we’re missing, and the best ways to incite REAL change. So what can you do about it? Right now?
In the grand scheme of things, not much. Sure, you could attempt to see your friends more often, make conversation with strangers and/or spend less time in faux-communities online. You could even place an ad for a roommate or two. But I believe this issue is something deeply engrained in the global consciousness, and requires more radical action in order to be truly remedied.
This is why I am extremely excited to announce a new initiative: the creation of true community on a global scale.
The bridge between science and spirituality begins with the heart. The heart is the regulator of our energetic state, working synergistically with the nervous system and the brain to bring coherence and positive emotion to life. It produces the strongest electromagnetic field in the body, one that extends all around us, allowing for energetic communication of this coherence with all of life. Thus, the heart breaks down internal and external environments and allows us access to the oneness of life…
Do you have certain habits, questions or tricks that gives your life a more positive spin? A technique that helps you understand others and yourself a bit better? There is something I want to share with you. It is something I have been doing for some time now and it is something that I and the people around me enjoy very much.

To make the following techniques effective I suggest you maximize your dream recall ability. Two weeks worth of daily dream entries in your journal would be advantageous.
You will spend one-third of your life in your bedroom. Think about it. One third of your total life spent in one room. You will rest, relax and regenerate here. You will sleep, dream, hug and have sexy time in this room. Yet, somehow, we rarely ask ourselves whether we can improve the quality of […]
Anxiety There is No Right Way to Meditate
I vowed that when I got back from my 10 day Vipassana meditative retreat in Ontario this past weekend that I would immediately write down all of my experiences. Our ten days consisted of meditating, eating, light walking and no communication or forms of entertainment to distract the mind. I was bound to write something […]
