It turns out that when things get really, really cold, strange and wonderful things start to happen. Take superconductors, which allow electricity to pass through them with zero resistance, opening up all kinds of incredible possibilities for powering our world with only a fraction of the current power we use. I saw an astonishing demonstration
So maybe you’ve wondered what God is actually like? Perhaps you’ve grown up with stories handed down from generation to generation about the nature of God? I say God is not hard to find, It’s right in front of you, all the time. You just have to look anywhere really. Look at your hands or
So, you say you don’t have enough time to do the things that you want to do. In fact what you’ve done is filled your life with meaningless shit. I know. I’ve done it myself. A lot. The problem is most of the things you’ve taken on just aren’t that important. They rob you of
Sometimes you don’t have to look far for inspiration. A year ago I started to see something different on my Facebook feed. Most of the stuff on there is pretty typical, my friends posting jokes, family posting pictures of their kids or what they had for dinner last night. Then there were Nadia Aly’s posts.
I was enlightened once, but I walked away. I rarely talk about it because the past is useless. Today, as I reconnected with my writing for the first time in a few weeks of confusing distractions, I thought about that moment again. I could feel it for a second once more. What was it like?

Sometimes you just make a shift in life and you understand so much more about everything around you in an instant. You suddenly see clearly after years of being deaf and blind. When it happens, then you find yourself wanting to address all the things you’ve been avoiding up until now. At the same time,
One day I woke up and I was sick of being sick. And that one moment changed everything. Some of what I am going to tell you here will be like telling the ancient people that the world was actually round and not flat. Just come along for a little while and listen. See if
TED Talks posted this video of Job’s 2005 Stanford Commencement Speech, which takes on even more poignancy in the wake of his death. It needs no more introduction. It speaks for itself, as we all should.
How much of your life is spent wearing a mask? How many times during the day do you make decisions that you would never make if you were truly free? When someone asks you “how are you doing?” do you say “I’m fine” or “not bad” or “doing great” when you really feel horrible or
Whenever I talk about meditation most people have one or more reasons why they can’t do it. Usually they don’t have time for it, or they’ve tried it but they felt like they weren’t doing it right because they couldn’t get their mind to stop talking. I say nonsense. These are excuses, to be dropped
I’ve read a lot of spiritual books, but none like the Presence Process by Michael Brown. The bookshelves are stuffed with self-help books that claim to offer you everything from money, to power, to fame. This is not one of them. All these false methods lead to the same place inevitably, which is right back
