What Solar Eclipses Can Teach Us About Being Human

The awe we experience during a total solar eclipse is very unique because it is the universe that we are experiencing. When you think about it, you are actually standing in the shadow of the moon, which is a solar object out there, and it’s the shadow that’s passing over us—that’s what the darkness is. It’s probably among the strongest awe we can feel. #solareclipse

How the Human Heart Functions as a Second Brain

Did you know that the human heart is the organ that generates the strongest electromagnetic field of any organ of the human body?

Your Brain Performs Better When It Slows Down (Video)

How to Decode The Hidden Positive Message of Your Ego

We need to find that place in our hearts to stop looking at the ego through eyes of judgment and see it through the eyes of love. Only then can we shift the energy around our ego from one of annoyance and avoidance to one of willingness to integrate what we can learn from it. #ego
