Legalize Marijuana? Benefits Ignored by Federal Government (Infographic)

The federal governments’ prohibition of cannabis costs them (and by proxy, us) 7.7 billion dollars a year.

Children in Dire Need of Escaping the Indoors

Children in Dire Need of Escaping the Indoors

Vitamin D is widely considered to be one of the most beneficial vitamins, though sadly many parents deprive their children of it by neglecting their need for the biggest source of the vitamin – the sun.

Relaxation and Meditation Are Just as Critical to Health as Diet and Exercise

Relaxation and Meditation Are Just as Critical to Health as Diet and Exercise

You gotta relax, man. Life in 2012 means a degree of stress, for just about everyone. Our bodies and minds can take a lot of abuse, but its all too easy to get into a negative cycle, and just keep sinking. You don’t sleep well, you get up late, so you don’t eat, your blood sugar is low, so your temper is short, etc. Stress. If you need more time, more energy, or better sleep, then its worth taking the time to relax and meditate.

Lakota Wisdom: Why Native American Truths Can Heal the World

There are wise people in the world from all walks of life, from many nations and cultures. But there is one unalterable reality: No one who is truly wise is young.

Western Establishment Refuses to Admit Reality of Prohibition

Western Establishment Refuses to Admit Reality of Prohibition

The western establishment has successfully painted the legalization movement as a bunch of disgruntled hippies who just want to get high, however, like many political memes this statement offers a gross oversimplification of the real topic at hand.

Meditation Is A Knack

Meditation Is A Knack

Just be, and watch . Being is not doing, and watching is also not doing. You sit silently doing nothing, witnessing whatsoever is happening. Thoughts will be moving in your mind; your body may be feeling some tension somewhere, you may have a migraine. Just be a witness. Don’t be identified with it. Watch, be a watcher on the hills, and everything else is happening in the valley. It is a knack, not an art.
