How do you respond to criticism?  Do you find yourself trying to justify your actions, even if you know you’re not entirely right?

It’s not enough not to respond with diffidence, a sour face, or resentment. We need to value honest reproach and even love it. Why? Because self-love often prevents us from seeing ourselves objectively. Some constructive criticism is often just what we need to recognize where we really are and help us see how we can improve.

Now obviously, if you are the one giving the criticism, you need to think long and hard about why and how you speak. But when criticism comes along, let’s be ready to take it in the right way.

How does criticism make you feel? Have you ever used it to spur growth?

Happy Pi Day, Albert Einstein!

Einstein Pi Day

Today in History: Albert Einstein Was Born on “Pi Day” (3.14), 1879
On March 14, 1879 — 136 years ago today — Albert Einstein, one of the most influential theoretical physicists in history, was born. Einstein’s theories of special and general relativity radically transformed humans’ view of the universe; and his work in particle and energy theory contributed to the development of quantum mechanics. In 1905, at the age of 26, Einstein earned a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Zurich while he worked at the Swiss patent office. During the year (1905), Einstein wrote 5 pioneering papers that would have a profound effect on man’s understanding of the universe:
(1) In a ground-breaking paper entitled, “On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Lights,” Einstein proposed that light was composed of individual quanta, “photon” particles, which could collectively behave as a wave. This proposal was instrumental in the formation of quantum theory. In formulating this proposal, Einstein studied the photoelectric effect — some solids emit electrically charged particles when light hits them. His observations about the photoelectric effect eventually won him a Nobel Prize in Physics (1921).
(2) In another paper helping to prove the existence of atoms, Einstein put forth a displacement formula to calculate the size and atoms in a given space.
(3) In yet another 1905 paper, Einstein explained in precise detail, via a mathematical expression, the constant erratic motion of particles suspended in a fluid (a phenomenon named “Brownian motion,” after the initial observer, botanist Robert Brown). Einstein explanations in papers (2) and (3) provided conclusive evidence for the existence of atoms.
(4) Einstein’s 4th pioneering paper of 1905 was on the subject of “special relativity” theory — time and space are not independent entities, but are dependent on the motion of the observer, and the speed of light is a constant to all observers everywhere.
(5) In a final 1905 paper, Einstein explored the mathematics of his special relativity theory and concluded that mass and energy were equivalent and could be determined by the formula, E=mc2.
Also, on this day, math lovers celebrate “Pi Day.” Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, and it is constant for all circles regardless of their size. For any circle, it turns out that the exact ratio can never be determined (even though the ratio is the same for all circles) because no recognizable digital pattern emerges when any circle’s circumference is divided by its diameter. Computer scientists using supercomputers have calculated billions of divisional digits, and it appears there is no repeatable pattern of numbers into infinity. But the number always starts out: 3.1415 (or today’s date — a once in a hundred year occurrence — and Einstein’s birthday, every year, 3.14!).

Theosophy ~ LIGHT, LOVE AND HOPE – I … by Raghavan Iyer




   Light is the first begotten, and the first emanation of the Supreme, and Light is Life, says the Evangelist and the Kabalist. Both are electricity – the life principle, the anima mundi, pervading the universe, the electric vivifier of all things. Light is the great Protean magician, and under the divine will of the architect, or rather the architects, the “Builders” (called One collectively), its multifarious, omnipotent waves gave birth to every form as well as to every living being. From its swelling electric bosom, spring matter and spirit. Within its beams lie the beginnings of all physical and chemical action, and of all cosmic and spiritual phenomena; it vitalizes and disorganizes; it gives life and produces death, and from its primordial point gradually emerged into existence the myriads of worlds, visible and invisible celestial bodies.

The Secret Doctrine, i 579


The metaphysical mantram “Light is Life and both are electricity” intimates a profound insight that is realized only at the highest levels of meditation. Empty the mind of all objects and subjects, all contrasts and contours, in a world of names and forms and colours, and one can plunge into absolute Divine Darkness. Once in this realm of pure potential, one may apprehend the hidden noumenon of matter, that ultimate substance or primordial substratum which is the sum-total of all possible objects of perception by all possible beings. At the same time, one may apprehend Spirit as the totality of all the possible expressions, manifestations and radiations of one central divine energy or Light. In that Divine Darkness, the realm of boundless potential where no one thing exists, love is like the Light that is hidden in the Darkness. That Light is the origin of all that is latent, of all that will ever emerge and persist, all that will depart from form and yet remain as immaculate rays.

This primordial realm of potential Light and potential Life is also the realm of potential energy. In this pregenetic realm, wherein there is no manifestation, one may apprehend a wholly potential energy which does not produce any interaction between the latent Spirit and noumenal matter. This is not electricity in any manifest sense, nor any force that can be construed in terms of ordinary language or common sense-perception; it is a primordial current. Even the most abstract conceptions of pure science cannot reach this realm, wherein there is a cosmic electrical vibration so fundamental and all-pervasive that it cannot be localized or characterized in any particular way. Out of this Divine Darkness – out of this potential Light, latent Life and hidden energy – there is a coming into manifestation. There is a process of radiation and emanation in which myriad sparks fly. There is a coalescence of the initial primordial ray of light-energy and the latent life-currents which releases pulsations, radiations and currents that flow forth in every direction.

At this stage of the incipient cosmos, Gupta Vidya affirms the presence of great beings, great minds and hearts, great souls perfected in prior periods of evolution. Remaining awake during the long night of non-manifestation – yet having no particular object of reference and no particular conception in the state of Mahapralaya – they abided in a state of vigilant, ceaseless, harmonious contemplation of all that was potential. These beings emerge with the burgeoning of primordial Light and Life, the primal reverberation of divine energy throughout the glassy essence of space. They become the focussing instrument in what then comes to be known as Universal Mind or Mahat. They become the living lens through which all that is latent within the night of non-manifestation is stirred into active life. These perfected beings, who are later mythified in all the religions of the world as Dhyani Buddhas, Archangels, Lords of Light, become self-conscious agents for the direction and focussing into an emerging world of primary particularizations of an essence that is otherwise universal, purely potential and entirely homogeneous. For the sake of meditation, they may be thought of as shooting out rays of colour and emitting sounds within transcendental musical scales. One may then, in turn, think of them as belonging to seven classes, each corresponding to a subliminal note or a colour. Each of them corresponds to a particular number or degree of differentiation, and they all work in unison. They may be imagined as having their own differentiated notes, colours and numbers but also as uniting and synthesizing the multiple potencies of the manifested Logos. In that ontogenetically prior state, just before manifestation, there is a tremendous subtle field, a pre-cosmic electrical energy that is sometimes called Daiviprakriti – the noumenal Light of the Logos.

In the world of visible manifestation, the phenomena which are identified as electricity and magnetism, light and heat, are observable effects of this primary Logoic radiation. Gigantic and titanic as they are, they are nonetheless nothing but shadows of supersensuous matter in motion on a noumenal plane prior to the realm of phenomena. The study of light-energy in manifestation involves complex curves and relationships and requires the use of many categories and instruments. This is the realm of diffraction and diffusion, of reflection and refraction, wherein there are complex possibilities owing to the interference and overlapping of waves upon waves of light-energy. It is simultaneously the realm of photons, particles of light-energy travelling at an incredible speed, such that light from the moon arrives at the earth within a second. The notion of light as a complex, though virtually instantaneous, agency having an impact at every level of the cosmos stirs the heart long before it can be truly grasped by the mind. The heart understands the vital significance of life because it resonates to that which is primordial, all-pervasive and instantaneous. Within every human heart there burns a fire of light-wisdom and love-compassion, Prajna and Mahakaruna. This spark of the One Fire flickers fitfully in the neophyte at first, but it can be stoked into a powerful flame which burns vigorously, steadily and ceaselessly. In its fullness it directs and guides individuals in the expansive and wise application of the boundless energy flowing from the fathomless love-compassion and light-wisdom within the spiritual heart. The monadic heart of every human being is an exact mirror of the heart of the cosmos, that swelling electric bosom from which the dual stream of spirit-matter emerges.


   The Sixth principle in Man (Buddhi, the Divine Soul) though a mere breath, in our conceptions, is still something material when compared with divine “Spirit” (Atma) of which it is the carrier or vehicle. Fohat, in his capacity of DIVINE LOVE(Eros), the electric Power of affinity and sympathy, is shown allegorically as trying to bring the pure Spirit, the Ray inseparable from the ONE absolute, into union with the Soul, the two constituting in Man the MONAD, and in Nature the first link between the ever unconditioned and the manifested.

The Secret Doctrine, i 119


The presence of this divine Light, Fire and Flame within the secret heart means that every human being is capable of seeing and illuminating a much vaster sphere of existence than he or she is typically prepared to inhabit self-consciously. Similarly, every single human being has a much richer and more profound capacity for effortless love than he or she imagines, love that is spontaneous and selfless, asking nothing and willing to give freely, graciously and generously to all. Yet little of that immense love and light-energy has a chance to come forth in a world of masks and shadows, a world of lies and fears and personal loneliness. Such is the predicament of humanity. Yet this same orphaned humanity, which has barely begun to draw upon a minute fraction of its fathomless boundless potential, can do so if it seeks to sustain a conception of existence that goes beyond all habitual divisions and dichotomies. One must transcend distinctions such as youth and old age, social roles and external labels. Even though the mind has become blunted and the heart tainted, one must unlearn all stifling habits and become able to withdraw the mind and heart from false and fleeting allegiances. Only so can one restore plasticity and resilience to the mind and heart.

In diverse societies at different times in recorded history, seekers have tried to meet this challenge by undertaking systematic monastic discipline. They have tried to be helpful to each other and to bind themselves by self-chosen and inexorable rules, vows and pledges. Through a repeated reinforcement of those fundamental resolves, they have sought to develop a way of life aimed at spiritual self-regeneration. Yet in spite of this, again and again in history these monastic institutions, having flourished for a time, invariably degenerated. The vital impulse went out of them and people came to be caught up merely in imitation, in game-playing and in ritual, hollow mimetics. The lesson of this repetitive pattern is that no amount of regimentation on the outside can work unless it is matched by sufficient concentration and continuity of ideation through meditation from within. One cannot force another human being to become a man or woman of meditation. A human being has to sustain a desire to do this which is sufficiently strong to permit him or her to see through the masquerade of that which is false and deceptive in this world.

If there was ever a year to commemorate Pi Day in a big way, this is it. The date of this Saturday—3/14/15—gives us not just the first three digits (as in most years) but the first five digits of pi, the famous irrational number 3.14159265359… that expresses the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.

For an extra thrill, be sure to observe Pi Day on 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 (A.M. and/or P.M.!), which will give you a full 10 digits of pi—an occurrence that will not roll around for another century. (Of course, the specialness of this year really only works in the U.S. and other places that commonly put the month before the day, rather than in Europe, say, where they would note the date as 14/3/15.) And if this Saturday is not already special enough, it is also Albert Einstein’s birthday, giving math and science enthusiasts even more reason to revel.


Pi fans can celebrate this weekend with a wealth of math- (and baked goods–) related opportunities. Traditionalists will of course bake pies, both because of the pun and because of their circular nature (not to mention their tastiness). For the sugar-averse, pizzas have the right shape, and the right first two letters as well.

Science museums around the country are also planning live events. The National Museum of Mathematics in New York City, for example, will gather people in Madison Square Park to light up a circle around the central fountain and compare its circumference with the distance across it—accompanied by free hot chocolate and pie. Other festivities are being held at Exploratorium in San Francisco, the Air Force Research Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio, Princeton University (which is having a pie-eating contest, among other activities) and the National Cryptologic Museum near Washington, D.C., among many more.

If you bake a pie, eat a pizza or party with other pi fans, please send us a picture and description of how you observed the Pi Day of the Century for a gallery we plan to post next week.

Recipe ~ Raw Vegan Peppermint Oreos Dipped in Dark Chocolate

by Chef Emily von Euw ~ Click here for complete recipe


Chewy raw chocolate dipped “oreo” cookies sandwiching a luscious, peppermint-spiked, vanilla-enhanced coconut cream filling.

Gather up those ingredients, you’ll definitely want to make this recipe stat.

(And note the link to the recipe about making your own Raw Vegan Chocolate … wow!)

Recipe ~ Chewy Chocolate Avocado Cookies


Possibly The Healthiest Cookie In The World!

Yes, there is such a thing as “healthy cookies”! And these do not contain any artificial sweeteners added, so be careful.

Instead of butter, for these chocolate cookies you need avocado. Sounds crazy, right? But, these cookies are organic and super-healthy. Avocados have rich and soft texture, and they are an ideal substitute for unhealthy butter. Actually, you will not taste it, so do not panic.

Avocados are an amazing source of healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. And, once again, when all the ingredients combine together, you will not taste the avocado at all.

Instead of regular, refined sugar, these chocolate avocado cookies are sweetened with honey, and you do not need any white flour at all. These cookies are super-delicious and just perfect!


2 ounces organic unsweetened chocolate (melt it in 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil)
1/2 organic avocado
2 tbsp unsalted organic almond butter
1/4 cup honey
1 organic egg and 1 egg white
2 tbsp organic cocoa powder
1 1/2 tbsp organic almond flour

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. Use a food processor or high-speed blender, and puree the avocado until smooth.

3. Add all the ingredients, one at a time, and pulse until everything combines well.

4. Keep the batter in your fridge for an hour.

5. Fill a pastry bag, or whatever you prefer using, and pipe the batter onto a cookie sheet. You can do the same by forming the cookies with a spoon.

6. Bake your cookies for 15-17 minutes.

7. Let them cool for at least 5 minutes before serving.

Homemade Mushroom Ravioli Three Ways With Creamy Garlic White Wine Sauce

Cook Plant Meditate


This recipe is one of my daughter’s favorite Italian dishes – when we go out she always requests mushroom ravioli. Last night she really wanted me to make it at home for dinner. I hadn’t made them before but why not? Let’s give it a try! I make a lot of ravioli but I’d not yet tried these. They were awesome. There wasn’t a single ravioli left, which is a pretty good compliment, considering I’d made a double batch.

I mostly had to guess on ingredients and technique but the net result was awesome.

I also complimented the ravioli with a white wine cream sauce. As luck would have it, I had a few partial bottles gifted to me by Reggie, after Pig-a-Palooza. Even luckier is that we had to have a little taste test between the three varietals to see which flavor would complement the mushroom…

Electric StormAt this time move forward with no prejudice or hidden agenda. Listen to the voice of the ego that has prejudice and judgment and change its words to positive thought and intention. This creates openness, which is the wordless, gentle joy of what the teaching is in this translated text.
Thoughts have great influence.
Correct thoughts free of prejudice
Bring a bountiful outcome.
 Negative thoughts will undo
The good you have accomplished.
Change your way of thinking.
No Blame, no guilt, no shame
Only change, and change is like a holiday
Exerting influence can be a tricky business. Thoughts and actions that attempt to manipulate or gain power over others leave nothing but hate and animosity in their tracks and will not achieve your goals. Look to your motives in exerting influence. When you are confident that you are coming from your highest good, for the good of all, you will find that your influence, though apparently invisible, is as powerful as the wind that stirs the waters.

Be The Change … Go With The Flow


Though it appears that associates, old stale influences of family, church and state or your lack of comprehension in relationships may be blocking your progress; they will soon be moved toward your favor. This is assured. You can achieve this gently and without words. It will be done by means of the invisible forces of your intent with the energy of compassion, gratitude, kindness and joyfulness. Look for and embrace your passion … be it for the Lilies in the field, or for the love that is yours to embrace. Open your eyes along with your heart … it is there before you … move from loneliness to the intention of love … and you will be … that is, you will simply be.

Your heart knows the truth.
Limit your words;
They have no effect.
Your actions and thoughts
Are benefits of all and for the greater good.

To correctly have influence with others in your tribe, walk a mile in their moccasins. This will allow you to know their position and their thoughts. This is the rightness of empathy. With this knowing you access your intuition, which will counsel you on correct thoughts and actions. This is the way: The way of compassion, this is Tao.

Health ~ Your Acne Reveals Your Body Health

In Chinese medicine, it is believed that the acne on your face are associated with certain health problem in different part of the body.

For example, acne in the upper cheek area indicate a problem in the lungs and respiratory system, and smoking is one of the root causes for this problem. This means that you should just link the location of your acne and determine which organ could possibly need attention or is affected by a disease.

How To Clean Up The Pineal Gland In 7 Easy Steps

Pineal Gland DETOX 2


Those that use this medicine go into a period of “work” where issues come into awareness and can be healed with the insights that come from DMT consciousness. The advantage of cleaning up our pineal gland so it makes its own DMT is that we can be in a continuous state of spiritual “work” and we are spared the purgative effects of drinking the ayahuasca.  Thus we no longer need any medicines as an adjunct to our spiritual lives. DMT is a totally natural substance that the human body will manufacture and distribute when it is in a healed state. Thus it would appear human beings were intended to be visionary beings and be able to tap into the information in other dimensions. This dimensional perception transcends the ego and rapidly heals our sufferings, conflicts and thus karmas. Here are some basics for pineal detox:

1. Mercury – this is really bad for the pineal gland. It’s poison. Don’t let this get into your body. Mercury tooth fillings are pineal toxins. Have them removed. All medical vaccines are also mercury tainted. Thimersal (a vaccine preservative) is methyl mercury and is very difficult to get out of the brain once it’s in there. Avoid eating fish and bottom feeders such as shrimps and prawns. Tuna and dolphin meat is particularly bad for mercury – the bigger the fish the higher the concentration of mercury in its body tissue. Eco light bulbs – if one is smashed mercury vapour is released into the room and inhaled. Avoid at all costs breaking one indoors. Mercury can be removed from the body by the daily use of chlorella, wheatgrass and spirulina. Cilantro herb taken daily can help remove mercury from brain tissue.

2. Fluoride – in toothpastes and tap water. It’s another heavy duty poison. Avoid it at all costs. It calcifies the pineal tissue and basically shuts the gland down.

3. Organic foods – some pesticides are pineal toxins. Organic healthy food with a high ratio of raw is supportive to pineal detox. Meat is not helpful either. Some people who channel seem to not be affected but for many the toxicity and density of meat will pose challenges and we want to make the work easy if we can.

4. Alcohol + smoking – Naturally these need to go along with the emotional attachments to using them (usually boils down to self worth issues or unresolved trauma).

5. Heart Healing – raises the overall vibration of the being and heals fear – a useful advantage for when we start seeing other dimensions.

6. Other toxins – if something is toxic do not put it in your body. If you can’t say it’s name, is most likely bad. Toxins include artificial sweeteners (aspartame K) , refined sugar, phylenanine (in squashes), E numbers beginning with 1, deodorants, cleaning chemicals, dental mouthwashes (saltwater is suffice) and air fresheners.

7. Raw chocolate – Raw cacao is a pineal gland stimulant / detoxifier in high doses because of the high antioxidant content. Being disciplined with steps 1-6 for a year or so will certainly bring about pineal awakening. Step 7 is optional but very useful too.

Study: Even Organic Honey Contains Toxic Glyphosate

Read full article here
Read full article here

recent study from Boston University and Abraxis LLC, found glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, present in honey. The study found that both conventional and organic honey contained glyphosate, specifically 62 percent of conventional honey and 45 percent of organic honey.

Two issues could be causing the contamination of organic honey. First, a single honey bee will travel six miles to find nectar so it’s nearly impossible to avoid all pesticides. Additionally, beekeepers use pesticides to control Varroa mites in beehives. The mites are a parasite that attacks honeybees and can cause disease. When organic beekeepers buy commercially available wax for their hives, it could be contaminated with pesticides. Even though organic beekeepers can’t directly treat their beehives with pesticides.
