Homage to Rudi on his Birthday

The day I met Rudi, he was standing quietly in the kitchen doorway. There was something different about this man. His eyes twinkled with intense energy, as if it wasn’t quite contained in his small, rotund body. We approached the door, and I remember clinging to the corner elbow of my husband’s jacket out of fear to meet someone so expansive, yet so humble. He was bigger than life, standing right before my eyes. He just said hello politely and invited us into the class. I was 23 years old. It was 1972. After the meditation class we had dinner…

The Inevitable Rise of Global Consciousness

We are living in strange times. Everything is shifting under our feet. With so many changes, who can we believe? What if our success is already written in the “Precession of the Equinoxes” cycle, and confirmed by Hindu “Yugas”? What is the Precession of the Equinoxes? NASA describes it as a cycle of 26,000 years as the Earth’s rotates through the zodiac, currently leaving the Age of Pisces, entering the Age of Aquarius.

AVOID: Top 3 Foods of Inflammation & Heart Disease

Shall we play a game? In a small bowl mix together a few teaspoons sugar, a handful of any flour, and a splash of vegetable oil. Add a bit of water and stir.

There are always multiple causes for any disease. Alzheimer’s many causes can include high blood sugar, toxic accumulation, heavy metals,…
