What is freedom and why are people willing to die for it?

We fear to lose our freedom, yet if we are already free nobody could rob us from being who we are. This type of thinking is called by some people, spiritual or the freedom of the human spirit. It implies a state beyond the physical or perhaps constraint by the physical. This kind of thinking allowed many people to survive restrictions of physical freedom, for example the holocaust.

Please, tell me what freedom means to you? Are you free? Are you feeling controlled by economical or other power system or by another person? Is that a physical restriction or a psychological or self-imposed restriction?

Are you free and yet are you feeling lost? Are you growing your understanding about the responsibilities of being free? Because being free is not easy. Former prisoners sometimes commit minor crimes to go back to the structured system that had just released them. Erich Fromm said "Man achieve freedom from--without yet having achieved freedom to--to be himself, to be productive, to be fully awake." Where are you? Are you reclaiming your freedom to be you?

Dance and Smile!

What I can give you that you don't have already?
The best of you is within you.
Always remember to appreciate the things life give us.
The simple things and the most beautiful of all:
The view of the sky,
The rain,
The gentle breeze,
A new day
A cup of water when we are thirsty
or fresh air to breath and be alive.
Don't forget to smile and dance!
And say Thank You,
For everything!

Meditate on some of the great qualities of a human being...

Courage: the ability to conquer our personal battles to continue living a meaningful life without being afraid of the circumstances surrounding us...
Gratitude: To be thankful for life, our families, our health, etc.,
Openness: To be willing to see someone else point of view, to put ourselves in someone else's shoes, to really listen to others independently of whether we agree or disagree with their views.
Tenderness: the capacity to see the child and the vulnerable person there is inside of every single human even those who are in power and more so those who are disempower or still very young and vulnerable such as children.

The importance of a mentor

The importance of a mentor

"I must admit that I personally measure success in terms of the contribution an individual makes to her or his fellow human beings." Margaret Mead, Anthropologist
Mentorship or mentoring has long been a tradition of humanity. It is the way we learn naturally. Mentors do help their disciples or students to fast track their learning curve and thus to acquire knowledge rapidly and using efficient ways.
Finally, as Jack Canfield (video provided) suggests that you do not give up in your dreams of finding a good mentor. He says that you shall ask questions and follow their steps and suggestions. You also need to correspond and help your mentor-- and be thankful for their help. Besides that I would ask that you listen to your own insights too. If a person tells you constantly that you are a failure, don't follow them, because, they do not know how to guide you. They may think they have good intentions, yet they are putting you down and down with 'their good intentions'. Those people even if they have been given the role of mentor/or have successfully mentored someone else--are not a good match for you. Know that everybody has a gift, and you are not an exception.

Book Review: Many Lives, Many Masters

In this book author Brian Weiss, a psychiatrist and researcher at Mont Sinai, Miami, FL., documents the past lives a patient by using a hypnotic regression technique. Through regression both doctor and patient found explanations for the patient’s current symptoms but also her current relationships.

These regression experiences allowed the patient’s to recover her health and become a healer and psychic. The doctor, on the other hand, was transformed from a skeptical scientist to a scientist who increased his horizons to integrate soul searching, inner wisdom, and other topics considered unconventional among the scientific and medical community.
