We know that the best way to lose weight is to eat less, especially of foods that are high in calories. Sugar is a well-known adversary of weight loss. But before depriving ourselves of healthy fats and sweets, it’s wise to try to understand the real reasons we eat more than necessary. I believe that the mechanisms of wishful thinking and fear are subconsciously operating in our minds when it comes to our eating patterns. Food can become an addiction, often stemming from emotional triggers when we wish our lives to be different. Steven Pressfield, the famous writer once wrote: “Most of us have two lives. The life we live, and the unlived life within us.”

The way I see it, having the courage to realize the unlived life within is essential to our physical and psychological health. A simple practice of courage is to trust this moment for what is. Feeling grateful for what we have can empower us to follow our hearts, thus making each moment fulfilled and joyful. The happier we are within, the less preoccupied with food we become.

The perfection of this moment embraces us with unconditional love for our spiritual wealth, for who we truly are  – there is nothing lacking. 


Much, much love! 




The moment we choose to recognize our experiences in the world as lessons of love, life turns into a lucid dream. This recognition can come from the depths of our hearts or from spiritual awareness through the senseless suffering caused by our minds. Either way, the main difference between a nightmare and a lucid dream is a shift of perception grounded in love. In the dream of life, there are many mountains to climb every day, and they might crumble, the dust might blur our vision, the fear might replace our hope, but if we have faith and recognize our own essence, WE will never fall again. 

Much Love!




It's important to be aware that fitness can set in as a dangerous addiction, even when we practice our deepest spiritual understanding on daily basis. I caught myself overtraining after spending days in meditation. We can never underestimate our habitual tendencies. Although spiritual knowledge, coupled with the guidance of our own hearts, can prevent exercise from becoming an unhealthy practice, it is my belief that we still need to surround ourselves with those who are on the path of “true health” to create the environment that will allow us to practice our virtues consistently.

Since everyone is unique, finding the most enjoyable way you can unite body and mind can turn any exercise session into a spiritual activity —simple solution: bring the heart into it everything you do! 


Much Love!

Did you know that the songs we listen to are interconnected with our personalities?

For example, the genres that Explorers favor more than other Roles – namely, electronica (68%), hip-hop (49%), pop (74%), and reggae (35%) – may most frequently match the Explorer mood: energetic and in the moment. Whether it is a fast-driving techno beat or a reggae groove, Explorers may look for music that is more textural than intellectual, evoking an immediate, visceral response.

Here is a summary break it down from recent studies:

Blues fans have high self-esteem, are creative, outgoing, gentle and at ease

  1. Not getting enough sleep

  2. Avoiding (healthy) fats

  3. Eating too many processed foods

  4. Not consuming enough bone broth

  5. Failing to minimize stress

  6. Not exercising

  7. Using the wrong beauty products

  8. You have too much sugar in your diet

We, people who listen to the voice of own hearts, don't listen to people who despise us — who envy us — who don’t believe in our life’s purpose — we don’t listen to those who tell us what to do — what to think or what to feel. Those who try to make us small, deceive us, treat us with disrespect, use us as modern slave. We don’t give ourselves to these people with unnatural,  synthetic hearts. We are precious! We are the stars on Earth. We are people who have the love of humanity in our being. We don't hate. Only the unloved hate — the unloved and the unnatural.
We, people who trust in the heart, know that the Kingdom of “God” is within — in everyone. We are true to ourselves. We have the power to create a free and loving environment.  The power to create happiness! We have the power to make this life a compassionate and marvelous adventure.
Then, in the name of our heart’s aspiration, let us use that power. Let us all unite. Let us come together for a new world, a decent world that will give everyone a chance to work, that will give youth the future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, people with synthetic hearts have risen to power, but they lie. They don’t and didn’t fulfill their promise; they never will. These people are selfish, they free themselves, but they enslave others. Let’s come together to fulfill that promise. Let us come together to replace greed, hate and intolerance with generosity, love, and justice. Let us come together for a world of kindness, a world where science, development, ideas and opportunities will lead to everyone’s happiness.
We, people who are confident in the truth of our hearts, are the hope we seek.

Much Love!

TV, social media and the radio have brought us closer together, however, the very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in our hearts, cries out for universal brotherhood, for the unity of us all. Even now that the voice of the heart can reach millions throughout the world — millions still can’t hear the message — with persistence, they comply with a system that makes them torture and imprison their souls. To those who can hear me, I say — do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed — the bitterness of those who fear the way of human magnificence and honor, will pass. Nothing is permanent. Life is constantly changing and renewing itself because it trusts our hearts.

Those who still choose to act with hate and greed will die, but so long as we live, the heart will never give up on us – it will give the gift loving here on Earth and beyond. Love never dies.

Much Love!

I don't want to control anyone. That's not my business. I’d like to help everyone, if possible, Americans, Indians, the kind, the unkind, black, white, children. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that when we listen to their hearts. We want to live by each other's happiness — not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another.
In this world there is room for everyone. Mother Earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be JOYFUL AND BEAUTIFUL, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned people’s souls, has blinded the world with hate, has made most forget they have a beating heart that cries for love. We have developed technology, but we have shut ourselves in. Business opportunities that give wealth and abundance, have left us in a poverty state of dissatisfaction, wanting more and more. There is meaningful purposes. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than technology and opportunities to make money we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent, untrusting and all will be lost.

It’s paramount that we try to revive these precious and valuable qualities in our daily lives.

Much love!

Following the golden rules for healthy living lowers the risk of developing dementia by more than a third.

Regular physical exercise, eating a Mediterranean diet, not smoking, and drinking alcohol in moderation were all found to decrease the risk of developing Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

In addition, decreasing stress, preventing and treating diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity was also found to reduce the risk.

But while heavy drinking was linked to dementia, drinking moderate levels of alcohol was found to be beneficial.

The changes that we need to make to keep our brains healthy are already proven to be good for the heart and overall health, so it’s common sense for us all to try to build them into our lives.

At an individual level we need to look after our brains - sharpen those chess skills, read more, meditate, practice deep listening, ditch sugar, add antioxidants rich foods to your diet and sleep well. - Read more...

If we can learn how to create space for action without losing touch with the joy in our hearts, we can live with serenity.  We become stressed, anxious, and depressed because we have limited our minds to act and react according to our psychological, emotional and physical aspects only. 

Think of it this way; when we are in our hearts, living a kind and positive life, we can be overloaded with thoughts and physical activities, and our peaceful state won’t change as long as we are not identified with our "must do" actions, and likes and dislikes, but rather open beings that embrace it all. What is amazing is that we can live in that space, starting at this moment, by recognizing we are joyful and serene beings having a human life!

Given how exercise, diet, and even therapy can become traps for a painful emotional reality, it’s crucial for us be aware of the fundamental causes of our suffering. Think of how we can consciously or unconsciously believe we are not good enough or not worthy of happiness. We then begin to work hard in pursuit of this worth. As a result, anything external that gives us the illusion we deserve happiness for our effort will also become our own created prison. This cycle of sustaining habits out of fear makes exercise and diet or whatever our external source of happiness is into negative forces, thus compounding the root problem as we live for our bodies and for conditioned emotional stability through abusive mechanisms. This can cause disharmony within the heart, a state of mind where true happiness cannot exist.

The links between a painful past and fitness became clear to me after a period of major inner turbulence. I knew that most compulsive behaviors had their roots in traumatic experiences, but I never connected my obsession with fitness with lingering inner pain from the past. I believed I was a strong person who had overcome pain because I had a fit and healthy body to prove it, as well as a life that seemed to be driven and built by authentic and exciting experiences. However, the truth was that my fitness habits, to a great extent, were escapism.

Much love!

Bringing back our traumatic past experiences is one way to understand the pattern of our limited view of life, especially a spiritual one. When we learn to reinterpret hurtful past events as “lessons of love” in the sense of recognizing that everything that happens to us is an effect of a cause we have created ourselves. It took the Buddha’s teachings of karma for me to understand my own life and mind. However, it’s my belief that we don’t have to be Buddhists to see how painful past events can turn our present lives into a nightmare when we view them as purely negative.

Many of us experience the feeling of compassion when preparing or eating animal flesh, and some even reject meat at childhood. This is not an accident. We all live in different spiritual realities and levels. What is interesting is that those of us who have had profound spiritual experiences often don’t trust them to be real. I believe this is because we are too immersed and attached to our physical reality. We are basically in denial of the interconnectedness of our reality.

The way I see it, food cravings (though certainly not all of them) are directly connected to anxiety and fear. This may be because the mind has associated happiness with pleasure, and since pleasure and pain are closely related, suffering becomes a tasty experience. The body, on the other hand, craves food and sex for self-preservation and perpetuation, not pleasure. It’s interesting to notice that only the heart is rooted in love and kindness. It has no cravings that can cause us suffering. The heart cares for our being as a whole, and also for others, thus happily and healthily embracing everything as a big family.

Much love!

When you’ve found joy in your own heart, you’ll have a much different experience when exercising. There should be a body and mind connection where you are in the moment; there is enjoyment, no fear, or less concern with your physical health; you are simply respecting the natural law of cause and effect; satisfaction before, during, and after your exercise sessions; you feel anxiety-free about your next workout.

 Exercise is a great habit to cultivate, but should not be an obsession. There should be no expectation to get specific results apart from improving your overall health. There should be no guilt when you don’t exercise. The main motivation is to live longer and be physically healthy so you can do more of the spiritual work on yourself and help others to do the same.

My advice is that you find your own unique way to connect with that deep feeling of love while moving your body.

Much love!

Although physical health is an important asset, the reasons we engage in exercise can still become unhealthy. Being mindful about your motivation for hitting the gym or engaging in any physical activity is helpful if you are looking for spiritual growth and self-knowledge. Be on the lookout for these unhealthy motivations to practice exercise:

·      The need to be thin to feel good every day.

·      Pressure to look good and lean to attract a new partner or to please an existing one.

·      Feelings of insecurity about a specific body part.

·      Fear of not being loved by others if you are out of shape.

·      Guilt for not exercising every day or more often.

·      To release stress caused by a changeable situation.

·      To release anger.

·      To show off, get attention, compete, or provoke envy in others.

·      To fight or to intimidate others.

·      Out of pure habit and without enjoyment.

·      Shame.

·      Pressure to be a role model in your family, work, town, or society.

These are just some examples. Keep in mind that behind all these reasons to work out, there is fear, and it is fear that makes them unhealthy.

If you are like me, someone who can’t stay away from physical activities, integrating fitness and spirituality is essential. How many of us have struggled to answer the question of how to take good care of our bodies, but not fall for preconceptions of physical attractiveness and health? The answer can be both very simple, but highly complex and paradoxical at the same time. However, the closer we live close to our spiritual hearts, the less we tend to engage in physical activities purely as beautifying or self-cherishing methods, even when these activities promote good-looking bodies, health, and higher self-esteems. At this point, we are wiser, joyful, and peaceful enough to work on our bodies, so we hang around longer to support others with our virtues. 

Much love!

Fear and insecurity can turn physical fitness into an addiction. While most of us consider the pursuit of physical fitness to be a great habit, for me, it was a painful cycle disguised a healthy practice. The more unsatisfied I was with myself, the more strenuous, restrictive, and consistent my exercise and diet became. Looking back, it’s clear to see that dissatisfaction, not lack of health, was what propelled me to dedicate more than twenty years of my life to fitness. I strongly believe that the reason fitness and fit people are so popular is because most of us are attracted to the idea of having a “healthy-physical distraction” for our inner conflicts. Although it is true that exercise and physical attractiveness can improve our overall health and lift our self-esteem, to use these methods to hide our pain can also result in increased, unnecessary suffering. I don’t know anything healthier than having the courage to dive deeper into our own hearts for answers.  

Much love!

The pursuit of a fit and healthy body can only be a wonderful thing when we’ve already recognized our spiritual hearts as perfectly fit to provide us with a life of happiness and peace. In other words, consider that a fit body can make us smile more often for all the compliments we get, improve our health, and give us a temporary “happy” feeling of accomplishment. However, without a content mind and a joyful heart, this feeling won’t last long.

Since our health and feel-good state depend on external conditions and constant hard work that can propel us into an endless cycle, my proposal is to reverse this; to work on our minds for a more stable feeling of happiness rooted in kindness that can then result in a healthy and fit body.

What do you think?
