Living The Yogic Life In A Material World with Karan Bajaj

Most of us have discovered that life is never a straight line. It actually resembles a series of zig-zags. We zig in order to strengthen our creative gifts. We zag in order to provide a roof over our head and food on the table.

Faith Without Religion: Bowing To The Mystery Of Life with Roger Housden

  Roger Housden shares with us that keeping faith does not require a religious code or practice “Faith is a wholehearted bodily knowing,” he says. Faith is an aliveness that doesn’t have an explanation. The purpose of life is revealed gradually. When answers are unavailable, faith holds us in place while we wait for them. Simply by trusting the present moment as it opens up to the next, we are expressing faith, love, and generosity. Grace, he suggests, is sitting at the table of the feast of your life.

The Direct Route To Awakening with John de Ruiter

 We have the capacity to go directly to truth and awakening, but we often get sidetracked by our delusions. As a teacher, philosopher John de Ruiter says, “We have the capacity to use our faculties to convince ourselves of something being true, because we need for that to be true. So, there’s a hanging on within the heart supported by an intellectual framework that enables that to happen. But, beyond all of that, we know something quieter, and it is that we don’t actually need what we say we need. But to agree with something we know on a level
