Spaces Between Beliefs

Dr. Samineh I. Shaheem | September 22, 2014 | Healthy Living

The Art of Surrender

Mark Matousek | September 22, 2014 | Healthy Living
No spiritual awakening is possible without surrender; until we get out of the way, we're unable to feel that power that is greater than our will, deeper than our thoughts and wider than our vaunting dreams. Humility is everything, we come to see. Our wagons are hitched to a higher star.

Money, Power and Your Health

Jane Simon, M.D. | September 22, 2014 | Healthy Living
There is little doubt that lack of sufficient money constitutes a major stress and contributes to bodily ills.

Finding Purpose

Cindy Tansin | September 20, 2014 | Healthy Living
Do you have a purpose-driven life? Or are you among the multitude of regular Joe's who have not identified or achieved their purpose? Because you are living without or in search of purpose, you are therefore inferior to those who are driven toward some great plan. Right?

Erica Ford | September 19, 2014 | Healthy Living
The bottom line is that, for whatever reason, Oprah Winfrey asked me to read my writing on her stage. At a conference where her goal was to help us find our callings. Oprah did that for me. And she didn't even know she was doing it. She really is just that magical.

Dr. Lisa Young | September 19, 2014 | Healthy Living

Dr. Alexandro Arenas | September 19, 2014 | Healthy Living
What type of person do you want to be? The one that is happy and has a blast during the process of attaining a goal, or the one that can only be happy until a desired outcome has arrived.

Aidan Donnelley Rowley | September 19, 2014 | Women
I avoided reading Charlotte Kitley's blog post for the reason many of us avoid many things: because I knew it would make me feel something hard, that it would affect me, that it would probably rattle me to the core. It has.
