Life doesn't have to be complex. Clear the decks and there's more room to experience what is new and relevant now, in every moment. If we can just go inside as often as possible and take inventory of what we are experiencing, good and bad, then we won't accumulate so much unconsciously. We can bring our super-conscious awareness in.
Vitter is likely too cynical to believe that there are people in this world genuinely interested in advancing efforts to clean up our planet and mitigating the damages from industrial pollution that will be wrought on future generations.
There comes a time when you feel the vibration of a new life awakening and expanding -- when you have the burning desire to peek through a crack in your chrysalis and see the world and its possibilities in a whole new light.

It is often said that the best things in life are the most simple and therefore the most under-appreciated.

The Obama Administration's proposed regulation of existing power-sector sources of CO2 has the potential to be cost-effective, and if you accept these numbers, it can also be welfare-enhancing, if not welfare-maximizing.
Despite the worst fears of impending environmental tragedy that arise from a reading of air quality data or the trajectory of coal use, China is walking a path that many cities and nations have walked before.
This week marks the six month anniversary of the Dan River coal ash spill in North Carolina. In February 2014, a broken pipe released up to 82,000 gal...
The metaphysical equation and question: Where does the essence of the artist (the creator) end and the form called the creation begin? This question gives new meaning to the age old adage, "As within, so without."
Illinois may be more famous for imprisoned governors, but as a coal state struggling with its energy future, some of our politicians have wacky things to say about fossil fuels. With the threatened start of fracking plus backlash to EPA proposing new rules on carbon emissions, you can expect more foolishness to come.
