Feeling stuck? What's your groove got to do with it?

Samskaras (Sanskrit – संस्कार) – are impressions that leave imprints or grooves on the subconscious mind from past experience. They are dynamic forces that color our experience of ourselves and affect our state of mind and our response to life itself.

Our conditionings, in the form of thoughts, emotions and behaviors become stronger through repetition. It’s easy for us to fall into the same groove time and time again and feel stuck. Such habits are part of the human condition and I propose can also lay the foundation for opening us to our greatest destiny.

Why You Don't Need to Be Grateful for Anything

Gratitude gives life meaning and yet it need not be dependent on the outside world.

“Gratitude improves emotional and physical health, and it can strengthen relationships and communities.  Without gratitude, life can be lonely, depressing and impoverished.

However the heart also possesses intelligence that is consciousness. It plays a significant role in our mental, emotional and physical processes – thus having a direct effect on our health and our lives.

Why We Need Touch

“To touch is to give life” Michelangelo

I developed The Resilience Project to highlight the necessity of touch in human health and development. The power of touch is an integral part of my healing pilgrimage and one our world can no longer afford to take lightly.

As humans, touch is an integral way in which we communicate compassion. We transmit the quality of our awareness through touch. It is how our innate goodness can be expressed, felt and understood. Everyday gestures like a pat on the back or a gentle caress can be far more profound than we realize.
