“At its simplest, conscious living is the art of feeling your feelings, speaking authentically, knowing your life purpose, and carrying out effective actions that contribute to your well-being and the well-being of others. The moment we commit ourselves to living consciously, we embark on a journey of wonder through the real world, on a sacred path of infinite practicality. I believe that committing to the journey makes us fully human. I believe also that wholehearted participation in the journey is our very best way of returning thanks for the gift of life”.

Unexpected Forms of Magic

“Once I had committed myself to the path, I discovered an unexpected form of magic. Invisible pathways open up through the universe. We meet people who are on a similar path, and we are given forms of assistance that seem like magic. All these things happened as I opened myself to discovering who I was and what my true purpose in life was.” — Joseph Campbell

  • If we want to experience some unexpected magic, we got a throw our knapsacks over the wall, commit and let the invisible hands guide us on our quest!

Let Go of the Past

  • We keep ourselves so tied up in regretting the past and fearing the future that we don't have any energy left to figure out who we are and what we want to create right now.
  • A key aspect of living consciously is to BE PRESENT. We can't do that if we're constantly churning through the negative stories of our past. We got a let it go and become present to the joy of this moment.

Being One-Selved Organisms

  • We are designed to be one-selved organisms: when all of the multitudes we contain within us are embraced in the fullness and oneness of our core selves, we are happy.
  • The first steps of healing and growth are awareness and acceptance-consciousness and integration: becoming aware of and accepting disowned parts of the self.

Stoics Rock!

  • The Stoics lived in a time when a philosopher was a combination of therapist and inspirational teacher, whose province was the conscious encounter with daily life.
  • Let go of your beliefs and expectations of how things must be. Ground yourself thoroughly in reality, then select carefully what you would like to change about the others, the world, or yourself.

Five Required Lessons of the Journey

  1. Feel All Your Feelings Deeply: “Always and in every moment”
  2. Seek Your True Self: “Focus first on who you are, then let your actions flow from this place of deep self-knowledge.”
  3. Let Go of the Uncontrollable: “There are some things you can control and some things you cannot.”
  4. We Are All Made of the Same Thing: “When we go deeply enough into who we are and who others are, we will find our organic connection with divinity and theirs.”
  5. Life Is Fullest When We’re Most True to Ourselves: “If you express what needs to be expressed within you, you will be happy and fulfilled. If you don’t, you won’t.”

Choose Goals or Go with the Flow? Both, please!

  • To live a full life, we must be open to the Mystery and live a purposeful life within its spacious context.
  • Quit seeing everything as an “either/or” equation and open into the possibility of “both/and” situations.

100% Committed vs. No Commitment

  • We are either 100 percent or not committed at all.
  • Once you make a 100% commitment to something, there are no exceptions.
  • Successful people adhere to the “no exceptions rule” when it comes to their daily disciplines.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
