“There is no one else. In this universe, there’s just you and me. But all the people on earth… All you. Different incarnations of you. Wait. I’m everyone!? I’m every human being who ever lived? Or who will ever live, yes."

REINCARNATION

A process of survival after death whereby a certain immaterial, individual principle ("soul", "vital substance", "individual consciousness", "energy", even "spirit") completes successive life passages in different bodies (human, animal or vegetable, depending on the theory). This concept is mainly associated with the religions of the Indian subcontinent - Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism and Buddhism.

“Every time you victimized someone you were victimizing yourself. Every act of kindness you’ve done, you’ve done to yourself. Every happy and sad moment ever experienced by any human was, or will be, experienced by you.”

 "You’re a fetus. You’re still growing. Once you’ve lived every human life throughout all time, you will have grown enough to be born. So the whole universe it’s just… an egg.”

LIFE LESSON OF THE EGG

LIFE LESSON OF THE EGG

  • dealing with grief: when someone close to us dies, let's remember that it's a part of us that's leaving to come back. 
  • lifestyle: "The important thing is not the destination, but the journey itself." Staying focused on our goals prevents us from enjoying the present moment.
  • reason for living: we live to mature and grow into a great spirit. every good and bad experience is a step in this direction. 
  • how to behave with others: love your neighbor as you love yourself. Every time you hurt someone else, you hurt yourself.

CHILDREN OF THE STARS

CHILDREN OF THE STARS

We are all children of the stars. Everything that makes up our bodies: our bones, our muscles, our skin are living tissues composed of molecules, themselves made up of atoms of carbon, oxygen, iron, nitrogen and calcium. All these elements were manufactured in the heart of the stars. These are the same atoms found in trees, flowers and all animals.

HOW IS IT THAT THE CARBON FORMED AT THE HEART OF THE STARS ENDS UP IN THE HUMAN BODY ?

Several natural biological cycles link the carbon found in the air to plants, as it is absorbed via carbon dioxide through photosynthesis. This plant carbon is consumed by herbivorous animals, then by carnivores and finally by super predators, including mankind.

Finally, all this forms a natural cycle that operates in a loop on Earth. But in the beginning, all these atoms originated in the stars. That's why we're all stardust!

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.

Jamyson Haug

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

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!
