  • Your primary focus should be on the now. If not now, when?

"Have you ever experienced, done, thought or felt anything outside of the now? Do you think you ever will? Is it possible for anything to happen or be outside the now? The answer is obvious, is it not?"

The Manifestation In The Present Moment

Yoga Nidra reveals to us that we always live in the present moment. The reality is only the limitless now. When we think about the past and the future, we fail to realize that when we were living in the past, it was now, and when we will live in the future, it will be now at that moment...

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.

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!

Sean Green

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

Laetitia Berton
