IS IT SYNCHRONICITY OR COINCIDENCE? LET’S FIND OUT

Just about everyone has experienced Deja vu. That very weird feeling and ‘recognition’ that you have ‘done this exact conversation, with the exact same people, in the exact place and timeframe’ before. Does our mind play tricks on us? How can this be? How do you explain this phenomenon? We are in awe of this mystery. This ‘little miracle of synchronicity’ is the Universe’s way of giving us a hint that there’s a vast amount of knowledge out there we don’t understand and could barely wrap our brains around if we did! Deja vu is a synchronistic event that...

DO YOU GET WHAT YOU WANT WITH ATTACHMENT OR ACCEPTANCE?

The Buddhists say ‘The cause of most of our suffering is due to our attachments’ What does this mean?

THE POWER

Nothing is quite as heavy as a word to which people ascribe profound and potent meanings. Rhonda Byrne, like she did with “The Secret,” uses loaded words in “The Power” to express fundamental truths in a simple, rich and rewarding way. Words like power and love point to a transcendent reality – a reality you bridge living your everyday life. In “The Power” Rhonda reveals the essence of life; the incomprehensible, but personal and intimately knowable force that governs every process and every being. That force is accessible to you and to everyone. You use it routinely and often...
