The connection between Mindfulness and Meditation

By Brett Maletic | Spirituality

“Mindfulness” has become quite the buzzword in popular culture today. While we could argue that its vogue-like emergence is just another fashionable trend – embraced, paraded and glamorized by both health enthusiasts and socialites alike – I would suggest that what we are really seeing is something far more significant. I would also suggest that the practice of mindfulness itself actually has some very important implications for where our civilization is going.

The One Spirit of Brexit

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Emotional Vitality

How can we best stay positive and hopeful during the next 2 years (and perhaps longer) during the Brexit process? How can we all, each and every one of us, play our part in smoothing the process and bringing about the best result for everyone: Brits and fellow Europeans alike?

Because isn’t that part of the reason the vote for Brexit went the way it did: that so many individuals felt excluded from the EU and related political and bureaucratic decisions and benefits? If we want a better, stronger Britain as a result, such factors have to be taken into account!

The 10 Things That Each Made Me 10% Happier

By Melanie Taylor | Emotional Vitality , Spirituality

It seems like everywhere we look someone is telling us how to be happier. Commercials telling us what we need to buy to be happier. Store windows showing us the look of happier.

It’s like that dangling carrot we can never quite reach. So how do we actually be happier?

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Emotional Vitality , Spirituality

Beyond Thought Today is about bringing together the conventional and spiritual worlds. Here’s a great example: At the time I took my Second Degree Reiki, 20 years ago, I was working in the electronics industry, on the quality and reliability of the very latest silicon chips . . . such as were used in the first digital telephone exchange (remember BT’s Buzby?). A world away, you might think, from Reiki.

A Cultural Chasm?

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Emotional Vitality , Spirituality

As the US faces the uncertain reality of its election result and Britain pursues Brexit, whatever that means in practice, so our nations may seem divided. Both campaigns were bitter and divisive. Although, on both sides of the pond, the winners have called for unity, healing and working together, within the hearts and minds of many Brits and Americans, this intent doesn’t seem realistic.
