I first studied Tibetan Buddhism in college decades ago, inspired (and intimidated) by the lengthy vows (18 root and 46 secondary) that Mahayana disciples took to release themselves from the cycles of karma (samsara) and dedicate their lives to attaining enlightenment (nirvana) so that they could help others on the Bodhisattva path...
Editor's Note: For many yoga practitioners, yoga goes well beyond the 6'x2' mat of a 6:00pm -7:30pm Tuesday night yoga class. The author of this article has an amazing and interesting history with yoga. As you get to know her (she's an instructor, book author and yoga studio owner in Tokyo, Japan), you will see what a wonderful journey she's embarked upon thus far. Her journey is inspirational, encouraging and uplifting. In this piece, she discusses finding the ancient Mahayana Buddhism from the Lotus Sutra as a road map for her life. "These 'Six Perfections' are innate human qualities that form a blueprint for living a virtuous life and transcending one’s karma."
Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: Louise Hay is probably single-handedly responsible for the inspiration movement of our time. With Hay House Publications and all of the other inspirational authors and books she's help share with the populace. Enjoy listening to Louse Hay herself as she shares how our thoughts create our future.

Editor's Note from Sandra Miniere: The 90/10 principle offers a life changing message that affects us every day. Covey states that 90 percent of your life is decided by how you react. This message is worth hearing often. Think of the last time you reacted negatively to a life situation. What were the consequences? Could the outcome have been different if you chose to act in a more positive manner? Covey reminds you to be mindful as you participate in the life you are creating. Enjoy!

Memories of my grandmother Ida's cautious words occasionally play through my mind. "Child, watch your words unless you wanna be creatin' that now!" My grandma may have had an understanding that we create our life situations through our thoughts and words, but I'm not so sure she realized it is possible to undo old beliefs and recreate a new reality...
Editor's Note from Natalie Jovanic: What do you believe? And even more important: Do they work for you? Our beliefs have a huge impact on our lives, and they do not always serve us well. Read this inspirational article by Nancy Brady and learn about the power of beliefs and how you can create positive change.
Editor’s Note from Ellen Mahoney: Many people speak about shining one’s light in the world, but what does this mean? I think this YouTube posted by ClarybelC2002 does an excellent job of “shedding light” on this important subject. There are so many good messages here that are presented with both words and visuals. Namaste.
Editor's Note from Ellen Mahoney: Aelita Andre (born January 9, 2007) is getting a lot of recognition these days for being a very young surrealistic painter/artist whose work is being shown in venues such as various New York City exhibitions. She began to paint before she was a one-year-old and seems to continue to delight in her painting; she is of Russian heritage and lives in Melbourne, Australia...

Imagine a nice chalet in the Swiss mountains. And now imagine its garden. When I came home after staying two months abroad, tons of weeds blocked the pathway to my house. Yesterday I decided to get rid of it. The green had grown so high that it was difficult to uproot. I ripped it up while telling myself constantly . . .
