I have slowly come to understand that deep peace and and a strong, long-lasting happiness in life grows only from a solid spiritual practice. If we can follow a spiritual practice every day that reflects and follows the laws of time, nature and the universe, then our ability to be happy in life will increase. We begin to generate the strength to be happy. And if we so desire, if we are so inclined, we will also be blessed with spiritual gifts and insights too. I have learned all this information from Dr. Torsunov, a spiritual teacher of Vedic knowledge that I respect deeply and I am happy to share it with you today. There is so much information available in Russian and not as much available in English, so I hope to be able to share with you some of the things I come across in English for those of you who are interested in this form of spiritual wisdom.
According to the Vedas, we can live our lives under three main influences. We can live under the influence of ignorance and degradation, the influence of passion (how the majority of people live), and the influence of benevolence. This is a blog post on the principles of benevolence and some of the fundamentals of what it means to live a benevolent life.
Oh, how I wish I would post in my blog more! Early morning is usually the time I am most inspired to spend time on writing for my blog, but I always (sadly) decide that it would be better for me to channel that energy on studying instead. And so I do. And then by around 7pm I’m too mentally tired to write But anyway, I am so happy to be here tonight!
Today we are going to talk about our spiritual bank account…..
I had to share with you a simple recipe for these chocolate and coconut balls of goodness. I made these today and they were so delicious!
Envy is a force in life that chains you to the person that you envy. I believe there are karmic consequences to being envious and judgmental which is what we will discuss today!
Hello everybody! I want to share with you some of the photographs I took during my time in India this December. I am excited to try out the new gallery feature on wordpress!

I am sorry that I have not posted here in what seems like a very long time! I am on vacation at the moment and didn’t make the time to sit and write as many blog posts as I would have liked. I do have a little one for you today though! I hope you enjoy it.
I also have a lot of photographs and stories to share with you soon too.
As it is New Year’s Eve I would like to wish you all a blessed 2013! I have always held new year’s very close to my heart, and consider it a very auspicious time filled with so much promise and joy. So, happy new year! May 2013 be filled with joy.
Now, back to today’s post…
One of my goals for 2013 is to begin my journey of purifying and strengthening my consciousness.
There are structures of “loving discipline” that must take place between a couple. There will be times in the relationship where each of you will do something “wrong”, and when this happens you will feel the urge to “correct” this behavior, to teach your partner that this is not acceptable.
In this blog I will be sharing and promoting the Vedic ideals of womanhood and “the Vedic relationship” which are established in traditional fundamentals and values.
So, loving discipline…
There is a feminine way to do this and a masculine way to do this.
Hi! I am so excited to be able to post a blog post today. My class and I have been eye deep in studying for our winter finals. And they are not even over yet (sad face). But, I think the worst of it is done. So let’s all wish success to everybody in my class for the next week!
Today’s post is about the upward and downward cycles of human nature. It is a cycle we repeat many times during our lives, and also during our day-to-day interactions with projects and relationships. During the climb up we tend to feel motivated and inspired, we then reach a brief plateau before we begin our downward descent. I can literally look through this list and identify which stage I am on in an area of my life and see what is coming up for me soon! And then not only am I prepared but I am also aware of what is happening at each stage and how each stage feeds the next one.
