This Is What It Means To Be With Someone Who Is Selfless In Love

Thought.isTo even get to a point of dating someone selfless is a task in itself. They’ll push you away. They’ll convince themselves you’re better off without them. They’ll do everything in the world to make you happy without addressing the simple fact, what makes you happy could very well be them if given the chance.
Someone who is selfless in love, loves in such a way it’s almost a flaw.
Because they give everyone what they need, forgetting to give anything or keep much for themselves. They’ll be the first there if you need them.

Here’s Why You Should Be Kind To Everyone, Always

Although kindness is encouraged by every major religion and is recognized as a value in many cultures, sometimes it’s reeeally hard to be kind. We all know it. In fact, at some points in our life, it feels easier to be unkind – especially when we’re not in a great place and we feel like the world is working against us. If our self-esteem is a bit shaky, or if we want to be perceived as strong by others, then sometimes we act unkindly towards people.
But – underneath – we are all vulnerable.

The Thought of Love’s Victory

Ida Lawrence, Contributor

I’ve been thinking about the messages that we give each other and ourselves. Sometimes these really hit the mark, and they help a lot. Often the help comes not from a big long article, but just a few words. So I wondered what few words would help us ‘in this time’. You know and I know that what’s going on in the world now is so death-loving that it’s beyond comprehension.

Love, Reality And The Time Of Transition

All you need is Love!

by Bernhard Guenther

This video sheds light into the nature of love, relationships, the “New Age” movement, reality-creation, quantum physics, objectivity vs. subjectivity and how it all relates to the topics of “conspiracy theories”, psychopathy, and the importance of esoteric self-work.

That’s what John Lennon was singing and it is true, all we need is love.

In a Capacity for Love

Ida Lawrence, Contributor

Peaceful, wholly contained moments: sometimes they come to us while in nature, sometimes when family is in ‘sync’, sometimes within an embrace. It’s as if a blessing descends, we’re in our body, and the body knows that everything is perfect: we feel uplifted and at home in an expanded, balanced center. “I am here, my heart is happy, this is real, love is here, and it’s eternal.”

As you might guess, we’re starting out with the ‘perfect moment’ because I recently enjoyed one.

5 Ways to Unf*ck the World

Gary ‘Z’ McGee, Staff Writer

“I rebel; therefore we exist.” –Albert Camus

Here’s the thing: the earth is not fucked. The earth will go on evolving with or without us. In fact, in many ways it is better off without us. No, it’s the human world that’s fucked. Either we adapt and overcome by making cooperation primary and competition secondary, or we’re fucked. It really is that simple. Unfucking the world will not be a walk in the park.

Many believe that conscious awareness originates in the brain alone. Recent scientific research suggests that consciousness actually emerges from the brain and body acting together.

Is Gratitude The Key To A Healthier, Longer & Happier Life?

As children we are all taught the importance of gratitude and are encouraged to regularly express that gratitude through acknowledging phrases, warm acts of courtesy or through silent credit given to a power above. In certain instances, expressing gratitude comes with ease, particularly when we find ourselves as the recipient of good fortune or a kind deed.

The Number One Reason Most Relationships Struggle

Don’t fear those difficult conversations that you’ve been putting off or building up in your head. Communication is key to success in all relationships. From romantic relationships to professional relationships, it is important that individuals learn to and are able to effectively communicate with each other.
Communication is particularly important during times of conflict and stress. It will prevent or even eliminate misunderstandings which can lead to unnecessary arguments. These are the times when our personal feelings and beliefs come into play and what we say is often reflected in our feelings, insecurities and limiting beliefs.
