This is your life. 10 Things for Conscious People to Focus on in 2013. Dylan Charles, ContributorActivist Post The long anticipated and prophesied year, 2012, has come and gone; yet, the problems and challenges facing mankind and planet earth remain.
Those who have put stock in the idea of conscious evolution are now faced with the burden of proof: is there any legitimacy to this idea of a ‘shift?’ Some human experiences prove too extraordinary and too far outside of the purview of science and intellect to effectively put into words. Because of this, many people who have felt ‘the shift’ taking place in their lives in recent years, such as I, find it difficult to convey the significance of what we feel taking place in the realms of our own psyches and amongst the collective human consciousness.
Straddling this dichotomy, we must find actionable ways to demonstrate how the betterment of mankind is possible amongst the tidal wave of disasters and bad news confronting us all. So, let’s get to work. Dispel fear from your life. Kill it, once and for all. Namaste. 50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind. These questions have no right or wrong answers.
Because sometimes asking the right questions is the answer. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? Which is worse, failing or never trying? If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do? When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

Somebody asked me what advice I would give to my 18-year-old self.
It is as follows: First of all, slow your load. I get that your hormones are raging at the fiery furnace of vagina hellfire terror. Cool. These hormones might make you want to just dry hump all over every celebrity vampire or badass in a GQ leather jacket, but you can’t go around hoping to make out with celebrities all the time! Well, except for that one guy. No. Seriously. That being said, I don’t want you to be so cynical. Remember being vulnerable isn’t something you only do when you are young. 38 Life Lessons I've Learned in 38 Years.

» The No. 1 Habit of Highly Creative People. “In order to be open to creativity, one must have the capacity for contructive use of solitude.
One must overcome the fear of being alone.” ~Rollo May Post written by Leo Babauta. Creativity is a nebulous, murky topic that fascinates me endlessly — how does it work? What habits to creative people do that makes them so successful at creativity? I’ve reflected on my own creative habits, but decided I’d look at the habits that others consider important to their creativity. This was going to be a list of their creative habits … but in reviewing their lists, and my own habits, I found one that stood out. It’s the Most Important Habit when it comes to creativity. After you read the No. 1 habit, please scroll down and read the No. 2 habit — they might seem contradictory but in my experience, you can’t really hit your creative stride until you find a way to balance both habits.
The No. 1 Creativity Habit In a word: solitude. Creativity flourishes in solitude.
How the Brain Stops Time. One of the strangest side-effects of intense fear is time dilation, the apparent slowing-down of time. It's a common trope in movies and TV shows, like the memorable scene from The Matrix in which time slows down so dramatically that bullets fired at the hero seem to move at a walking pace. In real life, our perceptions aren't keyed up quite that dramatically, but survivors of life-and-death situations often report that things seem to take longer to happen, objects fall more slowly, and they're capable of complex thoughts in what would normally be the blink of an eye.
Now a research team from Israel reports that not only does time slow down, but that it slows down more for some than for others. Anxious people, they found, experience greater time dilation in response to the same threat stimuli. An intriguing result, and one that raises a more fundamental question: how, exactly, does the brain carry out this remarkable feat?
