Singing as a Spiritual Path | Somatic Voicework Teachers Association | Vocal Pedagogy for All Musical Styles Singing can be a path to spiritual growth. This takes the concept of spirituality in its broadest context. The human spirit lives through the characteristics of one’s life. Honesty, loyalty, truthfulness, courage, dedication, perseverance, patience, compassion, responsibility, humility…..these are qualities that reflect the highest and best attributes of humanity. Art, just as sports, can be daunting. Even those who succeed in doing what they love creatively have issues to face. Yes, other people who are not artists have to face these questions, too, but it seems to me easier to hide from them if you are distracted by your office job. Those who desire to sing professionally not only have to have some kind of natural ability, but also need specific skills, whether self-developed or learned in a formal setting from outside resources, and need be willing to put those abilities and skills on display on a regular basis.

Ralph Waldo Emerson - MindSerpent Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882) was an American lecturer, philosopher, essayist, and poet, best remembered for leading the Transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of published essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the United States. Emerson gradually moved away from the religious and social beliefs of his contemporaries, formulating and expressing the philosophy of Transcendentalism in his 1836 essay, Nature. Following this ground-breaking work, he gave a speech entitled The American Scholar in 1837, which Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. considered to be America’s “Intellectual Declaration of Independence”. Considered one of the great lecturers of the time, Emerson had an enthusiasm and respect for his audience that enraptured crowds. Source:

What Is Chaos Magic? What Is Chaos Magic? "All great things must first wear a terrifying and monsterous mask, in order to inscribe themselves on the hearts of humanity." -- Fredrick Nietzsche The words "Chaos Magic" reverberate with mystery and intrigue. It's rather safe to assume that this was intentional on the part of those who originally coined the term. The label of "Chaos Magic" suffers from two inherent drawbacks. The second (and more important) drawback is that the very idea of Chaos Magic inherently defies description. No Holds Barred Magic Chaos Magic is dangerous, awesome, full of potential and therefore highly compelling. In the menace and fascination of the very concept of "chaos" lies the power of Chaos Magic. So why is it called Chaos Magic? It is called "magic" since, like all other forms of Art of the Mages, it seeks to affect the course of events by non-normal means. But what makes it Chaos Magic? Strange Attractors Belief And Meta-belief Meta-belief is an important concept in Chaos Magic.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama "My message is the practice of compassion, love and kindness. These things are very useful in our daily life, and also for the whole of human society these practices can be very important. "Basically, universal responsibility is the feeling for other people's suffering just as we feel our own. It is the realization that even our own enemy is motivated by the quest for happiness. "At the heart of Buddhist philosophy is the notion of compassion for others. "The rationale for universal compassion is based on the same principle of spiritual democracy. "I believe our every-day experience confirms that a self-centred attitude towards problems can be destructive not only towards society, but to the individual as well. "Peace and the survival of life on earth as we know it are threatened by human activities that lack a commitment to humanitarian values. "Our ancestors viewed the earth as rich and bountiful, which it is. Our ancestors viewed the earth as rich and bountiful, which it is.

Mind Magic: Using the Law Of Attraction to Make Sex Sizzle Do you know The Secret? Oprah claims she does–and so do millions of others around the world who are fascinated with the “Law of Attraction.” So what could be a better time than right now–the eve of 2013–to take a long look at how this knowledge can enliven life, love, and sexuality in the New Year. In her bestselling book “The Secret,” author Ronda Byrne draws upon expert anecdotes and borrowed bits of quantum theory to suggest that the Law of Attraction (let’s call it LoA for short) enables us to have everything we want in life if we understand its rules. My Own Surprising Dream I’d like to introduce you to the LoA as I first encountered it, by telling you about a powerful dream I had many years ago, long before the LoA was even a blip on the screen of popular culture. The key to life? I was so struck by all of this that upon awakening I quickly wrote down every recollection. This is not just a word game.

Can We Please Stop Fighting Cancer? Looking at cancer from a yogic perspective, one word comes to mind: ahimsa, which means non-violence. According to the sage Patanjali, non-violence is the first Yama or right action, the first guiding principle from which to live and choose. And so we must ask ourselves: If we fight our way to health, can we truly be healed? Is it possible that taking a violent approach—trying to beat cancer, conquer cancer, fight cancer, labeling ourselves as cancer survivors—is actually part of the problem? There is a saying in yoga, “When the student is ready, the teacher is there.” At school you have a teacher. When we turn away from a teacher, tell them that they dont have anything to offer us, then we dont graduate, we get stuck and have to repeat the lessons. Many years ago the word disease was explained to me as dis-ease. Yogically we call this “identifying with the samsakara,” mental belief or pattern. But asana is not the only way to shift this reality, its the start. ~Editor: Hayley Samuelson.

10 Reasons You Should Never Get a Job Note: This was originally published by blogger Steve Pavlina and is the first “guest post” on HE. If you would like to write an article for HighExistence, click here It’s funny that when people reach a certain age, such as after graduating college, they assume it’s time to go out and get a job. But like many things the masses do, just because everyone does it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. Here are some reasons you should do everything in your power to avoid getting a job: 1. Getting a job and trading your time for money may seem like a good idea. Why is getting a job so dumb? Don’t you think your life would be much easier if you got paid while you were eating, sleeping, and playing with the kids too? Who cares how many hours you work? Non-dummies often start out on the traditional income for dummies path. Smart people build systems that generate income 24/7, especially passive income. This web site is an example of such a system. 2. Consider this. 3. Look around you. 4. 5. Morons. 6. 7.

Beyond environment: falling back in love with Mother Earth | Guardian Sustainable Business Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh has been practising meditation and mindfulness for 70 years and radiates an extraordinary sense of calm and peace. This is a man who on a fundamental level walks his talk, and whom Buddhists revere as a Bodhisattva; seeking the highest level of being in order to help others. Ever since being caught up in the horrors of the Vietnam war, the 86-year-old monk has committed his life to reconciling conflict and in 1967 Martin Luther King nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize, saying "his ideas for peace, if applied, would build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity." So it seems only natural that in recent years he has turned his attention towards not only addressing peoples' disharmonious relationships with each other, but also with the planet on which all our lives depend. Move beyond concept of the "environment" Change is possible only if there is a recognition that people and planet are ultimately one and the same. "We want to be connected.
