Society plagued in forgetful memory

Casting a net of obscurity

Hoping for change in a circular simulation

Minds bouncing in a box of retrograde illusion

What hope can be found in merger words

Ideas floating, waiting, taking endless turns

Universally, the minds do not exist

Yet not one individual can take rest

The protesters, the poets, the politicians all lie

Projecting prosperity, peace, and promise all in one sigh

An end is never near only a whisper that’s shouted

So everyone can hear a secret that’s been scouted

The right, the wrong; the rejected, and accepted

Made into a film…

When you watch a wave crashing onto the shores of a beach do you separate the wave from the ocean just because it is performing a separate action? The wave is part of the ocean acting as an individual. Though it is moving while the depths of the sea lie still, the wave is still connected to the vast harmony of the water.

Where should this connection end? A wave is also part of the thing we call a beach. A beach is also part of the thing we call a shore. The shore is part of the thing we…


Are the days gone when writing was a form of creative expression and not just a mess of simplistic phrases wrapped in keywords?

I’m afraid they may have, as I have fallen victim to the times myself.

Where Did My Poetry Lead Me?

I used to love writing poetry. It was my way of thinking creatively and without restraint.

But, it was even during the days of my creative writing class that I already noticed the control lurking toward my writing.

Teachers condemned me for my unusual form, confusing wording, and unwillingness to follow the normal patterns of prose.

Was this supposed to make me feel…


Almost 80 million Americans take some form of a psychiatric drug to treat an emotional disorder.

And with 8 out of 10 people using drugs long-term, this phenomenon should not be considered a solution rather a serious problem.

Using drugs to balance, alter, and fix the natural chemicals that produce emotional responses in our brain can have a catastrophic effect on our survival skills.

Let’s take a look at why we need to face our emotional imbalances in order to evolve and tackle life’s struggles.

Emotions Give Us Drive

The chemical that rewards us with pleasure, dopamine, is one of the primary motivations for…


Our bodies contain flows of energy that when misaligned and blocked can lead to serious mental and physical illness while halting our spiritual growth. These channels filter through the hubs of our major organs and body parts called chakras. We can use these chakras to heal ourselves by meditation using prana (the life force of breath) and asanas (yoga poses that realign energy flow). Mixing pranayama (breathing exercises) and yoga postures (asanas) using a Kundalini Yoga set can activate your chakras and lead to a Kundalini Awakening.

What is Kundalini Yoga?

You may have heard of the term Kundalini rising; this is the purpose…


Sound, from the calming melody of a lullaby to the rhythmic beating of a drum contains powerful forces, but the most impactful noise is the sound of the universe: om or aum. This vibration is said to be the essence of god in many religions as well as the primal hum of nature. By connecting to the om vibration, we can regain balance and heal the mind and body.

Origins of Om

Referred to in the ancient Hindu Veda scriptures in Sanskrit, the scared sound of om exists everywhere, is everything, and connects everyone to the source of creation. It can also be…


The fastest way isn’t always the safest or most efficient way; this is the Kundalini conundrum. On a microcosm level, Kundalini yoga for beginners is a slow progressive practice throughout one’s current life cycle; on the macrocosm scale, it is a light-speeds way of advancing your soul through the larger cycle of reincarnation by resolving all your past and current karma. But, to take things slow, while your ultimate goal is to move fast, can be a challenge.

What is Kundalini?

The unused divine feminine energy (shakti) that when released leads to true enlightenment and emancipation is Kundalini. Represented as a serpent, coiled…


I am a feminist. I hate to be called a feminist.

On the one hand, women are sexualized, demoralized, segregated, and stereotyped constantly. We struggle as a minority even when we are not a minority. We have to prove ourselves time and again that we are strong, but are ridiculed when we are too sensitive, when our sensitivity is our biggest strength in a world full of apathy.

On the other hand, women distinctly and purposely divide themselves apart from male counterparts. We make ourselves the minority by making “woman” the first characteristic of our personalities. …


Humans think too much. And ironically, the notion to trust the universe is an oxymoron created only by those who think too much, but want to think less.

Sometimes there seems to be no explanation for the horrible things that happen in this world, yet as humans, we like explanations. That is why to trust the universe is one of the greatest scapegoats ever developed by mankind.

I am not saying that there is no benefit or validity to the concept of going with the flow, quite the contrary.

For starters, thinking and worrying about the troubles of the world…
