Dancing with the Hologram

by Zen Gardner, Guest, Waking Times You have to admit, even if all of this is a construct for some seemingly unknown purpose, this is an incredible world we’re inhabiting. This spontaneous creative Force we’re engulfed in and intrinsically interwoven into is absolutely spectacular despite all the obstacles we encounter. That there’s an invasive parasitic force at work trying to gum up the works and usurp this magnificent design and claim whatever weirdness it simulates as some sort of alternative reality is absolutely ludicrous, yet this is the contest humanity and our planetary existence finds itself in. What is wonderful and should … Continue reading Dancing with the Hologram

HOW TO KNOW IF A GIRL WILL BE GOOD IN BED

You can’t tell just by how she talks or flirts, but there is another easy test. by Amber Madison There’s not much you can know about sexual chemistry without having sex. You can’t judge a girl’s sexual prowess by how she talks or flirts. But if there’s any somewhat-reliable indication, it’s good, old-fashioned kissing, which is way more important to sex than it’s given credit for. If you feel she’s a bad kisser—she’s tightlipped, or slobbery, or bangs teeth, or doesn’t know how to use her tongue—that could very well translate to how it’ll be in bed. Having said that, there’s … Continue reading HOW TO KNOW IF A GIRL WILL BE GOOD IN BED

10 Signs You’re Committing Financial Suicide Though You Don’t Feel You Are

BY DJORDJE TODOROVIC Being able to properly handle your finances is one of the things that proves that you are a mature person. This is easier said than done, and even if you are in possession of some extra cash at the end of each month, it’s still not proof that you’re being responsible. In other words, simply not being irresponsible does not necessarily make you a prudent individual. The act of financial suicide is not something that happens instantly, it is something you have plenty of time to back out from. Unfortunately, we can constantly see how people are … Continue reading 10 Signs You’re Committing Financial Suicide Though You Don’t Feel You Are

“You” Don’t Exist: Why an Enduring Self Is a Delusion

Mindfulness practice increases our capacity to ride the waves of pleasure and pain. By Ronald Siegel What if our therapeutic goals of improving self-esteem, developing a stable and coherent sense of self, and identifying and expressing genuine, authentic feelings all turn out to be symptoms of delusion? And what if the current mindfulness craze—if we take it seriously enough—changes who we think we are and what we’re trying to do in therapy? Like atomic energy in the 1960s, mindfulness is lately being seen as the cure for everything. Depression, anxiety, alienation, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, financial difficulties—you name it and … Continue reading “You” Don’t Exist: Why an Enduring Self Is a Delusion

Little Known Fact: Police Can Track You With Your Printer

by Joshua Krause By now most of us know that the government can read our emails, and listen to our phone conversations. They even know where we are at all times, especially if we use GPS. But their ability to track us goes way deeper than that. In some cases, they don’t even need you to carry a voyeuristic gadget to track you down. In fact, if they ever get a hold of something you printed from your computer, they can find you. Canon and Xerox both design their printers to embed a code on every page they ink. If … Continue reading Little Known Fact: Police Can Track You With Your Printer

Vatican’s chief exorcist warns that practicing yoga is ‘satanic’

By Jonathan Benson | Natural News The successor to Father Gabriele Amorth, the Vatican’s former chief exorcist for 25 years, has come out in condemnation of fantasy novels and yoga, declaring both to cause demonic possession.
