The Courage to Choose: An Interview With Elizabeth Gilbert, Part 3
An Interview With Elizabeth Gilbert, Part 3
Omega: Women in the 21st century are forging new paths while being held to impossible “women's magazine” standards—“perfection” and “balance” are words you encourage women not to use.

Omega Institute Who Will Live Your Life? by Mark Nepo
This is what the great choice comes down to—the great conflict between first-hand experience and tradition, between spontaneity and decorum, between compassion and obligation. Other life forms have no part in this. It’s strictly a human affair. The sapling doesn’t look to its elders for approval. It just grows toward the light. The bee feels its hunger and finds its honey. It doesn’t embark out of any sense of duty. When I speak of these things, distrustful minds, against all intention of getting involved, blurt out but we have to live in the real world. More

Omega Institute How To Resolve Emotionally Charged States by Miles Sherts
The support that is most helpful when we are in an emotionally charged state comes from other people empathizing with our situation and showing they care. This validation of our experience can then give us the courage we need to face the issue for ourselves. Imagine that you are walking alone in the dark. Perhaps it is on a dark street, in a dark room or hallway, or out on a trail at night, and you likely feel some discomfort or fear.  More
Omega Institute You Only Need Four Seconds by Peter Bregman
“A four-second pause—the time it takes to take one breath in, one breath out—can be powerful enough to subvert a poor decision and replace it with a smarter one.” —Peter Bregman This morning, like every morning, I sat cross-legged on a cushion on the floor, rested my hands on my knees, closed my eyes, and did nothing but breathe for 20 minutes.

An Interview With James Van Praagh
Omega: How do you define the soul? James: Instead of using the word "God," some people prefer to use terms like "the Divine," "the Creator," or "the Source." I have started using an acronym I created call O.N.E. It stands for Omnipresent Nurturing Energy. This term serves two purposes: besides letting people know I believe that everything is one and the same, it establishes my belief that everything is energy. More
