I used to think that religious dogma was the outgrowth of fear and unresolved parental issues. Certainly, much modern religion has lost touch with its more mystical roots, but there is no question that what ails the average American, as British writer and journalist Graham Hancock says, is a disconnection from Spirit. Fear is an infectious disease. You can catch fear but you can’t catch faith. That has to come from within. —Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez More
Using Illness to Find Wholeness
Every pair of apparent opposite or contradictory symptoms shares a common ground and tends to revolve around a common theme. For example, “letting go” is the central point in the case of both constipation and diarrhea. Underlying both low and high blood pressure is an avoidance of conflict. Just as joy can express itself in tears or laughter, or as fear can lead to either paralysis or flight, every theme is capable of expressing itself in apparently contradictory symptomatic forms.  More
You don’t necessarily have to give up your favorite foods when you are looking to eat better. Sometimes you just need to find a healthier version. This recipe may be the world’s healthiest pizza, according to Jon Gabriel. He says the egg yolks are a more complete protein that contain healthy fats and are easier to digest than other proteins, and the psyllium husk—a form of soluble fiber made from the husks of seeds from a type of plantain—helps bind the crust. Makes 4 10-inch pizzas More

Sticking to our commitments is one of the most challenging things to do. Why is that? Because we have an unreal view of what it means to be human: We like to think of ourselves as finished products, but we’re not. We are actually works in progress. More
Bibimbap is a terrific recipe for a fun, participatory potluck. The host can make the rice (which is typically served crispy) and eggs, and each guest can bring a topping. Guests can also bring their favorite condiments to share, and even their own bowl or chopsticks.    Serves 8 Ingredients & Directions for Rice  4 cups of rice 1/2 tablespoon ​sesame oil More
Gratitude—the feeling of deep appreciation—has long been a staple of religious traditions, and it's becoming more and more popular today.  Oprah has kept a written gratitude journal for more than a decade and now keeps one using an app. More
Jon Kabat-Zinn defines mindfulness as “awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, nonjudgmentally.” Many credit him with bringing this practice into the mainstream (through his Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program), but the practices have been around in many forms for thousands of years and can be found in various spiritual traditions More
Noted Buddhist Psychology teacher Jack Kornfield describes mindfulness as “a practice that enhances our well-being in every way, from developing increased mental clarity and deep relaxation, to handling stress in healthier ways and escaping the grip of our reactive emotions.”  More
