    It's Not What You Eat...

      I'm sure you have heard the saying, "You are what you eat."  We all have at one time or another.  I know that what we eat does have an impact on our health and I do believe in herbal remedies.  But I don't believe we become what we eat. I have...

    Like Self-fulfilling Prophecy?

    if that's the case, than it's completely true. What you say to yourself has a big effect on who you are. If you say negative things to yourself all the time it will reflect in your personality, likewise with the positive. I believe that you have more power over yourself than...

    I Do

    So that is why I am considering never posting any kind of negative moods in the "how are you feeling" feature here on EP again. I am sleepy as hell right now because I only got like two hours of sleep last night but I must not sleep yet. I will tell myself that I am...

    "if parents honor only the human dimension of the child but neglect "Being", the child will sense that the relationship is unfulfilled, that something absolutely vital is missing, and there will be a buildup of pain in the child and sometimes unconscious resentment...

    That Inner Voice

    I believe we all have an inner voice that observes and communicates with us.  To me this inner voice or "self talk" is the way we deal with our experiences.  It is the part of us that is turly us.  The part of us that was shaped from early childhood. ...

    Thinking Yourself Up And Down And Up Again

    I am an optimist with high ideals, big ideas, and abundant energy.  As a little girl I was encouraged to put my energy toward setting goals and finding ways to attain them.  My family of high-achievers all shared the same belief about thinking through a situation and...

    Who Do You Want to Be?

    I believe our minds are very powerful, and our thoughts tend to create our realities. If you see yourself as being very smart, for instance, you will act upon that inner picture you create of yourself and therefore become smart. This is because you will behave like an...

    In a Bigger Sense

    We are given the magnificent power to control our reality. Everything that you think and every way that you interpret reality has the power to effect how the universe will relate and respond to you. Because you are infinitely connected to the universe, you have the power to...

    An Ephiony

    When I was young I really struggled with confidence and was very insecure; self loathing was putting it mildly.  To say I didn't have many friends was an understatement.  But one day, I decided, hey, I'm just as smart and likable as everyone else..  what the heck...

    Grendels En Tralies

    Deur die tralies van my hartkamer sypel daar 'n sonnestraaltjie deur. Hier waar ek donker en koud weg van die wêreld my kamoefleer. Ek sonder masker kruip weg in die diepste hartpunt waar niemand my kan vind. Weg van die wêreld se valse plastiek en gestroop om net myself te...
