I have spent a significant amount of time of my working life with the feeling of not being good enough, filled with regrets. If I had not resigned from xyz company, I would have been a director by now; if I had done this, I would have ‘x’ money; if I had not been emotional, I would have had dual citizenship, and similar such regrets.

Beginning with Isvarpranidhana, Patanjali leaves it all to the individual to select any preliminary conditioning process (Ek Tattva Abhyasa) that he may himself desire, according to his own choice. What is essential, however, is that it should so completely engage his Chitta that he becomes steady, and remains so.
Popped and Stir Fried Sorghum or Dhaani

Feeling, Sensitivity and Consciousnes
ROS PEARMAIN, Ph.D., has been integrating the fields of psychology, psychotherapy and spirituality, through both practical and philosophical approaches, for over 40 years.

Gluten and dairy restriction:OUR CHILDREN DESERVE BETTER!
When children experience respiratory, digestive, behaviour, or other health challenges, many parents naturally seek out dietary solutions. Unfortunately, the prevailing confusion in this area provides fertile ground for misconceptions and counterproductive dietary fads. Among contemporary trends, avoiding gluten and/ or dairy products are two of the most popular. Does taking your children off gluten or dairy really help?

Shure Aonic 50: Excellent Audio, Merely Good ANC
The Shure Aonic 50 headphones are priced to compete with the best noise-canceling headphones on the market. Sonically, they deliver a wonderful audio experience that will appeal to those seeking an accurate sound signature. When it comes to active noise cancellation (ANC), however, the headphones are merely good, not great. So while we enjoy the Aonic 50’s comfortable fit and quality sound, if ANC is your top priority, you can find better options in this high price range, including the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700.
