Globalization, nationalism, and the relations between them have been the subjects of debate for many years. The World has become very different from what it was, because of globalization.

1975-08-09 Moscow, Russia / Eyes Wide Shut / Augen weit Geschlossen / De olhos bem Fechados / Ojos bien Cerrados

By 0 , Permalink

Eyes wide shut for ladies is the only way they can affectively tune in with their partner. Lean in, close your eyes, and kiss. No matter how kisses differ in partners, in levels of passion, it seems as if ladies have all been trained to never (repeat: never) open their eyes during a kiss. Humans are not ...

Grow in wisdom and Compassion / Wachse in Weisheit und Mitgefühl / Cresça em sabedoria e Compaixão / Crecer en sabiduría y Compasión

The accumulation of material wealth and large bank accounts mean nothing at the moment of death. In actuality, the entirety of life is a preparation for dying. Living totally in the present moment allows you to create a fulfilled life and to face your impending death openly and with dignity. The realization that death can ...

Social media in general, and Instagram particularly, has a reputation for making its users feel rubbish about themselves. Instagram is the worst platform for mental health, and social media is fuelling a mental health crisis.

Creative thinking involves dual and often opposing qualities such as convergence and divergence, control and abandon, order and disorder, certainty and uncertainty. Consider what you are doing when you plan your day, your week, your year: you are trying to exert control over life, and predict with your plans the course your life will take today, ...

Everybody is the ultimate Reality / Jeder selbst ist die ultimative Realität / Todo mundo é a realidade Final / Todos son la realidad Final

The ultimate reality is the absolute nature of all things, a personal being (a personal and loving God), an impersonal being (all personal beings), or an eternal truth or principal that governs the universe. All three are just different manifestations of the same ultimate reality. No matter how much you know about ultimate reality and how much you ...

The invisible Power / Die unsichtbare Macht / O poder Invisível / El poder Invisible

Consumerism is the invisible power which makes the World go round and money is its fuel. All moral codes and ethical values are being obliterated. The formula for success is money and material possessions. Kindness, loyalty, honesty are useless traits. Love, intimacy, beauty, the most sacred virtues are denied and replaced by the mere ...

Awakening The Mind / Den Geist Erwecken / Despertar a Mente / Despertar la Mente

To awaken is to step out of your identification with thinking by becoming present. It is a shift in Consciousness where thinking and Awareness separate. There is no more worthy goal in Human life than awakening your mind. Awakening changes the way you live and relate to the people and the world around you. Awakening changes how ...

Hans Christian Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales, who have been translated into more than 125 languages, and have become culturally embedded in the West's collective Consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well. His stories have inspired ballets, plays, and ...

Create Yourself / Erschaffe Dich Selbst / Crie você Mesmo / Créate a ti Mismo

If you can not find what you want, create it. If you can not find yourself, create yourself. Be somebody who reminds everybody of nobody. Be brilliant. Be the first. Be interesting. Be unusual. Be an expert. Always be better than yesterday but never as good as tomorrow. Make an impact. Leave a mark. ...

Desire to feel Again / Lust wieder zu fühlen / Desejo de sentir Novamente / Deseo de sentir otra Vez

There was the first time you had sex, your first kiss, your first date, your first day of school, your first day at a job, driving a car, swimming in the ocean. There was the first time you ran a race, the first time you bought a house ... Most of these things were firsts that happened ...

Do not forget Nature / Vergiss die Natur Nicht / Não se esqueça da Natureza / No te olvides de la Naturaleza

The debate about climate change is no longer occurring in the scientific community. Qualified climate scientists have long since unanimously agreed that the evidence of climate change is overwhelming, and that Human activity, particularly the burning of fossil fuels, is its main cause. Carbon dioxide has reached record high atmospheric levels. This has led to shrinking ...

Language of Nature / Sprache der Natur / Linguagem da Natureza / Lenguaje de la Naturaleza

I believe nature is a force of good. Good is not only a concept it is a spirit. So hopefully the spirit of goodness will survive. Nature represents rebirth, rejuvenation, regeneration. The task that we face today is to understand the language of nature. The fact that we lack the language skills to communicate with nature ...

Fiji really is the tropical paradise of your dreams. Endless white sandy beaches lined with coconut palms in the warm waters of the Pacific.

Success is not Happiness / Erfolg ist kein Glück / Sucesso não é Felicidade / Exito no es Felicidad

You may confuse happiness with accomplishments. When you achieve something new, when there is a new accomplishment to add to your success list, you probably feel happy. Only for a while. You tend to forget every one of your accomplishments very quickly and every failure sticks with you much longer.  Your brain prefers to remember all your failures rather ...

On 30 December 1935, at 2:45 a.m., after 19 hours and 44 minutes in the air, Saint-Exupéry, along with his mechanic-navigator André Prévot, crashed in the Libyan desert, during an attempt to break the speed record in a Paris-to-Saigon air race and win a prize of 150,000 francs. Both Saint-Exupéry and Prévot miraculously survived the crash, only to face ...

Love is an act of Surrender / Liebe ist ein Akt der Hingabe / Amor é um ato de Rendição / Amor es un acto de Rendición

To surrender to Love, you will need to pay attention to your own emotions, moods, or thoughts that might lead you to act in less than loving ways. You may need to surrender pride, a sense of self-importance, or the need to have it your way, to feel superior to, or to have power over ...

We are not designed to be Happy / Wir sind nicht dafür geschaffen glücklich zu Sein / Não somos projetados para ser Felizes / No estamos diseñados para ser Felices

A huge happiness and positive thinking industry has created the fantasy that happiness is a realistic goal. Chasing the happiness dream is a very American concept, exported to the rest of the World. 'The pursuit of happiness' is one of the US’s 'unalienable rights'. Unfortunately, this has helped to create an expectation that real life ...

Living in a world of Illusions / In einer Welt der Illusionen Leben / Vivendo em um mundo de Ilusões / Vivir en un mundo de Ilusiones

What you know about the outside World has been conveyed to us by means of your five senses: what your eyes can see, your ears can hear, your nose can smell, and your hands can touch and feel, your tongue can taste. You are limited to these senses. Everything you hold, smell, listen to, and ...
