|All too often we spend our days in the fast lane...|
striving, producing, achieving, working hard. Or we find ourselves overwhelmed with problems to solve, fatigued with information overload, deluged by endless needs clamoring for attention. We miss the simple things that keep our lives in balance and sustain our souls.
For thousands of years wise leaders and thoughtful sages--from Jesus to Buddha, Lao Tzu, Gandhi, Thoreau, and more--have preached the virtues of simple living. As the pace of society accelerates, a renewed interest in mindful simplicity has surfaced. Some call it "down-shifting," "right-sizing," "mindfulness," or just plain "simple living."
Research polls and studies confirm a shifting trend. Perusal of most any bookstore bears witness to the renewed attention this concept has attracted.
The essence of mindfulness is to be aware of what you are feeling, thinking, sensing, wanting, and doing, at any given moment. The benefits--for yourself, for your loved ones, and for the broader world--are profound. Like any life skill, it grows with practice.
Take a pause for reflection: Slow down. Stop. Relax. Still. Center.
Be mindfully present.

The success of YouTube has inspired many imitators looking to address niche markets. GodTube
is the latest example I've discovered, it's a video-sharing website for Christians and Non-Christians who "are interested in Christ, Christianity, and the meaning of unconditional love and faith".
In the FAQ you can read "We are a family-friendly site where people of all ages, races, backgrounds, and nationalities can share and belong."
Here is an example. Which Way To Pray:
Christians aren't the only ones using the Internet to share their faith. For Jews, there's JewTube

USB Digital Bible Keychain
| This story of Jesus Christ collectible portrays the Passion of Christ as a fully sculptural 3-dimensional inspirational tabletop home decoration.|
Meticulously handcrafted and hand-painted in intricate detail, with 13 individual scenes and 45 sculpted figurines.
It lights up! Warm light glows from every window, from a guiding star, from Jesus' cross, and ultimately from the topmost figurine of Jesus resurrected.
Measures 15" high
Concept: A form of the player is inspired by the original Christian symbol, the cross. Indeed, we wear it in the same manner as a player - around the neck.
We are playing not only with the form, but with religious symbolsycs. This player immediately brings many questions - whether it is possible to listen to any kind of music on it? Whether it can keep on playing a role of the religious symbol? Does everybody have a moral right to wear this thing?

Carpe Diem Urban Yoga
Was Yoga und Carpe Diem gemeinsam haben
Über den Dächern ausgewählter Metropolen, wie Zürich, Wien, München, Amsterdam, Antwerpen, Rotterdam, Kapstadt - um nur ein paar zu nennen – werden diese Oasen der Ruhe und Quellen des Wohlbefindens zu finden sein. Auf wöchentlicher Basis werden die besten Yoga-Lehrer die Yoga Sessions, für Anfänger und Fortgeschrittene gleichermaßen unter freiem Himmel abhalten.
|Gerade in unserem Alltag, in dem wir oft an Bewegungs-|
mangel leiden, ist es wichtig, den Körper zu kräftigen und dabei beweglich zu halten. Geist und Seele sollen dadurch gestärkt werden um den Anforderungen des Alltags gewachsen zu sein. Yoga kann beides. Durch Yoga lernen wir einen Zustand der Ruhe und Gelassenheit zu erreichen und gleichzeitig innere Stärke aufzubauen. Eine grosse Regel der Yogaphilosophie lautet: „Tue das, was du tun kannst. Nicht mehr und nicht weniger.“ Das ist es, was Yoga für jeden zu einer zutiefst persönlichen Sache macht.. Carpe Diem entspricht dieser Philosophie. Die 100% natürlichen Getränke unterstützen Körper und Geist auf der Suche nach Reinheit und Gleichklang.
Ganz nach dem Motto von Carpe Diem – Nutze den Tag – findet auch diesen Sommer wieder die Carpe Diem Urban Yoga Serie statt.
Für die Anmeldung zu Carpe Diem Urban Yoga suchen Sie sich Ihre Stadt und registrieren Sie gleich für Ihren Wunschtermin.
What yoga and Carpe Diem have in common?
These oases of peace and sources of wellbeing can be found on the rooftops of selected metropolises such as Zurich, Vienna, Munich, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Rotterdam and Cape Town just to name a few. Top yoga instructors will hold the yoga sessions for beginners and experts alike on a weekly basis under the open sky.
Precisely in today's modern world, where we often do not get enough movement, it is important to keep the body strong and flexible at the same time. Spirit and soul should be strengthened in order to take on the challenges of our daily life. Yoga can do both. Yoga teaches us how to attain a state of peace and serenity, while at the same time building up inner strength. The golden rule of yoga is: "Do that which you can. No more and no less." This is what makes yoga a very personal experience for each and every one of us. Carpe Diem follows exactly this philosophy. The 100% natural drinks help the body and soul in the search for purity and harmony.
In keeping with the motto “Carpe Diem – seize the day”, the Carpe Diem Urban Yoga Series will take place again this summer.
For Carpe Diem Urban Yoga, look for your city and register right away for the date you like.

The translation is, "divine states of dwelling." The "Four Gates", when lived fully, establish the foundation for happier, healthier living, and an enlightened society. 1. Loving-Kindness - 2. Compassion - 3. Joy - 4. Equanimity or Serenity.
