5 Modern Da Vinci’s Rules of Success


Da Vinci Walter RussellWalter Russell is the 20th century Renaissance man you’ve probably never heard of, which in his biography shares the 5 rules that allowed him to accomplish so much. Each rule builds on those prior, culminating in the ultimate recipe for genius.

1) Humility – Make your every action in service of others. Ambitions seeking only to serve the self inevitably end in dissatisfaction.

2) Reverence – Become deeply aware that you are an interpreter of universal consciousness. Know that you have the potential to create anything, to co-create INCREDIBLE things, because you are a tool of the Universe, and are ultimately one with everything.
3) Inspiration – Once you are in a place of knowing with your one-ness with the Universe, you need only silence to bring about divine inspiration.
4) Deep Purpose – Inspiration is useless without direction. You must find your ultimate purpose in this life in order to make full use of your new-found knowledge.
5) Joy & Ecstasy – The joy of achieving refuels you with the energy required to carry on to the next achievement. It is by cultivating a deep-seated, untouchable joy that you become able to realize your genius without any interruptions.

Neil deGrasse Tyson on “What is the meaning of life?”


During a Q&A session on Neil deGrasse Tyson‘s show at the Wilbur Theatre (January 15, 2015), a 6-year-old – and three quarters – boy asked him about the meaning of life.

The answer he gave was simple enough for a child to understand, but so impressive that even left the adults there amazed and without words, see for yourself.

Namasté Neil deGrasse Tyson 🙂

The Psychology Of Why Valentine’s Day Ruins Relationships


Valentine's Day PsychologyValentine’s Day typically serves as a time to show appreciation for that special someone in our lives or as an opportunity to take a relationship to the next level. It’s a time to celebrate love in all of its forms, but can Valentine’s Day be a dangerous time for the health of your relationship?

Valentines Day

Alternatively, rather than instigate problems in relationships, Valentine’s Day could exacerbate existing issues (known as the “catalyst hypothesis”). Basically, Valentine’s Day may be a time when all those problems that you and/or your partner might have swept under the relational rug resurface and wreak their havoc. Struggling relationships may falter under the extra pressure of the holiday. Maybe you’ve been a lousy partner all year and your poor efforts on Valentine’s Day are just the last straw. Relationships with big problems were probably headed for a breakup anyway, and Valentine’s Day just provided the extra push to get them there sooner.
