Mahatma Gandhi – Peace and Truth at the Heart of Freedom

We all can agree that Mahatma Gandhi is one of the most exceptional human beings who has ever lived. His fight for freedom in the most nonviolent way imaginable is the stuff of legends, and deservingly so.

His actions have been studied for a long time and are essential knowledge we all should know. The man managed to free an entire country by relying on peace and truth only. He didn’t have to start a war, and he didn’t have to kill India’s oppressors.

Gandhi’s methods have inspired other prominent names of the 20th century like Martin Luther King Jr and James Bevel.

Albert Einstein and His Quantum Leap for Humanity

One of the greatest scientists of all time was the renowned physicist Albert Einstein. He brought us the theory of relativity, the famous formula E = mc2 which every person, from the age of ten to 110 knows.

He brought us into quantum mechanics as well. He laid that foundation on which the downright bizarre quantum mechanics was born. He couldn’t find a way to ‘finish’ quantum mechanics, but he knew that it was correct, and he knew that it could explain everything. As he said: “I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.” a quote that might explain why he never ceased to work and discover.

Rudolph Steiner – The Wisdom of the Being

The system of education we have today is filled with flaws, and it’s about time we did something to create a positive change, no matter how small or large. We need to do everything we can to create a better system for our children and all the youth of the world of tomorrow.

We want to make the people across the globe happy, and we need to do it from an early age. The problem with mainstream education today is that it doesn’t consider happiness, and it doesn’t recognize the child’s spiritual, moral, and creative side.

There are plenty of systems that want to change this, but Rudolf Steiner is the one who envisioned a unique system that genuinely incorporates the entire being, almost a full century ago.

The Teachings of Sadhguru – A Prosperous World Is at the Tip of Our Fingers

The world we live in is a world filled with problems that need fixing. There’s a lot of inequality, violence, and unhappiness. However, we should add that there is still a lot of happiness in it as well as prosperity.

The problem lies in the fact that there are all of these numerous conditions for a better, happier, more prosperous world, but we lack the consciousness needed to mold such a world fully.

Many of us have the potential to be the leaders who will change the world for the better. What we lack is pure self-awareness. That’s what Jaggi Vasudev, better known as Sadhguru, wants to teach us. His Isha Foundation was created to provide that heightened self-awareness that we all need to make a difference in the world.

The Importance of Self-awareness for Improving Well-being

Self-awareness, self-knowledge, introspection – however you want to call it, is a crucial aspect of each of us and our lives.

It’s about finding out who we are and becoming truly self-aware as individuals. It’s about understanding our needs, failings, desires, our habits, and all the other things that make us who we are, that make us unique in this endless universe.

There’s no one else out there like you, and you are the only one who can honestly know yourself. But self-awareness is crucial for a wide range of reasons – it can enable us to be better, improve ourselves, build specific aspects of ourselves, but most importantly – it can help us improve our overall well-being. That will, in turn, lead us towards a happier and fulfilled life.

The Huge Importance of Self-Awareness

How to be comfortable with uncertainty

We, humans, are a strange creature – we crave stability, yet we often get bored by it. In turn, we desire uncertainty because we deeply know that in it lies the seed to opportunity, the path to success. No leader in the history of humanity has ever managed to do great things, to bring about the betterment of our species by sticking to the known, to the comforts of security.

We know that we have to follow uncertainty even though it frightens us, but we are scared of all the uncomfortable and unexpected things that might come with it. We always think that it can quickly happen that we’ll end up being hurt by them.

Loneliness and the importance of belonging

Loneliness is the plague of the modern world. It leads to less happiness in every human being. Being humans, we strive to belong; we strive to be a part of something. We are eager to be connected to others. There are those who think that they are better off by themselves, but that can never be the case.

Staying isolated can never achieve anything. It is the first thing that every leader should know because a leader’s primary motivation should always be their people. No matter what kind of a leader you are, your people should be your top priority. The value they give to you and your movement/business/brand cannot be measured. Everything else comes on its own after acknowledging your peoples’ value to you.

Awakening the Dreamer – The Process of Rousing in a Volatile World

The world we live in is a volatile one. Even though these are probably the most peaceful times we ever had in the history of humanity, with the fewest impoverished people and a lot more that’s equally good, it’s still a volatile period.

It is still an age filled with a lot of problems that need to be taken care of – global warming, a massive gap between the rich and poor, and much more.
