On the road with my sword

In fact, the only reason I think is that I want to do more with my life. I like to get more out of it because it gives me satisfaction. That's why I don't like to think on an average day. Sounds paradoxical, right? You say you should think better …

All that matters is my relationship to you

Can't be complete outside of the street

High Blood Pressure Cerebral vessel raptures and myocardial infarctions, which cause great harm to the human body, are chiefly brought about by high blood pressure.

Don't rush away

Can't leave it alone

You will find a purpose

Quantum physicist Amit Goswami agrees: We cannot understand quantum physics without introducing consciousness into it. Penrose, with his co-collaborator, anesthesiologist Dr Stuart Hameroff, declared: We conclude that consciousness plays an intrinsic role in the universe. And perhaps most significantly, Max Planck, one of the founders of quantum physics, stated in …

You don't know what it is

I've worked with clients who have whole baskets full of them - unused, gathering dust and well past their expiry dates. Instead, donate any unused in-date samples to women's charities that can make good use of them. The medicine cupboard A well-organised medicine cupboard will save you time and money, as …

I'm kicking off from centre field

So instead of letting them get out every toy and puzzle in the house and making a mess all over their bedroom floor (and every other area, too), encourage them to get things out one at a time. When they've finished with it, have fun picking up all the pieces …

The silence round the cascades

It was like hearing spirit knock on a door that would eventually open to time and space. Miracle fails to adequately describe the transformation of spirit into flesh. And ever since, your presence and growth has ushered before us a procession of magical moments. Truly, if human beings only knew …

When that evening sun goes down

Crucially, melatonin does not induce sleep in itself - rather it's a regulator for your biological clock, making sure you sleep during darkness and wake with the light. The biological clock needs to synchronize with day and night. Anything that helps it get in step is called a zeitgeber and the …

You can't stop us on the road to freedom

For many Orthodox Jewish people, Passover is a time to spruce the whole house up, too. The religious imperative to get every bit of chametz (leavened food) out of the house and anything it might have touched thoroughly cleaned, is now also for many a chance to really have a …

You can take all the tea in China

It's how surfers take championships and artists go from homeless to the Grammys. I'm not much of an athlete, but there's one sport in which I feel it's all right to brag about my abilities for a minute: monkey bars, circa age ten. When I was a shrimpy, red-headed kid …

Get some heavy rest

So we can aim our restrictions and interventions to prevent as best we can the most common dangers, the most common bad events. And we do a good job of that. But like any curve, it trails off for a ways in either direction. In other words, there are a …

Don't want to discuss it

To intervene in this lone instance--when every minute across the globe weaker chicks are pushed out of nests by stronger siblings or baby seals are tossed between orcas as playthings before they're consumed--would very clearly have been more about assuaging our human distress at having to watch an animal suffer …
